Silverstone Fortress FT05 Review – The most luxurious looking Fortress so far




In Summary

Silverstone Fortress FT05 with a luxurious-looking housing on the market which is partially constructed of thick aluminum. On details, however, squandered the potential of the FT05. The top is made of plastic and the finish is not equally beautiful. The performance is reasonable and the installation options quite limited. It is anyway no housing for tweakers who often exchange their housing components. Would you instead build a just system and you do not deal with the components within it, you can buy less attractive enclosures. We find 160 euros too high a price.

Let’s face it, the average housing is not always exciting. Were they used boring beige boxes, now a cabinet is usually black, with or without a lot of grills at the front, side or top. The layout is not very changed over time: optical and storage drives in the front seat, the motherboard beyond. Many shocks more changes than moving the default location of the diet of the bottom to the top, there were hardly any.

Silverstone is trying all times change bring, especially with his Fortress- and Raven-series enclosures. Which are characterized by different classification. The motherboards are for example rotated ninety degrees in the housing, so the I / O ports upwards instead of back stabbing. That would improve the airflow, which is helped by generous fans blowing upwards from below.

We take the latest housing Silverstone Fortress, the FT05, progress and see if that realize different format and large fans know a quiet and good cooling housing.
