The SilverStone Fortress FT-03 Mini Case is the little brother to the FT-03 Case. This case has a distinct design, includes a 140mm fan, capable of fitting 10" video cards, CPU coolers that are 78mm in height, removable panels and much more. If you're in the market for a hardcore small form factor case, this is it.
This is a really quality post.I find this information through Google Search engine. I read your Article very carefully it is really very informatic Article,I bookmarked your site.
Very interesting article. The article touches many urgent challenges in our minds. It is impossible to be untouched to these challenges. Your post gives the light in which we may watch the life. Not everyday I can read something like this graminées
Rodney, If you can get your hands on a BitFenix Prodigy, that would be a great review for a SFF case. It appears to have amazing airflow and a unique design for mini ITX and uses a regular ATX PSU and full size CPU coolers.
I'll request one for review.
Hi Rodney! I'm planning on doing a mini-itx build and want to use an i2500k CPU and OC it together with a 670 GPU! Of course I'll be using the ST45SF gold rated version (coming out soon) to power this baby! In any case the Bronze version was able to power a stock GTX580 and stock CPU in case I become impatient. Anyway, on to my question, what would be the tallest CPU cooler you could fit in this case that would be able to handle a mild to mid OC?
Thanks in advance!
Max cooler height is 78mm but you might be able to squeeze a few more mm out of it.
Hey, has anyone here seen if there is any better SFX PSU to go with this case than the ST45SF that Silverstone are selling? I'm thinking about how cool it would be to use this case for some sort of hybrid between a nettop/movie theater/portable gaming rig. However, if I want to be serious about the gaming, I'm thinking I might need more than the 450 watts that the ST45SF can give, especially since I'm thinking of using one of the HD 6950 cards I have in my main comp right now. What do you think?
I can't think on any "gamer" SFX power supplies off the top of my head. For serious gaming I'd recommend going with another case, one that fits an ATX PSU.
Might as well go for the ST03 with a Macro ATX motherboard. You don't need to worry about SFX power supplies.
if you remove the 3.5 "drive cage from the bottom, there will be sufficient space for a normal ATX power supply
Unfortunately not, since it's designed for a SFX PSU. Remember, you could always go for the regular Micro-ATX FT-03 case.
I would love to have one of those: one for music creation under Linux and one for gaming in Windows. It would be nice if I can get 2-expansion slot motherboards for those systems and make use of AMD's FM1 socket so that I can fit a latest-generation APU inside of it. I really do not have any need for more than 2 expansion slots for music creation (not even an audio interface with microphone preamps) and gaming, so I could live with 2 expansion slots. For gaming, I could couple the APU's built-in Radeon HD 6550 with an AMD Radeon HD 6670, which could provide decent enough performance for gaming at 1280x720 as I don't see myself gaming at 1920x1080 as my right eye couldn't distinguish the game resolution between 1280x720 and 1920x1080 unless the graphics do not scale between different resolutions like Quake II.
Anyway, how quiet can a 140mm fan go? What's the dBA level for 5v? Will it provide cool air since heat rises?
Looks like a waste paper basket......
I love Silverstone products, but I have to agree that it does sort of look like a waste paper basket. I'll bet it looks like the best waste paper basket you ever had! This might make for some good mods, maybe slap on some recycle stickers.
Its a um, cute case, I guess it'd be good for a theater pc, as a gamer I can't look at this case thinking I'd have any use for it but if I had the money to burn, sure, I'd get one for a theater pc build but that's about it.
Still, looks simple and nice.
