SilverStone Fortress FT01 power button help required

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi Fortress FT01 case owners

I just got my case and I have a bit of a problem. My power button appears to be unbalanced on my case, like a small part is missing that is meant to make it sit flat against the case. As in, it sits on a slight angle.

You also have to press it really hard to get to the 'click' turn on sound, like someone installed a spring that is way too strong behind the button. If true, this could be what broke the button, well, if it shouldn't be like this... It's easier to feel than see, but I might take photos so other people can check it for me.

Finally, I can't help but notice that the button feels kind of plastic... Am I wrong here? If not, it could yet again explain why one bit of it might have broken off on the inside.

Can people with this case please comment though and tell me if your case is similar, that is, the power button sits on a slight angle and appears to only have one bit actually holding it in place rather than two, making it balanced.

It's usable, but I am not sure if this is a factory fault or not. I have to say I was really excited about the case, but I'm pretty depressed after opening the package to find this issue, as small as it may seem. I really hope you can help me and put my fears to rest. But I guess I'm prepared for the worst, that shop doesn't have any others in stock either, and may not take it back just for a partially defective power button.


Take care,
Raz.

Okay, I've figured out what the deal is... the fan below the power button is pressing up against the assembly, causing the button to sit on an angle. To be honest I'm not too worried about that, I was scared the button itself was already half-way f***ed. So everything is okay.

On a plus note, it looks like SilverStone has fixed the filter issue on the top fan. You now remove the filter from the side (like the other fans in the case) instead of attempting to pull it from the inside only to find you can't actually get it out .

So I am pleasantly surprised to find that they fixed the one big issue I had with the case. I just thought I'd give people a heads up, it looks like the newer versions of the case doesn't have the filter removal issue.
