Silverstone Fortress FT02

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Does anybody have a Silverstone Fortress FT02? I am looking at this case as it is said to be one of the quietest out there and has good airflow.

Can anybody tell me if the Silverstone Fortress FT02 is roomy enough for all my other parts

800w quiet modular power supply (not decided on model yet)

Asus P8P67 pro motherboard

8GB G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series memory (2 x 4GB)

i7 2600k

Megahalems rev B processor cooler + two 120mm fans

1TB hard drive

256 GB SSD

GTX 580 + aftermarket quiet GTX 580 air cooler if too loud

GTX 460 for physics + aftermarket quiet GTX 460 air cooler if too loud

ASUS Xonar D2X sound card

Blue ray writer

DVD writer from old PC

Depending on where your PCI-e slots are you may have trouble fitting two cards in with a long blue ray drive. Just looked, it's a short motherboard, should be fine in all slots. My blu ray extends to the edge of the mobo, meaning i can't use my last PCI-E.

I have the same problem. If I was to install a dual slot card into the bottom PCIe slot of my board it would bump into the cables of my Asus Blu ray drive. I even have 90 degree cables on my Blu ray drive. It might fit but it certainly would be close.

I know that shorter DVD drives are available from Sony, Pioneer, and Samsung (probably others as well) but I have not seen short Blu ray drives yet.

I think everything in the OP list will fit.

The FT02 actually comes with a nifty little SSD mount that will allow you to hide it behind the 5.25 inch drives on the back panel side of the case. You don't have to mount it with the normal hard drives if you do not want to.
