  • Cons: Silverstone needs to keep an eye on overall variance of quality, Plastic support beam for GPUs does not work well, No grommets on motherboard openings, 8-Pin CPU Power Extension cable would have been nice, Hard-drive cage blocks access to motherboard plugs, Only one hot-swap included.

  • Conclusion: The Fortress FT04 is a big step up over the Raven RV04. Even though they share the same internal design, externally things have improved massively, with the new aluminium front and roof bolstering the case's aesthetics, build quality and overall premium feel.

  • Conclusion: As with their Raven RV04, I'm left with mixed feelings about the SilverStone Fortress FT04. In terms of build quality and adjustability, I think it's worth the premium over the Raven RV04, and frankly as far as air-cooling cases go I have a hard time really suggesting anything better.
