Conclusion: All that said, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better conversation-piece SFF chassis than this one for the price. Experienced PC builders looking to try their hands at an SFF PC-build project will find this chassis a polished and intelligently engineered one, so long as they are willing to work with Mini-ITX and the unique expansion-card limitations that this space-saving form factor poses.
Pros: Classy, compact design looks pricier than it is, All-aluminum sides, Accepts huge video cards for an SFF case, Includes USB 3.0-to-2.0 header adapter
Cons: Supports Mini-ITX motherboards only, Requires costly slot-loading optical drive, SFX power supply, Front and back panels tend to pop off if case is pulled
Conclusion: The Fortress FT03 is unique, clever and innovative. SilverStone has laid the foundations of a strong mATX concept, and it's only a few tweaks away from realising the full potential of this space-saving tower.
