Happy owner

B. Harding, Amazon
28 January 2015
  • Summary: Sleek and stylish. A bit bigger than I expected, and definitely bigger and heavier than much of the competition. But, it looks so amazing in person that it might be worth it to you.

Great with some small quirks

Jacob H, Amazon
18 January 2015
  • Summary: I also own the FT03B-Mini (mini atx version of this case) and so I decided to get this for another build I was doing for a slightly more powerful computer. The craftsmanship is great in this case, there was only one issue I had, and that was the L angle of the power cable meant to connect to the...

Shes a looker

nicholas b., Newegg
19 December 2014
  • Pros: -small footprint -easy to remove panels -vertical cooling path -simple cooling with filter -looks lovely -unique
  • Cons: -very difficult to find correct DVD drive. most options are wildly expensive. When I ordered this case Newegg didn't even have a compatible drive. If you manage to find a drive.... you will still need an unusual cable to power it. -cable management is difficult, especially if you install the disc...

Great Case with some Compromises

Kyle S., Newegg
30 November 2014
  • Summary: Overall I love this case and it functions well for my mini gaming computer! There will always be the obvious problems when building a computer with a small case, and I think this case serves its function very well.
  • Pros: -Looks beautiful on desk -High quality aluminum sides -High quality fan comes with it -I kind of like the I/O on top of case as opposed to back -CPU water cooling works great
  • Cons: -The sides come off too easy, wish they would secure better -BARELY fit my 660 ti, should have an extra inch of card clearance -My GPU gets upward of 70-80 celcius, but taking the front panel cools card at least 15 degrees -Virtually no cable management -No room for disc reader with all my parts in

Beautiful and functional.

Throb Gobblin, Amazon
1 November 2013
  • Summary: This case is easy to look at. The 90 degree rotation of the motherboard creates a chimney effect, blowing system heat right out the top vent. My main issue with the case itself is the top grate is cheap plastic. It doesn't fit flush in the front left corner.

User Review

Sherman_H, NCIX.com
20 September 2013
  • Summary: Silverstone has made an interesting case that defies convention. It's good to have stylish alternative in the non-Apple world using mostly typical PC parts (except for the slim slot optical drive).
  • Pros: Distinctive case
  • Cons: Plastic a bit flimsy

Definitely NOT Portable

Ray Stewart, Amazon
20 August 2013
  • Summary: This is a really good case, it's as interesting and stylish as a PC case gets these days. I settled on this design after a solid week of looking but in one important department, it does fall short. I strongly recommend you look elsewhere if you plan to use this case as a portable PC.

Looker, hard to assemble

Jake LaRochelle, Amazon
1 July 2013
  • Summary: The case really does look great, however the instructions have some steps almost backward. As well, you really really need a modular PSU. That side panel was a giant pain to put on, and all of them come off extremely easy so don't plan on moving the case much.

Great looking case

El, Amazon
2 May 2013
  • Summary: I got this because I got tired of having a case that was the same shape. I wanted something new and this was it. It's a great looking case. I took a star away because it's not the best assembled case.

Unique

Carl M., Newegg
1 March 2013
  • Summary: Maybe go with a DC PSU, if you can. It might be small enough to fit properly.
  • Pros: Strong, solid, well built. Easy to work on considering how compact it is. The giant fan is audible but low enough that you don't usually notice it.
  • Cons: Even Silverstone's own modular PSU doesn't fit in the case without taking the 3.5" drive bracket out and bending a few things.
