SilverStone Fortress FT02 PC Case flips your system on its face

There have been plenty of PC case designs that have flipped the motherboard every which way in order to ease installation or improve thermal performance but there have been very few attempts to improve access to the IO ports.

SilverStone’s Fortress FT02 attempts the rare IO port to the top configuration which should make plugging in all of your cables a snap and it neatly conceals it all under a sleek panel for those that don’t want to see their rats nest. Phoronix has the review:

The Fortress FT02 is still derived from the Temjin TJ07 aluminum uni-body frame and FT01 in some regards, but it has incorporated some of the design from the Raven RV01 with rotating the motherboard tray 90-degrees, its massive bottom-mounted triple 180mm fans, and other characteristics. The Fortress FT02 certainly looks different from the FT01 and the TJ07 due to the rotated motherboard tray it ends up being longer than it is tall. The dimensions for this case are 212 x 497 x 616 mm (W X H x D). The weight on this case that is made of a 4.5mm aluminum frame and 0.8mm steel body is 15 kilograms.

A very slick looking design which should go a long way to alleviating the stress massive coolers put on graphics cards.
