Hello,

I am currently in the process of buying a new case for a PC. The Silverstone Fortress FT02B-W looks exactly what I am looking for (black, simple, no lights, good cable management options). But an issue I see with it is the room, espeically with the GPU.

So, can someone please tell me whether their Silverstone Fortress FT02B-W feels too tight/small for the components/cooling inside.

Based on the picture on this page with HD5970 installed space is fine http://www.silverstonetek.com/products/p_contents.php?p...
And based on this review it's biggest flaw is price http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/SilverStone-Fort...
It is an excellent case.

It's not small but it won't fit the new 6990 duel gpu card since the 5970 duel gpu barely fits.

I just wanna fit my new build - 2600K OC + After-market cooler, NVIDIA 570, maybe two later but not important atm.

Im just too worried i guess :p

You'll have no problem fitting your chosen hardware in the excellent FT02.

@Bigmac80: The 6990 and the 5970 are the same length at 12 inches - you'd need to take the fan filter off the fan in the FT02 but they will fit. However, I don't think the revised FT02 with Air Penetrator fans actually has those honeycomb fan covers - they're not needed.
