After careful consideration and much regret I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com

In this review we will be looking at another awesome case from SilverStone called the FT01, the case is a major modification of the classic TJ07 and is designed to be smaller, stronger and provide better overall cooling.
The SilverStone FT01 comes in 4 variations much like the TJ10 we reviewed some months back. There are two basic colors, silver or black. SilverStone also offers versions with and without windows for those folks that would rather not show off their high-end hardware.
