Sorry, Mike, don't want you to feel unappreciated for all your hard work. I'm just cranky after cleaning the Solo for the umpteenth time.

Mike, the link on the bottom of page 3 to Cases and Dampening is broken; Chrome says you linked http://section11.html.

Edit:
QuietCat wrote:
FYI - The link for the Fortress FT01 review is broken:
http://www.silentpcreview.com/silverstone_fortress_ft01

That page is the first page of the case overview by another name. Which cryptically has 'Silverstone Fortress FT01: Positive Pressure Case' as the headline. However, if you click through the pages foolishly hoping to read something about the FT01 and get to page 5 and click on the FT01 link from the recommended table you arrive back at page 1 of the case overview where you can navigate to page 5 of the article and click on the FT01 link from the recommended table arrive back at page 1 of the case overview and so on and so on.

Not to be negative, but is this deliberate, as the FT01 is a positive pressure case and you wanted a tantalizingly close, yet unrequited recursive display so that peeps would give up and go back to those negative pressure dust-sucking cases like the Solo? :wink:


Did some digging, and here are Google cache backups of the article. Most of the images are missing, but you at least have the text to read. =]

Page 1
Page 2
Page 3
Page 4
Page 5
Page 6
Page 7

Edit2: The images still reside on the SPCR server...so you could save the cached page on your computer and open that, but then you'd lose the theme. Oh well, can't have everything. We can just wait for Mike to fix it I guess... :wink:

Good sleuthing, KayDat. Thanks for the search. It's all good 'cept for page 5 which links to the FT02 article.

I'd be happy to put the pages and pics back together again, but I think spcr is using a CMS, so the dynamic sidebar content would be lost. But, we could party like it was 2009. :lol:

Hm, strange. The link I gave was indeed incorrect, but I just searched again, and page 5 should theoretically be here, but it doesn't seem to exist. I got to the Google caches of the pages by searching "site:silentpcreview.com Silverstone ft01 article953-page5", changing the page number as I went. So I can get a listing, but the cache isn't working.

I have to add something to the GPU length debate : a Gainward 9800GTX+ DOES fit in a Solo (see link in my sig for pics).
However it will block one or two hard drive bays.

Just a quick heads-up: the site rearrangement has broken the P180 review link (as found in http://www.silentpcreview.com/article75-page6.html; link is http://www.silentpcreview.com/article_index.php#cases, should be http://www.silentpcreview.com/section9.html I guess).

Suggest linking to http://www.silentpcreview.com/article255-page1.html, which is the main review, part 2. There people can find links to the rest of the material.

Came across this while looking up the P180 specs in anticipation of my move to the Fractal Design Define Mini.

Finally a refresh!

Noticed some typos in the SOLO2 segment:
The PSU remains oin the top back corner, but access to is is improved. HDD elastric suspension mounting still remains...

Guessing someone didn't have their morning coffee ;)

Two small typos:

The comments of the "In Win Dragon Rider" and "Coolermaster Cosmos II" both say February 2010, instead of 2012.

Thanks for the sharp-eyed volunteer proof readers. 8) I think I caught & corrected them all.

On http://www.silentpcreview.com/article75-page5.html, the link for "Antec P280" goes to http://www.silentpcreview.com/antec-p183 instead of http://www.silentpcreview.com/Antec_P280 .

This is a fantastic list of cases. Does the date mean there haven't been any recommended cases since 2012? Looking for a mATX case around 25-35l very few made it onto the list, and I'm wondering if any newer cases have appeared that would be recommended as there's quite a few that size.

Thanks a lot Mike!

As an added bonus, given that there's no chart, I can't make any complaint about! :wink:

Fractal Design Define Mini might be worth mentioning. I understand the position of Solo II, but still (btw, Solo II has 42.4L).

Just an update: The CoolerMaster Silencio series is no longer available. (maybe CM have gotten out of the quiet case market?)
