In SilverStone’s traditional fashion, the box is black with a large picture of both the silver and the black versions of the enclosure.  Below the handles on either side of the box, we find the specifications on one side and an introduction and multi-lingual feature list on the other.  The back of the box has a picture of the inside of the case along with the features being pointed out and labeled.  The box is rather large for a mid-tower box, but this is due to the Styrofoam that suspends it in place.  This being said, there is no need to worry about your case showing up damaged. 

Once we opened the box, we started searching for the included accessories package first off.  If you look in one of the pieces of Styrofoam that held the case through shipping, you will find a white box nestled inside one of its openings containing the accessories.  The bag of screws provided will cover all of your installation needs, and there is an Instruction Manual included to guide you through the process.  The 3-pin fan to Molex connector included is a nice touch, but we feel that adding an additional one would have been better for those that don’t have the headers free on their motherboard to plug in the front and top fans. 

The FT01 accessories package contains the following:

  • Screw package
  • 3-pin to Molex connector converter
  • SilverStone CP05 hot-swap SATA II cable
  • Installation manual
