    Finally finished changing my HAF 922 and 932 for two Silverstone FT02's. Replaced the top 120mm fans with Skyte SlipStream 1900rpm's and put Gentle Typhoon 1850rpm's on both heatsinks.

    i7 @ 4GHz full load hovering around 63C
    GTX 275 and the 2x GTX460's full load hovering around 55C
    (sorry no idea what idle temps are)

    Going on holiday soon, but come the end of september will be putting the 2x 460's in the RED ft02 and possibly 2x GTX 470 in the BLACK.

    So for now :D:

    I'd take either one, and slap a tripple rad in the bottom. They are both extremely attractive.

    Thanks for the appraisals :cool:

    Only problem with that is that the layout will dump the heat from rad back into case. TJ07 would be a better choice for water. But I prefer air personally so these were best choice.

    Very true. Once everthing has a block, however, ambient case temps don't mean quite so much. Just a fan or two for the HDDs.

    Very nice job on both.

    I'd rather take in cool fresh air into the rad and dump the heat into the system, rather than to push the system heat thru my rad.

    only thing i liked about the FT02 case over my RV02 is the HDD bays are a much better idea other than that they are pretty much the same on the inside

    they look great though :toast:

    It's not so bad if you can whip up your own case extension though.

    Exactly.

    But again, it's only meant for those people that have no need for a case.(but the extenders are in fact awesome overall)

    Yeah, if I ever switch to water think that's the best way to do it.

    The RV02 I believe has more space for PCI-E cards though. Just realised on the black case that if I were to go SLI i can't have physX with the UD5 board layout. And even if I had the EVGA's layout, with any optical drive simply can't run a third card. But none of my favorite games use physX so don't mind, yet a bit dissapointing.

    That's the only way to go, imo. Cases are a hindrance.

    To an extent they are, but it depends on the person.

    Personally i see a lot more disadvantages of running computer hardware outside of a case.

    How much space is there left to put a 120.3 rad in the bottom? Have any idea, or possible to measure if you can? Thank you anyhow, I just haven't came across any of these cases water cooled, not that I remember at least.
