Pros: Great for air cooled system with single GPU card.

Cons: Terrible for mid fan GPUs or "The MOD"

RV02B (RV02-E) a nice sturdy case. It's definitely cool inside. My SB i7 2600K worked great with an Antec H20 920. The bottom to top air flow works, but you need GPU cards to do the same. Mid fan GPU is wrong for this case.
I have two EVGA GTX 560Ti that are mid fan models. They blow hot air out in every direction. GPU1 fan intake is close to GPU2s hot back side. Hot air get ssucked back into GPU1. GPU2 runs quite a bit cooler with less fan noise. I tried some cardboard duct work, but the heat from GPU2 back and GPU1 case was enough to preheat the air. The best air fix was to pull the side panel off and hang a 120mm fan to blow on the cards.
I eventually did "The Mod" and cooled each GPU with an Antec H2O 620. There is not a good place to mount two 120mm rads, all things considered. I have a different case now. Anyone in the Phoenix area interested in trading for my old RV02-E?
This case is supposed to support radiators, but you have to pull out the bottom fans, place the rads there, and the hot air will flow thru your system.
It should support large rads mounted on the side panel. It's stable being squat with a wide stance. The side panels are reinforced and the window can be removed.
