Yep that would be the one.. Phobya 200mm thumb.gif I think the only other 200mm rad is made by antec. I got the rad from thekoolroom.com it came with a phobya red led 180mm fan which I'm currently using due to it being quiet and red.. But am thinking on going back to the penetrator for the better air flow... depending if I'm happy with my temps, I really think my cards could do with some more air flow.

I didnt know what everyone else was using either but its good to know that the 200mm rad fits in there good, I always assumed it was a 180mm rad.

Yeah same here- compared to my old Fractal Design Arc Mini it is very flimsy- paint chips of easily after mounting a hdd/dvd rom once. Definitely not the same quality but the more stuff you put in- it seems to get stronger biggrin.gif

I got mine last night as well, I love it! I knew basically there wasn't going to be a wow factor looking at it from the outside. If you wanted "wow factor" I think the FT-03 might've been a better choice. I ended up going with the FT-08 because of its cooling and possible watercooling for the future, and also the cable management. I didn't think I was going to be able to fit my Sea Sonic X1250 into the case but it fits! I took apart everything yesterday and its pretty sturdy. some of the metal work could've been better where the metal curves and bends but with the lid on, no one will be able to see anything either way. Overall I think its a great case and im just waiting for the rest of my parts to come in to migrate my system over into it.

dont get me wrong it is a nice case.. has lots of diffrent features adn such im just not happy with a few minor things, and the stability (when empty)... i think once my extensions get here adn my bay adapters it will be better... im gonna get a large ssd for gaming and use the 2 1tb for storage all in the optical bay.. gonna grab a second 6970 and bigger psu....

idk its a nice case, looks nice on teh outside... jsut needs to be loved from teh inside.

Overall its a great first time small formfactor case for me, im glad i got it, just wished it had a little more ****.. o thats cool* moments to the build

My plan is to do a window mod once I get everything setup on the inside, so I can enjoy it without having to take a panel off biggrin.gif!

Bought the case last week after reading good reviews about it and I am not disappointed at all.

359

I do have one question tho. I want to tidy up my case a bit (after seeing some of the impressive pics posted) and was looking to move the HDD up into the 5.25" bay that I'm not using. I want to keep the blanking panel in place and install an adapter behind it. Will something like this adapter fit? Will the screws be long enough to hold both parts in place at the front as the panel is screwed in place using some of the mounting holes?
