The Maximus IV Extreme Z is a good fit in the FT02 and will allow you to SLI MSi GTX580 XE's with a one slot spacing gap. Although there are other, cheaper options if the O/C option on the MIVE are not essential to you. However, apart from the technical features, the MIVE is a great looking board with its black/red colour scheme - so much better than the blue themed motherboards that Asus has outside ROG.
Indeed, I have experienced the paint chipping issues. Mainly on the widowed side panel at the corners, despite exercising great care when I remove/replace the side panel to clean the filters. In fact the chipping became more of an issue and it ended up with me performing a RMA on the case. My sig rig is now in a HAF X, which was to be used for a LGA2011 build over Xmas.
My FT02 came with the AP181 fans, but not USB 3.0. I bought my case from a local dealer in Prague, although certain German retailers did have the USB 3.0 in stock at the time for a price premium. Back on the subject of the paint chipping, some advice I can give you is that it tends to occur at the top left and top right of the windowed side panel. Exercise great care when replacing the panel as to minimise metal to metal contact in these areas. Thanks for the rep:)
