Temps on the TJ08-E are quite fantastic with the 180mm front.

But after some time reading about the regular FT03 it sounds like there is a intake issue with this case.
So from the 180mm move on to 2 80mm fans sounds less efficient.
But this case looks so awesome and it would fit much better on the place I'm moving.
I need to use the 2 80mm since my GPU is a 1070 Zotac Amp Extreme.

What do you guys think?
Should I still consider this build?
As someone that have both cases, the FT03 cooling is mediocre compared to the TJ08. You'll definitely get higher gpu temperatures but it's nothing to worry about as long as you use good 80mm fans (NF-A8 is a great option)

Should you build one? Only if you are not looking for the absolute best temperatures nor using unnecessary big PSUs.

One year with my original FT03 Mini setup, until I change my desk with IKEA LISABO, then I decal my FT-03 Mini with wood color.
And this is what I have now...

Looks nice vertwo, it's been a while since we've done wood grain-look on cases! Your implementation on the FT03 is superb.

I've skimmed through a lot of the thread but is there any consensus on what the overall best optical drive is to purchase for the full size FT03?

people recommend the panasonic UJ-265 or UJ-267 for a blu-ray burner

I know I'm late to the party but is there any reason this case isn't still relevant? I'm looking to switch from my H440 to something less....blingy.

Maybe because they are not ATX? Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX are relatively small in terms of overall sales volume when it comes to enthusiasts cases.

Sorry. Should have worded that differently. I’m asking if this is still a good case given it was released all the way back in 2011. Any reason it wouldn’t still be a good case for a new build going into 2018?

All the PC component form factors for motherboard, PSU, GPU, etc... from 2011 are still the same today so you are not giving up anything by building into the FT03 / FT03-MINI. If anything, the exterior aluminum shell that these cases have are more precious than ever since newer cases aren't designed to use aluminum as much as they used to.

Hi all,
I would like to buy this case.
How can I make the it most silent whilst still providing airflow to following :

gigabyte z370 ON
i7 8700
samsung 512gb m2


I like to know which coolers to put in, to provide the most silent setup.
Will not be used for gaming.. just office usage.

thanks!
