I really really really like this case. I just hoped I bought a m-atx motherboard. But I also like what I have currently. smile.gif

I bought the Black FT03 to be a dual boot Mountain Lion Hackintosh and Windows 8 machine and my experience has been a bit mixed with it. The fan cover falls off the bottom too easily, and the sides detach far far too easily. I find I really have to bend the cables coming out of the top to go out of the back otherwise you can't fully fit the top plastic bit (the front right peg of which has already snapped off) I might need to get some thinner profile DVI cables. The noise of the system fans is quite loud, the loudest thing in my system at the moment, so I might replace with some Sharkoons when I have the time. Still on the plus side, without a Discrete GPU it is really quiet in general, I get fewer complaints over the noise (it is in our bedroom) and I haven't felt limited by the number of drives you can fit, which I thought I might be, and it is quite compact when fully assembled. I feel that Silverstone might come out with a slightly updated and more refined version pretty soon to fix some of the issues above.

Cheers,
Robin
