But I will stop by the clubs. I am seriously excited for this case. Now before I purchase it, what fans fit on the bottom other than 180mm's

I think I saw somewhere it is possible to fit four 120mm's also?
Not that I would change them, just out of curiosity,

the only serious attempt to overthrow the ATX specification was intel's BTX specification. currently only servers and workstations use BTX specification (specifically DELL workstations and servers) ATX has been around since 1995.... it's NOT going away anytime soon biggrin.gif EVERY computer on the consumer market today uses ATX smile.gif (yes even mac's use ATX these days biggrin.gif ) i seriously doubt ATX will ever be replaced due to the sheer size of its install base. it dominates the entire market with maybe 99.99% market share biggrin.gif the only none compliant form factor are in the extreamly small form factor or "appliance" class computers.

as for switching out the fans. it's not really recommended. technically speaking you CAN mount 120mm/140mm fans, but only through modding and that takes away the innate advantage of the airflow design in the case. as for other 180mm fans you can use, there are only silverstone and phobya fans that i'm aware of so choices are definitely limited. fortunately, the stock fans aren't bad. so there isn't much reason to replace them in the 1st place.

Well the case cmes equipped with 3 air penetrators Ap121 fans, supeb for cooling evry component in your rig.unless you want to mount a watercooling setup.

actually it comes with AP181's not AP121's. 181's are 180mm fans not 120mm fans. that's why most people fail to realize just how powerful of an air cooling case the FT02 is biggrin.gif they think it's got 3 small fans when in reality they have 3 huge fans biggrin.gif

I was actually in this situation not long ago, and due to space restrictions chose the RV03 over the Fortress. I am very impressed with it so far. I have a non-reference card with a dual fan setup similar to the OP and my max temps while 1080p gaming have been 71c. During heavy video work when my cpu is stressed to the max my cpu temps still only just get over 80c, and that's with my sad 28c ambient temps in my room. The airflow design works great imo.

I run the fans on low when possible, as at high they are VERY loud on high but I do have my case sitting right next to me on my desk. Under a desk may be better in that respect. And I quite like the look of it. Yes it's a bit plastic looking but it has that mean business look I like. I will upgrade to a FT02 if a change of desk/furniture allows later on though.

i vote for ft-02. i have one and couldnt love it anymore. I stuck with air cooling for a long time then noticed people putting in water cooling loops with the magicool 180 dual or triple rads.. Now i have a water cooling setup in it and it performs well, cleans up real nice, and the cable management for me is really good. just my 2 cents

WELL, I've ordered my FT02. It's on it's way, and will be here tomorrow.

Over the next few days, I'll do some documenting/photos of the transfer from my beautiful 550D. I think the think I'm going to miss most is seeing the motherboard. It'll be blocked now from my CPU cooler. But it should fit well in the case, and the case will have some lighting. Pictures should be up on Saturday for anyone interested! (Plus I have to wait for one of my GPU's to get replaced. Long story.)

And within a couple weeks after, new pictures including some braided cables and an additional of a Xonar Essence STX.

Thanks for the support, guys.
