Cmon case makers, wow us with your design next time.
Check out the RV04 if you don't like this. The Fortress and Temjin line are geared for people (like me) who want a stylish case with great features and fuctionallity. SilverStone cases are unique.

I had an RV02 then a FT02, I am currently using an FT03 (loved downsizing). wink.gif I love Silverstone cases, but I am looking for something along the NZXT & Bitfenix Prodigy line (without all the plastic).

Man this one is so disappointing. when it comes to aircooling, there isn't a case on the market that even touches the FT02 in my eyes. I've been hoping they would update it or replace it with something even better, but this isn't it. Its ugly, not very special, and has no benefits over an FT02 besides the removable motherboard tray, which I find pretty useless.

I've owned 3 Silverstone cases, a TJ09 which I still have, a TJ07 which I sold, and my current FT02. All amazing cases. After the FT02, however, I don't think they've made a case since that lives up to their standards. That said, Silverstone will always be on my radar for when they finally get things right again.
Slowly upgrading.

I love my RV02, and I love the FT02 all the same. Love the elongated design due to the 90-degree rotated motherboard mount, and the aesthetics of the case in general. A bit disappointed that Silverstone decided to opt for a different mounting design when their 90-degree system has been so successful as well as popular.

That's because the motherboard tray is rotated 180 degrees. Look at pictures of the TJ08-E if you need further clarification.

Am I the only one that thinks this case is awesome? Awesome build quality, should be quiet due to large fans, basically a larger TJ08-e which is my favorite case ever. This case ought to also provide fantastic cooling since the pressure of those two fans makes air flow very solid and predictable. I envision myself getting a nice phanteks cooler to replace my AIO as these cases are really air-cooler friendly. Here is the comparison I am forced to make:

Server chassis have a few high flow fans at the front (such as san-ace or delta) and passive heatsinks over the CPU's since the directed airflow is so good. The RV04/FT04 is basically a quiet, upsized version of that with really solid directional airflow and pressure. Cases with fans on the front, bottom, top and back have weird currents and dead zones which really can hurt temperatures, but my TJ08-e could keep an i7-975 at 1.4x volts and a 6990 cool with ease. Needless to say, I am very much looking forward to these. I sure hope the FT04 will come with a window for about $200.

Also, if the 180mm fan spacing is appropriate, one dual 180mm rad would cool a cpu and 2+ gpu's with ease since a single 180mm rad tends to cool about on par with 240rads. The loops you could make in this thing would be beautifully simple.

Yup, I think almost everyone that has PS07 or TJ08 will know that this case is really good.

I actually really like this case. One thing that miss is silverstone should make hard drive mount mechanism behind the motherboard tray, so ppl can detached the hard drive cage completely and still has some room for the drive.

This case might make me move from M-ATX.. LOL

Looking forward to this case too. Loved the TJ08-e thumb.gif

I emailed Silverstone to ask about release date in the US. I was told that it would be available by the end of June, for all of you who were wondering.
