I totally understand dude, BTW where you at in Orlando are you right off 95 or more west? I drive back a forth between my house in VB and my house in Wellington,fl and would love to see it when it is done. I really want the case but don't think I will shell out the doe for it, but if I see it up close mite change my mind

Just finished my first build with the FT02. It's a great product overall, everyone who has the budget should definitely consider it. I had some small issues but that's to be expected as no case is perfect

Positives
-The case is stunning, this is one of the most elegant (and heavy) products on the market right now.
-Love the unbodied construction
-Window placement and size is ideal
-Airflow is fantastic, especially with the AP-181
-You will not need to buy another case again
-Did I say this case is stunning?

Negatives
-Coming from an old Lian-Li tower, the SilverStone has good build quality but the case painting is below my Lian-Li. The paint is fairly easy to chip off especially when removing panels.
-The top is a pain to get off...probably my biggest gripe
-Window plexi is very prone to scratching
-Width of case should have been 1/2 in. wider for better cable management
-Priced $40 above what it should be

Temperatures
-With 1 fan broken on the Hawk (replacement soon), 57 max with 2+ hours of gameplay on BFBC2. Not bad!
-With only 1 fan (exhaust) on the H70 at 4.0, 56 max with 2+ hours of gameplay on BFBC2

Other Notes
-Those are not the old FT02 fans, I bought SilverStone grills to cover the ugly wiring and circular sticker.
-My new AX850 whines when put to work...bleh
-Led's were not this bright, 2" exposure

question for you FT02 owners im thinking of changing from my haf932 to the FT02 for soemthing neater and a litter more sophisticated looking

my quesiton however is can you fit a wifi pci card under the top cover ? i have a wireless N card with 3 antennas do they fit ? i assume they would cause they sit lower than a dvi connecter but i thought i should ask first as pretty much all the pictures ive seen people dont have wifi cards.

You can remove the four plastic clips that hold the top in place. It will still fit snugly and won't rattle.

The beauty of fully modular PSUs like AX850 is that you can swap them out without having to do any recabling. My first AX850 had pretty loud capacitor whine when the video card was under load, the replacement is inaudible from more than 5" away. Corsair's warranty will cover it if you can't do it through the retailer.

As a side note, have you ever seen the fan on your PSU spin? On both of mine I could freely rotate the fan manually, so it wasn't caught on a wire. It's hard to believe I'm never above 40-50% load, at which point the fan should start spinning.

If the antennas can flip to a 90 degree angel then you should be fine. The FT02 is the best case on the market right now if you don't have the desire to watercool, and even that's possible in the FT02.

I know it is not full modular but the Antec True power seriss is so quiet can hear a mouse fart (if you had mice and a Antec, not like I do)
