It's just a large version of the TJ08 with lots of plastic.

yea nice quick pic finding, I was too lazy. actually to be honest the plastic doesn't bother me. its lighter and easier to mod if it your into that sort of thing. (and to be honest the "pin striping" on the raven 4 is pretty sweet)

what bothers me is the mobo layout, I really wish they would have stuck with the 90 degree layout and with the psu position of the rv03 and fixed a bunch of other things.

could you imagine a "ft03" with the position of the psu that the rv03 has, a bit more room, and the ft smooth style? pure gold

Yeah the 90 degree rotation is why I bought my FT02 and probably would have bought an FT04, but not after seeing the results earlier during computex.

And plastic is such a pain to work with imo tongue.gif I like Metal/Wood the best.

I have to agree, the 90° rotation is one of the things that drew me to the RV03. I love the way it is designed and laid out. Only thing I would have liked to have seen in an RV04 is more room for radiators for water cooling. RV03 was a bit of a trick to fit my custom cooling loop into with out modification, and I had to leave out my 120mm DD black ice extreme radiator.

I haven't nore do I an to watercool my rv03 because its air cooling performance is perfect IMO, but there is several places for rads, 120mm rad where the exhaust fan is, also at the back of the case there is a mount where u can place another one plus at the bottom where you can remove the 180mm fans and put 2x180mm or 240 or possibly 360 rad, plus you have the drive bays but that's where I wud place the pump and rez

Watercooling imo is mainly for looks unless you really intend to push your hardware. But yeah both the RV02 and FT02 can fit pretty much any size rad you can think of. With/without mods the possibility for watercooling is fantastic. And you don't need to remove the 180mm fans, just the filters.

1 - 3.180 : bottom
1 - 4.140 : bottom
1 - 4 ( maybe 5? ).120 : bottom

1.120 : top

More cooling than you'd ever need from simply going with the 3.180 + 1.120.

I know the case is amazing at air cooling, but I am water cooled on a custom loop. Had the Loop in a CoolerMaster HAF912 prior to purchasing my RV03.
I have my 120x2 rad(240) mounted ontop of the 180mm fans at the bottom of the case. My DD Black Ice extreme 120mm rad will not fit on the back of the case or at the top in the 120mm fan placement as it is over sized. I am only using a single DVD rom drive in the top bay and did gut all the other bays and placed my res and pump in the front of the case.

All in all the case works great at water cooling and my temps are better with the single rad now than what they previously were with two rads, its just not quite set up for it. biggrin.gif

Well I am in, I have a PS06 case but I am planning to go a little bit small so probably I am going to be getting a FT03, PS07,TJ08-E or the FT02. I like them but it is a though decision to choose only one btw here is the picture of the case:
