This is just my opinion on it, but I find it to be the best case on the market if money isn't an option. If I weren't on such a tight budget it would have been the case I would have used for my build.

Hi guys, could i get your opinions on the air flow and temperature readings from any FT01 owners please?

i would like you CPU, motherboard and system readings! i have just recently upgraded from Antec 900v2 to the FT01 but i am finding the temps on the Antec were much lower than what i am getting on the FT01.

can anyone concur?

I received a warning that my motherboard reached 85c last night. The board idle's at 50 - 56c.

CPU - runs at 40c idle and 52c - 56c max load. CPU is fine as i live in the tropics but i do have AC running when using it at max load.

The 120mm fan works overtime removing hot air. especially with the V8 cooler sitting right in front of FAN, could it be blocking airflow? re: picture of FT01.

Does anyone have a similar situation and should i switch the top 180 around and vent air?

yur opinions would be appreciated, thanks.

I currently have this case and it's the best case I've ever worked with - period.

The airflow is fantastic and the dust filters are so easily changed.

The only thing I didn't like was how close the optical drive got to the side of the mobo, but I use an external optical instead anyway now.

It really is a fantastic case.

AZMA how did you get all your PSU cables through the back with the foam. i could not get the side panel closed if i ran the GPU and Mobo cables through the back. Well done. The case looks great by the way.

can you post a pic of your cable management.

Hey guys, I have been looking at the Raven 2 and Fortress2. I was wondering if you can fit a dual slot GPU in expansion slots 7 & 8 and still access your optical drives and hard drives on the Raven? Would you need right angle connectors to do so? Also can you use a dual slot GPU in slot 7 (and the location where an eighth would be) of the Fortress 2?
