A picture with the mobo side panel off would be of great interest.
The back panel is indeed too tight, in fact, I had to do pressure with my dad to be able to close it properly.

Can't really open it right now for a picture, else I won't be able to close it again.

@ kcuestag,

No problem, I can certainly appreciate the fact that the rear panel is a tight fit! I swapped my motherboard recently for one with better PCI-E spacing for my HD6970's and have left the back panel off for the moment while I experiment with various cable routings.

I'm using the cable routing as shown in the picture (from another forum) as a guide. This is one way to deal with the excessive cable lengths encountered when using extensions in the RV02/FT02.

That looks A LOT better than mine does, you don't really want to see mine, you'll get scared of how badly it is compressed.

I may actually give it a try and re-arrange the back panel using that picture as a guide sometime this week.

@ kcuestag,

I'm just waiting on some molex and SATA sleeved extension cables - this seems to be a key factor in keeping it nice and neat at the back, as well as avoiding any overlapping cables. I use three of the CP05 hot swaps with the captive SATA and molex cables - this makes the bottom right area very busy indeed.

As much as I love the RV02/FT02 design, I'm not sure if it's the best case option for those who regularly swap around their hardware, but the cooling ability more than makes up for this. I'm curious to know what the Cosmos 2 will be like when it's finally launched, though I've not read anything new about this case for a while now.

It may not have the best back-panel to hide cables, but it has the best air cooling solution in the market with those AP-181 fans, and that really compensates it for me.

As long as the PC it's self looks good in the visible part, I don't mind how bad the back-panel looks.

@ kcuestag,

As long as the back panel isn't bulging then I think it's okay. Things would have been a lot easier if they had just made the case a fraction wider. Now it's manageable but you have to take a little bit of time and plan the routing.

New update!

Bought a pair of EVGA GTX580 for SLI! (1.5GB version, as I don't plan to do Surround at all)

Should have them here within a week, so I'll post some pictures and impressions once I have them.
