Questions about the FT02

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, considering getting the red version of this and i just have a few questions...

1) I hear this case is super quiet, is this true? I primarily want a super silent computer.

2) I have heard some complaints about cable management... anybody with this case with some build pictures?

3) I have a gtx260 and i'm considering trying to obtain a second one, will this cause issues?

4) I'm looking at the h50/70, anyone got any idea of how well this fits in and how it looks?

5) Considering noise levels, with a gfx card or two in there, and a h50 in there, will it still be as quiet? The stock fans are supposed to be super quiet

6) Do the bottom dust filters really fill up as quick as people are saying?! Would it be better if i had it on a wood stand?

Thanks guys!

1. Yes the case is super quiet, I have the fans on full blast and they are just above a whisper, most likely your graphics cards, ect. will be louder than the fans on full.

2. As long as you know how to properly cable manage there shouldn't be any problem. If you have a modular PSU that would be helpful, but even in the event that you don't (I don't currently, TX950 super long cables, non modular, ect.) its not a problem

3. I've used tri-sli 470's and they all ran cool, 260's are no problem.

4. An H50/70 would fit fine on the top exhaust slot, though it won't really be necessary as with such high airflow you can use a good air cooler, though to each his own

5. It will be as quiet as your loudest component, since it does cool better than regular cases your GPUS will probably not crank up as much, they will most likely be the loudest factor, though the case does have sound proofing which helps, and the metal is very nice and thick as well.

6. Dust filters do fill up fairly quick, but that is a good thing, it means that it is catching everything, my case is always dust free, just have to clean the filters once every couple weeks.

Here are a couple pictures of my rig when I had tri-sli, cable management does very well, sorry that I don't have pictures of the back side, it has a neat little space right below the PSU, between the fan and side of the case that you can place a lot of unused cables.

fatality where are you going to find the red edition? I'm pretty sure they don't sell them anymore, it was only for a limited time.

Here's a pic of my cable management on the backside when I had an FT02. A $2.50 pack of cable clamps goes A LONG way.



And I also had a WC system in there:
