Essentially: FT03 Mini owners are screwed now, as there seems to be literally no GPU on the market (at least not an RTX 2070) that 1) has a blower-style cooler and 2) fits in the case.
If anyone knows of an exception, I'm keen to hear it!
Has anyone looked into this Zotac blower? Specs page says ~10.55 inches which is under the absolute maximum 10.63 quoted somewhere upthread. Bummer there's no USB-C though.

No offense, but if you were a victim to trends, hype or plain ole ignorance.. no one screwed you, you did that to yourself.

I don't know why anyone would buy an FT03 if they intended to have a discreet GPU.. that "it can fit" or be made to is hardly reason enough. You've simply been doing it wrong.

(this is where i'd go about my usual regarding mentality, "influencers" today and so on, but that game is lost. As we can clearly see)

Pride, honour and purity.

Just bought the Ft03B. Yes - in March 2019!

After many months of laboring I could just not find a case that would fit my needs (even the upcoming LD03) or Phanteks Shift.

I have two questions:
  • I want to get some custom length power supply cables. Does anyone have a suggested length or have you done anything similar? Maybe in the neighborhood for 30-40cm for all of them?
  • If anyone has a custom side panel for sale or knows where to buy one (for more breathing room) I'd love to know more.

All the best

If you just got the case, I would take measurements.

You do not need long cables for the drives. Depending on your cable routing the video card power does not have to be too long either.

Motherboard power connectors vary from board to board due to location.

I honestly just stuck all the extra cable in the back of the case where you can not see it.

I do not know where you could get custom panels. aluminum is fairly easy to cut if you wanted to do it your self.
