Well, that case is still the top dog overall when it comes to air cooling. Probably the only case that can outdo it is Silverstone's FT04 with the 2krpm AP182 leafblowers. And that's only because that case has the AP182s. With the same fans, the FT02, FT04, and FT05 and raven equivalents will all cool basically the same because they're basically the same case. All of them have the problem of an HDD cage blocking airflow somewhere, but that can be easily removed to improve airflow.

There is list of reasons why the 9900k is a female dog to cool on air:

Spoiler!


There is a new Fortress/Raven case coming soon
. It's basically like the RV03, but instead of having 5.25" bays, you have 2x120mm fan mounts. It comes with AP183 fans as well. They say it's a prototype, but that looks pretty close to a finished product to me. Unfortunately, it isn't that much different from the rest of the 90 degree cases that Silverstone has made, airflow-wise.

I'm not a fan of this new case, though. The next evolution of this design is a dual chamber one. Picture the O11 Air/Dynamic and FT02 making a baby. Oh, and add a 140mm top exhaust already Enticing, yeah?

Good news is, the O11 cases are very popular and successful, so it wouldn't be unnatural for competitors to take some design cues. Look at the NZXT H440. It was basically the O11 back in the day. After that, everyone started imitating it.

Kind of bad time to buy with computex just around the corner. Also the cases announced in ces like pc-011 xl coming out. Rather get the xl than the dynamic/air at this point.

The case is great but I’m wondering if there are newer cases with better cooling for the cpu since the 9900k is a fryer. The only thing about this case is it can’t fit the Corsair h150 pro, but that’s not as big of a deal now that I have the noctua.

I dont care about rgb, or even much about how it looks as it sits under my desk. The ft02 is quite heavy so getting something lighter would be a nice to have.

So net net, better cooling than FT02 and maybe lighter. Price isn’t a big factor either.

Any suggestions or just keep the FT02?

Thanks!
There is seriously no case I know of that is an upgrade from a FT02 , I had an RV02 but sold it to buy a corsair 900d - not an upgrade - nice shiny custom loop water cooling -- a few thousand Aussie $$$ later I wished I had carefully packed up the Raven so I could come back to it later , always preferred the look of the Fortress , but , where I am you buy the one you can find locally , so I got the RV02 - shipping on a case that size will almost cause bankruptcy !

I have had my RaVen RV02-E for years now, but I am waiting for Silverstone to release this case....

I am also waiting for them to release that case. My FT05 is too small inside and it's difficult removing / adding components. The Alta S1 is huge and looks amazing too
