Replace Silverstone FT02 with what? 9900k

Hi folks, I haven’t upgraded cases in a looong time (as you can see). I recently replaced the components with a 9900k, aorus master z390 board and RX560 gpu (short card). For cooling I have the NH-D15. Right now I have a SSD and 4 HDDs, but will likely consolidate the HDDs to a single 6-8tb drive.

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!

if you like the FT02, just keep it.

Lian Li PC-011, Fractal Design Meshify S2/Define S2, CoolerMaster H500P Mesh, ... there's a ton of good cases. Aesthetics are personal and if it's not a priority then just look at reviews and buy what has good airflow.

I do like the FT02. If it runs too hot, I'll look for a new case. Thx for the suggestions.

Those cases listed all have good airflow (the O11 dynamic only with properly placed fans), but none of them are better than your case. The FT02 is basically the same as the Raven RV03 which GamersNexus retested a while ago. Essentially they top the charts in thermals for both CPU and GPU.

Does your case have the upgraded 180mm fans? If I recall correctly, the early models came with weaker fans in the base. If you don't have the AP-182 (I think) fans, they'll give you some nice temp gains.

Really all Silverstone needs to do is modernize the case a little (USB-C, cable routing, and maybe some RGB and a TG window), and they'll sell a ton of them again.

yeah nothing beats the FT02 or RV02. I just swapped from my FT02 which I used from 2013-2019 to a O11D but only because I'm doing a custom loop.

I just checked and it looks like I have the AP-181 fans. I just checked and the lowest price on the AP-182 fans are $30 x3 Are they that big of a diff?

Looks like I was misremembering. Basically, as far as I've been able to find out, you'll get a very slight temperature drop at the high end, mostly due to the 182s having a higher RPM. At only a couple of degrees though, its not even close to worth it.

I think what I was thinking of was some of the early cases came with FM 181 fans which didn't have the grill on them for directing airflow. So in that case the step up to AP fans was fairly significant.

All you'll get from side-grading is better fan control. And that includes the new AP 183 fans as well. Though in their case, they add PWM control, instead of rheostat for the 182.

The case you have is one of the best air cooling cases- no need to change it unless you don't like the looks of it etc.

Nope...I like the look of this case. Sounds like I'll be keeping it for a while longer.

Actually I just checked recently and on the SilverStone website they list the AP183 which is relatively new. An improvement over the AP181 in min/max speed, has PWM and uses less power.

>>>

I have the FT05 and it's a great case. I just really dislike the lack of room in it... I kind of want to move to the FT02 but I don't want an older case. I'm hoping SilverStone will come out with a larger FT05 with AP183's in it.
