FT02 since it comes with the fans. The AP 181's have a higher noise/cfm ratio than the AP-31 but that's because they're larger fans.

Correct me if I am wrong. But do either four of those cases have the option to add a fan/s to the side door?
That fan makes a big difference with GPU load temps. I could not imagine running my comps without one.

Although if I had to pick one of the four cases. I would go with the Silverstone PS06.

actually the ft02 has a special cooling system 3 fans on the bottom to cool all the components with the rotated mobo thingy so no side fan needed i believe that the define has 140/120mm fan slot on the side if a piece of a foam is removed

sorry for bad english

Correct, just looked them over some more.
The Fractal does have a mount for a fan on side panel.

Really this all boils down to your price range, if you even have one.
I voted in the poll for the PS06. But if I had the cash I'm going with FT02.
Did not realize how nice that case was until I had a better look.

Actually. How about comparing that case to other cases in its price range?
Never hurts to shop around more. I've had numerous buys that I end up second guessing.

Out of those 4 voted the FT02.

But I'm going to be trying one of these here soon: BitFenix Merc Alpha. That's one helluva case for 39 bucks.

No problem. There are quite a few case options.
Was reading Maximum PC a month or so ago, and came across the Silverstone RV03. It beat out seven other cases as far as load temps in a case round up they put together.

None of them. Get the Coolermaster HAF 912 Plus or Advance
