    ^ that was pretty much exactly what I was thinking when I had my FT02

    If the case was just a hair longer it would fit a bit nicer (the Rad).

    Only thing I would change would be toadd a hot swap 5.25 HDD enclosure (4x 3.5" drives in carriers) and a 5.25" drives adapter/cage to be mounting for 2 x Slim Optical Disc Drive into a 5.25" Bay

    Great builds guys! Planning a Raven 02 / Fortress 02 water cooled build. Quick question: If you have a "thick" rad, say about 55mm, in the bottom plus regular 120/140 fans, does a GTX 580 fit?

    I think it will not fit.

    I have a Black Ice SR1 + 25mm fans, and with GTX580 Reference Design i had like 1cm of space.

    Now with the GTX580 Matrix Platinum which is larger than reference... i had to replace my radiator with a slim one (MCR320 XP).


    BTW, this is how it look right now... after radiator and vcard changes...

    .. And if it's card like 30cm long 5970? And if fans on push-pull? :/
    Eek, how nice would be if case were a little notch higher.

    Looking good dude!

    But i didn't really get you. You say that you don't think it will fit but at the same time you say with the SR1+25mm fans you
    had about 1cm to spare with a reference GTX 580. Isn't 1cm enough?

    Sorry... english is not my primary language....

    I will try to explain it better... haha

    Ok, what i wanted to say is... You have less than 1cm space left between vcard and radiator with 25mm fan. But, also i have to admit i thought wrong with the size... i was thinking about radiators like Thermochill or XSPC RX when you said "thick" rads and did not read what you wrote after, "about 55mm" part... So, yes, now after reading correctly, I rectify, it will fit with a 55mm radiator.

    I am new to this forum, saw the thread and thought I would post. I dont have a boss Liquid cooling setup yet, but I am in the process. I am waiting on my new mobo to arrive, so I thought I would fab some mounts for a 240mm radiator, with side exhaust. I will be modifying the side of the case as well. Next step is to grab a water block for my CPU and GPU's and get away from my old H100 liquid cooler.

    Hey quicksilver, I look forward to the pics!

    I had similar mounts to the ones I just made, that mounted the Radiator flat-across the 180mm Rear and Middle fans, but the radiator caught all of the air flow. I felt that I could be getting better air-flow to my mainboard. That is why I decided to make mounts for the radiator, I am hoping that I see a noticeable decrease in heat on my mainboard/RAM etc.. If I had a full mobo/GPU waterblock setup, then I would definitively be rid of the 3 stock 180mm fans for 4 140mm with a bigger radiator.

    sigh... one day

    My first water-cooled project, hope you like

    Hey guys, not even sure if this post will work but here goes, first time water-cooling, lots of experience building PC's though. Very happy with the build, (pics should be attached). 2 issues though, firstly i am concerned that the RAM cooler i added is being heated up by the loop too much and i am going to 'melt' my RAM, temps got up to 55C after a little benching... on that note i am running the Prolimatech Blue Vortex 14 fans ( http://www.prolimatech.com/en/produc...?id=160&page=1 ) are these fans any good?, it'll be a pain to replace them but if i will get a significant performance boost with other fans id be happy to, any ideas? Or just any ideas in general for what you can see?

    It should, there are examples of all kinds of thick rads mounted there (in raven and fotress), including old EK 120.1 radiator (previous page).

    Clearance

    Hi guys,

    Great cases! I have a query though.

    My HD6990 is watercooled and I am considering this case. I have a 360 SR1 currently and would like to keep using it with the FT02.

    The motherboard (X79 Sabertooth) has a x16 PCI-e slot as the very last slot (1.5cm from the bottom of the mobo) which I could use. Can any of you guys see a possibility that I would have enough clearance for the card if I have it in the very bottom slot and the 360 rad at the bottom of the case?

    Lowfat....beautiful work there, brother. Can you talk to me about the rad/fan setup? I'm guessing that is a triple 180 (who makes it?) and can you just bolt it on top of the stock penetrator fans? Or did you have to remount everything?

    Thanks, you inspired me to make a decent home for my mid tower Lian Li, which is getting kinda warm with these 7970s...

    The radiator is a Magicool Slim 540 3x180mm. And you do need to remove the stock fan mounts and filters. The FT02 comes w/ adapters to use a 120mm radiator. However I use them as stands to hold the radiator up. It works rather well.

    That rad is getting more and more popular, some examples:

    Thanks for posting these pics, aerial. I LOVE the look of this case, and that radiator seems to be a perfect fit.

    I am strongly considering getting a FT02 due to this thread...
