    As an FT02 owner this does not tempt me at all. They've missed out their USP of the 90deg rotated motherboard which set them apart from every other case on the market.

    Have to say I would take the FT02 too, especially in red and black... Still, well done SilverStone for raising the bar yet again with cooling.

    I have the FT02-WRI - Still the best case I have ever owned, and --at the current rate Silverstone are ruining their own designs-- will be for a very long time!

    I am 99% with you both but the 1% makes all the difference in that particular choice and that is that the layout is reversed from a standard system with the window on the right hand side which is useless for anyone who has their system on the right hand side of their desk.
    For me my choice would be an updated FT01 but in these days of smaller cases I want an FT01-Mini for m-ATX with 2x drive bays in the front panel and everything else the same... but smaller, if you know what I mean.

    Back to this current case I see nothing fantastic about it that makes it worth the money other than the usual Silverstone build quality, but then I knew this when they launched all the new series of cases and they all made me go... 'Meh...'.

    The FT02 launched at the same price but offers far more than this chassis. Next.

    Call me when Silverstone start doing 90 deg rotated cases again... Seriously, I think the only case I'd move to from my RV02 is an FT02
