    Start a thread in the lovely Upgrade/Build section and give us the details laid out in the sticky. Loads of people around here would be happy to help!

    It really has been quite lovely. I am very happy with the air-pen fans, dust filtering and overall look. I do wish I had forked out a bit more for the FT-02 though.

    I have barely cleaned it in the past ~9 months (since I built it) and really, there was not more than a very fine layer of dust on the fans. There was practically nothing on the components inside, so I would say it is doing the job quite well.

    Cooling performance is pretty fantastic overall as well. I have not had the GPU or CPU hit above 59°C even with overclocks and while folding or stress testing.

    the RV02e and FT02 have the exact same chassis, only the exterior shell is different

    This I know, but the aluminum is quite lovely, as well as the different foot/base.

    aye both cases are really nice, but ye, the dust is just barely anything in these, so much positive pressure and everything is made to be blown upwards, though would love to see if any one has made a build using a caselab cases, such as http://www.caselabs-store.com/magnum-sth10/ :P

    I then ask: Why?

    Huge cases have no practical use. They make eATX motherboards look like mITX, you need to use extension cables for everything, there is ridiculous amount of radiator space to the point of it just being plain stupid. If you want to build a server, you get a server rack. If you want to build a computer you get a computer case of appropriate size. Going big for the sake of big is idiotic, in my opinion.

    Look at Marest's. That's a work of art. And it isn't in a full tower.

    his computer is art, but it is a full tower, at least from the case description :P

    i dont mean it has to be big to be a work of art, but its nice to see a whole variation

    I'm pretty sure it doesn't fit proper E-ATX etc motherboards though.

    not a clue actually, hopefully they might say if it has the mounting for it or not

    The FT02 supports eATX, not XL-ATX though.

    Tried using the VESA bracket with the Intel NUC on a monitor I picked up for £15. 1920x1080 monitor, but it only has VGA.

    -



    The HDMI - VGA adapter didn't work for some reason, struggled with it for ~15 minuttes =/

    Yeah, knew it didn't support one of the bigger ones. I obviously have a reason to keep using the HAF X... because I need to find an 1155 XL-ATX motherboard. rofl

    If the monitor is only 1080p, VGA can support it quite easily, just not really about 60 fps.

    Oooh that microphone looks really shiny and high-grade...but then I know jack-all about microphones :S
    You do a lot of commentary/voice recording?

    edit: Also nice interior, fairly tidy cable management. What sort of front intake does that C70 have? Since you've got two 120mms strapped to the left side of the HDD bay, I can't imagine having another set of 2x120mms on the right side for front intake. Would seem like a ton of airflow across HDD's for no reason only adding to noise :S
