+ Front USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C
+ can accommodate three fans at the bottom
+ 3mm tempered glass side panel
+ constructed with 1.2mm SECC
+ specialized GPU holder
+ RGB LED
+ etc.

I wonder how good it'd be to put an ultra-silent 120mm fan blowing directly into a semi-fanless or fanless power supply. I think it would be excellent.

The two semi-fanless components (graphics card and PSU) in a modern PC would be cooled by selected fans aiming the silence. It's amazing.

Sure, perfect if you in year 2017 still want to keep your super efficient components in a big closet :?

With the radiator mounts and fan count this is unlikely to be aimed at being that silent. For silence you want air cooling of the CPU and 160mm is OK clearance but isn't enough for some of the really massive heatsinks you can get. Another 5mm would help here.

I don't particularly like the aesthetics of it. I know it's a personal thing but I don't think the LED name on the front.

What was the case that rotated the motherboard so the back I/O is at the top? That air flow model seems most likely to be quiet.

There are quite a few, the FT04 being the notable oneas far as SPCR goes.

My Issue with the mainline FT/RV series is there hasn't been new 180mm based model in years. Nobody else seems to have even a dual 180mm standard case.

Its hard to stomach old school windows and cable management.

Okay, the Silverstone doesn't have intakes on the bottom, though.

Sorry the FT02 and FT05 do though. I thought you meant upsidedown where the motherboard is 180 degrees not 90.

Thanks again - the FT05 layout looks very interesting; but it seems to be very plastic.

The FT05 is actually more metal, like a Fractal Define http://www.silentpcreview.com/article1445-page1.html

The RV05 is the more budget, gamery, plasticy version.

Yeah, I stopped reading after "glass panel".

I don't like these stuffs too. Just refering to the thickness and cooling.

Well, I reconsidered and now I'm find that too water cooling oriented. If it were not for that, it'd be very good.
