My System Specs

Default

I had mine for 2 weeks then sold it. cooling was great, just felt cramped, and not enough space behind the Motherboard tray, felt cheap too with the HDD Sleds(these didn't even lock) and other plastic parts.

Any idea if it will come with the new air penetrator fans ?
Yes and it might come with USB 3.0 front ports too. Which is great because that's over $100 of HW that most FT02 owners don't have as that was added in much later.

These and a few other design restrictions are why I swapped my FT02 for a Cosmos 2. I had no issues with the plastic though as I found the FT02 build quality to be excellent it's just not a roomy case and bad for people who use inelegant cable management (like me!).

Cool, thanks for the quick answers.

Some are saying it is cramped.

I have a Rampage 2 Extreme / GTX570 and 2 SSD / 1 HDD.

It should fit fine, yes ?

Yes it will fit EATX boards and GPUs of any length.

There is only 1 SSD mount the other will need a solution IE tape it ontop of the HDD or another HDD sled.
