This is yet another update to a build I did last spring. This time, I upgraded the case, the PSU and added a second GPU. I also added a fan controller. I am thinking this is the last update for a while but you never know. I seem to have caught the PcPartPicker bug, if you know what I mean.
The PC is used for programming, gaming and some video editing.
I have been eyeing the FT02 for a while. Recently, I saw one on Amazon for what seemed like a decent price and I decided to go for it.
The FT02 is a fun case to work with and it seems to run quite a bit cooler than my Fractal Design R4.
One thing that surprised me is how little space there is for cable management behind the motherboard tray. For a case this large, I expected a little more room.
You can see from the photos, I used bolt-on electrical clamps to hold the wiring as close as possible to the motherboard tray (I got the idea from some other FT02 builds I found). And while that was a lot of work, in the end I like the look.
I also read that there might not be enough clearance for my Phanteks cooler. But it fit fine. I did move the fans down a couple notches on the cooler just in case but there seems to be plenty of clearance.
As always, thanks for looking. Hope you enjoy my build. It was a blast putting it together.
