Generally speaking, slim Mini-ITX cases lack room for full-fledged desktop graphics cards. Not so with SilverStone's new RVZ02 and FTZ01, which both get around that limitation without sacrificing slenderness.
As you can probably guess from the pictures above, both cases fit a dual-slot graphics card by placing it parallel to the motherboard, rather than perpendicular to it. Amazing what you can do with a little clever engineering and a PCIe riser. We didn't grab internal shots of the FTZ01, but here are a couple of the RVZ02:
The RVZ02 is coming in the second quarter and is the slimmer of the two, with a volume of just 10 liters. Despite that distinction, it can house graphics cards up to 11.5" long, including the GeForce GTX 980.
The FTZ01 is closer to release and is a little larger, at 14 liters. SilverStone expects to roll it out later this month with a $129 asking price. This one is made of solid aluminum (hence the metallic finish), and it features a dual-chamber design with slim fans. SilverStone says the FTZ01 is similar to the Falcon Northwest Tiki, which it produced.
