Silverstone FT03 Mini - Graphics card?

Seems like a great case but I saw a youtube review saying you need a "BLOWER" GPU? What does that even mean? Aren't 90% of graphics cards with fan cooling?

A blower GPU takes air in from the case, runs it through some heat sinks and throws it out the back of the case.

The cooling is quite bad compared to just throwing a bunch of fans on it, and is quite noisy. They're okay for small cases (ITX/mATX) but for mid-full ATX cases it's best to go for a fan cooler.

thanks, i've been reading these blowers are loud too... that really sucks then, such a great case but why would someone buy it if they can't put a good graphics card in...

back to my case search I go...

Hmm? You can put any GPU in any case. An MSI Twin Frozr will fit in fine probably if it's not too long, just it'll make ambient temperatures a bit higher than if it was a Blower cooling system.
