      I built a computer last year for the first time in about 10 years and went crazy for the RGB stuff just for fun.

      I actually have the RGB version and it's nice though I do miss having a CD-Rom drive.

      Built my first PC with the non-glass side panel version. It's such a good case despite the $200 price tag. I like patting the top of the case because of the matte material.

      I got the white fullsize with a glass side - beautiful case, easy to work with, practically a silent wind tunnel, fully recommend
      The gpu bracket it comes with is a little shitty though.

    I have this case. I enjoy it. I believe I had the R4 before or whatever it was called. Black and blocky which isn't bad but I like how this case has slightly more flair without overdoing it.

    For me it's the Enthoo Pro. You wouldn't believe how hard it is to find a case with external drive bays. I prefer the glass side panel though.

      Easier to just a use a fan controller. In the winter when ambient temps are nice, all my case fans shut off except the rear exhaust which spins down to 500 rpm. They only gradually spin back up when my GPU passes 50c.

            you're really are a slug brain retard. A case can have a sub module boards with it that can accept other forms of power. Multiple ones go in with SATA to accept fan control. Think a little retard

    I actually liked the glass panel on mine. I think the front facing screw design is good for reaching in the case without moving it around.

    Buy Silverstone. They prioritize function over form while still making neat designs, so most of their cases have ventilated side panels. Their newer ones with glass / RGB usually have a solid / plain version as well.

        It's crazy overbuilt, it's only a tiny bit smaller than a 3090, despite using significantly less power.

          should I have just bought a 3090?
          cuz the only reason I bought the 4070Ti is because it's close to the 3090 performance but at more than 50% less of the cost in my country.

      the 3070ti is a 300w card and the 13600k consumes 160w at most. You could do fine even with a 750w psu

        Yeah, that's what the online calculators say as well. It's just some random youtube guy, pc builder, said that I'd need a 1000W for that. Guess I'll just stick with the initial plan. Thanks anon
