Compact and stylish.. a bit cramped though

Strengths:

Efficiently designed. Optional sound-deadened top or high airflow top. USB Type C Decent included (1x120 and 1x140) fans Fits an MSI Suprim 3080 which as of right now is the largest nvidia card on the market. Could fit a longer card if you move/remove the 140mm front panel fan.

Weaknesses:

Very hard to work in with an air cooler or large power supply and cable, especially if you plan on using top-mount fans. If you're using a full size air cooler, look for other options unless you like punishing yourself.

Additional Comments:

I've got an X570 and Noctua NHU12A, and as of the time writing a Corsair AX1000 (any bigger and you'll be in trouble) Nice to have the Suprim fit in there beside the 140mm front fan with about half a cm to spare. I put in the same fans as the Noctua NH-U12A came with for the case. It all fits, but it's very tough. You have to be smart about how to install all the cables from the PSU and be careful not to end up bending them beyond their limits. In my build it was absolutely necessary to remove the 3.5" drive bays which is unfortunate as I planned on installing a 8TB media storage drive in it. There's no possible way the PSU length and thick cables will allow that. Also be absolutely sure to install your CPU power and fan cables before any top mount fans as there is next to ZERO room to bend or work anything once the fan is there, learned the hard way. Overall at the end of the day it looks great, and takes up less space than my full size Corsair C70 did, and the more modern USB connections is nice. I do wish I'd gone with the larger case though for the drive bay availability.
