    @smalltown primary thing to look at is airflow.
    Where are the fan/radiator mounts placed?
    Is anything blocking some airflow(like the disk rack)?
    How big can my fans/radiator be?(120,140, or 200')
    How many fans spots on front, bottom, top?

    The more, and larger the fans, the slower you can set the curve, the quieter the PC.

    This was the main thing for when I chose my case, and @essenbe & GamersNexus taught me alot.

    A good idea is go to GamerNexus Youtube channel and website to learn help inform about cases, and if you find one you like but can't afford, you you will at the very least, know what to look for in other price ranges:

    Dam, for a second I thought @OldMike65 had posted a pic of his rig and I got excited! I should have known better as it's top secret. Either he is shy or it looks like a pile of crap . Sorry Mike lol.

    I don't know why these guys (not only Corsair) come out claiming High Air Flow case while at the same time hindering the flow of air with a "pretty" glass front panel. I agree with Steve, these are not the best designs for air flow (high air flow).

    Anyway looking at Steve's numbers its not surprising the 680X falls behind Cooler Master's H500M in cooling, while also coming in at a higher price. It might be a nice case for custom cooling, but for HAF, not. And, I'm not bashing "Corsair", I'm merely pointing out the obvious.

    BTW, the besides the mesh panel, the H500M also comes with a glass panel, so here you have options.

    Darn it, this Z390 motherboard(I still use my Z370 Maximus X Hero which is great, see my max OC in my signature) keeps going in circles around my head for months: Z390 AORUS XTREME (rev. 1.0) | Motherboard - GIGABYTE Global

    16 REAL VRMs
    (Really look at the product page and click everything to see what it really has)

    I bet with that I could get 5.7 GHz with my AIO.

    It would cost me 600€, but I have the cash.: Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Xtreme, Intel Z390 M… | CASEKING.de

    information   Information
    How good is it?
    This video shows how cool the VRMs stay

    no air flow, custom loop, waster cooling by bitspower, the video is showing you, avx acting (I set avx offset to show it does run avx after p95 load), and how cool is, thanks to alva, I borrowed one IR camera to show the rig temperature. core i9 9900K is mind blowing fast in 8 core performance and allow you to push very high frequency for all core. if you want to max out CPU power, this board is the overkill design, wanna see more current on a i9-9900K?




    ...I have 3 weeks vacation in May, and could do it, but I don't need it.

    This is one of those things, were the devil is on the right shoulder whispering "get it", and the angel on the left, saying "you don't need it"
    Yep I have voices in my head, and tech dreams at night
