    Hi there everyone.
    I'm thinking of changing my case, at the moment I'm using NZXT 820 full tower case and I had it for a couple of years now but I wouldn't mind to to change it for something else, another large case (the bigger the better) with glass panel, preferably. I'm not sure yet which one I should go for so I wouldn't mind if you could put some pics up to give me some ideas that would help allot.
    Thanks.

    Thanks for your reply, I was just wanting to see some finished builds to give me some ideas.
    I wasn't going to do H2O and I'm running just single GPU, ATX Asus rampage vi apex mobo, Corsair H110 liquid cooling and Corsair 850w PSU, that's about it but I was just getting bored with the case that I have at the moment so I was thinking of changing it. Thanks again.

    Are there any decent high airflow cases with USB-C front panel apart from the Meshify S2 (and I assume R6) and H500M (and P600a?). Will be using it with a 280mm front rad and one gpu.

    mid tower, although I am considering going full driveless and only need to use a GPU and one other small card (sound card) so a smaller case wouldn't be out of the question as long as it could fit a 280 or 360 rad for the 9900k (and was regular atx board size).

    Decided I need to upgrade from the old Z440.

    Got a Lenovo P720 as the base:
    2x Gold 6238T (1.9GHz - 3.7GHz, 22 cores/44 threads each - combined these can do 16 core at 3.4GHz so I'm not worried about the low single core clock)
    384GB DDR4 Reg ECC
    nVidia Quadro RTX 4000
    4x960GB PM953 NVMe SSD in VROC RAID10
    Intel X540-T2 for 10Gb Ethernet

    Still waiting on the CPUs, one more heatsink and 10 more 32GB sticks.

    In the meanwhile I'll have to rough it with a single Xeon Gold 5118 and just 64GB of RAM.

    They cool the dimms, those plastic channels surround the 12 dimm slots.

    They're silent.

    My previous PC was an i-5 3570 with 16GB DDR3 and a 4GB GTX 680, so this is a pretty big step up for me.

    hows the temps on the 3600 with that cooler? I'm thinking of going max airflow and air cooling instead of AIO on my 3600x build, got the thermaltake c35 coming with the two big 200mm fans on front, still tossing up whether to get a soviet apartment style cooler like the dark rock pro 4 or a top flow like the dark rock tf as i plan to mount my GPU vertically in the commander case, A top flow with an rgb fan would look pretty sick.

    I'm idling in the 40s-50s, I hit ~60°C under serious load. The 3600 seems to idle pretty high for some reason. I've seen a lot of posts about this. But the load temps are relatively low, so I don't think it's a problem.

    Had em since Stacker days. Would I recommend them? No unless you’re not upgrading drives in a long while and even if a drive does fail you would need to disconnect cables and take the entire bay out to hot swap.

    I got rid of them ages ago.

    I use 4 of these now:
