I have this one, it's build quality is terrible. Wired cabling choices there is not much clearance on the non-tempered side for cable management. Sharp edges that is likely to draw blood. That said if all you want is something to hold your components there it works. Air flow is terrible, like several other DIY cases it has a non meshed front so very poor airflow compared to other cases. It has side vents that is like sucking air through a straw. The top can be fitted with fans there is a magnetic grill cover so the fan might compete with your motherboard for space. Again, it you want a cost saving measure then yes it work, but that is all it does.

a case is nothing more than a shell to put your PC in. if you don't care about anything other than performance and it's going under a desk, buy the cheapest case that will accommodate your hardware. I've a couple friends that stick 2080tis in $50 cases because they just don't care about case aesthetics

Thanks just trying to build a gaming pc with all brand new parts. I don't really care about how it looks or rgb but I do care about the performance.

Check out r/hardwareswap on Reddit. I highly recommend buying used for some components to save a lot of money. Parts that can be bought used for little to no risk of wear or damage are CPU, ram, SSDs and of course cases and fans. Used mobo can save you some money depending on what chipset you're using and markdown on used GPU prices can get you a better card for the same price as new. I would recommend a new power supply for warranty reasons. Also watch r/buildapcsales.

Air flow is critical, I agree on the looks part (I prefer a minimalist black case) but having good airflow is vital to your components working well and lasting a long time. Also room for cable management really helps with the build process and keeping airflow at its best

definitely agree with decent ventilation but cable management is 100% aesthetics as well. don't get me wrong - I like things tidy, but plenty of tubers have tested airflow against cable management with little to no impact, especially in larger cases. maybe back in the ribbon cable days

I agree. But I searched and could find no retailer or specs that mentioned it has one, despite it _looking_ like it does.

I can't even find this model number on DIY's own website.

However, if it does have one, then its pretty rare - I had to use a Phantecs case for a build last year because it was one of the very few towers that had glass + space for a full size BR/DVD drive.
