Almost bought this one when I built my machine but I intended to run all fans on low and have the fan never activate in the PSU. When I researched, this case actually runs pretty hot. So keep that in mind if you are planning to build something quiet and stealthy. This may not be the case for you.
Where did you read this case runs hot? I have this exact same case and it doesn't run hot.. the airflow is great. Maybe it might run warm with the stock configuration of fans but I added Noctuas in the front and rear and it's dead silent. I'm running a Ryzen 2700x and 2070 super.

It was in a case shootout on gamernexus I believe. It came out pretty low on the list. It has something related to airflow through the case wrong with it. Granted this is for people intending to overclock which can drive temps way up. The case is fine at normal clocks. Have you tested to see if your pc is staying in turbo or not? A well ventilated case can keep an intel in turbo all the time.

No clue. I seriously doubt the Corsair I went with instead of this will handle them. I already was barely able to put the glass on with noctua cooler in there.

The result you're referencing is likely from their GPU thermals test, where they admit they had two 140mm fans as close to the top of the front panel as possible. In their review video they suggest positioning one 140mm fan at the bottom of the front panel to better provide cool air to the GPU. Overall, they give this case a positive review. People just need to make sure to put fans (2x 140mm or 3x 120mm) on the front panel and make sure one is supplying the GPU with air. Anyone who wants to buy the case should know there is only one 120mm fan preinstalled at the front panel.

This case is regularly listed at 84.99. Also, if you are a subscriber they just emailed it out being 79.99 a couple days ago (that expired though).

Also, note I wasnt referring to everyone's needs. I was referring to someone looking to minimize fans in their case and still game at the same level as a machine that is much louder. Everyone has specific needs and its great that this one serves yours well.

Anyone looking for something different, Phanteks has their non-RGB P400a for $69.99 but, shipping isn't free. Ground shipping is showing $25 for me.

This style of case looks cool but you're limited to the top panel IO, which only has two USBs. Normal cases would let you add more ports (e.g sd card reader if you have a camera) to the front
