-My 3700X build, I didn't loop the case fan wires back because every time I need to open up the case they'll get tangled easily. Other than that, pretty satisfied with it.

Great build, I also have a 3700x and I am loving it! I am a little confused thought, how the wires would get tangled routing them behind the case? You could zip tie them (also label which fan is which, I did this and it makes you life much easier if you ever get the commander pro) together along a path. This case has awesome cable management if you were to utilize it this way.

It's just that I had to replace my 5700 XT recently with a different model 5700 XT and that involved unplugging a few wires, so I had to open up the back a few times while I was trying to figure out what went wrong with my old 5700 XT. You're right that I can definitely route and zip tie the fan wires through the back, but I figured if I'm unplugging other wires having 5 extra fan wires will cause more tangles. Also it's not like anybody else besides people who look at the picture or me will ever see my build anyways so I don't mind that much.

My CPU idle temps are pretty low, from 20-30 I think. I didn't monitor my GPU temps though I think my GPU temps are about 5-10 degrees higher.

How's the MSI Radeon RX 5700 XT 8 GB MECH OC working out for you? I can't decide between it and the 2070 Super.

It seems like it's on par with the 2070 Super. Only issue is that some cards/AMD drivers don't always work, like bugs or black screens in some games. Mine worked after I exchanged my 5700 XT Pulse for this Mech OC, so it depends on you if you want to risk having driver issues. I'd say if your store allows for returns or exchanges to just go for it and at worst you return it.

I'm a little more relieved now. Just one more question. How are the temps on idle and on heavy load?

I can't say for sure what the temps are since I don't bother monitoring them most of the time. I know my aib runs pretty cool though, especially with the 3 fans, so I think about 30 deg C on idle. I don't usually push my card to heavy loads so I don't know those temps.
