What do I use it for?
General purpose computer, including gaming. I do not plan to overclock, which probably makes many of you wonder why I went overkill on motherboard, PSU, and number of case fans. The reason for this is because I want my system to run both cool and quiet to minimize noise and increase hardware longevity.
How was hardware assembly?
Putting everything together with organized cable management was easy in this case, which has lots of space for components and cables. The only area this case is lacking is max cooler height, which isn't a problem if you are water cooling your CPU.
How was setup of the software?
Once the computer was assembled, installing Windows 10 and other software happened with no issues. The one minor issue was that the CPU cooler fans speeds were surging, due to the temperature spikes on the CPU. I was able to address this with BIOS updates and setting the fan curve.
