Re: Its MIDRANGE but is it BALANCED?

Looks good and very balanced. The sleeved extension cables are always a nice touch. Looking for ones myself.

And nJoy that 5700XT because i was going after a RoG Strix 5700XT last year and now they are all out of stock and the price bump is just ridiculous. Here it went from 390€ to about +600€

Its not that i cant squeeze a playable framerate out of my RX480 in most games but games from now on will not go as graciously as i would like. And to worsen things even more, i'm getting afraid of keeping that insane OC on the RX480, if it breaks i'm done for.... 😞

I would personally change the fans to Corsair if you like the RGB, not just because of the RGB but i had a bad experience with cooler master, they go tec tec tec tec tec too soon. I've added Noctua to mine recently though.. Even the Wraith Prism (which is CM) with about a year is going tec tec tec tec tec. But if your fans are just fine, even better because they do look good. I had both Corsair and Cooler Master and the Corsair ones lasted for about 6 years with no complaints since i had the Obsidian 450D

I would loose the HDD cage too, to improve airflow, unless its a hiding spot for cabling.

And don't forget a good monitor! Your eyes deserve it 🙂

Re: Its MIDRANGE but is it BALANCED?

Agreed to most part,but CM in my country has impeccable customer support and sends me replacements from tempered glasses to  Fans to CPU cooler radiators,So i'ld stick with em for now!
I just wanted a balanced RIG with every component is complementing each other seamlessly!!
And yes I am planning for a better Monitor with 144z IPS display 2K
Currently mine is an ASUS 90 HZ FREESYNC 24inch 1080p IPS which gets the job done at RPG games.
