Pros: Looks great, bios is decent, and rgb syncs easily. Included manual helped a lot with all the different headers so building was a breeze and overclocking was super simple.
Cons: Now to the bad. My on board headers seem to be faulty. HD audio, usb, power led, the whole bunch. I’ll randomly get usb disconnects, audio drops, and my case led flickers (happened on two cases). Ran a usb program and noticed it’s all of my mobo headers as I confirmed no I/O usb had disconnect issues. Also getting stuck on DRAM light on boot causing me to have to disconnect power and reboot daily. Asus support is hard as all hell to contact so have been unsuccessful in trying to get an RMA set up
Overall Review: Unimpressed. More issues than I would have liked and tried everything in my power to troubleshoot and resolve, differen cases, several rebuilds, and the mobo is always the culprit.
Pros: Light, clean, packed well, and RGB is nice.
Cons: Some of the build quality is a little cheaper, but not terrible. Not a lot of room at all for cable management, which realllly sucks. RGB strip works well but doesn’t have many lights so you can tell during the cycle it’s not as smooth as it could be. Also no zip ties or good tie down points for management.
Overall Review: Overall if you’re looking for a cheap case as a transplant it works. Or if this is for a kid where cable management isn’t an issue (my situation exactly, used as a transplant for my old build to donate) it’ll work. But if you’re looking for something more legit, longer lifespan, higher quality with good management, might want to look elsewhere.
