Pros: -Performance is up the roof!
-Watercooling is quiet and efficient
-Many fans, good case
Cons: -Cable management could be better
-Case fan RGB controller pluged in case controller rather than motherboard
*You have to connect it on motherboard to enable sync
-While the idea of a front tempered glass makes it look good, it defeat the purpose of having 3 front fans, blocked by the glass
-Missing parts / manuals / wires
Overall Review: First, this is the only way to get a 3080 to this day (Jan. 2021). I was pleasantly surprised that it was an Asus TUF 3080 OC! Not the cheapest and not the slowest card out there!
Every parts is of excellent quality, from motherboard, to CPU, to AIO, to GPU and to memory. I can't say about the Wifi but it's a Realtek 8821CE Wireless Lan, so it supports AC.
Cable management had to be partly redone, but that's to be expected.
My main concern is about the case. While it is nicely designed the front glass is a poor choice for any high end gaming. That makes the airflow really bad!
But, the front panel can be easily removed, but leaving no dust filter along the way!
Deepcool has a "Mesh" model that could be a lot better for this!
But, I'm nitpicking! Overall I'm totally pumped and it blows my mind! Even without OC anything and with stock speed for CPU, RAM and GPU, it's blazing fast!
Pros: -Space and cable management is easy and efficient
-Air flow (within the case) is excellent
-Cheaper than many less efficient cases
-Good quality / construction
Cons: -Front panel is too restrictive, kinda defeat the purpose of having so many fans spot.
Overall Review: Overall, I'd say it's an excellent case! Price is really cheap and you get a lot of bang for your bucks! Up to 6 fans, open design with almost no restriction, easy cable management!
Only one big downsize, the front panel is rather restrictive, and defeat the purpose of having 3 fans slots on the front. It is fixable nonetheless, and since it's only made of plastic, I've made some "breathing holes". Doing so will lower the temperatures several degrees!
Pros: no fuss, just a mechanical switch, works flawlessly on my 1440p screen
Cons: well, I don't no, none really! It doesn't fetch me beers?
Pros: -Quite case
-Back path for wires
-2.5" HDD tray
Cons: -Cheap screws
Overall Review: Overall, it is well worth the price, 40ish$ for this case is more than decent. The case is light, quiet and many interesting designs, for wires as an example, so that it remains clean!
But, you get what you pay for! The screws are somewhat cheap, same goes for about every component. Feels somewhat fraisls!
But, if you have spares screws it'll be fine!
