Great case! Except not enough open space behind the motherboard

anidees AI Crystal Cube <Mesh Front Panel> Dual Chamber Tempered Glass EATX /ATX PC Gaming Case with 5 RGB Fans / 2 LED Strips Mesh version - Black AI-CL-CUBE-MAR3
anidees AI Crystal Cube <Mesh Front Panel> Dual Chamber Tempered Glass EATX /ATX PC Gaming Case with 5 RGB Fans / 2 LED Strips Mesh version - Black AI-CL-CUBE-MAR3

Pros: - Lots of airflow from the front 4 RGB fans - Enough head-room for a thicc 280mm all-in-one CPU cooler's radiator/fans - Easy to install the LED strip lights - Convenient hard drive mounting bracket that swivels if you need to adjust anything in the hard drive bay - Power button on top and on the main glass display side - Plenty of room on the back side of the case for cable management

Cons: - The main issue I had with this case was there was not a big enough opening on the back of where you mount the motherboard in order for the mounting bracket for the CPU cooler to fit all four points of contact to fit it correctly over the CPU. I have an MSI MPG X570 ATX motherboard which fits other ATX cases just fine without issue. I thought about returning the case, but I liked it so much (and didn't want to wait longer for another case) that I used some metal cutting plyers to cut about two inches of the metal off in order to accommodate my CPU cooler backplate. - It was very strange to install my GPU after I got my motherboard in. The mounts on the case to secure the GPU in place had a weird protective metal mount on it that I had to remove and replace to install it. - The anidess company doesn't have an RGB software controller, so you have to use the RGB remote for the fans/LED strip lights.

Overall Review: Despite the small hurdles I went through to get everything going, I still really like this case. The RGB is bright and fun to play with, my components stay under 65 Celsius during full stress, and the case itself is compact enough to not take a lot of space on my desk. That also means it's very easy for my cat to jump on top of, but oh well.

Wicked Fast Processor for Gaming & Streaming

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X - Ryzen 7 5000 Series Vermeer (Zen 3) 8-Core 3.8 GHz Socket AM4 105W Desktop Processor - 100-100000063WOF

Overall Review: I've had this processor for over a year now and it is still working great! I had no issues installing it and haven't had any issues since then either. It is still super fast and doesn't have any issues with overclocking either. I try not to overclock too often because I wanted to get a nice, full lifetime out of this CPU; which seems quite possible. Amazing CPU!

As advertised!

Overall Review: There was plenty of thermal paste in the tube in case I messed it up and had to reapply (which is what happened). It works great and have no complaints!

Great Set for Streamers/Gamers

Pros: - Everything came bundled together - Easy to setup - Microphone sounds great - Boom arm/shock mount are very rigid and don't move without being purposefully shifted - Overall great ensemble

Cons: - It took a while to understand how to get the most out of my microphone, but that's just research I had to do on my own after I bought everything

Overall Review: This is a great microphone set for someone who wants to step up their gaming/streaming up a notch. I started taking more interest in streaming and purchased this set for exactly that. The product arrived from the seller relatively quickly and it was an easy setup. Definitely recommend this product bundle.
