Pros: I built a new computer about 6 months ago and bought a Lian 011 dynamic. Although that case looked stunning I was never happy with the temps. I tried different fans and different combinations of mounting the radiator and intake exhaust fans. The computer never overheated so to say but cpu temps running a 10700k @ 5.1 while gaming were always in mid to upper 70c range. The gpu temps were mid to high 70c and sometimes went up to mid 80c range
For me that was just to high. I saw this non Rgb version and thought what the heck if it does not work out I will build another machine for the wife and give it to her.
Same build and configuration and now my temps after hours of gaming are:
Highest court I have seen is 61c
Highest gpu I have seen is 70c
This case just amazing airflow and now I can run the fans at a much lower speed to reduce the noise.
The case even comes with a vertical gpu mount. I would of never thought of doing a vertical gpu mount in the 011 dynamic as the temps were already at the high level. I ordered in a riser cable just to try it out. I did some reading and bought the better 7 ribbon version PH-CBRS_PR22. My temps went up 1 degree. Now I can see the 2080ti Aorus Extremes fans and it looks amazing.
This case was easy to set up and get running fast. Easy cable management. Very clean and professional look.

Front intake fans and one rear exhaust fan:
Noctua NF-P14s redux-1500 PWM 140mm
Changed out the fans on the MSI cooler to the Noctua NF-P12 redux-1700 PWM 120mm
The fans are not rbg and I was fine with that. These fans are quiet and pump a lot of air.
In Warzone as an example, settings midto high range running 1440 I am averaging about 180-185 FPS and is buttery smooth and fast.
Cons: None. Very happy and finally a product that looks good and performs excellent.
If I had to say one bad thing it is that the riser cable was not included. But that is the same with all cases out there. Plus if they would have included it, it probably would of been the cheaper 6 ribbon and not the better 7 ribbon one, so I am ok with that.
Overall Review: Just buy it. Read all the reviews. They are true and every place has given this case one of the best airflow cases out there.
