All good points. I will see what else PCS have in their catalogue that would replace it but keep the size, airflow etc present but add the USB C which is potentially of benefit.Not inherently, other than older cases won't have newer features like USB Type C at the front, and the aesthetic trimmings that are very popular at the moment like tempered glass, RGB fans, and PSU shrouds.
Case cooling / cooling vs noise should presumably improve over time as well, as newer and more efficient fan designs come out.
The point might be more than PCS are less likely to review their stock to include cases that are 4 years old, and will probably go EOL / stop being made before very long. If it's a choice between bringing in a new case that will be available for several years, and one of these.
Though I agree, the Airflow version might well be my preference of the two.
If you want all out performance and beautiful looks, for me the Corsair Obsidian 1000D is sweeet.Thanks for all the advice. I will look at the cases in PCS first and then in the market. If you have any candidates in mind please let me know.
Thank you so much @OussebonSounds like a fair plan to me
NB, not all motherboards have USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type C connectors for the front (some are only 3.1 Gen 1 / aka USB 3.0, type C).
This one currently in your prospective spec does have 3.1 Gen 2 Type C for the front: https://www.gigabyte.com/uk/Motherboard/X470-AORUS-ULTRA-GAMING-rev-10#sp
With regards to the spec more generally, are you now waiting for Zen 2 to be announced, most likely at Computex at the end of the month?
