    Need advice with a new case

    Title, i want a new case for my new build with a focus on rgb and support for both the ssd and video card.

    Currently this are the components i have/plan to get:

    https://www.amazon.com/AMD-Ryzen-560.../dp/B08166SLDF

    https://www.amazon.com/ASUS-ROG-Moth.../dp/B07SW8DQVL

    And a RTX 3080 once i can find one

    The main things i want for the case is good cable management, support for the video card ( it really makes me cringe to just have the screw supporting the vcard ) and enough space for some water cooling, i currently had my eyes on this one, but want to read more recommendations

    Just get the Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic and call it a day.

    Just note the top dust filter sits outside of the case, and tends to curl over time.

    Might consider the:

    I suppose you'll have to buy a GPU support bracket if your GPU doesn't come with one and you're concerned.
    I sat alone in the dark one night, tuning in by remote.
    I found a preacher who spoke of the light, but there was Brimstone in his throat.
    He'd show me the way, according to him, in return for my personal check.
    I flipped my channel back to CNN and lit another cigarette.

    It’s cheaper, I’d disagree that it’s better in any way.

    Not something I’ve seen. But the top filter is pointless anyway since that area should be exhausting.

    I second this. I'm no super expert, but this case is the best case I've had. They really thought the design through in all aspects. Great cooling, great build quality, great cable management, I mean I could go on but I think we get the point

    Hardly pointless, it's there to prevent dust just recirculating into your space.

    Also OP, this version of the case we're discussing has an addressable RGB strip out front, since you noted you're interested in RGB stuff. It'll play nice with your MOBO of choice as well.

    I agree with this. Just did a build using the lian li razer version.

    Phanteks P600s is pretty much the best case I've owned and close to my perfect case.

    It is also decently big in all respects and it comes with hard drive sleds if you require them, if you don't well no need to have it in the system.

    Maintenance is super easy as you can just open either side panels as they are on hinges to dust out the system, no fiddling with screws.

    That one looks better, dont like white for my cases, too "dirty" for me

    I have an older build in this case, which is the only white/light-colored case I have. It's available in Black as well.

    If anything it’s trapping dust inside the case when you’re exhausting as that’s the direction of the airflow.

    Any insignificant amount of dust that breaks free of the top exhaust filer will likely end up blowing out through the rear exhaust. The top filter exists as a means of preventing recirculation of dust into your space, which keeps that same dust away from your intakes. If you make it a habit of actually cleaning your dust filters, you won't have much of any 'trapped' dust to worry about.

    How is it recirculating when there’s no intake up there pushing it into the case? Just like the rear exhaust, it isn’t. The filters on intakes keeps dust from recirculating, but you’re just talking nonsense. Now, it may prevent dust falling into the top when the system is off, but that’s minimal at best.

    Edit: to be clear, a filter doesn’t filter shit in the opposite direction of the flow(what you’re claiming with the recirculating bs).

    Dust blowing through your exhaust fans is recirculated into the space around your pc, which is then pulled into your pc through your intakes. I don't know how much more simply I can put it. Reduction of dust recirculation = good, clogged dust filters = bad.

    Not perfectly, hence the inclusion of exhaust filters.

    Roflmao. And then gets trapped by your only exhaust(there’s no rear on the case) by a filter. Brilliant. See, the filters on the intakes stop recirculating dust. Not trapping it inside the space so it never exits. You don’t want to filter exhaust if you want dust to exit the case, as most people do.

    You literally argued for intake filters and keeping them clean. Exhaust filters have no appreciable affect on the amount of dust being recirculated. Period. Hence them not being a thing. The reason they have a top filter is for the rare cases where dumb people use the top as intake. Which is a thing that does happen.

    The intake filter prevents a majority of dust from entering your PC. The exhaust filter prevents a majority of whatever dust that is inside your PC from recirculating into the space outside your PC, thereby preventing it from re-entering your PC. The inner-facing portion of exhaust filters would never collect dust if they weren't functioning as intended. Smarter people than us have established the merits of both intake and exhaust filters.

    You're being intentionally obtuse at this point. I'm not going to engage with you any further.

    My bad, I’m operating on low sleep and misunderstood what you were claiming. Still a dubious claim. I’ve never seen any evidence of an exhaust filter having a tangible benefit. If anything it causes recirculation inside the pc(not desirable) and restricts airflow(also not desirable) while catching a negligible amount of actual dust. The entire reason I ditched mine on this case as it never required cleaning and doesn’t sit flat when a top rad is installed. And I have to clean my other filters every 2-3 weeks.
