Right now the top aesthetic / "newness" contender at <$79 is the Phanteks P400A
but the Meshify C is currently selling for ~$67 which is well worth the price. The minor price increase over the Focus G would have been worth it unless you needed 5.25" bays.
In regards to the case, i agree. I kinda jumped the gun with that one, i wanted the meshify, but due to ordering from Amazon and wanted to get all my parts in asap, i got my second choice,impatience on my part.
The grommetless through holes aren't that bad actually, the metal is rolled in that area, and the risk of cutting wires are slim.
As to the motherboard, your 100% right. The gaming pro motherboard is actually pretty bad with VRM temps.
Havent heard many things about the carbon, both good or bad. But it's stable and my temps are showing normal on hwmonitor.
The ram prices kinda shocked me, and i went with the cheapest 3200 speed ram i could, since the ideal speed ram kits are $180+.
Do you have any recommendations once i decide to move up in ram quality?
