Feels good! What fans would you recommend? I know u have the umx4 but it's pretty similar. I'm thinking of getting 4 or 5 of these noctuas https://noctua.at/en/nf-s12b-redux-1200 and connect them to a pwm hub. The P12 fans looks cooler but the S12 are supposed to be better as case fans.

I use Gentle Typhoons for bottom intake and a single top intake.
I have a Vega 64 Liquid that I use as exhaust. No temperature issues for what its worth.

Do not get the S12's, they're horrible aside from situations where you have no restriction what so ever. They were a good case fan back in the day, because back then cases didn't have dust filters. But even if you were to remove all the grills and dust filers from your case, I still wouldn't recommend them. There' are just better ones out there now.

I'd recommend the Phanteks PH-F140MP or the Be Quiet! Silent Wings 3. The 140MP's are quite affordable and still really good, but the SW3's, while pretty expensive, are about the best you can get.

Thanks for the heads up! Would the Silent wings 2 work as well? DOnt seem to be much difference from the sw3. I don't need pwm since i use a pwm hub.

Got a mail and apparently the U5 is not in stock and wont get in stock until mid april earliest :/ What other Jonsbo case should i get? UMX4 doesn't seem too bad, UMX5 looks nice but it's so big :O I'm actually leaning to the VR2, airflow seems pretty sweet.

The SW2's are actually pretty different fans and not quite as good, but if you can get them cheaper than the 140MP's, sure they're a good choice.

I actually really like the VR2 as well, actually considered getting one not that long ago. Do keep in mind that unlike the other cases you've been looking at, its mATX not ATX.

I have both a MITX and an ATX motherboard so that's not a problem
I think i have come down to either the VR2, UMX4 or the UMX5. UMX5 seems to be superior to UMX4 when it comes to airflow and options for watercooling if i decide to do that in the future. It's big, but i used a Corsair 800D for years and that is way bigger. VR2 seems like it's optimal for me but the UMX-series looks so good :O

I paid more for my UMX4. I'll probably end up selling the UMX4 for super cheap though. My loss, but I'm a sucker for a sexy case.

I got my U5 in on Thursday.I'm about 90% done with getting my system moved out of the UMX4. Even with more fans its quieter. Probably due to the way the bottom intake is now. I need to clean up the wires.

A few things
1. It is a tad smaller. I was unable to use my Scythe Ashura it's 161mm Tall, and the case only supports 160mm tall coolers. I could have added a spacer on the side glass, but I wanted to use my Ninja. And figured I could run it passive with my Ryzen 1700.

2. Build quality is fantastic

3. It shares a lot from the UMX4, which doesn't bother me. The UMX4 is an awesome case.

The first picture should be my setup in the UMX4.
