Thermaltake Commander C34

New member here, been reading the forums here from the shadows for a while and finally decided to create an account and join in.


Any-who; I've been itching to build a new computer (this will be build #3 within a year and only 1 was for a friend) since getting my Praxas Wet Bench up and running. The first build was in a Thermaltake Core X5 those parts went to the Praxis, the X5 was just too bright trying to sleep in the same room with it. Been looking at cases for a few weeks, I was going to use the Asrock B365 Phantom Gaming MB I have, with my i5 9600 Coffee Lake, but I decided to buy a Maximus XI Hero with a Z390 chipset. Don't know what GPU I'm going to go with yet (Either my MSI 1080ti Gaming or a 20 series card), I'll be making that decision over the next couple of weeks.


So I pulled the trigger tonight and bought the Thermaltake Commander C34, the reviews on Amazon are mostly positive, the cons I can deal with as I'm pretty handy at assembly... I came here after class tonight ( non-traditional student 48yo BBA in CIS) looking to see if I could find any threads about this case but after 5 pages I gave up. SOOO has anyone here have any input on this case? Is it challenging to build in? Is airflow good/bad?


I'm giving serious consideration to cooling this with an EK-Momentum block to cool the CPU and VRMs, and will probably add a water block to my GPU if I go to a 20 series card (my 1080ti already has a water block).



I know with this being an ATX mid-tower case things are going to be tighter than I'm used to coming from an X5 and the Praxis bench, just wondering if anyone else here has built a WC system in one of these?

So I guess no one here has any experience with this case...
