with the case whats teh build quality like (sorry havent heard of this brand) and is it easy to build in (ie: placement etc etc)
Watch the LTT review I posted. Cables need to be flat mounted on the rear side of the case and theres like... ~10mm clearance or something. It has a crazy cover for the holes you put your 24 pin through, SATA through, usb 3.0 through etc., that also acts as a gpu support. Cables have to be flat here as well, where they go through the cover to the board. My gpus are quite large and deeper than most so I an going to dremel off plastic on said cover because currently theres a clearance issue with the back of my top 1080 ti FTW3. The fans it comes with connect to a fairly large fan controller, using proprietary cables, that then can connect to RGB/PWM on your board.

It includes 4 rgb fans and 2 led strips, has a wireless remote that can do colored patterns and brightness. It attaches to the back of the case magnetically. It is also possible to control brightness, fan speed, and speed of the RGB leds. It works with Asus Aura Sync, MSI mystic fusion (?) and whatever Gigabyte calls their RGB. You can press the power button on the remote to switch between the case rgb controller or your boards, or off. Just make sure your board has the newer Digital RGB, with 5v (NOT R,G,B and Ground) as this is what the case controller connects to. and TIn my case, since I have 7 AI-AUREOLA fans it has 9 small wires coming out of it that are fairly long to manage. On top of wires for 3 hdds, a ssd and 2 GPUs. In a midtower...

I'd rate the build difficulty a 8/10. If you just used SSDs (it can mount 3 in the back), one card, and a full loop or something it might be easier. (It can fit 2x 360mm rads and quite thick too, but the front one must be exhausting air and you remount fans inside the front panel, with the rad on the inside.)
