I bought a finished one rather than building mine
The XL case with an NH-D15 an MSI RTX Gaming X Trio GPU and 5 hard drives is heavy as hell much more than your small and light system

Btw, I love the case you recommended. I don't think I've had any Fractal cases in the past. Very slick and easy to work with.

Except I had to watch a video to figure out how to take off the side panels...

After the Phanteks 719 turned out to be the worst case i have ever bought and a total trainwreck i had to find something to replace it and other than the Define 7 XL there was nothing on the market that could do everthing i wanted and have space for everything so while i have always dismissed Fractal cases as being super boring i came to the conclusion that i would rather have a boring but good case rather than a super crappy piece of feces that looks good

This was months before the Meshify 2 came out by the way so that was not an option at that time but i bought a Meshify 2 XL for my second system when it came out because of how good the Define 7 XL turned out to be and the fact that i am too lazy too switch drive trays every time i need to move a hard drive from one system to other its far easier to have two systems using the same trays so i can just move drives around

I watched every video on the Define 7 and 7 XL i could find before i bought it to prevent buying another trainwreck case like the 719 so i knew everything about it before i got my hands on it so stuff like taking off the side panels and switching from the open layout to the storage layout i knew how to do

This is my X570 system in the Define 7 XL

This is the older X99 system in the Meshify 2 XL

Both are my first Fractal cases

I was very impressed with the layout and build quality. plus it fit the 360 galahad easily. It's actually not that big a case but its layout works perfectly.

Finally got everything (except waiting for headphones).

Need to do some desktop wire management and load a bunch of programs

Monitor has zero dead, stuck or bright pixels... :)

Wire management complete for now. Time to start slogging through program reloads and then overclocking.

Can't be bothered to load Aura Creator software to change the RGB color on the motherboard, RAM and GPU. A fresh installed means I have no Armory software or Asus bloatware which is nice.

I have to say, I really like the Dell monitor.
