Build Advice looking for some new ideas

Hi all i've been into building PCs for a long time and have built, repaird, cleaned/serviced 100's of PC/laptops in the past several years.

I was looking for building advice, I would like to do a new build. Something unoriginal, a new idea that no one's really done before. I'm wanting to build a gaming PC/ slight coding it won't be used for much coding or any heavy coding task at all. It will have 0 mining done on it, and won't be used for any thing other then gaming, "SLIGHT" coding, heavy streaming services "like Netflix, YouTube, HBO max, and things like this, plus game streaming I will be streaming warzone 2, apex, black ops series, modern warfare series, and things of this nature. Other then these things the PC won't really be used. I have a $600 budget for the build only thing I don't need in the build list is a gpu. I have a rtx 3070 that was bought for a system that fried two days after the card arrived thankfully the whole system fried before I had a chance to add the 3070 to it.... The psu blew up when my brother shorted the breaker it was plugged into.

You don't see many mATX builds w/mATX cases these days. Pair it up with a I5 12400 / 12400F + B660M and some DDR4 3200 RAM.

These are STILL just moar of the same ole same same, lame lame, boring AF rectangular boxen of yesteryear, only slightly smaller than their larger ATX cousins and not really a departure from anything IMHO....

And YES, there are a ton of cool looking, well designed, out of the ordinary cases out there that do NOT fit the above description, you just have to spend some time googling them or looking on pcpartspicker.com :D

I'd look for a case with better airflow ... one with a front mesh panel.
