Do you suggest another more modern case? I prefer something clean with a side window. Also looking for at least 2 (preferably 3) 5.25" bays.

Here's the current build (I've marked the items that have already been purchased): https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Diaa/saved/mjrZwP

Budget: sub $275? (I'm flexible on this)

Thank you!

Also for the PSU, I would go with something more tried and tested like this...

Thank you!

Thoughts on this case?

Also, regarding the PSU, I just ordered it yesterday (unfortunately right before seeing your message). Is it worth returning or do you think the one from the build will do?

Oh yeah absolutely. Great case if you can afford it. The PSU shroud can be a tad painful to handle, otherwise its top notch.

I am not sure to be honest. Its a fairly recent release than the other Supernova models and there are not many independent reviews out there. It is good enough according to this one with DC-DC converters and jap caps and all...

But as I said, it lacks behind in the charts due to lack of info...

Your call mate.
