    Yet another black and grey monolith. So little meaningful differentiation between cases at this level now, that it seems to me that, unless you really must have the latest feature, you may as well just hang on to what you have until it is old and tired after a good number of years.

    Wait what? You mean you upgrade your case like you upgrade components in your PC?

    I plan a build around form factor or specific case, and then build it, but the case and the PC are one forever. I upgrade the components, but the thought of upgrading a case seems weird to me. To me the case is just the box for the system, if I'm gonna change the box, I'll change the system inside as well...

    You could say that. I replaced my last case 2 years ago but, built an (almost) all new PC in it last year. The old case was a Zalman around 10 years old. My FD Define R5 has a long and happy life ahead of it.

    That's a specific case though. Zalman were horrific.

    How do they compare this case with the Define R6 which isn’t even listed in the thermal performance tables?

    I don't think they understand what's going on with sagging graphics cards. That little bracket it going to do nothing to stop the PCB bending.

    I'd rather get a PCIe riser cable & use the vertical mounts intended for the ITX system's GPU. GPU sag is one reason why I went with a horizontal mobo arrangement for my current system
