See the description: "The Enthoo Pro M, to me, has all the things I want in a case: psu basement (while maintaining view of the power supply itself), excellent cable management, open design, plenty of expandability, and an enormous window."

So yes.

Thanks! Yeah I've definitely enjoyed this case more than any other I've built in.

Thanks for the comment! The link is the correct one, only I took it apart and plasti-dipped the frame matte black and the silver ring I plasti-dipped gold.

Cheers!

You did insanely well on price/performance!!

And I've used a LOT of CX units and the only issue I've ever had was a fan that got loud and I replaced it. My main gripe with 'em is they look horrid. Sure there are better units, but don't have an aneurysm over it.

Totally, really thought about it too. The sniper heat spreaders are just so funky it would be hard to add just an accent (like the Corsair Vengeance kit has), and I didn't know if I really wanted to plasti-dip the whole spreader. I might keep my eye out for a deal on the Vengeance kits and swap out someday, cause you're right, it would be nice to have a little something going on there. Cheers!

The full window here is hard to beat, but that Eclipse series is a nice budget option for sure! Thanks for the comment!

I know!! I was waiting for the 2x8GB 1.5v kits to be available in gold, but they were never available. The full 32GB matched kit was $50 more than the Snipers, and I just couldn't justify it. Maybe some day ;)

Oh, I hear you! I was about to pull the trigger on the standard Pro M, and literally one morning woke up and saw an article about the Acrylic edition, and knew I'd have to spend a couple bucks more. Wish they'd made the side panels interchangeable! Thanks for the kind words!

Nice clean build at a great price! I'm a fan of the i3 in general, and sounds like it's perfect for your use case. A build to be proud of, nice work! +1

True, the added speed might have been nice (not sure I would have seen loads of improvement though), but the 4770 was a steal, and I doubt you'd see a 4790k for $200, used or otherwise. Thanks for the comment!

Thanks! I appreciate that! There's a user on ebay "ilavmodding" who makes these. I had good success with the 24-pin and 6-pin, but had several of the 6+8-pin and 8-pin combs break on me. Thankfully I bought more than I needed, as combs are notoriously brittle. There's always E22 combs as well. Cheers!

Thanks! I've used an i7-3770 quite a bit and I'm sure it's basically identical. It's a great processor. Not the fastest out there, but an excellent processor nonetheless. I wouldn't recommend it for gaming, unless you just want to spend the cash. It's an excellent productivity processor (in my case, the Adobe ecosystem). Cheers!
