There are a lot of open-air cases on the market. I preferred the simplicity of this one.
It's primarily to be used as test/work benches, or for water cooling. I just liked the look of it.
After getting it settled in its final place, I ran into cable length limitations due to my standing desk...
I prefer the look of the reference card.
I wanted an open-air case this time. The 3090 generates way too much heat for a closed one.
It was way easier to put it all together and it's capable of being converted into a workbench.
