Yes. It's RNG. Just like silicon lottery lol
Do note masterbox lite 5 (non-rgb) only have 1 fan included, you will need to add more yourself to make an airflow for that case. Or top up a bit to get the RGB version with 3x RGB fan at the front and a black fan behind.

Casing I think I firm on Frontliner/Tecware Alpha. And also.... quad but that one abit not mainstream. But looks like a subwoofer. Lol. Any opinion on it?

The Alpha is cheap, good airflow, comes with 2x usb3 in the front, comes with front, back and top fan. So value.

I think you should check out the casings physically to see whether is it too bulky or able to fit onto your desk/floor, the looks of it, port placement, etc...

Stock is low for that 2 casing. I am aiming for the alpha too for an old X79 system with an EATX mobo. Or see if I wanna risk getting a Masterbox Lite 5 RGB then mod a bit lol. Only worry the mobo cannot fit haix

EVGA B700 $109 or Superflower Leadex Silver 650W $129
Tecware Edge TG $75 or Cooler Master Masterbox Lite 5 RGB (4 fans included) $109 damn worth

Spend a bit more for value product rather than focus solely on cheap.

Sent from PM me if you wanna build a DIY PC or wanna learn how to make one yourself using GAGT
the included fans are RGB?

edit: found the answer - they are RGB

getting an product brand base on the distro you stay in is bloody stupid man....

it's all about price to performance value product over that.

I have bad exp with all the local distro before so i don't need to name them out.
