Thank you.

    What size case and orientation would suit you? I've got an x570 dark on the way and putting it in a thermaltake level 20xt to make it easier for power cables from psu to mobo

    Right now I dont' have specifics other than being able to fit the Dark. I am open to suggestions and just general research right now.

    Corsair 4000D should fit.  7000D would definitely fit.  1000D will fit that motherboard, another mini-ITX board, 30 case fans and (probably) a small country.

    I run in my Corsair 5000D and it's a tight fit... I'd recommend a 7000D or, and I can't believe I'm saying this, lian LI o11 dynamic evo

    I was looking at the 7000D, and already have the 5000D for another build. I figured it would be a tight fit. I saw the 7000D on Jayztwocents so it has been in mind since. I was curious if others are using different cases outside of Corsiar or Lian Li. 

    Oddly enough though I am a long time CM user (still have my Stacker 810) but I think it is time to retire it after 15 years. X-D

    I built my wife's in the Thermaltake X71 Glass.  It's a huge case but I'd get the 7000D instead if I had to buy again.  That said, for a loop build, the TT is good.

    Hello, curious what you did for the USB-C header, and the extra 2 USB Ports on the front IO? Did you leave these disconnected or buy an expansion card?

    They might not have the same setup so they might not see this thread.

    It could be good to send a private message to nicely ask what they did and link this thread . It could get them talking but I would first just do a hello and ask nicely if they mind you asking a question about their case and setup.

    I have an old 900D and like the look of the inside on that one. My 900 is about the same size inside. Dose the panel that covers the cable headers interfere with the vid card at all? I have a 3090ti in my dark.
