Thanks Skylinar  I still need to do more work on the cable management part. touble tape on commander pro is not sticking. I think because of the heat from the back plate of the motherboard tray.
 
Speaking of Motherboard, It came with thermal pads for NVMe SSDs. My SSD came with a heatsink and when I installed it with the thermal pad, I think it was not connected properly because the thermal pad is a little bit thick. So I was wondering if that is OK to install the NVMe without the thermal pads.

Nice! I also have the C700M but haven't been able to make friends with it yet. What struck me the most is that after unscrewing the PSU cover, the paint around the screws literally flakes off, pretty bizarre. Also on some other places the paint quality is like a $50 cakes, you could almost scrape it off with a fingernail. Have you experienced anything similar with yours?

Yes. There are 2 things I don't like about this case . First, The paint. So poorly done specially with a case with like 100 screws.
 
Second thing I don't about this case is that it is ideally for ATX motherboards, Although it supports E-ATX, the extra width of the E-ATX covers half of the cable management cutouts which makes it a little bit hard to route cables and properly do cable management.
 
but other than that, this case is bad ass. I really like it.
 
I had Corsair 1000D in mind, but that thing is massive and it is meant for WC. it's not worth it for air or AIO coolers. Cosmos 700M size is perfect , bu it just needed to properly support EATX like previous Cosmos 2 case, which I owned before.

Cable management is fantastic with Z390 Dark.

It sure is. This is the main reason I got it. I really like the inverted power connectors and moving the CPU power connectors next to the motherboard connectors. Also it has bad ass looks.

Hello Guys. I want to ask you about something. I have been recently experiencing a very annoying problem. during gaming every now an then I get this weird annoying chip in FPS. It's not an FPS drop, just a weird chip. Not sure if it is related to G-sync. But I started noticing it after I connected the usb cable for the pump, installed Evga powerlink, Gigabyte HB SLI bridge, WD SSD dashboard and software for NZXT kraken. I believe I had iCUE instaled before. I am quite sure I was not seeing this before. I really don't want to go through reinstalling windows again, but I have a feeling it is something I installed recently but not sure what. Even when I close all the apps I still get this weird chip.
 
I don't think it is hardware related. Maybe you guys can share similar experiences ? My last resort is to reinstall windows and not install anything except drivers and games and test again.
 
Update: I did some benchmarks, superposition 8k optimized, 99% utilization on both cards, it was butter smooth during the entire benchmark. Ran Metro Exodus 3 runs, and it was also butter smooth. Not sure if it is just my eyes but I am sure I started noticing this recently. Anyway, I will keep messing around with it. I might reinstall Windows and see if that makes a difference.
 
Update: I tried Forza Horizon 4 . WOW this game is so beautiful. Not a single stutter with non stop racing. So I guess It just me being OCD or something. I'll keep testing different games.
 
Update: OK ... I did alot of testing and messing around. The problem is definitely with SLI somehow. When SLI is disabled, No chipping , micro stuttering, When SLI enabled, I notice microstuttering. I saw this with Gigabyte bridge and asus bridge, both are HB. I put back the ribbon bridge, and no stuttering !!! **** is that ? I will try to look for a better bridge. but not sure how is this possible ?!
 
Update: OK .. scratch the ribbon thing. All Bridges have exactly the same behavior . standard or HB. Only when disabling SLI it goes away. I'll just live with it for now until I get the new cards.
