So I am starting to gather the components for a complete new build coming up.
Have the EVGA RTX 2080 TI FTW3 on pre-order.
Also have an i9 9900k on pre-order.
Waiting for the Z390 Dark MB from EVGA.
 
Time to decide on a new case. Seriously considering either the DG 86 or DG 87 EVGA case.
It appears the only difference is the DG 87 also has buttons for fan speed rather than just software. Wonder if that would be worth it?
Also do these cases have removeable motherboard trays?
 
Thanks for any feedback, 

Don

    Be sure to check out the PSU "filter" on the DG 7* series. EVGA doesn't show off any images of it, due to how bad of a filter it is. It's just dust filter fabric, no edge at all around it to make it easier to reinstall without having to tip the case all the way over. The version with RGB logo, you can't see the front logo at all on the white version. Some of the reviews i have seen, they show higher temps with the front panel cover on it.
     
    My advice, check out what other mfg offer before you decide. You can better cases with more features for less money.

    I updated my other post. Some reason i thought you was asking about the DG-7* series case. 
     
    The issues i have seen people report about evga DG-8* case.
    • Bottom right side fan spot is blocked by 90%
    • White led lights can turn yellow on you
    • Shipping is expensive if ordered from evga.com

    Did you forget that you can Edit your Posts
    EVGA DG-87 Full Tower UPS Ground (Approx. 3 ~ 4 days) ($27.89) This is not so expensive.

    I like the EVGA DG-87....but I need 5.25" bays..and I don't think any eVGA case has them.

    Nope they do not, but you can use an external one if really needed.
    I started to move away for DVD Drives and so this year.
    I if need one I connect it up use it and disconnect when done.
    Lots of other type USB device out now to cover my rear.
    But still need them for my Fan & Pump Controllers and what not for custom water loops.

    Thanks for the feedback guys!
    No concern on shipping for me, I can get through Amazon with free two day shipping.
     
    Still weighing options though, not quite decided yet on the case.
