Btw, should I set my side panel fan as intake or exhaust? (I have it as exhaust at the moment).

I usually use it as an intake as the fan is usually right next to the GPU.

Though I heard putting the side fam as an intake will "ruin" the smooth airflow

I have two fans in front, two in the rear, and the side one on intake... Plenty of air moving, with the side adding cooler air to the mix.

It doesn't ruin airflow, it just ruins the overall look of you case. Side fans are disgusting. Especially side fans in door windows.

?  On my father's Raidmax Dirk-Tooth case, the side fan does not look ugly.  Added a translucent fan, does not bring much attention behind the glass.

 

The real issue is the dust it collects, which does look unsightly every few months or so.

Actually, for me, they have red LEDs and look pretty good IMO, but whatever you say.

My cable management I would say is a 7 out of 10.

I always keep it exaust, to prevent dust.  But I imagine that doing so could raise temps for some people, my case has plenty of airflow.

Not my PC to do so, I have removable filters that I rise out.

So I'll just leave it as is.

Can always buy colored sleeves to match your interior.  I wouldn't leave my management less than 10/10 if the chassis had a window.

I mean it's not very noticeable, the wires are nice and neat, but there's some loose wires at the bottom of the case. But I'll redo the wiring tomorrow.

I agree with this. Side panel fans and vents are fugly.

Own the A900x, great headphone.  I think at this point I need something different, and the ma900 did not suit me particularly well.

I felt the Beyer T1 was a nice (and significantly more expensive) step up the A900X. Great all round presentation and imo, a highly versatile headphone, although the HD800 or a STAX would have it beat for classical and the LCD 2 and HE400 or HE500 would be slightly better for bassy music. The HE400 and HE500 are another couple of very good all rounders imo.

I am considering the HE-400, but I'm afraid its mostly hype.  If I only knew how it fared to the MA900, AD1000x, and DT880....

 

Hype is the #1 leading cause of overspending and disappointment lol
