    It looks very similar to the cases used on the Walmart Over Powered line of desktop computers.

    Price is not bad. But those cases have no mounting for radiators on top/bottom/back. Only option is front and it may or may not obstruct SSDs. Then that SSD space is waste of space anyway. Just air in there. Case could have been shorter. Air Filters seems to be non-existent too.
    Cable management will probably not be pretty, but it will be sufficient.

    On other hand, with all things it is missing, it will probably be lighter than most of cases with similar volume. I am sure I and many other people here could design smaller, better case with less material used. And we would still fit large GPU and Liquid cooling. This case simply has too much unused and therefore unnecessary space inside.
    = = = =
    One thing I have been missing a lot is alternative PSU mounting. As having it above/below MB is adding to case height for no good reason. One can put intake of PSU on front and blow hot air up or down from case. Power delivery handled via 90° extension cord having PSU port on back where it is expected. Intake can be even sideways for even thinner case. Such can have 90° mount for GPU. There are many alternative combinations.
    I think you are underestimating options that case of yours have. Once you build your system, you can re-do it multiple times to find optimal placement and direction of fans, radiators.
    Case in OP offers practically no options.

    Another case that is directed at argeebee and no airflow...

    Which is shown in tests to completely suffocate everything to ridiculous degree LOL. "Fans? Let's block them with a front cover and prevent airflow!"

    There are spots for the air to come in the front of this case, the sides of the front panel are ventilated. While not the greatest, will probably be about the same as other cases with a solid front panel design.

    I'm using a beige 2005 noname case with fully sealed front.
    With the sidepanel removed, works marvelously.

    IMO spending money on aesthetics which only you will ever see(and as it turns out, also heats up components), is money wasted.
