    Fractal Design Announces the Define Series 7, 7 XL Chassis

    they have layers, but its an all or nothing affair. I want some venting without the top being open. Look at the front of the case where the vents are on the sides and not the front - thats what i think belongs on the top.

    Fractal Design Announces the Define Series 7, 7 XL Chassis

    i still think they need a top for the case like the front, where you can have it solid but vented RN its annoying af, because dust, debris and *shudder* children can put anything down open top if you want to use it for cooling

    I went from a 4770k to a ryzen 1600 regular and noticed gains, you're getting a huge boost from the motherboard platform change alone go for it, you can always upgrade the CPU even further later when prices are lower
