Yeah I thought building in a full length midtower like the Meshify would make it quicker because less bs on cable management with the larger space and the fan hub, nope. I do however have 3 sata drives and 1 m.2 drive with enough lanes to fill out all 3 m.2 slots.So many variables. A generic one maybe 15 minutes. But a fully customized one with a lot of cable management could take hours. Mine took around 4 hours and I had to custom fit the water cooler because the damn build has the slot for it to be installed, BUT NO VENTILATION for the radiator 0_0. Took my time doing all as well (enjoying it).
Still the end result was cleaner than it ever did while my system was back in the O11 Air Mini, main reason why I passed the case down to my sister.
Also with the O11 Air, if you remove the back panel with the expansion slots and shit to make it easier to install the motherboard, don't screw the board in yet - just place it in with the standoff holes being mostly aligned. If you screw it in, you can't place the back panel back on.
That was a lesson I only needed to learn once.
