I don't think the TUF aesthetic is going to go down too well (the GPU isn't great, and the TUF based parts carry a price premium)

Cheers, I'll update the build with a different graphics card, cheers for pointing out the video.

I've put in the Red Devil card, this one has rave reviews, slightly different aesthetic and more expensive, but better than including anything dodgy.

Included some cable extensions for maximum colour.

GPU has red lit accents, which might resemble the suit core (somewhat)

AMD stock cooler also has RGB, could also do something with that

Here's what I got. Monitor is 1440p 155hz, also threw in some cable extensions because they look oh-so-nice in a finished build.

Enjoy.

Looks good, but I don't think the Dynamic is the best case choice (its mainly designed for custom loops/AIOs)

The PC-011AIR might be a better solution

Mostly AIO builds, but the PC O11 Dynamic will work fine with air coolers, it was essentially designed by Der8auer for Lian Li and has amazing airflow, it's a truly versatile case.

I know that, but having the choice between a bottom intake, or having a 90 degree intake doesn't sound appealing to me.
