I have a friend who is looking to build a PC soon, and he might be interested in my case so I might sell him my H440 and a spare monitor I no longer use for £115. That will pay for the Enthoo Pro M SE and LED strip. Another friend owes me about £70, so I was just going to have him buy me the Dark Rock Pro 3, as I'd like a change from my Kraken X61 and since I'm changing case anyway potentially, now would be a good time to do cooler swap. So basically all I'm paying for here is the cable extensions, and I might not bother with those since the EVGA G2 stock cables are pretty nice anyway.

Any thoughts/tips? Anyone used any of these products? I have built in an Enthoo Pro M before, so I know it's a nice case. Not sure if I should maybe get a Meshify C instead Looking forward to tempered glass though. I'm a little worried about RAM and cooler compatibility, but I think it should be fine. Also, thoughts on cable extensions? Worth it or should I just stick with the EVGA G2 all black cables?
