Is it a prebuilt from iBuyPower? Just wondering because of the AIO you listed.

If you ask for a Mid Tower case recommend, I will 90% of the time recommend the Fractal Design Meshify C or S2.

a hefty 3 grand. I wanted a pc that would last for a while and not have to worry about improving graphics. The only adjustments I may make would be to add more storage but its enough for now. I really just wanted to know if it would preform fine and if the cooling is enough :)

@nicomaga98 Did you see the secret shopper series by Linus Tech Tips. He shows prebuilds from lots of companies including ibuypower and the conclusion was build your own pc if you can. This preforms better and cost $600 less. 

Edit: Saving $500 the case is 100 dollar it just isn't available

I would have followed that, I watch his videos and keep track of what he says but i don't know how to build my own pc manually and have efficient cable management. Yes, I could watch more instructional videos, but I would rather choose the parts and have the company build it. Dont really want to risk anything. I could return my pc with no additional fees if I wanted to when it arrives. Im just worried about the cooling since I just chose default case fans
