If you make a mistake and buy a bad case,what would you do?

Hello guys,new here. 


This is my third pc and before that i never had problem with temps but this time i'm a little bit worried. I've got all the parts at home except case which will arrive in monday. 

For those who might ask what my specs will be for thermals purpose - R5 3600,GTX 1660S OC,B450 PRO4,2x8 3200mhz,Seasonic 650w

Case is -  Armaggedon T5X PRO II Black. I tried researching and didnt find reliable results but from info i gathered,everyone seems like they are satisfied but i am still not sure.


If this happens to be a bad airflow case,what would you do? Returning and getting new one is out of question. (money)


Would try to rearrange fans,get new ones or maybe go old school with big ass fan blowing (dust) directly into it for maximum cooling efficiency? I've spent allmost all my saved money so any upgrades regarding case and little bit more expensive cooling is out of question for 2020.


Edit: i have no intention of overclocking neither gpu or cpu and im a casual 1080p gamer who wants to chill after hard day of work for 2-3 hours sessions at night.



Thank you.

mesh front with 2 fans, seems fine lol. if reviews are also satisfied why would you worry? a 3600+ 1660 super is pretty low wattage, could be an nzxt h510 and have plenty of airflow for that kinda setup. 


in regards to buying bad cases.... fortunately i have a few friends to build systems for, which helps me offload my mistakes. one being this meshify c, damn you tofuharoto! :P 

topics i need help on:




my "oops i bought intel right before zen 3 releases" build

CPU: Ryzen 5 3600 (placeholder)

GPU: Gigabyte 980ti Xtreme (also placeholder), deshroud w/ generic 1200rpm 120mm fans x2, stock bios 130% power, no voltage offset: +70 core +400 mem 

Memory: 2x16gb GSkill Trident Z RGB 3600C16, 14-15-30-288@1.45v

Motherboard: Asus ROG Strix X570-E Gaming

Cooler: Noctua NH-D15S w/ white chromax bling
OS Drive: Samsung PM981 1tb (OEM 970 Evo)

Storage Drive: XPG SX8200 Pro 2tb

Backup Storage: Seagate Barracuda Compute 4TB

PSU: Seasonic Prime Ultra Titanium 750W w/ black/white Cablemod extensions
Case: Fractal Design Meshify C Dark (to be replaced with a good case shortly)

basically everything was bought used off of reddit or here, only new component was the case. absolutely nutty deals for some of these parts, ill have to tally it all up once it's "done" :D

So in conclusion this should be a legit case for this build?


edit again: reason why i am worried is because i bought it with so tight leftover pc budget. It costs around 35e here in EU.
