If you are gonna improve on it anyways might as well build one immediately. It's really not that hard + you'll save money/get a better system.

The only association I have with the term “Ironside” is a civil war era tall ship or a 1970’s TV show.  I don’t know if you’re talking about a specific named computer or an app or a methodology or what.  Could you be more specific?

Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

Ah. A prebuilt maker.  Names seem to coincide with case type.  I have no opinion, except perhaps I’m not super pumped about their cases.  They seem to be a bit short on ventilation.   Hard to tell from just a case pic and no internals description though.

I mean is it really that bad to order parts now and build the system tomorrow compared to the shipping time ironside has of about a week it seems (could be wrong but thats what it tells me in the cart). That and you have full control over the parts. They are intentionally vague about the parts and have a HUGE markup on them. Really the best would be to build it yourself because:

It's cheaper

You get better quality parts

You learn something

You can decide exactly what you want
