    good mid tower case options that still rock optical drive slot in 2019?

    I just bought a Corsair 750D air so I could have some optical drive bays. got a zillion cd's dvds to rip yet. plus tons of software going back to the 90s that need an optical drive. also used one of the bays for a memory card reader usb3.2 thingy.

    OEM Wraith Cooler - OEM Thermal Tape/paste seeped onto CPU pins

    yeah that happened to me with the cooler on my wifes 3800X. pulled the wraith to install an H115I and had some seepage on the socket. an acid brush and a little deoxit cleaned it right up. no issues at all.

    What was your least favorite graphics card?

    my first 486 I built had a Trident 8900 isa card with 512K on it. true POS but all I could afford at the time. the Trident 9400 VLB i stuck on my next build was better but still crappy. was not happy until I got my first ATI All in wonder card.

    Asus 7950 DC II (Literally) Caught Fire

    I see no reason to ever order another ASUS product. I have built thousands of pc's since 1993 and had my share of RMA issues but if everything the OP is stating checks out then I am done with them regardless of the outcome of this situation.
