What do you guys think of this case?

Image


It's £30, but it may be a crimbo present. I'll be using it as a basis for a lotta moddage (maybe not tribal-overkill moddage, but a lot for me :lol: )


So what do you guys think of it. I'll leave it up to you whether or not I get it, no pressure 8)


EDIT: Curry's are selling it LOL It doesn't show the blue glow very well though

EDIT#2: click for more details

I like what-ever I mod to look natural, so not out of place, hence my tidy cables, lights where you can only see the glow etc. I'll ask for it for christmas then :P

Does that have a removeable acrylic front? It sure does look like my gmono CF-2029SW-BK with automotive paint finish without the fancy window.

I love the gmono case 8) but the 120mm front fan needs more air holes.

I don't think it's removable because the power for the light goes to the front door. There is a lock which is broken that I will be removing. Not sure how I will get on with a door, I might have to cur a hole for the power button, although I use the keyboard to turn on my PC 8)

well the main things I'm looking for are 3 3.5" bays to mount a screen behind and good looks. tbh, this matches them. I'm not too fussed about the build quality because you only build it once!

but I am open to suggestions for a case for about £30 (my budget) that is stylish with 3 floppy drive bays. It will be sprayed if neccessary so don't worry about colour and window

EDIT: Been looking at this - do you think that the usb ports that are taking up a spare floppy drive can be taken out?

Image

It will take a bit of modding but the usb ports will come out and I'm sure I could move them somewhere else. Good job I have 4 weeks off for christmas, I think this case may be the one, thanks for opening my eyes snkebite! 8)
