This here: http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=2908 was in Currys megastore @ Lakeside/Thurrock retail park for £25.

Thought it a bargain, and thought I'd share. Review: http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=10255&page=11

I went in a couple of weeks ago to this Lakeside store, and they had a pile near the front door. Today I think I got the last one, but I did over hear them speak about one more knocking around.

The PCWorld a few doors down has also just had a make over, but no ideas if they have any stock, and no ideas if this is [email protected]

Cracking case, this is a steal.
#5
Great price for a great case.
#6
Bought this case to build my son's Core i7-920 gaming system. Not as flashy as some other cases but good design, well built and plenty of room for expansion/cooling. The snap fittings for the HDD's etc make installation a breeze. I put in an extra 120mm fan at the front and it runs nice and cool. Recommended.

Don't appear to be any stock in London.

Maybe you should have posted it up couple of weeks ago if they were this price?

Flipping amazing deal if you can get your lucky mitts on one. Heat :thumbsup:
#9

Definitely!


How? xD

i can 100% recommend this.
i went through 3 cheap generic ones before getting this (paid a lot more than £25 too) and was shocked at how much better it is.

sharp edges in those generic cases is like playing suicide roulette. can cut an artery at any time poking around inside them.

maybe you should buy a cheap one, then this, just to appreciate how good it is....
#18
no it doesnt have a removable tray
#19
None in Folkestone, Ashford or Canterbury.....Currys don't seem to sell cases on their own.

Have voted cold....looks like a one off

Cheapest Cooler Master in PC World was £39.99 for the Elite 330

For those who are planning to buy and want to a do a bit of modding/tidying inside the case then this is a very good buy.
A dremel might come in handy though, some awkward edges if you are trying to fit a neat cabling system which this case accommodates very well. Good fan coverage and the coolermaster ones that come with it are decent enough. Tonnes of space, well built, gets dusty but with the holes a hoover removes a good bit of dust.
Fitting hidden cables around the back of the mobo plate can be a tad tricky with the side of the case not fitting too flush, that is why I would dremel out the bottom part of the mobo plate to allow for better fitted cabling.
If you are looking for a great case to mod for you own system definitely grab one of these but it does need some tweaking if you are actively seeking a PC with hidden cabling that wont cost you over £100.

I think I'll go for the Cooler Master Elite from Ebuyer.....it's only £25 http://www.ebuyer.com/search?sort=pricelow&store=2&cat=23&mfr=151&limit=10&page=1

Plus this OCZ PSU also from Ebuyer: http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/636224/ocz-400w-stealth-xstream-psu-24-99-

My apologies, but I had no idea that it was a 'hot' deal. I didn't buy one back then.
#23
Sorry for repeating myself a bit here guys, but I have £35 for a new case and want to make sure I get the right one (first time building my own PC! Have all the other components already). I previously posted a link to a budget £25 one which has rave reviews on Hexus and the ebuyer review system and apparently combats all the usual faults of a generic case (e.g. rough edges, room). Of the link ironeagle provided and the one I gave (or even any elsewhere!) what is the best case I can get for my money? I will pop down to Currys/PC World this afto and try my luck (Lancaster) but I don't hold out much hope!

Thanks,
Chris

I'd be interested in the answer to this before I commit to buy.

Here's a link to the Cooler Master site of the Ebuyer case I was looking at: http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?category_id=19&product_id=4253

how'd you manage to put an extra one in at the front? i've been looking at doing it and was wondering how it could be done.

btw this is an awesome case, i thought i got a bargain when it was £50! its immensely spacious, plenty of options for cable routing/management and ample space for a big graphics card! well worth £25

coolermaster make very well made cases, although the cheaper ones do tend to be a lot smaller. it all depends on the size of a lot of your components, mainly the graphics card (though unless your planning on getting a 5870 or something greater than a gtx 260 (which are pretty massive cards) then you should be fine. i'd also take a look at the antec 300 is also a great case, although more expensive it has more fans, more room and is really well made,

No need to apologise my-planet - was just a suggestion:thumbsup:

I have one of these and there no need to drill holes, i managed to shove every single cable attatched from my corsair modular PSU(including the spare 8pin pci-e power hard attached) though the square down the bottom and cable tied them all behind the non-removable mobo plate.

You can also buy the windowed side which comes with an extra 120mm fan to cool the gfx card.

although more expensive it has more fans


I also had a 300 and it has 1x140mm top fan and one 120mm rear fan, the cm690 iirc comes with 2x top 120mm a front and a rear 120mm also (i may have added them at some stage so dont take it for granted, i can't remember)
