I live just down the road from them and I have been using them for around 15 years. great retailer and I would recommend.
Looks great for the price.
A bit cheaper at Aria if you are able to collect (In Manchester) or have free delivery by being a member of Kitguru forums.

I bought this case recently for my Ryzen build and it's quite nice looking, easy to build in and good cable management. My only complaint is the metal is very thin, I rested my arm on the top of the case (with not much pressure) and it slightly dented/ flexed inwards. Also it's an acrylic side panel and not a tempered glass one, but perhaps that's asking for too much at this price.


On a weird tangent, I noticed on this particular case the USB 3 socket on the front of the case has both a USB 3 connector to the Motherboard and a USB 2 connector.
Meaning the motherboard needs three USB 2 headers;
>one for Front USB 2,
>one for Front SD Card reader,
>one for Front USB 3.
However my motherboard only had two USB 2 headers, and one USB 3 header. I plugged the connector for the Front USB 3 port only into the USB 3 header and it works fine.
Not sure what to make of that? Maybe there is a USB 2 connector on the USB 3 socket, so that you can use it even if the motherboard doesn't have a USB 3 header?

I did a build recently in an AVP case that had the same thing with the USB 3 connector, I assumed the same as you (that it was for motherboards without USB 3) and it seemed to work fine. You'd think they'd put something in the case documentation to explain what it is, confused the hell out of me.
Anyone know if this could House a twin fan radiator ?

There is space for 3x 120mm fans at the front.
This won't fit a Hyper 212 CPU cooler, just make a note of that.

It's for backwards compatibility to save using an adaptor. If you were to make a budget build with an LGA775 motherboard for example, you'd plug the USB2 plug in and the USB3 ports would run at the speed of 2.
I got the case earlier and just completed a build in it, not a bad case at all to work in, plenty of room, decent airflow and some nice features like the ability to add fans below the GPU. On the downside it's obvious where savings were made, the materials are not as high quality as more expensive cases as you'd expect, but it's still got to be the best budget case I've used.
A good looking case and not a bad price.

What is the airflow like, would it be cool enough for a heavily overclocked CPU? I cant see any air vents on the the front panel.

There's a decently sized intake at the bottom of the panel, plus an intake on the bottom of the case. Airflow isn't incredible but I've had no problems with a 2500k and a HD 7850 both overclocked.
