Yes i agree but at £4.99 you cant really expect any fans

the case i have just now cost over £100 (acousticase) and it came with no fans

I would consider that a good thing for a case like this, at less than £5, could you imagine the 'quality' of fans included?? X)

Guess these cases are mainly for system builders churning out "budget" PC's for the punters. I personally wouldn't touch it with a barge pole but if you need a cheat and nasty case, it will serve it's purpose

Perfectly acceptable for a budget pc for a kid - even if you only want to transfer the innards from something a bit older and spruce it up for xmas.

0.5mm steel is *very* thin. Even the super cheap cases from the likes of ebuyer are normally 0.6mm....

Look where the PSU goes in these cases! ..that is why they are cheap!

Wow, that's actually really bizarre.

They are not there to compete with sub £100 cases just a very cheap alternative for system builders
Or for kids bedrooms
even if its just to use as a test system for those into trying out computer stuff

Ideally for £8.51 I would want a PSU included aswell, still ok deal tho

If the PSU is fitted on the bottom of the case facing down, how the hell do you plug it in?

Red felt tip pens are much cheaper

My Antec 1200 case has the PSU spot right at the bottom at the back as well, if the case has proper ventilation the heat will get out no problem.

This for £5 is very cheap, people who want fans with it for this price must be crazy. A decent case runs you £50+ usually and that's without a PSU maybe a couple of fans. But yes good for a cheap build or testing.

I am a system builder who does not mind the odd budget case for a 'rebuild' of older components and I'm certainly no snob, but the placement of the power supply is a joke. There would be no cool air drawn in as the PSU fan is on the bottom! It's a bit like covering the vents on a hair dryer, it will just overheat. For those who remember (and it's being revisited) it would be the perfect case for sale in Reggie Perrin's Grot shop!

Cheap cases are a plague upon the IT world.

You don't have to pay £100 for a good case. Good cases start from £30 ish. The extra £20 saves you slicing your hands up putting it together, makes putting it together and working on it in the future much, much easier and quicker, generally look and feel much better, and last longer. Plus they'll have a 'normal' PSU setting that wont overheat and set your house on fire.

These may be cheap, but there is a reason. And tool-less entry and maintenance is a godsend.

well i'm doing a complete re-build for her anyway, might as well colour code it the way she like for a mere fiver

willh

Wow, that's actually really bizarre.



What you on about, that's the normal place to have a psu oO

Oh I see now...you mean the holes at the back where a fan pushes out warm air?

Well, this is a MICRO ATX case...it's a for micro atx motherboards officially...obviously is for use with one of them micro atx psu jobbies...

Retailer must have mislabled it all?

nope still dont make sense, it comes with different grille bits to put a micro and standard atx psu...maybe they just trying to accomodate both peeps.

BEWARE - I have bought cheap cases from Ebuyer and Dabs in the past and they have been really good value for money. However, about 5 weeks ago I ordered two of these from Buytech and they arrived dented and the front panels cracked and smashed. Customer services were initially very good - they asked me for photos of the damage and once I had emailed them they said the fault was with the carrier and they sent me two more. Lo and behold the two replacements were in a worse condition than the first two. I emailed customer services again and they wouldn't reply.

As to the quality of the cases they really are the most cheap and nasty ones that I have seen. I remain over £20 out of pocket and I took these rubbish cases down to the local tip. This has taught me two lessons; don't ever buy from Buytech again and secondly, never pay anything less than £18 for a cheap case without a PSU and buy it from one of the larger suppliers.

Are you mad?

ordered two for Total: £13.50 thanks

PMSL yeah if you like frying your compenents or having the fan fail after a month

So tempting, nice enough case, grerat size, seems like decent placement, anyone installed anything inside yet?

On the PSU I do not know which is better but I have had my PSU at the bottom of my PC for a few years now ,Coolermaster case, and I prefer it, makes access a lit easier and allows more air to escape out of the top....ahhh who knows, not a problem though.
Great tester base though.

mumbojumbo

The PSU screws into the base instead of the back, an extension cable … The PSU screws into the base instead of the back, an extension cable plugs into the PSU and goes up to the rear where you plug in your normal mains cable.


Ah. That's properly mental. Maybe passable for cheap internals but definitely not the best thought-out positioning.

bargain!

bargain price for a simple case!
