I bought this case a few weeks back it's great for the price , comes with 3 RGB fans and controller , I have added another 3 fans and the build looks great.38485121-c3dhb.jpg
Note that due to the design, no DVD reader/writer can be fitted. Sounds obvious, but just to make people aware

Plus case comes with colour controller for fans
The front mesh should provide for excellent airflow and the included argb fans are the icing on the top.
Seems really cheap - what’s the metal quality like? The cheaper cases typically have poor cuts and tin-foil like thickness.

I've found this to be the also in the past.

Bought many cheap ones that bent, ended up with a coolermaster acts 201 which cost a bit, but still in one piece to this day. Has had my p4 through to core i5 2500k

I think mine must be from a similar era - Coolermaster Stacker STC-01 full tower case. Heavy as heck but solid build construction and it has outlasted every system I've put in it so far. Must be pushing 15 years old now. Started with AMD I think, then Q6600, i7-2600k and now i9-9900K. Doesn't matter the size of cooler, card or motherboard - everything fits

Does anyone know if the front fans are actually supplied? It says: 'It also comes with a built-in 12cm fan and supports more with reserved fan ports at the front of the case.' in the product description. But says 3 x RGB Fan with control button next to the picture & shows 3 fans in that picture impying it's not just reserved ports but actual fans included. So not sure.

Tech specs say "Reserved Fan Ports: Front: with 3x12cm RGB fan, support 240mm liquid cooler"


Therefore 3 of the 12cm fan ports are reserved with RGB fans currently in the system. Otherwise they'd need to state "supports 3x12cm fans or 240mm liquid cooler"

Thats how it at least comes across to me. If it is the case then this deal is a cracker cause most rgb fans set you back £10-20 so getting 3 of them + case + controller seems like a deal to me.
Thanks OP, ordered. I read it that fans were included. I had to pay circa £3-4 postage so maybe this needs to be added?

Yeah that's what I'm thinking, if the fans were included it'd make me buy it. I emailed them & I'll let people know if someone hasn't already bought it so can confirm.

I ordered one for my 12 year old sons first build, and i am not sure what the build quality is like but with the fans included i just could not resist it at that price.

Will be fine probably. I generally find the more expensive are a bit easier to build in with a little more refinement but it is just a box at the end of the day.

It is what is inside that counts. Deep I know

good that your 12 year old is getting into gaming , theres good money to be made if you get them playing the right game and they get really good at it . I just got back from the Apex legends invitational and it was an amazing event , wish i was young again
Is this a midi or full tower
Has anyone tried to build a PC using only hot deal components?
Just bought this, looks good for the price to be fair

You can control the speed but it seems like only two settings are available
Thanks for posting @marlej23_ we have added this to the Highlights section
So consensus on the build quality? Is this worth going for?
Very tempting but never heard of the brand and it’s cheap with RGB fans but I guess it can’t have as bad build quality as my CoolerMaster Q300L does

I have the Q300L too and find it a bit warm so hoping this will allow for more airflow, given that it’s a bit larger, more internal room etc... I might sell on the RGB fans if anyone is interested? Mine is due tomorrow...

Not allowed to sell on here unfortunately.

Yeah I had heat problems too, and a dead USB plug, very bent grill on the bottom, magnetic covers bending easy and just generally bad build quality and design.

Got a NZXT H500 now and never looked back.
£30 appears to be about the right price the fans can be had for around £15 and the case itself is worth about £15.

Personally i find its better to pay more for quality both on the fans and case side of things but it's up to each person just find it strange how people will pay out so much for quality other parts but cheap out on cases and fans.
Thanks OP. Ordered. Had my eye on this earlier in the year for £60. Glad I waited it out. My boys in for a nice surprise, his current rig is a bit of a frankenstein abomination

I just got this in the post for my sons build and its better quality than i though it would be and it has plenty of room in it and with 3 RGB fans and remote included and a fan on the back, for that price i am thinking of buying another one and changing my case

Quick follow up after great customer service from eBuyer. I had to order another to get it delivered tomorrow but they gave me free next day delivery and a refund of postage costs on the original one. They will collect the damaged one tomorrow too and refund me for it when its returned. Decided Ill give it another go despite my reservations. Fingers crossed.
Clearly Im destined not to get one of these cases! My Ebuyer order had a processing problem so its not coming today. I have decided to cancel and will look for an alternative case. Any recommendations welcome? My Cooler master Q300L is a great size but I feel it gets too warm, despite a good few fans. I hope others don't have my problem and enjoy their EG CD48's!

Quick one. Do you know if the rgb fans can be connected to the motherboard for sync the rgb lights? Thanks
Received mine and transferred everything over. Great case for the price! Only annoying thing was that the power connector for the led fans is molex and my PSU only has sata power connectors so I needed to buy a convertor. Amazon prime to the rescue! (Convertor ordered on Sat, Delivered on Sun).
