It's cheap tat and barely worth £30, I bought it with a PSU deal from Scan for £40.

The edges are sharp inside the case, the fixings are cheap plastic rubbish and space is tight if you have non standard components.

You get what ya pay for...

I have one of these and a Elite 331. Good Case. Although have seen them for cheaper on Scan Today Only.

I have this for my second pc , only it was £25 at the time from scan , sort of a mixed bad , it looks nice and i cant remember noticing any sharp edges ,
the screwless design and the quick release drivebay fixings are good " although they only fixed from 1 side if i remember " ,as is the side fan with the CPU duct .
Space wise although a little small its fine for the average pc components , metal is thin but not as thin as some i have had the misfortune of handling .
All in all its no more than decent . for the money i think there are better cases out there

I have been using this case for the last couple of years. I would describe it as very adequate. It is easy to work with, sturdy and reasonable looking.

If you want flashing led lights, glow in the dark fans and clear side panels, then this is obviously not the case for you, but if you’re working on a budget, in my opinion it’s hard to beat for the price.

Also available with 460w PSU installed:

I bought this case just over a year ago. Pros: decent amount of space, looks good. Cons: thin metal, some sharp edges, power button is cheap & nasty (alot have broken). At the time of buying I could have bought an Antec for only £12 more - wish I had.

Hmmmm, now let me see, do i trust the reviews of a company trying to sell the product, or do i believe my own experience in owning the case?

Easy decision, ain't it?

What makes it even easier to decide is this "review" left by IanT, and I quote:

does and it also has the added bonus of dropping my CPU temp by 5oC!



Do you believe that?

Dropping his case by 5 degrees C? Thats understandable, as it has a nice air flow system, unless you thought he typed 50C? Its an o not a 0.

And yes I own the case too, thats why I posted the deal

I own this too, got it with the psu deal, was using it as a test bed system but it was better than my previous case so I replaced it with this.

Pros:

Toolless design
Sturdy
120mm fan bays x 2
USB and stereo jacks are in a 3.5mm bay
More spacious than many cases in this price range

Cons:

Mine only came with 4 total 5.25 screwless holders (dunno why as there's room to put them on both sides) - how many people use more than 2 drives though?
Only the side fan side had the thumb screws (again I had some spare)
No side fan (I just added my own)
Firewire plate is blank (I just added my own)
Expansion card securing mechanism doesn't work too well with screws as well

Conclusion:

Good for a mid range build, excellent for modding, most other decent companies don't really have any similar products. Won't fit large cpu coolers or graphics cards so when buying you have to be aware of the dimensions of the parts you will get.

Yes that is how I read it so i take that back, my opinion still stands though since I also have one. [Sort the reviews using the filters and you will see others describing the same as my observations of the case..]

Clearly we disagree on this anyway so no point us argueing, I'm used to Antec cases so maybe I am spoilt and was expecting better, yet I heard nothing but good things about Coolermaster, but they never lived up to my expectations..lol

Awful case, GF had one, stripped it, put everything into a Zalman Z1 for £20 more than this.

If you have £30 to burn then I guess you could do worse, not sure how though.

No reflection on the OP, but sorry, wouldn't buy it for a tenner.
