How does this compare to a Fractal Design R3, which is the same price at Scan?

Thanks mamboboy, I thought as much after reading the description. I'm really liking the look of the i7-2600k combo they had on the today only page (yesterday), but the bitfenix case is hideous. I like my PC's quiet, but i'm a bit worried that the Fractal will cook any components I put in it.

I think this is what the Sniper will look like when you've got a finished build;

Great case. Gets really good reviews too. I have seen it in the flesh, and it's quite solid looking.
Its been retailling for ~£110 for a while, so this is a really good price.

Do they call it Sniper because when you see how ugly it is you either want to shoot yourself or it! Is it bullet proof by chance?
I’m too old for these bling-tastic cases.

if someone really want to steal stuff inside the case...wouldn't it be easier to take the whole case?

And its power consumption will be a bit higher, since need to power all those light and fan....

Original Poster

The leds are on the fans. And those tiny leds use barely any extra power... plus CM included a switch to turn them off.

still i think the case is too expensive.
sure it look nice but will its fans and all those hole on the case help cool down component in it?
i'm sure you know that air flow the least resistance.
so will cool air pass near those hot component or wasted....

In tests, this case performs very well on the cooling front - so yes, the fans and the "holes" do a good job of keeping components cool.

With regards to the price, i'm a little out of touch on these things now, but 5 years ago a case like this (or the Fractal one I mentioned earlier) would've cost over 150 quid. I think this is actually a decent case for the money, much better than those Silverstone/BitFenix models that are in the same price bracket. Anyway, it's the best price around and we're on a Deals site
