Good deal Frank, heat added

Soo tempting. I really don't need a new case but

Thanks have just ordered one but from Maplin as it's the same price and I can use student discount

same price as last deal from maplin, but this is much more convinent as it was not easy getting this home.

That's a steal, thanks Frank!

Once you go mini-ITX, you never go back. This is a nice price though!

Nice case; bought from Maplin for a new build. Very easy to put together.

This or the £29.99 Corsair 230T from Maplin?

Any discount codes going with this Frank?

Thanks - not sure I needed it, but....

i have this exact case. cost me 90 quid from maplin about 6 months ago... very nice case. this will take a twin fan all in one watercooler but only just! i managed to squeeze in a corsair h115i cooler at the top and it was very tight. for under £50 thats a very good price.

Bought in July. Same price from maplin. Great case from a great manufacturer.

I got one of these from Maplin and am really pleased - if you want a quieter and more polished looking case this is the one to go for - otherwise the 230T isn't a bad choice.

How good is the 330R in terms of cooling and catching dust? Also, what build do you have in yours (if you don't mind my asking)

Nothing special in mine really - an AMD FX 6300, R9 380 and a decent amount of RAM and storage. I had an Antec 300 previously which was OK but the switches gave up really quickly and so when I saw one of these decided to pick one up. The front is closed off so dust is less of a problem and the top has a removable cover in case you want to cool more or fit a water cooling radiator. The toolless design is really helpful and it looks good - quite understated but with a feeling of quality.

I'm thinking I'll keep this case as a back up if I can't get the other one from Maplin. Looked at some reviews and it's a nice quality case but cable management isn't the best. For the price range though there'll always be something you don't like. I think the LED fans and windowed panel in the 230T but the 330R just has a nice 'premium solid build' look to it

Exactly. I'm tempted by the 230t to put some spares in and maybe make it look a bit bling!

Grabbed the Maplins offer earlier in the year and transferred my sons components into it - no need for super neat wiring as no transparant door. Just front and rear fans, super quiet (use speedfan because I'm ancient like that) and it seems to be good as dust filtering. Looks great in situe compared to the old tsunami and front USB3 is great for external HDD and phone, memory card etc for file transfers.

shame no psu with it

tempted as i need a new quiet case but this is pretty tall and wide and it completely lacks good options for hdd's (cage is non-removable and very cramped, no ssd mounts) which is quite a throwback to 2013 when it was originally made - been a while since i've had a single optical drive in a PC i've built let alone 3 so that's all wasted space and the 'fan controller' is a low/medium/high voltage switch, you are far better off plugging fans into motherboard and letting that manage speeds. lot of reviews mention the front door is plastic not aluminium and pretty flimsy too.

This or the other Phanteks case deal

I know the price difference is double, but is the performance/value? Planning a Ryzen 7 build for next month.

i bought this case because it was one of the thinness and smallest cases (with 5.25 drive slots) in its class that can take a 280mm radiator... its 45cm by 20cm. i couldnt find any smaller.. most where over 50 cm tall and 10 cm wide.

the harddrives slot in and out nice and easy. no real need to pull out the whole cage.. unless you regularly pull out all four hardrives itll never be an issue. if you really need to pull all 4 out at the same time its literally 5 seconds lol. the hardrive mounts are easy to use and they can take an ssd too. but yeh there isnt a specific separate mount elsewhere for one. ive atually mounted mine on top the harddrive cage. theres plenty of room there for one. ive got four harddrives and an ssd in there with no issues.

agreed the fan controller is best ignored, dont think anyone ever uses one of those anymore. not sure why its included, probably inherited from an earlier model and not deleted yet. the front door is as sturdy as any other door ive seen on a case. depends if you want to hang heavy objects on it. if its left alone, either open for extra ventilation or closed for quietness, its not going to pose any problems.

really its main selling point is the sound proofing. most dont have that to this level. so a few compromises in other others can be ignored. if you just want a small case then there are probably others that are much better. but i dont think many will have anywhere near the quality of soundproofing this one does. its got mats and padding everywhere lol.

What a great deal

Yeah, didn't though as only 1 left nationwide and it's has quite a bit of scratching

I've never felt the lack of ssd mounts in any case - there's normally somewhere to wedge them and maybe cable tie to something else!

to be honest bit of duct tape wherever i can get a cable neatly to - used sides, behind hdd cages and even inside roof ! decided to buy one as i've never had a soundproofed case before even if layout is bit of a blast from the past (though bottom-mounted PSU is a boon), will be overkill for my mini-itx board but sufficiently future-proof

sounds like you've owned one mate, you sure on those dimensions ? amazon and official corsair site list it as "49.3 x 21.1 x 48.5 cm" which, while not massive, is still 10cm taller and several cm wider than an average midi-tower

depends on how seriously you are gonna overclock and if you use water, the phantek seems both massive overkill in the vents department and potentially quite loud - i've read fractal design r4's are often recommended and are cheaper plus have side windows. best thing is google for reviews from trusted sites like bit-tech that can accurately compare temperatures and noise levels as well as giving a better run-down of it's features and cooling options.

Nofan case??

Nofan case??



it's got a 140mm in and a 120mm out, all you need for air cooling unless you wanna open the top vent and stick another 120/140 in but that negates the point of a silent case. bundled fans aren't meant to be much cop but reviews suggest they do their jobs, and you can squeeze a dual fan watercooling radiator onto back

Thanks OP! Needed a new case, and this seems to fit the bill without costing a fortune. Will be interesting to see how long it takes to come as it says between 17th and 23rd. Heat added.
