i've got a case budget of £50, i assume i can get a better case for that price. Any suggestions anyone. I was going to get the sahara p35 that was 50 earlier but its now back up to 80. Preferably one that comes with atleast 2 fans, and maybe a mesh front for good air cooling. Any help?

I would recommend the following cases for your budget.

PHANTEKS ECLIPSE P300
Salman S5 RGB
MSI Mag vampiric 011c Ryzen edition

All from overclockers.co.uk

Just so you know if fans come with any case they are always really crap

cooling wise or noise wise. If it's only noise wise i don't mind at all, i have headphones on 24/7, and it can't be louder than my jet engine ps4.

There's the Sahara EK22 ( tempered side panel with a bit of a mesh front) with 4 fans on ebay for around 50. Has 4 included fans and even has different options for the fans ie turbo, duo or normal pirate. Might be of interest to you.

I got the sahara case for £42 with the 4 fans and controller and it is nice. Another case I got is the white CiT F3 Mid Tower Gaming Case off CCL Online for around £20-£25 which comes with 2 fans and good ventilation. I actuallly prefer it to the Sahara but might be a bit small/cheap for some people.

I bought the SaharaGaming C500B ATX Black p35 colour on May 29th for half price from Amazon. My order got delayed, now its out of stock, so I won't be getting that one I guess

I am also looking for a £50 case, inclined towards cooler Master ovenbox Q300L

You can drop the front fan a little and pop another above it, helps with extra airflow on that F3. decent case for price.

usual i shove a nice F12 fan above the LED one, as its hidden out of site from the LED but enough gap to drag some extra airflow into it.

there's like 4 ek22s with the same name, which is the one that comes with the 4 fans. And is ebay trustworthy for buying cases?

that's the thing, don't want to buy a case, just to spend extra on premium fans. Just want it all in one so i don't have to worry about it. Atleast 1 intake and 1 exhaust.

the alternate could be, buy a £30-40 case that comes with no fans and spend £10-20 on 2 premium fans. If that's a viable option then could someone recommend a good £30 case?

Bought this two years ago similar price the observatory is the better option same tooling but better front panel and rgb
What about this case: Sharkoon VG7-W RGB Black Mid Tower Case
Comes with 3 fans, Mesh front, ATX - £51 on amazon
eh looks like it has pretty bad cable management options judging from the reviews.

It's the ones that are 49.99. The 44.99 says it's without fans and the other three if you look at the title where its in brackets it tells you the type of fans included, either Sahara pirate(normal flat rgb fan), turbo (same as the pirate but has a cone shape middle) and duo (same as the pirate but has rgb on both sides of the fan) you can see these in the pictures included.
If you're paying with PayPal you have no worries, I think it's actually worse for sellers as ebay always side with the buyer in most situations.
And for this specific seller he seems to have a 98.1% rating so seems to be good.

I can recommend the Phanteks P300, a cracking case for £50, got mine from PC World online and the airflow is fantastic. The only thing to be wary of is that it has no CD/DVD drive bays. Has a tempered glass side panel too, not a plastic one.

It's been £54 for a while now though.

Must of been a while cant remember it being 50 in ages.. unless it dropped and I missed it.

It's good case, doesnt get the credit it deserves tbh.

I know ccl are buggers for dropping their £51 £52 53 cases to 49.99 then u got to pay postage for most folks lol..
Edited by: "sarden84" 9th Jun
Think i might just buy this case and then maybe spend 8 quid or so on an extra fan, is that a good idea. I've got a tomahawk max mobo if you're wondering.

I got it back in feb, for 49.99 with a b450m mortar max. Solid case and it has good dust filters.
The included fan controller is also great. I could add extra fans and some RGB strips (I don't need to,4 is already included)
