Looks good, especially for £40! Would be a great starter case.
Great price. Not a fan of the top mounted PSU though and front airflow looks non existent, bottom mounted fans instead.
oh what?

Your one looks OK (not on airflow) but its completely different (size, glass etc)?

I have got sharkoon night shark which is same apart of front (two rgb fans and 5.25 drive bay). My normal usage settigs - fans 600-700 rpm, cpu fan 800-900 rpm, gpu fans - 0 rpm = 25 -35 °C on cpu. In heavy gaming i have max 55-60 °C, of course with higher rpm on all fans.

no not similar at all, only usb 2 fp header, probably not steel at all and worst of all it has bottom moounted psu.

why? AFAIK there is only two real differences
1 bottom mounted allows the rest of the case to be much lighter, ie much cheaper thinner aluminium
2. bottom mounted places the psu in the worst possible place for air intake, a ¼ gap right next to the pile of dust that usually accumulates below the PC unless it is moved and cleaned under every few days. PSU boards and thick layers of dust do not mix well.

Top mounted PSU will pull a lot of heat from the other components through it.

You have a point about the bottom mount and dust but this case only has bottom mounted fans so dust is going to be an issue anyway.
Nice price for a starter case but can't see a way for the intake fans to really get much air with a front panel like that. I would suggest something with a bit more mesh. Otherwise you'll just choke your parts of any air and could potentially cause thermal throttling for the more intensive titles.

This ia great price for adecent case. If it were NZXT on the badge, you could at least double up on the price?

Actually the bottom mounted fans will probably prevent dust build up on the bottom but it will blow it in the case, forcing those with innerds on display to clean in there
.
The problem with bottom mounted psu's is that the fan at the rear has enough pull to simply make a blanket of dust under the pc as it is mostly running on idle until the blanket gets so thick it will block a considerable amount of cool air.

The strategy for airflow is the most important aspect, with a DHE gfx card and liquid cooled CPU there is not a lot of heat inside the case, certainly not as much as the PSU will generate anyway.
