I'd been looking for this case for the little ones Xmas PC - cheapest I've been able to find it, thought it may be of use to someone. Few in stock but it states more on the way.

nice find op very cool case. heat added

Some say you need to keep a case cold for optimum pc performance. I say this case needs some heat.

Presumably windowed cases would go on top of your desk so you can admire the innards (until they get covered in dust). So wouldn't it make more sense for the front USB ports to be at the bottom on the case rather than at the top?

Welp looks as though I've been doing it wrong all these years, mine has been on the floor next to my desk.

Have this case, looks awesome, the green window causes other leds (e.g. Blue) to show as green through it too.

​lol!

Don't see many green cases. Wish i could justify spending this much on a case when my current one is more than adequte X)

It also comes with 3x Green Riing Fan's which are ~£10 each

Looks like an updated version of the Cooler Master CM690

Quite like the colour, heated

How easy would it be for someone like me who knows very little about pc's to buy this case and build one. Would it work out lots cheaper or am I better off buying a built one. Looking for a i7 and 8 or 16gb ram

​It's very easy to build a PC, there are, quite literally hundreds of guides and forums online that you can utilise. I would definitely recommend reading a lot before getting started so not to make obvious mistakes. Also deciding exactly what you want the PC should be your first point of call as you can then tailor the build to suit.

It's very easy to build a PC for a novice, but if a part is faulty then you might have quite a problem finding out which part is faulty, usually this is between PSU, RAM, Motherboard, GPU and CPU, if you have one of those parts faulty then you'd need another one to swap it with to test. So if all your parts are good then as long as you don't mash up the pins on the motherboard or CPU depending whether it's AMD (pins on CPU) or Intel (pins on motherboard) then you should be good to go. I first built a PC in 1996 and to be honest even though I work selling PC's I rarely build them now as it's very boring for me, some people love doing it and setting them up, I've done so many I couldn't care less.

Summary:

In theory and practice it's usually easy to build a PC, if you screw it up then you could end up a few hundred quid or more out of pocket, which is why pc-specialist, overclockers, novatech and other sites exist to build one for you at a cost. If anyone wants to build a PC these days I would say go for it, just remember fault diagnosis could be your downfall.

Lastly NEVER buy PC parts just before Christmas, unless you've researched and know they're a decent price, you'll notice that DDR4 RAM has greatly risen in price now if you check, and always new tech comes out straight after Christmas, for example on January 5th 2017 KabyLake CPUs will be released and the new chipset motherboards, H270, Z270 etc. Also AMD Zen is due to be released but later in 2017, which may or may not give Intel something to think about. There's always hype with AMD releases and so far the hype has been 100% wrong for every AMD release for years. Zen could be different, the hype is that AMD will have an 8 core CPU for around £300 than can compete with Intel's £1000 hex core, hype is as hype does though, so we'll see.

In the market for a fish tank, this will do nicely. Thanks OP.

Thanks for both replys. I don't actually need it to do a great deal, I would need programs like Microsoft Word to edit invoices, chrome browser to manage content on my plex server and I would quote like to Tey editing videos. I was initially thinking 4k but upon reading it seems you need some decent hardware for that. So I may just record in 1080p so they're easier to edit.

But that's about it really. Won't be gaming on it or anything like that.

Don't have any equipment to test if parts are faulty so buying pre built might be easier.

My case needs an upgrade, this may be the one looks very nice
