This case looks awful, Silverstone do far better looking cases although you may need to spend a little more to get them.

EXZAMS

looks like a transformer meets darth vader

Computerman

i wasnt so sure whether to vote this hot, but then i thougt 1000w psus normally cost over £100, then saw the "SAVING £66" and the picture of a goreous looking case it gets heat from me. If i was to build a beast i might have ivested in this, good find. People please dont vote cold due to price. Take a good look at it before deciding, this is after all a psu with stupidly high wattage and a large good looking case, i assume it would be ideal for water cooling.

Nice case. Does it have something to prevent hard disk vibrations ?

crofter

Yes the offer or something similar will pop up again!! That is the good thing about Hexus if you register you can recommend products to Scan for there TODAY ONLY deals ... basically with the free delivery you could build a top notch PC by just purchasing one or two items a week from that section.

big_sausage

I have this case, it is really good. You can fit loads of drives (5.25 inch or 3.5 inch) into the front bays. The hinges can be swapped to the other side so the front door can open either way. It is a little on the large side though, this would be my only slight criticism.

It's worth noting that the PSU that comes with the case is in fact a different revision than the one in the review there. It's PCAP3 I think (I got the same case but with the side window so it might be different in the standard one), I believe it has one big fan rather than 2 smaller and is slightly better (though it hasn't got the voltage switch for non 230 countries). The only major criticism for a case in this price range is that there's no side panel fan on the windowed model and the removable dust covers just slide out, I assumed the metal clips holding the dust covers would bend out and back in but they just snap off. Probably just a rare bad one with the buttons breaking as mine seems really good quality, far be it from me to suggest the previous posters might be heavy handed but I have had no problems and I'm a 6"3 weight trainer and mma student. Returning to whether it deserves to be up here as a deal, probably not as the price has fluctuated and this is more like the average price than a good one, although I believe it is a web exclusive to Ebuyer so good for people who aren't in the know. Though that being said would such people even bother to get a quality case rather than the cheap tat beginners go for. We've all done it! Overall though it is a good deal just not a new one to those in the know and you would probably expect to pay close to £80 if bought separately, yes in the states you'd pay like 40 but Europe always get screwed.

pl.peter

Nope, it is a 4 leg spider-like plastic construction, if one of the legs breaks thats it.

exit75

so if the button breaks there's no way to fix it?

pl.peter

Shop I work in sells this cases and PSU. It is good value for money, especially I like the PSU. Case looks very good, but the build quality is not so great (all you need to do is pull the front out and look at it from the other side - cheap plastic :) ) The new one have different switch, it is located on the right hand side rather than on the front, propably will last longer, I've seen at least three of the old type ones broken. Usually as emergency measure I get around it by connecting the reset switch instead. The usb ports are also locaed on the right hand side, which is not so convinient in my opinion. Anyway, even for £59.99 I would recommend this.

airey

Have to agree with the flimsy on/off switch, mine has done exactly the same. Snapped off after few months. Apart from that though the case seems ok.

Agreed, I have a 8800GS running fine with a 400W sigmatech PSU, works fine. It is partly down to the amps and not having too many meaningless devices.

J400uk

My Dell i7 with a 4850 came supplied with a 360w PSU, no problems at all.

Golaboots888

I'm assuming that all PC PSU wattages are measured as peaks. 750W is the same amount of power as a big hammer drill!

wewontgetfooleda

cheapo case but the psu really is a let down nowadays u want about 600-750w to power a descent machine with a good graphics card...

FGEvans

it looks ok i would not be too concerned about the case itself but i would worry about the PSU especially if you bought it expecting it to deliver 450w which its unlikely to do. however unless you are putting in an expensive graphics card etc then it should be fine for most people.

Think you've looked at the 500w instead.

7777777

stay away from this rubbish, do not waste your time and money. I can bet the 800W is only peak power and the rails are pretty weak.Sorry OP but cold this time.

Computerman

yes they can. and no i havent had any experience nor have i heard any1 using them. id rather go for brands like antec. edit: however it does depend what you got in the pc. if u have a low end basic pc then it may be fine as the components of cheap pcs wont cost an arm and a leg to replace. if you have a high end gaming pc with expensive hardware. i wouldnt buy this thinking ur going to save a few pounds, since u might damage your components after long periods of use even if u dont realise it will effect the life of your components if your psu is not supplying enough wattage. if you use the psu to lets say 700-800w it may fry/explode depending on the qaulity of the psu.

Super_Bob, I may agree to the x5 version, but not this one that was clearly aimed at users 3 years ago & would've probably made much better sense at the time :thumbsup: A bit OTT, but hey everyone has a right to his/her opinion. Actually it's https://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?t=401651 over the weekend.

Super_Bob

Ok just to clear up a few things: Not all power supplies are the same, 700watt £30 unnamed jobby is imho in no way as good as a 700watt Enermax/Tagon etc. You may say 'oh but it has the same power' yes but to go all cheesey on you for a moment 'power is nothing without control'. The output from a cheap psu at high current draws is almost always shaky and a very dirty signal. Not something you want anywhere near your nice shiny new mobo/graphics card etc. The evga gtx 295 needs 46amps (from their faq): GTX 295 models: Minimum of a 680 Watt power supply (Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 46 amps) An available 6 pin PCI-E and 8 pin PCI-E power connector Not that many psu's carry that kind of rating on a single +12v rail, this is why i was saying do check the ratings of things first. I should point out that i'm not against cheap and chearfull psu's i have many of them in myself in smaller systems that wont ever need that much current nor that clean a signal. However when i purchased my 295 my very good but slightly old now Enermax 620watt (which i paid something like £150 way back when) was slightly under powered and it did not have the 8pin connections nor enough grunt on a single +12v line. This is where booster psu's come in. IMHO a booster psu is for when your decent but older psu is more than enough to run the current system but has not quite got enough grunt to stretch to the brand new graphics card, thats the gap its aiming for. This FSP X3 and its bigger newer brother the x5 where ones i did consider although in the end i went for the Thermaltake Toughpower 650W as i had the drive bay space to spare and it would mean that i could easilly support running dual 295's in the future should i so wished. On amazon its going for about £60, that saved me quite a lot considdering buying a single psu that could run 2x295's and the system (1kw+) would be between £200-£300 and would leave me with my old enermax, which was still perfectly respectable, sitting around being wasted. Yes if i was building from scratch i would go to the extra expense but being as i was only upgrading it was not worth the extra money on top of the price of the card. Anyway enough with my rambling as i've kinda forgotten what i was going on about, OP good price, good find, heat added. Carry on people!

Good spot Crossbow. :) Found out this case was £17.58 on Amazon a couple of weeks ago. Extract from a forum.. "It's a good looking but simplistic case and it's easy to work with. The only downside is that the wires for the front panel usb and audio are too short, so I couldn't get it to reach on my asrock dualsata2" Looking for a cheap new case for the new build. Still got to decide on the Intel 5200 or AMD 7750 and m'board. Heat added.

For the price you can't go that far wrong. 2yr warranty might be an issue, but tbh no PSU I've had (even a cheap 700W no brand one) has lasted me a few years. Scan do have this on their TO offers quite often, but the price is usually at least £10 more, sometimes even £25 more then its current offer price. Hot ! Now how to order one and not let the mrs find out......

What brand of coffee do you drink? I suggest you change to Mellow Birds...... For the record I have built 3 high end SLI Quad Core systems in the last 18 months and for the first I decided to go for the Coolermaster M1000 because the boy I buy my components from gave me it at cost price as it was just out and I have used it in the other 2 systems as well as I have found it to be extremely stable and reliable. Ok, its £130 and a lot of people would consider a 1KW PSU overkill but the one thing you simply cannot skimp on in a modern gaming build is a PSU. When I finally do get round to building that X58, DDR3, i7, 4890/295 system for myself later in the year it will yet again have an M1000 PSU powering it all.

Don't listen to this system builder novice, the fact he uses amazon reviews as some sort of measuring stick is ridiculous. ( he probably owns that trust psu) get a pc power & cooling 420 watt for £39-99 or the corsair cx 400 for £42-99.Both near silent running and very high quality for their price. Much better warranty they send you a brand new sealed unit if anything goes wrong without quibbles. The above guy clearly doesn't value his customers if he uses crappy brands with crappy second rate warranty with poor efficiency. Cheap psu = run hot loud and wear out fast.

Couldn't agree more. I am a system builder of 12 and bit years now and Ive built well over a thousand PC's. In the late 90's and early 2000's it was commonplace for system builders to use stock power supplies. I think I've had about a 1% failure rate on stock power supplies and these have tended to be the more recent power supplies. The CiT range of cases tend to have noisy power supplies and I've had 2 failures with them, but the chassis themselves for a budget case are well made and I've used loads of them. Nowadays I usually point out to the customer the benefits of upgrading the power supply and they nearly always upgrade. The best power supply I've tested for the money is the Trust PowerMaster 520W PSU Low Noise Big Fan PW-5550. It's build quality is superb, includes SATA power and Molex connectors and best of all you can barely hear it, so much so that you don't think the fan is actually running. (See the Amazon reviews) Before everyone gets on the band wagon and tells me about "better" ones that cost more and how Trust are cr*p (their cheaper ones aren't too clever) - don't bother as I build PC's on a daily basis and my opinion is based on real life testing not one off home builds. I know there are better power supplies for the high end gaming machines but that's missing the point. Anyway, as far as the deal is concerned it's a good deal for the general public as the delivery is included. I think it's wrong to quote the Scan price as not everyone has free delivery. Voted hot.

Also, a cheap PSU will take out other components. It can explode for one thing, secondly it can overvolt and send a surge of electric through your motherboard and fry it and other components. Wow it can explode can it? dont want your PC to explode do we....

It will be fine if your going to run a very old and low powered machine. However, if you prefer silence or thinking about adding a graphics card in the future then stay clear. Also, a cheap PSU will take out other components. It can explode for one thing, secondly it can overvolt and send a surge of electric through your motherboard and fry it and other components. Also, maybe the reason quality PSU's have only came out in the last few years is due to increasing power demands?

Brake is what you do when you press the middle pedal on your car. Break is what happens when your PSU goes bang. Putting things into perspective I have built and owned many computers and always skimped on the PSU, I have never had a PSU fail. So whilst I accept it is more likely with a cheap PSU It doesn't happen often enough to really influence a purchase. I think people worry too much, live on the edge a bit more.

Was probably on TodayOnly at the time this was placed - so it's expired now... is still fairly cheap.

Join AVForums FFS, post 10 times (or maybe even less) and its FREE P&P. This IS a good deal even if the PSU is a pile of sh*t. I would like to see you find a case + keyboard + mouse combo for that much!

Hmmm, the amount of times I've heard this yet I have always used stock PSU's and not had any problems. I've been building PC's since 1996. This one I'm currently using was built in 2001 using a stock PSU in the case. It's still running fine and I have had no problems with it. Of course, I may just be lucky :-D

THANKS mate I ordered a computer off them for just under £800 (with a damaged case) and I still had to pay delivery but phoned up today and told them about the case and the free delivery and they said that they will refund me. :thumbsup:
