In my opinion it would have looked much nicer if they left the front flat the indent just don't look right to me, but all in all an alright budget case, A Nice review Gary.

i know it's a budget case and all but i really dont like that shape. it would've been much nicer if it was a box shape imo.

The white doesn't really help it. On the plus side, it has better cable management then most of the cases in that price point and it'll be better built. Just need to see it in black before I'd use it over something like the K280 from coolermaster.

Really not liking the look of this case. For the money though, it's not to bad I suppose.

Not my cup of tea, but for 35 quid it seems excellent value for money.

Personally though, I think I'd save up a bit more and get the FD Arc Midi v2 or even the Core 3000.

What I like most about it is that it's stunningly ugly. I'd love to pack a pocket rocket in there with a GTX 670 and have the last laugh.

I have a Core 2 Wolfdale rig sitting about somewhere and I think once I can afford a GPU for it I will pick up one of these and build a fragbox with it.

Try reviewing some casecom cases at the £30 mark, toolless drive bays, behind motherboard cable management, lots of ventilation I'd say something like the K5-9388 (they don't seem to do names) would be better than this.
