    Just spotted this case on Ebuyer

    I was looking at the cheap cases on ebuyer and just saw this

    http://www.ebuyer.com/product/172779
    .
    First stocks expected October 2009......

    The all new Casecom 6788 Black Mid Tower Case..... The first budget case to feature full black interior/exterior chassis and fully tool-less optical/hard drive bays....

    Features:

    * Black Mid Tower ATX Case
    * PSU mount is at the bottom of the case for better case airflow (PSU Not Included)
    * Fully black painted chassis. Interior and rear of case all black
    * 1x 120mm Blue LED Front Case Fan Included. Space for top mounted 120mm fan and rear 120mm fan
    * Fully Tool-less design for Hard Drives and Optical Drives
    * Pre-cut holes for watercooling installation
    * Side mounted hard drive bays for easy install and case tidyness
    * 4x 5.25" Bays, 2x external 3.5" Bays, 5x internal 3.5" Bays
    * Top mounted 2x USB2.0/Audio input/output
    * Mesh front panel for improved airflow
    * Compatible with ATX and MicroATX Motherboards
    * Compatible with standard ATX PSUs
    * Case Dimensions: Length 473mm, Width 190mm, Height 433.8mm
    For £25 and CaseCom that looks surpriseing good.

    Nice layout, hex fan grills, 120m fan mounts, black internals.
    Although it's probably only 0.6mm SGCC steel that is most common on cheap cases, rather than 0.9 SECC steel that is used on decent steel cases

    I'm tempted to get one just to see what it's like.

    EDIT: looks like there's some cable management holes in the motherboard tray as well, although at only 190mm wide there's probably not enought space behind the tray to run cables.

    The more I look at this the more it seems to tick every box for what I look for in a case, this is scary

    Re: Just spotted this case on Ebuyer

    OK as it's under £50, with 5day delivery it's £30 total.

    I don't really need another case but I've pre-ordered it anyway.

    Looks a sound case for the price. Will be interested to know what the build quality is like.

    Will you be posting a reader review?

    Knowing cheap cases like I do, I can bet it'll be pop riveted in.

    I'll be very interested in seeing how that compares to my Antec 300. Will be looking forward to a mini review. If you can do a few pics, even better !
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    Re: Just spotted this case on Ebuyer

    looks really good but I think its a bit too thin as my cooler only just fits in

    Also my psu has an intake fan on the bottom and nothing on the back would this be ok?

    Which i don't get, as rivets are more expensive per 100 than standard Hex bolts + nuts

    But i suppose rivets are easier than bolts and nuts

    This looks nice. Black interiors and decent amount of drive space. Wonder how good the steel will be? (Might be a rattler)

    Re: Just spotted this case on Ebuyer

    CaseCom and bottom-mounted PSU?
    So that would mean that the cheaper CaseCom PSUs aren't suitable for this case. I remember having to get an extension ATX power-cable to use a CaseCom PSU in an Antec A300.
    (I know CaseCom PSUs are very cheap but in this case the guy who's machine this was wanted to pay for a good case but only a so-so CaseCom 350W PSU - almost no load on that PSU though and it's still going strong.)

    It actually ticks all the boxes that I've been looking for in a case. Bring on the review Pob255, I eagerly await it!

    Re: Just spotted this case on Ebuyer

    First stocks expected October 2009......
    A while yet, but I has pre ordered

    Here my tick list I've had in my head since the Antec 900

    Mid tower
    Wide enough for 120mm fan based tower coolers
    Lower mounted PSU, the right way up with fan ven in the bottom
    Mesh front
    top fan slots
    90degree hard drive bay with rails or trays
    Mesh front panel
    Front switches and USB ports
    low cost (under £50)
    And a relative new addition, Black interia

    A couple of cases have come close, I almost got the cm690 but the USB ports are in a very bad place for me and the drive caddies will not execpt IDE hard drives (I have and still use a very solid performing 80gb IDE hard drive)
    And later discovered issues with the side panel fans

    I loved and still love the silverstone fortress but it's just too expensive for me.

    Both the Antec 400 and CM590 also came close but I much prefur a 90degree hard drive layout for easy quick access.

    While this case is listed as 120mm front and top they look like they can take 140mm and at the price this does seem a real bargin.

    But in a month or two we'll see . . .

    Re: Just spotted this case on Ebuyer

    Very nice find!
    Looking forward to the review to see how good it really is.

    It would be I just bought a chea and crappy Extra Vale case from eBuyer to house all of my defunct parts. Might need to get one of these now...

    Definately a nice find. Anything under £40 normally looks like its under £10.

    Hope build quality isnt sorely lacking
