    Good case for £30?

    Was reading through the new CustomPC mag and saw
    this case .



    Now with a 120mm fan in and out and being only £30 and having a fan controller for them too, do you think this would be a good buy

    Thanks in advance

    p.s. This is my currnet case


    Cooling is great with all the modding. Howeverwith the side effect of this 5 80mm (all quietish) fans and one 120mm fan in the side I'm looking for something a bit quieter but cheap and thought this looked ideal

    Well with 2 120mm's in there is would be on the cooler side of things Just make sure you get a couple of low noise fans papst are very good.

    as it would happen I got an NF7-s and it fits fine. Only issued I've had is that with a 92mm fan on my slk947-u it comes a bit close to the psu. I'll take some pics in the morning to show you

    The major reason I went for this case is the two 120mm fans front and back. Only case I've found that in costs a lot more than £30.

    cool thanks man
    also is the fan controller (on the front left of the case), a problem if this case is underneath a desk is it hard to store? if u know what i mean?
    im considering this instead of a lian li pc60 do u think it is a better deal?

    just looked at malpin and that lian li pc-002 does look quite good, but it says while stock last, is it gonna be at that price in say 4 months?

    I went to the actual shop to get it. They had quiet a few in and it seems popular becuase the display one had gone too.
