    Got to be honest I was considering this case but front glass put me off. Went for this one instead: https://www.scan.co.uk/products/game...sb-30-atx-eatx.

    It has a mesh front and vertical GPU mount for a few less pounds. Seems like a bit of a bargain currently.

    It was well reviewed on youtube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3CS9UbKafn4&t=336s

    Gamemax stun me with with in my opinion the best value cases out there. I have one of their "Silent " cases , virtually the same as Fractile Define. main PC now seated in a Gamemax "Sapphire " which I saw reviewed at Kitguru @ £128.00 and found at CCL for £54.00 , one hell of a case for the money. 1st brand I look at now for value and features.

    GameMax 3rd-ed. Not the highest quality, but also not bad either. But the value for money is amazing - GameMax Aurora is what I've used, at the time, £44 delivered from CCL (£40 for the case). 5mm Glass Tempered side panel, 3x aRGB fans and an 8-way fan controller included as well.

    The fans and controller alone would set you back £30-40 minimum with any other brand. So basically the case can be considered free...

    If you want a little more refinement, I'd also recommend the Phanteks P350X and Phanteks P300A, both have fantastic airflow, the P350X has built in RGB lighting (not fans). But will both need additional fans in addition to the cost of the cases, so push the price higher.

    That GameMax F15M Mesh looks very nice though.

    As is typical, putting aesthetics before function.
    At that price point there shouldn't be RGB and tempered glass if you can't get the rest of it right first.
    Make a decent case, then add glass and RGB.
    Don't set a budget, and then cut down the case until RGB and glass fit into that.

    I really wish case companies would get away from this fascination with glass cases and go back to a nice simple solid all metal case with good airflow. Glass panels are completely pointless if you have no interest in showing off your pc insides and/or rgb, not to mention in my case the glass panel is on the side I don't see.

    Currently looking into new cases and I'm having more issues finding a metal side panel on a case than I am trying to find one to fit in the space where the case will go.
