    Decent case for £25?

    Anyone else heard or seen this case before - CIT 1003 Gaming Case

    Aside from looking quite decent, screwless chassis and the 140mm fan - I can't seem to find any reviews or further information about it.

    It seemed like quite a budget case being under £25 - Just wondering if anyone has had any experience with one?

    The Akasa Zen also is good and comes with two 120mm fans already:

    Those Coolermaster cases are excellent. I have one in my second (i.e. my wife's ) PC. Mine is in a Antec NSK-3480 which is a lot better quality but for the price of the Coolermaster they are excellent. Put in a quiet PSU like a Corsair/Seasonic and some Nexus 120mm fans and it's whisper quiet.

    Having said that my NSK-3480 came with a very good PSU for £70. Once you factor in a decent 50 quid PSU with the Coolermaster case you are spending the same sort of money and the Antec is definitely better quality.

    Looks pretty decent for the price imo.
