    Should I get this case? Opinions needed!

    Im "negotiating" on EBAY to buy a COOLERMASTER WAVEMASTER silver case for £70 inc shipping. Its used, and he says the outside is fine but the inside has some scratches from drive rails?

    Also, he claims it comes with all retail products.

    Should I buy it?

    Thanks.

    Hey Noni, I may be selling my own when I finally complete my new PC. Same case, same colour. Won't be for a couple of weeks yet though? :

    What's the cooling like? Can't see how you get air intake. TBH I'm not keen on front doors either, but I suppose it depends on how often you have to put Optical media in. 80mm fans. Front/top ports?

    Looks over functionality IMO.

    Actually, its the same as a LIAN LI PC60 or a ATC.

    It has a blowhole, 2 front intakes and one exhaust. Pair it up with a Hiper Type R (120mm FAN exhaust) and you have great airflow.

    I hate doors, but the on and off button is on the front so I dont mind.

    Tobeman, how much will you be selling yours for?

    Thanks.

    The door helps a bit for noise I've found, I rarely ever insert optical media, and power/reset switches are on the front rather than behid the door. The front IO ports are behind a handy flap at the top of the case, and there are mods available if you don't use those, to add an exhaust there.

    No idea how much I'd sell it for, absolutely great condition though, don't think theres a single mark on it.

    It might be worth considering the Antec P160 or P180, due to their use of 120mm fans if airflow is important. The placement of the front ports of the P160 is kinda handy aswell

    i think its worth considering the akasa eclipse as its a very well designed case, ive found with the shaped cases they are normally stupidly designed well the theremaltake version is

    Are the intakes at the bottom of the case? Can't see any intakes at the front.

    Yes, there are two, a complete pain in the arse to get to however, probably worth replacing for quieter ones too.
