Beenie though.

At that price I think they mean 300watts of heat from that
cheap-ass PS. I'd be scared to put anything in that case...IMHO

Beware of thin gauge metal, poorly fitted joints, innaccurate positions for holes/cutouts/support-post-holes. Cheap cases usually are cheap for a reason. Not to say you can't get a bargain, but be skeptical.

I used the case to build a duron system, works fine, everything lines up, its wide, so fitting a heater core in it would be easy. as far as HSF goes, each motherboard has a different location for the cpu, some are behind the psu, some are not. the duron w/ volcano 2 didn't seem to mind the fit.

Is it just me, or do they charge you for hd/floppy mounting screws?

It'd be good for a 'just heatsink' via C3 kidna setup but idunno if it'd work well for you water cooling geeks... Im running a case with a similar design (as far as the placement of the PSU goes) and for a JUST heatsink setup the PSU with a fan on the side of the PSU cover (making it hover RIGHT above the CPU) it works out rather well but I wasen't aware of the PSU placement until i received the case... it just BARELY made it.


The machine im running in it is also a 233 Pentium for a media server aswell so im not as picky. The guys that posted here i'd have to agree with, cheap purchases (in most cases) leaves you with cheap junk but if the project your investing in is a ghetto/minimal spec system then i don't see any problem with it. Ghetto meaning "i don't care what it looks like, jsut give me a damn box to sheild the system".

Thanks for posting tho, definetly cool to see peeps sharin the info

-Ben.
