Rocketfish.
Lian Li knock off from Best Buy.

On sale for $119.99
I paid $47.99 (nana2) :D

All hardware accounted for, not even a scratch. Nice.

It is. I'm really surprised at the build quality. All fans have a 3 to 4 pin adapter and rubber insulators for vibration, as do the hdd cages. Holds up to 8 hdds and the cages are removable, plenty of room for cable management.

I just need to cut out the extra metal over the dedicated 120m gfx card intake fan inlet, next to the I/O shield, and will most likely cut blowholes for 2 120s up top.

I didn't expect this for $47.

Open Box FTW! :D

Rocketfish is Lian-Li (they're made for BestBuy, for BB's store brand).

My first PC case was a Thermaltake. I bought it for looks. The first time I put together a system with a Lian-Li case, it was for a friend. The case was a pure joy to work with. Excellent build quality, easy to move around in, etc. I was jealous ever since.

I built a new system this past weekend, and I did so with a Lian-li case. You don't buy these for looks, you buy them for functionality.

Thanks steve - I'll be building the system towards the end of the week. If it keeps my temps in check it'll be a winner.

Sorry to take this thread a bit off topic but is it just the Americans that call aluminium Ah-Loo-mi-num?

Back on topic I like the case Grey If I was going for a new case now I would pick the same one.

Nice case Grey welcome to the Lian-Li club. You will be happy with the temps as I am sure of it. Take your time and get that wiring looking good.

Nice case grey! I used a chain saw on my last computer too! For some reason it never worked after that :)
