Default Re: I Finally Found My Case To Get!!

Just read a little review at techspot.

http://techreport.com/articles.x/19638/1

Looks like a really nice case. Having built in dust filters is something I wish more cases had. Basically has most of the things that I'd look for in a case. Only thing is I'd have to put a window in it. (Hopefully they will sell a windowed side panel if the case sells well)

I would definately be interested in a panel with a mesh/honeycomb type of window.

The 600T is almost identical to the CM Storm Sniper Black Edition minus the mesh panal, in function and shape. I like the smoother lines of the 600T more.

That said, I can get a Storm Sniper for only $90 plus $2 shipping.

I was just about to post that this is essentially a Sniper that's more expensive and has worse airflow (than the black edition anyway). Too expensive in my opinion.

nice case for the price point, i wonder if they addressed all the flaws with their first case.

still made of steel and now wrapped in more plastic

I'm not a very big fan of plastic either. Seems that a lot case I find have so many great features, but then they implement plastic trim or molding that looks kind of cheap.

The guy in the video says that while it is plastic, it's done very well. I just wish I lived close to a Frys. They always carry most of the popular cases, and it's always nice to see what they look like in person.

trip to frys is what prevented me from buying a cosmos, raven and that old corsair case.

Its easy to notice flaws in design when you can see the case up close.

I might go to fry's over the weekend and most some detailed pictures.

Always but always buy a good case right off then you never have to spend money and more money on cases, just spend the money the first time and get a good one nobody but nobody has ever regretted it. It may seem hard if money is limited but mow lawns, wax you dads car do what ever you can to get the money. Never kiss a fat chick for money it's just not worth the nightmares.

my 2 cents.

very true, went through few cases that i regret buying.

1) Original Stacker 830 with the patented CoolerMaster crooked motherboard tray, most original Stacker 830 suffered from it.

2) then the Cooler Master ATSC-840, with painted front panel, that paint was rubbing off.

All this because I wanted to save few bucks.

That problem though was found to only be you for some odd reason. I remember that thread and various other people with the same case didn't have that issue.

at the microcenter in westmond, there were 2 cases(mine that I returned, and second in their stock) that had the same issue. there could be more. even without that issue the ATCS-840 was not ideal. It was Aluminum yet heavy. My Lian-Li is same size also made of aluminum, yet lighter, sturdier and better constructed.

I would never buy a Coolermaster case again. The stacker 832 i had was very rattly...the mesh panels had a tendancy to make noises when the fans were on 100% and as Nekro said the motherboard tray used to be a pain in the ass for removing. Considering its size it wasnt very solid and after a week it turned into a eyesore to look at.

Corsair, Lian LI and Silverstone all the way.
