Interesting idea

I have to wonder how long it will take case manufacturers to discover that painting the insides of a PC case (especially one with windows) a colour apart from grey-drab is entirely acceptable, nay, desirable?

The other thing I did not like is the tool less setup is a little ugly through the window. I might make a panel from plexi and paint it to cover it up....

For the price, it's a good deal. Thanks for the review, Samuknow!

Thanks...

It is a lot nicer that you would think for that price. It is VERY solid. Not the flimsy thin crap that is out there.

Is it safe to say that the included power supply should be tossed?

The PSU is running a 754 board and cpu now I would not push my luck and put a high dollar rig in there. It actually has a little weight to it. Not that that is the tell all for quality, but it is better than those 4 ounce jobs you usually end up with.

I am not doing this for me....It is all for the better of AOA...The more reviews of NEW stuff, the more hits we get.
