What's the name of that super high-end computer case from Asia?

post #1 of 12

It has a metallic red color and is very expensive and rare to find in the USA.

Does anyone know which one I am talking about?

Are you talking about Windy Computer cases from Japan?

Does anyone here know how Windy cases compare to Case Labs cases?

They are a bit overpriced for what they offer

Its almost an apples to oranges comparison... I have seen a caselab case in person and thinks its pretty well built but I wouldnt think to compare it to windy case. I would more think to compare it to a mountainmods case then anything else.

The fit and finish on a windy case is nice from what I have seen online but they do tendy to be pricey due to the rarity and what you actually get for it...I would love a windy case but for the same price I would go with another case.

How does one obtain a Windy case and which model is best for water-cooling?

They aren't really built with water cooling in mind, really... Abee's larger cases are better for that, they even include water-proof fans. However Abee is even harder to get than WiNDy; you have to own or be employed by a retail chain to order any if you aren't in Japan, and you have to do it in bulk, and if you don't own the chain your boss has to sign off on it.

Worth it? That's a matter of opinion. The cases large enough for a decent custom liquid loop are the same money as higher-end Case Labs cases, and that's BEFORE working in the cost of getting it to your doorstep from Japan.
