The story of my POS Case....

I've ALWAYS been behind in technology when it comes to computers,BUT my adventure starts off in the year 2000........

I just recently graduated high school and was going to college. Destiny's Child, N'sync, Creed, and other similar bands were stinking up MTV. I was on my way to college, big man on campus, planning to take over the world. As a last parting gift my dad said something would be in the mail for me the following week of the first week of classes. First week goes buy, don't remember any classes cause of course I was too busy "babe watching"....

Monday morning comes along and I get a invoice in my mailbox saying to get a package from our mail room. Super pumped, first package! Low and behold.... IT'S A COMPUTER! Not just any computer... ohhhhh noo... it's a Intel Pentium 4 Processor 1.6GHZ! And that my friends, is when I got my first and only up-to-date computer....

Fast forward to today....

Today, the case is still the same... but I buy all my parts used cause I'm currently going to school, again for a different degree. I recently I upgraded, recently meaning, a year ago in my terms. BUT then disaster struck. My appendix blew and so there went all the money for the other parts that I needed to buy cause I need to pay for monthly medical expenses ...

So as of right now, why I need a new case....

1.) Feet missing making it unstable (I think I know where it is, hence why I haven't ripped off the other feet) - Have been missing for 8'ish months.

2.) The only fan besides CPU and GPU won't work. Yes I could get a new fan, but I've been wanting a new case. So my current fan is a small personal fan, which is loud!

3.) HDDs jammed together too close making them heat up. Had to remove the floopy drive to make room, so now I have an dust port in front of my computer.

4.) Accidentally kicked the side of my computer since it was on the ground cause I need a fan to cool it cause it gets too hot and don't want a fan next to me and now the door won't fit.

5.) Been saving up for new CD/DVD burners cause right now, my board doesn't support IDE. Yes that is right, your eyes aren't messing with you, that is a 4x4x20 cd burner!

6.) Back ports have almost all fallen off and allows dust to just rush in since this computer normally sits on the floor. And the openings get caught on things and bend making cards not sit flush up against the case.

This is what I'd do to my current case, if I won!

not as bad as some others but i have a long way to go.

crappy antec 300 i got from a friend recently. top fan doesn't work and the hard drive cage has been ripped out for some reason. the 5.25" bay is warped as a result, and i don't have anywhere to mount my hard drive. plus there's practically no cable management.

I was going to post pics of mine for entry, but after seeing folks that don't even have a case I've decided not to. I hope someone that is caseless gets it.

Great contest OP.

I have all this sexy hardware.... and the Antec 300.... does not fit 12" + long Graphics cards ='[.... i tried cutting it, but even after painting looks like poop... so here is my rig now

I could use my Antec 300 case to replace the stupid 1998 case by some Dead company on my Pentium 4 rig

Alienware case I've been using for quite a while now, in my hand is the compartment that covers the drive bay
Its broken off completely, some of the vents on the case are all gone which makes it a dust magnet (thats the silver area)
Sorry for quality rolleyes.gif
Awesome freebie smile.gif

This in my POS case, falling apart, missing a side panel, none of the front jacks work. And as you can see, aside from the missing side panel, there are many other openings, so it is virtually impossible to keep dust out.

I just noticed more reasons why I need an upgrade. Tried to open the back panel to install a new SSD I just got...thing was sealed shut after my cable management adventure. Cable managing in this case forces me to put a bunch of cables in front of the intake fan, so it leads to higher temps which is always a bummer. A lot of issues really, but none compared to those who don't have issues because they have no case rolleyes.gif. Best of luck to everyone smile.gif

I actually threw away my NZXT gamma, because it just wasn't good >_> and now i have an NZXT whisper, and it just traps in heat, barely any ventilation.
