What are Casecome Micro-ATX cases like? (I don't trust user reviews on websites)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm soon to (possibly) build a small PC for my aunts, and it's a budget PC build mainly just for Internet browsing. All I need to know is does anyone have any experience with this case: http://www.ebuyer.com/265748-casecom-cm-431-shiny-black-microatx-case-cm-431 which they like the look of.

It's just that it seems to be a deal which is too good to be true. What appears to be a half-decent micro-ATX case for only £18. It looks like it can fit a couple of optical drives and a hard drive in there as the information says but I want to be absolutely sure, I don't want to put out a bad image in my builds. Also, some of the information on the page is not correct (e.g. it says the front fan is 8cm and the back is 12cm but it's the other way around, according to Casecom's website).

Any feed back or recommendations on other Micro-ATX cases would be appreciated too, thanks. smile.gif

Includes 80mm blue LED front fan

it's not promising when this was listed as one of the "features" of the case smile.gif

I wouldn't recommend getting it since any case that is still using 80mm fan is at least a 10 year old or older design.... airflow pattern and overall construction wouldn't be up to today's thermal requirements.

According to the Casecom website that's incorrect, the front fan is 120mm and it's the back fan which is 80mm. But thanks for that bit of information, I assumed the 80mm was just because of the size of the case.

Bear in mind this computer won't be used for gaming or anything demanding. They'll just be browsing the Internet. Fantastic airflow isn't necessary.

EDIT-

Looking at it again, it appears to be able to take a 92mm fan in the back.
