[HWI] 11 computer cases tested, from £70 - £110 - Page 2

Lol. To be honest the cases we used back in the old days were equally hideous. Just they were hideous mostly on the inside biggrin.gif

What'd they do to their RV03 to make them think it's loud? I hope they realize there's a fan controller built into the top panel that makes the case nearly silent. rolleyes.gif

the cheap build quality of most modern cases is what bugs me.
I have an old Antec case from the early 2000's that is much better built than most $100-200 cases that are out today, and I've tried 4 cases in the last 6 months, the only one I wanted but never tried was the Corsair 800D, but that price is a bit out of my range for a case.

I finally gave up on traditional cases and ordered me a quality test bench made in Italy (dimastech) vs most cases that are made in china, still giving it some time before I drop the judgement hammer, but it seems to be working well so far. and its only $150, its not that far off this price range, and its watercooling friendly, powder-coated, and can get it in just about any custom color you want. my quality fans make it pretty quiet, and it looks quite nice after sleeving some cables and painting my PSU to match everything else. Its not perfect, and test benches have their own problems, but IMO, much better quality bang for the buck.
