post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys

I'm quite new to the PC world and thanks to this site I've picked up some well-appreciated info thumbsupsmiley.png
I want to start building my own system here soon and have been doing my research, but I'm interested in your opinions within another
topic.
what do you guys think about:

Murderbox MKII

vs.

Digital Storm Aventum
http://www.digitalstormonline.com/comploadaventum.asp?id=674559&price=%248%2C576

Thanks! biggrin.gif

One of those is a case and the other is a complete system. Are you asking us to compare just the cases?

you realize :
$1200 for the base model of murderbox
seriously limited quantity
pretty sure you can't even buy just the aventum case

Anyways, money aside, if I could have my choice I would get the murderbox, although they are both gorgeous cases I know there has been a lot of design work put into the MKII

Taking into account the links provided in the OP I'm going to go ahead and assume money isn't really an issue here.

I would choose Murderbox MKII over the other all day. Much more classier look and you're owning a piece of history by buying one. On top of that, you can pick and choose your own components to put in it smile.gif

Well I'm trying to work with a budget of 3k as stated in another thread of mine. Link provided below:

http://www.overclock.net/t/1323148/amd-vs-intel-help/0_20#post_18516868

I've been doing some research and the Antec Lanboy Air MidTower has caught my eye. Mostly because of the mesh and suspenders.
But I'm still looking around for a good full tower, I might add a liquid system as well. Not sure yet but the feedback is always appreciated!
Thanks! thumbsupsmiley.png

So is a marble floor, but if you have money then you start to look at things another way.

SirRoostaBot525: With a 3k budget you can't afford the Aventum, and while you can afford the Murderbox II, it's a watercooling case and that might be a step too far for a first time pc-build.
