A Thousand Dollar Case????? OMG

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I was online looking for a new case for one of my customers. When i come across a Cooler Master CSX, for $1,000.00.

Who would actually pay $1,000.00 for a case???

Heres the link:

Been posted, and I'd rather take a armor case then that case TBH. Even if that case was the same price as the armor.

That thing is UGLY!

I think there's something wrong with that case cuz it looks like the side panel window is like.. obstructing the air of the four 120mm fans. It looks just like a stacker but with a paint job.. and that was one heck of an expensive paint job..

It isn't $1000. It is only $999.99.

Newegg only has 2 of them as well.

Nvidias most expensive card (8800 Ultra) isn't even THAT expensive. Why would the manufacturer sell these cases at that price??

I thought Nvidia has more expensive cards.. The Quadros. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814133189

like said above, doesnt seem like the fans would do much if theres no place to suck air from...

And no case it worth over $300

Sorry your right AznBond, let me rephrase that. It is more expensive than the most current expensive 8 series.

3 words: Waste, Of, Money.

maybe the case is worth a couple-three hundred bux, and maybe a 200 dolar paintjob so 500, maybe 600, MAX, not 1k. Plus you could have just as good a looking a case using vinyl appliques rather than an expensive paint job...

I wouldn't pay that much for it, but it is a nice case. I'm one of the old school hot rodders that like flames, though.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks as if there is a large vent in the bottom of the case, which makes more sense than air coming in from the front to me. However that fan rack on the side makes absolutely no sense. But it does come with a t-shirt
