Rocketfish or CM690 - Page 2

post #11 of 28
CoolerMaster cases have fallen in quality and design since the Praetorian. Stick with the quality of a Lian Li (though it's been re-badged as a Rocketfish).

Indeed they have. They discovered this material called "plastic", and have been in love with it ever since

The rocketfish if you plan to mod it.

I look at mine and all I see is potential.

What do you like about either case, Bulldog22?

I'd list your likes and dislikes, and then prioritize according to your own standards. Only YOU can really answer a question like what you're asking, anyway.

Unless you make it as a matter of routine to do as what the in-crowd says...

I'd say Rocketfish if you have no size constraints. It's just too big for where I need it to be.
