Cheap case for modding

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,
I'm looking for a cheap case for modding, to see what my options are.
Give me suggestions, MUST be available in the UK.
The bigger the better to be honest and typically I prefer the power supply on the bottom. Nothing plastic either please.
This is just scouting for your expertise mainly.

Thanks,
Torched-Geek

Thanks man!

I've got a great case sitting in my shed ready for modding - it's a Chieftec Scorpio, hacked to bits but should be good for a basic chassis if I ever decide to mod it.

I would give it to you but its huge and shipping would kill me

Lian Li PC-7 is pretty good. It is a very plain looking case that can easily be disabled for painting. The side panels are plain, allowing you to cut your own windows. It is also very stylish, although it doesn't have the psu mounted on the bottom. It's around $90. I don't know where you guys purchase stuff overseas but here's the newegg link just to see it.
