Alienware Case's - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Not only that, but a few years ago there was a case manufacturere who made Alien-esque cases. They looked similar to the Alienware cases, but weren't "licensed" replicas or whatever. I wish I remembered who it was though, only saw the cases at Fry's (Outpost). Haven't been in there in a few years now, and it feels very, very strange....

People aren't going to be dropping the damn thing; IMO they look cool and I wouldn't mind having one. They weren't all going for $300 or so, there was one for about $30. I think the $300 one came with a PSU.

Just ask pandapimp, the case on his Alienware Aurora 7700 is pretty darn bad. The cooling down right sucks, 80mm intake and 120mm exhaust, big deal. On top of that the fans are moderate air flow but are noisy. Also the case is not only NOT tool-less, you need a key to get inside it and he lost his LOL so if you do that (and they come locked) you're really screwed. Also its by far the heaviest case EVER due to being pure steel. I kinda like the look though, a long time ago I called Alienware and asked if they would consider selling the cases (either retail or just 1 to me) and I got to talk to someone pretty high up (dont remember who ) and he gave me a definitive NO....though he did say they were considering bringing back those super cool chameleon paint jobs.


BTW I also remember the days of the Chieftec cases back then I hadn't even heard of AMD! LOLLORS!
