Where can I buy an Acer Aspire Predator (Case only)? - Page 3

post #21 of 24
I don't care what the other guys are saying but that case looks AWESOME. If you find one please tell me where and for how much? xD

EDIT: I just read the reviews about it causing fires and getting recalled. I changed my mind.

Go buy the NZXT Phantom if you want a badass looking case, it comes with a free fan controller too

I have done a few builds for customers with them and they are really nothing special. I would get one myself if the price was right because I always wanted to do an all-aluminum case with camo anodizing and either Lian-Li or Silverstone would be the best options for that.

I just never recommend them to clients because I would rather put the money into higher performing components. Don't get me wrong, there are many people who would settle for a crappy rig from 3 years ago just so they can sport it all in an expensive case. I just don't know any real hardware enthusiasts that would.teaching.gif

This, so bland. On another note, if your a modder it does have a sliver of hope to be nice. The only thing I admire about lian is their integrated GPU support bracket. And even that's ugly, it's just a functional part of the case.

You've owned that Predator case?


Hey bud, about the fire thing with the wires. You can get a crimping tool, some pins (molex, eps etc.) and redo the wires. What's stopping you from making something great out of something that wasn't?

What's up with everyone ditching projects as soon they see a hurdle? rolleyes.gif



EDIT:

Ohh common...
Quote:
The models affected are the ASG7200 and the ASG7700 that were sold between May and December of 2008. If you purchased your Acer Predator during this time frame, contact Acer for a free repair of the problem. Only 215 units are suspected to be affected, but it’s still a hazard gamers should know about.

So 215 units out of how many?

And it's just the wire insulation, just redo the wires, or change the components. You'll be modding it anyhow... DO IT! biggrin.gif
