Need Help Identifying Unknown Case

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I got this case from a friend, and he was unable to get a front panel for it. It's a pretty nice case, and I'd like to figure out what it is so I can try to find a front panel. I imagine there are several of these floating about somewhere, so hopefully somebody here will be able to ID it for me. Here are a few pics of the case (note that I applied the black paint to the interior of the case and put on the case feet myself):



The two clips in the back that hold the panel in place will hopefully make IDing the case easier. I'm pretty sure I've seen Thermaltake use similar clips, but I don't think this case is a Tt.



Might be a little tough to see with all the black paint and a terrible cell phone cam. Notice that the hard drive bays are parallel to the front of the case. There are still a couple screwless 5.25" drive bay devices left, but they might be a little difficult to see.




If anybody needs a little more info, I'd be happy to provide what I can. I'd really appreciate it if somebody could help me figure out which case this is, and if someone knows where I could get a front panel for it, that'd be even better.

I believe that's a silverstone case. They produced those back in 2008.

Thanks, I'll check Google images and see if I can find a Silverstone that looks like this one.

EDIT: No luck so far... every Silverstone case I've seen so far that looks similar has a bottom-mount PSU.

I am not sure, but it looks to be a HAF X from the side.

I've noticed some similarities to that and a few other Cooler Master cases. I had someone else tell me they're pretty sure it's an Inwin case judging just from the clips on the side panel and the screwless drive bay fasteners. I haven't had any luck finding an Inwin case that matches up either, though.

Update: I'm having no luck figuring out exactly which case this one is, but I did get an idea. My friend had a front panel for a Coolermaster Centurion 5 which randomly got tossed into a guy's junk pile and doesn't have a case to go with it. I figure since I can't use a front panel for a case that doesn't exist, and I can't use the unidentified case in the pics above without a front panel, I'm going to (attempt to) make the Centurion front panel fit. Although the drive bays aren't the same configuration, the height and width dimensions are extremely close between the panel and the case, so I'm going to try and mod it to fit. My plan is to remove everything but the outer frame and the bottom 3.5" expansion slot of the front panel, order some modder's mesh and make a fully mesh front panel, use a spare 3.5" drive bay cover to mount my power and reset buttons, LEDs, and (if there's room) USB and audio ports, and see if I can make it look clean. If anybody's interested I could snap some pics and, if I'm successful, make a mod log of it.

Are there any markings on the bottom?

Much appreciated. I'll try searching for an Ultra that matches mine.
