the one you picked looks plastic (i know its probably not but it "looks") and kinda resembles a kiddie toy (or transformer)--

a case is a case, you want it to work better you mod it......wether you spend 20.00 or 200.00 it's all the same sheet metal or plastic.

also custom fabrication to that extent doesn't qualify.... you can't buy that anywhere.......

hehe actually they sell those cases of the plane and stuff retail- go check out xoxide.com - they're not fabricated nor are they the work of some serious modder ^_^

the case you picked is in the 100 dollar range; i think for the pice, you could go other directions in terms of quality- if you want to just mod a case, you can get a cheap one and do your own mods but certainly not for a 100 bucks..

for the price:

if i didnt have a nice PSU, i'd get a nice antec because they make high quality aluminum cases (heat dissipation is better) that come with high quality power supplies

if i did have a nice psu, i'd get a Lian Li, Cooler Master, and heck, i'd still get a nice antec... they have nicer cases with removable mobo trays, they pay attention to details, and some even have noise silencing features... the Lian LI- has sound insulating foam and other great features to boot.... i would not want a poory made plastic case--

ok i'll keep that one in mind. sorry if i seem like a pain in the ass about this but i'm sure you all understand where i am coming from. we have to look at our comps everyday and it would be nice if we could smile when we did.

i totally agree. if you like the way that first 'diablo' case looks, then that's all that matters! at least when it comes to asthetics...

how the inside is laid-out and what fan options you have is another matter. i'd have to see all of that before suggesting any case.

just wish you gave us a link or at least a manufacturer so i could check it out further. :)

i think it looks like something out of a kinda egg, or a retro 80's transformer.

is it just me, or is it really hard to find a good, inexpensive case that has decent cooling options these days? I mean, there are so many cases out there right now that only have one or two fans...

it's true. and sort of silly when you consider that providing decent cooling options is merely a matter of having the appropriate holes cut out. i mean, instead of having your machine stamp one 80mm fan hole in the back, have it stamp two or a 92 or 120mm.
:confused:

but with that being said, you're probably better off buying a cheap case that has room on the back to cut your own holes. ;)

You know, that would make a decent project. Now that would be some serious modding! I can see it now; a 3 foot tall Optimus Prime...

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
