Default Any thoughts on this case?

Anyone have this case? pros/cons?

Newegg.com - RAIDMAX ICEBERG ATX-012WB Black 3mm Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail

I can't even find it on the manufacturer's website.

good


only hiccup...would be if you wanted to get some type of 3.5 ext bay thing...and then just need to convert one of the other bays...that's if that was a concern

seems to be older discontinued model perhaps

Don't need a 3.5 external bay... haven't used a floppy in years... could possibly have a card reader at some point but easily can find one's that converts or uses 5.25 bay

discontinued? newegg.com lists it as a "new arrival" hmmmm.

Thats a lot of money for a mid tower case made by raidmax...

Take a look at the Gigabyte Aurora 570.

I have to agree with aspire.comptech, although Raidmax makes some decent cases, I don't think they make "144 dollars" decent cases. You can get like, you know, a real name brand for that money. I'm not saying Raidmax is generic by any means, but I'm talking you could have a Coolermaster or Thermaltake and similar for that price.

I kinda agree...if it were.. say just under $100, I could justify the cost.... too bad I can't see these things in person...I would immediately reject/accept models based on price/quality/sex appeal, etc.
