That elite 330 is actually a pretty decent case.

I have it. Its ok. But if you are making even a semi powerful machine you will want a bigger case. With my 4850 and its acellero and the Core contact freezer there is hardly any room left inside.

I recently built a fairly budget machine into one and I was really impressed. I think it might be the first case i've seen with toolless installation that is actually easier than just using screws. Probably not the best case for your huge heatsinks though

Hmmm...
Instead of killing the machine, donating is a better idea.
Killing it will make it of no use to anyone, at least the unprivileged will make some use of it!


Thanks for this.
Will finalize & settle down with this one or something in the same sect.

To be precise, 8 days back.

Why are most of you asking me the same thing?
