Re: first i7 build... is this decent
Usually I never suggest a different case, but...
In this case (no pun attended), I'm going to.
I had a customer choose this case, first off lets start by saying there was a short in the wire on the fan, and it caught on fire, almost ruining everything in the build.
The case is made of cheap plastic, and it feels like its going to fall apart.
I wouldn't ever suggest it, from the couple times I've had to build in it.
Also, the customer service when I tried to get the case RMA'd was terrible through XCLIO.
