Default Antec Skeleton

does anyone have any opinions or first hand experience with one of these chasis?

since im in the market for a new case, im exploring all options,

from modding one out of wood (would be fun, and hard)
to just buying a plain "efficiant" cooling case.

antec 900 would be a safe go, but i think i would want something different for a change.

so any first hand knowledge of the antec skeleton would be fantastic.

The Skeleton is apparently cheap plastic and a rip off. Get a regular case that you can trust like an Antec 900, 300, p182, 1200, or a CM 690 or whatever you like.

hey thanks for that info there about the cheap plastic.

i really like the nvidia version of the CM 690
it looks like a fantastic case and easy on the wallet.

I think it's more for a testbed anyway.

Towards the bottom of that thread then the next few pages is hands on experience with the skeleton by a very knowledgeable and experienced techy.
