Question This case any good?

Hey guys. What do u guys think about this Enermax case? It comes with the 1 side fan and I will have to purchase the front and rear fans. The $$ for this item is $80 (Cdn) = $65 (US). Good deal or not?

What is SGCC? That's the material, but what's it stand for? Other than that, looks good.

No idea man. Don't know much about cases. This case "looks" to have good cooling - especially near the Hard drives. Any opinions is much appreciated .

Another good case if you want to spend a bit more money is the aspire x-infinity looks so great and has space for 4 80mm fans and one spot for either a 80mm 92mm or 120mm looks great and has lots of room, has lights, has a window, blowhole, comes in like 6 colors. Mine is silver. heres a link to pics

This is the best cheap case I have ever seen, I have it and it is absolutely amazing. Comes with two great fans too!
The picture is old, it has a spot for a 120mm fan in the back.

Don't like any of those. The one pilot posted would be the only one I would think of buying but the x-infinity has more spots for fans and has the temp guage, and has a better set up side fan. It's placed so as to provide fresh air directly to the cpu so there is no need for "ducting" mods. It also has a removalbe mobo tray, a spot for a 120mm fan in the back and comes with 2 blue led fans decently quiet. My comp is pretty noisy cuz i added 3 more 80mm pctoys fans which are 3400rpm and make about 35db. But all in all i couldnt be happier with the case.
