It's Made by Ahanix, i paid $100 for it but i found out another place sells it for $29.99 plus shipping.
http://ahanix.com
http://dealsonic.com/ahanix.html
I dont think they carry it anymore.. It is called the Platinum Xp,
you could do a search to see who might have it. ALSO Check out HTTP://xpcgear.com for some cool case deals


If u notice it has stealth cd rom drive covers, looks and works really nice...

It has LCD Temp monitor too in the front, and also has turbo button

but back to the question about the buttons........

Anyone else know?



P.S. http://www.colorcase.com/10275.html $40 for the case no window tho

http://www.axiontech.com/prdt.php?item=48546 $27 dollars not sure if it has the window, i think u can request a lower price tho....

you could pick up the case used for like that same price it would cost for a new one in any electronics store...about 5 bucks. junk the darned case afterward, use it for a planter, drop it from a high bridge. There's your button. this isn't rocket science.......i'm sorry, that was rude of me. i'll drop it now....
