Case: Love it or hate it

Post by sorethumbs » Tue Jun 28, 2011 9:44 am

I am replacing my mini itx board and case, I bought this case to house a gigabyte matx board.

The missus is somewhat concerned at the larger size case being in the bedroom

I like it but do you???

Looks like an 80s midi system.

If I put that in my bedroom my wife would quite literally throw it out the window.

I like it, BUT not as something I would want under my tellebox. I prefer more traditional 430mm wide AV looking kit! :)

it certainly looks av equipment-y, but I agree it may be a touch big. Maybe you can hide it in a cupboard out something...

I like it, It totally depends on how a person likes to setup and display their components. I would consider it for a new box

I think love or hate is a difficult question, it's certainly........

...... different, unique, interesting, thought provoking, a talking point.

:D

Edit:

Broken links = my bad :oops:

Looks alright to me. Wouldn't be my first choice but I don't think its hideous.
