    Would this case be able to hold a m-ATX board? It doesn't say so on the specs, but technically it should have more than enough room right?

    Yeah if you look at the motherboard tray it has multiple holes to support more than just ATX mobo's. Great case for just $60 shipped and $20 MIR.
    Kantastic says thanks.

    Awesome, thanks for the confirmation. I'm quite interested in this case to replace my generic Gateway. Looks good and seems like it has a lot to offer.

    Would an Antec 300 be better in this price range? Or any other case in general?

    Cooling and air flow aren't the most important factors since I won't even be OCing it heavily, just want it to look nice and be easy to work with.

    antec 300 is a very well built case, would rate it over any case at 50 price point.

    I have the A300 along with the A900, both of them without any mods suck for cable management.

    The air they move is mainly wasted due to all the cables and crap everywhere in the case....pretty poor design, no useful holes cut in the case = hard work.


    Here is one for $50:

    Not a bad case really, it will work for you I expect.


    But, you should push the budget a bit more and get something along these lines:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811103024

    It will move a shitload of air and be easier to work on than the Antec 300...win win in my book. :)





    Personally, I'd pick this one for a budget banger as the case is one of the best under $100:

    What a pity... looks like I won't be getting that Phantom. I'm not really picky about how the inside of my case looks though, so I'll still consider it. The CM690 is a little out of my budget, as my computer is not that good and it doesn't offer free shipping.

    That Godspeed One is very interesting, thought it doesn't offer cable management and the motherboard tray is not removable. The Phantom was a Shell Shocker, the price is jacked up by $40 now so I won't be wanting that.

    Having a mobo tray that slides out in the sub-$60 market is very unlikely.

    The XClio case is a solid one, it has more cable management than the Antec 300 as with the A300 you have the PSU at the bottom and most cables aren't long enough to reach up the back of the board (no holes cut anyway!) and over the top (once again no hole there either).

    I would buy the XClio for the money, it offers great cooling and is pretty flexible, seems to be a good buy and take into account the free shipping. :toast:
