A student video editor needed a bit more than a 2012 mac to do his projects on. A group of friends were able to tip in ~$20 each and we were able to buy the graphics card, case and network card. The rest of the parts were second-hand parts from mostly me and some others.
Did some custom spray paintings here and there and got everyone to sign their names on the acrylic panel as he can still carry that around when he no longer needs the case anymore. in total, we spent just under $300AUD.
Definitely one of the favourite builds/mod I've done so far.
Been very decent over many builds. Cheaper than most but I believe it does a fine job. Part given by another friend (andy)
A really Really good case for its price. You have the aesthetics and shape of a mid-range case for a small amount of money. Some edges are a bit sharp but you can't expect too much from the case. Wish it had an ssd mount on the front shroud (although you can easily do that yourself). Back didn't give much room but the curved back panel compensated for it. Overall, not too shabby
