    @CHR1S - I would like that but £100'is quid is a bit too much for me, plus I already have a mobo and it wont fit that case. However, the Fractal Design Core 3000 Case are down to £49 from £62 on Ebuyer at the moment (only 9 left too!!!)so that is a contender.

    @LosOjos - Thanks for the recommendation. Again, looks like a very nice case!

    @Rawns - Pay the extra and go for a Define - I brought this one Fractal Design Define Mini Series Micro ATX Case - Black Pearl: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

    For a fair bit more than the current price and its an amazing case!

    Anything with glossy black plastic on it should be avoided. That Casecom case looks like the sort of cheap and nasty case you would find in Maplins.

    I reckon eBuyer have reduced the price of the Core 3000 because Fractal are releasing an updated version with USB 3.0 ports very soon.

    @Rawns did you decide on a case in the end?

    I haven't actually. That piece of rubbish I originally ordered is being collected today and should have a refund by the end of the week. Need to sit down and look through the thread and pick one!

    ...which I'll do now whilst I'm on lunch!!!

    I was looking at this one as im looking at building up a second rig for testing and stuff and thought it looked pretty good

    BitFenix Shinobi "Core" USB3.0 Gaming Case - Black [BFC-SNB-150-KKN1-SP]

    in my experience bitfenix stuff is really good

    Time to get googling reviews, then, both are good for the money so depends on your particular set of priorities - noise, cooling, cable layout etc.

    Will give you something to read in the quiet moments for the rest of this afternoon

    the Antec All Black 302 Three Hundred Two Case wins. I was going to go for the Fractual case but it does not have free delivery on Ebuyer, so I may as well put the postage cost towards the Antec.

    What I've got, getting a bit old now, but I like it still. Had three different generations of mobo in it.

    Thats a nice looking case @Rawns, might go for it rather than the Shinobi.
    Looks easy to work on the insides, and i especially like the bottom mount for the SSD

    I used to have that same case actually. Personally I wasn't a fan of it. I found the that airflow was pretty poor and it got really hot inside. It also lacked internal space for working on it. Currently using a Coolermaster HAF 922 which I would recommend.
