I need a case expert to find the case model i currently have?

HI, i need help to find my current case model
its from a prebuilt computer made around 2000-2005, that prebuilt computer had a 1.6 dual core pentinum, 1gb of ram, win xp and the rest i dont remember
the case has 2x usb 2.0 at the front and one mic input and speaker input, it is black one top, the sides and the front: https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?ui=2&ik=1a269ac703&view=att&th=147750bc07356198&attid=0.1&disp=safe&realattid=9953b857f35bd3b9_0.1&zw

  1. Do you know the brand? I can't help with this but if you can find that, any serial numbers on the inside or outside or logos it might make this easier to answer.
  2. you cannot link photos in your gmail. you need to upload them to tinypic or another hosting site for us to see.

    even then there is no guarantee that we can know it by sight.

    look on the case... there may be a manufacturer stamped on it somewhere. do you have the manual still? that would also tell you.

    so i look at my case for a while, its a micro atx i think, seven expansion slots
  4. or you could recommend me a case if you cant figure out this one, here is what it should be like
    max size 47x47x20, micro atx, something that can hold a cooler master hyper 212 and can hold a msi gtx 750 oc 1gb ddr5 twin frozr and a cooler master elite 500w

    sorry i did not know about it. and no i do not have the manual because its very old i threw it away, there is no stamp that i can see, thats why i said its a stupid question cause its very hard to find it out
  6. i have good news and bad news, good news is i found a stamp inside the case bad news is its worn out and i cant see it very well
  7. Most small cases that are that narrow won't fit a hyper 212 evo, for other heat sinks look at this guide.

    Or if you can vary on the dimensions there are some other solutions that can fit the cooler, but are wider than 20cm

    just measured again the max width is 24cm
  9. just searched on my local stores for a cheap and big case, this is the best i can find without spending alot. (im in portugal by the way) http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/components/rc-k350-kwn2-en.html
    but i need to think about another cpu cooler
  10. just found another cheap one, cooler master Force 500 black, think ill go for this one, so, tell me if it is all compatible
    cooler master force 500 black
    cooler master elite power 500w
    p7h55-m pro mobo
    i3-530 oc'ed to 3.5
    cooler master hyper 212
    kingston 4gb ddr3 1333 (2x2)
    msi gtx 750 oc 1gb twin frozr (non ti)
    should i go for 500w or 400w?
  11. the hyper 212 evo should fit in that case
    That power supply is somewhat unreliable, if you can find a corsair cx430 in your area it should be around the same price, also xfx, seasonics, fsp, and superflower are good brands

    Also do you already have that processor/mobo or are you buying them? they are several gens behind what is current. Other than that all the parts are pretty well balanced and should work, 400watts is plenty for a gtx 750.
  13. CoolerMaster 431 Elite will fit a Hyper212, if only just.
