SECC metal

hey guys recently I've been looking at new cases and when i look next to were it says "materials:" sometimes it just says "SECC" now what is SECC? is it a steel? is it an aluminium? or is it some other weird type of metal? My main concerns is that this material will be very thin and flimsy causing warping. Also I'm concerned about vibrations and loudness.

  1. Best answer
    SECC stand for SECC — Steel, Electrogalvanized, Cold rolled, Coil..
    Usually after SECC come with a size (0.6mm ~1.0mm )

    Mostly I suggest buy something above 0.8mm...
  2. Ok thanks. This is the case I was thinking of getting (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119206) the problem is I cant find a thickness gauge for it anywhere. Even Cooler Masters website doesnt say give the thickness of the metal.
  3. if for the same price I may perfer this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119233

    I don't know how thin you will consider as thin...
    For me the one you choose is acceptable... But for me I like the case have a black coating inside..
  4. That gladiator looks to be 0.8 to my eyes and a few reviews refer to it feeling solid so it shouldn't be a flimsy case if thats what concerns you :)
    @Sonec, bare cases can always be stripped and painte by the owner, although it is nice to have it come already black :P
