Treasures or Trash? 5 PC Cases for Gamers
By

Snazzy outside, plain inside.

Inside the ExtremEngine 3T, you won't find too much out of the ordinary. A drive cage that extends from top to bottom offers lots of room for 5.25" and 3.5" drives. There is also another 120 mm fan pre-installed for ample drive cooling.

Internal case layout:
1 = Power Supply
2 = 5.25" drive bays
3 = 3.5" drive bays, also accessible from the case front
4 = 3.5" drive bays only accessible from inside the case
5 = motherboard

An illuminated 120 mm fan is installed right in front of the drive cage.

    I have owned this case previously until a guest "borrowed" (???!!!!) my computer for a few days and I loved it. I had a black one ane my son has the red one. They are absolutely beautiful and although I do not know very much about computer cases I can say that personally neither my son nor I received our cases in anything but a pristine condition. My children gave me this case after my first stroke and I used it and it's components for over 3 years. I play everquest, everquest2,WoW and had over 150 games from GameHouse and BigFishGames on it and it ran perfectly. In my humble opinion, I think it is worth every cent plus more. Not to be argumentative at all, just voicing my opinion 8)
