THIS CASE TICKS ALL THE BOXES BUT WHY SO RARE?!!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys I'm in UK and I was looking for a budget case that has a mesh front panel and Hinged side tempered glass. 

It has all of these for a very reasonable price at £37.

What I don't get is Why is it so rare and not that popular considering on paper it seems so good.

My only issue is with the front USB 2.0 connectors but apart from that it's fine. 

I could not find any reviews on Youtube. Noone has covered it..

Does anyone know the deal with this case?  Anyone heard of it? 

Is CiT a good brand?  

Is it the real deal?

Better alternative suggestions?

I have never heard of CiT and judging from the cases they have listed they are cheap, like really cheap, all of them are under $40. It seems a little to good to be true to me.

If you ask for a Mid Tower case recommend, I will 90% of the time recommend the Fractal Design Meshify C or S2.

CIT is a legit brand.... But they're one of those Chinese retailers that's likely reusing a lot of case tooling from other manufacturers and using thinner materials to cut down on cost.

I ended up stretching the budget and getting the phanteks p400a. I have 2 Noctua airflow fans ( NF-S12B 1200rpm Model) on the way. I am thinking of moving the middle rgb fan from the front to make an exhaust fan (probably top ) and put on noctua fan in the middle and the other as another exhaust fan. 

Do you think that's a good idea or should I just mount both noctua fans as exhaust fans or some other way?
