Snowblind only $199?!?!?

 

 

https://www.newegg.com/p/2AM-00CK-00003

 

I thought that case would be more expensive.

 

I assume the "ibuypower" logo inside the case would be easy enough to paint over,  does anyone know how the front logo is on the glass?  Can it be removed or covered up without looking like ass?

I don't get it, you're asking if it's a good deal ? It's not. NZXT H510 Elite with similar enough design costs 50$ less, includes all the RGB stuff and it's already overpriced if you ask me.

I always kinda "looked down" on cases (and gear) that have eSports team branding, for example. What happens when the team is not relevant anymore, for example? Anyway, that seems like a very expensive case, for what it is. You'd find better stuff from Phanteks at that price, and even cheaper.

Quote me so I can reply back :)

You must not be familiar with the Snowblind.

You realize that this is the case with a screen built into the side panel, right?  

 

Edit:

iBuyPower was a company before they started sponsoring/owning(?) teams.

I'm definitely not, this case doesn't worth it regardless.

There's more than just the aesthetics (already questionable if you ask me) to the case, this one seems to not have any airflow on the front panel at all (maybe there's tiny intakes on top or bottom of it i dunno) and overall looks like NZXT H500 knockoff, probably outsourced to the same factory but who knows if they've cheaped out on it even more (there are reports that NZXT H500 doesn't worth it quality-wise in the first place). If you want to pay 150$ more for LCD display only fine, go for it.

Did you watch that video?  The side panel is an actual screen.

I'm pretty impressed with that price too.

Just kidding. I get it, if you think that it's a good price for 70$ NZXT H500 knockoff with LCD side panel then go for it. I don't think it is.

And no amount of sponsored videos will change that lol, LMG channels are the last source of 'reviews' for anything i'd resort to.

If you don't think that a side panel that is also a screen is cool then I don't understand what gets you going.

Umm, actual performance ? Features besides gimmicks like RGB and LCD screens ? Not milking people by sticking some random brandname on products and asking twice the price for it ? Smth like that.

Obviously, that case isn't going to improve a system.  That case is awesome because it's fun.  That case is a toy that holds another toy.  

 

If you want a case for performance than you want something like an open bench or a Thermaltake Core P3.

Exactly. I don't get what's so 'fun' about this case but obviously it's just not my cup of tea. I just want PC parts manufacturers to get over all this RGB shit and start to make quality products that worth the price without making it up with dozen of LEDs and asking 100$ more for that..

I agree about all the RGB.  Well, I guess until you configure it into a 1280X1024 matrix and slap it on the side panel.  Then I think it's awesome.
