After digging through my newegg order history, and realizing that my CPU/MOBO/RAM is ~7 years old and my GFX card is ~2 years, I decided it was time to work on a new PC. I get on newegg to look for cases. Easy requirements, or so I thought. <$150 Mid-tower to short full tower, 4-5 5.25" bays, preferably 1 3.5" bay, no door on the front, no window on the side ( adding sound dampening inside, 500 mm fans over top the GFX card and CPU fan letting all their noise out, prevent that from working right ) And finally a clean, simple look. So I get on newegg, figuring I'll find a coolermaster case as usual. (CM Centurion serving me currently) Nope. Not a single candidate in stock on newegg. (The CM gladiator was close, didnt really need all the big fan holes on the side. ) Then searching more manufacturers, besides a few cases that were close, all the other hundreds of cases on newegg vary from a few just not being my style, to ***** repellent, to the results of a Reaper visiting planned parenthood, with dr terminator doing the procedure. Other than Lian Li, who thankfully stuck with simple clean lines, but only the pricy mega towers are in stock. Luckily Amazon had a windowless Lian Li PC-8N in stock. WTF happened that coolermaster turned into a NZXT/RAIDMAX sort of case Mfr, and a whole lot of new (to me) companies dumped a TON of ugly onto the market? I mean I've seen some ugly/wtf mods on here, but with good craftsmanship to appreciate at least, and its at least to that persons taste when they are working on it. But stuff like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811133192 is like buying a 1992 honda CRX thats been riced to the max off a used car lot. Like seriously, the molds for injection molding that would cost thousands(Even in china, thats a crap load of different moldings) , plus CAD/CAM work to prepare for that, on top of actual supplies/materials, how do they sell enough of those to turn a profit. /rant ****, am I turning into a crotchety old man?
