got a job at the computer parts store ive been buying from for years!

Title pretty much sums it up, last week I started at umart online here in australia and its the best job I've ever had! My hobby basically just became a career and my girlfriends sick of hearing about work because I just won't shut up! Hahaha.

Sadly, no. -.- it's like the cheapest store for most things anyway, Samsung even contacted my boss forcing us to raise prices on some items because they were too cheap and nobody could compete. Hah.

It's not hard work, it's fun and half the time I'm window shopping for my pc builds
Also you get to know what products are consistently faulty.

That could play in your favor. Do keep us posted if you score.

I certainly can. But I'll wait till I'm on my computer to write that one up :P

However I can tell you it's nice, easy to install but the removable covers on th top and the front are..annoying at best.I have to make sure nobody tries to move it around because at first I almost dropped my system because of the covers. The feet are annoying once you notice them you cannot unnotice them. It's awkward to move around.

As for the good features, it has true usb 3.0 support, the hdd dock on the top has proved useful many times and the dust filters are great.
I've decided however the case just isn't me and I'm opting for a smaller case as I wish to get into lanning. So im purchasing a corsair 600t white

All in all, its a great case If you want room (fits biggest CPU coolers and gfx cards.) And has a nice aggressive gamer look to it. Good cable management and a decent case if you're going to have it on carpet and leave it at home (feet elevate it for airflow underneath) toolless design and yeah, a great case if you need a roomy mid tower with all the bells and whistles.

So its a mid tower? i thought it was a full. also what say you one the build quality? is like steel or plastic? or both? i did some reading and some people said a lot of it was plastic and felt flimsy and cheap. your thoughts?
