The case looks good. It's your basic "Dragon" design. It may be a Raidmax case, but I bet this case says Cheiftec all over the inside of it (just like all cases of this design that are supposedly made by different companies).

I wouldn't trust that PSU. I have a phobia of generic powersupplies. However, I do know several people who have used whatever came with the case and have not had any problems. I'd never do that myself, but I know it's not impossible.

thank you for your quick reply. i'm not buying any parts till the end of this month. i think i'm goin to agree with you and just go for a 40 thermaltake psu or somethin like that. that case is sweet though with 8 stock fans. should be really nice.

Yeah it's the Cheiftec design made to look like a Thermaltake Xaser from the front with the red and black colour scheme.

Personally i would avoid the PSU.

the 12V on that PSU is only 13Amps, bad, especially for a modern system.

Dude, seriouslly, that is REALLY low, just because you have one from the same company doesn't mean that it is the same model.

that is true...but its aggrivating if a psu takes out a $150 mobo...you have to agree with me there!

I was a bit confused coz you seemed to contradict yourself coz first you said "raidmax is a pretty good company...i myself am using their 420watt psu, that came with my case".

it is a pretty good company...but i didnt have luck with them, as opposed to other people...But it was excellent while it was alive, until it croaked and took away my beloved DFI mobo, may it rest in peace...sniff sniff...but im also saying that raidmax cases are pretty good

Oh, I thought you were being sarcastic and defending them, but I would stay away from Raidmax PSUs, I've worked in generic and Antec cases, I do enjoy Antec cases ALOT.

well, i htink i will get the raidmax case b/c it has 8 stock cooking fans. that is awesome. and it looks sweet too. i am also goin to get the 400w psu on newegg from thermaltake...i think everyone likes that company and says their good. i will switch out the raidmax and maybe use it for another computer i may build in the future.

again, thank you for your replys
