New Computer Case

Nov 2, 2012

On Tuesday, I ordered my new computer case. The “A+ Blockbuster Storm” (Link to Amazon at the end of this post). Small Home Theather PC Case but instead of being for ITX boards, this can take a mATX and a full size ATX board. Here are some of the pictures of the case.

On the left of the screen you can see the Samsung 830 SSD and below is the motherboard. (Yes, it looks a bit dirty but I will sort that soon.)

The lights only go up depending on how fast the fan is going since it’s powered off the same Molex connector.

I have removed the DVD Drive for the time being. I don’t use it a lot so I am at no loss. Better for the cables tbh
