    I've been looking at cases but would like to hear from others incase I missed a good one.

    I'm looking for a decent case which is:

    • Sleek and plain, dont really want fancy stuff, no weird bevels, protruding parts, weird/whacky shapes, the more plain, nice/elegant looking, the better.

    • The more the price is kept down the better, but if you think the price is worth every penny then please share.

    What's your budget, and What type of case are you looking for? - Silenced/airflow/watercooling support etc

    Between £30-£100 but the cheaper the better if its not sacraficing too much quality.

    Don't really need watercooling or anything special could be a standard case with regular fans, as long it doesn't sound like an airplane lol.

    The most important factors are a plain simply nice looking case + saving as much money.

    I recently got a fractal design r6 blackout without a window as I wanted something well built that didn't look ridiculous.

    Very happy with it, super easy to get everything tidy and has a bit of a 2001 monolith look to it.

    The only possible negative, is that it's huge. Probably not dissimilar it's contemporaries, but I'd been reusing my previous case for about the last 15 years and things seem to have gone big in the mean time.

    it's cheap, build quality is so-so, decently looking, but thermals are an issue as the case doesn't have very good ventilation

    Hmm this guy seems to be happy with the temps, do you mean for more like extreme OC builds? I think im going to stick a ryzen 2700x in it. Probably could get away with it. it's £35 total with delivery which is pretty damn cheap.

    Do you guys know any more cases similiar in simplicity and around the £50 budget range I could consider in comparison to the Kolink? Cheers.

    Oh yes that case looks great, was looking at it before would have bought instantly if it was under £50.

    Still contemplating, I don't really need a case its just sucky to put new components into a scuffed old case :D

    I've just sold my Cooltek U3 Micro ATX for £30, which is the sleekest/simplest/smartest case I've ever had. Great quality case, but only space for a max 260mm long GPU, hence the upgrade.
