My System Specs

Default cases similar to thermaltake armor a30

hey guys, looking at building a simple rig for my dad, and i really like the look of the Thermaltake armor a30.

Are there any cases similar to this, but maybe at a cheaper price point?

thanks.

I have a SG02B Black case for my HTPC. Nice little case. Things are tight inside, but you're going to get that in any SFF case. You'll probably want to buy two extra 80mm fans to keep it cool, since it only comes with one. And the power/hdd lights on the front are stupidly bright. If the computer is at eye level (like my HTPC) or if it's left on in a bedroom, you'll want to cover those up.

The Sugo also has the front panel usb/headphone jacks on the front, rather than on the side like the Lanbox Lite. This may or may not matter depending on where you put the case.
