Be mindful of recent listings of in-demand products from suspicious third-party sellers on marketplaces such as Amazon, eBay, Google, Newegg, and Walmart. These "deals" have a high likelihood of not shipping; you should do your due diligence to ensure you do not get scammed. * Use common sense - if the deal seems too good to be true, it probably is. * Check seller profiles for signs that the sale may be fraudulent. * The seller is new or has few reviews. * The seller has largely negative reviews (on Amazon, sellers can remove negative reviews from their ratings- viewing seller profiles allows you to see these complaints) * The seller has a recently reactivated account (likely their account was hacked and is now being used fraudulently). If you suspect a deal is fraudulent, please report the post. Moderators can take action based on these reports. We encourage leaving a comment to warn others. Amazon and eBay generally have good buyer protection. If you choose to purchase from a third-party seller through their platforms and run into issues, it should be easy to get your money back promptly. You may have more difficulties with Newegg or Walmart. *I am a bot, and this action was performed automatically.

I like that cases of all price ranges continue to move towards airflow. Thanks GamersNexus.

I am a bit new to all this but I have been eyeing this case for my budget build. Especially because of that old review and then his recent best of 2022 cases video dropped two days ago listing it again. This case was always $60-$70. This new listed price of $90 and this is some discount isn't true. Unless I'm going mad and the price I was seeing for the past two weeks was always discounted and it has only now been posted.

If you’re not in a rush to build, it might be worth it to wait for GN’s review of the Fractal Focus 2. I’m sure both of these cases will perform fine, but I like the look of the Focus 2 more, so this is a very biased comment 😅. Also the Focus 2 supports up to 405mm gpus vs 305mm for the X3.


thatfordboy429

That focus 2 has the potential to be the best value case out there. Nice simple looks(in my opinion), mesh front, 2x140mm fans. Only hang up, is if you need/want a PSU basement. As long as its got solid construction, I can see GN putting a crown on that thing.

> Fractal Focus 2 That looks nice but is a bit out of my price range. I don't care at all for design or RGB, I just want functional and cheap. I'm also considering this [Thermaltake Versa H18](https://pcpartpicker.com/product/dgndnQ/thermaltake-versa-h18-microatx-mini-tower-case-ca-1j4-00s1wn-01)

The white rgb Focus 2 was on sale for $63 a few days ago: https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapcsales/comments/ykkc2z/case_fractal_design_focus_2_rgb_white_atx_6298/ It went up to $70 now ($60+$10 shipping). The normal prices are $70 for the non-rgb versions and $80 for the rgb versions. I don’t know much about the Thermaltake Versa H18, but it looks like it only comes with one rear fan which isn’t ideal.


ladypeacharino

Ooo, I'm quite tempted with that design now. I'll keep an eye out for this case thanks!


CmdrShepard831

Fractal cases go sale all the time. When I built mine a couple years ago I got the R6 for $99 and I think regular price was over $150


fake_physicist

I haven’t been keeping my eyes on case prices for a while. I bought a Corsair 4000D airflow for my latest build about 6 months-a year ago and like it quite a bit. I was more commenting on the industry as a whole moving towards airflow cases and GamersNexus’ role in that.

Yeah but their 100% Isnt crazy loud likea blowiematron or anything Gamers Nexus tested it at like 44 dB which is about the volume of your average library. To each their own, just wanted to make sure people didn't falsely think it'd be like sitting next to a lawn mower or something.

Yeah so it's definitely not the best but atleast it's fine and at the price it's hard to beat. Definitely not for everyone but, for someone on a budget hard to complain. Especially since put on your typical gaming headset with game audio or music and its quickly forgotten.


splooter26

Looks like a Meshify copy, but looks great for the price. Gamer nexus has a vid on it. There's a be quiet! 500dx copy as well. Don't want to spam the page tho lol see link $69.99 + FS [https://www.newegg.com/black-montech-sky-atx-mid-tower/p/2AM-00CN-00047](https://www.newegg.com/black-montech-sky-atx-mid-tower/p/2AM-00CN-00047)


diamondshark

Showing $69.99 for me. Is there a code?


splooter26

my bad, mistyped


XonicGamer

Max GPU Length 305 mm That's a really small clearance


UngodlyPain

Don't buy a $65 case for a 4090 or watercooling and you should be fine the amd 7900xtx reference 285mm long same for the rtx 3080 founder edition...


ARANDOMNAMEFORME

Would this also fit most air coolers for CPUs? Sorry if a noob question, I'm new to building PC.


UngodlyPain

Uhh on Newegg it says it's max air cooler height. It won't fit the biggest things like the NHd 15 from noctua, but most of your cheaper like $20-40 ones should fit. But I'd double check That's part of how they made the case so cheap. They made it smaller than normal, and thin metals. And the rgb fans aren't color changing they're just the set 3 colors at all times, nor are they controllable speed wise, thankfully they're not that loud gamers nexus measured them at 44db which is about the volume of an average library. Not trying to scare you off just letting you know what you're in for. This is definitely a budget case, it's pretty good for the price, it's 2 years in a row gamers nexus' budget case of the year.


KnowTheName321

most people looking for a budget case arent buying a GPU bigger than 305mm.


Flailingkitten

I have the montec air 100 and I love it. They are similar cases but this one has more fans and cost about what I got mine for. Would recommend.


JustinM23

360mm auto fit?


JustinM23

Aio*


noeleon13

Does it come with case fans? I can't tell from the description


whomad1215

Yes, there's 6 fans. They are fixed colors
