  1. hey all. im thinking of buying this case

    Case

    In the specs, what do the dimensions mean.

    W/O package: L:445+35 W:200 H:412(mm)
    W package: L:535 W:220 H:456(mm)

    I need it to fit inside a cabinet style space. Without 'package' it is fine and will fit. With the package it wont. But, what is the package though? Is it the actual product packaging (cardboard box, plastic, etc). Package seems vague to me and I would be grateful if someone could tell me what is meant by 'package'.

    Cheers

    Yeah, with package would be with the actual box it comes in(cardboard etc).

    So the one you're looking for is w/o package.

    hi jaf,

    if you plan on stuffing a computer into a cabinet, make sure that it at least has an fully open back (not just a hole to run wires through). if not, then you're case will not get enough cool air and may overheat. that case intakes from the left side panel, so hot air exhusted from the back would just get sucked back in over and over again.

    just something to consider... good luck :)

    Cheers for clearing that up i_am_a_newbie, i have ordered the case. As for KingCody there is no back panel which would be blocking the exhaust air, it would be bad if there was.

    Cheers.
