Gamermax Explorer case impressed YES!

I wanted something that would house a Matx board and possible water cooling system.
The cases out there especially last year have been box in a box and the industry seems to forget we still are in a recession period!
I found this online and not many reviews as it was about 30USD or 25GBP delivered! YES a sub $50 50 case with quality steel!
The only gripe is the PSU space is tightish even with my EVGA small print compared to full size PSU the cables will need decent routing. But some will say its not tight at all but when I use the space where(mech) hardrives go for cable dumping I would have prefered a space not partioned. Anyways pleanty of space up front and can take three 120mm at the front one 120mm in the back and a 240mm radiator at the top so another 2X120mm
at the top. Can hold a full size GPU even has enough room space for the 120mm fan on the end.

The Game Max Explorer is a compact case designed for maximum cooling. The cooling system allows for up to 6 x 120mm fans, or 3 x 120mm fans and a 240mm water cooling radiator. The dual layer internal layout gives excellent cooling with maximum component support, supporting Micro ATX and Mini iTX motherboards, and up to 4 x HDDs (2 x 2.5" & 2 x 3.5" or 4 x 2.5").

The side window and black powder coating to the interior allows the user to install LED lighting to give a unique look to their system, whilst the internal cable management system keeps most of the internal cables hidden, to aid in increased airflow and keeping the system looking clean and tidy.

Dont let the compact size fool you - this little one handles full size components while still offering roomy installation space.

Forgot to mention there is a decent dust shield for the PSU at the bottom where its definitly going to get dusty. I stuck some componets to test everything like the front plate and USB's all good quality flat wired in black and a nice USB3 cable! They are discontinued but they have other cases like Slient and Volcano!
