Lets see here...first coolermaster dumps 2 classic cases.
If you want one, you can still get one. I don't know which ones you were talking about them killing, but I hated most of them anyway. I've still got one of the older ATC's, and the door was warped from the get-go. The ones without the door, I didn't care so much about.
Antecs cases all look the same. I mean my case i bought back in 2000 looks the same as the current shit. Thermaltakes cases look like antecs cases on crack.
Normal. Chieftec makes these and they just try to add their flare so they look different than the other. And the design is tried and true, so why change? I hate the thermaltakes, but with all the bling-bling type buying them, I wouldn't mind if I was making them. Going down the case isle at Fry's, I always see freaks gawking this horid looking thing. They're fascinated with flashing things.
Are these companies really running out of ideas? And is anybody besides me getting tired of a generic case with fan in the window yet?
Not in my opinion. They're just adjusting to the fads to sell a product. If you make a case that looks like a power ranger head or a big glowing cube of dog poo, it'll sale. The only thing they haven't done is put some spinning wheel things on the fan covers...or a "whoo whoo" device:p
OH and the future of cases....the CM STACKER...is a tall tower meant so u can place every stupid knob and fan controller that CM has in lineup on it.
Just because that's what they show on their site doesn't mean you have to actually buy all that crap for it to be a great case. I don't know what you're looking at, but it's the best performing case I've ever had.
Im hoping someone gets some fresh ideas cause these cases are boring.
Take an active part in this then. I know as a fact that coolermaster is taking suggestions very seriously. I've mentioned several flaws in their line and they've responded and acted upon many of them.
I'm not sure about you, but I buy on performance, then take a look at it for aesthetics. What, exactly, are you looking for if all these cases are boring? No, I'm not super happy with the majority, but I never HAVE been impressed with many. They're just cases dood. I doubt they'll ever make a be-all, end-all case that makes everyone happy. Until then, they'll follow the trends and fads the market requests. Until then, brake out some sheetmetal and a dremel...
And what's wrong with what Norem posted? That's not so bad...
