Surface Pro 5 News - release date, UK price, features, specs
I came across a "Demo" one of these and I must have one!
Does anyone have a similar case and can tell me if the sound level is more noticeable, as the Ad's would say can I "see" more sound than with a metal case?
Also do they usually come with the cages for hard and floppy drives?
I am going to buy a "Barebones" upgrade when I have finished checking the various ones available.
Any comments/info on these cases will be appreciated.
Hi bathjobby, I have been looking at AKASA, they have some cases similar to the one I saw locally.
Thanks for your help,
They tend to get poor write ups re the heat problem the plastic insulates the heat apparently, suggest big fans if getting one
Hi david.h, thanks for that info, I will check out the demo one I saw and see if it is getting hot after being on display all day in the shop.
One thing concerns me about perspex cases. Perspex is very good at accumulating static. How well are they protected against this problem?
I worked with some perspex cases for a while...
They have 2 option's...
DIY (Build them Your self come in kit form)
The latter is easier due to the fact that it saves a lot of time.
To do the DIY you need to wear glove's use glue and screw's and it can be fiddly...
The cases them selves i think that the temperatures are slightly higher, but the good thing is that you can get the cases in a different tint (Blue, green, clear and many other's...)
Static is only a problem when installing the hardware after it is installed it tends to be insulated i think!
Companies to look at though are beantech and there are many other's but that is who's cases i have dealth with.
than seeing the inner workings of a computer through a perspex case - especially when the inside surfaces have acquired a good coating of dust, drawn there by the static charge that such cases will no doubt accumulate.
A computer is a tool after all - there to be used rather than made into a decor talking point.............or am I just being an old stick-in-the-mud?
Try looking at a Dyson vacuum cleaner after it's been used!
I'm with you but I would say "old stick in the mud" must describe us pretty well.
There seems to be a huge market in case modding and led's and plastic all over the place.
As for lugging you pc to a LAN party? Where do all the screens come from?
sapins good luck, hope you get one your are happy with, next will be the fans & psu's with led's.
As usual lot's of welcome advice, I'm old but I'm not stuck in any mud;-) I am definitely going for one of these cases and I've already found info on fans, cables, and psu's all with a wide choice of colours. I have also found an article on assembling a case from start to finish, doesn't look too complicated but I think a pre-assembled one will be better.
I can think of lot's of thing's less attractive than a see through case, Beige Box, Printer, Scanner, Beige Speakers, holders for out of date magazines, last months?,(sorry about that)Beige Monitor, I'm going to paint that one of these day's :-). As for just being a tool, Televisions are only for watching a picture on, Hi Fi's only for listening to music, I won't go on.
At least with a perspex case you can see if it needs the Dyson!
I'll have a longer look at beantech later, the home page has me drooling, technical term used by modders! getting the jargon now as well. so thanks for all the help and advice, I wouldn't expect less from this forum.
