Casing I think I firm on Frontliner/Tecware Alpha. And also.... quad but that one abit not mainstream. But looks like a subwoofer. Lol. Any opinion on it?

The Alpha is cheap, good airflow, comes with 2x usb3 in the front, comes with front, back and top fan. So value.
Avoid Tecware, for the same price or less, you can get Cooler Master N200.
It is also cheap, better airflow and comes with 2 fans also, but with much better build quality.

Go for Tecware if poor quality, soft metal, cheap plastic, unreliable fans, shaky USB ports and crappy power button is your thing.

I wasnt saying seasonic is no good. Im going 1 big round and saying "paying abit more and get something better is never ending"

I say I get A, someone say B.
I say I get B, someone say C.

End of the day its RNG.

But of course im appreciative of all the help from everyone.

Like that I get Xigmatek sua. N200 not my 菜.

Ohhh I see.
Aiya, he tot silver is better than bronze then say silver better nia, but actually silver and bronze no diff, get a bronze enough already.

Am using tecware quad and at first got problems with inserting my mobo in because got this metal part refuse to give way.

In the end I use force and because the metal not as solid so easily removed it and then good to go

Overall a solid case for its price I feel but if I had more Budget I would definitely think of getting a more solid one.

Emmmm I'm not recommending based on certifications....recommending based on psu. Oh well at the end of the day is ts choice.

Btw i didnt say seasonic s12ii is bad - http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php...tory5&reid=185

Just that if can, choose a decent modular psu. Super flower leadex is one of the cheaper and better ones.

Aiya, both is good modular psu, I use superflower extensively also. But to me silver is like the weird middle child, neither here nor there when comes to 80+ grading. Either bronze, or gold.

From the way Synchronicity type, I know he read alot of review and honestly I also gt read the one he recommend got the best review. But like that top up $20 top up $20 really making my finance minister aggro.

Personally I believe that if a product is bad there would be TONS of negative review online. But since I cant find any then shud be safe. Every product gt chance to get RNG bad one la.

To me, idc if bronze or gold. 80 or 85 I dont really bother.

Typo. Meant s12 not m12. Anyway both models are basically using the same components. Just s = non-modular and m = modular

lol, in that case don't come forum ask lah, ownself research and decide can alr, since u dont care and already fixated only on what you found. Funny eh you.

The way you put it, then why you still get ASUS, Gigabyte, Samsung and Corsair? Get ASRock, Palit, PNY and SKHynix can alr, all about RNG mah, there is no good quality or bad quality parts, only you heng or suay nia.

All the OEM wasted millions on their R&D and QC liao, should have let RNG take over good enuff.

1) More inputs doesn't hurt. Im fixated but nt stubborn. Quite afew people say Tecware F3 is bad, then I dont buy. It was my initial choice.

2) Initially I did think about getting Asrock. But Asrock mobo got no C-State that's why I took Asus in the end. Certainly not for the brand.

@robolee Yup, getting a Gold+ PSU.
