Does anyone recognise the model of this case? I've been looking all over the net and can't find anything about it. My dad used to use these cases back in about 2003 when he built customs for people but he doesn't remember. Its easily one of the best built cases I've ever seen. All the stickers have been removed if there were any on it. If anyone could find me a model number that would be great.

Does look like a good case, especially for its time. Though, off the top of my head I couldnt tell you what type, I can tell you they dont make it anymore, if you wanted one youd have to find it used and it would be very difficult. I will say this, while that is a nice case and would still handle a modern build, they do make better cases now, for relatively low cost, it wouldnt hurt to get on newegg or tigerdirect and shop around if your in the market for a new case.

Well I work in a computer repair shop, and we have a whole back room full of cases that are going to an E-waste program. I salvaged a few of these cases. I was just curious of the model. I did find a sticker on it that said it was manufactured in June of 2003, but that's about it.

ya, I have a few of those. Sometimes, its fun to take the cases like that that are functional, go down to wal-mart and pick up some spray paint, and give them a new look, and put modern components into them. I did that with a old HP case, I spray painted it black with silver trim and yellow lightning bolts, then put a whole new computer inside for my brother. Yet another I spray painted metallic silver, Im still using it for a linux box, and an even older gateway full ATX case that I cant really use, my wife spray painted a two colored brown pattern over it and were using it as an end table.

Those type of case from around that era, are hard to recognize the model.

Yup. You had one nameless OEM that made the actual metal cases and then the plastic trim/front covers were specified/added by the "brander". I had lots of those old no name cases, numerous different brands, and you could interchange trim panels between most of them.

I am a retired Ford tech. Next to Fords, any computer is a piece of cake. (The cake, its not a lie)
