I always prefer to see the case in person so I can get a feel for how big it really is, how well built it is and how it really looks.

Images on the sellers websites can be misleading.

I also like to read users reviews.

For example is this the one you are looking at?

User reviews

I DO NOT RECOMMEND LIQUID COOLING IN THIS CASE.The case is also very flimsy and bends alot during building but fine while running.

another

Black inside and out; thin metal; lots of airflow.

Cons: Will not fit all-in-one water coolers from Antec or Corsair without cutting the case.

Other Thoughts: Because the case is thin metal it will keep everthing cooler and it is easy to cut for modding (and voiding any warranty). I cut the case to fit a Antec - KÜHLER H₂O 920.


Thin metal (Flimsy) is good???

Rotor has the right mind set. IMHO a thicker case is good for people who have a lot of components and want to make it look cool. A thiner case would be for those who want a cheep case for a budget or starter build. IE. a daily use desktop.

And yes really good idea to read the reviews. I got a bad case once, flipin thing was all mangled when I got it. Read the reviews and saw it wasn't just me.

But shop around a little an if you find another one you like post a link here an we will take a look. :)

Thermaltake's budget or lower range cases tends to be flimsy, not just the Commander case but the V3 and V4 are flimsy. I believe there Level 10 GT case are much more better and quite unique IMO. I generally like Coolermaster's case because they are solid and well built.
