    I rather buy a case that's around 100 euros, and then put the saved money towards better components. Even 100 euros is enough for a Fractal case. Or at least was, I haven't checked if they have raised their prices. Hard to imagine that Asus case would be really worth that much extra in practical use.

    I actually quite like the styling of that case and am thinking of basing my next build around it using ROG components for the aesthetics.

    I don't think the price is too bad, considering theres 4x 140mm fans stock and USB C which according to Gamers Nexus is expensive which is why it's reserved for high end cases, ASUS like coolermaster have them tested to make sure they can maintain the throughput of the standard, then 2 panels of tempered glass, glass on the front with RGB, a £97 RGB/Fan controller built into it (minus the RGB shroud however) dual vertical GPU mounting dust filters on the bottom, top and front, support for 3x140mm or 4x120mm Rads. If you don't like to spend more than 100 euros well this clearly not the case for you. Me personally £100 cases are normally utter garbage but everyone to their own, people have limited budgets. I personally am waiting for the Lian Li PC-O11 WGX ROG V2. My Corsair Air 550 will just have to do, i am a fan of cubed cases.

    I've used a lot of cases over the years for various builds both personal and for others, and a modern £70-120 case from a decent company (Corsair has some great low budget stuff) is usually very good. I wouldn't personally spend the sort of money Asus are looking for here on a case, then again I don't like flashy lit up cases with windows for my own use.
