A detailed review of the Casecom 6630. This review is written by someone who uses it everyday. Casecom provide cheap computer cases for low-budget builds. The Casecom 6630 is just like that. Here we showcase the Pros and Cons of the Casecom 6630.
First Of All…
The Casecom 6630 is one of the cheapest computer cases available on the internet. While it looks like a sturdy, secure case – it does have it’s disadvantages…
The Casecom 6630 features two handy front USB ports, a front 3.5mm port and microphone port, 4x 5.25″ Bays, 3.5 inch SATA hard drive bays, 6 PCI Express Slots, two 80mm fan slots (one on the back and one on the side panel, one 92mm front fan and a thumbscrew case. It is also Micro ATX Compatible, I installed my micro ATX motherboard on it.
The reason you shouldn’t buy the Casecom 6630 is firstly the motherboard layout. I could not install my motherboard with a perfect fit since this case’s standoff holes aren’t laid out properly. I couldn’t install the I/O shield since the weird angle the I/O ports are at. However, you can still access all the I/O ports just fine.
Secondly, this case only comes with TWO STANDOFFS! They only cost about 10 pence/15 cents and they couldn’t include a sufficient amount. This meant that part of my motherboard was touching the case and I had to slide a piece of cardboard underneath to stop it from shorting. Since I’m a first time computer “builder” I didn’t have spares.
Thirdly, the PCI Slots couldn’t fit properly and I had to lodge them into place. This was scary since the I didn’t want to break any parts. My Graphics card is literally lodged into place and I can’t even secure it in place with a screw because the case is so poorly designed that I can’t install a on the PCI’s.
Fourthly, the front of the Casecom 6630 was on so tightly that when I pulled it off one of the locks broke off. However, the front of the case is fine and is still secure. The side panels are very hard to put back on without it at the wrong angle.
On the bright side, the fans fit on perfectly and the HDD’s and CD drives fit on perfectly.
Overall go with a more expensive case than the Casecom 6630, I’d rather spend 10 extra bucks to get a more secure case. I recommend these Cooler Master HAF 922 beasts.
