Introduction

Often when you are shopping for a case you are confronted with the reality that the models you like the most are also the farthest out of your price range. At that point you can either prune down your budget for other parts in your build, OR you can try to find something that has the same features you want but at a more acceptable price. If you take the second route, then you will undoubtedly find yourself looking at some of RAIDMAX’s products eventually. For many years RAIDMAX’s aim has been to build a reputation for producing computer cases with first tier features at second tier prices.
