A case…is a case…is a case, as long as it has a 300W or more Power Supply and is AMD Athlon approved. As far as most people are concerned, as long as the case works, and has enough room for your equipment and cooling, you couldn’t care less if the case is black, white, clear, or yellow, as long as it’s functions just as good as any other. Of course, if you’re a [H] guy, you’ve already sent me a flaming e-mail just for saying that. To most people, a case is just the shell that keeps your computer components protected, as well as a place for the power supply to live. To the fellows of NimbusPC, that’s not the case. While surfing around on the infamous Internet auction site eBay, I came across what was to be the case I would fall in love with. It’s white, but has a little blue around the edges, and has the best power supply I’ve ever seen in my life.
The Power Supply
That’s correct. You are seeing that correctly. Along with having the usual male adapter for the computer power, this power supply is equipped with four standard AC outlets. Not only are these just standard AC outlets, they feature the surge protection that a standard surge protector features. Surge protection is a very nice thing to have built into a PC Power supply, as it will protect all of the components inside of the computer itself without you having to go out and purchase an extra surge protector for US$30.
