Budget enthusiast cases are just getting nicer and nicer, it seems. Thermaltake's new Commander MS-I is the latest enclosure to further the trend, with enthusiast amenities up the wazoo despite an asking price of just $49.99.
Let's see what we have here: a window, a bottom-mounted PSU area, a black-tinted motherboard tray with cut-outs for cable management and behind the CPU socket, support for graphics cards as long as 12.5", a 120-mm LED fan at the back, and a multitude of tool-less drive bays. Three 5.25" bays and one 3.5" bay face the outside of the case, while an additional five 3.5" bays and one 2.5" bay can play host to your hard drives and SSDs.
Out-of-the-box cooling is admittedly somewhat spartan, especially since the lone 120-mm exhaust fan is supposed to spin at just 1,000 RPM. That said, there's plenty of room for extra ventilation—the MS-I can accommodate top, front, and bottom 120-mm fans. Other perks include USB 3.0 connectivity, which Thermaltake only offers on one of the two variants of this case.
