A1200 Tower Case

I've recently been considering upgrading to a Tower + Mediator setup. Does anyone know of any good cases available other than the D-Box?

And owners of the D-Box, do you recommend this case?

Building a power Amiga is the best journey you can on....

I use an eyetech Z4 tower...

Remember though If you expect the destination to be anything like as powerful as todays computers be prepared for disappointment....

The two towers that I've been able to find for sale is the Power Tower (E-Box) and the D-Box.

Although I think the Power Tower looks quite nice, I've been told its horrible, big and heavy. I'm trying to make a decision between the two, does anyone own (or has owned) both of these things?

Yeah, i have an olde version of the Power Tower and has never gave me any problems (touch wood!)

Not the prettiest in the world but gets the job done.

250 Watt Power Supply might be pushed with a mediator and Power PC card though!

Speaking as a dedicated computer butcher:

Buy a Dremmel, buy the box you really want & start modding.

D-box feels kind of cheap to me it is light but everything fits excellent and looks nice too. Some will love it i will rate it 5\10 because i am used to far better casings on the x86 side.. But for amiga casing go for it if you can justify spending that much on it ..

Listen to this dude Charlie, he knows what he's talking about

The big Antec Performance II cases (I have my server in one) seem a nice choice for an A1200 mod:
