Regardless of budget, most system builders want a case that can handle enthusiast hardware while being cool, quiet and hopefully somewhat sexy. With hundreds of models available, mid-towers are by far the most popular form factor, supporting most full-sized hardware including the ever abundant ATX motherboards and power supplies while typically costing only $50 to $75.
In most situations, any mid-sized enclosure in that price range will be adequate for a standard build, but Silverstone, Corsair and In Win have launched new contenders that are said to deliver the build quality, design, features and performance of pricier models without breaking the bank.
Indeed at first glance it's hard to believe that Silverstone's Kublai KL05 is south of $100, much less being in line with In Win's 703 at $65, while Corsair's $50 Carbide 100R seems smart if you're solely after a bargain.
