titleWhen looking at cases for your next build, there are several ways that you can go.  On the high end, you have a plethora of options and can spend hundreds of dollars on one.  Then, there is the middle-of-the-road good quality case.  For a budget build, there are is also a litany of options.  When looking at a budget case there are some sacrifices that you make for the sake of price.  Today we are looking at the MSI Raptor case, a budget case with some interesting options.  Does this case’s unique options make up for the shortcomings of being a budget case, or is this another case you should skip even on a budget build?  Let’s put it through its paces and find out.

How about, no wire management. While it is a cheap case, it doesn't cost extra to cut holes in the motherboard tray. It would have been nice to see this included.

Loving the installed card readers along with the USB3 header. Not sure about the blue but it does stick with the MSI theme.

No fan filters either but again, cheap price, not gonna get many options. Atleast you can buy filters if you ever wanted to go down that road later. Then again, my case didn't come with filters and that was way more than this, lol.

Seems like a stout entry level case. Good to see MSI doing something different.

I've got a few mods going right now that need some holes cut, want to come over and do it for free for me?

Done, but you can't make them in the shape of mudflap girls. This will have to go in the same room as my soon-to-be wife. ;)

BTW take a good look at the space between the motherboard tray and the side panel. There just isn't any space for wiring, holes wouldn't be useful. Size wise its just to small to fit in wire management of that style. Its noticeably smaller than the "normal" mid tower for most people.
