MSI Barricade Case

titleWe recently had a chance to take a look at the MSI Ravager case, a case that is marketed towards people who want something a little flashing. Today we are going to look at another offering from MSI called the Barricade. This time around the Barricade has more subtle styling for those who may not be looking for a case for your youngest cousin or baby brother. It has been interesting to see MSI branch out a bit into different areas such as cases and SSDs. It should be interesting to see how this case compares to the previous one and how it stands on its own.

just to make sure noone will have issues fitting a drive if they need one.

I myself stopped installing drives in my own pc's years ago

@twodavez Some of us still burn physical media as archaic as that sounds.

As far as the case goes, it looks like it is heading in a nice direction but just seems wholly unfinished in its execution. With the USB3 pass through and the lack of rubber grommets in the interior it just seems like a few little things could have made this a better offering. That price range is starting to get very crowed with quality cases these days.

i'm slowly wondering why we even put CD Roms' on PC's anyway. JJ's got a USB one that he uses for his Mods to load Windows and Motherboard updates, but that's about all you need it for and i'm agreeing.

sorry to hijack the thread on a good review of a interesting looking case...

Looks nice but I prefer red over blue.
