Thread: WANTED: Beige/white ATX midtower case

  1. Default WANTED: Beige/white ATX midtower case

    Hi,

    I want to put my Skylake build into an older beige tower. I have the complete system and just looking for a good condition ATX white/beige case. It must have front panel pins that are standard ATX (so those legendary Dell Dimension XPS D/R/T series are a no). I am in Long Island, NY if that helps.

    I picked one of these up on Amazon recently. Not bad price. It also comes with AT IO backplate (removable for the ATX IO plates)

    A while back I picked up 5 or 6 new old white/beige cases on ebay that were AT or ATX. Problem is once you pop the AT panel off you are stuck using ATX I/O bezels since you can't put the AT one back.

    Nope, was a couple years ago. He had quite a few and I purchased 5 or 6 over a years time.

    JB Weld :P Or hot glue. But yeah, the one I listed above is the "snap off" type that isn't friction held.

    Just took a pile to recycling; still a few left but packing & shipping (from Toronto) are a PITA and expensive these days.

    I found one on Nexhi, this one

    https://www.nexhi.com/en/nexhi-case-...id-tower-beige

    Looks like I got the last one they had. Same case as this https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16811162041
    I rigged the front panel of a Dell Dimension XPS T500 tower to work with standard ATX motherboards (Dell sealed off a pin, putting a needle in it and removing the filler makes it fit and work perfectly on my ATX Z170 board). So I guess I'll just transplant the Dell components into that generic case I bought and put my main rig in the Dell case because I have always loved those cases. Also had to order a smaller CPU cooler and some 92mm PWM fans.
