SilentiumPC has announced its new PC case today, the Regnum RG1, the first value-oriented chassis with a dual-chamber internal layout which aims to dramatically improve both airflow and cable management. There is also a roomy interior with plenty of room for components, radiators, drives all for just £24.
The Regnum RG1 is compatible with ATX motherboards, long power supplies, graphics cards up to 380mm in length and CPU coolers up to 160mm tall. It also offers two external 5.25” drive bays as well as two 3.5 and two 2.5” internal drive bays for different SSD and HDD configurations.
Being a budget case, there are some cut backs, the RG1 only comes with one 120mm case fan but it does include dust filters for all intakes and there is room for up to six 120mm fans if you require the cooling. There is also mounting space for a 120mm and 240mm radiator if you happen to want to use an AIO liquid cooling unit.

KitGuru Says: On paper, this looks like a fairly decent basic chassis, especially for the price. Are any of you currently planning a system build? How much do you normally spend on a PC case?
