Borrowed from another forum. Best Buy has it's Rocketfish brand case(made by Lian-Li) online for $119.99, but supposedly in store they're on clearance for $71.00. This is the closest match to it on Lian-Li's site.

Edit: reports from people on EVGA's forum say that the in store price on these is now $47.99. Definitely a killer deal at that price.

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

After looking up the price on one of those one day (as in the employee price) it really brings the rape that is buying a normal Lian-Li into perspective...Oddly enough i didn't even notice that it was made by them when looking in RSS.

Too bad they didn't go after the same quality of a company for the Rocket Fish 700w PSU :lol: They sold out after every shipment back when they were on sale for $99, last time I looked they had 8 open box on the shelf. :) (The one an idiot friend bought went up in smoke and fire running a system that was tested and ran fine for over a week on an old 350w Antec (well all but the 680i board it toasted), can we say Ultra X2 style quality?)

It does seem like a pretty good deal though...

Would not supprise me at all as it's still well above what they pay for them.
