Without the name it's not counterfeit--you're probably looking at
something made to look like it.

I've a Rosewill brand case Newegg sells which strongly resembles that,
a sturdy but heavy Antec 300 that's just not quite up to the only all-
aluminum Antec Lanboy, I know of, revived and now strongly resembling
a startling quieter 45watt version of an AMD I setup. In fact if that
Antec Lanboy were weighed in on the quietness scale, I could literally
lift it with one finger.
