    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.
