Lots Of Room In This Case

AM1666, Mwave.com
17 August 2010
  • Summary: Another winner for those who need the space for drives and fans.
  • Pros: A big case with plenty of room for multiple drives and multiple fans. Antec quality and support.Plenty of cables for the drives.
  • Cons: Maybe too big for a simple system. Could use a bigger power supply for gamer systems.

Works Well

Alex C., Newegg
27 July 2009
  • Pros: Installed in as a small business server box with 24/7 ontime. Has performed well. Has enough room for four hard drives. I might have gone for the titan if I thought I would need more. Has enough room to adequately cool the drives and the motherboard. Extra room to install some fans for the front. They do not come with it. The power supply has behaved well. The front faceplate and the side plate even come off without too much fuss. Well designed.
  • Cons: The top hard drive slot might have been a little too close to my motherboard. It was difficult to get the SATA connectors right. Of course, that also has to do with the motherboard, and is simply an error on my part.

Excellent SOHO Server Case

Jack R., Newegg
18 January 2009
  • Pros: Good size (not too big, but big enough). Solid feel (not flimsy anwhere). Cooling provisions are Outstanding! Very, very quiet in my configuration. Included PS is excellent and provides connectors for (almost) everything. 3.5" drive bays are loaded from the front, making power and data connections on the rear very easy. Good expandability, even includes a possible external 3.5 bay for a floppy, tape drive, or media card reader. 3 USB connectors on the front panel is u...
  • Cons: PS only has 4 SATA power connectors (on 2 pigtails), requiring an adapter for an SATA optical drive if you have more than 2 HDDs (It might be possible to install the optical drive in the lowest 5.25" slot, and use the same SATA pigtail to power an HDD in the top 3.5" slot, but I couldn't try that). Accessing the drive bays still requires removing the side panel. No front panel Firewire or eSATA connections.

Nice Case but Server??? Not

Ross W., Newegg
4 February 2008
  • Pros: Well I bought this knowing I couldn't install a dual Xeon Server board. For a regular or standard MB this is a great case. You can remove the 3 1/2 drive bay and use it for a 5.25 drive. I have a DVD-RW and one SUPERMICRO CSE-M35T-1 Hot-Swapable SATA HDD Enclosure that holds 5 Sata Drive and uses 3 5.25 slots.
  • Cons: It is not a true Server case, it is ok for a personal file server or other type of personal server but it doesn't except the big Xeon boards. It will hold any single socket system out there but not dual socket boards.

Great fit for ASUS Server Motherboard

Brad L., Newegg
23 January 2008
  • Pros: Despite previous reviewer's remarks, this case fit my ASUS Server Motherboard with a little room to spare. The PSU works well and the cables included are very handy being round cables. The side-strips included for installing/removing hard-drives and optical drives are an incredible boon and saved me lots of time on installation.
  • Cons: None, it's a great case.

Russell C., Newegg
3 August 2007
  • Pros: Very quiet, easy to setup, Heavy (don't drop on your toe). No Door to break. Decent PSU.
  • Cons: Doesn't have a removeable MB tray, bur really it's not needed. Not so much a con really, but only thing that I would have liked it to have.

Less is More

Anonymous, Newegg
17 March 2007
  • Pros: This case is very sleek looking. I am using it for my Gaming PC. I am not into having a lit up case that you spot from the moon. This case is perfect for what I needed it for. Excellent price for what you get, and it's an Antec! Plus is comes with a 550W Truepower 2.0 Power Supply. Its also very quiet. Sitting right next to it and I can barely hear it.
  • Cons: The front LEDs are a little bright. This case sits in my room so at night they light up the room. Very minor and I have gotten used to it.

Best Case Ever

Randall K., Newegg
9 March 2007
  • Pros: Easy door removal. Optional fan mountings in the right places. Good power supply. SLI ready. Great appearance. Drive bays very easy to get to and maintain. Motherboard offsets partially installed which helped line up the rest of the holes. Good documentation.
  • Cons: Could have used one more 3.5 inch bay for card reader but some readers are also available in 5.25 inch but that is very minor.

Better than the Performance One

Stephanie R., Newegg
21 December 2006
  • Summary: Heavy Steel Construction.
  • Pros: It's a great case, very well built, nice professional looking design, front USB, IEEE, Audio, lots of fan slots. 550W power suppily included! I went to best buy and took a look at Performance One case, they are not that impressive. But this Atlas case is much better looking and offers convenience of a server case.
  • Cons: Some material is a bit cheap... for example, the left side cover is so thin and it wobbles even when the screw is fully tightened...

Makes a great gaming case too!

CAMILLE F., Newegg
1 December 2006
  • Pros: Yes I said a great gaming case. Although this case may be rather plain and less glitzy than most "gamer" type cases out there, it still has a nice look to it. It may appeal to more seasoned gamers like myself. It has ample room, a great 550 watt PSU, and awesome cooling ability. Utilizing a 120mm tri-cool rear fan, and two optional 90mm fans up front. It also has removible hard drive cages, with rubber mounts for added vibration resistance, and most importantly Antec'...
