Terrible tower for air flow

Robert M., Newegg
7 September 2012
  • Pros: It looks good. The SSD dock at the top/front is potentially very useful. The front-side mic and headphone jacks are potentially useful...but (see below).
  • Cons: Between my power supply, GTX 570, the CPU heatsink and fan, and the hard disk drive mounting locations, there really is not a lot of room for good air flow. (I blame this mostly on the PSU cords.) Having filters on the front fans is great, but no filter on the side panel air duct seems to defeat ...

Decent if you get newer Rev.

John L., Newegg
25 July 2012
  • Summary: Decent case for the money. I chopped mine up with mods and it works great!!
  • Pros: Awesome airflow and cable management ports in the newest rev. Filters on front 120mm fleet release bay fans. Top hot swap for 2.5" drives.
  • Cons: PSU mounts upside down. Top fan is to close to CPU power cable to run behind MoBo and thru a cutout I added. Wake up Antec!!

Just a meh case

John L., Newegg
16 May 2012
  • Summary: Bought for short money. Opened the box and was not pleased. Reselling and grabbing a Corsair 650D.
  • Pros: -Airflow -Black in and out -Top SSD hotswap
  • Cons: -Cable Management sucks. A non modular PSU would be a nightmare to try and clean up. -PSU mounting. Blowing hot air at your GPU. Bad news. -Drive mounting sucks. Antec didn't learn from others mistakes on orientation. -Cheap construction. Flimsy side panels.

Solid Case

Robert C., Newegg
20 April 2012
  • Summary: Should have made more room in the back panel so you can have more wire management in it
  • Pros: Solid case looks amazing lots of room to work with good for a beginners at building their first computer
  • Cons: Not much room for wire management so it makes your computer look really messy and clustered.

  • Pros: + Looks amazing + Cable management + 4 Fans with adjustable speeds + Dust Filter + All Black
  • Cons: - PSU faces upwards - USB and Audio cables are too short - Not tool less

Im happy

  • Summary: Solid case, it was a great experience.
  • Pros: Excellent case, so easy to build with. When I threw together my current setup, the case accommodated everything. And it did so with no hassle. The case is beautiful, and all the LED's that I've put in are well seen, as well as the LED fans that come with it. Good circulation, with and overclocked...
  • Cons: Case didn't come with 2.5 inch screws, but it does have instructions on how to install one in the case(But you also have the front mounted SSD holder, so not a big deal). Kind of annoying to access the CD drive, since you have to unhinge it, but if you use it a lot you could just remove it. By fa...

philip m., Newegg

  • Summary: it's a shame. I loved this case even though the I/O didn't work. I mean its a steel case. So tough. And it looks phenomenal, but yea. it's a sad day. probly just gonna buy a cooler master HAF or something.
  • Pros: very nice airflow fans all have controllers good sized looks great fits both my 570's in it
  • Cons: *well, my front I/O ports were borked(from the beginning) *my front USB ports were borked(from the beginning) *my little hard drive indicator lights burnt out *power button doesn't work great. just started being sketchy. have to push it really hard to get it to respond *same with the reset button...
