Pretty Good case

Eddie L., Newegg
11 April 2013
  • Summary: I attempted SLI with to gtx 560's and its not even close at least 3 inches to short.
  • Pros: Comes with 4 fans and has a spot for another directly in front of my GTX 680 fans also have washable screen filter on the fans the sit in front of the hard drives. Very easy to install hdds or ssd's at later dates.
  • Cons: The headphone and mic jack cable for the front is very short and barely reaches to its designated spot on my motherboard. SLI configuration is impossible without leaving this unplugged, replacing this or re-wiring it to make it longer. This is something I really do not want to do.

Seems pretty small

Kenneth H., Newegg
5 April 2013
  • Pros: Looks good aesthetically. Seems to have good air flow throughout.
  • Cons: It seems pretty small. Everything inside is a fairly tight fit. I wanted to get a heatsink to replace my stock one, but I don't think I can fit one. Part of this is my own fault, getting a micro mobo, but I still don't think a lot of heatsinks would fit this case.

Fans Break easy

Jason M., Newegg
7 March 2013
  • Summary: Would buy another Antec makes great products. Now just have to call them to see what the warranty process is for getting a replacement fan.
  • Pros: Great Case, Several fans.
  • Cons: However the fan on top started to whine after 2 months and a blade broke off. The fan on top had to be unplugged due to the broken blade causing the fan to be unbalanced even more.

Case is fine, don't expect Antec to cooperate

Drew H., Newegg
29 November 2012
  • Summary: Overall the case isn't worth more than $40 or so. In my opinion, white LED fans look flat out ugly on a black case. Yes, I though the classy black and white look would look cool. It doesn't. Hopefully the red LED fans I've ordered will look better.
  • Pros: It's a case. It's sturdy, and has fans. Like the top dock, as well as optional bottom docks behind the fans
  • Cons: While it does feel sturdy, it's made of cheap plastic. I would NEVER pay the full $100 for it, but I was glad to pay what I though would be $60 with a $30 rebate. Upon receiving the case, I promptly cut out the UPC code off of the box, and put it in an envelop with the other documentation Antec a...

Please Fix your Pictures to show BIG IMPROVEMENT!

Yan D., Newegg
16 November 2012
  • Summary: Not very heavy. and there is no air intake for PSU. if you installed PSU first, Please be careful when you install other parts. Don't let small screws fall into PSU!
  • Pros: besides all the good things you can learn from other reviews. there is a very big improvement that not even mentioned and no pictures. The whole product line is introduced in 2010. No cable management at that time. Now the new disign has severals holes in the motherboard panel, and the depth betw...
  • Cons: the case itself is not thin. 0.6mm is almost industrial standard for this price range. but since the side panel has a big plastic windows, the metal is not as solid as the back panel.

Update!

ERIC K., Newegg
23 October 2012
  • Summary: All in all, it's a very good case. So, if newegg has it for sale for $49 after rebate, or even $59 w/o rebate, it's a great case. And really cool to see all of your components working. In my case, I need to work on cabling! LOL!
  • Pros: I had an issue with the lights. I read online that someone mentioned about the molex plugs could be the issue. So, I re-examined it, and found out that one of the plugs had a missing stem, so I took it out, re-plugged it into a molex into the psu, and viola', it worked! Looks awesome! Lots of roo...
  • Cons: Can't put any more fans in it. :( Granted, it does have 2 in the front, one on top, and one in the back for a total of 4. It's good, but it would be nice to add more. Oh, almost forgot, you can add another one on the clear window.

Antec Case

ERIC K., Newegg
23 October 2012
  • Summary: Kinda weird, because I have another Antec case, no problems. Let's see how Antec helps me out
  • Pros: Looks awesome! Got a decent price on it.
  • Cons: Fans/lights are dead. Tried every kind of situation, and none of them work. I'm not about to return it, would cost me more than the case it self, but would like to see Antec send me another one, or some solution.

Good Case

Constantin P., Newegg
18 October 2012
  • Summary: would buy this case again, specially for the 50$ deal I got it.
  • Pros: Very happy with this case so far. While it's basic it has 4 surprisingly quiet adjustable fans, that I can run on slow the whole time. Low noise, nice design.
  • Cons: I wish the front Mic worked, but that is because I bought a MoBo that does not support extra audio hookups, regardless, I am surprised the hookups for the front panel are still primitive and unchanged from 1995. Have some trouble plugging in the USB in front as well due to the bulkiness of the pl...

Great Value (With Rebate/Sale)

Anonymous, Newegg
9 October 2012
  • Summary: This is an amazing case. I highly recommend it. Your friends will envy you, and once that girl from across the street see's this Slick White LED machine from across the way, You might just leave the Friendzone.
  • Pros: So many good things to say about this case.. -An absolute steal at $45 (After $30 Mail In & $25 Off) -Excellent building materials. The Steel is strong, You'll find the sides aren't bendy like typical low-cost cases -Good quality Mobo Standoff's/Screws, some cheaper brands often pack stripped sta...
  • Cons: What I was able to get cost-wise for this case makes it an absolute steal, but even then I was comfortable paying the cost without the MIR. Wish List: -I wish there was more than 2 Hot-Swap bays (By the way, the bracket which does the Hot-Swap can be moved up or down, 2 Screws secure it..Super ea...
