Love this case

Steve M., Newegg
16 July 2015
  • Pros: It's huge and roomy, which is what I wanted for this job. Lots of fans, great airflow, great layout, great front controls, hot-swappable external 2.5" drive, good cable management. I'm using this as a server workhorse and data store. I have 8 3TB HDD drives and 2 SSDs in it. Everything runs very ...
  • Cons: Nothing comes to mind.

User Review

  • Pros: One of the best cases i have bought. Built in cable management hides most of the cables for a very clean look. If you set all of the fans on low they are very quiet.
  • Cons: Only down side is when you start to back in all of the cables the space behind the motherboard and the side of the case gets very tight. You have to be careful not to cause too much pressure from the cables and risk bending the motherboard. Only other thing is it would be nice to order more hot s...

Antec DF-85 (Headphone Jack Fix)

PRESTON C., Newegg
12 September 2013
  • Summary: (I literally did this 5 minutes prior to writing this review and I want to share this with all of you out there in the same predicament) How to fix the headphone jack: Now for starts, if you've had this case for 1+ years, you've probably noticed by now that there's a considerable amount of plastic...
  • Pros: - Beautiful design; looks absolutely sinister with its red-on-black finish. - Red front/top/rear fans. The front set have red LEDs to continue that sinister look. - Front fans also have removable filters, which can be accessed by "opening" the fans (do this by pressing the left edge inwards and p...
  • Cons: - USB 3.0 Input: You basically have to run a semi-thick cable from the front of the case, to the back of the case and into your motherboard's USB 3.0 connector, so it's more like an extension cord to the front. - 3.5mm Headphone Jack: There's a design flaw with this case which basically makes ins...

Solid Case

Anonymous, Newegg
20 May 2013
  • Pros: This case has great Air Flow. Three fans in the front, two up top, and two in the back really keep things nice and cool. In fact, I'll go as far as saying its a bit overkill. In terms of Antec, this case also has great interior space. While still not on par with other manufactures, things will no...
  • Cons: I dropped an egg for my only real issue with the case. The two 120mm fans in the back are stacked directly on top of each other. This allows only 1 liquid cooling radiator to be installed. It is a bit frustrating, as I am really think about purchasing an ARES II. Now i need to see if the tubes wi...

Great case

Thomas K., Newegg

  • Pros: This is the third computer I have built and for the price its by far the best case I have used.
  • Cons: Haven't been able to figure out how to get a fan on the side door. Tried several fans but not sure how it is supposed to fit on there. Did some research on it but I guess I just don't get it.

great case

1 May 2013
  • Pros: This is a great case. I use it for my software raid 5 system. The only minor things I would comment on are: 1. change transparent window on left hand side to solid metal (they still could have vents for extra fan). Majority of people do not want to see extra blinking lights (some fans like Zalman...
