Good product

Ruebun S., Newegg
21 December 2014
  • Summary: The case is pretty good for the price range. I got it for around 50$. However i didn't like how it barely fit my GTX 970. Keep that in mind it won't fit long cards (11.5 is max). See the problem is the case's design is to have extra cables go to that area by the power supply.
  • Pros: Outside looks good, Fans included, Cable management holes, and Fan controller.
  • Cons: Cables running from USB's, Fan controllers, and etc, leave no space for top first drive bay.

Decent Looks, Good Price

Philip S., Newegg
25 August 2014
  • Summary: Bottom Line: I would buy this case again. Overall, I'm satisfied with this case and what I paid for it. I dock an egg for the flimsiness I would have liked to see a water-cooled solution made for this case rather than having to engineer one that doesn't look like it's meant to be there, so I dock a...
  • Pros: Looks pretty authentic (doesn't feel like it though). All the stuff you need to get to on a regular basis is very accessible. I was even able to mount a water cooling system. HDD fans are a plus to keep air moving in the case. The fan switch on top is a nice touch for quite and performance operat...
  • Cons: I wish the side fan mount was bigger. I'd like to mount a giant case fan and show off the hydro work and a bit more quiet airflow. Although the case is already a bit flimsy especially when nothing is mounted. Although there are 4 5.25" bays, you'll only be able to use 2, maybe 3 since the top mou...

Solid build with small issue

Hongtu W., Newegg
3 May 2014
  • Summary: I always use Antec cases for myself and family. I have used Antec Two Hundred, Antec Three Hundred Illusion. This one is for my new primary desktop and just order another GX500 yesterday.
  • Pros: Solid build, thick material, enough inside space for ATX motherboard and long video card, good cable management capacity, 3 installed fans with speed control. Installed two more front fans for my game rig.
  • Cons: Fan speed control only works on low speed level switch ( I think is on full speed). High and median speed switches doesn't work. Not worth to RMA it. Remove one egg here.

Good overall quality, excellent styling, a few quality issues

Nathanael W., Newegg
23 April 2014
  • Summary: Though the faults are a little annoying, if you like the look of this case, get it. Fans are replaceable, and it's solidly built.
  • Pros: Most owners of this case, like me, got it because of its expensive looking styling on a good budget, and it's a welcome difference in color scheme from all the cases that look like transformers. For the most part, the build quality is great, very sturdy, and roomy enough inside with enough cable ...
  • Cons: 3 things come to mind. First is that the top optical drive bay can't be occupied by a drive because of the wiring for the top USB and audio ports. This means any optical drive will have to be installed in the second bay down. Next, the hard disk mounts, while very easy to snap in and out of the c...

Solid Case

Justin E., Newegg
10 March 2014
  • Pros: Solid case with lots of small features that are nice. Wire management capability is pretty stellar with lots of holes for mother board access.
  • Cons: Not as thick of metal as I would have liked on the front panels, the clasps are kind of janky and the whole front panel is cheap-feeling plastic. Button cover on the top is also kind of cheap.

Great case and good features for its cost

Brett L., Newegg
17 February 2014
  • Summary: I really like this case as far as what it can fit inside of it, and its overall footprint. However, It is just a slight bit too short to fit an EATX board, and will have to go whenever that is upgraded to. It is very close to fitting it, and adding another 1/2 inch or so would do wonders.
  • Pros: The case is smaller, which is something I really looked for, However it can still fit a GTX780 Classified neatly, with the side fan installed. There is plenty of space for cable routing, and the hard drives are easily removable from the back side. The top has a raised fan area for 2x120 or 140 fa...
  • Cons: The front bay covers are very hard to mount on if they come off, but not impossible. The front panel audio cord is too short to reach the pins on my motherboard (by a few inches). The cable routing openings are exposed, and do not have any covering grommets.

Great Price to Feature ratio

Christopher M., Newegg
8 January 2014
  • Summary: This case's style is overwhelming. Which is really the "buy" or "not buy" of the product. I can't imagine anyone who doesn't like the way this case looks thinking the pros outweigh that point. However, if you dig the way this case looks, get it. Its a great case at a great price.
  • Pros: The case is sturdy and spacious where it needs to be. The look is very cool if you're into it. Everything looks right with the style they were trying to achieve. Three huge fans included and installed in the case.
  • Cons: The Molex connector for the fan speed controller (one of the defining features of the case) is junk. The pins move around and it took me 20 minutes of plugging attempts and looking like an idiot for it to finally mate with my PSU power adapter. The expansion slot covers are pop outs, which was a ...

Solid case if you can get it on sale

Jacob W., Newegg
2 January 2014
  • Summary: I got it on sale for $30, and it was a great steal. More than worth the money. If you're paying full price though, I'd look elsewhere. At a Corsair x00R series or a Cooler Master HAF for a similar price point. Even some of the other Antec cases for the same base price are better.
  • Pros: It's a solid case with plenty of airflow if you purchase 3 additional 120's. The fan control is nice and easily accessible, and you can fit thinner 280mm radiators on the top vent. I love the USB ports on the top versus the face as well.
  • Cons: As many have said, it's fairly cheap in construction. Thin metal, sub-par paint, and you cannot use the top 5.25 drive bay. It also only has 4 ports for the fan control, when you can have 6 fans in the system. I'm not a terrible fan of the color scheme, but for $30 it wasn't that bad.

User Review

15 December 2013
  • Summary: For the price, you're not gonna find a case that gets the job down as well as this one.
  • Pros: I got mine for 20 bucks, if I can figure out how to get this rebate to work.., Full metal case lets air flow nicely., Comes with 3 fans already and can have 3 more installed., Plenty of space to hide all wires, even with modular PSU., Thumbscrews are always easier., The HDD bays are surprisingly ...
  • Cons: Metal clips in front are kinda flimsy. One popped out first time I tried to close it, but it goes right back on., There are a bunch of places on the back to organize wires, but the clips are so small that none of the wires even fit? You can cut own slide to slide the wires through it, but it's a ...
