Interesting case setup

Christopher M., Newegg
12 December 2013
  • Summary: In my opinion, this is a cool case to build a HTPC. It also makes for a good basic PC. It's cool to show to your friends and has an interesting look. If you're the type who's a little out of the box, this is a good way for you to go.
  • Pros: Let's start with the obvious one. Breaths great! I use this to hold my mini-ITX HTPC (Home Theater PC). My old case was this little black box that just cooked the computer hardware. It didn't have the room for decent fans. I moved to this case and had about 20C drop in operating temperature. Perf...
  • Cons: Main issue for this computer was that the size and shape of the case greatly reduces what you can put into the expansion PCI-E slots. I had a TV tuner in this computer and it doesn't fit anymore. I will need to get a USB tuner to continue recording shows. If you're considering putting a video car...

  • Cons: Cannot mount standard ITX power supplies.

Cara C., Newegg
22 April 2010
  • Pros: Love the design
  • Cons: I thought the the roll cage style fan housingn was metal ... under Case Material it stated "0.8mm cold rolled steel" under specs, insted it is made out of plastic. not much protection for your MB and CPU if something falls on it. Too much moeny for plastic! glad I got it on sale. even on sale i t...

Wowzer!

Ryan D., Newegg
27 March 2010
  • Summary: It'd be awesome if these were stack-able! You could create a wind-tunnel for your Atom cluster :)
  • Pros: Well, it goes without saying that air flow is not an issue with this case. I can reach into the machine, touch the heatsink, and it's at room temperature. Sure, it's an Intel Atom D510 CPU, but still I've felt some heat come off those when placed in confined spaces. Very easy installation. Most o...
  • Cons: The only thing I didn't like about the case was cable management. They include zip ties, but I hate using those in a case. I'm someone who's constantly tinkering with my tech toys, and I don't want to have to cut those away each time. Still, with mini-itx, you can't expect a roomy case.

Next Gen Computing

FindingAaron, Newegg
26 March 2010
  • Summary: If I had the money, I would build these for my entire family. I have never been disappointed by Antec, and this case more than delivers.
  • Pros: Design: Antec delivers once again with a design that is aesthetically pleasing and still functional. Airflow: I have an completely fanless Via ITX motherboard, and this case keeps it nice and cool, even under high load. Size: Sure, it's not as small as some ITX cases, but it more than makes up fo...
  • Cons: Can only mount 2.5 drives. The documentation about the side drive moutings was unclear as to the size. I had a few extra drives about, but I am budgeting now to replace the two 300gb, 3 1/2 drives. Power supply had to be reversed for my motherboard, and no instructions were included with the case...

Skeletor Rocks!

Chris C., Newegg
17 February 2010
  • Summary: Huge CPU cooling towers are not needed due to the giant system fan blowing strait down.
  • Pros: Big, quiet fan keeps everything cool. Looks great (if you are a bachelor). Easy access to parts and connections. Plenty of room for crossfire/SLI, hard drives, etc.
  • Cons: Can fit mid-sized coolers, but not the towers. If you have a wife, will need to keep this in a cabinet.

Very unique

David M., Newegg
11 January 2010
  • Summary: I wanted something unique to use as a media PC for my living room. I decided on the mini skeleton, because let's face it, can you really get more unique than this thing? I took it apart and repainted it using garnet red and a light gold for the trim. Came out awesome.
  • Pros: Very unique, quiet, great air circulation
  • Cons: Cable management nightmare

skeletons on the desk

David N., Newegg
15 December 2009
  • Summary: would be nice to have other colors than just blue for the fan.
  • Pros: very unigue case, quite fan: you can feel the air move even when it is on low. Drives are easy to install, remove even without using the side rails. Quick and easy access to any thing you add.
  • Cons: newegg says doesnt come with a power supply and it does.

Neat Little Case - HAS PS UNIT!!

Rachael B., Newegg
12 December 2009
  • Summary: More room would have been good and an integrated slimline optical drive.
  • Pros: Funky Design. I feel like a mad scientist with this sitting next to my TV. Cables and lights oh my! Seems like efficient cooling due to lots of cool air spilling over the edges of the case.
  • Cons: Even though the tray slides out for installation of the mobo, it is still a PITA. the cables are too short. The Front panel board bumps into the power cables on my ASUS AT3B7A-I. My hands seemed too big to route the cables and they should have been sleeved for a more sleek look. Not a very protec...

WOW just wow

Andrew L., Newegg
6 November 2009
  • Summary: Zotac IONITX-D-E 9300 LG CH08LS10 blu-ray drive I wanted a media center/lite gaming rig to keep at my girlfriends place, and was interested in the big brother version for my next build. The LG drive is too big to fit with the case fan so I removed it (just blows on the back of the drive anyway).
  • Pros: looks of course quiet (see other thoughts) small size lay out
  • Cons: none that I can think of
