Nearly Great Case
21 December 2010
Summary: When I first saw this case, I just had to purchase one. Especially when I read how much better it was performing in overclocking situations in terms of heat dissipation. Build quality and aesthetics are great. It is both heavy and durable. The airflow is better than I expected. If you turn the fans to high it sounds like a wind tunnel (when I first purchased this I was in a college dorm room and the white noise was great for drowning out noises).
Summary: Love the case and you will too except if something doesn't work and the motherboard tries to let you know by giving a beep code signal. But wait, THERE IS NO INTERNAL SPEAKER IN THE CASE so how are you suppose to find out! This can be a big problem when it wont post (bootup) and you dont know whats wrong. I am not talking about normal speakers, just the 4 pin speaker that connects to the motherboard that every case normally has.
Summary: I purchased this as part of a PC build project. On first impressions it was a decent case. A couple to note are that the expansion cages are a little flimsy when using fixing screws to install hard disks and the like, also this case coul do with a better cable management system, a few zip ties just aren't enough. Also if you add additional fans, a decent graphics card, more than two HDD's and optical drives the interior space is very very cramped for working in.
Summary: When I first looked at this product about half a year ago, I thought it was a decent looking case. It looked spacious, so I spoke to a friend who has one and, although he was more than pleased, I wasn't. Probably the two things that drag this case down are the price and the fact that the PSU mount is NOT VENTILATED. I've noticed such a tendency with their better models too, come on Antec it's only common sense!
