Low Cost

ARTHUR A., Newegg
15 July 2015
  • Summary: Box was damaged and back of the right side panel had a ding and paint was flaked off. I don't know if this was a shipping, warehousing, or manufacture problem.
  • Pros: Nice price for a back-up computer build. Plenty of space inside for cables and a large video board. You have plenty of slots for moving the internal 3.5" drives around to clear video boards. I was happy to see the front panel connectors were long enough to go behind the panel that the motherboard...
  • Cons: No manual - There is a half page diagram with features. When you go to the web site you find there is no PDF manual for this case. I downloaded other manuals with similar configurations and used them (NSK3480, NSK4482).

Great Case

TD B., Newegg
4 August 2014
  • Summary: I think it's a good inexpensive case.
  • Pros: I like the style and it does what it's supposed to. I had no issues putting it together. Nice lightweight case with enough room for all my components. Metal is thin, but it gets the job done at low cost... I'm satisfied with my purchase.
  • Cons: None that I could find.

Decent cheap case

Stephen G., Newegg
10 April 2014
  • Summary: Even in my mondo bag of spare computer screws I don't have a screw long enough to pass through the fan frame and into the case. Haven't a clue why they'd do it that way since fan mounting has been standardized for a very long time.
  • Pros: Cheap. Looks nice. I like power supply top mounting - not at the bottom.
  • Cons: My only complaint is that the front panel fan mount holes are actually small threaded holes the same size as motherboard mounting screws instead of the standard wider holes that accommodate the normal fan mounting screw that bites into the fan frame. Case did not include screws that would work.

Looks good

Kenneth M., Newegg
10 February 2014
  • Summary: Here at our office we build our own business desktop CAD machines and unfortunately we are having a hard time finding a case that doesn't have all kinds of enthusiast features like neon lights and water cooling ports.
  • Pros: Front looks good. Placement of the I/O ports and buttons at top is nice. Looks like it could be a decent plain business PC case (which is why we bought it).
  • Cons: My biggest problem is Antec marketing describing this as "sturdy SGCC steel". While the finish looks nice the steel is thin and the frame is weak. When standing up right it doesn't sit flat, and instead rocks back and forth to the sides. The frame will distort and bend easily just by picking it u...

UPGRADED TO A '5' STAR

Laurel C., Newegg
10 January 2014
  • Summary: I gave this case two bad ratings. After changing the motherboard settings, I discovered a pcie setting was disabling USB 3.0 from the motherboard, so it was NOT a defective USB panel on the Antec case. Sorry for the bad ratings, Antec.
  • Pros: Exceptional design for the money. All the great features of a high-end case in a small, attractive form factor. Good ventilation with plenty of fan options (no fans in top of case though). I bought it for a Hackintosh build.
  • Cons: None for everyday use. I am overclocking a SB 2500k @ 4.4 ghz using only air to cool it with and am having no heat issues whatsoever. I did install a large fan on the front of the case to pull in cold air up from the bottom. Not for extreme overclocking, but standard o/c does very well.

Downgraded to a 1 star

Laurel C., Newegg
5 January 2014
  • Summary: Have to buy another case which will add up to well over $100. Could have bought a premium case for this price!
  • Pros: Kept this in the case for over a month. Now it is not eligible for an RMA, so the case is worthless without the front USB panel working.
  • Cons: Front USB panel USB ports do not work.

BAD USB PANEL

Laurel C., Newegg
31 December 2013
  • Summary: This should have been a five star rating, but the bad USB Panel brought it down to a '2' Hope Antec will make this right and send me another USB panel for this otherwise great case.
  • Pros: Great layout, good airflow, good design, attractive.
  • Cons: USB PANEL did not work most of the time in USB 2, none in USB 3. Installed using a known good motherboard, the case's USB connector was defective. The USB cable is a 'dual USB' connector with one 2.0 and one 3.0 connecter on the same cable.
