NSK4482B

James P., Newegg
17 April 2015
  • Summary: best low cost solution if you need or want silence i lined it with thick roofing rubber inside but i'm thinking it was just as quiet or very close when it was stock
  • Pros: this is the best deal out there super quiet and reliable can run a 1 or 2 gig video card maybe a little more with the 380 green power easiest case ever to work on and make upgrades in this price range pop off the top lift off the sides and you're inside not a gaming case great for office or nice ...
  • Cons: tight with a full ATX but workable hard drive cage is awkward and fixed position good excuse for you to go with ssd the little plastic springs on the power button will break very easy to fix i stuffed little pieces of foam in the gap behind the tabs and the button has worked as new again for 4 ye...

Its the button

Robert S., Newegg
16 July 2014
  • Summary: After years of buying Antec products I am changing to another manufacturer. The quality control has gone down as well as customer support, also had a problem getting a rebate, ignored emails, a women from their office even hung up the phone on me when I was trying to get it resolved.
  • Pros: it's your average case.
  • Cons: I have bought hundreds of Antec case over the years and most of all them the power button breaks. The comments here about the button is correct, cheap plastic.

Poor Power Button Design

James S., Newegg
23 April 2014
  • Summary: I get around the power button problem, I would unplug the reset button cable and plug the power cable to it.
  • Pros: A sturdy case. Lots of room for hard & DVD/CD drives. I like the hard drive mounting. 380 watt power supply good enough for most builds. The flat front is better than the earlier models of the NSK cases, when trying to plug in USB devices. Front USB 3.0.
  • Cons: The power button has a design flaw. [I have complained to Antec, but never heard anything back.] Have used hundreds of the NSK cases, but quit getting them because of the power button issues. In several cases the power button did NOT work right out of the box, which is frustrating to build a syst...

They Used to Make Them Better

Ryan H., Newegg
4 December 2013
  • Summary: I'm not sure if Antec is outsourcing for the manufacturer of this case now, but whatever the case, the quality appears to be lower than what it used to be 3+ years ago. I have purchased 4 of these cases over the years, and I am disappointed to see that the quality has gone down so much.
  • Pros: Rubber grommets for hard drive bays. Nice layout, plenty of space Good Power Supply Professional Look
  • Cons: The front panel used to be painted and had a nice look and feel. Now it appears to be straight unpainted black plastic. I know it sounds silly, but this makes the case look and feel cheaper. Received slightly damage. Although it didn't appear to have any real cosmetic or function effect, on inspe...

Faulty Power Button Design

Joseph V., Newegg
30 July 2013
  • Summary: This debacle made my company look less reputable. It's hard enough competing with the mass manufacturers, touting quality and longevity without having customers calling up saying they think their machine is dead.
  • Pros: Quiet, light, but stout, strong case, decent power supply (better than entry-level) for most builds, lots of room in the case for air-flow and drives. No frills, but easy to work on. Rounded edges on everything (no sliced fingers). Nice large case fan to help reduce noise with variable speed adju...
  • Cons: Terrible power switch design. I've built nearly 100 machines with this case and in the past year several of them have had this failed power button issue. I only got warranty satisfaction out of Antec once and even that was like pulling teeth and took weeks. I ended up repairing the buttons myself...

Switcher-Roo

Eric P., Newegg
22 January 2013
  • Summary: Overall a nice case. It is a little funky to take the top off and then then 2 sides. And you have to watch when you put the sides back on they go on properly. I paid less than the 95 dollars I have seen listed. 95 dollars is too much money for this case in today's case choices.
  • Pros: The case has all rolled edges and is actually designed. I took the entire case apart which was easy to do. And I could see the true fit and finish. The front comes off with 6 flexible tabs and you can get to the power switch and put in a new one. You do not have to throw the case away. Antec will...
  • Cons: The system really wants a total SATA build as IDE cables are fussy trying to reach the upper bays for a DVD. The upper horizontal cross member (stiffener between the two sides) really needs more relief to pass the cables up to the top bays. The 380 Watt Power supply has 2 rails (17/17 Amps) and w...

Tried and true-this case is around for the duration

Daniel H., Newegg
5 October 2012
  • Summary: I have an MSI 890GXM-G65 with an AMD triple-core AM3+ cpu (neither available any more). After upgrading to an SSD and relocating the case to the top of my desk, the stock AMD fan was way too LOUD! So I installed a ZALMAN CNPS9900ALED CPU cooler.
  • Pros: I bought this two years ago, in 2010. The case fan is adjustable and very quiet, the ps fan is completely silent. I just upgraded some components this week, and was pleased to see this same case is still available and going strong. Access and build quality are really impressive. This may be the l...

Professional Case

Timothy D., Newegg
11 July 2012
  • Pros: Quality power supply, good air flow, sturdy metal, professional appearance, modest footprint. This makes a great case for machines in a professional settings. I've built five machines using this case. All are operating well.
  • Cons: I can't think of one.
