USB 3.0 front panel connectors not working and crappy customer support
28 March 2015
Summary: Other than the USB 3.0 front panel ports not working, this is a really nice case. I called Antec customer service and was left on hold for 3 hours and I finally gave up and hung up. Then I filled out a trouble ticket on the Antec customer support webpage but haven't heard back from Antec. I'll revise my review if Antec can help with the USB 3.0 front panel issue.
This is a nice quiet case with plenty of room to work with

Summary: This is a nice quiet case with plenty of room to work with. I definitely liked the cable management available in the case, allowing me to make the cleanest interior I have done in a computer build. There's plenty of mounting points for additional active cooling, so I bought a couple more of the fans this case comes with. With all of this, my computer remains very quiet and is still running quite cool.
Summary: I had a few minor issues such as the sound dampening on both case panels being curled up. I also had some broken drive bay inserts. I contacted support and 4 weeks later I had 2 new side panels. There wasn't much padding in the package so both side panels were damaged. I contacted support again and suggested they should add more padding. I told them not to bother sending out more panels because after I hammered them out a bit they fit on my case for the most part.
Great case if you want something relatively plain and dead quiet

Summary: This case is great. I have two of them. The understated look is great and it's very very quiet. I replaced the fans with some PWM fans and run them off of a Y-adapter on the aux CPU header of my ASUS Z87 motherboard. The stock fans were quiet but just ran at a constant speed. One thing of note is that the area above the power supply is vented. If you have an older power supply which blows out the rear this won't do much for you.
Summary: Do not buy. The case only has 1 fan and mine was missing 2 side rails for mounting a second optical drive. Antec's customer service is very unprofessional. It did not have a hole for one of the motherboard mounting screws. It attracts a lot of fingerprints. Not a lot of room for cable management. Power button is flimsy. There is some space on the sides of the optical drive. And the case is heavy.
