Summary: AMD AM3+ 6300 processor. Gigabyte 970 motherboard. Older AMD low to midrange video card. Antec 380W PS. I haven't had cooling problems but I would expect that you would need to add a side door fan if using a high wattage CPU and video card.
Pros: Clean, simple, pleasing appearance. Good materials and build quality. Quiet. Typical Antec durability. Worth a few dollars more than the cheaper stuff in my almost 20 years of building PC's.
Cons: No provision for a front air intake fan. Unusual SSD mount on the floor of the case . . . I didn't use it.
Summary: Very nice but Antec has lost their minds and quit making all their good cases so I was forced to use this one until I could find a replacement for the NSK4482. This case is very nice looking and is very well built, but you have to add a Power Supply and it is much more difficult to work in than the...
Summary: Very good case, Well built, easy tool less (Kind of) you still need a screw driver to install hard drive and mother board. This case had all the connections that was needed by my mother board which I think it was the most important factor for me other than the Power supply which is also rated energy...
Summary: I have purchased 6 of these cases over the last 6 years and ALL is well. I bought the <front panel update USB3.0 harness> to update the older two enclosures and they also work fine. Newer units, of course, already are USB3.0. Got those directly from Antec phone call..$15 each...
All time favorite case. Great solution for system builders

Summary: All time favorite case. Great solution for system builders. Only 1 complaint which keeps it from being the perfect case. The drive bays are stap in trays. This is great if you are not shipping but we do, worldwide. They do not hold the drives up during during shipping so we zip tie them in.
I've got to say I'm really disappointed. Doesn't Antec QC the PSU before sending it ...

Summary: This is my second Antec case. My Sonata I has been in place for years, so I bought the Sonata III to build a new computer. I installed everything and was ready to install the OS however, the power supply is dead. I've got to say I'm really disappointed.
Summary: The case looks good, looks like it is functional, but one major flaw. When you put the side panel on, there is no front lip or latch on it. I placed the side panel on the case and used the latch to close the panel against the case.
