Antec Sonata IV Mid-Tower Case Review

Hi Tech Legion
15 May 2011
  • Summary: Performance of the Antec Sonata IV was excellent in all aspects. The Sonata IV was near silent in operation, yet still maintained good temperatures inside the case. The included 620 watt power supply never faltered and supplies plenty of power for a mainstream build. Installation was easy and all finish pieces assembled correctly. There is no questioning that Antec has turned out a beautiful case in the Sonata IV.
  • Pros: Excellent Noise Absorption For Near Silent Computing, Impeccable Fit and Finish, Engineering and Layout Make Installation Easy, Configurable Three Chamber Design To Tailor Component Airflow, Excellent Airflow With Many Flow/Noise Balancing Options, Three Speed Fan Control For Cooling/Silence Balance, Top Quality Materials Used In Every Component
  • Cons: No Opening In Motherboard Tray To Accommodate Easy CPU Cooler Mounting, Fan Can Get Loud On Highest Setting

Antec Sonata IV Computer Case

Benchmark Reviews

  • Conclusion: The performance of this case was good. I did not notice a huge increase in temperatures between idle and load on my CPU. My idle/load temps for my Phenom II 1080T were 24/36 degrees Celsius. Over time, and after a long gaming session, however, I still have cause for concern that air is not being circulated correctly throughout the Sonata IV. The Appearance of the Sonata IV is stunning.
  • Pros: Great Looking, USB 3.0 Support, Very Quiet, Included 620 watt PSU, Case can be locked for security, Included 120mm Tri-Cool fan
  • Cons: Only mounts for one cooling fan, Hard drive cage cumbersome, Break-away 5.25" covers, Rough edges all over inside, A bit expensive for its offerings

Antec Sonata IV

  • Excerpt: Mit der Sonata Serie hat Antec, ein kalifornischer Gehäusehersteller, schon länger eine schlichte Sammlung an Miditowern im Angebot. Mit der Auslegung auf einen leisen und unauffälligen Betrieb sind diese Gehäuse eher zurückhaltend und unauffällig. Jetzt wurde mit dem IV nochmals nachgelegt, als Besonderheit sind hier das leistungsstarke 620 Watt Netzteil und der USB 3.0 Anschluss im Frontpanel zu erwähnen. Viel Spaß beim Lesen.
  • Pros: - gute Verarbeitung, - mit Netzteil, - gute Lackierung
  • Cons: - Laufwerkshalterung
