Pros: Very quiet and very good air flow at a cheap price.
Cons: USB ports in the USB Module at the front of the case is just as delicate as you might think. Something to think about if you have kids that plug things in the front and leave them there, then dogs that go walking past.
Summary: - I've never plugged the connectors for the leds on the front panel in so I don't know how well those work. - When I first built a computer with this case I used a Corsair CX600 non modular psu. I regularly had a problem with my computer shutting off until my brother found that some unused connectors from the psu might have been shorting out on parts of the case.
Pros: - Cheap - Well built - Nothing has broken for the 2 years I've owned this case and the two computers I've built with it - Came with a lot of screws and motherboard standoffs - Case fans are pretty quiet
Cons: - Very hard to manage cables inside this case - Impossible to press the reset button so I didn't even connect it to the motherboard - There are metal plates that were connected at the top of the 5.25" drive bay that vibrated and made a very loud noise until I twisted them out of the case
Summary: You'll want a dust filter for the side fan if you use it as an intake.
Pros: The best choice for enthusiasts who want a professional look. Subtle styling and well-built. Filter is easily removed for cleaning. I was able to Crossfire two large graphics cards without a modular power supply (but it's tight). Buttons work well enough. Plenty of finger screws. Air flow is more than adequate.
Cons: I was unabled to hail passing UFO's by the strength of its standby LEDs.
Summary: Great case. if you want a bigger graphics card and use a SSD (mounts on bottom) or just one HDD this case would be great.
Pros: Good cooling, I like the fans that came with it as well as the potential for 3 extra fans (120 mm)
Cons: The size of a graphics card is very limited. I ended up having to remove some rivets to take out the HDD bays ( i just got an adapted and put it where an extra CD drive would go, also very happy with this modification).
Summary: honestly I just bought it because it was on sale pretty cheap. I had no idea it was this good, I'm delightfully surprised!
Pros: very high quality, and it shows! Very good air flow. HDDs staying cool is top priority, but doesn't hinder cooling to the motherboard. edges are rounded off on the inside so you don't injure your hands while working on it. 120mm and 140mm fans are naturally quieter and include individual speed controllers that can be mounted nearby. All together VERY solid. Antec's own quality 3-year warranty is also solid. There is no cheesy lawyer-lingo or "limited" stamped anywhere...
Cons: I have to really try hard to think of something bad about the case... yea, I got nothing. the included external usb ports are NOT USB 3.0. But it would be the easiest thing to replace that. ..... um... you have to remove the side panel to release the front bezel and clean the air filter, but then that just means that things aren't going to be flopping open in transit to LAN parties etc. that's about it...
