Summary: It's just about the perfect case. I didn't know unicorns existed until I found this one.
Pros: I've owned probably a dozen or so cases and worked on hundreds in my life and this is the best. It's modular, everything fits like it should, no sharp edges (you know what I'm talking about), it's not crazy large, has great air cooling, everything about it is easy and just works. I'd recommend to...
Cons: It's not crazy large. Lots of the new motherboards, video cards, power supplies, seems like everything is getting bigger and bigger. Except the solid state drives, they're shrinking. This case is not big enough to handle all the monster equipment but it does just find for my personal rig.
Pros: Solid case. Has a removable filter to clean out the dirt and lint that would have gotten into the case. Cable management is good.
Cons: It would be nice to have the option of shutting off the blue lights on the front of the case. It would also help if the case came with some power splitters considering how many fans that need to run to the motherboard.
Pros: Bought this tower for a cheap first build. I've had it for over 3 years and it's still great. Not a lot of room, but if you're only running 1 gpu and 1 hd it's fine. All original fans still going strong, and I love the removable filter in front of the intake fans.
Cons: The 900 is deff a better option since it gives more room to grow, and that big boy fan on top help a lot with the cooling. Would like the filter on it as well, but the removable hd cases/fans are nice.
Summary: I would consider another Antec case, but more research would have to be done to be sure that the front ports are well made. Perhaps that is why Antec discontinued this version of this model.
Pros: Lots of room, easy to put in all the hard drives, etc. Very good customer service: easy to contact, easy to work with.
Cons: The front of the case is poorly made, which is why I took off an egg. The front USB ports have failed twice and had to be replaced under warranty. They also don't work for every device. For example, my external hard drive enclosure doesn't work with them, which is inconvenient. I have to get unde...
Pros: Good area in the case, I have used this case since 2011 no issues until now.
Cons: in the description it says it will take a video card up 318mm but it doesnt I had a 760GTX 2gb video card in the machine with no issues but i bought a new 960GTX 4gb card which is 284mm 11.6 inches long as will not fit in this case.
Summary: I build PCs for lots of friends and relatives. This has become my standard case. I've built up about a half a dozen of these without any issues. I prefer this case over the newer Three Hundred Two (which I've used a couple of times).
Pros: Fantastic air flow means quiet computing if you select quiet components. Easy to build, nice and roomy with good old-fashioned screw mounted drives.
Cons: Mounting 3.5" flash card readers requires and add-on kit. Mounting 2.5" drives required additional hardware (except for a single bottom mounted drive in newer cases). Sheet metal isn't as thick as the premium cases.
