You get what you pay for

Sebastien F., Newegg

  • Summary: If it didn't have those two flaws, I'd give it 5 eggs. I knew I was buying a cheap case with good review and it almost delivered on everything except those two flaws...
  • Pros: Cheap case. Installation went well. Fans are quiet on L and M. Seems to keep everything cooled.
  • Cons: Well first, paint is kind of spotty. When I contacted the support, they say it was "by design" and meant to be anti-slip since the case doesn't have a handle... whatever... it's under the desk, so from far, it doesn't show... Second, the reset button has to be jammed all the way to get the system...

  • Summary: the two 120mm fans on the front of the case need a push before they will start spinning. Very frustrating as they are the sole intake fans for the case.
  • Pros: It is a decent cheap case Good airflow through case
  • Cons: No cable management

Decent case for the price point.

  • Summary: - Blue LED's, these can be "clipped" easily enough (the front requires taking off the faceplate, be -careful- the "clips" holding it on are a bit more brittle than I would care for)
  • Pros: - Inexpensive (for the price range and number of bays/fans) - Good many bays, easy enough to access
  • Cons: - Bay mounting holes. I have four different brands of products in the 5.25" and 3.5" bays. NONE of the holes line up -just- right. The holes on the 5.25" bays are the worse offenders. I prefer to use all four screws per bay, especially when putting together a system for a friend, relative or cust...

Antec 300

Carol A., Newegg
5 August 2014
  • Summary: The top fan mount vibrates causing an annoying sound. I can loosen and tighten from time to time and sound will stop, but it will come back...doing this has caused the head of my fan screws to become stripped. This case is neither loud (unless fan mount is being annoying) or quite.
  • Pros: Sturdy Good Warranty Front fan cages allow fan to be removed without hassle Washable dust filter for front fans
  • Cons: No Front fans Only 2 fans Only one dust filter for front No bottom ventilation No cable management Annoying sound from top fan mount I have never been able to use the front speaker jacks. Some how during manufacturing the plastic piece that holds the jacks was made too short. So when I try to plu...

Good case for my first build

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Like I said, there are better cases out there for around the same price if not another $20 or $30. Throw down the extra cash and get one of those, it will be worth it for now and in the long run.
  • Pros: Good case flow and temps, Decent amount of fans, Nice place to tuck wires, plenty of 3.5" and 5.25" slots, even has a 2.5" mount on the bottom of the case for your SSD which surprised me when I got my SSD today and saw the specs on this case.
  • Cons: This case hasn't aged very well. I honestly don't recommend it any more as there are better more up to date cases out now at about the same price. It builds up a lot of dust and lint even with the lint catcher on the front of the case. Wire management is a pain. Not enough space for the biggest g...

  • Pros: Great price for what you get, leds are very cool, included fans
  • Cons: Small for larger graphics card(s). My 2 sapphire 270x toxics did not fit length ways, had to start cutting. Granted my cards are some of the biggest I've ever seen (over 12 inches long). Now am only left with 2 or 3 hdd bays

Decent

  • Summary: I upgraded to a Fractal Design XL R2 for the exact same price at a sale. It is light years ahead of this case.
  • Pros: Fairly inexpensive, good amount of leg room so to speak
  • Cons: Impossible to do any sort of cable management at all, materials felt cheap

Great case, horrible fans

Corban C., Newegg
20 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought Antec because they are a pretty solid brand. I also bought from Newegg because I've trusted their customer service in the past. It appears as though my trust may have been misplaced. I contacted Newegg to RMA the fans but they want me to send in the whole case.
  • Pros: The case is just what I wanted. Has a lot of fans for moving the air around. I immediately added extra 'optional' fans to get the best air flow possible. I'm using this as a media server with a lot of hard drives and wanted to keep the case cool for 24/7 operation.
  • Cons: Unfortunately, the fans in this case really suck (opposite of blow). They are 3 speed fans and the 140 mm fan wouldn't even spin until I set it to 3, at which point it vibrates a makes a ton of noise. The other fan when set to 1 (slow) wouldn't turn for more than 2 seconds and when set to 2 (medi...

Antec 300

Ernest C., Newegg
19 December 2013
  • Summary: I would recommend Antec updating the two front USB ports to 3.0. No reason for less after they have been out so long. I am still not sold on bottom mounting PS.. I regard dust and video card clearance as much bigger issues than questionable thermal gains.
  • Pros: Good looking sturdy case. The fans are quiet, screws and cables are all in good order.
  • Cons: I big note to consider regarding this case is that PCIE card clearance is 11" excactly! This means that a video card must be slightly less than 11" to fit! As a result probably MOST of the highest end video cards will not fit in this case! I was fortunate to SLI a 9.5" and a 10.3" card. The hard ...
