Big, sturdy, needs improvement

Christopher K., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: -I wouldn't buy this case again mainly because of the irritation that comes from needing to partially disassemble the case to clean the front filters, and due to the lack of carrying handles for such a beast of a tower.
  • Pros: -This sucker is large and in charge. In other words it is very roomy with lots of space for your power user builds with many components. -Lots of cooling: 7 case fans (I bought an extra for the side panel) keeps everything nice and cool. -Sturdy design. This is a hefty case and is definitely not ...
  • Cons: -The biggest problem with this case is the fact that the front air filters are not easy to access. You have to take both sides of the case off and then unscrew 24 thumb screws (8 screws per drive cage [4 on each side] x 3 cages) to push the cages forward far enough to remove the filters for clean...

Leaves something to be desired

John S., Newegg
7 January 2016
  • Summary: The upper and lower tanks on the double cooler hit.
  • Pros: Nice large case, more than enough room for ALMOST everything.
  • Cons: Don't buy this expecting to put in a 240MM radiator, even the ones ANTEC makes will not fit.

It's time to retire this case.

Brian A., Newegg
30 December 2015
  • Summary: In 2009, when I first bought one of these, it was the biggest, baddest kid on the block. Most cases were much smaller and very cheap-looking. The 1200 appealed most to those who could afford it (over $200 at the time).
  • Pros: The best thing about this case would be the six fans it comes with. They do a fantastic job of keeping your rig air cooled. And they have a nice blue glow, which is my favorite color—so there's that. Hooked up to a good motherboard, the fans won't run at top speed all the time, so they're very qu...
  • Cons: As big and heavy as this case is, it is horribly crowded front to back. If it were another two inches longer, it would be fairly roomy. As it is, the same front fans and filter assemblies doing such a great job of keeping the case cool and clean also rob precious space needed for cabling. The rea...

Been awesome Case for Years!

Evan H., Newegg
13 December 2015
  • Pros: Keeps my hardware running nice and cool! My CPU is at 19C and my GPU at 31C at an idle! Ive had this case since 2010. Filters are somewhat easy to clean and is easy to mod, painted the front grills orange.
  • Cons: Well the bad part is that the fans are starting to make noise and Antec Doesn't provide the replacements for the front fans with the variable speed knob. They do however provide the big boy 200mm fan.... not sure what im gonna do when they actually fail :( honestly need to replace all the 120mm f...

Four years later, still going strong!

James L., Newegg
8 November 2015
  • Summary: If you can get a good price on the V3 it's totally worth the money. Everything about this case feels solid and it looks real sharp if you keep it clean.
  • Pros: This is a review for the V3 1200 case. Have had this case running practically daily since I bought it in 2011. No abnormal noises from the fans or any loss in power. All of the LED's still work as well. Having the modular design for the hard drive bays is probably my favorite part, I bought a 980...
  • Cons: The first case I was shipped was dented in the back, like someone had used a power screwdriver on the rear panel screws. Newegg RMA'd it the next day.

Amazing Case, how quiet the sound...

TechSATX, Newegg
17 September 2015
  • Summary: I really was worried about the brightness of the LEDs in the fans, but it turns out that they were just right. I really appreciated that the fans were not clear plastic because that looks cheap to me.
  • Pros: This is an awesome case, and is the best one I have owned. It is a very sturdy and heavy case. This amazing case is made with thick gauge steel, and the edges are rolled so you don't have to worry about cuts. I love that the metal is all painted black, even inside. Looks sharp! The drive cages ar...
  • Cons: No tool-less drive bays. Drive bays must be removed to install hard drives. No 3-pin fan to molex adapters, so if you motherboard does not have at least 6 fan connectors you will need to buy some. The top 200mm fan required more power than my motherboard put out of the fan connectors so i had to ...

low quality

Anonymous, Newegg
16 August 2015
  • Pros: large size, good airflow, cable management.
  • Cons: Just put the new computer together today, decided to purchase Antec because my previous mid-tower was really good quality. This one was disappointing, top attachment is flimsy and held together by a very weak piece of plastic that could easily break off. Part of the case was bent so my friend and...
