not grounded properly

John H., Newegg
4 March 2013
  • Pros: Lots of room. Easy to install everything. But...
  • Cons: The number one problem with this case is that it caused my computer to randomly hard reboot. It took me a lot of testing to figure out it was the case. I swapped out the usual suspects like power supply and memory, graphics card. Finally I thought it must just be a bad motherboard. Yet with a com...

Sloppy Parts Providers

michael m., Newegg
30 December 2012
  • Summary: It would be nice if they turned the hard drive cages 90 degrees then I could hide my cables better. Why would anyone buy a case where the screws don't fit. If any of these fans fail or their lights burn out I don't think they are end user replaceable. Not the friendliest case.
  • Pros: The best feature of this case is that it moves a lot of air. The metal is machined very well and will not cut you. It has 2 additional slots for fans so depending on your build you could turn this into a real whirlwind case. The fan speeds from Antec are adjustable so you can adjust between maxim...
  • Cons: The screws Antec provide do not fit into the brass standoffs. If the case cannot accommodate the motherboard then it has failed it most fundamental purpose. This would be like having car with oblong wheels. Antec does not identify or tell you what screws go into the brass standoffs. Antec gives y...

Stay Away

John I., Newegg
11 December 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this case as an upgrade to my Antec 300 case (I wanted the window in the side) and after 6 months I decided to go back to the Antec 300. I did the job yesterday. The difficulty of cleaning the hard-drive fans and mounts was just too much.
  • Pros: Great air cooling.
  • Cons: -All of the groves on the top of this case are nothing but dust collectors. In order to clean the top of this case you will need a brush and a vacumn cleaner. -The hard-drive mounting system is unnecessarily complex and requires special screws. -Cleaning of the hard-drive mounts and fans (other t...

A Strong - DO NOT BUY

THOMAS F., Newegg
8 December 2012
  • Summary: I've been an Antec fanboy for over a decade. I don't know what to do after this case. I'd like my money back, but that's not going to happen..
  • Pros: Looks pretty from the outside.
  • Cons: Front panel USB 3.0 mounts via external cable to rear USB 3.0 - Only reaches if you do not have any PCI cards installed - As the cable just hardly reaches the rear of the case, it does so diagonally resulting in an unsightly patchworked slapped together appearance, not something you’d expect from...

Antec 900

steffany h., Newegg
6 December 2012
  • Summary: I paid for express shipping. I ordered a full system upgrade and for some reason this tower gets shipped late. Other items showed up on time, which they were all ordered at the same time.
  • Pros: Very nice and has a very nice cooling system setup.
  • Cons: Make sure you order this item way before you order mother board and ect.

Do Not Buy

Clay H., Newegg
7 January 2012
  • Summary: I received this case for free with an order, and I still came to write a review about how awful it is. DO NOT BUY. There are way better cases for around the same price. It's not worth damaging or shorting your components.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: -Came warped -Materials are so weak they break of warp from extremely light pressure or use -Mobo screws constantly grip together and make it extremely difficult to either screw the mobo in properly or remove it should you have a problem -hdd bays are placed terribly -fans on the top of case obst...

Bad Antec

Evan S., Newegg
29 December 2011
  • Summary: Will most likely never buy another Antec product again after this ordeal. Worst part of it is i bought this case because it was suppose to be cheap (70$ after MIR on cyber Monday) but I have not heard back about my rebate and its been a month.
  • Pros: Pretty blue fans and perhaps the cooling is alright when the stock fans function.
  • Cons: Where to begin. 1. Cables were all too short, cost me about $30 for extension cords to reach my mobo. 2. Usb 3.0 uses external connector which you run through the case, this would be OK if the cable was long enough to go out through the case the way it was intended. Cost me another $15 for an ada...

Top Fan DOA

Kevin R., Newegg
1 September 2011
  • Pros: .
  • Cons: Top Fan was DOA. Tried to work directly with Antec on a replacement as it was no fault of NewEgg. Antec has poor customer service, but they win because it will be easier for me to buy a replacement fan than to make them own up to their poor quality component.

Front USB shorts out the system

Vladimir K., Newegg
11 December 2010
  • Summary: Maybe I just got a dud, I don't know.
  • Pros: -Antec -Air filters -Top fan -Nice budget case -I actually like 2.5" hot swap
  • Cons: Well, often when I plug a USB stick in the front panel - it shorts out the system and computer restarts. I've built many computers for the company where I work (we're engineers) using Antec 900 and 300, which are great cases and never had this problem. Decided to use a cheaper case for this build...
