Good case for budget build

Mr. S., Newegg
21 February 2014
  • Summary: I have read that others have had problems with there 200mm fan. I personally have had the same one in for over 3 years without issues.. no LED's burnt out etc.. Still a great case for the money!
  • Pros: Has great aesthetics. Blue LED's are not overpowering and give a great accent to the case during night time gaming. I bought this case back at the beginning of 2011 for my build with an i5 2500k GTX560TI 8gb Corsair Vengeance Ram Corsair H50 CPU Cooler.. Have not had one single probably.
  • Cons: Only issue I have with the case as stated by others is that the case does creak and make weird noises at time like its settling.. this still is happening after owning the case for over 3 years now.. You definitely want a modular PSU if your going to use this case. Not alot of extra space to hide ...

Great air flow with a few issues

Steven H., Newegg
29 May 2013
  • Summary: I'm going to give it a 4 because they never got proactive and replaced the bad 200mm fan in production. They kept using the defective one they end up replacing later .... go figure. I know i listed a lot of cons, but that's more informational for prospective buyers.
  • Pros: Great Airflow. I love the lights and the clear side panel. Cable management was pretty easy. The case looks great and i'm overall really happy with it.
  • Cons: The only thing holding me back from purchasing this case was the majority of people that had problems with the top 200mm fan. I went ahead and bought the case anyways, and of course, my top 200mm went bad. I'm in the process of trying to get a replacement for it. The front filters are a PITA, how...

Solid case

Boyse W., Newegg
23 May 2013
  • Summary: The case is well built and very sturdy. While putting my build together and whenever I clean it out I never feel like I'm going to break anything by accident. The clear panel on the side has a slot for a 200mm fan, which I highly suggest getting with this case.
  • Pros: -Plenty of air flow -Bright blue LEDs -Solid construction, never felt like I was going to break something -Sleek black finish -Quiet fans -Clear side panel for viewing (see other thoughts) -Good amount of space for a mid tower
  • Cons: -Hard to clean dirt off -Front panel audio and USB 3.0 don't work -Cleaning the front fans is kind of a pain -Not a lot of room behind mobo for cable management

Great sequel to the original Antec Nine Hundred

Christopher S., Newegg
27 March 2013
  • Summary: Every one of the case fans has a bright blue LED light. I actually enjoy the way it makes my room glow at night, but I guess this could be a turn-off for some. The big fan actually has an on/off switch for its light.
  • Pros: This is a great case. Nearly everything is just as good as the the original Nine Hundred. Removable hard drive bays, side areas to hide cabling, adequate airflow, top area to hold stuff like game controllers or headphones. Running and concealing the cabling was relatively easy. Airflow is very go...
  • Cons: USB 3 cables are too short to reach one of the ports on my motherboard, so I guess I will leave them disconnected until I get an extension cable. The 3 usb 3 ports on the top are split into a set of 2 and a set of 1, so I've got the 2 hooked up for now. The cables for the front audio ports are al...

Almost Brilliant

Andrew E., Newegg
10 March 2013
  • Summary: Though my current motherboard doesn't support USB 3.0, so I have not had any issues with that, however there are no adapters included so the front USB ports are pretty much useless. However it is a minor complaint that I've been able to adapt to quite easily.
  • Pros: *Plenty of ventlation *Modular and Easy installation *Sleek black with blue LED appeal *Cable Management & liquid cooling friendly *Comes with all required mounting hardware and more
  • Cons: *USB 3.0 cables a little short if installed with one or more GPUs *A hassle to clean the front fan filters. *No USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 adapters included.

Solid Case - Collects Dust - USB 3.0 Hassle

Nicholas B., Newegg
9 February 2013
  • Summary: Solid case. Lost 1 egg de to the front panel USB 3.0 cable. LEDs are a nice touch, wish there were more, but will be adding some down the road, they aren't too pricey.
  • Pros: Very solid case. My wife purchased it without knowing anything about components to suprise me and for the price it is a solid case. Came with all the screws/mounts that I needed so I can't complain there.
  • Cons: Front Panel USB 3.0 cable is impossible to run through the case properly if a GPU is installed. Ended up moving the pci slot cover from the bottom and moving it to the top to run the cable to the back. Will be purchasing an adapter soon to plug said cable into the motherboard's USB 3.0 header. Pa...

Review Redo

Anonymous, Newegg
24 January 2013
  • Pros: Tons of room. Air flow is spectacular. Manufacturing quality is great. Cable management is excellent. Side panels are easily removed. Fan controls are a plus. FILTERS! (also a con, see below)
  • Cons: Screen filter maint. is ia pain in the you know what. There are 2 removable drive bays, each holding 3 drives. Both have a front screen which functions wonderfully. If you use all the thumb screws that come and hold these in place its too much whne you want to clean the screens. 8 thumbs screws o...

Solid

Ashley P., Newegg
11 January 2013
  • Summary: A+++ would buy again. Definitely worth the extra money that would be saved on cheaper cases.
  • Pros: Very solid. Everything inside is easily accessible. Hard drive bays pull out from the front so its easy to install. Front panel is handy and not likely to break soon.
  • Cons: The top fan grate is not rigid enough. It easily gets bent inward and rubs the fan if it is operating. The weight of my cat is sufficient to cause rubbing.

Inaccurate marketing, manual

Paul S., Newegg
3 January 2013
  • Summary: This was my first build and since completion I've seen other cases with better HD bays and easier removal. Considering Antec's issues with publishing clear specs and dismissive customer service, I'll probably go with a different case next time.
  • Pros: This case has great air flow, is nice looking, has quiet fans and nice cable management. Everything seems solidly built and fairly well thought out.
  • Cons: Minor point, but worth one less egg: Antec should get its act together on just what ports are on the front of this case. At purchase time, late Nov. 2012, the Antec site said it had 2 USB 2 and one eSATA port on the front. The Newegg site said two USB3 and one USB 2. The case actually arrived wit...

martin d., Newegg
1 January 2013
  • Summary: The lack of a bottom vent/filter and the orientation of drive bays that take up space and look more messy are why I am going with the Corsair 600T for my new build.
  • Pros: I've had this case a while. No broken or defective parts. It looks great, has a nice black interior, great air flow. The front fans speeds are adjustable; the top and back fan speeds are adjustable (even if a little hard to get to on the back of the case) and the led of the top fan can be turned ...
  • Cons: I could not believe that it didn't have a vent at the bottom for the power supply. Had to subtract an egg for that. The cutouts for hiding cables is nice but grommets would seal the deal (for little cost to Antec). The drive bays should be turned 90 degrees so the cables wouldn't stick out over t...
