Antec's thoughtfully-designed case brings you not only top performance but unique style, with its striking gun metal stainless steel exterior. The interior features a separate lower chamber with its own 120 mm TriCool fan, to house your power supply (purchased separately), isolating heat, and reducing system noise. The upper chamber comes standard with rear and top 120 mm TriCool fans, and spaces for an optional front 120 mm fan, and a middle 120 mm fan to cool your VGA. The three-layer side panel and front door stifle system noise, and the door opens 270-degrees for easy access.

Front-mounted ports give you easy access to two USB 2.0 connectors, one IEEE 1394 connector, and audio jacks. Rear panel features external controls for the fans in the upper chamber.

You'll have all the room you need to build your dream system, with bays for four 5.25" external, one 3.5" external and six 3.5" INternal drives. There's space for an ATX motherboard up to 12"(W) x 9.6"(L), seven expansion slots, and rubber-grommeted mounts on the rear of the case for an optional external liquid-cooling system. The built-in cable organizer behind motherboard tray keeps your cables under control. This glossy case has everything you need to build your white hot gaming system!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Lots of configuration options. Set the case up how you want. Mine is fairly vanilla. Threw in a couple LED fans, but otherwise looks very clean.

Cons: Heavy, no good handles to move it around

Other Thoughts: I have yet to see a case that I like more. it is simple and clean looking on the outside. It has tons of room on the inside.

4 out of 5 eggsSleek machine

Pros: Very sleek. Cable & compartment handling is top notch. Very little sound escapes the case.

Cons: Routing PSU cables through bottom compartment is a hassle. Had to remove their middle fan and black plastic bracket. Optional front fans appear a bit loose. Not major issues, but takes away an egg.

4 out of 5 eggsBest Case I've Owned

Pros: -Great Look & Design. Very Solid.
-Very good air flow. Never have had any overheating issues (originally got 2 evga 9800gtx+ which run hot).
-Modular HDD bays
-Quiet (when case fans are turned up to max its a little loud but cant hear it over gaming. but what do you expect on max)

Cons: The front USB ports dont have any support to hold the plug in place. Leg brushed up on the device connected and broke both of the front USB ports :(

Other Thoughts: A little pricey, but i have had this case since 2008 and I never write reviews. I feel this case definitely deserves one.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This case looks nice, is easy to keep cool and quiet. The filters do a good job of keeping most of the dust out of the main spaces.

I'm glad the upper level HD caddy is removable, because my gtx260s wouldn't fit with it installed.

Cons: After 3-4 years, some of the metal sheeting has de-laminated from the sides of the case, but that is nothing a little bit of glue and a stack of books to apply pressure wont fix if I ever get around to it. The front door on mine has warped, and doesn't quite latch anymore. Again, I could probably shore it up with part of a yardstick and some glue.

I've never gotten the front audio ports to work, I'm not sure if they are bad or its been the mb onboard soundcard's fault.

Other Thoughts: I've had this case for almost 4 years and its had 2 changes of the internal guts so far, I see it going for another few sets of internal components.

It is a bit heavy, but that hasn't really been a concern, even moving 5 times since I've gotten it.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Case

Pros: This is a very well made product. It's sturdy as hell and is very nice to look at. All of the little additions that come with the case help to make future maintenance a joy, especially the dust pre-filters. I was so thrilled to see that the motherboard standoffs were already pre-installed. The thick steel case remains cool to the touch, even in a warm environment. The air really moves through this machine, keeping everything nice and cool.

Cons: The stock case fans are loud. You may want to consider a third party option.

Other Thoughts: This case is not an option for 3-way-SLI mode using high end cards. There just won't be enough room. Then again, what gamer would pick this case.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: I actually bought this from fries (lol newegg) for 100$ lol.

Great case, lots of room, doors are rubbery and steel, great sound insulation. Lots of room to work with, I put fans usually on low, maybe the rear fan on medium.

Lots of places for hard drives, I have 6, so it did that well.

Cons: Door hinges are very weak, mine broke. So now the door can fall off... I am not sure why they didn't use metal like my old cooler master 830 case. Very stupid, but it still works. Very sturdy case other than that.

Other Thoughts: Great case, AWESOME looks.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: Stylish
Extremely quiet with fans set to low
Vents on the front are filtered
Very high quality construction
Easy access to all components

Cons: Somewhat cramped for its size
Minor fit and finish issues

Other Thoughts: Overall this case is fantastic. It's (significantly) quieter than my DVR, airflow is quite good, construction is top-notch and the layout makes everything easily accessible. However, it could stand to be about one inch longer to account for large graphics cards; my GTX285 fits, but only there is no hard drive in the upper slot of the drive cassette. Fit and finish issues exist as well, mostly due to poor quality adhesive. So far I've had to glue two of the silicon feet and one of the door magnets back on because the adhesive failed, and I've only had the case for one month.

Were the case one inch longer I'd have given it 5 eggs; the adhesive is a very minor complaint, but I expect components to fit in a case this large without much fuss. That aside, I'm ecstatic about this case and would absolutely buy another.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Large case, sturdy construction, very quiet, ability to route cables on the back side of the motherboard, washable air filter.

Cons: The access door to route the cables from the power supply was too close to the PCI ports on my motherboard so I had to do some modification to the case in that area to make the cables fit.

Other Thoughts: If the PCI card I had placed in the slot next (3 slots up) to the power supply compartment door had been smaller it may have fit, but the 16 input video capture card I installed was a full profile card and made it pretty hard to find a good way to route the power cables. If you use more normal sized PCI cards you might not have a problem.

5 out of 5 eggsLovely case

Pros: I love it simply because of its layout, with the PSU being on the bottom and the trays for your various drives. One nice touch is one of the pull out trays has a small container attached to it that you can put in extra parts. The stock fans are not amazing but they do the job though they do have speed settings, there is no reason for them not to be set to High. Its quiet and not visually distracting, lots of cases have windows and lights and all this flashy stuff, this does not.

I have had to move this case tons of times, and it is heavy but very easy to get a hold of (atleast for me).

Cons: The front door is flimsy, and can be annoying if you have to keep it open to do CD swapping or need to be constantly turning it back on while doing work on it, etc. It also includes a lock which is pointless because you can easily pry the door back to turn the computer on if you wanted to. I am not sure if it is just my room but my case fans collect A LOT of dust, I find myself cleaning the front fans about every other week of dust.

Other Thoughts: This was my first case for my first computer I built all by myself and it has a great layout. Does require some good cable management, you will find yourself having to re think some things and stretching some wires around but it all works in the end.
