4 out of 5 eggsA Fine Case

Pros: Solid steel frame. Quality materials. Three layer (steel/plastic/steel) front and side panels. Two layer (steel/plastic) top panel. Most edges are rolled. Plenty of bays and slots. Plenty of fan placement options. Power-coat Black inside and out. Silicone feet.

Cons: A bit pricey. Only one top fan opening. Silicone feet are a bit short.

Other Thoughts: One of Antec's better products. in use for over two years and with no problems.

5 out of 5 eggsFinely crafted lead weight

Pros: Extremely excellent workmanship. I've owned many cases in my lifetime and I must say they outdid themselves. There are nice little features in all the nooks of this case that make it a cut above 99% of the others out there. Also, it's a classy design that will stand the test of time unlike many of the foofoo cases on the market.

Cons: Expect extra cost in purchasing a forklift to move this sucker if you have it packed full of harddrives, etc. Not the greatest for lugging to a lanparty - skinny nerd limp noodles need not apply.

Other Thoughts: Get this sucker. You won't be dissapointed.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect Case, highly recommended

Pros: Normally I avoid writing a review if I didn't buy it on Newegg, but this case is the one exception. For anybody who wants a well ventilated, dust filtering, and quiet mid atx case, this is it. I absolutely love the design and the layout. interior is pleasing to look at. Great wind tunnel design. Sturdy case. Having an HDD cage is useful for adding extra storage. Looks sleek and professional. Even the fans on at high were not that annoying. I set mine on medium and can hardly notice it. Cable routing system was excellent. Lots of pathways to choose from that fit your needs. Dust filters in the front are really helpful. Easy to clean, and keeps your case less dusty for a longer period of time.

Cons: It’s heavy with nothing in it, and heavier with everything in it. Don’t drag this thing on carpet. One of the rubber feet came off, but nothing that super glue can’t fix. Be sure your power supply has long cables. I have the PC Power & Cooling 750W silencer.

Other Thoughts: I read reviews earlier about how the length of this psu can create unnecessary obstacles, but if you spend one day routing the cables before you put anything in there, you’ll be fine. Plan ahead and think about what cables you need and don’t need. Once you have that settled, put the cables you don’t need in the hole above the power supply. I put all mine in the floppy disk drive which I don’t use, so it worked for me. The wires I used, I used the back panel routing system. Do this and you're set. I'm extremely happy with this case. Can't imagine myself with any other case.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Case

Pros: Obviously a very nice finish. Looks fantastic. The layout is very nice. Cable management works very well. External switches for fan speed is awesome. Very quiet case. With fans on low setting, you will hear a whoosh but that's about it. Door has magnets on it to make the door close firmly. This thing just feels really really solid.

Cons: The cable management works great, however if I could change anything about the case, I would allow at least 1/2 inch more clearance between the motherboard back plane and the side of the case. It's hard (but not impossible) to the get case side on there if you have a lot of thick power cables running behind the back plane.

Other Thoughts: This is really a great case. I would buy again in a heartbeat. It has really made working with my computer more enjoyable. Mainly because it is much quieter than my old case and because it looks very nice. After seeing this thing in person, it really does look as good as you think it might.

4 out of 5 eggsNice case but not enough room.

Pros: Nice looking and well ventilated.

Cons: Different interior design makes for a tight fit.

Other Thoughts: I packed 3 hard drives and two 8800GTS in this case. The cords on my PSU were not long enough to reach the mobo. This case is designed to run everything behind the motherboard and in theory is a good idea. Longer cables would have solved most of my headache.

There is no guard on the bottom fan that sits in front of the PSU. All of the PSU cords were sitting right no the fan. I had to remove that fan and place it in the top HD bay. It changed the airflow but still cools quite well.

I'm not sure if it is the case's fault or the mobo I bought (eVGA LGA 775) but there is less then half an inch of clearance between the case and one of my video cards.

Not only that all the cords running to my video cards had to be jumbled in tight positions with my psu cords. Once again I think that would have been solved with longer cords.

Anyway, I had a hell of a time making this case work for my setup but the case it's self is very sturdy and pleasing to the eye. Not bad for the money.

4 out of 5 eggsChrome Tank

Pros: Mirror finish; 3 fans(3 speeds)wind tunnel design; Hard-Drive bay bust-filters; well built... I'll can see this lasting me more than 10 years

Cons: So you'll know: Not Tool-less; Heavy; fans have large Molex 4pin connectors; could have use more filters and soft ones.
this case uses hard plastic ones.

Other Thoughts: This is the First case I've bought. I like this one, but my next case will be all aluminum and I'll pad an filter it myself.

To get the PSU in you take both sides off the case an unscrew the holding frame

3 out of 5 eggsGood in theory, bad in practice

Pros: The case is beautiful. Removable drive cages are very handy. Rails for 5.25" drives make installation and removal very easy. Case is quiet.

Cons: Installing the power supply was a nightmare. 750W PC Power and Cooling. Granted, it's a longer power supply, but this is the fifth computer I've built and never had issues like this. I managed to install it without removing the bottom fan, but judging from other reviews, I probably should have. Cables had to be squeezed up through the hole above which then causes them to run into the bottom of the second 8800GTS that I have for SLI (even after removing the bottom tray). Managed to tie them down to the case so the contact is minimal and the GPU fan is not blocked.

I'm going to try rerouting the cables around the back and removing the bottom fan.

The case is also very heavy, especially once you get everything installed.

Other Thoughts: Honestly, it gets three stars because other than fighting with the power supply, drive installation was a cinch and I bought the case for the looks. Be wary if you're buying a long power supply.

5 out of 5 eggsWOW

Pros: This is gorgeous! The finish is absolutely beautiful, if not a little high maintenance. I don't care - it's all about the looks! Anyway, the inside looks nearly as nice as the outside. It has a black finish that makes it looks truly polished, if not downright elegant. If you want crazy lights and stuff, this isn't the case for you as it is fully enclosed. This model has really added accessibility via the backside of the case compared to previous models. I was able to put much of the wiring around back and keep a pretty clean interior.

Cons: The price at NewEgg. Truth to tell, I bought it elsewhere and saved $70. While roomy inside, the different compartments and layout are a bit tricky. The wording on the front LEDs, etc., wasn't very clear. Contacted Gigabyte just to verify and they got right back to me. Fingerprints, fingerprints, fingerprints. If you don't want to do a little polishing everyday, don't get this case. (I don't mind!)

Other Thoughts: I did my homework before this purchase and knew the right PSU was mandatory, with having it in the bottom on the case. I bought the PC P&C 610W Silencer (extra long) and, what a headache initially. I tried installing it "normally" but, when that didn't work, I remembered reading that someone installed the PSU upside down. What a difference! Slid right in and basically worked way better with that center fan. Everything was then a breeze to route up the back. I, too, would like to see some sort of mesh or something to separate the hard drive cords from that center fan but, with only 1 HD so far, it was easy enough to wrap and stick to the side. BTW, don't be afraid to use a little electrical tape to ensure cords stay put. Also, while the front door is terrific for maintaining the sleek look, opening and closing gets monotonous AND leaves fingerprints. Thankfully the case comes with a cloth! Would also love to see the side panel swing out instead of having to remove.

5 out of 5 eggsBaLLiN'

Pros: Peoples jaw drop when they see it, this is the best looking case ive seen, especially for the price (custom drum cases are $400 for example) SEE SPECS BELOW, I am running at 28 deg. C. I find this amazing. antec builds a H-E-(DOUBLE HOCKEY STICKS) [f.t.w] of a tank for a case in this model, and provides you with enough hardware to supply 2 other computers. Also, hard drive slots with the anti vibrartion are sweet. The fans are amazing and are integrated on the back to switch speeds, amazing! this is the first case i have bought over the 100 mark. I will never spend less than 150 on a case again, no matter what, think of the cooling you will get (I.E. more life to ALL of your components) You can sit on this thing, and i wouldnt doubt i could use it for a jack to hold up a serious.

Cons: although not a con for me, this case is big, but makes up for it with the space usage and cooling. also, installing the cd drives reeeeaaalllly Pi@#$d me off.

Other Thoughts: MSI K9A2, AMD 9500, 4b (2 x2) Corsair XMS 2 ddr2 800, This case, (antec Mirror p183 special edition)Zalman 9700 LED (CPU 28 degrees, not overclocked) TOXIC sapphire 3870 (paid too much for it, but best card for the cash hands down) antec trupower trio 650 watt. \

make sure your not angry when putting your cd drives comment on my broken cd drive :S

Long live swg! (pre cu ya dig?)
