4 out of 5 eggsNice case, high price

Pros: I purchased this from a different site for $50. For that price it is an absolutely great case. I also have the DF-35 which is a little easier to clean, but they are both great cases.
Airflow is very good, I use all Enermax fans and get exceptional temps while gaming. The DF-35 has better cable management slots, I am sure the DF-85 is even better, just not cheap.

Cons: Mesh like filter over the front fan area, I removed to increase airflow. Not really a con but it was restricting airflow.

Other Thoughts: Didnt care for the fans and replaced them with Enermax fans.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Case!

Pros: Awesome design with a 140mm top exhaust, bottom mounted PSU slot, dual 120mm intake fans and a bracket for a fan on the side panel window (if you really want it).

Cons: I wish the motherboard tray had more than 1 hole for cable management. Although, it does have a hole for changing the back plate of your heat sink without removing your motherboard.

Other Thoughts: The cables for the front-panel connectors could have been longer. But they work, and the client was happy with the build... so meh...

2 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: It looks sharp. Fans move a lot of air. Easy to remove front mesh screens.

Cons: The fans that come with this case are good fans, but they are loud...
There is no way to put the pci metal slot covers back. Once they are off, they are off. Not that big a deal but I like to keep my machine looking nice and having 2 empty pci covers on the back doesn't do it for me. It is cramped in there with my Corsair tx750, no modular...no good places to hide the wires with the bottom mount.

Other Thoughts: Antec punked me on the rebate. I made the purchase the evening before and everything was processed the next day after the rebate had ended. I tried to explain that to them and that this was my fourth Antec case, first through newegg. They didn't seem to care at all. Not going to waste time for that small a rebate but it was still upsetting that they would not help out a returning customer.
Last Antec Product I will ever own, period.

4 out of 5 eggsNice case

Pros: Antec
Black
Window

Overall I like the case, its nice. Not very sturdy like the Antec 900 series but better than the Antec 300 imo

Cons: No front fans installed, they must be purchased separately. Aluminum feels a little cheap.

5 out of 5 eggsSurprisingly amazing

Pros: Very nice looking I didn't think it was going to look this nice.

I put all red fans in and man this thing really looks amazing

Plenty of air flow
nice paint finish
very nice looking
no heat issues
SSD slots
Great quality case.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: It's recommended to buy 3 120mm for 2 front fans and one side fan if you're worried about heat issues.

But the case is amazing.

5 out of 5 eggsDecent case

Pros: Nice build quality considering price. Roomy. Blacked out interior. Large CPU cutout (although I didn't have to use it since this was for an old Pentium4 system). Decent sized window. No cr*ppy plastic toolless anything inside the case (4 thumbscrews hold the case sidedoors on but that is not a bad thing). :) Has room for 5 internal 3.5" HDD and includes a rubber mounting kit for an SSD to be mounted to the floor at the bottom of the drive rack. Case is very deep so it can hold long graphics cards. Rugged looks. Nice airflow design. Rear 120mm fan has blue LED's in it and 140mm blowhole fan doesn't have any lights. Front panel LED's are not retina burning bright but just a blue for both and are behind a 1mm pinhole. Reset and power switches are intergrated into top handle decoration and don't detract from overall looks. Removable air filters in front panel of the case (although I didn't try to remove them yet so I'm not sure how difficult it would be).

Cons: One major con for me is the lack of a user guide. Only thing you get is a multilanguage feature leaflet and a instruction guide showing the SSD mount.

The following cons are not dealbreakers but I feel they need to be mentioned. The card slot covers are twist outs instead of real covers. Front panel audio ports are not marked as to which is which. I prefer a different color LED for power and HDD activity but this is just a personal perference and would probably be an easy one to fix. PSU is bottom mount which is good, but I was expecting a fan port in that area so it would be drawing cool air from outside the case. I could easily add the port but the rubber feet are not verry tall so there is little clearance for airflow drawing in air from the bottom unless you shimmed the feet with something. Not really worth it in my opinion. The PSU doesn't sit flat on the bottom but there was ony about 1/8" clearance which I didn't think was enough for proper airflow so I flipped it fan up.

Other Thoughts: As mentioned above the lack of a user guide is a poor decision. I would at least like to know how to remove the filters. I'm sure I can figure it out when I need to so it's not a big deal, it just didn't seem intuitive. Also the case fans have the 4 pin molex connector instead of a std 3 pin header plug and the leads didn't seem long enough to reach where I needed them. All in all it's decent case but I think the price should come down a little to make up for some of the shortcomings. I would buy again.
This was purchased for my son's PC because the old case he had didn't have good airflow in it. His build is an older 3.2 GHz P4 that has a heatsink/ fan with an active therm probe attached to control the fan RPM (TT Spark 7). The fan would constantly be near full speed when playing games like Halo or Quakelive and was quite loud considering the PC sits at ground level. Now the system seems to operate quieter than before and the exhaust air is cooler that what I felt with the old case.
