4 out of 5 eggsGood Case

Pros: Seems to work very nicely
Nice modular design
Seems to be nice and quiet with my setup
Quaint looks and design (for the anti-transformer guys)
Neat little tray under one of the modules to place small knick knacks like screws etc..
pretty roomy and toolless for the most part.

Cons: I had a little issue fitting in my XFX R9 280x card... I had to cut a bit off the middle hard drive tray to allow fitment... wasnt too big of a deal but I had read online that they were compatible but maybe it was the motherboard that made a little difference. I have a
GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

had to RMA for front door being warped the new one was much better (see other thoughts)

Other Thoughts: No real issues I did have to RMA due to the front door being warped a bit... the door stuck out unless the key mech. was locked. The new one was much better.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid and Reliable

Pros: - Beautiful sleek design
- Solid build
- Spacious
- No nonsense features, pure class
- Efficient fans
- Easy to clean
- Easy installation and cable management is painless

Cons: None, perhaps the opening between the lower section of the PSU and the upper section of the case could be larger, but it's not caused me any issues.

Other Thoughts: I've been using this case now and have rebuilt the guts once since then yet this beast remains faithful and reliable. Definitely recommend!

5 out of 5 eggsSuper quiet, clean looking, quality

Pros: Love this case. I produce and record music and this case is very quiet. I've had this case since LGA775 sockets, ran a water cooled set up. Now it has an LGA1155 with a Cooler Master V8 fan. Anyone familiar with the V8 knows it's a tall fan, most cases won't fit it, but the P183 V3 fits it perfect. Lots of room, everything is isolated with rubber bushings. 4 hard drives fit on the bottom with a pull out rack. It's a good buy.

Cons: nothing.

4 out of 5 eggsNice case

Pros: This is a nice case but after owning this and then getting a Fractal R4 recently do yourself a favor and get the r4. WAY easier to work on and quieter and just all around better.

Antec need to revise this case and take some tips(more room behind mobo, get rid of the divider separating power supply from mobo, widen the case, improve sound dampening material) from Fractal and this case could be awesome too.

In some ways the Antec feels more solid and "quality" but it lacks in so many other areas I cant recommend it when you have cheaper and better options like the R4.

Cons: Very little room behind mobo, divider between upper and lower level, top fan is noisy from being mounted horizontal I am guessing. I ended up removing it and making a padded blug to block off more noise.

I also wouldn't consider this case water cooling friendly if you are looking at doing that. You would have to do a good amount of modding.

Other Thoughts: Has great potential if Antec improves on a few areas and bring it up to date with the latest modern case features.

4 out of 5 eggsBig and Shiny

Pros: Wonderful box. Easy to work with and a great cable management design. Fans it came with are great and quiet even when set to high. USB 3 in the front is also great.

Cons: The one thing this case is missing is the detachable main board mount. Most Cases that are in this price range have this.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid, silent, fantastic case

Pros: - Very, very quiet
- Comes with 2 3-way adjustable speed fans (top and top rear)
- Great build quality
- Roomy
- Interior divider (above bottom-mounted PS) for heat control; the divider has a plastic sliding door so you can route cables through it but still keep it mostly closed
- The backside of the mainboard plate has room (and attachments) for cable management so everything stays neat and tidy
- Modular, removable drive bays make adding or removing drives simple
- Rubber mounts on removable hardware prevents noise
- Includes 2 built-in 2.5" drive bays
- Double-hinged front door opens flush to side of case
- Looks good

Cons: - Sides fit very snugly (for soundproofing I presume) and are somewhat difficult to get on at first (they do get broken in)
- Hinged front fan filters are somewhat tricky to remove, until you figure out the trick

Other Thoughts: I love this case. Noisy computers bug me; I sit next to this all day and it's whisper quiet. I built this for my work (development) computer so I'm not overclocking and it doesn't have an over the top graphics card, but other than that everything's pretty high end (or at least it was when I built it). Nevertheless, everything stays cool and quiet, and it's done a great job keeping the dust out. I just picked up a new one for a home build.

4 out of 5 eggsGorgeous, but Inconvenient

Pros: -Very attractive design
-Incredibly quiet
-All stock fans are speed-adjustable
-Front fan slots are filtered
-Dual-compartment interior for excellent heat management
-Easy drive installation
-Built-in 2.5" drive support
-Solid, precision feel in every moving part

Cons: Front door obscures an already-camouflaged power button
Front fan filters are not easily removable (incorrect manual?)
No Front fans included (No wonder it was so quiet at first!)
Front USB3 doesn't use MoBo headers (Must use rear ports)
Not much room between side panel and back of motherboard.
Both panels are difficult to align and slide in correctly.

Other Thoughts: I absolutely love this case. It's gorgeous, very quiet (even with two 120mm fans in the front), and keeps all of its innards very cool. I'd buy it again in a heartbeat just for those things.

But any time I have to turn it on (which is fairly often, as it so happens), I must open the case door and fumble for the invisible power button. And whenever I open it up to install/uninstall/troubleshoot something, the case seems to reject its own side panel, refusing to let me close it back up. I usually have to lay it on its side, and hold all of the hooks in place simultaneously as I attempt to slide it shut seven more times.

And don't get me started on having to vacuum the non-removable fan filters

*ahem* I recommend this case. It's pretty, quiet, cool, and only a MITE inconvenient.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Ample room to work, beautiful sleek design, great noise attenuation (I installed Yate Loons to replace the stock fans though), great build quality.

Cons: Probably need to install some Yate Loons for better noise reduction, carrying case around has put some small dents in the sides, plastic on top of case tends to absorb dirt or marks well.

5 out of 5 eggsGood supply

Pros: Fits in fine, fan is on the top, which means you have room for cables right up next to the supply case. Solved the problem of cables covering up the air vent that I had in the last build. Quiet and good cable lengths for a mid tower,

Cons: A little expensive, but you get what you pay for.
