5 out of 5 eggsFantastic large case

Pros: It's big, easy to work inside, spaces to route cables under the motherboard, and fairly customizable. The dust filters/screens on the front are easy to clean, and there is plenty of clearance for filters that could be attached by velcro or simply wedged behind the screen doors.

The case is fairly quiet, even though I added two 120mm fans to the front. It is noteworthy that I only really needed one fan in the front for my 4 HDD RAID array. There's an extra fan slot buried between the HDD's and PSU which is pretty neat for those who want to keep the HDDs while optimizing acoustic levels.

The large side panel fan could have obstructed a CPU cooler had it been any larger but luckily it just made it in terms of clearance. Sure if I push hard enough on the side panel I am able to make the fan blades kiss the copper heat pipes on my CPU cooler but it's not something I've done by accident nor do I expect to.

The big side fan is of excellent help if you are operating a dual-graphics board configuration of any kind. When it's crunch time, those GPUs kick off plenty of heat to warrant the presence of this type of fan.

Cons: The front USB ports are all blue are in fact USB 3.0 ports despite the specs stating that there are two 2.0 ports and one 3.0 port on the front. On the inside, there is a single plug with two cables attached to it that go to 2/3 of the front ports. This single jack and the two cables that are fused to it go straight to USB 3.0 header. The remaining jack has a single cable going straight to the last remaining USB 3.0 port on the front but since my motherboard does not have an additional USB 3.0 header I cannot use it. Perhaps I can butcher the cable to make it compatible with one of the USB 2.0 headers on my board, or I can get a hard to come by splitter.

Not the end of the world, and since it's my own PC I'll manage. If it were for a customer, I would have had to come up with a solution sooner than is necessary for my own purposes. On the flip side, this is a good opportunity for me to perform a practical mod.

The last but most significant con; the price. I got a reasonable price when I ordered this chassis from Newegg, but now it's out of stock here and does indeed cost a pretty penny more than it did when I purchased it. Would I have still bought it at the higher price? Probably, but I would've shopped around some more before committing.

Other Thoughts: Fans wobble at low RPM, but this is NOT a con in my opinion because the manual is pretty clear about this and how to prevent it.

I prefer avoiding plexiglass side panels; why would I want to showcase how much dust my PC can accumulate? Still, if you have one of those motherboards wit the 8 phase power LEDs on them or something, the top fan grills allow the light to shine through in a subtle manner.

I opted to install Antec tri-cool fans in the front and these fans happen to come with blue LEDs. I picked these fans because they said they would be quiet on the packaging/spec and because the LEDs would allow me to judge how much dust is on the front. They also compliments the overall ambiance of the chassis.

Regarding price, if you're building with AMD and not Intel, you can take some of the proceeds that you've saved not buying an overpriced Intel CPU and compatible mobo and put it towards this now pricey case.

Put some thought into your fan situation, you might need to get some cables or adapters. If you directly connect the included fans to your motherboard's fan headers be sure to read the manual and not lower the power to the fans from the mobo by too much. If you do opt to use fan headers on the motherboard without reading the manual, set the switches on the rear panel to high speed for all three fans. Don't even connect the big boy side fan into the mobo headers; it just doesn't seem standard enough to do that.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very large case that is perfect for very long graphics cards. Quite quiet, though not as quiet as Antec's older P180 due to more case fans (even with the fans on low, there are more places for noise to escape from the inside of the case). The PSU is completely separated from the rest of the case, though that can be changed if you wish to. This case has a LOT of airflow if you throw the optional fans in.

Cons: Here comes the annoying part... Antec's TriCool 140mm top exhaust fans rattle and wobble at low speeds. The rearmost fan wobbled on first start-up and the forward fan started wobbling a week after the build. Antec's customer service has NOT been very helpful in fixing this. While they contacted me back very quickly the representative that I've spoken to doesn't seem to have a very good working knowledge of this particular case. Quite frankly I'm worried I'll receive the incorrect fans at this point, once the replacement fan is shipped.

Other Thoughts: Be prepared for your top exhaust fans to wobble. I believe this is due to the orientation of the fans, not the fans being 'bad fans'.

5 out of 5 eggsANTEC CASE

Pros: Just what I expected from Antec a well built case that swallowed up my EVGA X79 Dark motherboard and had plenty clearance for the EVGA Video card. The two SSD's fit nicely in the middle disk cage and the 3 HD's in the cage below with plenty of air flow. The back panel hid the majority of cables, leaving a clean interior.
The 4 fans are quiet and really move the air. The ANTEC HCG M 620 power has all the power cables that might be needed. I easily moved the case up and down. When the sides were added, it became more difficult, but very manageable.

Cons: The side fans power cable was to short, so closing the side panel and attaching the fan was impossible. A call to ANTEC support and the sent out a power cable extension.

Other Thoughts: A great case for the gamers that want to over clock. Otherwise a great case for the rest of us that want quality.

3 out of 5 eggsOverall, a good sturdy case...

Pros: Large with all the modern features like USB 3.0 and slide in drive bays.

Cons: Side door difficult to close when fully loaded. Not to eager to open the case for maintenance.

Other Thoughts: I used this case to replace my aging tower server case from which has been long discontinued. That has been relegated to the bedroom for a sever build. The side door on this makes it so I have to unplug everything from the back and place this PC on the workbench every time I need to go into it. Invariably upon closing, a wire gets caught in the side fan, making a lot of noise and having to reorient wires. From a personal view I need a bigger case with easy access like the old server tower. I wouldn't let this dissuade anybody from purchasing this item since it is a nice case, however it seems tame in comparison to the tower server form 2007. I may invest in an even bigger case finances permitting.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent, simple, roomy case

Pros: Large, weighty, solid construction. Drive bays remove and lock in place easily, lots of room for any power supply.

Drives are rubber-mounted. Used correctly, you get nearly ZERO noise from your drives. Very nice.

Holds my three drives down below (with room for another)
for my RAID5, holds my HDD and 128 GB SSD up above... only two devices but the box looks as though it could easily fit three...

Removing both side panels allows EASY cable management. Lots of options for routing wires and included tie-downs and anchors make it easy.

Rubber feet grip nicely and don't slide around - absorb any vibration very well.

Removable (mostly) air filters for easy cleaning

Simple, unassuming looks. I don't like light-up-boxes.

Cons: Using my Kuhler 620, had to Dremel out some plastic on the side panel and a chunk from the 200mm fan housing - works well now though.

Mostly nitpicking...:

Wish there were a switch to adjust the speed of the side fan ON the panel - but not really a big issue.

Front door magnet grabs well on the bottom, not so much on the top.

Wish it included grommets to further seal the PSU/lower compartment from the upper compartment - but also only something an oddball like myself would care about.

Would like to see a more elegant way to power the fan on the side panel - perhaps pins on the back of the case and a ribbon cable? Having to teeter the panel and fumble with the plug each time is a pain, kinda.

Fan-covers for the top-mounted fans bend easily - rear one has a palm-dent in it :)

The case, fully empty, is over 35 Lbs. I like the heft, but moving it with 5 drives and a large PSU can become tiresome. NOT A "LAN Party" case! :D

Front panel mounts flimsy - has some gap

Other Thoughts: I got this case for $78 open box (at a retail store) with a few scratches. I would have GLADLY paid retail for it. It's an excellent case that cools very well and very quietly. I have all fans on LOW, PLUS an additional fan for the lower hard drives, and idle at 23c (Kuhler 620 and provided fan controlled by MoBo) and max out at 62c with my overclocked 2600K i7 @ 4.3 GHz. Quiet, quiet, quiet... and COOL!

I'm not crazy about the front panel - previous cases such as the P182 looked more elegant, and I wish they kept the gunmetal/silver colors vs just plain black.

I think the side fan "sticking out thingy" is pretty ugly. With liquid cooling of the CPU, the fan is not really necessary and removing it leaves me with a giant hole.

This is my first computer build, so keep that in mind while reading.

5 out of 5 eggsNearly Perfect for Home Server

Pros: Well laid out, built well, nice baby-proof design

Cons: missing pc speaker

Other Thoughts: This is an excellent case. I purchased this to replace my existing case as it was not toddler-proof as this one is. With the front door covering the power and reset switches, this is an excellent case for my data server. Lots of room and very intelligently designed. Comes with 3 large fans + 1 HUGE fan built-in.
The only regret is that it is missing a PC speaker, which is useful for headless servers.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Design

Pros: Antec has some great case designs. This one is my favorite. The slide-out drive bays at the bottom make installing/replacing drives quick and easy. There is ample room for cable paths. The cable access panels/holes are a nice touch too, especially the removable panel between the MOBO and power supply bay. I added two 120mm fans in front (they are optional) for additional hard drive cooling. This case handles a lot of air movement.

Cons: Not really a con, but this case is HEAVY, especially when drives, power supplies, etc. are added. I consider this a plus though as it keeps vibration and noise down. I mention this as a "con" only to warn others that might not want something so hefty.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful, wonderful, wonderful

Pros: Superbly Quiet, a cable management dream! Looks very professional, sexy even! Sleek and solid. One of my favorite cases; EVER!

Cons: Not really a con, but it is heavy! Of course it's steel. The biggest con is lacking a USB 3.0 Mobo plug; instead has a backplate adapter to hold the standard USB plug. Looks a little "rigged" for such an expensive case (but it works).

Other Thoughts: Antec- It can't be that expensive to have the USB 3.0 plug hook into to a compatible MOBO, That freaky looking cord loop is the antithesis of what this case is supposed to be! Throw in an adapter!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Case

Pros: This case is the best computer case I've ever owned. It's very quiet, all the stock fans have separate control switches for speed which you can change to match your needs for airflow/quietness. The case itself is very heavy which is a pro because weight dampens vibration (noise) along with the double insulated side covers and soft rubber feet, this thing is nearly silent with the fans on low. I also enjoy that all air inlets are filtered (including the big 200mm fan on the side). As far as light goes, some people prefer a lot of blinking lights and windows with illuminated components. If that describes you you should go with the Antec twelve-hundred. I however use this thing in a room with a projector and light pollution can become a problem, but not with this case. The front door blocks all light from the drive LEDs and slightly masks the HDD activity indicators. The only light that really shows is the power LED which is very small. There is a lot to love about this case.

Cons: The 120mm Tri-Cool fans are (or were) a bi*** to find when I bought this thing 2 years ago. I had to send it out to Antec to get a replacement. They were very helpful and they replaced it for free with no hassle since it was still under warranty. This may not be a problem any longer since these cases have been out a while.

4 out of 5 eggsA little tight

Pros: Large.
Many Fans.
Good dust filters.
Removable drive drive cages.

Cons: Beware if you are going to use a after market cooler, as mentioned before, the side panel fan intrudes intrudes into the case a good ways. Something not mentioned is that if you are going to use a water cooler and you want to mount it to the back fan space, in may not fit. I am using the Antec Kuhler H2O 620 and have mounted it into the aforementioned fan space, and it fits very, very snugly. I can remove the thumb screws and the side panel will not move, it can be convent went closing the case. Also be warned that if you use any screws that are not completely flush with the back face space, you will have to use a cylinder file on the side panel lip to the back or your screws will prevent you from closing the panel.

Also, the space behind the motherboard panel is a little tight. The bulk of my 20+4 MB power connector causes the panel to bulge when in the closed position.

The HD Audio connector in this case is a little short, consider an extender if out of the way is desired.

Other Thoughts: There seems to be an optional fan mount within the case, in the lower chamber. It looks to be a 120-140mm fan mount if you were wondering.
Also the magnates on the front door of this case are a little strong. They remain steadfast even while being tag-teamed by my two optical drives.
One of my 5.25 drive mounting rails came assembled incorrectly, but with some American ingenuity, I managed to remove it and re-install it correctly.

Two notes:
1) The frontal dust filters are not removable.
2) This case is heavy with all of my components in it, it easily weighs 60 to 65 Pounds. I work at UPS, so this isn't a problem for me; I regularly have to carry packages upwards of 70 lb, but keep this in mind.

The foam in the box is nice too, it doesn't make snow.

Over all, this is a great case but if you do not design you build with the up most attention to its tight tolerances, it can ruin you day.
