4 out of 5 eggsFairly good

Pros: Nice looking case that's still tough looking without having gaudy LEDs or xtreem designs. 2 USB 3.0 slots on the front. Good quality metal with no burrs, was not worried about cutting myself inside the case once. Very spacious inside the case. Fits an R9 280X with no problems and with 4-5 inches to spare. Already has a 2.5" spot for SSD (make sure you screw it in first before installing card). Blue light power strip on the front of the case is nice looking. Comes with a fan controller.

Cons: As with any case, the stock fans that come with it generally aren't the highest quality you can buy, and these aren't much of an exception. They do cool down the system, but are fairly loud at high RPMs. The top front fan is already making a grinding sound when spooling up after only having the case for 5 days. The audio cable is just barely long enough, being taut connected to the audio jack on the motherboard.

Other Thoughts: I have recommended it to friends, it's overall a great case. The fan going bad does suck, but fans are easily replaced on the cheap.

2 out of 5 eggsCheap Front USB

Pros: +Two front USB ports
+Filters
+Fan control on top of case
+Comes with three fans (good airflow)
+Nice hard drive cage
+Room for cable management

Cons: -Cheap Plastic. The front USB port broke into the case and now I can't plug anything into it because it has no support to hold the USB/audio on front. This is my only complaint but it really sucks that I can't use the front USB ports.

Other Thoughts: I really like this case but the fact that I can't use the USB on the front is a real bummer. I would give it a 2.5 if I could.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Computer Case

Pros: Very well designed and reasonably robust, too. Even has provision for external water cooling - don't see that every day. My full ATX Gigabyte Extreme motherboard fit with room to spare - quite surprised actually. And my 1200 Watt power supply also fit with ease.

Cons: Not really many cons I can even mention except for the motherboard standoffs. One fell out during shipping and the threads in the case were partially stripped out. Used a nut on the back side for all standoffs - problem solved. No screws supplied at all, but lots of plastic rails for disk drives.

Other Thoughts: I was actually about to cancel purchasing this after reading all the 1 Egg reviews, but I was pleasantly surprised when I received this computer case. It really looks sharp, very well designed. Don't understand all the negativity - makes no sense to me. It is a really good deal especially if I get the rebate that brings it down to $30. Astounding deal.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Top fan control (front/rear optional)

No tool drive install

Dedicated SSD slot

Cool looking power LED

Dust filters

Cons: Didn't come with enough motherboard mounting screws (3)

Other Thoughts: I had to break one of the left HDD mounting slides to put the case side back on. Instructions weren't clear so that could of been my fault, haven't built a computer in years (pre no-tool install style cases).

The control switch for the top fans control both fans, FWIW.

4 out of 5 eggsVery good case - Not great

Pros: This case has plenty of room and comes with a nice set of hardware (spacers, screws, washer, speaker.) Has the 3.0 USB hookup, yeah for that. The top of the 3.5 HD cage has a install space for a SSD (again, with applicable screws. Some don't) The top is plastic, be prepared to settle for that, if you're not aware. IT's not the best stern plastic, but it isn't lame arrsse plastic either. All in all, for the price it is well worth the $$. Comes with 3 fans, 2 top, 1 back. If on a budget, take a top and put it in front (should have probably come that way anyway. LLOLL.)

Cons: The strength of the chassis metal is below par for what I've come to expect from Antec. Realist though, for the money, wasn't expecting 900/1200 level thickness. But be forewarned, it is pretty flimsy. Not the best fans, like used to with Antec, but sure they do the trick. Have to ding a egg though for the skimpy metalness (or lack thereof.)

Other Thoughts: For a same tier case, look at the SilverStone PRECISION Series PS09B. It's actually less, and comes with padded sides for noise control. Sell builds, and wouldn't use either personally, but the PS09B rides a bit better and isn't as much right now. I would buy this GX500 again though at the right price (got a good deal here.)

3 out of 5 eggsIt's ehh, just a few things that could have made it great

Pros: Fans are cool, and silent. Case looks nice. Wire management is fine, tool less features a good. Plenty of room to work with.

Cons: Mostly not happy that it did not come with screws to support video cards weight. Had to use twist ties to keep them from hanging. The SSD bay is awkwardly placed as it is in the middle of the mount and makes plugging in the power awkward. Front audio cable barely long enough to it to input.

Other Thoughts: Save yourself a lot of time by removing top fans before setting up motherboard.
Install SSD/HDD drives before video cards, at least with my setup that helped.
If fans dont work then you forgot to plug in the 4 pin power.
If you know how to mount the video cards with given screws let me know.
It'd be nice if they provided more than 1 SSD mount.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty Good Case

Pros: Moved my pc components from a Lancool case to the GX500 due to heat issues. Installed a total of 6 fans in the GX500 and no more ramdom freezes. Plenty of room in the back for cable management.

Cons: Very thin metal construction. Already stripped two of the motherboard mounting holes. My Lancool case seems like a tank compared to this one. Power button placement could be better. The PCI expansion card mounting screw holes did not have pre-drilled threads.

3 out of 5 eggsMissing accessory box!

Pros: Case shipped very quick and got it for a great deal. Very easy to work with and good design quality for the price.

Cons: It was missing the accessory box which made it impossible to mount the HDD with the tool less system it has because I didnt recieve the mounting brackets!

Other Thoughts: Check online and there is no where to buy just the hdd mounting brackets. Someone please help or shed some light, thank you
