This review is from: Antec 1100 Illusion Black Super Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Strong case. Feels like it should be more expensive than it actually is. Perfect for a first time build. Very spacious. Was able to fit a large aftermarket CPU cooler & a EVGA 780 ti. Not sure if there are larger GPU's out there, but I don't think so.
Other Thoughts: Newegg has excellent customer service and quick shipping! Thanks!

This review is from: Antec 1100 Illusion Black Super Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Nice large case with lots of room inside and a drive cage for 6 internal HHD and 2 SSD's. Comes with 120mm rear and 200mm top fans installed. It mentions 7 optional fans, but does come with 2 120mm blue LED fans for the user to install. The 2 120mm fans that mount on the window are low enough not to interfere with a CPU cooler and are located where they will blow into the GPU card(s). You can install 2 120mm front fans that will install on one side of the drive cage and 2 120mm fans install on the other side of the drive cage. This gives a nice push-pull over the HDD's for excellent cooling. There is a mount on the back side panel below the access cut-out for the CPU back-plate. Here you can mount one more 120mm fan for additional CPU cooling. Speaking of the CPU cut-out, it is huge. Unless your mobo was built upside down, there is no way you can't access the back side to replace/install a back-plate. The PSU mounting allows you to install the PSU either fan up or fan down. There is a cut-out and screen on the bottom of the case where the PSU fan is positioned. This case also has four grommet-ed cut-outs for running/hiding cables, and two on the rear for water cooling.
Cons: A first of second time builder may have issues with this case. There is only a small piece of paper in multiple languages indicating where different components go. Doesn't explain how to use the tool less mounting, which is easy enough. But an explanation of the 27 different types of screws would come in handy so you know where they are used. Standard fan mounting screws are used only on the rear, top and back-side panels only. the other 6 fans each use different mounting for their location. The front fans use 2 dimples that are 1/32 inch high and 2 bolts to hold them in place. The 2 fans on the back side of the drive cage use snap clips built in. I suspect over time, these will loosen and cause vibration sounds. The 2 fans on the window have 2 posts the stick up 3/16 of an inch and 2 rubber bumbers that you screw the fans onto. How tight do you tighten the screws? How far down do you squish the rubber bumbers? 2 corners on rubber bumbers and 2 corners on the hard plastic. Again, I suspect vibration noise after time. If you have a fan controller or some other device that installs into the optical drive area, be warned if it is not full length. The tool less design requires that what is installed must push against the back lever of the locking device for it to lock in place. Again, you have 2 dimples 1/32 of an inch to hold the drive or device on one side and the locking device on the other. I had to remove the locking device and use screws to install my fan controller as it was not long enough to push on the back side of the locking lever. A manual that would show how to remove the locking device would have been helpful. The installed 200mm fan is a proprietary fan. I had to modify my fan to get it to mount into the case. Antec only has blue fans. I've had blue fans for almost 20 years. I'm sick of blue and want a different color. Replacing the 200mm fan was a chore to get the new one in. The grommets that are in the cut-outs for running cable fall out quite easily and are difficult to put back in when cables are already ran through them. Antec only installed 6 mobo stand-offs. from reading reviews this seems the norm, but maybe case manufactures should see that larger mobo's require 9 stand-offs and that a "Full Size" case usually isn't going to have a micro-atx mobo installed.
Other Thoughts: On the top of the rear of the case, there is a "controller" for fans. It has a cut-out for 2 that are marked "Rear" and have H-M-L. No switches or anything else, just the cut-outs. It also has one that is marked "Top" which has one of two switches installed. The installed switch is On-Off for the 200mm fans LED's. The not installed switch is marked H-M-L. There is also a power distribution point on the inside top rear of the case. You connect a 4 pin molex connector to it and it has five 3 pin fan connectors. If you don't connect the power to it, your rear fan will not work. You have to remove the back-side panel if you need to replace or install a HDD/SSD. with the drives installed, the power and data connectors are to the back side. The SSD's are almost impossible to get at since they don't slide back as far and are under the optical drive cage. After removing the rear covers for expansion cards, the metal between the slots is really flimsy. I bent everyone as I was installing expansion cards. Makes me wonder just how sturdy is the rear having a fan, 2 GPU's and 2 other expansion cards installed. The front panel USB 3.0 cable does have headers so you can use those as USB 2.0 if you don't have USB 3.0 or if like I did, have a different USB 3.0 jacks. It does have thumb-screws for the expansion cards, but I just prefer to tighten items like these down with a good old screw-driver.
