5 out of 5 eggsExcellent mid-range case

Pros: Light-weight, sleek styling.

This case is bigger than my old(10+ years) Antec full tower, and absolutely dwarfs my interim Antec GX700. Great, open interior with plenty of work space for easy installations; barring insertion of truly massive setups, you should have no trouble even with big clumsy hands like mine :P~. The one exception to this might come with the side window fan and upper hdd-bay fan slots filled and installation of multi-gpu setups, as very large cards and all of their respective cabling may have clearance issues.

Plenty of spare screws and offsets included, in case you haven't already collected a billion of those from previous builds—including some long screws you may need for installing your front fans, or big fatty fans.

Overall construction is pretty sturdy; the metal is a little thin but holds up under stress well...the plastic is a little iffy in places, but all in all the case feels good for a mid-price tower.

Cable-routing is a dream; this is bar-none the best case I've had yet in that respect. The rubber grommets are a tad loose, but they're easily enough snapped back into place or—as another reviewer mentioned—you can always glue them down; I had no trouble with them whatsoever.

Fans, fans, fans—120 mm fans are far and away the most space-efficient air-movers, so long as you're willing to deal with a little noise...or if your cooling needs are moderate, you can keep it running quite silent. Either way, there are enough fan mounts in this beast to provide ample airflow for any system.

Easy access, easy installation—mostly tool-free. Front panel snaps on and off quite easily by hand—this worries me a little in the long term, as the plastic clasps may wear out, but it is convenient. 3.5" HDD installation is quick and painless with six sets of snap-on drive rails included; SSD's do however require screws to hold them in place in the top slots.

The rear fan mount is a great spot for a 120mm radiator, and the top or HDD mount will fit larger radiators, assuming you have clearance around your mobo.

Better sound-cancellation than I'd expected for such a light-weight case; with a total of 13 fans inside and out—nearly half of them running at 2000 RPM—it runs pretty quiet. Not that I care about noise, anyway :P.

Cons: Packaging. This case was shipped in its bare product packaging, with a plastic bag, polyethylene foam inserts and a double-walled corrugated cardboard box with sturdy stapling. Not much protection against mishaps; mine arrived completely unharmed—the box itself was hardly scuffed—but any mishandling and a lot could go wrong.

Small nitpick: no manual included—there is a pdf version online, but it would be nice to have the option of a handheld reference without printing one out or getting one of those newfangled smartphones I've so successfully avoided up to this point :P.

No fan filters on some mounts; you'll have to buy some or go MacGyver with some pantyhose.

If you have a VERY large heatsink, make sure you connect your mobo power and fan leads before installing it, or you will hate yourself later :P.

Other Thoughts: I noticed another reviewer was having trouble finding the manual; there are multi-lingual PDF manuals(albeit for the Version 1 case, but it still applies for the most part; it helped me out with a hitch or two) on Antec's website, here:

http://www.antec.com/product.php?id=704505&fid=4&lan=us

If you're running a hot, high-powered system and especially if you have high ambient temps, the stock fans will not provide sufficient airflow for safe operating temperatures(that's what all of those fan mounts are for, though :P).

I run a moderately-overclocked FX-6300 with again a moderately-overclocked MSI R9 270, an SSD and a HDD; nothing crazy as far as heat generation goes, but on those hot days cooling really counts. I went with five additional 103 CFM fans with three as intakes(two front, one side) and two as exhaust(top); a rear-mounted 120mm 110 CFM(intake) radiator, the exhaust from which is nicely picked up and sucked out by the top exhausts; and reconfigured the Antec fans as intakes(two side, one front internal). So far this setup feels pretty effective with ambient temps ranging from 18ºC to 27ºC; waiting for hotter days to see if it needs any tweaks.

All in all, an excellent buy for the price.

4 out of 5 eggsGood. Not Insane.

Pros: This case has tons of room for most things. Good depth makes it easy to hide wires. As a mid-tower, fits a big graphics card, and probably most really big CPU air coolers. The case is built well, and the fan behind the motherboard is really nice to have.

Cons: Not very much room for a radiator at the top, but water-cooling isn't really necessary. Side panel has hideous fan mounts that sort of ruin the otherwise nice aesthetic..

Other Thoughts: Accidentally broke the tabs holding one of the 5.25" drive bay shields, but I think that might just be my clumsy sausage fingers. Case feels really solid.

5 out of 5 eggsNot perfect, but still my ideal case

Pros: - Ample room for components without the massive facade of a full tower
- Excellent cooling performance. Keeps my overclocked CPU at 60C (load) and my video card at 69C (load) @ 23C ambient
- Sleek, non-flashy look
- Excellent (mostly, see below) cable management and routing behind motherboard
- Easy installation of motherboard, drives
- Quieter than expected even with 7 fans installed: 3 stock exhaust and 4 additional intake @ 1200RPM each
- Fits 13" video cards with room to spare!

Cons: - Installation of additional fans requires some creativity with the provided screws
- Plastic fan mounting area has corner pins for fans that are easily snapped off. Mine came with 2 already broken, then the other 2 were broken during installation. Luckily the resulting holes can then be used to thread screws
- Rubber grommets protecting cable routing holes are not securely attached and will not stay in place if many cables are routed through them
- 2.5" drive bay leaves drives jutting out, almost touching the side of the case and begging to be accidentally clipped/snapped off when working on your computer

Other Thoughts: Overall this case is an excellent purchase for someone seeking a mid tower that can house virtually any high end component and cool it efficiently. Installation is mostly a good experience with the exception of installing additional fans that require screws. There are two internal fan positions that simply snap into place and those work great.

I came from an Antec 300 because it did not fit video cards longer than 11.5" and this was a great choice. Does everything I need without looking like something out of a bad sci-fi flick.

My specs:
Core i5 2500k @ 4.5GHz
- Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo CPU cooler
G.Skill 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600 RAM
Sapphire Radeon R9 290 Tri-X OC 4GB
HT Omega Claro Halo (sound card)
256GB Samsung SSD
2x500GB WD 7200RPM HDDs in RAID 0

3 out of 5 eggsTrouble child....

Pros: Modern design, the cable grommets are very useful. The case is rather big (should be advertised as a super mid tower) BUT this size is very useful if you're planning on using a modern GPU and a large CPU heatsink. It's nice not to work in cramped spaces.

In my older years I am not impressed by crazy LEDs anymore so I really liked the aesthetic of this case and the workmanship on it is good. Has lots of room for extra fans, the filters are a nice touch, the front side ports work well. Overall this is a great package and I got it on a killer deal but I had a few problems...

Cons: So for some reason Antec decided to "go green" (or cheap in my mind) where every other manufacturer still sends a manual with their products. Manuals are a good thing for DIY projects because not every build is going to be the same, especially when its the case that you mount everything to for crying out loud. The V2 model did NOT have a manual posted on their website either.

So here is my beef.... the screws for the motherboard stand offs are easily confused for the screws used for the front bay. When referring to the old V1 manual, there are 10 motherboard stand offs and 10 screws... so the same should apply to the V2 right? Wrong! They switched them and I had a hell of a time mounting my mobo because I started to strip the the stand offs. It was very frustrating but after Googling enough images I've come to realize that other people also had similar problems and many people have used either screws with mixed success. What was a simple task took me forever.

In any case the design is sound except the quality of their fasteners suck. My only gripe with the design is the bay for used for 2.5" SSDs is offset for some reason. While my normal HDD stays flush with the bay, my SSD actually stick outs another inch and looks goofy plus barely clears the case cover. I don't know why they designed it that way, with the drive so small there is plenty of room, no need to off set it.

2 out of 5 eggsMany Issues

Pros: Fast shipping ( Maybe too fast-See cons. )
Case is 2" taller and longer then a standard midtower case.
It has 1-1/8 clearance on back side motherboard tray.
Has a power supply filter which can be accessed from the left side of the case.

Cons: Cons:
1.The case does not include a mini boot system speaker
2. All fans are 120 MM. No mounting holes for 140 MM on any fan position.
3. The 3 included- Rear, and 2 top, which are 3 pin only - are not very quite.
4. No front fans to cool hard drives.
5. They removed the fan controller which was located a the rear top.
6. Only received 4 motherboard mounting screws. I need nine.
7. The front filter for 2 120 fans (optional) requires you to pop off the front bezel which was very difficult to remove.
The biggest issue is the poor foam packing design. If you look at the front on the packing box, the bottom of the case is facing to the left side, the front bezel if facing up. Some one tipped the box to the left so hard that it broke off the cheap 1-1/4 dia. plastic feet, and crushed the metal mounting pad of the case by 1/8".
I could not remove the Power supply dust filter or the left side panel. If it was protected with styrofoam instead of this type foam it could have been prevented. As it was none of the feet were protected. They just made a 2" pass-through hole in the foam. No protection for the plasic feet at all. This also left deep indentations of the feet on the left side of the packing box.
8. The metal mounting pad for the feet are 1-1/2". Why not use 1-1/2" feet ?
9. The metal used was so thin that I actually pushed out sum of the dents on the mounting pads with my thumb. There should have been more thought given to the integrity to the bottom of the case.

Other Thoughts: This thing feels like my old 39 dollar case.

5 out of 5 eggsAfter Installation (Finally After A Month - Long Story)

Pros: Ample room for the large Motherboard. Makes my MSI-970A-G46 Motherboard look like a Micro-ATX Motherboard.

If you are looking for a case to be able to accommodate say an Enermax ETS-T40 Black Twister (Purchased and Installed) or Coolmaster EVO, the 9.3 inches in depth is just the minimal clearance needed. Ample room above the motherboard for water cooling systems.

The three installed case fans are quite when used with my NZXT Sentry 3 Fan Controller. Unfortunately, the design of this controller with installation does require some few case tweaks to keep it secure due to the pressure release system in the case.

The Clear Side Window Fan Mounts are just in the right spot. Placing two additional case fans in this window will not be restricted by a large air cooler.

This case is practically a FULL TOWER CASE.
Ample Hardware Screws Provided, but see other comments.

The Right Side 120mm Fan to provide cooling to the back of the Motherboard directly onto the CPU is a Brilliant Design Feature. It does assist with additional cooling CPU Temps. A+ Feature Antec on this design option.

The right side bevel for additional wire clearance: A Must Have and again A+ Feature Antec on this design option.

Cons: The rubber grommets became a pain, and before you start running cables thru them I would suggest a rubber friendly glue. You will thank me later. Not really a CON if you do this suggestion.

Other Thoughts: Antec Customer Service even though it was a drawn out process went above and beyond in the later stages to resolve what I found to be a significant drawback with design. They are very responsive to online tickets and I had no issues with their rebate processing, a rare occurrence these days.

Screws provided for the front mounting fans are too short for a standard thickness 120mm fan. You will have to go to your local hardware store for mounting screws.

5 out of 5 eggsInitial Inspection

Pros: Absolute Value - $75 after rebate with Free Shipping.
Size - Ample, Ample, Ample (Equal to a Corsair Full Tower)
Quality Of Case Build - Slightly Flexible upon applying decent pressure, but should hold up very well.

5 out of 5 eggsExcelent

Pros: Its the best case that I've ever owned. I upgraded from a Antec 902 v3 case

Cons: I just wish that my motherboard would support all of the fans that this case has.

Other Thoughts: It has tons I mean tons of space for what ever I want. Pus it will allow me to put a 240mm rad in the top.
