Pretty good case 11/14/2009
This review is from: Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
I've had this case for about two months now, thought it was time to write up one of these.
-simple look, no bright LEDs
-lots of ventilation obviously, purchased one $5 rosewill fan for the front myself and it's great.
-really love the air filter, you can clean the inside out less just wipe the dust filter every now and then
-loving the bottom mounted PSU
-noise, I came from a RAIDMAX black case and that thing was dead silent... this not so much. The antec fans on low are louder than the fans on my old case plugged up to molex. Also the the hard drive tic is noticeable in this case, in the raidmax I could hear nothing but you can hear it pretty clear in this Antec, add rubber??
noise is really the only con I can find with this thing.
I have a OCZ ModXStream 700W PSU, the cables reached ok as seen here on imageshack:
the only thing is two of the screws won't go in as they don't line up physically, can't remember if it was the top or bottom ones. Either way that's a small nitpick as it's still in there pretty secure, and I don't move this machine much.
Overall even though the raidmax was quieter, this case is a better pick because it's smaller than the raidmax while still having plenty of room for my components, and no flashy LEDs!!
