It comes equipped with two front Fleet-Release variable-speed 120mm LED door fans with white LED, accompanied with washable filter to reduce dust within the system. The doors can be opened to allow rapid access to the drives and two Fleet-Swap modular SATA interfaces, in a blacked-out interior with cable routing, providing maximum convenience. One rear white 120mm TwoCool fans with white LED and one top 140mm TwoCool fan ensures effective system cooling and heat dissipation.

The tray supports Mini-ITX / microATX / Standard ATX board for maximum flexibility. The 5.25" bays will hold optical drives, burners, and up to six 3.5" drives can be installed in the case, along with two more SATA bays - one external hot-swappable bay on the front panel for convenience, and another floor-mounted inside for internal SSDs. The PSU, in a departure, is at the bottom of the case, for better case stability and thermal environment for the CPU.

The side window of the case, in addition to letting you show things off, provides additional ventilation by way of the vented screen. This is a sturdy steel case, with enough cooling technology to keep things frosty in the hottest action. Take one home today and build yourself the most powerful rig around!

Pretty Good case 4/11/2013 2:08:54 PM

Pros: Comes with 4 fans and has a spot for another directly in front of my GTX 680 fans also have washable screen filter on the fans the sit in front of the hard drives. Very easy to install hdds or ssd's at later dates.

Cons: The headphone and mic jack cable for the front is very short and barely reaches to its designated spot on my motherboard. SLI configuration is impossible without leaving this unplugged, replacing this or re-wiring it to make it longer. This is something I really do not want to do.

Overall Review: I attempted SLI with to gtx 560's and its not even close at least 3 inches to short.

Seems pretty small 4/5/2013 3:23:52 PM

Pros: Looks good aesthetically. Seems to have good air flow throughout.

Cons: It seems pretty small. Everything inside is a fairly tight fit. I wanted to get a heatsink to replace my stock one, but I don't think I can fit one. Part of this is my own fault, getting a micro mobo, but I still don't think a lot of heatsinks would fit this case.

Fans Break easy 3/7/2013 3:48:09 PM

Pros: Great Case, Several fans.

Cons: However the fan on top started to whine after 2 months and a blade broke off. The fan on top had to be unplugged due to the broken blade causing the fan to be unbalanced even more.

Overall Review: Would buy another Antec makes great products. Now just have to call them to see what the warranty process is for getting a replacement fan.

Case is fine, don't expect Antec to cooperate 11/29/2012 9:34:42 PM

Pros: It's a case. It's sturdy, and has fans. Like the top dock, as well as optional bottom docks behind the fans

Cons: While it does feel sturdy, it's made of cheap plastic. I would NEVER pay the full $100 for it, but I was glad to pay what I though would be $60 with a $30 rebate.

Upon receiving the case, I promptly cut out the UPC code off of the box, and put it in an envelop with the other documentation Antec asked for. I post-marked it, and sent it in the mail. Two weeks later, I receive an email saying that my rebate request was denied, because the UPC was not included. There's a hole in the cardboard box where the UPC code was, and I put it in the envelop. I only have one box. This is my first experience with Antec, and I have to say we're off on the wrong foot.

Overall Review: Overall the case isn't worth more than $40 or so. In my opinion, white LED fans look flat out ugly on a black case. Yes, I though the classy black and white look would look cool. It doesn't. Hopefully the red LED fans I've ordered will look better.

Please Fix your Pictures to show BIG IMPROVEMENT! 11/16/2012 10:38:42 AM

Pros: besides all the good things you can learn from other reviews. there is a very big improvement that not even mentioned and no pictures. The whole product line is introduced in 2010. No cable management at that time. Now the new disign has severals holes in the motherboard panel, and the depth between motherboard panel to the back panel are bigger now (20mm) making it really easy to management the cables!

The inside motherboard use the same 0.6mm metal as the outer panels. Some cheap case will use thnner metal inside.

Cons: the case itself is not thin. 0.6mm is almost industrial standard for this price range. but since the side panel has a big plastic windows, the metal is not as solid as the back panel.

Overall Review: Not very heavy. and there is no air intake for PSU.
if you installed PSU first, Please be careful when you install other parts. Don't let small screws fall into PSU!

Update! 10/23/2012 7:36:12 PM

Pros: I had an issue with the lights. I read online that someone mentioned about the molex plugs could be the issue. So, I re-examined it, and found out that one of the plugs had a missing stem, so I took it out, re-plugged it into a molex into the psu, and viola', it worked! Looks awesome! Lots of room to move around, and seeing the white lights, instead of the normal blue, red, etc, is nice for a change! Lots of opportunities for advancement, upgrades, and adding SSD's. More than enough room for my videocards, granted, mine aren't over a foot long! LOL!! Really nice case, I got a great deal, glad I purchased it. For the $49 after rebate, I am more than satisfied!

Cons: Can't put any more fans in it. :( Granted, it does have 2 in the front, one on top, and one in the back for a total of 4. It's good, but it would be nice to add more. Oh, almost forgot, you can add another one on the clear window.

Overall Review: All in all, it's a very good case. So, if newegg has it for sale for $49 after rebate, or even $59 w/o rebate, it's a great case. And really cool to see all of your components working. In my case, I need to work on cabling! LOL!

Good Case 10/18/2012 10:34:44 PM

Pros: Very happy with this case so far. While it's basic it has 4 surprisingly quiet adjustable fans, that I can run on slow the whole time. Low noise, nice design.

Cons: I wish the front Mic worked, but that is because I bought a MoBo that does not support extra audio hookups, regardless, I am surprised the hookups for the front panel are still primitive and unchanged from 1995. Have some trouble plugging in the USB in front as well due to the bulkiness of the plastic.

Overall Review: would buy this case again, specially for the 50$ deal I got it.
