Ease of Use

I liked the look of the case. The inside of it was a little small for a ATX motherboard, but it fit. I installed a MSI P35 platinum in the case. It comes with a Antec 120mm tri-cool fan which is really nice. It also has room for another 120mm fan by the hard drives. If both fans are installed it does start to get a little loud. Overall the case is very nice.

The case is very well layed out. I especially like that nearly everything is removable. I have had problems with electrostatic discharge (ESD) on the front metalisized plastic panel. If you do a search, you will find that this is an acknowledged defect in the design. My computer will instantly freeze up if I touch the panel or try to insert a USB stick. I'd wait to buy this case until Antec has come up with a solution to this ESD problem.

I ordered this case because it comes with a descent Power supply. I was told it is very quiet. Yes indeed it is quiet and keeps the MB nice and cool. Delivery time was fast. It only took Three days.. Not bad for free shipping.

Nice solid case, finish excellent. Very quiet and has lots of room. Only drawback is that the motherboard tray is not removeable but I knew that when I was shopping.
