Awesome case

The good:

I love the removeable door and the fan holders which make putting fans in really easy. Overall good solid design. Antec coustmer service is the best ever, when i got mine the front bezel was cracked so i e-mailed Antec, who i didn't even buy the case from and they sent me a new bezel completely free. Needless to say i will buy all my future cases from Antec. With a Volcano II and two extra case fans my 1.33Ghz Athlon runs at 40 degrees.

The bad:

Nothing.

Summary:

the only thing i regret is not getting the 400 watt powersupply. Even though my system has never crashed it would give me peace knowing i had a little extra room. My advise; go for the SX-840 with the 400 watt ps.

Perfect Athlon Case

The good:

Excellent construction, easy to work in, great ventalation

The bad:

Should have an air filter behind the front panel and front USB ports.

Summary:

Same size case as the 10x0 with the same number of drive bays as the 6x0 case, so there is lots of open room and a big, open air intake area in the front. With the 2 rear exhaust fans, and the fan in the PS, there is enough air flow to keep my 1.2 Athlon (OC'd to 1.35 ghz) at 44C with only a Thermaltake Volocano II. With so few fans needed, and the heavy duty construction, this makes for a very quiet Athlon system.
The best aftermaket case I've come across in 17 years of using PC's.

The bad:

Front panel can be a little stubborn but not too bad

Summary:

SUPER FOR OVERCLOCKERS LIKE MYSELF!!

Nearly case perfection

The good:

almost everything, including spacious interior, good ventilation, and great value.

The bad:

removable front plates connected by flimsy plastic pieces, no slide out motherboard tray

Summary:

This is one of the best cases you can get right now. Even with its lack of motherboard trays, the spaciousness of the interior makes it really easy to install even larger motherboards. I have the cables tucked away nicely out of the way, just because there is like a 4" clearance around the edge of the board, once you remove the drive cage. That means no more sneaking around components when you have to work with dipswitches, and you can diagnose things much easier! Highly recommended.
