5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: +Antecs best case

+Fulltower

+Airflow/Cooling

+One of the best looking cases

Cons: you will need to unscrew the drive cages to clean the air filters every few weeks/months, i know big con *rolls eyes*

Other Thoughts: I just wanted to write this review after reading the more recent reviews of this case.

1.

Yes its a heavy case, it's a STEEL FULLTOWER, do these "reviewers" not know what that means? Steel is heaiver but stronger than aluminum, and its a full tower, meaning you have massive amounts of space to work with and never have to worry about room.

2.

This is an old design, yes, its from 2008, v3 is slightly upgraded with a ssd mount and some other minor things, it is not tool-less, heaven forbid you have to unscrew something, you people act like pro system builders tech nerd experts yet get mad when you gotta turn a few screws lol, how often will you upgrade or change a part? occasionally, so the fact its not tool-less isnt a huge deal. Metal screws = more secure lock and fit than plastic tool-less junk.

3 out of 5 eggsNot That Good For Gaming Builds

Pros: It holds 9 3.5 Hardrives in 3 removable drive bays plus 3 3.5 spots for DVD/CD. Each drive bay has a dedicated 120mm filtered fan spot. Super Sturdy! With the 3 drive bay fans, 2 120mm rear fans and that massive exhaust fan on the top, cooling is top notch.

Cons: I probably gave this case a good review a couple years ago when I bought it. However, after using it now for 2 and half years and working with other cases I now see the problems.

First, there is limited support for 2.5 SSD's unless you get 3.5 to 2.5 adapters. You can mount 1 with a hokey mount in the bottom of the case.

The case does not provide native support for inside mount 240mm water coolers. Due to the limited space inside the case, I suspect you would have to go external for water cooling.

There really is not a lot of room in this case if you put a couple vid cards and other goodies inside. This is largely due to the way the drive bays are setup with a one piece metal support that runs the entire length of the case. What gaming build today is mounting 9 3.5 HD's ... or even 6 for that matter?

Get ready to fuss with a whole bunch of regular and thumb screws. This thing is anything but tool-less!

It does not support bottom intake power supplies like a Corsair HX850.

Other Thoughts: This is a sturdy and reliable case whose technology has seen its day. Perhaps still works for a multi-drive server build but I suppose there are better tool-less options for that as well. I recently did a new build in a Corsair 750D which is $10 more and it was like night and day. I like it so much better than this case it prompted me to come back and write this review.

3 out of 5 eggsOK if you want a tank for a case

Pros: This case is solid and has lots of room.

Cons: it's very heavy, bulky, and has been on the market too long ... it's past it's significance of providing room for water coolers and fans. There are lighter cases that provide plenty of room for cooling and no one uses water cooling any more since liquid cooling is the way to go.

Other Thoughts: This case is very heavy and bulky. It's passe. I've bought many of them up to 2 years ago. It's a dinosaur. But something that is easier to handle than this 18 wheeler.

2 out of 5 eggscase is a huge pain

Pros: Case is big, lots of space...

Cons: Case is horrible for liquid cooling, and the steel is so thin that tightening the fans in the back actually cracked the steel. The case also appears to have a coat of dust underneath the paint, causing it to have bumps and overall a terrible appearance. You cannot mount a 240mm radiator comfortably in this case. will be replacing. you also need to remove 24 thumb screws every time you want to clean your front fans. ridiculous. I would not recommend this case to anyone.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Bang for the buck

Pros: Very good build quality, Excellent airflow, Plenty of space
Fan filters are easily removed if you do them in the right order, Just by sliding the HDD cages out and pulling each filter up on the tab. was able to fit a cooler master evo 212 aftermarket cooler on the cpu so plenty of width for things like that, and plenty long for any GPU.

Cons: Not very good radiator support, this is not a water coolers case i could not for the life of me find an easy way to install a radiator with my MOBO and SLI setup, it's the sli that does it but still the only place you have is the front if you have long enough tubes (or a custom loop) and the back which both severely limit the space you have in there respective places. Especially if you compare it to the ease of installing a radiator to a CM HAF 932 this case is a pain in the rear.

Other Thoughts: Other than that it's a fine well built spacious case. One of my USB 3.0 ports on the front failed but meh, your mileage my vary and tech fails so it's not biggie i still have to others. Also just FYI for anyone you do need 2 internal USB 3.0 connectors for the three ports on the front.

4 out of 5 eggsGOOD CHASSIS, BUT?

Pros: VERY GOOD BUILT, this is my second Antec 1200 box.
The first one had a defective power button, after troubleshooting, i was able to use the reset button and that was it. As long as I remembered to use it instead of the power button.
This new version 3 box has the fan connectors defective.
At first I blamed it on the MOBO, but (again after troubleshooting) a determined the the fan plugs are defective. If I wiggle the connectors, the fans turn on.
I hope that New Egg would get me either new plugs or new box. The box has 2-SATA3 cables, but the ASUS x79-DELUXE only has one SATA3 socket. The SATA3 plug doesn't plug in securely and pops out. After several attempts, the pins in the socket bend and break. rendering the SATA3 useless for the front of the chassis.

Cons: This new version 3 box has the fan connectors defective.

Other Thoughts: I am not sure what to do. If I replace the chassis, it's a major pain on the neck removing all the components.
I will contact New Egg and hope that they could help me.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's Huge.

Pros: This case is gigantic. I put a full ATX board in it, and it looked like the case was going to eat the MOBO. The case is incredibly durable, I could probably use it as a really expensive step ladder if I wanted, but that would make me look like a Class A jerk off. It has plenty of space in the back for Cable management, so no worries there, and it's got SO. MANY. FANS.

Cons: -It's heavy (40+ LBS). But I expected that with all the components in. Not really a con but should be mentioned
-Case fans are a little noisy at full RPM. I will be replacing them with silent fluids later.
-HDD doesn't face towards the back as to hide the cables better.
-Front headphone AUX seems to not work very well. If I plug in my headphones all the way sound only comes out of one ear.

Other Thoughts: Cons are minor issues that's why I didn't mark the case down any eggs. For what I need the case is fantastic, because overall Antec makes real quality! Just don't expect to move this thing around too much.
