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.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat cooling, breaks easily

Pros: This case has some of the best air cooling I have ever seen; and with so many fans, how couldn't it? I built my computer almost 3 years ago and have never had any heat related issues.

Cons: After around 6 months of using this computer, I plugged a new mouse into the USB 3.0 slot on the front of the case... and the computer shut off after a brief message about a power surge in the USB tray. I tried to boot it up again, but nothing happened. After closer inspection, the prongs inside the USB slot had bent, causing power issues in the computer. Thankfully, I didn't lose any files... until the next time it happened. And the time after that. I can no longer use any of the USB slots on the front of the computer as they are all broken.

Also, the case is incredibly big, bulky, and heavy, which is fine if you plan on never moving it.

Fans are incredibly hard to get to to clean, and they get VERY dusty!

Headphone and microphone slots not made properly, sometimes push(?) the headphone and microphone jacks out of the slots.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this case to someone who is building a computer that is going to be in one spot for a few years and someone that regularly upgrades their computer. I have been using workarounds for my issues with this case for a year and a half now, and it's gotten so complicated at this point that some mice, keyboards, and headphones just do not work. Would not recommend.

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding case!

Pros: Fans fans fans fans! This thing will keep your system cool under almost any workload you can throw at it. 6 Fans included plus cut-outs if you feel like throwing liquid cooling in as well. Tons of room as it is a full tower but I find it helps with cable management and drive placement. Also having so many drive bays available and a ssd mounting bracket is a big plus as well.

Cons: None I can think of.

Other Thoughts: Not really a con but a additional item to consider, you may want a fan controller (which this thing will hold very well as I have one) as your motherboard my not be able to handle 6 fans without using fan splitters.

3 out of 5 eggsNot What it Used to be

Pros: This is a nice, sturdy/strong, well laid out case! I'd get another even with the cons below. Good cooling and filters for the drives,

I now have 4 of these cases, Three of the older ones (about a year or so) and the new one.

Cons: Sharp edges, poor quality thumb screws, and no longer comes with the side panel fan installed. IE: They've cheapened the case by cutting corners. They need a better way to clean the filters, but it's a problem common to most of the larger cases. Exceberated by being close to the floor with carpets and cats<:-))
I wrote an earlier review after removing the packing, but before the build.. As I said, it's still a good case, but the reduction in finish and no fan in the side panel lost it two eggs.

Other Thoughts: I like the case, but the plastic heads on the thumbscrews are annoying and uncomfortable. No where the quality of the old, all metal ones they replaced. You might want to take a fine mill-*** (Idiot file checker doesn't know proper file names) file to break the sharp edges and corners. It's a small matter to do, but be careful of the finish when doing so. You can lose some hide on those edges and thumb screws if not careful.

5 out of 5 eggsBlue-lit Spacious Comp Mansion

Pros: This case is an excellent choice for builders, but most especially those who need more room to work due to inexperience or perhaps arthritis, etc.. Access, installation, and maintenance is a breeze,as the triple-drive and front fan bays are easily accessed from both sides, so this gives you expanded access when mounting the drives, etc., as well as changing/cleaning the fans themselves. The case comes with a slew of blue LED fans that provide a luxurious amount of ventilation. The rear has a simplistic 3-speed fan control that is, for the smaller fans, easy to detach for the purposes of changing them out or connecting them to a controller device or the mobo. The case also has a gigantic blue LED fan at the top for an excellent amount of additional venting. The case offers plenty of rear and side cable/back of mobo access and the two thumb-screw sides are very easy to remove and replace as needed. Atop all of the guts I added, there was still plenty of room for the LED setup I installed. Overall, this is a solid, sturdy, roomy mansion of a case in my opinion!

Cons: The only potential negative I could recognize in this case was that the same size that allowed the wonderful cozy inside also made for a monster case dimensionally. I personally do not mind this, and I actually call my comp 'the beast' because of it, but for someone looking for something slimline or easy to move around a lot, this might not be your best choice.

Other Thoughts: Though I had experience with repairing previous machines and gaming consoles, this was my first build. I found this case to be an amazing case, both as a beginner and in general due to its spacious interior and amazing amount of ventilation. I personally love it, and barring having a size/space issue, I would most definitely recommend it for anyone.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Size, air flow, front panel ports, wire management system. I could go on. It's a phenomenal case for the price.

Cons: Heavy. This case, with everything in it, weighs almost 40 pounds.

Other Thoughts: This is an EXCELLENT case for the cost. It's not my favorite case I've ever had a computer, and I've been building computers for about 12 years now. I could not be happier with this case.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Full Sized Case I've Owned

Pros: Tons of room and not too expensive for a full size. The 200mm fan on top really helps pull air from the top of the case. Lots of room between the mounting plate and the back case panel means its easy to run all your cabling behind the plate to keep things neat.

Cons: Your mother board needs 2 USB 3.0 connectors if you want to use all three 3.0 ports on the front of the case. Otherwise only the middle and the one on the right work. Not a big deal but there is no USB 2.0 sub connector so its a mild annoyance at the worst.

Other Thoughts: Definitely worth the money. Highly recommended. The fans that come with the case are all blue lit with the exception of the rear exhaust fans. They arent that loud at all. But I would recommend buying some 3 pin Y split fan power cables since there are 6 fans on the case that need 3 pin power connections.

2 out of 5 eggsPoor Paint and Hard to Clean

Pros: Well, its big, and had decent cooling.

Cons: Ok, time to start nit picking. The paint job is absolutely atrocious. It has tons of dust particles under the paint, causing it to bubble. I am surprised I haven't seen another post on this. However, past the paint job as that really doesn't matter. The case itself is roomy enough to put multiple radiators, however the fan configurations (Yes the 2x120's that should take a 240 radiator but they put a HALF INCH GAP in between the fans so its impossible to mount properly...). Now on to the cleaning process. You need to remove 24 Thumb screws to "Clean" the mesh screens in the front (Yeah...), which is extremely annoying to have to do every 2-3 weeks to stay optimal. One of the fans blew out within the first 2 weeks, so i'm not too hopeful with the rest of them. All in all, I should have bought a different case to put my components in.

Other Thoughts: I do not recommend this case to anyone using liquid cooling of any sort. The radiator mounting configurations will not work. The fans that come with this case are prone to going out. You will regret your purchase. I livestream often, and I can't have mechanical breakdowns because of inadequate cooling or parts, so I will be replacing this case with a much better one. Remember, you get what you pay for, and this one is CHEAPPPP.
