Upon opening the box
and taking the case out, I noticed immediately there is only 1
3.5" external drive bay. A real pain if you have a floppy
and a Zip drive, there is no room for it:
For the larger 5.25" external
drive bays, there is a total of 3 which should satisfy most system
builders. The plastic spacers that are provided with the case
are easy to pop off, you won't lose any skin on this one.
There are four screws that hold the two
side panels together. The screw holes were nicely drilled, the
screws were easy to remove. On the back side of the case is an
extra 80mm exhaust fan. Antec kept good air circulation in
mind when constructing the case, a very nice touch for the
The I/O panel on the back of the case
provides support for standard ATX form factor motherboards.
There are 7 total expansion slots which provide enough room for even
the most demanding systems. Enough room for all your pci/isa
Another nice touch about this case is
the lock extension on the back of the case. There is a notch
where you can attach a lock to prevent intrusion inside the case.
A great idea for people who frequent LAN parties.
A final run through on the exterior of
the case shows the 'feet' of the case. Often times you may
bump into the case, what better way to prevent it from falling and
breaking than to have support feet.
