-- Initial Impressions

   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 overclocking crowd.

   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 cards.

   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.
