All it needs are certain minor improvements:
The case feet should use screws rather than push-pins.
Magnet needs better glue.
Could have put 140mm fan mounts on the front and/or rear.
An 8 pin EPS extension would be a lot more helpful.
If one uses internal section for front fan mount, it needs fan guard
Could use longer Audio Cable.
The 2.5″ HDD/SSD slide on the top should be allowed to slide all the way in so that the rear section can be the same level as with other HDDs, this way you can not worry about the SATA cables being disconnected.
After a usage of 2 weeks with fans running on full, the fans are pretty silent for what its’ worth, although a lot would most likely mount those fans on the front- unless they will use their own preferred fans.
Incase you’re wondering- there’s a space between the door and the front panel on both the sides when closed, this way the front fans push the air in coming from the sides.
In any case, the case is pretty good if you want to mount a multi-GPU setup- and to sweeten the deal, Antec provides 3 years- that is a year more than what almost all provide.
This is a very reasonable pricing and a very good case all things considered. Some may or may dislike the top Power/Reset buttons- but that’s more of a preference. Even considering the minor hiccups, you simply cannot go wrong if you choose this case and you are getting your money’s worth. Remember, since most cases provide about 1 inch of space between the rear motherboard tray and right sidepanel, the extra 1/2 Inch is very much welcomed. The case gets a medal of VFM and 4 stars.
