This is a excellent case, a lot better than any Dell case offered. The create quality is amazing, and every thing about it screams top quality. It's also really quiet, because the side panels are plastic with laminated metal for fantastic appears.Plenty of room for expansion, and you can route the energy supply cables behind the motherboard for superior airflow. It's heavy, but that is to be anticipated with such a good case. I recommend the CP-850 or CP-1000 energy supplies by Antec, due to the fact they are a larger form issue (non typical, but made for this case), and permit greater high quality elements inside the energy supply for a decrease cost.

Very solid create, makes use of Nikon-like composite plastics and steel in most areas.Removable HDD cage is quite handy (I currently have 4x HDD's in it). The rubber gaskets for every tough drive basically eradicate the usual HDD in search of you generally hear.Does a excellent job of dampening sound. With each side-panels on and anything running you only truly hear a dull hush//seeping of air (will almost certainly be a little louder when i add the two additional fans i'm arranging to).General i'm pleased, it's a solid case with plenty of space to grow and it looks fantastic. Tool-significantly less install is only really for optical drives which is a bit annoying since I only have a single optical drive and 5x HDD's. Installed fans seem to be of decent adequate quality, but it would have been good if at least a single of them was installed in front of the HDD cage to begin with.

Appears fantastic on the outside fancy compartments on the inside severely limit space. Front usb port broke just about instantly. Good swinging door is basically always in the way and can break off pretty very easily. Purchased it just before I knew much better, the Antec 3 hundred is nonetheless the ideal of the bunch.

Cons: USB3 front port cable snakes around to back. Finish maybe collects fingerprints too easily?

Pros: Looks GREAT! Lots of room for more case fans, comes with 2 reasonably quiet fans installed. Locking front panel.
This case was a pleasure to work with. The bottom powersupply compartment maybe is a little weird for me, but it works nicely. Everything about this works nicely. Price is good, and once again, it LOOKS AWESOME! One weird thing about it is the front usb3 port, has a cable that is meant to snake around to the back and plug in there; this is a really weird thing to see, it made me think "jimmy-johnny" a bit. The reason for it is that when this case was designed, USB3 front ports on the motherboards was rare, so it makes sense. It's just maybe the only bad thing about it. Regardless, I would buy another of these for myself. (helped a friend with his when he purchased a new system)

Nicely designed layout, very quiet, good airflow (for me at least) Side panels were rather hard to latch back into place, minimal placement for any type of front panel fans All in all, although the case is just a mid tower, it fits in components much like a complete tower. A lot of the layout for cabling was incredibly uncomplicated and rather efficient given the smaller footprint. I had extremely small issues getting anything into the case.The a single downside is the only place to mount a fan for the front panel is at the middle case HDD enclosure. Putting a fan at the finish of it runs it smack into my video card which makes having any sort of fan impossible devoid of MacGyvering it in.Despite that, I've got a corsair water cooling radiator and the leading fan as the only cooling solutions and I'm operating the exact same temps as my final wide open system with 6x 120m fans. Honestly one of the finest cases I've ever owned.

This is just the quietest computer system case ever produced. The multi-layer panels just don't rattle. Tap on the outside of your computer system case. Sounds like you are tapping on a tin can, yes? Tap on the outside of the Antec 183, and all you hear is a dull thud. Why? It's mainly because the panels are laminated from layers of steel and plastic so that they don't vibrate. None that appear essential. Some power supplies don't have lengthy sufficient cables to wrap about the motherboard assistance and come in from the leading, which is my preferred method. That doesn't appear to be a con for the case, more like a con for the power provide. I had a single of these for nearly two years. I have replaced the laptop or computer inside twice. It's simply my favorite case, ever. I've been making my personal computers because 1997. Seen a lot of situations. Mainly, they are just bent metal and fancy lights. This one, and its massive brother the 193, are just built diverse. For my income, this is the way a computer system case must be created.

Build on the legacy of P180 style with well polished interiors and capabilities. Front USB three. Port makes use of a cable reroute to the back. This is really low cost way to implement a soon-to-be-typical feature set. Owned the original P180 for practically five years with great satisfaction but extremely disappointed with Antec's cost saving implementation of its USB three. front port on its premium instances.

I can't speak for the USB 3 port because I purchased mine over a year ago from Newegg but I can say that this is an exellent high quality case. By far, the very best I have ever owed.Pros: - Silent - I bought quiet video card and energy provide too but the sound dampening components and fans are outstanding.Air Filters - Excellent Air filtration. I've blown out my filters twice due to the fact settings this up. The filters catch 99% of the dust. I have but to clean out the inside itself mainly because it doesn't want it.Cool - 120mm fan in front of the drives, 120mm fan behind the processor and a separate PS bay at the bottom all keep the interior cool. My video and CPU fan in no way run at full speed - again quiet and cool.Roomy - Really easy to operate with. It is large, but that also attributes to keeping it cool and quite. Lots of space to disipate heat. I'd purchase another one particular. If USB three. is consideration, I comprehend, but you may consider to appear past that to get an general superb case.

The slide out drive bays are really convenient. It was nice to route power cables behind the plate that holds the mobo. The double walls and big fans makes the machine very quiet overall. Pricey.

Antec name: roomy, easy to set up. Separate compartments for temp control. 2 major cons: 1: The USB3 port on the front of the case is developed by Antec gluing a USB extension cord to the front. The cord has to be passed via the BACK of the case, looped about, and plugged into the Mobo I/O shield's USB3 port. This is ridiculous. You can not plug the USB3 port into a mobo header. Any standard USB2 style extension cord would do the identical job. (The keyhole in the back of the case is there for this cord to come out of the case. Zoom in on the screenshots.)two: The front bezel's left side fell out when I 1st picked it up. It is held on by plastic tabs. The three tabs on the left side Cannot latch onto the metal: the metal is too lengthy. The front bezel falling off a new case is a bit ridiculous.Feel really difficult ahead of you spend this considerably money on this case. I _was_ a longtime Antec supporter.

Cons: Despite good sound muffling, sounds over 30db are still going to be audible; the fan port at the top of the case can be a bit annoying to use; not enough room inside the case to do a push-pull fan setup if you have a closed-system CPU water cooler; can't mount a 120mm fan on the outside of the case for push-pull

Pros: Very good sound dampening, very pretty, 4x120mm fan slots, seperate PSU compartment, thumb screws to remove side panel, takes proprietary Antec PSUs, detatchable washable dust screens for front fans
This has been a wonderful case for me. Replaced an InWin case that I'd loved for 10 years. It's so pretty, I made space to keep it on my desk to show off it's stainless steel finish. It's a great case if you're trying to do a quiet build (read the review at SilentPC.com) - when all fans are at low speed you'd hardly know it's on, but if you've got fans that sound like hair dryers when ramped up (i.e. stock VGA fans), you're going to hear those. Still, I would research the P193 as well.

Cons: very heavyincluded fans aren't super quietno native USB3 mb headercable management and internal setup aren't super amazing

Pros: sound dampening panels; very quiet!very sturdy/solid buildstylish looking (my opinion)front panel USB3
Overall, an excellent case. Built as a part of a quiet pc, and manages to keep the noise inside. Regarding the build process, the second chamber for the PSU is a bit of a waste. I'd have liked to see an intake fan for the PSU and a removal of the second chamber altogether (however, this is an old case, so I don't blame antec). an intake for the PSU would allow for much more cable management space
