  1. where? i just watched a ton of reviews on it and decided its going to be my case. theres a combo on newegg atm that takes it down to 120$ but obviously 100$ is better.
  2. Im a stock holder on Tigerdirect, enough to where i get a nice discount on some items.
  3. I have my current build in my sig and i want to get this one ready for bulldozer try to have the best of both worlds lol.
  4. neat. well from what i've seen and read:
    Pros-
    Mostly open design
    Lots of room
    Rail based HDD mounts
    Neat spring loaded thumbscrews
    Lots of tooless stuff
    Cable management stuff everywhere
    Removable top makes it easy to mess with the ports and such there

    Opinion/Either way-
    Looks good/unique
    Fan controls on the outside of case @ 20w per fan max of 5

    Cons-
    No usb 3.0 port
    The door/cover directly blocks a good spot for an intake fan
    No removable mobo tray
    You can't get the sexy red one for 100$ :(
    Price is steep at 140$ with the 1200 and 932 so close but at 100$ it'd be nice for you.
  5. I dont like the fact that its 99.99999% plastic. and with that gloss its a finger print magnet.

    Its actually not that much plastic. One of the reviews I saw the guy took off the majority of the plastic. He also commented on how surprisingly study the plastic parts were, but at its core the case is mostly steel, not plastic. As for fingerprints, well thats true but I don't find myself fondling my case too often...
  7. LOL! I change parts so much its not funny lol, more or less i like the look of the case i dont like the fact that it only comes with half the fans so adding more will have to happen

    Heres the review I'm talking about. check the 5 minute mark to see the top plastic taken off, and the 4:20 mark to see the front plastic taken off. you can see its almost all steel remaining so at least you don't have to worry about that.
  9. Well no crap the frame is metal lol, i meant the shell sorry i worded this wrong.

    Can you link me to the black and green case? I've only ever seen the 3 basic colours. (im in canada)
  11. The best in looks would probably be the white one. But i also do think the plasticky feel is something which i don't like as well. But for a cheap price at that its a good buy!
  12. I have a friend who has the white version, and although it looks very nice it does not feel as good quality as my Antec 1200 v3.
  13. Yeah i would say that it only looks good, but the feel is just not there.

    I think women would like it and also noobs! :na:
  14. Lmmfao, I need a case that is going to fit the cooler-master v10 in it the choices seem to be slim. I already have the cooler so what do you recommend then? This is a personal opinion but i think that everything that Antec makes is cheap crap IMO.
  15. Silverstone FT02. Raven may also fit.
  16. I have the rv01 the v10 fits in there, but that cases cooling is crap, I dont like the rv02 and the ft02 is a bit pricey.
  17. The only other option that comes to mind is the HAF-X or the RV03!
  18. rv03 has horrible ratings lol.
