that case is wayyyyy outdated AND overpriced.

Used this old case for about 5 years. It may have an unpainted interior, usb 2.0 (my older version), need a screwdriver to change anything, and have self-removing footpads, but it was a good, sturdy case.
I moved one of the front fans to the top three bays to more direct airflow to the cpu hsf, and it handles fairly large coolers and cards.

Well, that's what it was priced when released and I don't think they lower the prices of cases since it's a hunk of metal.

But yes, I'm still surprised Antec makes this thing.

I disagree, on both accounts.

Let's here more rebuttal on the matter. I'm curious to hear your side of things.

A Good comparison to this case would be the Cooler Master Elite 430 Windowed Side Panel for around half the price of this case

Reasons the CM is better:
- It's cheaper
- Has a painted interior
- In the antec you can mount 9 5.25 drives, Who really needs this? So let's just say they both have 3 5.25 bays and 6 3.5 hard Drive mounts
-The Cooler Master is updated in the looks department, Not trying to make you sound old or anything :)

Never understood the love this case got. The "Kibble" tray marketing alone makes me hate it.

I prefer a HAF.

It's where you keep your box for the AMD chip you're going to be putting in this thing after you spend half your budged on it. lol

i owned one of these years ago when they first game out.

It was a massive dust magnet.
