Product Introduction



It looks sleek. Has just the right colour. Is roomy. Keeps cool. Is silent.
I will show that the case can do all of that and much more.
How's that for an introduction? Sounds like a sales pitch but kinda is too.


When I first spoke to Antec Inc. about doing a review on this case I pointed out that a lot of people said I couldn't keep my SCSI drives cool and that there was no case that could fit all of my junk. I disagreed and so did Antec Inc. So they sent me the case and I couldn't wait to build my system in to it.


Let's see if it is good enough for me and any other poweruser that will come along.
