Antec GX700 Review

DF85.ai

There haven't been too many cases that I would consider as an option for my own rig that weren't made by Lian Li, Fractal, SilverStone, or Zalman. However, Antec thinks they can get on my radar by wooing my alter ego, the one that plays Call of Duty 'till 4 in the morning jacked up on Mountain Dew, Sour Patch Kids, and stale Cool Ranch Doritos.

Antec Performance One – P180B

Having been around the block a few times, and having been burned a few times; I have my preferences in chassis'. I have purchased and used a ton of cases and always seem to go back to my Lian Li PC-70 series chassis.

There are cases out there that look like malformed bubbles, cases that look like transformers, cases with bubbled water, and my personal favorite the cases that look like "Hello Kitty" (sarcasm).

Enter the Antec Performance Series P180B. Read More »

Today I will be reviewing the Antec Sonata Mid Tower case. I was immediately impressed when I took the case out of the box. The sheer weight told me that this was a solidly built case. But the thing that took my breath away was the absolute beauty of the paint job. The fit and finish of this case is amazing. The Piano Black paint is buffed to a very high sheen (you can actually see your reflection). I tried to get a picture of this but it wasn't to be. The pictures of it really don't do it justice. It has the look and feel of an automotive quality paint job. Read More »

Antec Solution Series vs. Akasa-824

OK, you went into the local PC mega-retail store because you have been reading about these heatsink thingies on the ‘net. You peruse the aisles of overpriced video cards, keyboards and floating, optical mice that know where you want to click before you do. Then you spot them. Those hunks of metal with the funny looking blades and some kind ... Read More »
