The case looks boring, it seems like there out of design ideas. :P

I actually like the look and the fact that Antec switched to side mounted HDD bays, as it was long overdue IMO!

I agree Speed, this is a solid looking case. It's not too overstated, but it's flashy enough to catch your eye. Nice to see solid cable management in this series, too. That was my biggest gripe with the original 1200, the minimalist cable management system that it had.

Case: NZXT Source 530
PSU:PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk III 750w
Memory:Corsair Vengeance LP 1600MHz 9-9-9-24
Mobo: Gigabyte Z87x-UD4H
CPU: Core i7 4770k @ Stock for now!
GPU: EVGA GTX 770 Hawk @ Stock for now!
Cooling: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo With 1x stock fan, 1x CM Sickleflow fan
Storage: 2x 1.5TB Western Digital Caviar Green, 1x 1TB WD Caviar Blue, 1x Mushkin 240GB SSD

You must hate the majority of Lian Li cases then. :rolleyes:


I like the look of the 1100, like Speed and iskout said. Nice and simple, nothing flashy or gaudy, just a clean looking case that anyone would be happy to go for.

It actually doesn't look bad at all, but it does seem a littlle cheesy that a $130 case that can take up to 9 different fans end up with 7 of them being optional.
