Very professional case for cheap

By 

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Antec AN-300 ATX- Micro ATX Gaming Case ATX Case:

I highly recommend this computer case. First, the looks. it is all black on the outside with no childish transformers-type graphics or edges. It is professional, mature, and serious looking. It comes with 2 120mm fans, 1 mounted in the rear exit and one at the top to disperse heat upwards out of the case. There are an extra 3 fan slots, 2 in the front and 1 in the side panel that you can utilize if you would like to circulate more air into the case. The front panel has 3 removable panels for 3 optical drives. There is a dust shield incorporated into the front so that cleaning becomes simplified for the owner. Everything in the inside is placed well and everything mounts up. There are not fitment issues whatsoever. I would also like to add that this case comes with PLENTY of screws which is always convenient. The case also has a small side compartment to allow computer builders to hide their cables (in the case that the builder is utilizing a non-modular power supply. The only drawback of this case is that the 2 USB ports in front of the case are right above the optical drives, which allows the dvd/cdrom drive to push on the mouse cord when the drive opens up. This problem, however, is common in numerous cases so it's not a unique problem by any means.

this case is worth it

By 

from San Marcos, CA

Comments about Antec AN-300 ATX- Micro ATX Gaming Case ATX Case:

Right now my antec 300 stores a quad core processor a single graphics card and two hard drives. This thing is a medium-sized case but to me it reminds me a bit of a full power because how spacious and how will it cools. The cooling is what got me to purchase this antec 300. It can accommodate a lot of fans. It comes with three fans already, two of them are standard size while the large one I believe is a 140mm fan. Even if you do not add anything these three fans will cool your components just fine. For those that want to take a more safer route, you can add more fans I believe they take in the standard size which is 120mm. It looks great on the outside although the inside could be done better. There is zero cable management on this case and it is unfortunate that the inside color does not match the outside. But given its price point, it is well worth it.

Hard to beat

By 

from La Crescenta, CA

Comments about Antec AN-300 ATX- Micro ATX Gaming Case ATX Case:

The 300 is one of Antec's introductory models. For an introductory case it is pretty hard to beat. It looks good and doesn't have any lights or leds flashing or making noises or any of that nonsense. It fits your power supply (bottom mount like how they do it now a days) and it gots several spaces for your dvd and or blu ray drives. I had no problem fitting my harddrive in there and there's room for more. The case has fans and plenty of them. I actually don't have all of them running as it is a bit redundant. Everything about the Antec 300 just works and I don't see anything really to knock about this. There is a nice panel in the front that serves as a filter. Over time this area will collect dust as the panel traps dust that flow in and out. It's convenient because later when the panel really accumulates with dust you can take it outside and get a can of compressed air and wipe the panel clean. The Antec 300 is great and I'm enjoying mine.

Good case

By 

from Alhambra, CA

Comments about Antec AN-300 ATX- Micro ATX Gaming Case ATX Case:

Been enjoying my antec 300 for some time now and it has really been a good case thus far. This is a non fancy case which has some flair to it. It's not a full length case which right away tells you that this is not for the ultra seriuos guys with dual graphics cards in sli or crossfire and with full regular sized motherboards. This case won't do that. This case though is a good bang for the buck case that will fit smaller sized motherboards (micro atx) with a single card. My card has plenty of space in the antec 300 but for some of the larger cards like the 6990 that's coming out, i'm not too sure if the antec 300 is going to be up to the job. Also, my heatsink is pretty close to the side panel and i'm not too confident that a large massive heatsink will fit under the panel. If you leave one of the panels off then this is not an issue but still, not too many people will be open to permanently leaving the case open like that. For what it's worth this is good.

Economical case

By 

from South Pasadena, CA

Comments about Antec AN-300 ATX- Micro ATX Gaming Case ATX Case:

This is a very economical case. Another way of saying this is that is a very low priced item that is of great quality. Antec always makes good products and the Antec 300 is just another example. It is a mid tower case, so it fits the small motherboards. If you have a regular sized motherboard then you may want to get one of Antec or Cooler Master's full length cases (which should cost significantly more though). This thing has a very strong finish and everything feels bulky and strong. There was no metal flexing, no screws out of place, all the fans that came with the case operated and are still operating, the panels come out with ease etc. There have been no incidents to report so far. To some people they may be put off by the fact that this Antec 300 comes with no power supply. But that is how most cases come and it is only the bad cases or the really good cases that come with power supplies (for most situations). And on top of that it's good that the antec 300 doesnt come with a case because you can put a nice aftermarket one in.

Antec Three Hundred Computer Case

By 

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Antec AN-300 ATX- Micro ATX Gaming Case ATX Case:

The Antec Three Hundred case is a ATX/micro ATX computer case. It contains three 5.25 inch bays, six 3.5 inch bays, and 7 expansion slots. Additionally, there are five large fans to keep your system cool. Two in the front, one in the back, one on the side, and one on the top. The front panel also has a pair of USB inputs as well as a jack for headphones and microphones. Even with all this, the case isn't too big or heavy. It is fairly affordable too. The case does a good job keeping you computer components well ventalated due to the numerous fans and allows you system to operate smoothly. It is a big on the loud side though as sound isn't insultated and the fans are constantly spinning. You can control the speed to the fans but of course that is at the expense of tempurature. Overall, I enjoy the case. It looks nice, is a nice size and weight and very affordable. Antec manufacured a quality case to last long.

best case in this price range

By 

from East Brunswick, NJ

Comments about Antec AN-300 ATX- Micro ATX Gaming Case ATX Case:

Antec has been known long for it's quality cases and power supplies. The Antec 300 is such a case, sans the power supply. It is possibly the best case in this price range. It is constructed of steel and plastic, so for those looking for aluminum cases, this is not for you. But it is still lightweight, and very sturdy as you'd expect from Antec. The black paint is very high quality as well. It is a mid size ATX tower, but very compact. There are 2 included fans, but can accept a total of five fans (two rear, two front, one side). Air flow is very good due to this. The power supply sits at the bottom which puts the heaviest component of the computer at the bottom, lending to a more stable case. The power, reset, LED's, audio and USB ports are at the top, which make it very convenient to power on, reboot the system, plug in USB drives and devices, headphones. For budget builders looking for a high quality case, look no further.

Great case at a reasonable price

By 

from Philadelphia, PA

Comments about Antec AN-300 ATX- Micro ATX Gaming Case ATX Case:

Antec is a respected case manufacturer among other things, and this Antec 300 case continues that tradition of excellence. The job of a computer case is its core a simple one: hold components together so that they can work together. All computer cases accomplish this, so the deciding factor in choosing a case comes to the subtleties of case design, which aren't always obvious: cable routing, number of vents and arrangement, cleanable filters, PSU arrangement, etc. While certainly not the leader in any of these categories, the Antic 300 is a solid performer in all of them, and importantly, does not have a high price tag for them. Cable routing is relatively easy in this case as there is adequate room behind the mother board plate and access slots for cable routing. There are two fans in front, one on the side, one on top, and one in back for good cooling. I've covered the fan on the side as it disrupts clean airflow from the front of the case over the CPU cooler to the back and top fans. Good cooling is not just about the number of openings but how they contribute to the movement of the cooling air over the components. There have been numerous tests which have shown that side fans can actually reduce the cooling effeciency of a case by disrupting air flow.

All in all this is a great budget case. I have considered more expensive cases in Antec's lineup but don't think they're worth the extra money. This is a great case that won't hold your system back. If yout want to spend more money on your computer, there are better places to put it to use.

My favorite value case

By 

from Edmond, OK

Comments about Antec AN-300 ATX- Micro ATX Gaming Case ATX Case:

I have put a total of 5 systems together in the past 6 months inside of this case. Not only is this computer case stylish, but it is extremly funcitonal as well. It has spaces for front, rear and top mounted fans and provides excellent airflow for all of my electroics housed inside. I am running a watercooled system in this case with the radiator mounted off of the rear of the case and there is plenty of room inside for my the pump and all of the tubing. One area that may cause trouble in this case is the video card length. There is a hard drive bay that is directly behind the end of the video card. For extremely long cards, they may either not fit at all or you may have a hard time inserting the power cables. For my own Antec 300, I have drilled additional holes for routing and hiding cables. This case lacks in a really good cable management solution but can easily be fixed by either buying the next case up in the series or dremeling out your own holes like I did. Things I love about this case: Top fan blowhole, SSD mounting space on the bottom, bottom mounted powersupply, tons of room inside, dust filter on the front of the case, includes a bunch of thumb screws

great quality case for cheap

By 

from South Pasadena, CA

Comments about Antec AN-300 ATX- Micro ATX Gaming Case ATX Case:

my antec 300 has faithfully been serving me for a little over half a year now. i have absolutely zero complaints so far and have not had a single hiccup. let's start with the outside: it is a very professional looking case with black paint and no fancy techno/transformers lines. it is all business. it features 2 large fan slots in the front for a nice push pull fan set up (one fan pushes air in, one fan pulls air out). the case comes with 2 fans with the case. they are located at the top of the case and in the rear. in addition to the 2 fan slots in the front, there is also a fan slot on the side panel of the case. so in sum the case comes with 2 fans (rear and top) with an additional 3 fan slots for use as the user sees fit. i currently have the fronts filled in (for a total of 4 fans) and my processor, gauged by cpu-z, is icy cold (i also have a heatsink, however). as for fitment and alignment of holes, this case is top notch. no problems whatsoever and highly recommend!
