    I'm confused here..... Can someone please help?
    CPU coolers are getting larger....while cases are getting smaller?

    Hilbert, any plans for a review??

    Sure they are but when you consider an i7 4770K can be cooled by a single rad AIO such as the H60/75/80i/90 or Kraken X40/41 etc etc.

    Sure your overclocks will be limited by these coolers should fit into literally any case as majority of cases come with at least 1 120mm fan mount and a lot now are also using the 140mm mounts that you can also use 120mm fans on.

    Also with such small cases you wont be overclocking much if at all.

    it's not always true small means poor overclocking. There are some tiny cases that can easily fit a custom 240mm water loop that can OC heavily. Such as the tiny ncase m1 that is 12.6L total volume.

    Those hard drive cages AGAIN don't look removable.
    When will Antec figure out that this isn't 2009 anymore? We require and desire more options...not less.
    No wonder they lost so much standing in this industry.

    True, but remember this is a budget case. More groments, cut outs, screws, fixtures and fittings will add to cost. The market for this case isn't hardcore i7 5960X dual TITAN Blacks. This is meant for entry level hardware for beginners. You start adding in other features where the case basically falls to bits beginners are going to stuggle.

    Making it this way keeps costs down, means customers pay less, they make more money. Win on both sides.

    Agreed, If i was planning on water cooling for the first time i wouldn't be trying to put a custom loop into this case, an AIO maybe but not a full h20 kit. This is for 1/2 HDD's a single GPU and a standard cpu/mobo setup and not much more.

    At the price they're selling it isn't bad for begginers and first timers at all. I love my Corsair 900D but hell i wouldn't suggest that to anyone but the hardcore enthusiast group as a purchase. Imagine some one building a custom PC for the first time and finding out that the case costs over £200 :O
