    Loved the 300 and would probably go for this if I was buying a budget system.

    I think id stretch and get the 300r. It looks like it's in a different league, haven't actually used one though.

    I really like this case. I'd love to see it in mATX option. There's something about the soft lines on the top exhaust fan I find really appealing. Hope they make a smaller one as well :)

    I really hate my antec 900 case. Cable management was a nightmare. Collision issues between hard drives and graphics card. Loud fans. Awkward to do any work in the case. No cutouts for the heatsink. It just goes on. For some reason at the time I bought it, the internet was full of people saying how great it was. Anyway this looks like a slight improvement but not much. Also I notice there doesn't seem to be a hard drive in the example build. Just as well probably as the hard drive bay seems to be a place for cable storage.

    I'm sure bit-tech didn't like the 900 either..

    Oh no, they didn't

    So if they're scoring this one well then I'd think that it's definitely improved.

    I'm not a fan of Antec cases ever since they stopped really focusing on the epic enclosures such as the P1xx series.

    Now those were cases. A bit boring yes, but they were quite moddable and generally aesthetically pleasing.

    How does the NZXT Source 210 Elite compare?

    The 670 will fit fine, they said that a 680 can fit so I'm sure there will be no problems :)

    Just make sure power connectors are top and not end mounted!

    I have an Antec Threehundred, which I modded a few years back. And just like the Threehundred this "One" makes a good basis for a casemod.

    The only thing I really dislike is the amount of 5.1/4" bays. Two should be more then enough actually, as you can fit an optical drive and a fancontroller or resbay there. Anything more than that is wasted space imho.

    In my Threehundred I mounted the HDDs in the 5.1/4" bays which improved airflow alot, and I'd recommend it for the One aswell.
