My System Specs

Default Antec P1000

Not quite sure what to think of it just yet. Seems like a ton of LEDs though...

I have pics of this....man, after the reviews this week I am going to HAVE to post my CES photos.

Basically, it is a big hunk of plastic.

ugly yes, but it looks like they have fixed a few Antec specific gripes. Cable management looks decent, the drive bays pop out the front in a 900/sonataIII hybrid, but damn ugle and no idea what the boxes on the backside of the mobo are for...

I figured as much. Heck that whole top piece looks like shyt. Could they have used cheaper plastic?

Big ruiners, I was all pumped when I saw the title now I'm scared to look.

Update: I was right SOB!! what the hell Antec? That thing is god awful and its being marketed as the P Series no no no keep this up and I'll be jumping ship before it even takes sail. This is a remake of the P160, I guess they have to have at least 1 ugly case in each enclosure line.

Man I hope they never release this piece of junk,

EE

this should be a new series - the gamer fail line
this doesnt even suit any bit inside the performance line
