My System Specs

Default NZXT Beta Evo or Antec 300?

Hey HWC,

I have an opportunity to switch cases from an Antec 300 to a NZXT Beta Evo.

Do you guys think its a good idea? or suggestions?

The Beta Evo is only $40 after $20 mir and i plan on selling the Antec 300 for $40 anyway.

I have enough fans to populate all the fan holes in the Beta Evo and I like the cable management it it...

If you have used it before, please tell me what you liked about it and what you didn't like.

Thanks :)

It looks like a piece of junk just like all of NZXT's other cases. The 300 is nothing amazing either, but it's definitely better-built. I would stick with it.

I can honestly say I dislike my Beta Evo. Doesnt have a good feel to it and if you DO use the fans ports....vibrates like there is no tomorrow.

+1, NZXT cases are typically on the lower end of the quality spectrum, even though I can't stop myself from buying them. They just keep coming out with a different look I just want too badly. ><

CM690II can go for sale for $70 for the basic model all the time, you can pricematch it to that too.
