    Hmm - interesting. I really like my 200 Antec case.... The question is do I need USB3 on the front?? Probably not worth £45 when a long cable will do the job!

    Re: News - Antec One chassis to satisfy the needs of budget builders

    Just in case anyone is as curious as I was about how HDDs are mounted in it:
    source

    Pretty good HDD mounting system, even if the wrong way around (I suppose the rationale was cleaner cabling, but normally I dislike having to take off the right panel after the build is done). Not bad for the money though. But I really don't like the side panels, and the uncut I/O panel and PCI backplates are a freaking disaster waiting to cut people to ribbons.

    They shouldn't call it 'the one' unless it's frickin' awesome, and it isn't. Although I'm sure it's decent enough, just not for that name.

    And yet another case to make my decision on which case I want an even harder one. It looks decent and the price tag is by far the lowest one out of all the cases I am interested in. Ugh...

    Will be looking out for reviews of this. I want to stick my second machine in a quiet case without breaking the bank to do it.
