Antec DF-85 Black Computer Case With Side Panel Window

The Antec DF-85 is overall a nice case. Has plenty of room inside for a full length graphics card and has good cable management. I do wish the side of the case where the cords are hidden was a little thicker. Sometimes if you aren't careful you can see the cords pushing on the side as it is a little flexible. The cooling in this case is where it shines though. Between the front three fans, the back two, the top two, and the optional side fan, I have had no problem keeping all my components cool even under the highest of loads. The front three fans have removable dust filters on them however the rest of the fans do not. Also included are the hot swap bays for your hard drives. I don't use these so I can judge on them along SSD hot swap on the top of the case. One thing that I do find pretty annoying though are the front covers on the 5.25'' drive bays. While these do help keep with the look of the case, it is annoying to have to open them when I want to use the drives.
Overall I like the DF-85 very much, however for about the same price you can pick up the HAF-X which I hear is a bigger case and maybe be better than the DF. However, you want go wrong with the DF-85.
