Antec GX 700 Mid-Tower
OverviewHardware: Cases & PSU
WHAT WE LIKED:Low price point, many cooling options, integrated fan controller, flat side panel that's begging for a window.
WHAT WE DISLIKED:Front plastic feels cheap, audio cable too short, tight spacing on backside of motherboard tray, who still uses knockout plates on 5.25" bays?

But how many features can be included for this low of a price? Let’s find out, shall we?
