Antec DF-85 Case

Large Case with lots of fans came with 7 fans lots of room and great air flow. Great built case, brought this case mainly because it would only fit my new Antec CP-1000 1000W A/PFC Power Supply. An expensive case but was worth it would recommend it

Very Good Build Case
Up to 9 x internal 3.5"
Top 2.5" hot-swap SATA (SSD-compatible) drive bay
Advanced cooling system
USB 3.0 support

A bit expensive

Great Case

This case is huge and the cooling is top class, with the filters being a 4 second job to withdraw and clean.
Everything about the case is excellent except for the instruction manual not being included and is available online, which is a pain if you have stripped your old PC to fit it into your new case.
I also found the lock on the front of the case, locked in an opposite direction to the suggested direction in the instruction manual, so be aware of that also.

Cannot flaw this case at all. I love the Fleet-Swap feature and the front of the case opens up with easy air filters removable.

I also love the looks of the case.

Awesome case!!!!

Aawesome case!!!

First of all, the case looks better in the flesh, pictures don't really do it justice.

Running a 1090t at 4.2ghz on a Crosshair IV mobo with a Ati 5870 and 4gig of C6 ram and haven't seen my cpu above 52c (100% load) with all fans set to minimum(all adjustable). Excellent airflow and cable management. Usb 3.0 offers a bit of future-proofing . The top SSD Hotswap drive works great. Just pop on in and it's ready to go. It's that simple!! The front doors are a Godsend. Getting to the filters couldn't be any easier.
Some might not like the styling (i do, the red led fans go great with my Crosshair IV mobo!! :) ).

I really can't fault this case. Basically a Antec 1200 with much newer features.

Well made, great features, ample space for any setup, quiet, and excellent airflow. Awesome!!

A solid 5*****
