The name Antec has become synonymous with great cases. Their reputation in the gaming and enthusiast community has been earned by providing a quality product with good cooling and lots of space. The Plus1080 case boasts all of these features. The power supply is Antecís TruePower 430 watt offering. It has 2 ball bearing fans on the bottom and rear for good cooling and reliability. The power supply controls the speed of the case fans through temperature monitoring and has a separate power lead for the fans. It also features 4 external 5.25" drive bays, 2 external 3.5" drive bays, and 4 internal 3.5" drive bays. All of the 3.5" bays are actually cages that have quick release levers for easy removal and installation. The case comes with 3 80mm cooling fans with options for 2 more. The placement of the fans is nice. There are 2 at the rear of the case near the processor and the video card, and 1 in the easy to open side panel that blows directly on the video card. The 2 optional mounts are located at the front of the case. One is actually integrated into the lower hard drive cage and the other is at the very bottom. All mounts, except that in the side, utilize snap in fan mounts for easy insertion and removal. Located just behind the front bezel is a washable air filter. This case also features 2 USB ports and 1 IEEE 1394 (Firewire) port located behind a flip-up panel on the front of the case. The Plus1080 comes with a large assortment of standoffs, screws, and drive slides for each of the 4 5.25" bays. Enough with the features, which you can get on the Antec website. Letís see how this thing goes together and how well it does.
I bought this case to have more room and better cooling than my old Inwin S508 case. The system consisted of the following: AMD Athlon 1.4 Ghz T-Bird, Epox 8K7A+ motherboard, 2x 256 MB Crucial PC2100, 1 WD 40 GB 7200 RPM hard drive mounted in a CRU Dataport V Plus removable hard drive system, 2 WD 80 GB 7200 RPM hard drives set up in RAID 0, a Pioneer 106S DVD player, Sony CD/RW, Gainward GeForce 3 Ti200 w/ Tt Crystal Orb, Creative Audigy Platinum EX, and 3Com NIC.
