The top part of the case structure can be used as a handle to carry it around.

As you could clearly see on all pictures, it has a big 250-mm fan on top to cool down your system – nicknamed “Super Big Boy” by Antec –, with an on/off switch and a three-speed controller: high (800 rpm, 158 cfm), medium (600 rpm, 118 cfm) and low (400 rpm, 79 cfm).

This case has the traditional microphone and headphones jacks on its front panel, plus two USB ports, one FireWire port and one eSATA port.

You can, if you want, remove the meshed side panels from the case. If you do that, however, you won’t be able to install extra hard disk drives (more on this later).
