I have been in search of a new case for many months. When looking for my
previous case, I went for aesthetics over function and purchased one of the
translucent cases. While, at the time, it was really cool looking, working
inside of it was a pain. Not only was it hard to maneuver my hands inside the
case, the power supply was over the processor, and I cut my hands a lot on it.
Once my tax return came in, it was time to get that new case, and thank Uncle
Sam for it. So I looked across the Internet for the perfect case. Finally, a
friend of mine recommended the Antec SX840 to me. After looking at it and
thinking to myself that it would be a good review case, I went down to BudgetPC
in Newburgh, Indiana and ordered it.
I went into BudgetPC to pick up the case on Saturday afternoon. I walked in
and saw it sitting there in its box all by its lonesome, and knew I had to get
it home quickly. The case came packaged in a thick Antec cardboard box and was
protected by a Styrofoam mold. I did not notice any scratches or dents in the
case from its trip, so the packing was sufficient for me. When I got home, I
took the case out of its box and realized that it is quite heavy compared to my
old translucent one. The case is made of high quality metal that it would be
quite hard to destroy. The front of the case is made of plastic, and I noticed
that the faceplate to the drive bays comes off and that drives are mounted using
brackets. The brackets are screwed to the sides of the drives, and then you
slide the drives in.
