What happens when you take an Antec SX1030 SOHO case and give it a healthy dose of steroids? You get the topic of today's review; namely the Antec Performance Plus1080 Case. Come join Mike "Darthtanion" Wright as he takes a look at this new line of enclosure from Antec. The SX1030 was a mighty fine case, so we need to find out if they were able to improve it to a point to make it worthy of spending more hard-earned money on. Try it, you just might like it!

Conclusion

 

Let's take a brief look at what we have here. We have an enclosure by a reputed company that is sturdy, roomy, has excellent built-in cooling capability and includes a kick-ass power supply. It also shows us it's ability to keep up with the future with the addition of both USB ports and Firewire support. Add in the Tool-Free entry setup, the feet that keep it from contact with the floor and the built-in filter system and we're looking at a fine piece all around.

 

The case isn't without faults, though. The lack of a filter on the side blowhole is a glaring oversight, but is easily taken in stride when you consider the good things that are present. Also, a removable motherboard tray would have been nice, but the size of the tower makes this a smaller issue than normal.

 

Bottom line... If you're getting ready to build a system that will make you the envy of your friends, then don't slight yourself by getting a generic case. With everything that the Plus1080 has to offer, it will fit right into your stylish new design and give you more functionality than most other cases on the market. Just go out and get one!
