Antec SX1240 Tower Case Review

TweakTown Rating: 9.5%Manufacturer: Antec



The Antec SX1240 case is a monster, plain and simple. It has room for nearly anything imaginable, and still is able to maintain a look that sets it apart from the crowd. The cooling options available are plentiful, but still leaves room for those with some imagination and power tools to have some fun.


The power supply included with this case is also an awesome piece in it's own right. At 400 watts, it will be able to handle anything you dare to throw at it, and is also one that is consistently on the AMD recommended list. With the addition of a cable that allows you to monitor the fan speeds, it makes it a perfect match for the Power User.


It's not a perfect case, though, since it fails to provide a removable motherboard tray, but the advantages outweigh the disadvantages by a hefty margin. Though not in the bargain category, it can be found online for prices in the US$150 range (including PSU). This price certainly makes it an appealing prospect for those looking to build a new system.


Bottom line... If you're in the market for a tower case that has both standard features and the ability to be customized in the future, then do yourself a favor and get one of these. It's huge, has awesome cooling features built right in, and has a power supply that is more than adequate for even the hardcore among us.
