This is a significant improvement over the original NSK-3300, in which the power supply fan started to ramp up at a much lower load, and became easily audible under the highest loads. The NSK-3480 fan will ramp up if you have high enough a load, but there's no question that it is possible to keep a

I have built two systems with this case and my customers are both really satisfied, needless to say that I was satisfied too. This case is very user friendly. It look good and is built with quality material. I can only complain about the fact that they didn't supply a 90 degree sata cable to install the extra long blu-ray drive that was pushing hard on the PSU case.
I have this for quite a long time now and it is lasting pretty well. I don't use any other fans than the one that this case came with and even though it is set to high it doesn't collect much dust as I thought it would. This case is great for mATX boards. Highly Reommended!
It's a great small case that has room for a full sized video card, and is very quiet, the cabling system is a bit difficult to work with and get to look nice. The real issue I had with this case, was an unfinished, jagged, and razer sharp edge of metal jutting out underneath the top 5.25" drive bay, exposed when I removed the cover. The cover was in very tightly and I had to use a fair amount of force to get it to pop out, which exposed that jagged piece, which sliced my index finger to the bone... If I had had my hand turned the opposite way to push it out, I may have cut the inside tendons on the joints of several of my fingers and lost use of them... I don't know if this is a manufacturing defect or what, but I would NOT purchase this case again.
I was getting tired of mid-tower cases' height, so I decided to go with a mini-tower that was had great cooling, anti-vibration features and could take large tower coolers. The NSK3480 fit that bill as it had a 120mm exhaust (hard to come by in mini-towers) and 2x92mm intake, silicone standoff for hard drives to reduce vibration and it could take the Noctua NH-U12P, a fairly tall and large cooler. Furthermore, what attracted me to the case is its two chamber design. The main components are separated from the power supply and, therefore, the power supply may run its fan at lower speed as cool air is drawn directly from the outside. This also allows for better air circulation in the main components chamber. Nevertheless, such a design does pose a problem if you have a loud power supply since noise would leak out of the case much easier than before because of the top vents. One should therefore pick a quiet power supply. In all, this is a great computer case for mATX motherboards: it has good cooling and can take large coolers and long video cards without any complaint.

I used this in a build for a friend. I just wanted a no nonsense matx case with a quality PS included for a light duty PC. I've always liked Antec cases; in my experience they are well thought out, simple, practical and attractive. This case was no exception, although the nature of a matx case means working conditions are cramped.
Ce boitier est vraiment une petit merveille. I lest relativement spacieux et d'une trè bonne qualité de fabrication. La ventillation est très bien avec desfentes de refroissement sur le dessus du boitier dédiées pour le bloc d'alimentation, un ventilateur 120mm à 3 vitesses à l'arriere pour évacuer l'air du boitier, et deux espace libre à l'avant pour installer des ventilateurs silencieux de 92mm. Aussi ce botier à l'espace pour mettre une carte graphique pleine grandeur du genre 8800GT. Les seules petites réserves que j'ai pour ce boitier c'est que l'espace pour mettre un deuxième disque dur en haut du boitier à la place du deuxième graveur est en fait requis pour mettre les câbles exédentaire du bloc d'alimentation. Aussi le bloc d'ailementation est limité pour des utilisation moyenne gamme (j'ai un core 2 duo E6400 et une 8600GTS, 4 GB de mémoire, 1 HD et 1 graveur DVD).
