Antec Two HundredJun 29th, 2010 | By Chris
When placing the motherboard inside, the standard bronze stand-offs were already pre-placed for me. All necessary mounting screws were provided.
Mounting the hard drive in place was also very basic. Slide it in one of the six bays, and set it into place with four screws.
To mount a 5.25″ drive, you’ll need to pull off the front plastic bezel. To do that, simply pull out three clips, and the front bezel pops off. Then, twist off one of the metal covers, slide the drive in, and secure it with four screws on each side. Replace the front cover, and things are looking flush.
Here we have everything installed. As previously mentioned, the power supply sits upside-down, so I’ll be docking the Two Hundred a few points for that. On top of that, the chassis has no options in the “cable management” category, so it’s difficult to get that “clean case” look. The option provided by Antec is to route the cables behind the motherboard tray. Other than that, everything else seems to fit comfortably here.
All installation features are as you would expect from a budget case, but this doesn’t mean it will perform poorly. Let’s go check it out.
