$450 Ksl PC

Description

Bought this all for $450. Ended up totally rebuilding it: redid all cable management, swapped out fans, and gave it a clean up. Absolutely HATED the Antec 300. For the price I don't see why anybody buys them. They have NO cable management at all. The only thing I liked on it was how the front fans mounted. Overall it played games pretty. Ended up keeping the monitor, keyboard, and mouse then traded the PC for an i5-2500k, sabertooth z77, H55, 2tb HDD, NZXT Phantom, and a cx600m. Yes I know I got a heck of a trade. The guy was trying to sell the whole thing plus a 570 for $600 so I traded him straight across minus his video card (yes I'm a salesman by trade lol).

That's probably the cleanest I have see an Antec Three Hundred look inside without crazy mods. I could never get mine to looks that nice even when I painted it black inside.

It literally took me hours to get the cables to even look semi clean. Not a fan of cases that come with no cable management.

Ksl- It's kind of like craigslist but exclusive to my area. Puts craigslist to shame around here.

For $25 that's a steal. I was just so used to my other keyboard that I couldn't really get into this keyboard and it was too long for my main desk.

How is the antec 300 working out

 
 
MrBeastshaw [Submitter] [14 Builds] 1 point 1 month ago

I honestly hated it. No cable management options made for a piss pore building experience. Definitely better cases at that price point.

Also how is the power supply?

 
 
MrBeastshaw [Submitter] [14 Builds] 1 point 1 month ago

Would not recommend. Terrible power supply. In that price range look at the CX430 or EVGA 500W Bronze.
