Today I will be reviewing the Antec GX505 brought to us by Antec. This case is meant to attract the budget friendly market. The GX505 has a nice design and has your accessible front drive bays. The front drive bays are rapidly becoming obsolete. I still have the need for a Blue-Ray drive and I am always a little disappointed when a case doe not offer a slot for one. Well if that is concern the GX505 has three!
The cooling capabilities are top notch. There are options for plenty of intake and exhaust options to choose from. The small window is always a nice touch. I have spent a lot of money on my hardware and I would like to be able to show off my fancy hardware. There is nothing super spectacular about the GX505 but as far as being a fully serviceable case with a few flowing designs aspects the GX505 is definitely a contender in the affordable market with a price around 60 bucks!
The spacious interior of the GX505 Window features many benefits, such as cable routing management, ample clearance for extra long graphics cards up to 15″ (380 mm) in length, support for water cooling, SSD support, and USB 3.0 ports. Tool-less drive make installation a snap, while washable pre-installed 120mm fans, fan control switch, and a windowed side panel for showing off your build, the GX505 Window has all the essential features of a serious gaming chassis at an unbeatable price.
