I got this sharp new Antec case

I was lucky enough to get this Antec server case as NE refurb. There's not a single thing wrong with it. The previous buyer must have either not liked it, or thought it was too big? He hadn't even removed the cdrom or floppy metal slot fills.

Anyway, I am in love with it and have scrapped my plans to put a so-so mobo and cpu in it. I've decided it must house my main pc hardware.
So.. I'm taking my main offline for awhile. Be back later.

Were those the server model, made out of thicker steel than the standard ones?

Nice case LP.

My wife has the same case and I love it. Great to work with. And sturdy, very strudy. You could use it as a step stool in a pinch.
