I think I did a pretty good job with the insulation in my attic. I had mentioned back in the fall that I had issues with ice damming last winter. This caused me to research ways to fix that problem, thus the new layer of insulation installation. We've gone through an entire winter now and I have yet to see one icicle off of my rain gutter. There used to be stalactite like ice formation right outside of my kitchen window. I have also noticed that, throughout all of the snow this winter, my roof retains the snow well and has better coverage then nearly every house in the neighborhood. It's a good sign that my attic is staying cool and not causing bad melting.



Antec has an entire gaming series of cases that fit just about everybody's needs. At the top there is the Twelve Hundred. That case features anything and everything an enthusiast gamer would need. There is tons of cooling included, endless expansion, and some cool installed features, like fan controller knobs and removable HDD cages. Somewhere in the middle of their lineup is the Six Hundred. Even that case has some nice advanced cooling features and the front loading HDD bays. The bottom of their gamer series lineup was the One Hundred. That case featured an accessory tray, basic cable management, and some gamer essentials. I use the term "was" on the One Hundred because Antec's recent release has taken over bottom of their lineup.


The Antec One has been released to meet the needs of the budget gamer or builder. The Antec One features many essentials not even found on their One Hundred. The One offers tool free 5.25" and 3.5" drive bays. PSUs are bottom mounted, but they've also included a washable filter over the PSU intake. The One features a large motherboard tray cut out for easy CPU cooler installs and swaps. There are also two 120mm fans included on the top and rear with room to expand three more 120mm fans. The front panel includes two USB 3.0 ports that connect through a front pin header, but can also be adapted as USB 2.0 ports if your motherboard doesn't support USB 3.0.
