These are the basic features of Antec GX202. In my opinion, these features are enough for a budget cabinet. I was amazed by seeing that this budget cabinet comes with 2 USB 3.0 ports. For someone, this is not a big deal but for a content creator like me, it is very helpful.
Cable management is one of the important things before choosing a case. If you have a transparent case cable management is a very important thing. Good cable management help with the airflow.
In Antec GX202 you will be able to hide your cable in the backside of the case. In this case, you can’t see any PSU shroud still you can hide your cables very easily. And have enough cutouts to manage and rout your cables.
The airflow of cabinet
Airflow is also a big factor. But managing airflow with a good look is very tough. Where Antec offers this case with very good airflow and a decent look. You will be able to see a mesh in front of GX202.
You can install 2x 120mm fans or 1x 240mm AIO. This case comes with 2x pre-installed blue LED fan in front side to intake the air and 1x 120mm pre-installed fan for exhaust.
So you wouldn’t face any thermal issues in this case. This thing makes the cabinet worth it. If you are a gamer and running a heavy GPU you can use without any thermal issue.
In Antec GX202 we got Acrylic side panel, it is not that good if the company offered a tempered glass pannel it will be much better. Acrylic panel quality is decent.
To attach this panel with the cabinet you will be able to see 6 thumb metal screws.
You can’t see any PSU shroud in this cabinet. This is also a con they can offer a shroud. You can install up to 200mm PSU in this cabinet without any issue.
It also has a detachable dust filter. This dust filter will take your power supply unit(PSU) from dust.
Cabinet build quality is also a very important section to choose a good cabinet. Antec GX202 cabinet is built with decent quality plastic and metal. They hade maintain built quality at this price point.
Is this cabinet suitable for you?
Yes, this is suitable for gamers, content creators. Why did I mention the content creators? as this cabinet still offer a CD-DVD writer install option with a decent look. Video editors still use CD/DVD writer.
If you have a decent configuration you can choose this Antec GX202 cabinet. If you wanna install an AIO you can install 240mm max AIO on Antec GX202 cabinet.
What can be improved in GX202 cabinet
Antec can add a PSU shroud in the cabinet. PSU shroud looks cool and offers a clean look. PSU Shroud also helps to hide cables. In Antec GX202 they can all so remove HDD from front to under PSU shroud.
This will make the cabinet look dope. Antec India must need to change side panel to Tempered glass. As I personally use Antec GX202 cabinet so I know that after removing the cabinet side panel a few times it got scratched.
I don’t know why Antec hasn’t given a top fan mounting option with a magnetic dust filter. It will also help to make the cabinet looks cool and also improve cabinet airflow.
If you are in the budget like 3000 – 3200Rs you must need to consider Antec GX202 cabinet. I am personally using this cabinet for the last 3 months haven’t faced any issue. And for me, it is an amazing cabinet. If Antec includes mentioned features it will make the cabinet much more powerful.
I wrote this review after using 2 months. This is my primary cabinet.
