Further details on the case were originally released here.

I'm so glad they ditched the tacky Antec holes on the side panel. Too bad they didn't rotate the 3.5" bays like the SLK3700.

I went to Antec's website but this model is not listed.

Does anyone know if the hard drive bays are riveted to the side panel like the original Sonata?

Is there still a filter behind the front bezel?

Would have been better if it had 4 x 5.25" bays--especially if it still has the hdd bays riveted to the side panel.

Looks like better airflow through the lower front, but I wonder how that will affect noise?

Seems like I was looking at the wrong photo. I don't think the pictures show the front with how many bays or how the lower front looks with door closed.

The duct connects to the back of the case, you can see its grill in some of the pics. The other end is over the cpu .
