    My case has a removeable air filter, but I can't figure out how to take it out to clean it. There isn't nothing in the directions about how to do so, it just tells you that there is one, ideas?

    If its in the front, it might be a long process. For my case (similar front grill, basically knock off antec), I have to pull off both sides of the case, and then push the entire front of the case off. There's like 6 pieces of plastic that hold it on.

    I hope it's not that involved, the manual makes it sound like a very easy process, thanks though.

    No, it's really easy. There is a slot on the bottom of your case towards the front. Inside the slot are two plastic tongs you squeeze together and pull towards you. TaDa!

    Yep. I have the same case. The hardest part is getting your fingers in there enough to get a good grip on it. But there's definitely no dissassembly required.

    Damn, that sounds a lot better than my case. Of course it doesn't have a filter in the front, so it doesn't matter.

    I love my big-ass antec. I'd take it over most aluminum cases any day just because it's so well-built.

    And the filter on the Antecs used to require the removal of the face, I think (my cousin has an older one), but now you just need to pull it out from the bottom. :)
