Summary: The Antec Nine Hundred Two Midtower Case performed great. The fans worked as intended and kept the system cool. Everything was easy to install and fit perfectly with room to spare.
The Antec Nine Hundred Two Midtower Case has an excellent design. The included fan controllers are a nice touch to help out with flow, when needed. On the low setting, the case is virtually silent. The high setting is a bit loud but will offer ample airflow, if needed.
Pros: Two Removable HDD Docking Bays, Excellent Cooling, Tons of Room, Sturdy Design, Extra Cable Routing Holes, Fan Speed Controls, Liquid Cooling Ready
Antec Nine Hundred Two Ultimate Gaming Case Review
8 February 2010
Excerpt: It’s been a few years since I built my last computer rig. At that time, my main concern was finding an economical case that could support multiple hard drives. Simple. I looked for the cheapest case I could get and was fairly happy with the results. I was tempted to use that same approach for this new computer building project I was starting – let me go get the cheapest case and I’ll be happy.
Summary: If you're in the market for a mid-tower case, the Antec Nine Hundred Two (902) Case is one of the best on the market. It's jam packed with lots of excellent features at an affordable price. There are lots of fans and one massive 200mm fan at the top of the case, which provide excellent air circulation inside the case. There are many drive bays and modular HDD cages, which can be configured for your particular drive setup.
Summary: The Nine Hundred Two is well suited for use with a high power gaming system. Its design does not focus at all on acoustics, but rather, on maximized ventilation — the large and numerous ventilation holes, side window, and the undampened hard drive mounting scheme are testaments to this fact.
Excerpt: To quote Yogi Berra, “It’s like déjà vu all over again!” The Antec Nine Hundred Two is a refresh of Antec’s well-loved and much-imitated Nine Hundred midtower gaming chassis. And although the Nine Hundred Two does boast several refinements over its predecessor, it’s not exactly revolutionary. First we’ll talk about what the Nine Hundred Two has in common with its predecessor.
Pros: Improves on the Nine Hundred's winning formula with a few subtle refinements.
Cons: A bit too subtle. And who do we have to kill to get some screwless drive bays?
Conclusion: The way the Nine Hundred Two arrived at my doorstep was unlike any other case I've had delivered. Most are shipped in the original retail box and nothing else which usually means it's been beaten up by the time I get it. This one arrived with the retail box packaged inside of another box for shipping and it was stuffed with extra insulation so needless to say, it arrived in perfect condition.
Pros: Solid High Quality Construction, Awesome All Black Stealth Appearance, High Airflow / Cooling Performance, Low Fan Noise, External Fan Control Switches, Excellent Cable Management Options, Large Water Tube Cutouts, Washable Fan Filters
Cons: Awkward Location of Rear Fan Control Switch, Mediocre Interior Space, Fan Filter Access
Summary: Antec Nine Hundred Two is a mid-tower case targeted to the exigent user that wants a high-quality mid-tower case. Here is a summary of what we found about this product.
In summary, we think this is a terrific product for the user that is looking for an above-the-average mid-tower case. We were really impressed by its quality and options.
Summary: The Antec Nine Hundred Two is an impressive case that features excellent build quality and a number of impressive features. Naturally, if the design of the Nine Hundred Two appeals to you then that is a great start, if not you have done well to get this far through the review. Assuming the aesthetics of the Nine Hundred Two talk to you, and we are going to assume that they do, then this is certainly a case worth checking out, as it proved to be just as good inside.
Conclusion: Another solid case from Antec. The Nine Hundred v3 comes with almost all the features of its bigger brother the Twelve hundred, costs a bit less and has the new additions of the v3 range: SSD mount and USb 3.0 port. Unfortuantely both of these arn’t quite as realised as you’d hope, but they’re there nonetheless. Still, for £90 the 900 isn’t perfect. There’s no tooless installs and the panelling could do with some strengthening.
Pros: Looks good, Painted interior, Good cable management, Strong and quiet cooling, Added USB 3.0 port
Cons: No PSU air intake, Panels arn’t the strongest, V3 additions arn’t well realised
