Antec Nine Hundred Ultimate Gamer Case
21 February 2007
Summary: The Nine Hundred Series Gaming Case is a good looking mid-tower chassis. Some of the highlights of this design include the top-mounted 200mm exhaust fan, the removal hard disk cages, and the fact that all of the TriCool fans pre-installed in this system have variable speeds.
Pros: » Nine drive bays in a mid-tower case, » Smooth, painted, flat-black finish, » Case fans are very quiet on low-speed, » Top mounted 200mm exhaust fan, » Bottom mounted power supply makes the case easier to carry
Cons: » Lack of tool-less design features, » Installation of components takes longer with this case than your average generic case, » Drive cages require too much work to remove and install, » Blind hard drive installation into the drive cages is just about impossible without a magnetic-tipped screwdriver, » Expensive considering a power supply is not included
Excerpt: So, does the Nine Hundred live up to all the hype? Is it, as Antec touts, the “Ultimate Gamer Case?” If cooling and configuration options are the benchmarks we're looking at, it just may be. With four case fans included (three 120's and a massive 200mm top fan) and a distinctive look incorporating a chevron side window and mesh front, the Nine Hundred brings a lot to the table in both performance and aesthetics.
