Conclusion: Now that we have looked at the outside of the case and features that it brings to the table. Lets take a look inside with the components in place. Here is a side shot of the case with the cover off.
Pros: Plenty of airflow, Lots of room, Slick design, Front panel ports accessible
Cons: Speed control switches are impossible to use unless side door is removed, Drive cage thumbscrews will not unscrew easily at first without a screwdriver, The 120mm fan mounted at back of drive cage is practically unusable unless your motherboard has a flat spot in that area.
Conclusion: As I mentioned I really couldn't find anything wrong with the Antec Nine Hundred Gaming Case, maybe a few improvements could be made, but as is it is a very well made and well designed case. What more can I say really? I like the case so much my main system is now in it and I am very happy that way.
Summary: After spending more than a month with this Nine Hundred Gamers case we stress tested it with different system to find its strong and weak spot, read on to see if this new Antec case is worth your money.
Conclusion: Summing it up, the build quality was good, and overall the features were what we expected for the RRP of around £80 including VAT. When you consider that the 900 ships from Antec with four fans pre-fitted and a further two potential 120mm fans, the noise level would begin to worry us.
Conclusion: Aside from the inconvenience of installing drives, I thought the Nine Hundred was an outstanding chassis. In fact I might go so far as to say it's the most intelligently engineered and thoughtfully outfitted chassis I have yet seen. If I gave out silly editorial product awards, this would get one.
Conclusion: The Antec Nine Hundred enclosure is a bit cramped for a gaming enclosure, which are increasingly required to house some of the biggest hardware around, but is otherwise a functional, transportable case.
Pros: 200mm "Big Boy" exhaust fan, front exiting drive cages, stylish and light
Cons: Cramped for a gaming case, fiddly hard drive bay screws
