Excerpt: Heat as you all know is one of the main enemies of the PC and its many components. Just visit any PC Hardware-related site out there today and you will find whole sections devoted to heatsinks, coolers, etc., the sole goal of which is to cool down the ever growing number of heat producing components in a typical PC.
Summary: If you're in the market for a new chassis, I would strongly recommend checking out the Antec Nine Hundred Case. It has most of the ingredients you should look for when purchasing a case. 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.
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. You can see the fan connectors and front panel connectors along with a small white box of accessories in the middle. As you can see, the molex connectors for each fan in this case are made with a new pass-through design to save cord clutter.
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.
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: 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.
Summary: 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
