    Question Antec 900

    I need a new case, as my current one is just way to flimsy...
    eg. 2 of the drive bays are broken and theres just a great big gaping hole there now...

    so, i was thinking about an Antec 900, what are they like?

    got one myself but its sitting in my room waiting to be built as ive just got my final bit on order as the BFG 8800 finally came into stock today @ scan

    But from having it sat ther it looks lilke a really great case, the layout is preety simple and the space inside is great.
    Its also really solid and you can instantly see its high build quality when you take it out of the box

    Its nearly all thumbscrews which is nice, and it comes with everything you could possible need.

    3* 5.25" drive bays and space for 6 HDD's

    The only bad point that i think is obvoisly the dust problem at the top, but the thing that is a little dissaponting that i didnt really think of is that the mesh front is awsome, but that doesnt really leave anywhere on the front for a case badge mabye a little pointless, but i like case badges

    ill give a better view on when i start building it if you dont go for it by then, but i would highly reccomend it from what ive seen so far.

    and the blue fans on the grill will look awsome

    im not worried about the dust! my current case atm is exactly like that.

    and yes, if you could show me some pics when you start building it, that would be great.

    thanks

    If you are worried about tidy cabling, then the front panel audio cables are too short. Otherwise all is good, imo looks great and nice and cool

    well compared to the cm stacker 830 ( i think thats the latest, hexus did reviews on both with the same setups ) the antec 900 performed better in cooling. this is the case id buy if i had the dosh. also you can fit two more 120mm fans on. one on the side and one on the back of the hdd cage, but i dont see how u can put a hdd on when its on the hdd cage. as for dust outside, a little brushing will get rid of it. but you should get some fan filters for that. must be moving a whole room of air within a hour or so
