Antec 900 vs HAF 922 - Page 2

post #11 of 21
I have an Antec 900. Unless you're using a modular power supply, plan to cut a hole in the case, or are a wizard, I suggest you don't get it. Trying to fit all my cables in a neat way is an exercise in futility.

Antecs don't have great airflow. You can't have great airflow if you have no cable management and no room. The air doesn't flow anywhere with all the cables in the way. You need empty space where the air can pass through.

Both are older cases...for some reason the antec 900 is the most sold on newegg. No idea why. I would recommend the 922, cooler master makes a good product. Explore other options though, there are better cases out there for the money.

They do if you know what you're doing with the cable management.

The only Antec cases I like are the 300s and P180/P183/P193...well I guess you can say that I prefer their conservative looking cases . I'd also go with HAF 922.

i used to own a 900, then switched to 922. the 922 has way better features and indeed more airflow. the back side paneling allows better cable management. and front loading hd bays make it a dream to work with over the 900.
