Will Antec Case Fans Sufficiently Cool My Computer Parts? - Page 3

Although u may have different opinion on this case, it's more pricey than CM advance 2 because it has a side window on the case as yours do not. of course this is more along the line of aesthetic but usually cases with side windows tend to be more pricier than case that do not. (it like same concept as paying a little more for a case that's painted inside and out rather than just the outside)

I did get mine for 100 dollars when it was on sale, but if you compare cases WITH side window, antec 902 is not priced too high above any DECENT cases with a side window.
Side windows are silly at that price. I can get a side window panel for my case for somthing like 20 bucks. Antec 900 lacks in fan placement, your stuck using top eshaust/rear exhaust, this turns the case into a bagless vaccume. With my CM690(and other case's) you can opt to set up fans for Positive Pressure. I havent cleaned my PC of dust in 5-6mo, and you wouldnt know it by looking at it. also the CM690II is painted inside and out...Also the texture of the paint on the antec makes it hard to keep dust off of it, and the little triangels collect all kinds of stuff. Lastly I HATED the million thumb screws used to keep the bays in place. Had to practicly take the whole case apart to clean the dust filters on the front.

Once again "Side windows are silly at that price. I can get a side window panel for my case for somthing like 20 bucks" ur opinion only.

personally im willing to pay the extra 20 bucks to save the work of cutting, measuring, sanding, painting, to mod the side panel for a window. In addition I like to look at my expensive components with a case that actually has a window on it instead of staring at dead black BORING side panel.

"also the CM690II is painted inside and out" whats the point? you can't even look inside. plus so is the antec 902

You do realize 902 and 900 is 2 different case, and it seems like you have no idea what ur talking about. 902 provides a window and also has an another 120mm fan mount on the side with the included dust filter. This in fact does create positive air pressure in the case with 3 intakes and 2 exhaust. perhaps you should get ur fact straight before you start making comments.

the o/p is asking for 902 v3 not the 900 the one you owned which is a ****ter version. 902 is exact same clone to antec 1200 with 1 less intake and rear fan.
post #23 of 39
I have built PCs with 900,902, AND the 903. Also have used the LAN boy and the 1200. they are all over priced for what you get. Also, my 20 dollor side window has no sanding or cutting. its made by CM for my case, not a mod. This is my opinion and your not going to change it by insulting me. Good day Sir.

As others have said, unless you plan on doing rendering/encoding, save yourself $100 and get a i5-2500k. It performs identically to the 2600k in gaming and everything else.

Also, if you plan on SLI/crossfiring in the future, you may want to pick up a 750 watt PSU (same brand).

As for the 902, I am currently using one, and I'd recommend you get a different case. The cable management is horrible and the fans create negative pressure. While it is somewhat cool, for $130 you should be getting a much better case. Here's a good website which compares a bunch of different cases : http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/201...orcer-review/2

Honestly, if you like the look of the antec, i'd spend an extra $25(only $10 with MIR) and get yourself the antec df-85. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811129087
top performance cooling with MUCH more room and the fan filters are easily washable without having to take off both side panels and unscrew every cage (an absolutel nightmare/annoyance with the 902).

That sir would be an epic build if i dont say so myself! how ever see the below comment about the CPU. i5 2500k is a total BEAST! If I where building I would scrap the i7 2600, and use the saved money to go with a better SSD. I only say that becouse my first experiance with SSD was with a OCZ drive and I kicked myself for it. look at the crucial or what ever it is...c-300 I think it is.

I have looked at many cases from $80-$140. However, I cannot find a case that I visually like more than the Antec Nine Hundred Two.

I think the Cooler Masters I have seen look too plastic-ey, and I think the Antec DF-85 looks obnoxious.


I am not sure what case to get


I want a case that:
- quietly, effectively cools my computer parts
- is made of durable materials
- does not look like it is made of cheap plastic
- looks fairly simple and sleek


EDIT:

Am I expecting to find unrealistically good cases for ~$80-$140?

Can anyone suggest cases they know cool at least as well as the Antec Nine Hundred Two, have better cable management, and create positive air pressure? I could easily judge cases solely by their exterior and interior appearances if I can trust they are built well and have desirable features.

Seriously. Antec 902 is simply too overpriced for its features. Lian li's make awesome cases. Ask anyone and they will say the same.

Not sure why... but I love the Rosewill Thor.

You seriously need to move to US. Damn Newegg.ca is expensive.

EDIT : http://www.canadacomputers.com/produ...item_id=026529

K62B for $99. Cheapest I could find on canada.

I am starting to like the Lian Li PC-K62 after hearing so many great recommendations


To help me accurately decide which case I would like to have, could someone tell me:

1. Can I comfortably fit the parts I want to purchase in the Lian Li PC-K62?

2. Does the Lian Li PC-K62 cool parts at least as well as the Antec Nine Hundred Two?

3. How quietly do the Lian Li PC-K62 fans operate?



If I purchase the Lian Li PC-K62, should I buy a fan controller as someone had suggested?

Are fan controllers easy to install?


If I purchase the Lian Li PC-K62, should I tool-less-y install parts or screw in parts?
