post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Im building a computer. as with most computers, it needs a case. im looking at a few, but the thing is this Antec 900 just seems to pop up everywhere-but with mixed reviews...some say its really expandable, looks good etc, others say wires are a mess looks crap. if you have the case, can you please let me kno what you think? and be honest lol...
thanks.

People seem to love it, and Antec is a great case company. I, however, don't personally care for it. If you like its looks, don't mind difficult wire management (a given with almost all Antec cases) and plan on using air cooling, then the Antec 900 would be great for you.

Just two hours ago i came back from J&R It's a huge tech store in NYC. They had every antec + Tt case. The two best cases there where the antec 900 and the antec P180. In the new egg pictures the 900 looks HUGE. i can tell that it's not as big as it sounds to be. The 200cm fan on top is truelly HUGE. Also while i was there i started talking to a guy who actually owns the 900 and he said it's really quiet and that the 200cm fan is actually the quietest.


Now for the P180. I liked that case a bit more. It wasn't as flashy but it had this funny look that i coulnd't help but stare at. The P180 in my opinion is layed out a bit better plus it has silicon gromets on the HDD cages. There are two cages that fit 3 HDD's each. Now each cage has this pizza thingy in it to pull out the HDD's. Picture a pizza guy pulling out a hot pizza from the oven. It's the best way i can describe it. It's very cool i must say


Put it this way. If you want flashyness go for the 900 but if you want a sleek sexi beast of a case go for the P180. Do you have any other questions?

Yeah I own the 900 and I am loving it!

The fans are very quiet (I have them set on medium).

The cabling management is pretty ugly, but as others mentioned you can mod your case to fix it. I don't care too much about it though. I would totally recommend this case.

I hear it is a really good case, but... if you have a mobo with the first slot on top as your graphics card, you might run into some problems.

Read about it here:

and here:

Just make sure you have a mobo that works with the case, I have heard majority do.
