How to remove the top of the Antec 900?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Is it easy?
If you have any pictures, that'd be great!


The reason I'm asking is, I may be upgrading my CPU to a Q6600, and I don't want to have to take the MOBO out to fit the Tuniq Tower, so if I can remove the top and put it back on, it'd help a lot in being able to screw it on, Thanks!

It's not really hard you just have to be careful. There are 2 screws under the top and small plastic tabs you need to bend back to release the top. Most of the tabs are easy to see and release but the two front ones are kind of hidden. Just be patient and take you time. I'll get pics later on if you still need them.

Yes, you can take the Top section off
(BUT YOU MAY BREAK A CLIP!)

To remove the top panel:
2 screws on the underside of top need to be removed to realease the 200mm fan.
Push the rear and side clips to the outside to release.
The front clips are 1.25” to 1.5” from the front panel.
You need to push forward from the rear.
(You can’t actually see them)
Take a long flat blade screwdriver and press the tabs gently towards the front.
(This is where I broke one of the clips)
Superglue to repair the tabs or double sided tape to secure it if necessary.

You guys are making it more complicated then it is. Poke your head in and look directly up. There's one(or two) screws attached to a loop. Unscrew that screw.

Open the case as much you can. Take the doors out.
Onscrew the bays. Take out the front grills.
With the front grills and fan out the front frame should pop out really easy. Just it out and wiggle it a bit.
Now all that's left is the top which has 6 clips that snap into the metal frame. Use your fingers to push in the back most clips from the inside. With the back sticking up a little, simply pull it out and the rest of the clips should just snap off.

Do you have to snap the clips to get it off?
