Included fan's might not be the loudest ones but as design Antec 900 and 1200 are one of the loudest cases, whole front is practically big hole for noise to leak out and also side panel has holes.
So really quiet components and soft mounting HDs are pretty much only option for keeping it quiet.

Make it controlled airflow, you can have fans moving even thousand CFM but if that air goes through wrong place it will only make your PC sound like aircraft in take off while one tenth of that airflow might be more than enough if it goes through whole case.

Ya i was going to say, even with my top fan on high, its not that loud. The only way it does get loud is when I turn the rear fan on high.

I just left that on mine. I seriously don't think it's going to have any adverse effects on airflow in the 900.

If THAT mesh restricts airflow then every other case in the world is a sauna.

Nah. Don't worry about it. It's probably not worth the ugliness and potential finger chopping.

Apple desktops are hardly overclocked and running the same kind of hardware as I am, I'm pushing mine to it's absolute limits and need the additional cooling, if you were to put my hardware in an Apple case with stock fans, it'd no doubt overheat, be too unstable to use and basically not be feasible.

How are the other hdd's being cooled then? Common sense knows that a fan has to be perpendicular to the hdd's for them to be cooled or else only 1 hdd is cooled.
Have you actually seen the hard drive layout in the Antec Nine Hundred? Imagine that, but without the cradle and some rubber washers suspending the drives, the air flows in between all three at the bottom and they're kept very cool. Western Digital Raptor hard drives get a lot hotter than most other drives.

I has one huge 14cm fan in front, 1x 12cm exhaust, 1x "b-pillar" 12cm blowing at the northbridge and RAM but that fan is blowing with the airflow and not blowing directly onto the northbridge and RAM like side panel fans do (check out my A20 thread for a better idea). There is also a optional 12cm VGA exhaust fan that can be installed to exhaust hot air from single/dual video cards AND another optional 12cm fan that goes between the hdd and PSU to push air out faster on the bottom chamber.

This case has extremely good airflow because air is directly going into the case and out the back. Nothing on the side, top or bottom to interrupt the airflow like the Antec case. Amen
You clearly have your mind set on what good airflow is and nothing I can say will change that opinion, so I won't carry on after this, but here's a nice picture I spent five minutes drawing (not to scale), just for you, to explain what I think is good airflow, which is just my opinion and I don't expect you to agree, but it seems to do pretty well for me:



Oh and just for clarification; I'm not saying this is the ideal setup for an average machine built to be quiet, where, nine times out of ten, you won't need the excessive airflow, but for anyone who wants to overclock as far as they can on air alone, you're bound to end up with something similar.
