Dont call me a fanboy just because i have a case ALOT of people use. Hey, there is a reason so many people use that case, it is a quality build that is tested and proven to cool extremly well, along with be easily modable to a consumers wants. The CM690 also has a track record of a great cooling computer with good preinstalled cable managment. The Tempest on the other hand has Copied ideas from these 2 cases and put it into a cheaper less qulity build. I dont care what you say, an Antec 900 is better build then the tempets, and yes i have both cases and have compared the two.

No. Tempest is better factory out of the box, imo they shamed the 900 hands down.

I'm sorry, but that sounds very fanboyish. At least give some reasons as to why it's better. I personally don't like it because of the motherboard tray which is cut off above the PSU. It's very hard to hide cables behind that if a third of the motherboard tray is nonexistent.

Better why? It's bigger, Supports E-ATX, easily fits big Graphics cards. They include all 6 fans in the case with the necessary dust filters. Tool-less design is handy, build quality is very nice to me and Tiger direct agrees. It's actually very handy with that cut off you just slide your wires under and up through those holes and bam your away.

Haha, yo uactually believe those reviews, it just like NewEgg, they are never going to say one of their products suck. And the A900 can fit all the graphic cards out there. And filters are not necessary. Unless you live in a barn, I hope you clean and dust the room where your computer is regularly. Yea every computer is gonna get some dust, but its just like everything else, eventually youll have to clean it. And just cause something is bigger, doenst make it better. Thats all personal prefernce. I personally like a smaller case that fits its product perfectly, and how my case is set up, everything fits. Its no to small where everything is falling over everything, and not huge where it looks like i have the smallest computer parts.

Yeah ofcourse I believe the review because I've worked with the case in person lol? Personally I think many people would rather something nice and roomy rather than a tight fit.

Not everyone does. I actually like more compact cases, which is one of the reasons why I've been interested in the Antec 300.

Speaking of the 300, cbrazeau1115, you might try taking a look at the Antec 300. It's got some nice cable management stuff built into it as well, and I really like the dust filter in the front and the hinged fan doors and hinged side panels. Plus, it goes for about half the price as both the Tempest and the 900.

Just because you like something doesnt make it true for everyone. When a full real review is posted with comparisions to other products, then I take it seriously, But that guy doesnt know what he is talking about. Let me quote him on this one... "Now the nice thing about that, is the heat the psu generates is gonna stay donw here in the bottom of the case, ah, up in the top some times the heat *stumbles for words* it just makes heating issues I suppose..." (2:29 in the movie, watch it yourself). He doenst know what he is talking about because he is scripted.

And seriously, tooless is nice, but its really not hard to screw in a few screws, and tooless you have to screw into the screwless devices. Waste of time in my opinion. Also, i prefer to drill out my holse specific to my motherboard, but thats just me. The Tempest case is ok, but when you can get an A900 for about $60 after rebates if you look around, much better deal.

Im actually picing up a A300 for my old computer and cutting a side windo into it, its i nice mini case and Antec has amazing quality. Funny, my next build is going to be in an Antec 1200 (call me a fanboy, but when the quaity is that good, i go with the best). Its going to be my next big build next summer when I have th emoney for it.

Nice. Then just go ahead and get the 900 so you can complete your collection.

I already have the 900, thats what my sig rig is in

And those holes took like 2 mins to drill and 10 to debur, comeone people, have a little DIY attitude and make your computer special to yourself.
