I am SOOO Ticked at my Antec Nine Hundred Case-Cable Management ANY ONE? - Page 5

You guys are killing me lol.. Decisions .. decisions.. I really like that Corsair 690t.. On these Coolermaster 690II's, do they have a lot of cable management grommets on the back like the Corsair?

Antec only gives you two holes to run the cables through and you can't even put the back panel back on with JUST the Power Supply cables ran back there.. I managed to get my wires looking good, but I forced the back panel on and I want something that is a lot better for cable management.

Please help guys.. I would greatly appreciate it. I need a reason to throw this case off of a bridge!!!

Here is a Pic of how I got my case to look inside:


that does look really bad remind me of my old P4...

I had to cut holes in mine. I could bear it no longer. My Ideal full tower case, though is a corsair 700D. It's exactly like the 800D but without the hot swap bays (useless for me) and window (once again, useless).

Yeah, that's what I hate most about my 300. Oh well, I was on a budget and it was the best case for $55.
You wanna go cheap like the 300?

Got it for an old Pentium 4 rig. It's a great little case. Really nice airflow and you can raise the HDD bay up a notch to stow extra cables. Looks sweet too. Black interior two top fans and everything. But yeah, for affordable quality cases with good cable management Cooler Master is the way to go.

Take your time and do it right. This is what I got after about 2-3 hours.
I did take my time and do it right, I just did not have cable extenders to run them behind the mobo at the time and have not got around to ordering some. >.<

post #50 of 61
I just recently upgraded my rig into to an Antec 902 from my old Antec 900. I must say, the 902 is far superior in all aspects. It fit my price range, (I usually end up spending around $100 on a case, and I swooped mine on a great Black Friday deal) and Antec support has been great to me. The wire management side panel is way deeper than the 900, and everything looks cleaner with the black interior. Little things like the air filters are great upgrades, keeping the inside significantly less dusty. All the case fans are individually controlled, and I like the overall look more than the 900.

Don't get me wrong, I would MUCH rather have the Corsair 700D, or a baller Lian Li, however I just haven't found motivation to drop that much $ on a case. The 902 is good bang for your buck.
