Antech 902 & 12" Cathodes

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Just a general question about cathode mounting.

I recently bought 2, 12" cathodes for my Antech 902 case. I should have measured first.

The only place Ive found that will accommodate a light is the pilar right behind the HDD/ drive bays. I really didn't want to use this place as the entire light is visible through the side panel. The other obvious spots would be vertical, at the rear of the case; however, I have a push/ pull H50 installed so thats out. And the bottom of the case, horizontally wont work either due to the PSU.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I think I have 12'' cathodes and I fit two tubes above the motherboard. I had to put it in a little diagonal, straighten it out up top in the case, and slip it into the empty spot above the HDD cages. This is with the Antec 900. I don't know if the 902 has the same empty spot I'm talking about.

I know what you are talking about. But I think the clearance above the cage must be a little different in the 902, the little 1" cube at the ends of the cathode wont fit -- by about a mm or 2. I suppose I could dremel it down a little. I never thought of that
Thanks!

Thanks for the idea, ended up shaving the ends until they would fit above the HD cage. Just put both cathodes across the top, one center, and one by the panel.
