Well just saw the deal on newegg for the 902. $64.99 after MIR http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...058-_-09202010. I was deciding between a storm scout and pc-k62 but this just popped up and was wondering if it still an "innovative" case. Is this case worth $65 or i should go pick up a storm scout at microcenter for $71.99 http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0308296. The rebate for the 902 is only for today and i love saving money. Would any of theses cases be a good upgrade from this crappy case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...igma%20phantom. The 2 80mm fans are driving me nuts

Yes it's still one of the top airflow midsize towers available.

And at that price point, that makes the deal a steal.

It's still good but the air filter is a lot of work to remove to clean. I leaves mines full of dust and temps still good. Other cases like the CM Storm Sniper, you just pop it off and remove filter instead of removing all the thumbscrews. Yes all 20 of them, if you screw everything in like me.

Its very good air cooling case. The only problem is dust. I had A900 and i was very pleased with its performance.

Other way around. The Storm Scout can have similar airflow but the carrying handle on top is a nice touch and it has a CPU retention plate access hole and PSU ventilation.

I had an Antec 900 for my first ever pc build. I love that case, it's exactly like the 902 just some minor changes here and there. I highly recommend the case, it has the best airflow and looks really nice, the build quality is great as well. You really can't go wrong with the 902 or the CM Scout but since the 902 is cheaper I would get that for sure.

IMO the Storm Scout is a piece of trash, just as anything from Coolermaster.

The Antec 902 > Storm Scout.

I already know you are an anti-antec dude and in this case you're wrong too.

lol, I dont like Coolermaster very much too when it comes to Cases.

Anyway, It's still a very good Air case, if you want to Watercool, I'd try something different. If you're on Air - Go for it, I LOVE mine and it's perfect for my needs

I'm wrong for having an opinion? Hmm what kind of PSU do I have? Antec! Oh well, at least you're not so butthurt this time by my insults to your precious Antec cases.
