Well, I ditched my TT Tsunami Dream because of poor airflow. I got a killer deal on an Antec Nine hundred. I will post a review on the case soon. My first impression was bad because of the complete lack of ways to do ANY cable management. SO I decided to cut my new case
.Plus I needed a break from my other build. Here is the work log. Any comments would be appriciated!

Thanks,
James

the Tt wasn't that bad !
but yeah it doesn't fit compared to a Antec 900 or the Tt Armor


nice paint job
wire managment costs allot of your time but imo is really worth it. and i think everycase got plenty space to hide them. mostly the right side of the 5.25" drive mounting is good for 80 % of the wires


looking forward to a next update

Holes were cut to be in location for most of my connections. The bottom hole is where all the cables will go in. The middle hole will be for my ATX power connector and PCI-E power...may try to make the SATA cables go there as well. The top hole is for power and SATA to my DVD-RW. If you look at the previous pictures before i painted it you can get an idea of where most of the connections on the mobo are. Only downside is that the front panel cables are rather short

The Armor is overpriced, and the Antec Nine Hundred isnt? :***:

Don't make me beat you to death with it. :swearing:

A rather large amount of people on here have an Armor, probably atleast 20%+. So obviouslym Tt are doing SOMETHING right.

TBH i think the Antec case is butt ugly. Nice spray job though, and nice colour. But the case is just ugly imo.

Antec Nine Hundred 129.99
Thermaltake Armor w/ 25cm fan 169.99

Remember the Armor is larger......BUT the Nine Hundred is Sexier...AND it doesnt have squeaky doors!

On newegg...
The Tt armor is 154$ and it has a mail in rebate for 25$.
The Antec 900 is 129.99 with an instant rebate....
imo the 900 is better because it comes with more fans and the airflow looks to be better.

i admit cable management is a pain, but if you take your time, you'll do a good job.

i wish i had a camera to show you mine

Overpriced. I can find the Antec Nine Hundred for about $80. I bought mine for less than $100 3 months ago


Now...I have the same case myself. I have to say, the cable management isn't great. However, I haven't done any case modding. I'll see how this turns out and maybe I'll do something. It isn't a problem for me since the cables aren't blocking the intake fans.
