Nice, finally some cable management for the 900 , top 200mm fan does look ugly sticking out like that. And for most of us that use antec PSU it shouldnt be a problem

I am not a big fan of the Antec 'hundred series. Very poor design in my opinion. They could have spent their time better developing a whole new case...

I think its a lot uglier than the first one, but more pratical, as its got cable management, and black on the inside. Although, i still do not get the 6 5.25" bays.. I know you can get adapters, but i'd rather have more HDD bays..

That fan up top does not fit it at all.. i liked the first one so much better.

I love my 300. It's a great case for modding. Would be nice to see a bigger 300.

I like the 190 but without the power supplies.

I like this. The cable management isn't as good as most high end cases, but at least it's better than the original 900.

I just bought my Antec 900 a couple of months ago because it's at a nice price point. I wish I had waited for this version to be released.

Since I have the 1200, maybe Ill talk momma into letting me buy this for all the watercooling parts!!!!! Wouldnt that be cool...... side by side, all lit up with blue..... all the rads, pumps, fans inside the 900.... you could load it up with completely separate loops for cpu and gpu's, memory.......


one could go nuts if they had the money!!!! which of coarse I dont :(....

Frankly a dremal would solve most of peoples problems with the cable management problems of the original 900. Lets hope antec does continue the trend of black interior a shame it wasn't done earlier on their performance 1 series say the Antec P182.
