My System Specs

Default My Antec 900

Well, the exterior looks like any other Antec 900. So, I didn't put up any pics of the exterior.

The inside is what I really like. The one I got didn't have ANY wire-routing holes, like natta, nil, zip.

Yet, I think I did a pretty good job with the wire-routing. I used LOTS of tie-downs, and also used the middle-fan to hide the wires.

Check it out. Hope this helps anybody else who's having trouble with the case and wires.

Note, however, I only have one HDD. I also have a modular PSU.

Oh yeah, that stray 4-pin power connector will disappear soon. Muuuwahahahaha.

Dustin1706 - thanks!

MobiusD - yeah, this is one of my fav heatsinks. It wouldn't fit in my other CoolerMaster 310 case. So I purposely got this Antec 900 case to house it, LoL.

^^^ LoL, what you see there, is all there is. No hiding of extra cables.

I used lots and lots and LOTS of tie-downs to organize the wires and put it all together. Then, I placed the entire batch between the middle-fan and side-panel. Having a modular PSU really helped, but the trick is to use those tie-downs and get everything out of the way of airflow.

I see, my Antec 300 is a rat's nest :(

^^^ Ouch. That's sad.

Go buy some tie-downs! I picked-up a bag of 80, for $1 @ the dollar store. They make a huge difference, plus you can use them to tie the wires onto drive-cages and other places.
