Antec Nineteen Hundred Stands Tall...Really Tall

At Antec's Computex booth, one exhibit literally stuck its head out, the new Nineteen Hundred super-tower chassis. This two foot-long ATX full-tower features nine expansion slot bays, and supports HPTX, EATX, and conventional ATX motherboard form-factors. It features well-partitioned motherboard, drive, power, and peripheral areas, and is made of 0.8 mm-thick steel. The case offers a total of 17 drive bays, including three 5.25-inch, fourteen 2.5-inch or 12 3.5-inch (configurable). It features two PSU bays, letting you add redundant or supplementary PSUs. Its cooling system includes three 120 mm front intakes, two 120 mm top exhaust that can be used to latch a 240 x 120 radiator, two 120 mm fans that circulate the air within the case, and a rear 120 mm exhaust. The case below is pictured with lime green highlights, we suspect more highlight color options could be in the works.

No, but it still answers your question. Overclockers do tend to use multiple PSUs to power rigs.
You have to, at the high-end. There is just no other option.

Well then they just made a case that appeals 0,01% of the market at this point. :)
Dual Redundant PSUs is nothing new in the industry. What is new is a quad of high-en, overclocked and watercooled VGAs, that requires ~400W per card. With four cards, that's 1600 W. My "ideal system" has three PSUs, two for VGAs, one for the rest of the system.

Add in those that do GPU compute and bitcoin, have just vastly increased that market. People who know NOTHING about PCs at all, do bitcoin mining. Wit ha lack of specially-designed mining ASICs available on the market, there's actually a larger market for this sort of case than you'd imagine...or Corsair wouldn't have the 900D, either. Every case maker has big huge multi-GPU cases for a reason...because there is a market for them.

Some professional overclockers use anywhere between four to six 1500W PSUs.
But do they bother with tower cases? :D

Again with that stupid rear fan controller.
All it is a P280/1100 on a stand.
WINNER! WINNER! WINNER!

I have an Antec 1100 and it IS the same case with a PSU and HDD stand underneath.

Those are some cool looking fans. :toast:

On topic, the largest case I've ever had was a Cooler Master Storm Stryker. I bought it cheap and only had it for about 2 days then sold it to a friend along with an ASRock Extreme 6. It was just really too big for my liking. I only plan on building m-ATX and mini-ITX rigs. This case is not for me but I do see some people buying it. Those who do 4-way SLI or CFX and those who need a lot of HDDs.

Heh. Time to just go water cooling if you're producing that much heat. It's going to be more efficient than Peltier cooling and a ton of high-watt fans. Unless this is some special build where some restriction would prevent water cooling, or you're just doing to do it, for fun. If that's the case, then more power to you! lol
They are getting used for watercooling

Ahh. OK. Cool.

Why not go with much less power hungry fans? Just curious? Personal preference?

Yes, but what on Earth needs 9000W inside a PC build!? As I take it, extreme overclocking doesn't increase power usage all that much (exponentially at least).


Paint it something other than green and maybe I'm game.
You never know when you'll need over nine thousand Watts, when chasing records. One 1500W PSU dedicated to a graphics card each, rest for the system.

That's exactly what it is, down to the dual SSD bays... It's uglier though, and would not fit under any desk I've ever owned.

I've still yet to discover what a 'professional overclocker' is.

This extreme overclocking via Dice or LN2. has nothing to do with a case.......:nutkick:

Here's proof that a 3960x @ 5Ghz will pull at least 400w: http://www.hardocp.com/article/2011/11/14/intel_core_i73960x_sandy_bridge_e_processor_review/8#.Ua7d7-vwn6Q
Also if you look at W1zzes test the HD 7970 Ghz ed un overclocked has a maximum power pull of 273w from the PCI-e pegs not the slot so overclocked and water cooled I could see them hit 350-400w maximum pull.
A 3770K at 5GHz with 3 x 7970's at 1200/1600 pulls over 1000 watts, almost 1100 watts.
