    Antec, the global leader in high-performance computer components and accessories for the gaming, PC upgrade and Do-It-Yourself markets, has announced that it is launching the Nine Hundred Two, the latest update to Antec's line of high-performance gaming cases. The Nine Hundred Two includes new enhancements designed specifically for hardcore gamers, such as increased cooling and maximized airflow. The Nine Hundred Two is designed to provide maximum cooling for gaming systems, which are known for exuding greater amounts of heat. Cooling features of the Nine Hundred Two include a perforated front bezel for superior air intake, and a massive top-mounted 200mm Big Boy 200(tm) exhaust fan with blue LED illumination. The Nine Hundred Two is also designed with power supply mounts located at the bottom of the case to improve thermal performance, along with HDD cages that act as air ducts for additional air intake.

    Further cooling features include: Two front 120mm TriCool(tm) blue LED fans, one rear 120mm TriCool(tm) blue LED exhaust fan, an optional middle fan bracket, and a fan mount on the window side panel for graphics card cooling. Built-in, washable air filters help maintain optimal cooling, while rubber grommeted ports at the rear of the case allow gamers to mount external water cooling hardware.
    The Nine Hundred Two features a classic black finish and sleek, aggressive design. The chassis supports Mini-ITX, microATX and Standard ATX motherboards, and features nine 5.25" drive bays for greater convenience.

    The Nine Hundred Two also includes eight expansion slots to support multiple graphics cards and two front-loaded HDD cages that fit up to six hard disk drives. There is even a top tray to store your music player, digital camera or other accessories.

    "Antec is dedicated to meeting the needs of gamers with products that are able to withstand the most cutting-edge systems out there," said Scott Richards, senior vice president for Antec. "Evolved from a successful design, the Nine Hundred Two continues to provide quiet operation and maximum cooling, as well as user flexibility to create gaming powerhouses."

    The angle on the top of the case is sudden. Before, a slope started about halfway towards the front.

    It does look like a baby 1200 now. I loved the little shelf thing on the top of the 900 (perfect place to hold a matching WD Passport!) but it still looks pretty good. Thank God Antec pre-painted the inside of the case black on it too, more case manufacturers should be doing that. I think it is actually a pretty good idea to call it the Nine Hundred Two since it is so similar to the 900 with only a few minor tweaks. It rolls of the tounge easily if you say 9-0-2 as well. If I didn't already get a 1200 a few days ago, i would be all over this

    to me they should release a 1200 x2 that is stretched to the back. (not too much into cases that are taller than they are longer)

    This is case is pretty ugly. The only thing it has going for it is that Antec painted the inside black. I greatly prefer the original 900.

    sorry but IMO dis case is just fugly :shadedshu Im very dissapointed with antec n their case designs. while other companies make revolutionary cases or at least kickass designs, antec goes for this very simple n tasteless looks. Their original 900 was the best case. i was hoping their 1200 would look somewat like it but nope, they lost it. sigh.

    Hey I just orders one.The thing I liked about it is that it has the fan speed adjustment knobs on front just like the 1200 and dust filters too.None of which were on the original 900 that kept me from buying it.I would of ordered the 1200 but it was just a little to big for my setup.
