    OK.... I have an ANTEC Nine Hundred. I really like the case, except for the top has the big arse 200mm fan up there.

    What I want is a case that has AT LEAST 2 120mm fan holes cut out for a radiator. I would rather have three holes but I am open to see whats out there.

    Now I know I can cut the holes myself, but I would rather not.

    So, please help me out and post up what computer cases you know of that fit the criteria.

    thanks@! :toast:

    willing to look at anything.

    If the 400 dollar case looks like it is exactly what I need.... I might go that way.

    But hell, I cheaper case wont hurt my feelings either! :)

    What about using a Swiftech radbox mount;uses single 120mm fan mount holes to fix to case and then you can use single,double or triple 120mm rad.

    Here is a pic of it on my case.

    I got it as part of my Swiftech Apex Ultra kit but it should fit any rad with 120mm fan attached

    Can I just say Oily, that that is one beautiful build and a great setup.


    I was gonna recommend this

    but it seems someone beat me to the punch. It got a perfect 10 with Maximum PC and a Kick ASS Award. That Nine-Hundred (Great case, I own one) got a 9 and a Kick ASS award.
    oily_17 says thanks.

    I own the same case as you. Right now I a running my dual 120mm RAD behind the fans in the front of the case. I want to go to a triple 120, but do not have a place to put it.

    What are you running in yours?

    I say keep your current rad where it is, and add the triple to the back with a Rad-box. Talk about uber cooling. lol

    Thanks WarEagle :toast:

    @d44ve
    I have the rad mounted so that the inlet /outlet are at the top of my case (there are pre cut holes in case for tubing ) but you can invert the rad so that the inlet/outlet tubes are at the bottom.Might fit better this way if you are using a triple fan rad.
