I will be modding that side panel with tempered (or normal glass) soon. I don't need that side intake to be honest.

Also, I ordered AcoustiPack Lite sound dampening kit, I will try to quiet it down aswell. Pics will follow of course :D

ill be modding mine but for minor changes, will swap / take out 5,25" drive cages and some slots it has for drives, gotta think about the replacemen for drive cages, i have 2 HDD & 1 SSD, want to add them to the wall, inside the case, and maybe add moar space for maybe another 1200mm dont know where :laugh:

@mcborge - Yeah, these cases were meant for air cooling, and they do a damn good job at it. The case temperatures are superior to the newer, water-cooling friendly cases.

However, having the 1200, have a look at this link:

http://archive.williamwendland.com/index012011.shtml

I can fit a triple 120 in the front by taking the HDD cages out. Same goes for the 900 and a dual rad.

http://www.codisha.com/blog/build-log/antec-300-mod/

Or something like this, if you own a 300, or other similar cases.


@peche - Same here, love the industrial looks. Also, case temps have gone down since it blows all the heat outside and I (at least I think i do) have the case at positive pressure, heat doesn't come back.
Thanks for the links, my trouble was i had too many hard drives in my 902 at the time so i had little space in the front for a radiator, It's still one of my favourite cases though and i may still use it some day as a nas box.

Painted the skeleton of the Tt Core V21. I'm never using cheap spray paint ever again, it's horrid and it never truly dries thus is prone to scratches even from touch of a PSU cable.

Too bad the case doesn't have any proper cable management, the cables are exposed completely, it's worse that I have a non-modular PSU. So it can't be helped, rubber bands and cable ties only help so much. Too bad there isn't a successor to this case, it's relatively cheap for the features it provides (Fractal's cases are overpriced here). and building in it is pretty easy until you get to the freakazoid PSU mounting.

I didn't stick the LED strip permanently just because I might have to grind off the paint and re-do it again at some point. God I wish I didn't pick the cheapest cans, even though I payed 12 euros for 4 of them and was only able to paint one part. I still managed to make the paint run off at a few corners but the imperfections are covered by the panels so it's all good.

That's a GTX 460 btw. I went back to my first proper mid-range GPU just to remember what it was like for me back in 2011. I didn't get the 560 back in the day because it was literally double the price in UK and featured little to no performance improvement over the 460. Remember when mid-range GPU's didn't cost over 200? I 'member.

I had the single-fan Gainward model, it could OC but heat was a problem. This bad dude is factory OC'ed to 715MHz from 675MHz and it can go even higher. A shame that Pascal and future GPU's are voltage limited.

At some point I'm probably going to try out an AIO for the first time in ever. I was always holding off because I am afraid of the pump outright dying after warranty, or worse... a coolant leak. The FUD is a good PSA not to go AIO route. But I don't like a huge ass 150W TDP air cooler hanging off the socket. Doesn't look good IMO.

HTPC rocking and rolling, needs a new PSU and a case first. But no problems with this piece of crap. :laugh:

edit: I'll put these in spoilers from now on :)

Well, let's post my gaming rig also :toast:


And yeah, the stock cooler is only a temporary solution, I ran out of cash after all that hardware I bought :D

So, Acoustic foam arrived today, 4 or so days from the UK to my door!

1.jpg

Then I went straight to work

First off, I put some foam underneath the PSU

2.jpg


Then I put some on the side of the PSU, like this:

3.jpg


So that bit now looks like this:

4.jpg


Afterwards, I decided to do something about those intake fans. First off I took measurements from this area:

5.jpg



And the measured foam is applied to the side panel, like this:

6.jpg


Then, I wanted to wrap each intake fine individually, since the noise comes from each fan, however there is no space around them to do so:

7.jpg
]

Then, I went and cleaned each HDD cage and fan separately. I must note here that the fan adapters have little screw holes in them, it is very easy to fit them without the HDD cage - Allowing for a triple 120 push-pull setup very easily! I will however leave that for a future build/upgrade.

I decided to put some foam on the HDD cages instead, but I didn't because of two reasons:

1) They won't fit (foam is 4mm thick).
2) I might be taking them out in the future so no need.

8.jpg


Since the cage would not slide in place, I did this instead:

9.jpg


Then I proceeded to the top part of the case:

10.jpg


I will proceed in another post, can't upload more images.

Now we move to the rear of the case.

First off, something with the HDD/Fan cages:

11.jpg



Then, I did some VERY (I mean VERY) scientific measurements on foam placement for the back panel

12.jpg


And the foam in place:

13.jpg


That is most of the job done. Now I still had foam left so:

14.jpg


Side Panel improved a little bit, no pictures yet cos I haven't finished it.

How it looks with the back panel in place:


15.jpg


I still have a 12x12cm piece left, I will do something with it tomorrow.


The foam can be easily cut with a safety blade. The adhesive on it is incredibly strong! But its easy to use, even if you screw the placement, with careful hands you can peel the foam off and re-apply it again.

Noise? It will not make any specific sound go away! However, it feels like someone took the main Volume switch and turned it down to 60%.

I am happy and the case looks smart :D

Lookin' good @FilipM ! :toast:

Tho I'd get some better fans, I had an Antec 900 several years ago and those stock Tri-Cool fans were pretty meh.

The foam I bought is 4mm thick. They also make a 7mm thick and 12mm thick versions + 3.5" drive bay inserts. The back panel took two people in order to fit in place, it is very snug in there! On the other part could've used 7mm foam but it is what it is. If I go that route it will cost a fortune lol :D

how good does the ait flow thru it. i used air conditioning filter for lining some of my case mostly for dust prevention, air flow, and looks.

I did not put any foam where there would be airflow, so I can't really tell you that :/


IF you meant airflow in general:

Front fans at 60-70%

Top fan on low

Rear fan on low

I try to keep positive to neutral pressure in the case.

OK guys, another update. As I have said, I want to mod the side panel since it looked ridiculous right from the start and I don't use side fans, no need for turbulence in the airflow.

But first, as I've had a bit of foam left I did this:

Case 2.jpeg

Case 3.jpeg


Afterwards, I went to mod the side panel. I used glass instead of plastic stuff. First I bought the 3mm thick glass panel cut to approximately the correct dimensions. Then, cut the side panel to the desired shape, repainted in black and the side glass panel is put in place using silicone sealant.

All the cutting is done by hand with a grinder. And here is the result:

Case 1.jpeg



CAse 4.jpeg


That's it for now. I can enjoy it again like a new case :D


PS. Iphone cameras are poop. It's much better in real life

Dosn't look as good HAHA. I would like a Motherboard that has a black PCB and Heatsinks, but don't want to drop the cash on it, also a new CPU and RAM, maybe an M.2 SSD, one day but not now.

Update: Swapped out my 5 year old XFX Core Series 650W PRO (you've served me well, you'll be missed *salutes*) for Corsair CX550M, for a more clean look. I didn't manage the cables, because well, this case doesn't really have much of that because it's very, very open and airflow oriented.
