Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Upgraded USB 3.0
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs couldn't ask for more (update) 12/26/2014

This review is from: Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Upgraded USB 3.0

Pros: i bought this case nearly 7 years ago have over 18.2 k hrs on it (2.08 yrs) and it has been nothing but solid. Solid construction , solid performance . Thumb screws have been great and dependable for all the changes that have been made and all the times taken apart to clean it . Allows a very large amount of airflow through it and all but top fan can be reversed if needed.(that too might be able to be reversed never looked ) If you want a case and possibly the last case you may ever need to buy this makes the short list . i have had no issues fitting any video card I have put in here .

Cons: not as much a con but an observation is that it lets you know that you live in a dusty environment as the dust will show on the front of the case, letting you know when to clean it , Mine sits on a carpeted floor so that impacts the dust.

Other Thoughts: Having the 3 speed fans lets you adjust to your needs on all low its nearly silent, medium you can hear it but it is no louder than any other case i have heard and not loud enough that you cant whisper over it , never tried high even with 2 blowdriers (gtx280's) i never put them past medium the 2 gpu fans were way louder than rest of case and I have a fan on the side cover slot. Just recently after all the use has one of the fans started to make a little noise, i took it out used some silicone lube and back to normal. I plan on buying another one when I do my next build and giving this to my wife i think in another 5 yrs ill write another review.

Pros: quiet ultra reliable and room for sli or anything you need . built solid enough to have been there for more that n two builds and over 6 yrs of solid service

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: this is my second review (i was looking for when i bought my logitech surround sound and i came across my purchase on my case) and it was over 6 yrs ago i have never had an issue with a fan a screw or anything (other than my kids broke a usb port) this has out lasted almost any case that i know of and i expect to buy another antec if i do another build

Rosewill FB-04 Dual-Fan ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, One Preinstalled Front 120mm Fan, One Rear 80mm Fan

  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: the front of the case looks very nice the brushed areas look good and the center gloss piece is very nice. the front panel has vents on the side for good airflow to the front fan. the usb ports are nice fitting,well placed , large power button and easy to push reset button . the sides are a matte finish which looks ok, there is ample room between the psu area and the mobo area which allowed me to run the wires between the cooler and psu (artic pro 64) . fans are quiet with decent wiring lengths has thumb screws for the side panels and it came with a large screw assortment

Cons: as stated from other users this case is a bit on the thin side but the mobo tray and drive bays are pretty rigid not a huge con to me. the one con that bothered me is that it barely fit my single evga 470 gtx , I had to abandon the way I had the setup before with ide hdd /optical and try to use a sata hdd. i would suggest using all sata.And if you have hdd's in their slots you wont have room for any large pci cards that is why i gave it 4 eggs other than that its a great value

Other Thoughts: i had the cpu open on my entertainment center behind my tv and wanted to get a case to return it to a desktop for my kids this case is pretty decent and would work well for anyone building a cpu for web/data etc but any build with a full size vid card would not be suggested i only used the 470 cause it was an leftover as was the ide optical i have several rosewill products and they do make a great product just like any other brand they have lvls of quality i have used some of their other higher lvl gaming cases for friends to great result and they make a solid psu and solid cooling products. IMO use this case for a daily browser cpu or if you dont have hvy hardware for gaming this case is for you
