space-wise, these seem to be the two cases that will fit into the space I have, yet will offer enough cooling for a quad-core, dual 8800 GT rig. I would like to go with the Antec 900 (due its slightly better cooling reputation) but I have read horror stories on their cable management and tight space. Any comments from those that put together systems with either of these two cases? (note - I am not into looks at all and would far prefer a good build experience).
I am looking to put an EVGA 680i MB in it, 2 8800GTs (when I find them), and use a Silverstone Zeus 850W power supply (ST85ZF).
Also, now that I am thinking about it, anybody use this PSU with either of these two cases? Any problem with PSU cable lengths?
One thing to note: For better air flow, I removed the mid drive bay completely which allowed the front fan to have an unobstructed path to the Video Cards and CPU Heatsink.
Another cool effect that I had (which I didn't even realize would happen until I had everything installed) is that the top exhaust fan was within an inch of the Heatsink, effectively creating a 2 fan heatsink which I'm guessing has improved temps by a degree or two. One of these days I'll provide pics to show what I'm talking about.
I just purchased the 900 will be reassmbling my rig after I receive my mobo back from RMA, cable management should be a problem. I have posted this link here before, http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=12... . This can give a few ideas abou cable managemnt. You may not have to cut hold in the case like this guy did. HTH
