so nvidia released 2 cases im sure some of you have heard about, one is an Antec900 case that is going for a whopping $159.99 that i think is crazy i have the same case i got for $80 bucks and the other is a CoolerMaster Stacker 830 $240. bucks..

Interesting, any actual changes to the case though or just green lighting and a sticker?
December 26, 2007 6:33:39 PM

It looks that they changed the fan color on the 900 and the glass and mesh green as well. Also painted the Nvidia Logo on it. For the Stacker 830.... green mesh and painted nvidia on it...


That is not a lot of change for the amount they cost.

its just them trying to rip you off as per usual.... AMD would have (and probably have already) done the same
December 26, 2007 11:23:15 PM

Woohoo double the price for a sticker and green leds, yay.

I want mine now!











I have now removed my tongue from my cheek. LOL

Yeah, I dunno... the fan placement and case looks exactly like a regular Antec 900, just green. Coming out next month... Nvidia mice! It's a Razer Lachesis with green LED and an MSRP of $500.99.

I dont think the CoolerMaster is ESA compliant since its been out many months ago.

These are the Nvidia ones... since Nvidia is the BIG BOY pushing ESA, and it has Nvidias logo on it... I would assume that they are ESA compliant. Also, are there any watercooling kits that are ESA compliant? If so, will they cool my CPU better then my Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme?

People waste tons of money on PC's all gaming PC's are a waste of money TBH sli is a waste xfire is a waste water cooling is a waste.


Its all a waste.


So a few quid on a case isnt really a problem!!

Im more interested in the fact that the 900 is UGLY!!


The stacker kitted with green LED fans looks cool though.

Hmm they look good, but I would be concerned by the quality of the construction i.e. the material used for the side panels. Looks like thin tin to me which is ok, but you can't bean an all aluminium case. Having said that they generally retail for quite a bit more than $150.00 over in the UK, though they do last forever. My Lian Li is 7 years old now and still going strong.

If the A-nvidia-tec 900 is still really an Antec 900. It's a steel case, which weighs a ton once you fill it up. :)

Oh yeah, I got one as well and love it. :D  Just commenting on the durability. Tin or Alluminum? HAH! It's the juggernaut, bi*#%. :lol:

the 8800 GT is the best bang for the buck for this generation of cards, for sure.

Idk why people mention their construction though they are just like the normal cases which are basically 2 of the best around.


Probably for air cooling both are THE best around.

Some one should put ATI Cards in there I think it would really fit
a c 248 ) Power supply

It's nothing new. CoolerMaster did the exact same thing with a NVidia green version of the 690 case a long time ago.
April 13, 2009 5:27:20 PM

Nothing new, just like this thread...
