Antec Shows Off Enormous Nineteen Hundred Enclosure

By - Source: TechPowerUp | B 32 comments

Antec has revealed a new upcoming enclosure, the Nineteen Hundred.

Some enclosures are big, others are really big, but a small number of them are ludicrously big. Now imagine the following -- The Corsair Obsidian 900D falls under the really big category. You'd be asking yourself "What could possibly fall under the ludicrously big category?"

The answer is Antec's Nineteen Hundred. The super-tower case is a staggering two feet high, and has support for the biggest components, as well as a huge number of storage devices. It can house motherboards up to HPTX, E-ATX and of course standard ATX motherboards in size, as well as up to 17 storage devices. The enclosure features three optical drive bays, 12 3.5" bays (which can also hold 2.5" drives), and two 2.5" drive bays. The case also has nine expansion slots.

Beyond being able to hold a large number of hard drives and SSDs, the case can also house two power supplies. Put two 1500 W power supplies in there and you've got yourself three kilowatts of power with which to play around.

Made of 0.8 mm thick steel, we cannot expect the Nineteen Hundred to be light, though even if it were, filling it up would put it in the not carry-able classification anyway.

The company gave no word on what different versions of the chassis there would be, but we hope that there will be more colors available than just green. There was also no word on pricing or availability.

    Wow, and I thought carrying my full tower around each semester was a pain.

    Beautiful case. I love these super towers! Plenty of room for a large load of RAID setup

    certainly interesing, you can probably fit 2 480mmx120mm rads on the bottom, maybe another 360mmx120mm rad up at the top? and even after all that you'll have plenty of space left over for everything else lol.

    The super-tower case is a staggering two feet high

    I am not really impressed by that, honestly.

    I love my Antec 900 - 2, so i was curious when i saw the 1900 in the Tom's newsfeed. man is that stupid big. only possible use would be for something running with a 3 or 4 titan's in SLi, with a custom liquid cooling rig including the gpu cooling... multiple loops, resivours and psus for all the hardware.
    Toss in like a dozen hard-drives for a huge RAID 10 array and you've got that space filled up nicely. insane. what's the market for this?
    even then i think it's overkill

    Can't wait to see some cool liquid cooled builds with this case! This, the 900D, and the cases from Case Labs are some really huge cases.

    This thing still can't support ASRock's 22 SSD array :(

    Talk about a cooling nightmare.
    If I was to design one of these, I would move the 3.5" bays to the rear to port thermals out the back and move the motherboard forward to port thermals out the top/side. The dual supplies would be in series across the bottom vented out the same side as the motherboard. The Antec 902 I thought was well designed but even it would not directly translate into something like this and retain its cooling characteristics. Heat is electronics greatest enemy next to water.

    Nah, ludicrously big is the rack Onyx I have in my garage...

    It's the tall black unit on the right. When Antec make a case that big,
    then I'll be impressed, hehe...

    I bought a HAF 932 for my 3930K, but even then it could do with
    being a bit taller. With the PSU at the top, there's almost no space
    between the PSU and the top of the mbd.

    I like Antec's cases... mostly their more reasonably sized, silent series. I've owned several, including a few different Sonata cases. I just bought a Solo II, those things are great. It's quiet, and just large enough to house a full ATX board and long graphics card. It could use a few minor upgrades though. Not sure if I'll need to do any modifications for this build, probably not. But I'd like to see them release a Solo III either way!

    What's the EXACT height? Seems to be a standard super-tower like the Xigmatek Elysium:

    I could fill it. I'd love to mod one!

    Great case for a small part of the market segment.

    Heat is electronics greatest enemy next to water.

    Empirical evidence seems to disagree - within reason.

    While it has been long believed that cooler temperatures around 20C range made electronics more reliable, field failure studies from Google and others have determined that failures are actually lowest across the 25-40C range and many new datacenters are being designed to leverage natural convection for primary cooling ("cool" air in from the floor below, hot air out the floor above) instead of heat exchangers/pumps to take advantage of that.
