Antec Shows Off Enormous Nineteen Hundred Enclosure

Image Source: TechPowerUp

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.

    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 :(

    Now I'll get all the ladies.
