The Antec Eleven Hundred Case is exactly what you should be looking for in a mid-tower case. There's lots drive bays, cable management, hole on motehrboard tray, excellent ventilation, large window on side panel and plenty of space to work. This is one of the best case currently on the market.

This case is so awesome. Only thing i dont like about it is that the side panel fan intakes dont have dust filters. Otherwise near perfect!

Yes, as I mentioned in the video review, it supports up to 13" (330 mm) video cards.

Antec is finally back on track after all these years...

All that and they chose plastic feet? It seemed so sound conscientious until then.

Hi, I have a second hand Antec Nine Hundred and during delivery it got a small crack on the window and generally the window just isnt in the condition I want it to be in. My question is do you know if I can buy a new side panel or do you know of any other solutions to my problem?

Contact the company and get them to send new a new one, either case or side panel. If you don't want to do that or if they won't by a piece of clear acrylic and cut it to size.

How can you rate it as 100% kickass when you acknowledged that it lacks a feature out of the box (front 120mm fan)?

It is a nice case though. 90% kickass?

A fan might not be included at the front, but you can certainly add one or two or next to nothing. And if you're anything like me, you have a few kicking around. Remember, when rating products I take many things into account. So if it's missing one fan and the case is overall amazing, I'm not going to lower the rating. You're certainly welcome to your own opinion though.

I think that the stock cooling makes a lot of noise.

Looks like a good case. The window it a great size, its just a pity it has that vent in it.

Very nice. I think it'll be nice to have it as a server. I currently have a server acting as a router, file server, and some other things, but my NZXT Gamma case works for me. I'll probably have to look for a very quiet intake fan to cool the hard drives, because with up to 6 hard drives, that's a lot. With the Antec, it's nice having 9 expansion slots so I could have a serial port expansion slot that gets plugged into the motherboard's serial port header. Well, I could get a multi-serial port PCI adapter, of course, and use the other two slots for something that I might want to use, like a place to hold one solid state drive or a PCI fan controller.
