Antec Nine Hundred Two: Second Generation Gamer Caseby Christoph Katzer on February 13, 2009 3:00 AM EST

We have already looked at quite a few cases from Antec, including the extremely popular P160, the follow-up P182, and the Three Hundred. We didn't get a chance to test the Nine Hundred or the Twelve Hundred, but today we're looking at the successor to the Nine Hundred: the Antec Nine Hundred Two. The appearance has changed a little and it does include some new features, but it retains many similarities with its predecessor, including the nine front 5.25" drive bays.
The focus of this chassis is clearly on the gaming market, where users want maximum performance but still desire a case that's easy enough to carry to LAN parties. The Antec Three Hundred impressed us with a smaller chassis and simple but effective features, and while it's somewhat larger we expect very good things from the Nine Hundred Two as well. Let's start with a look at the specifications for the chassis, then we'll take a closer look at its appearance, internal design, ease of use, and performance.
