In a nutshell, the Nine Hundred is a mid-tower steel chassis with plastic accents. This case will hold a lot of drives and gives the user an abundance of configuration options.


With four included TriCool fans (one of which is a gargantuan 200mm!), the Nine Hundred was obviously designed with cooling in mind. Placements for two more optional fans give the user even more cooling capability. We'll go over the other features in more detail later.


 

 

 

 

 


As you can see, the fans can be individually controlled to tailor air movement to the users particular needs. I expect very good cooling from the Nine Hundred, but I'll be interested to hear how loud all these fans are.

 

PRODUCT COMPOSITION




The Nine Hundred arrived in an attractive and sturdy cardboard carton. Inside, the case is protected by a plastic bag and nestled between foam blocks.



There aren't many accessories, owing to the fact that the Nine Hundred comes out of the box requiring little attention from the user. Two zip-bags of hardware are lying on a vinyl mat that goes in a tray atop the case. A multi-language manual and pin assignment sheet will make for a trouble-free installation, and the included 3-year warranty and contest documents will give the user some added confidence in his/her purchase. Rounding out the accessories are the adapter and grille for floppy drive installation.
