The Antec 900 seems like a nice case. I am REALLLLLLLLLLY REALLLLLLY hoping to have mine assembled on Wednesday.... Working on mine right now.... I also have the Thermalright Ultra Extreme-120, but not installed until the 900 is done.

Actually, there's a reason for it, mattchew. The latest version caused my system to crash. I researched on the net and found it was not unsual, either. Hence why I'm using 0.94.

So, are we saying the Antec 900 is the better option? I'm suspicious of space, though. Doesn't the Armour have more space for bigger and better coolers?

What kind of coolers are you meaning? There are several members with the Antec 900, at least one of which is running a Tuniq Tower 120, and a few I think (myself to shortly be added to the list) with Thermalright Ultra Extreme 120's.... Not sure what else is out there that would be bigger than that.

Here is mgcook's 900 with Tuniq (hope you dont mind I used your pic...)


mnelson07 has a 900 with TRUE, but I am not aware of any pics he has of it...
veedubfreak also has the TRUE and an Antec 900

Hi Dragon.

Basically, I'm tearing my hair out over whether to get a 900, or an Armour. Both have great reviews.

I'm swaying more towards the Armor, as it has more space for bigger coolers. Although the 900 does seem to boast fantastic cooling abilities.

I'm after the Armor VA8003BWS, is there any difference between that and the VH6000BWS model?
