Default Re: Antec nine hundred

Ive got the antec 900 hundred and id say its awesome! but if your using a GTX you may want to get a main ATX power connector extension for your power supply as it'll have to go over the window edge of the gpu rather than round the back to the 20/24 pin socket. I say this as my ATX 20/24pin is tight and im using a ATI X1950 pro card, just a little advice lol.

Hot air rises but the fan pulls the air through the psu before this happens i think.

What does hot air rising have to do with anything?

PSU at the bottom, so it gets cool air... cool air keeps PSU cool, so its output is steady and level. The top 200MM fan is where your hot air go.

Actually, the 900 looks to be a really cool running case.

It is, the purpose i got the Antec 900 was because my gpu was getting a little too warm for my liking and it dropped my temps by 10c on the gpu, cpu about 5-6c
