Conclusions

We were really impressed by this case. Its top fan is really impressive, as it produces a colossal airflow (134 cfm) keeping a low rotation speed (800 rpm) thus producing a very low noise level.

This case is definitely targeted to users with very high-end video cards under SLI or CrossFire modes and/or several hard disk drives, as it has 120 mm two frontal fans and one 120 mm rear fan to cool down your components. And you can also install two more 120 mm fans to cool down your video cards, if you want an even better thermal performance.

Each fan that comes with Nine Hundred can be individually configured at three speed levels, which is great to reduce noise, as you can configure them to run at a lower speed level. The problem we see is that each fan uses a small speed control switch, so you need to open the case in order to configure the speed of each fan. This can be annoying if you want to change the speed of the fans from maximum to medium or low from time to time.

The only real drawback we see on this case is its price. It can be found between USD 115 and USD 150 on the US market. Of course it isn’t the most expensive case around, but we think it could be sold below USD 100, especially as were are talking about a steel case here, not an aluminum one. Keep in mind that this case doesn’t come with a power supply, which is normal with high-end cases, so you still need to add the cost of a power supply.

Even with this remark we would buy one if we were assembling a very high-end gaming machine and money wasn’t an issue.
