    Antec 600 / 902 case mod for PAX East 2010

    Close examination of Antec's newest gaming case before it goes into my hands, Antec Six Hundred case review



    New top grill design concept..



    Top grill design concept..image 2 finished



    Left side side panel cover design for Antec 902, this will be for 2nd case Antec is auctioning off.



    We finished the new vented top piece to replace the Antec 600's "moonroof"







    goodbye Plexi window...hehe









    Updated 2/26: Top plate for the 902, the recessed portions will be painted Black







    Triple 120 intake was to be based off our 120mm Nautilus Fan Grill

    Thank you carlos!

    Fitting the new triple turbine intake onto the Antec 600.







    Updated 3/16/10, Final photos

    I got swamped, so I didn't have much time for taking photos before shipping it out. I still need to edit the 902 photos too!


    The exterior finish is a custom mix of Silver Metallic and Gloss Black PPG automotive paint. I absolutely love how this color came out. I would consider painting a car this color... We imagined it on a `68 - `72, Chevelle, Malibu, Nova, or GTO. This case mod was inspired by my love for Hot Rods if you couldn't tell...lol :cooldude:


    360 Turbine style front intake was made from 3/4" thick aluminum. The design was inspired by the "Nautilus" Overkill 120mm fan grill.


    Each of the 120mm Turbine Fans is 2000 rpm, 79.4 cfm @ 30 dBA.




    The vented side panel was cnc milled from 3/16" thick billet aluminum. "Antec - Believe it" logo is engraved in the surface.




    The Antec 600's smoked acrylic moon-roof was replaced by this vented billet panel.


    The honeycomb grill was also custom painted. A remote 3-speed switch is mounted in the rear of the chassis that lets you balance the 200mm fan's performance. You can also switch off the Blue LEDs.


    120mm Turbine fan's chrome plated prop-spinners.

    Thanks for comments guys The billet intake resides inside the stock bezel. I've drilled and tapped the sides of the intake for 8/32 size socket head machine screws.

    Looks nice as usual Bill, but please tell me you're not going to leave the inside of it looking the way Antec made it? Somehow the 600 seems a drastic departure from the Antec norm. Crazy features like the "moon roof", yet not as good air flow as some of their previous offerings and worse looks in some ways.

    Photos of the Antec 600 panels and front bezel a few hours after clear coating. I really love this color. It will be great contrast to the machined aluminum features we created!

    Antec 600 / 902 case mod for PAX East 2010

    This looks great but:

    only 3 3-1/4" drives...why not increase the drive cage to 4, and put another one right next to it for 8 possible drives.

    would the side panels be vented on both sides?
