    Currently using a Cooler Master Cosmos S and I'm liking' every bit about it however there are a few things that would make it even better, a reset switch/button and a removable motherboard tray.

    Yeah, I think a reset button is absolutely necessary. By the way, what I like about the Antec Nine Hundred Two is that it has built-in fan controls on all (or most) of its fans. Fan controllers aren't cheap, ya know! I could spend ~$30 on a fan controller, and pay the same price for an Antec 900 as an Antec 902 without the extra controller. I think that might just be my next case :p

    Wow, that is very nice!! It looks huge. Is that an NZXT Sentry controller panel?

    Did you get a new system with that also?

    Oh really? I looked at the price of those cases and it was like 350 dollars. So I was kind of shocked when all he said was "my new case" lol.

    As mentioned by Slugbug the case and the sentry were free from a NZXT forum contest. It is one of those things I would never drop the cash on if given the choice - I'm just too practical to spend $350-$400 on a computer case. But now that I have it I love it :) Here are a couple of pictures of the inside.

    This case delivers some serious cooling performance. My temps dropped 5c-10c across the board over my Cooler Master 690 with 7 case fans. I am running 7 fans in the Khaos but apparently the placement is much better for moving air through the case.

    Wow Clay that is a beautiful machine you have there... I think I might have just found my next case whenever I build a new machine. That thing is insanely awesome!

    Yup, their website overall needs overhauling. I bought this as its the cheapest quality case I could find near my city. It's a temp case until I get a 300 later :)

    This particular model is already phased-out. It still uses 80mm fan on front and back. It's really hot in there...

    Geez Clay, that thing looks like two cases put together in the second picture. For a second, I thought, "where the heck are the drive racks?" lol

    I really like how those fans are separating the drives from the components. Now that I see the guts, I can tell why that puppy costs so much.

    /jealousy :p

    "NZXT Khaos - 93%/100% Cooling Score
    'Great at cooling, but its Chaotic and Overpriced"

    So, according to Custom PC its one of THE BEST cases at cooling for its size....but overpriced.

    x.clay how much did your Khaos cost you?

    That is an excellent prize to win from a Contest, nice one x.clay :D

    I wouldnt mind winning a case in a competition.

    Having a case to start you off with would force me to buy new hardware to put into it.

    Otherwise i would just feel like i would be neglecting it.

    And seeing as i have an Antec 900 it would be pointless swapping my current hardware out of it as its a way more than adequate case for me :)

    Haha, definitely the same situation with the hardware here. Except that I really have no hardware to put in it, so I would be forced to get some new hardware, lol.

    I have an eSATA bracket - thats about all I could put on it for now :p
