Picked one up. Cant believe this didnt get more response. Thanks OP.
The Antec 900 and similar cases are yucky after witnessing better cases. I got to witness the Corsair 800t firsthand, and it is quite impressive. While it is priced in the $160-180 range, the Rosewill Gear X3[newegg.com] is better in most ways I think and was on sale for $40 + FS recently. My main contention with getting the Antec 900 is that (the version listed on the Antec site, not the updated version with USB 3 on Newegg) the posted version has no USB 3.
The Antec 900 has good airflow, but it has no filters. The X3 has filters, outward facing hard drives, cable management, and USB 3. The X3 power supply also faces downward so it never breaths any air from the case (and it has its own filter). Outward facing hard drives is a huge plus for the X3; the 900 makes it a pain to move around hard drives and clean them, and its lack of cable management is irritating.
