It's no secret that enthusiasts, overclockers and professionals mostly choose full towers to house their systems in order to take advantage of their massive interior space and much better potential airflow levels. I also happen to believe that the larger the tower the easier it is to fit the largest possible hardware components inside, swap them and to build an very efficient and complete cooling system. Unfortunately nowadays the trend is to shrink everything and so most manufacturers focus in releasing mini ATX/ITX cases in an effort to cover the largest percentage of the consumer base. Luckily however exceptions do happen from time to time by some of the leading manufacturers in the market and so today we will be taking a look at the largest Full Tower ever released by our friends over at Antec the quite remarkable Nineteen Hundred (1900) Ultimate Gaming Case.
Antec, Inc., is the leading global brand of high-performance computer components and accessories for the gaming, PC upgrade and Do-It-Yourself (DIY) markets.

The company’s products are sold in more than 40 countries throughout the world. Please visit www.antec.com for more information.
The brand new Nineteen Hundred is unlike any other full tower (or any tower for that matter) introduced by Antec in the past not only because of its very high build quality and massive size giving it a very spacious interior for even the longest graphics cards in 3-Way SLI/CF but also because of the many features it packs. These features include two seperate chambers, 6 pre-installed fans complete with dust filters and speed controllers (plus two available mounts), completely tool-free design, twelve 2.5"/3.5" drive trays, two PSU bays, 9 expansion slots, compatibility with XL-ATX mainboards, top 240mm radiator mount, 4 USB 3.0 ports at the front and much more. Bottom line it really seems that with the Nineteen Hundred Antec aims to take on several colossal PC cases like the Obsidian 900D by Corsair and the Cosmos II by Cooler Master and we're amongst the very first in the world to check and see if they've succeeded.
