Antec's Mid-Sized 1100 enclosure can hold a lot of hardware

The Antec 1100 enclosure is a mid-tower design but with enough space inside to accommodate an XL-ATX board as well as coolers of up to 170mm (6.7").  The included cooling is impressive, with a possible nine 120mm fans installable though it only comes with two.  There are six 3.5" drive bays, two 2.5" bays and three 5.25" bays, with the HDD bays set up front to back, sideways from the usual case design.  [H]ard|OCP did have a few improvements to the case that they would have liked Antec to include but as the case walked away with a Silver Award, those additions would simply make a good case even better.   If you are shopping for a $100 enclosure that can handle SSDs without adapters then you should check out their review.

"We take a long [H]ard look at Antec's new Eleven Hundred model chassis that is billed by Antec as being "The Advanced Gaming Authority." This relatively inexpensive DIY chassis is chock full of features and represents a flagship in the Antec line. Our new testing format takes its maiden voyage on the Eleven Hundred."
