Antec has listed a new P9 Window tower enclosure on their site ahead of Computex, and while it's listed as "not available" at the moment, that should change by the end of the month.

So what is this P9 Window? It's a straightforward case with a big side window, excellent storage and cooling support, and dual onboard fan controllers.

"Don’t let the sleek, understated exterior fool you. The P9 Window is loaded with builder-focused features that deliver performance, Quiet Computing, and future-proof expandability right out of the box. The interior volume, the variety of cooling options, and the modular HDD cages are just a few of the features that make the P9 Window stand out in the Performance One series."

Pricing shown in Antec's listing is a reasonable $109 for a full-tower design like this, and we'll doubtless get a chance to see how its performing soon enough as reviews start coming out.

It looks very similar to the Antec 1100 on the inside(which is the case I have). The biggest gripe I have about my case is that hte drive cages are riveted in place, is that the same with this case?

Antec says both cages are removable, and they appear to be removed in the last photo in this post.

Well, while it is my fault for not reading all of the text, but I would have thought that the removable feature would have also been listed in the section titled "13 Total Drive Bays:" and not just in the "Water cooling support:" section.
As far as the picture goes, from that angle I can't tell if the drive cage supports are removed or not. I mean it is obvious all the sleds are taken out because of the fans, but really hard to tell if the support brackets are still in place. I say that because in my 1100, there are spots to mount fans attached to sides of the drive cage support brackets.
Price is decent too, about what I payed for my case 4 years ago.

Antec guys suck balls. Corsair or GTFO. Decent case though. Just F the company, PM's, Reps, and their notoriously shitty Product Support in the channel.

"Decent case or Corsair" it is, indeed. GTFO.

I hope you can get a review of this case Sebastian. I haven't been impressed with Antec cases for a long time. They were the king back in the day, and now they are an embarrassment and I think they should be ashamed of themselves.

i think the case looks perfect. for one thing, a bluray burner is a necessity, so im glad they kept the 5.25" bays. and since there are 3 of them, you can install an icydock or two and ditch the hdd cages, for superior air flow. also, 360mm top rad support. this case has the perfect feature set. my only gripe is that they didnt go with more aluminum.
