Installation began with putting the motherboard standoffs in the correct places for my particular motherboard. I then attempted to arrange the 4-pin molex fan connectors to see if I could outline some type of wire management plan. Next I installed the power supply. The I/O shield also had to be replaced with one that fit my motherboard.
Installing the motherboard was fairly easy; there was plenty of room to just drop it right in, even with the heatsink and fan attached. Next, I installed my video card. Note that this case does not have a tool-less design. Although I do not mind the lack of tool-less installation, it would have been nice to see a removable motherboard tray. The hard drive cages are held in the case by four thumbscrews on each side of the case. They are easily removed and installing the drives is a piece of cake.
The final picture shows the finished product and the only problem I really had with the Antec 900 case. The wire management on this case presents some unique challenges. The side panel behind the motherboard tray was no help when it came time to hiding the wires.
