    I was thinking of getting Thermaltake Armor Series VA8000
    but i noticed many have the antec 900 and its a bit smaller and takes less space.

    To who who got antec 900 dose it fit 2x 8800gtx?
    hows the cables mangment ?
    overall how is it?

    thx u

    Reports are that it will easily fit 2 8800's
    As for cable management, its not the best, but its not the worst by a long shot because the psu is located at the bottom of the case, this means the 24pin mobo connector (and p4/8) need to go over or under or around the gfx cards where necessary.
    Otherwise, it’s a very well ventilated case; 3x120mm fans and a massive 200mm fan - all with 3 speed settings. You won’t probably need them on high, it does a great job all on low. Space for 3 disk drives, 6 HDD's and 2 more 120mm fans - one of these will need to be removed for an 8800 to fit. not really a problem imho.

    It will fit 2 8800gtxs, but you won't be able to put hard drives in the 5 1/4 bays directly behind the 8800 cards. And you will likely have to remove the fan holder, or move the drive bay module with the fan holder to the top of the case.

    I'm in the same boat as you. I was actually thinking the armor might be a better choice since it has more room, almost the same amount of fans, and better airflow (since it's larger). I also think it looks better.

    Don't worry about the 900 not having enough air flow. I got my antec 900 a couple months ago and it's got crazy air flow. Especially if you use a side vent fan, which you don't really need to.

    Hmm... Not sure about this one. The Armor has enough space for 2 8800GTX's and enough airflow to keep them cool. I'm a big fan of Armors, got one myself so. The cooling capabilities are great!
