Antec Eleven Hundred Gaming Case

The Antec Eleven Hundred gaming case is a mid-tower that can hold a full size XL-ATX motherboard. Its nine expansion slots accommodate elite 13-inch GPU configurations up to 3-way NVIDIA SLI or 4-way AMD CrossFireX graphic cards.

Although categorized as a mid-tower it is a large mid-tower gaming case, or what is called a super mid-tower. There’s ample space for your drives: 3 x 5.25″ tool-less drive bays, 2 x 2.5” drive bays (dedicated) and 6 x 3.5” tool-less drive bays (rail-mount design). 

If you’re going to fill up all those slots and bays you’ll need a lot of cooling. The Antec Eleven Hundred includes a top 200mm blue LED exhaust fan, a rear 120mm fan and up to 7 more optional fans in strategic positions – including behind the motherboard tray.

Stuart Davidson of HardwareHeaven sums it up:

“The Eleven Hundred is a very flexible case, allowing installation of XL-ATX boards, 33cm graphics cards, 17cm coolers, liquid cooling, seven additional fans and a large number of drives. All of these will keep enthusiasts happy and ensure that combined with plenty of space for hidden wiring that an attractive high performance system can be built inside. We were also very impressed by the low noise created by the stock fans and the amount of airflow provided by the top exhaust.”
