Has anyone heard of the case Antec NX800?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

It's design is pretty much similar to the Cooler Master H500P Mesh however being priced so competitively, I doubt that the 200mm Fans on the front will have decent RPM and CFM.

What's your view on this Cabinet?

I dont know many 200mm sized fans that spin above 1000rpm, but their CFM ratings are almost always very good. It's the static pressure that's always very poor on these sized fans. 

 

The appropriate comparison would be to the Coolermaster Mastercase H500, not the H500P Mesh. There dont seem to be any current prices at least in the US right now, but lookign at PCP it was historiclly at $100, which is what the Mastercase H500 should theoretically cost (currently inflated due to import taxes) I'd probably only ever consider the NX800 if it were a decently lower price than the CM version.

How comparable do you think Antec NX800 is to the coolermaster H500?

H500 appears to have better build quality, but thats about it. Airflow restrictions looks to be the same, so assuming the fans are of similar CFM, they'd likely preform identically. Cable management looks sightly better in the H500 but it's hard to determine how many tie down points the Antec case has without seeing the right side panel removed. It'd come down to personal aesthetic tastes and location pricing. The Antec might be cheaper in eastern countries, and more expensive in Western  countries (Specifically NA, as Antec doesnt have as big of a presence here)
