Congratulations on your purchase of the Nine Hundred Two V3!

The best-sellingAntec Nine Hundred offers gamers an unbeatable enclosure, one that delivers a combination of cooling, performance and convenience and stands head and shoulders above the competition. The Nine Hundred Two V3 builds on this design, adding a CPU cutout, internal bottommounted 2.5” SSD drive bay and front USB 3.0 port. We know your gaming hardware produces a lot of heat, so we’ve built this case for maximum cooling, with a perforated front bezel, three 120 mm fans with mounts for even more fans and a monstertop-mounted200 mm fan.

The Nine Hundred Two V3 comes without a power supply. Make sure you choose a power supply that is compatible with your computer components and has a long enough power harness to reach your motherboard and peripheral devices. We recommend our High Current Gamer or High Current Pro power supplies for the latest ATX specification compliance, broad compatibility, and power-savingcapability.

At Antec, we continually refine and improve our products to ensure the highest quality. It’s possible that your new case will differ slightly from the descriptions in this manual. This isn’t a problem; it’s simply an improvement. As of the date of publication, all features, descriptions, and illustrations in this manual are correct.

Disclaimer: This manual is not designed to cover CPU, RAM, or expansion card installation. Please consult the motherboard manual for specific mounting instructions and troubleshooting. Before proceeding, check the manual for your CPU cooler to find out if there are steps you must take before installing the motherboard. While installing hardware, keep your case on a flat, stable surface.

Hardware Installation Guide

2.1Setting Up

1.Place the case upright on a flat, stable surface so that the rear panel (power supply and expansion slots) is facing you.

2.Remove the panel thumbscrews from the side panel and open it by sliding it towards you.

Note: Place the panel thumbscrews carefully aside as they are NOT interchangeable with the HDD cage thumbscrews.

3.Remove the panel thumbscrews from the other side panel and open it by sliding it towards you. Place the screws carefully aside. Inside the case is the power supply mount at the lower rear of the case and the 5.25” drive bay area with two HDD cages inside the bays. You will also find some wiring with marked connectors (USB, PWR etc.), an installed I/O panel and a toolbox containing more hardware (screws, brass standoffs, etc.).

Note: Don’t use your fingernails to pry or lift the panels.

2.2Power Supply Installation

1.With the case upright, place the power supply on the four silicone pads on the bottom of the case.

Note: Power supplies will need to be mounted so that the PSU fan is facing the top of the case.

Nine Hundred Two V3 provides mounting holes for power supplies with standard mounting layouts to be installed upside up or upside down.

2.Push the power supply to the back of the case and align the mounting holes.

3.Attach the power supply to the case with the screws provided.

2.3Motherboard Installation

1.Lay the case down so that the open side is up.

2.Make sure you have the appropriate I/O panel for the motherboard. If the panel provided is not suitable for the motherboard, please contact the motherboard manufacturer for the correct I/O panel.

3.Line up the motherboard with the standoff holes. Determine which holes line up and remember where they are. Not all motherboards will match with all of the provided screw holes, and this is not necessary for proper functionality. Some standoffs may be preinstalled for your convenience.

4

4.Lift up and remove the motherboard.

5.Screw in the brass standoffs to the threaded holes that line up with the motherboard.

6.Place the motherboard on the brass standoffs. Screw in the motherboard to the standoffs with the provided Phillips-headscrews.

2.4Flexi-DriveBay System

The Nine Hundred Two V3 comes with nine 5.25” external drive bays at the front of the case. There are three HDD cages pre-installedinside the bottom six 5.25” bays. Each HDD cage occupies three consecutive 5.25” drive bays and can house three hard disk drives. For maximum flexibility you can mount the HDD cage anywhere within the external drive bays (i.e., you are not limited to the bottom six bays).

Possible drive bay combinations include but are not limited to:

External 3 x 5.25” + internal 6 x HDD

External 6 x 5.25” + internal 3 x HDD

External 9 x 5.25”

There is a middle fan bracket pre-installedon one of the HDD cages. You can install a 120 mm fan to the bracket so the air will be blown into the case to use the HDD cage as a cooling duct to cool your graphics card or CPU. This will prevent the installation of hard drives into this cage, however. Remove the middle fan bracket from the HDD cage if you decide to mount your hard drives into this cage.

• External 3 x 5.25” + internal 3 x HDD + cooling duct

You can connect either the AC’97 or the HDA connector, depending on the model of the motherboard. Locate the internal audio connectors from your motherboard or sound card and connect the corresponding audio cable. Consult your motherboard or sound card manual for the pin-outpositions. Even if your system supports both audio standards, you may only use one connector.

3.4Power Switch / Reset Switch / Hard Disk Drive LED Connectors

Connected to your front panel are LED and switch leads for power, reset, and HDD LED activity. Attach these to the corresponding connectors on your motherboard. Consult your motherboard manual for specific pin header locations. For LEDs, colored wires are positive ( + ). White or black wires are negative ( – ). If the LED does not light up when the system is powered on, try reversing the connection. For more information on connecting LEDs to your motherboard, see your motherboard manual.

Note: Polarity (positive and negative) does not matter for switches. There is also no Power LED in this case. The illuminated case fans will turn on when there is power to the computer.
