I am upgrading my case from my Antec DF-85 to the be quiet! Dark Base Pro 900 (rev. 2). Thanks for the review red454! :)

Please accept my apologies regarding cable management. I promise to do better this time!


Should I buy extra fans (top/bottom) or do I risk messing up airflow with my setup?

Specs should be in my signature :)

It comes with 3 fans already but 1 extra can at the top for exhaust wouldn't be a bad idea.

I know this is a late reply but the more the marrier.

If you fill out all the slots you can always run at a lower rpm to create less noise and get great airflow.

"It works Because I threatened it. :lol:" - " did you show it the sledgehammer" - "No, A flight of stairs"
"I don't want to be much of a forum Nazi but this situation calls for a hail Bosco and blitzkrieg someone".

If that does not fix it I hop in a Timber Wolf and Blast it to microscopic Particles.
