The second chassis I ever bought to build a rig in was the Antec 900 in its original configuration. Slowly as time went on, I found the need to paint the interior, as primed steel in my opinion is ugly to look at, especially in cases with windows. I had this chassis for quite some time, and the mods kept coming. They included a PSU hole in the bottom so I could flip my PSU, and eventually water cooling and the required mounting and routing of the tubes; these both required removal of all the components to make the mods happen. The chassis was cool inside, but from what I remember it sounded similar to a jet engine at take off; something I have tried to deviate from in my normal everyday use.
AzzA is taking a shot at replicating a great concept, but adding their own special touches and trying to improve the concept as they go. The configuration of the Solano 1000 is almost spot on with the Antec, but AzzA addresses many of the faults of its predecessor. Vibrations, noise levels, and better air flow are all taken into consideration. The last time I looked at an AzzA chassis it was the Fantom 900 Mid Tower chassis. From what I recall, the build was solid, and it had plenty of LED's for those who like their cases bright.
Today we are looking at the AzzA Solano 1000. While it shares similarities to both the Antec 900 and its smaller brother, the Fantom, AzzA takes it further and stretches the concept into a full tower chassis. The chassis is black, they kept the LED's, and there is a ton of circulation. Let's get down and answer a couple of the major questions. I am personally interested in the noise levels, as most chassis designs like this are a bit loud, and the second main concern is ease of use. From what I remember, my Antec was a real PITA to work in.
