Amazing case! 11/20/2012
This review is from: Antec Twelve Hundred Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Plenty of cooling
HUGE amount of space.
Front drive bays can be moved around 3 drives at a time.
Comes with all the fans you need. All adjustable without even having to open the case or rig it to software, although you CAN rig it to software if you want.
Very tough, very good build quality.
Supports watercooling and even has a location set aside to mount the hardware.
Good cable management.
A very clean look to it, it's lit up with the three fans in front, two in back and one on top (provided!) but it's subdued and not cheesey, it just looks amazing for those who want a little "wow" factor yet a clean look.
Please be aware that there are newer revisions to this case. V3 being the best. I got this one for 94 bucks on a black friday sale, but it's a little pricey normally for the newest revision. (around 150-250 depending on time)
This revision does NOT have
SSD mounting support, you'll have to buy it from Antec.
The filters on this older revision are harder to get to, you need to open the case and then unscrew 24 thumbscrews to slide the drive trays forward an inch in order to remove the filters for cleaning. The new revision has it setup so you don't need to do that. Just FYI.
Will fit pretty much anything you want, however it will not fit a Corsair H100 Liquid Cooler without offsetting the fans slightly on the rad. There are a few threads in the popular overclocking forums confirming this.(Yes there is a review website for the H100 that used this case, but I could never get them to give me a clear answer and it does seem like they had to off-set it somehow that's not clear in the pictures).
It will fit just about anything else though.
See it on sale? Buy it. It's performance and value are amazing.
Don't see it on sale? Wait for it or get something else.
