Antec Twelve Hundred V3 Black Steel ATX Full Tower Unbeatable Gaming Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

3 out of 5 eggs Quality dropped some, still a good case 12/20/2013

This review is from: Antec Twelve Hundred V3 Black Steel ATX Full Tower Unbeatable Gaming Case

Pros: The CPU cutout is a nice feature for installing CPU coolers. I like that spare length from the PSU cables can be "tucked into" the HDD bays on the bottom, it helps clean up the inside of my case some.

Cons: Compared to my old 1200 case, the panels just don't seem to fit as nicely. They pop out as soon as the screws are removed.

Other Thoughts: Also bought an Antec HCP 1000W PSU. Not sure if the con should be in this review or that one (I'm going to mention it in both)
Their "ultimate gaming case" has 7 fans, all using 3-pin fan connectors. When I bought my first 1200 in 2008, they used molex 4-pins.
The power supply, after talking about how it's ready for a "new level of flexibility" and can adapt to everything, had 2 molex cables and no fan connectors.
I know the fans are supposed to plug into the mobo, but how many of them have 7 plugs? It seems like Antec could have thought that one through a bit more. Instead, I had to drive across town to buy two dollars worth of connectors and hook the 200mm fan and one of the back fans to the PSU through a molex adaptor.
