This review is from: Antec Twelve Hundred V3 Black Steel ATX Full Tower Unbeatable Gaming Case
Pros: Very good build quality, Excellent airflow, Plenty of space
Fan filters are easily removed if you do them in the right order, Just by sliding the HDD cages out and pulling each filter up on the tab. was able to fit a cooler master evo 212 aftermarket cooler on the cpu so plenty of width for things like that, and plenty long for any GPU.
Cons: Not very good radiator support, this is not a water coolers case i could not for the life of me find an easy way to install a radiator with my MOBO and SLI setup, it's the sli that does it but still the only place you have is the front if you have long enough tubes (or a custom loop) and the back which both severely limit the space you have in there respective places. Especially if you compare it to the ease of installing a radiator to a CM HAF 932 this case is a pain in the rear.
Other Thoughts: Other than that it's a fine well built spacious case. One of my USB 3.0 ports on the front failed but meh, your mileage my vary and tech fails so it's not biggie i still have to others. Also just FYI for anyone you do need 2 internal USB 3.0 connectors for the three ports on the front.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works perfectly so far, very quiet (when compared to my case fans anyway) and it dropped the temps on my CPU from 50c idle to 40c and while gaming they don't get much higher than 60-65 sometimes 70 comparing that to the stock INTEL fan i had before it's a heck of an improvement.
Cons: The only con i would say is that it says it is LGA 1150 compatible and while it does work it definitely seems off, and it took a bit to get it to really hold on, the plastic pins didn't seem to want to hold so the quality for the mounts is not as up to par.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: iBUYPOWER Gaming Desktop Intel Configurator
Pros: Worked just fine out of the box as you would expect a pre-built pc to work.
Wires looked nice and tidy looked fine through the side window and the case i got (source 210) has quite a bit of room for expansion.
Cons: main cons are minor.
Motherboard and PSU are entirely average even on the highest tier so if you decide you really want to upgrade or want SLI will have to replace those.
and cpu cooler is also entirely meh. probably wanna replace that also if upgrading.
Other Thoughts: Just Fyi did upgrade mine just the couple things i found i had to replace for SLI mainly. also bought more fans for it. Hopefully they might considering offering better motherboards at least eventually. Still perfectly happy with it though.READ FULL REVIEW
