Pros: This thing is a beast. Provides enough power to recharge a fleet of Teslas, and is rock solid stable. Powers 4 overclocked and power hungry GPUs plus a power hungry overclocked CPU, and it doesn't miss a beat.
I haven't actually looked, but the caps on this thing must be HUGE, as the power flashed for a couple of seconds and my computer kept right on running.
Also makes a good replacement for those expensive arc welders, see other thoughts.
Cons: Nothing yet, I plan to update with another review after I have had it for a year.
Other Thoughts: You need to be careful and make sure your connectors are plugged in firmly and make a good connection, as this thing is a single rail, and will push 130 amps into a short and melt metal, just check out some of the mishaps with bitcoin/litecoin mining rigs... This hasn't happened to me so far luckily.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 1KW of power.
Worked well while it worked.
The universal connectors are ingenious.
Looked pretty cool.
Cons: At about 850-900W from the wall, I had a cap pop on the PSU. Luckily I was there to throw the switch on my power strip before something caught on fire. It burned up my second 6950, and partially fried my mobo; the I/O panel and USB headers no longer work, and the second PCIe slot is dead.
Other Thoughts: The reason I didn't just give it one star is because the company was willing to replace the destroyed components after submitting them a case and documenting everything, however, this proved to be unnecessary, as the manufacturers themselves are willing to replace them. All that's left to do is RMA the unit.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Antec Twelve Hundred V3 Black Steel ATX Full Tower Unbeatable Gaming Case
Pros: This thing is built like a tank. I had a friend use it as a seat a couple of times, and he weighs a little over 200, it didn't even flex.
It is made with high quality steel, and the paint job is immaculate.
There is not a single sharp edge, even when disassembling the drive bays.
The amount of air this thing moves on high is mind boggling, and it's not really that loud at max.
Practically silent with the fans set to low, I think the vapor in the heatpipes on my CPU cooler make more noise.
So much space.
Plenty of room behind the motherboard for cable routing.
The tool-less screws this thing uses are very nice.
Built in filters on the fans.
USB3 ports on the front.
Room for plenty of drives.
Looks completely B.A.
Cons: 6 separate fan connectors are an unnecessary hassle; they should have included a fan power distribution board, like a certain NZXT case.
You can only turn the LEDs off for one fan. Why bother? I mean that fan makes the most difference, but still...
A little time consuming to change the filters, this could have been done better, but it still takes only 15 minutes, and you don't even have to power the system down.
When I bought this case, red LEDs were popular, now blue is the new red...
Other Thoughts: Solid case. I was dissapointed with its successor, the 1900.
Overall this case deserves 10 out of 5 stars.
