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

2 out of 5 eggs Poor Paint and Hard to Clean 07/07/2014

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

Pros: Well, its big, and had decent cooling.

Cons: Ok, time to start nit picking. The paint job is absolutely atrocious. It has tons of dust particles under the paint, causing it to bubble. I am surprised I haven't seen another post on this. However, past the paint job as that really doesn't matter. The case itself is roomy enough to put multiple radiators, however the fan configurations (Yes the 2x120's that should take a 240 radiator but they put a HALF INCH GAP in between the fans so its impossible to mount properly...). Now on to the cleaning process. You need to remove 24 Thumb screws to "Clean" the mesh screens in the front (Yeah...), which is extremely annoying to have to do every 2-3 weeks to stay optimal. One of the fans blew out within the first 2 weeks, so i'm not too hopeful with the rest of them. All in all, I should have bought a different case to put my components in.

Other Thoughts: I do not recommend this case to anyone using liquid cooling of any sort. The radiator mounting configurations will not work. The fans that come with this case are prone to going out. You will regret your purchase. I livestream often, and I can't have mechanical breakdowns because of inadequate cooling or parts, so I will be replacing this case with a much better one. Remember, you get what you pay for, and this one is CHEAPPPP.

Intel Core i7-4960X Ivy Bridge-E 6-Core 3.6GHz (Turbo 4GHz) LGA 2011 130W BX80633i74960X Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I do extensive live-streaming and video rendering, and intense gaming and this processor is able to do all three at the same time. It is extremely snappy, does not run hot in the least bit, most of the time my temps are in the low 80Fº mark with the Corsair H100i. Would buy again 10/10

Cons: None, this thing is a beast and was a breeze to setup.

Other Thoughts: Love the L3 cache, 15 MBs is a beast.

AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8350FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I have went from a FX-6100 Six-Core to this FX-8350, and I am pleased. I had the FX-6100 Overclocked to 4.0Ghz stable, and it was getting some frame latency issues and stuttering, and seemed to be capping the capability of my gaming and livestreaming. After swapping to this 8 Core, there is an extremely apparent difference in between the two, as this one runs so much smoother, however a little hotter. I am using liquid cooling with an H80 (largest my mid size case would allow) and sitting at around 94 Fº while gaming, while streaming I sit around 110 Fº. Apart from the heat and the fact its AMD and not Intel, this is a very decent processor.

Cons: This is still not an Intel replacement, but I knew that when I upgraded. It is a quick processor, and if you aren't gonna spend 1050 bucks on a 4960x, I do recommend this.

Other Thoughts: All in all, it is a decent processor and suits my needs until I can give this computer to my wife in 2 weeks.
