Well I would recommend the one in my sig, CoolerMaster HAF932, but out of the two you gave, the 1200 looks best.

How high you can overclock it to depends on how good your CPU cooler is, if it's stock you can probably only increase it about 10% maybe, if it's a good aftermarket cooler then depending on just how good it is, you could push it to 3.5, maybe.

Yarp, it's a beauty ^_^ There's also the HAS932 which is exactly the same but has an in-built LCD screen+fan controller, but that's a bit pricy :P

Look at a few reviews online, and look at the benchmarks. It beats the Antec 1200 in pretty much every review
