The Haf and the Cosmos S are both great choices.
I'm done with antec cases.. I loved it when I first got it and when I first got into pc building, but I've since outgrown the case.
No more PSU on the bottom, I've dropped screws in there.. then you have to disconnect everything, and take the PSU out and shake the screws out. -I'm a shakey person, even with a slightly magnetized screwdriver.
And yes, you lose the bottom of the case. My 900 is so crammed and I don't see the 1200 helping anything. It'll just be useless space between the bottom of the mobo and the top of the PSU.
It's a little more difficult to hide the power cables that go to the Mobo with the PSU on the bottom.
I do like the fan at the top though, but yes, you do loose that space.
