Default Antec 1200....HOTNESS

AnandTech Gallery: The New Antec Twelve Hundred

Its like someone figured out that the 900 would be super great if it was bigger. Methinks i founds a new case.

Very good, but the top needs some serious redesigning.

It looks like a mutt between the Thermaltake Armor series and the Antec 900.... not so sure I like it.

I like it now that its a full tower looks nice, although not so much on the top.

Meh, i could really care less about how the outside of a case looks since its under my desk. I wanted a full tower but settled on the 900 due to it being an awesome air cooling setup. Its just a little too cramped when trying to wire up everything, especially with SLI.

I could see that being an issue. I didnt really have any issues with wiring in my 900.

Cable ties, cable tie mounts are your friends.

As lond as the top is exhaust, it would be a great cooling setup. Huge, bulky, industrial... nice.
