Which is useless if you have to mount your PSU the wrong way!

Why did they have to copy the parts of the 1200 that suck. The slanted I/O and plastic ribbing are dust collectors, and unless they fixed it, the dust filters are a pain.
The 8 expansion slots are nice, make a good Folding farm case and at least they kept the inside black.
Personally I wish they would make a bigger 300 rather than a smaller 1200...

Personally I prefer the original 900 design. I hate the look of that fan sticking out of the top.

I don't think the style suites it as well as the 1200, maybe just because its smaller and I'm so used to seeing my 1200.

I hope that they name it something other than the 900-2 though, i prefer the exterior styling of the original 900 over this new mid tower 1200. Had they kept the original 900 exterior and than did the interior all black and maybe improved the cable management I'd consider buying my 3rd 900 case.

Although i do want to say that the cable management was not as bad as i thought it was going to be in the 900, but i did use a modular power supplie.
