The Antec 1200 looks so much better than the Antec 900. And its much bigger.

I love my 1200 too but I really wish the blue LED lights had on / off switches for ALL of them (not just the big 'un). I don't leave my PC on at night on much so it's not a real problem but they can be bright and mildly distracting when I'm trying to watch a movie.

i had a antec 900 and a asus p5q motherboard
the wiring in the antec 900 was VERY difficult
the power supply was mounted at the bottom of the case
and in order for the 24 pin and 8 pin motherboard power lines to be plugg in they HAVE to go on top of the video cards, to reach the top of the mother board where those power inputs lies.
so the reason i wish to switch to the antec 1200 is for this very reason
seems like the antec 1200 has better wiring compared to the antec 900

frosty
does the back of the antec 1200 case behind the motherboard try have more room than the antec 900?
i found that with antec 900, it was very difficult since the back of the motherboard had so little room that i couldnt even fit a 4 pin molex connecter there.
Since the antec 1200 seems skinnier, would that problem be exacerbated or did antec manage to overcome this problem?

Also
since the antec 1200 is taller than the antec 900 by quite alot
i wonder if its too tall.
Would the 24 pin motherboard power connecter be long enough to go into the back of the motherboard try from a bottom hole, out from a top hole, and still manage to reach the 24 pin power input?
this is very important for me since having two fat power lines going over the Video cards looks very ugly

thanks
