Me want... only if the exterior would have been like the 900, less curvy... I don't like the front panel of the 1200, but man, that space would be quite useful with all my parts.

here is a thread detailing my water cooling journey... pics at the end...

1200 water cooling... starting...






and just added a single rad on the back...




there is alot of room on the back side of the case. I have alot of wires there and there is no forcing the cover on.



I did not need any extension cables for anything. All though I have a really good PSU with long long cables..... and the question about the space between the motherboard and the back of the case.... I have no idea if you are referring to travelling the cords between the motherboard and the back part of the case. Everything ran through the cut outs and to there desired locations. IS that the answer to the question?

yes I did drill holes... I had to remove the top of the case, desonnect a few wires and drill 4 holes in the top to mount the rad.

forgot to mention....


I have found that the door of the case, being so tall and only have those tiny screws and black buttons holding the plexy on, to be very flimsy. 2 screws have already popped out on me, and I havn't a clue where they went. I have since taped the clear window down to the metal hoping no more will fall off. The screws are soooo tiny, and they can't be holding on by more than a few threads so be careful when messin with the door.

DO NOT IN ANY WAY PUSH OR EVEN TOUCH THE PLEXY GLASS ON THE DOOR AT ANYTIME when installing or removing the door.

cheers

I just ordered a Antec 1200 to replace one of my two Antec 900's. I hope the case is as good as this thread makes it look and sound!

I'm excited
