Default (PR) Antec Launches the Stylish Twelve Hundred PC Case

Antec today officially introduced its second gaming chassis the Antec Twelve Hundred. The Antec Twelve Hundred is the evolution of the best-selling Nine Hundred, expanding on its award-winning design by adding a top 200mm TriCool blue LED fan (can be turned on/off by an easily accessed switch), two rear 120mm TriCool LED fans and three front 120mm LED fans to help cool even the most demanding computer system. Additionally there're two 120mm side fan mounts that give builders the option to provide cooling for the graphics cards and the CPU if needed. The Twelve Hundred also comes with a water cooling platform that can be used to position a reservoir or a pump. The case also includes an advanced cable management system, a perforated front panel and washable air filters. The internals of the case reveal twelve drive bays, seven expansion slots and enough space for today's large graphics cards. The Twelve Hundred is available now through major retailers, e-tailers, and distributors. The case will retail for approximately $209.95 and is backed by Antec's Quality 3-Year Warranty. For additional product information and full technical specifications, please visit Antec.

It has some good improvements to it, but I much prefer the look of the 900 over this.

Basically they fixed all the problems with the 900 (even painted it black inside), but made it even uglier IMO.

Have to give them credit for fixing a lot of the 900's shortcoming, although the appearance is still love-it-or-hate-it.

Not sure why Hexus is complaining about the top fan mesh letting dust in... that's an exhaust fan.

It does look like Antec has improved many things over the 900. I'm certainly no expert but, I figure it will catch more dust and debris than the 2 Dysons that we have around here.

Asus Z97-A - Intel i7 4790K @ 4.0 GHz - Corsair H80 CPU Cooler- 4x8 GB G.Skill Ares DDR3 2400 - EVGA GTX960 4GB
1x240 GB Mushkin Chronos Enhanced SSD - 1x500 GB Seagate Hybrid Momentus - 1X2 TB Western Digital Green - Pioneer DVR-212D - Antec P182 - Rosewill Photon 850 - 2X24" Acer G246HYL - Windows 7 Pro 64 SP1

The world is your oyster. Shuck away my friend, shuck away!

I always hated that 200mm proprietary fan. Can't even replace it if it fails or gets noisy
