Conclusion: When I received the case it didn't take me long, I had to remove it from its shipping container. The box art for the Twelve Hundred simply blew me away.

Pros: Attractive looks, Great cooling, Very strong construction, Ample cable management, Size: nice spacious interior
Cons: Weight, Inconvenient HDD caddy removal, lack of options for bottom fan PSUs, Size: It's just huge!
Summary: Overall, Antec has done a fantastic job with taking their Nine Hundred case and improving on it in the Twelve Hundred. The cooling performance is definitely strong and with the ability to customize fans speeds to suit your needs, you can game on with as little noise as possible.
Pros: Timeless good looks for today and tomorrow, Excellent cooling that is customizable to suit your needs, One of the cleanest cases for cable management that I've run across, Interior provides lots of room to work in, Quality construction
Cons: Silent Computing users need not apply, Thumb screws are totally old school. How about some tool free quick release action?

Pros: Looks professional while maintaing some cool styling, Fantastic cooling, quiet and powerful, USB 3.0, SSD mount, Great cable management
Cons: I’ve been informed by several Twelve Hundred Owners that the case does now include dust filters on the front and side panels. This is a good improvement., Bit pricey, No dust filters, No PSU air intake
