Very good case

Asher V., Newegg
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: I have had this case for 2 years and I love. Looks good works well and I can put whatever I want in it. Would recommend.
  • Pros: The case is large and provides very good cooling. Very sturdy and well built.
  • Cons: I have only two and they are minor. 1. To clean the fan screens you have to take out the drive bays. This is not a huge deal as I don't have to do this a lot but it would be nice if they were a bit easier to clean 2. The back cable bay could be just a little bigger. Not much but just a bit.

Good case overall, some redundancy.

Lance T., Newegg
7 July 2015
  • Summary: It's a nice case overall, but I think the number of fans is kind of a gimmick at this point. It doesn't seem to be airflow optimized, and I've had better results with fewer fans. This may be CPU specific. It turns out the power button issues are a common problem on this case as well.
  • Pros: Plenty of room in the case, and it looks great. Really like the removable HDD trays and the front-end filters for the 120mm fans.
  • Cons: Although the case is loaded with fans, after some cooling tests I've noticed some redundancy. I watched my GPU/CPU temps as I manipulated the fans and got a few surprising results. I experienced no temperature improvements running both rear fans, and I actually got optimal results with one rear f...

Unexpected reduced quality

Dana G., Newegg
2 July 2015
  • Summary: Maybe they had a bad batch of plastic or something. But they did move from all metal in some parts to a combination of plastic and metal so maybe not. Wow, what a disappointment.
  • Pros: I have always loved Antec products for their styling, price, quality and functionality. The cases that I have purchased in the past have always been whisper quiet while at the same time keeping the interior nice and cool. I have bought several of their cases and as I type this machine has the Ant...
  • Cons: I received my Twelve Hundred yesterday and was shocked at the decline in quality. When I was removing the thumb screws holding the front and rear panels one of the screws crumbled between my thumb and index finger. The screw was composed of both plastic with a metal core. I checked my old Nine hu...

User Review

Michael W., Newegg
30 June 2015
  • Summary: Based on my initial impressions and other user reviews, I get the feeling that I will have this case for several years and multiple builds, making it one of the best values available.
  • Pros: This thing is a tank. Big and heavy, this case feels like it can take a real beating while keeping its contents nice and safe. Only one exception, see cons. Looks cool- Looks aren't everything but its not exactly inconspicuous and its going to be sitting in your office, game room, mancave, bedroo...
  • Cons: A few cheap parts- My first impression wasn't great when, while opening the side panel for the first time out of the box, the plastic part of one of the thumb screws disintegrated into several pieces between my fingers. I hear Antec is good about replacing stuff like this, but for now at least I ...

Great Value for routine builds

Roger L., Newegg
30 June 2015
  • Summary: I decided to use air cooling instead of water cooling on my CPU (i7-4790K), partly because I was concerned about radiator space and partly because I didn’t plan on extreme overclocking which would justify the need.
  • Pros: The case accommodates a high number of bay-mounted devices with lots of combinations of 3.5 and 5.25” sizes. The case comes with 6 (3-pin) fans already installed with nice blue LED’s which work very well in terms of airflow versus noise. There is a clip-on holder for an optional 120mm fan on the ...
  • Cons: While a full tower, the case length is a little shorter than other full towers that I’ve used, which gave much less room to work than I’d like between the motherboard (I bought the MSI Gaming 7) and drive bays. This made cable management between motherboard and drive bays troublesome, and made so...

One COOL Case - Great Expansion Capabilities

Daniel S., Newegg
25 June 2015
  • Summary: I have owned this case since 2009 and overall, I love it. It keeps my components very cool - especially the hard drives. Since I run HDDs 24/7/365, this is very important to their longevity. I have some drives in this case that have been running nearly continuously for 5 YEARS!
  • Pros: This case has GREAT cooling, is open and roomy, and offers plenty of expansion space. You can officially put nine 3-1/2" drives in this case; 3 more IF you use the 5-1/4" bays; and more than that IF you get creative. It would make a great server or file-sharing case (if you have the room for it) ...
  • Cons: Large (but you knew that, right). Drive cages must be loosened for filter cleaning and removed completely for drive insertion / replacement. That being said, if you don't constantly swap drives, this isn't a huge problem. Drives do insert easily and securely once the cages are removed, and the vi...

Love it!

Kyle N., Newegg
4 June 2015
  • Summary: It's a great case. Aside from the setback of the fans, I didn't run into any problems with this case. Only the best from Antec!
  • Pros: This is a very spacious case; plenty of room for activities! It's got fans on fans on fans, so if you're looking to move air, this case is perfect.
  • Cons: The only one that really comes to mind is that the fans are all 3 pin. Back when I bought my Antec 900 for my first rig, it had 3 pin with molex, so you had a choice. This was convenient since PSUs come with molex power; however, since these didn't have that option, I had to buy an adapter to sup...
