Blue-lit Spacious Comp Mansion

Sandra V., Newegg
7 August 2014
  • Summary: Though I had experience with repairing previous machines and gaming consoles, this was my first build. I found this case to be an amazing case, both as a beginner and in general due to its spacious interior and amazing amount of ventilation. I personally love it, and barring having a size/space issue, I would most definitely recommend it for anyone.
  • Pros: This case is an excellent choice for builders, but most especially those who need more room to work due to inexperience or perhaps arthritis, etc.. Access, installation, and maintenance is a breeze,as the triple-drive and front fan bays are easily accessed from both sides, so this gives you expanded access when mounting the drives, etc., as well as changing/cleaning the fans themselves. The case comes with a slew of blue LED fans that provide a luxurious amount of ven...
  • Cons: The only potential negative I could recognize in this case was that the same size that allowed the wonderful cozy inside also made for a monster case dimensionally. I personally do not mind this, and I actually call my comp 'the beast' because of it, but for someone looking for something slimline or easy to move around a lot, this might not be your best choice.

User Review

Thomas M., Newegg
23 July 2014
  • Summary: This is an EXCELLENT case for the cost. It's not my favorite case I've ever had a computer, and I've been building computers for about 12 years now. I could not be happier with this case.
  • Pros: Size, air flow, front panel ports, wire management system. I could go on. It's a phenomenal case for the price.
  • Cons: Heavy. This case, with everything in it, weighs almost 40 pounds.

Best Full Sized Case I've Owned

Luke S., Newegg
20 July 2014
  • Summary: Definitely worth the money. Highly recommended. The fans that come with the case are all blue lit with the exception of the rear exhaust fans. They arent that loud at all. But I would recommend buying some 3 pin Y split fan power cables since there are 6 fans on the case that need 3 pin power connections.
  • Pros: Tons of room and not too expensive for a full size. The 200mm fan on top really helps pull air from the top of the case. Lots of room between the mounting plate and the back case panel means its easy to run all your cabling behind the plate to keep things neat.
  • Cons: Your mother board needs 2 USB 3.0 connectors if you want to use all three 3.0 ports on the front of the case. Otherwise only the middle and the one on the right work. Not a big deal but there is no USB 2.0 sub connector so its a mild annoyance at the worst.

A huge case for a new Beast

Wolfgang S., Newegg
6 July 2014
  • Summary: I use now two of those cases and would buy it again for any next PC. My last case came with the top cover totally broken from the case despite the packaging was without damage. The design is not solid enough for the top cover just a few simple plastic brackets that were all broken.
  • Pros: - space and design
  • Cons: none

Favorite computer case

Anonymous, Newegg
25 June 2014
  • Pros: Can't say enough about this case, it's quite literally my "dream case" - first time I built my own PC 20 years ago, I dreamt of a tall, white tower case. Went to the Computer Show & Sale in my area and there it was, my first Antec. I've had them ever since - just something about all that room for wiring, fans, coolers, and nothing gets in the way (save for a random side fan).
  • Cons: Not enough fans. :p (tongue in cheek statement) Granted, the side fan can be obstructed by a large cooler, which is moot point when you've got 7+ fans running.

Nice sturdy case

Roger H., Newegg
6 June 2014
  • Summary: As I commented in cons, I'd like to see it easier to move the drive caddies forward to clean the filters, but this is one whale of a roomy and sturdy case with a well thought out layout. Cables can be run behind the back plane which helps to keep the "innards" neat!
  • Pros: I've had two of these for over a year and was the first one I thought of when doing a new build. Case is sturdy, well finished and the drive caddies are very handy. Yes it's heavy which I like. Front ports are in a good location. Drive caddy filters keep the inside relatively clean. Maybe once every year or two it'd be a good idea to clean the inside.
  • Cons: Air filters require removing side panels that are held with thumb screws so the caddy can be pulled forward about a 1/4 inch to access the filters. Not a real problem, but I'd like cleaning the filters to be easier. (We have 3 cats)

doesn't dissapoint

Brandon B., Newegg
3 June 2014
  • Pros: I bought this after reading the amazing reviews........it lives up to it's legacy. It has plenty of room, looks great with the lights, clear plastic and cables hidden and tons of cooling. I bought a huge gpu and it just fit right in.
  • Cons: The con to me is the filters can clog pretty fast. My temps hit 70C clogged and 40C unclogged on a i7 cpu. You have to either haul this heavy thing off to air blast it or take out screws to get to the filters. They could have made the filters easier to get to.

Unbeatable.

Robert H., Newegg
20 May 2014
  • Summary: So. Much. Room.
  • Pros: -Very attractive. -Has room for my enormous bear-like hands. -Thumb screws for both side panels and drive cages, which pop right out the front of the case after removal of four thumb screws each. -Cable management is excellent. -Blue LEDs are sexy. -Room for every dang thing a reasonably-minded human being would ever want to cram into a PC case. -Actually does a great job of keeping dust to a minimum. I--being the lazy git I am--went two years of running a gaming rig ...
  • Cons: -Heavy and unwieldy. And I mean HEAVY. Moving this thing *without* all the hardware inside is like moving a washing machine. Once she's fully loaded, well...hope you know someone with a forklift. -The big boy fan on top *will* malfunction after a month or two. -The 3.5" drive cages are horrible in that they require special screws that are almost an inch long.

Amazing Case!

Anonymous, Newegg
13 May 2014
  • Summary: The case is simply great! The only real issue I had was I had to buy 2 PWM fan splitters to hook up all six fans but that's my own fault for not doing the research on my mobo.
  • Pros: -Six fans for awesome air cooling -Plenty of room for expansion -Adjustable fan speed knobs/switches
  • Cons: -Heavy

Antec Twelve Hundred V3 Black Steel ATX Full Tower Unbeatable Gaming Case

Rosario M., Newegg
4 May 2014
  • Summary: Antec, if you are reading this review, please do not stop making this case. Alternatively, if you want to produce one the same but with 13 external 5.25" drive bays with NO METAL tabs I would (and I assume others) appreciated it. The 13th will allow an internal DVD to be installed which sometimes comes in handy when external USB ones don't work.
  • Pros: For my projects, recently I have been looking for a case not to big (in length, I use a different case that is 24" deep for larger SSI EEB motherboards) but that had a lot of 5.25" external drive bays. This case has 12 external accessible 5.25" hard drive bays (when you remove to 2 internal drive cages). I use iStar USABPN-DE350SS-BLACK 3x5.25" to 5x3.5" SAS/SATA 6.0 Gb/s Trayless Hot-Swap Cage (which Newegg sells), and with this case I can fit 4 of them. I did have t...
  • Cons: None, yet.
