ANTEC PCケース TwelveHundred
The fans on this thing are insanely quiet to the point of driving you to paranoia - are they still running? Best go check.. they were each time.
With regards PSU I am using a standard ATX Seasonic 650.. although it works I think the PSU made by Antec for this case (the 850w one) would be much better and I'll be getting one asap. The cables on a standard ATX PSU may not be long enough and in my situation my PSU fan meant I had to have them running in unwanted areas.
Just adding: Today, 12 days after first day of use one of the blue LEDs on the uppermost front fan was noticed to not illuminate, contacted Antec and they want me to jump through certain hoops to prove I'm not making a false claim.. which I guess is part of the world we live in today.
Another niggle is that the power-switch on this clase is located flush and right next to the audio inputs for the headset and mic, in near darkness trying to connect a headset to catch a Skype call it is extremely easy to power off your PC.
Now for the good. I love this case! Everything about this case screams "well engineered." Finally someone listened to the consumer. It is solidly designed and a dream to work in and on. The front fans have their speed controls on the front where they are easy to adjust without opening the case up. The top and rear fan speed controls are on the back and the top fan even has an adjustment for the brightness of the blue LED's. With the side covers off you have unparalleled access to route cables which keeps the inside clutter free and allows for better air flow. Because it is a full ATX case I finally have room for the ridiculously large CPU cooling fan I want to install.
The cable management on the right side of the case allows for all the cables to be hidden away giving a much better view of the interior of the case and components.
One thing to know is that the left side fan does not come with the case. You have to order that separately. The "Antec 120mm Tricool" fan fits right into the slot without screws though. I think I paid $10 for the additional fan. The three fans in front each have a knob which allows you to set the speeds on them independent of each other. Very nice touch.
Case is awesome looking from front to back. The power supply sits on the bottom of the case rather than the top which makes sense since I'm not putting $4000 worth of computer on the floor :)
Over all this is the best case I've had for personal use and reminds me of old school server cases with it's quality and thoughtful design.
Big window to look in and a optional side fan for about 10.00 dollars more.
Enough room for even the power house cards.
Big to hide the wires in back also makes case look clean
Easy to take apart and put together and add components
Make a note where you want to put the case. It is heavy and bulky and sometimes difficult to move if in a confined space. Another make sure your power supply has long cables for unit sits in the bottom as you might be aware.
Other than that enjoy I also recommend the 900 for my freind has one works just as good bit smaller and less bulky and great for those who dont have the space.
-LOTS of room inside, room for even the longest video cards.
-Great cable management. This was only my second computer I built myself, but with this case the wiring job looks IMMENSELY better than my last one. Everything inside is neat and tidy.
-Nice fans. They all have 3-way switches so you can control how loud they are. The 120mm fans move a lot of air. And the 200mm fan on top moves even more and is a great exhaust for all the hot air your computer creates.
-Lots of drive bays
-SATA port on the front so you can connect an external Hard Drive and run it even faster than USB 2.0
-2 USB ports and Audio ports on front.
-Power supply mounts on bottom of case which is better for cooling.
-Mounts included for 2 additional 120mm fans.
The Cons (None of these were big enough to warrant me knocking down the rating):
-The case is plenty tall, but it could be deeper. My GTX 285 video card fit in the case, but if I had a hard drive sitting next to it, it would be a different story.
-The fact that it doesn't come with the 2 fans that it already has mounts for. Just means there were two more things I had to buy. Mounting the additional fan into the bracket next to hard drive cages was a pain. Also, I did not have 4 screws for it! only 2! So part of me is worried about that.
-This is nitpicking, but one of the three case fans on the front must be using different LEDs than the others because it's not exactly the same blue color.
All-in-all a great case that I would recommend to anyone building a new gaming computer.
(Edit: I had to remove a shelf in my desk to fit this baby in! LOL I forgot to measure! Dont forget to measure! I'm very happy with the air flow in this case combined with the HR-02 heatsink on my i5 2600k. Its overclocked to 4.5ghz, 11hours stable on prime95 and average cpu core temp never went above 60c.)
It has plenty room for more than just 3 hard disc and let me tell you, the motherboard can't be moved as in some other cases, but it has room at the behind the mobo in case you don't have a modula PSU, to hide all the cables you aren't using.
Well, It is exactly more than I need, and is the cheapest of its kind.
I truly recommend it in case you don't know any other, I have to be honest, I haven't tried any other but this is my first full tower for gaming purposes and it was a real good choice.
I did have a small issue with two of the fans however, because the led was sticking out into the way of the fan, but it was easily pushed back in. If this doesn't work and you have the same problem you can just shave some of it off with sand paper.
Overall the case is grate. The cable management is very good, and the side panel looks very good. The fans are also relatively silent when running in the slowest setting, and with so many of them I don't think I will ever need to speed them up. If you're thinking about getting a full tower case,which is sterdy, with some eye catching features than this is definitely the case for you.
PS: The case come in it's original box, but fed-ex are carefull about their handling.
This case has front panel filters. Unscrew that 4 thumb screws from each side which will allow you to pull each front section out. The filters are right behind the front grid for cleaning. Now this makes it so much easier because with the fans constantly on, your front panel can collect dust very easily.
Lots of room, and side panel holes for wire management.
Huge top fan, just like Antec 900.
Fan and top light control panel on the back. Nobs on the front panel to control the front fans. No more wired switches hanging everywhere!
Rear has two 120mm fans that are pretty close together. Thinking about Corsair H50 Hydro CPU Cooler? Well think again. I have an Asus Rampage III Extreme with 4 PCIEx16 slots, but my first slot is pretty close to the bottom rear fan. You cannot install the radiator to the top fan, only the bottom fan will allow the Corsair H50 to fit. This will block you from installing a graphics card to the first PCIE slot. I had to put it on the second slot which is only 8x by default.
CPU rear compartment on the case isn't perfect, don't expect to be able to install the CPU heat sink rear attachment like the Corsair cases.
A lot of thumb screwing, each front section requires you to unscrew 4 thumbscrews on each side which means 8. Then you gotta unscrew your HDD, ODD, whatever hardware you want to take out or add in. Not only that, the fan power cable is cable managed in, so u cannot get far from the case with that removed.
Noise do add up when you have all fans on high so you have to experiment on what is acceptable for your noise level comfort.
This unit is heavy. I put this casing behind my desk which only has about 3 feet wide clearance for me to put in. If I have to take it out of that area and open up the casing, it can get exhausting moving it back and forth.
Make sure your power supply has long enough cables, because you may need that extra length to properly wire manage.
I'm being critical because I've been stress testing my system for more than a week. A lot of removing parts, installing them again. Ultimately, there are better cases if you want to spend more, but for this price, this case is wonderful.
love the removable bays and the fan filters are a great touch.
adjustable individual fan speeds on all the fans is to cool
CONS: so quiet it wont keep people away from my system
OTHER THOUGHTS:if you get this case might i suggest using
an ultra X4 Series power supply the ps goes on the bottom
so a modular ps with long connecters is a good idea
getting another for my p5k deluxe wifi system
Antec 1200 case
X4 Series 750W Atx Ps
ASUS RAMPAGE II EXTREME ROG
Intel Core i7 920 Processor
Cooler Master V8
Corsair XMS3 Tri Channel 6GB DDR3 Memory
ATI 4890 1g video card
WD Caviar black 500GB x 2
Samsung Internal Half Height DVD-W Supermulti SATA 22X Lightscribe
This case does not disappoint there, the number of screws is a bit nuts, but thankfully, they are all thumb screws. To have this feature, helps a lot but each drive bay has about 8 screws. Plus you have to take off both panels to get at them all. After working with this build for a bit, I quickly saw how tired I'd get of having to take off both sides over and over. Then to top that off, each HD is on a sled with another 4 screws.
So if you are building for someone else who doesn't ever intend to get into their system, this case is great. Its large, roomy, and the airflow is fantastic. My only other qualm would be the compartment space for hiding cables. Its big but not big enough, I found a lot of cables getting cramped quickly and in the end I had to mount some outside in view. This likely will vary on the cables used.
Also be sure to keep in mind PSU placement and cable lengths. I teamed this up with an Antec Truepower 750W Blue and the main connector and the 12V to motherboard just can't reach around back then back onto the board. In the end they had to just be loose within the case.
Overall, despite the issues, I would still recommend this case. It is built like a tank and the cooling ability is really fantastic. If you have the money and space to fit it, go for it.
You will be hard press to find a poor review on this case and if you do, it's probably biased for some reason.
