No really, it's awesome. Yes, there are better cases out there, and if you're looking for an uberbad*** case you'll probably have to spend more money. However, the Antec 1200 V3 ranks up in the very top of cooling performance in almost any major case chart, so you do get what you pay for.

Honestly, it actually looks pretty cool, too. The blue case fans will light up a dark room, and you can turn off the big fan's light if it's too much. The case doesn't look like some freakish high-tech movie thing, which I actually like. It's still got more styling than 80% of the cases out there right now.

I've worked with many cases, and although this isn't the easiest case to work with, it's high up there. There's decent cable management room, and since the case is made of steel, you can jam cables into the "dark space" without the side panel bulging out. It's actually fairly roomy inside, too.

The only big problem this case has is the hard drive bay and front fan combos; in order to mount a fan in the front, you HAVE to have a hard drive bay behind it. This eats up space that could be used for a radiator, watercooling tank, or cable storage. It's a pretty obvious design flaw, but a minor one, and it didn't affect my opinion of the case overall.

Here's a comparison of my case temperatures. My old personal case was an Antec 300 with four 120mm fans and one 140mm fan. My new case is (obviously) an Antec 1200, with six 120mm fans, and the big boy 200mm fan.

Setup: ASUS P67 Sabertooth Mobo, i7 2600K @ 4.2GHz under a Corsair H60, GTX470 @ 10% OC.

My old case's temperatures usually looked like this....
Fans: All fans set to max speed.
Idle CPU ranged from 38-42C, averaged 41C.

I love this case! It was easy to assemble and came with plenty of hardware, screws and all of the fans needed. I was disappointed with the shipping quality as it was delivered to me only in the product package and not repackaged for shipping. The product box was destroyed upon receipt of the tower from the carrier, and I was not happy that the hardware box and cables included were not packaged for shipping. The box of hardware was just tossed inside the case and scratched up the inside of the tower during shipping. Big boy 200mm fan on the top has made a rattling sound since the day I fired up my system. I run this system with an

System runs great and was a lot fun building. The blue LED's are awesome and all match eachother well. I would only recommend getting a modular power supply because this case doesn't have the most room in the back panel for cables.

Had no trouble with cable management or attaching my MoBo, power supply, optical drive, SSD, video/audio cards. Super easy to get in and out of. Comes with extra screws. #2 screwdriver bit is all ya' need. Also, has an extra slot for a fan on the side panel. HUGE!

Downsides are there are not enough fan connectors on my MoBo to plug in all the fans with given cables. (more of a MoBo problem, but just a heads up that there are 6 fans, each requiring a connection. I managed to get 5 installed on my ASUS Sabertooth 990X R2.0). Also, the fans are somewhat noisy if in a silent room, but you put your headphones on or turn the t.v. on and its hard to notice. Maybe put some words on the one page of "instructions" provided. It wasn't rocket science to figure out but I am new to building computers so a little instruction goes a long way.

Of course none of these downsides are deal breakers, just things to be aware of.

If you want a big, spacious, blue case then this is the one.

Tons of room for everything. Six fans come stock with 2 optional locations for 120mm fans. The front panel is all USB 3.0, just make sure your motherboard can handle that.

Overall I love the case and many people who see it love the blue LED and the clear side panel. I would buy this again.

The only small frustration is the lack of really good instructions. It took me a while to figure out that they have the 2.5" drive bay on the very bottom of the case and provided some rubber grommets to support your SSD.

The case is big so you can fit whatever you want in it, I'm upgrading from an Antec 300 to this Gorgeous Antec 1200 V3 and I'm glad I did, is everything I expected and more, I love the blue LED lights and from all the cases I've seen (friends and mine), this one has the best airflow cooling system, if you're on the martket for a full tower for your next pc, then I will tell you what I'm telling my friends, JUST BUY IT!!! =)

I upgraded from the 900-2 to this 1200-V3 for my i7 4770K build. Although I can get away with a mid-tower, going with the full-tower is the only way for me henceforth. There is LOTS more breathing room. All components run much cooler with less fan speed than required in my 900-2. With the extra space I don't have to move or unplug components to access the hard drive headers (or any headers for that matter). Access for modifying and cleaning is very convenient. My only complaint...Antec still puts the fan screens in a very inconvenient-to-access (for cleaning) location. Like I did on my 900-2, I've removed the screens and mounted them on the outside of the case drive enclosures. This way I can vacuum and remove dust from the screens without disassembling the damn case. I'm surprised Antec hasn't figured this out, yet. Other than the dust screen cleaning inconvenience, this is an excellent case.
