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.Read more ›

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.
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.
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.
