    Re: World Exclusive! - Antec 1200 (Twelve Hundred)

    Would like to know what sort of price point they are looking at?

    Is that many fans necessarry do you think?

    And are there any after market solutions for the large 200mm fan at the moment?

    Re: World Exclusive! - Antec 1200 (Twelve Hundred)

    The price point is around £120 as per the review (based on the 209$ USD price point)

    As for replacement 200mm they are available although taking a while to come to market - there really isn't anything wrong with the one that is currently fitted, especially as there is three possible fan settings.

    Great review guys.


    One thing bugs me though is that it isnt very deep for a case of its size.

    Cool Re: World Exclusive! - Antec 1200 (Twelve Hundred)

    Been waiting for this one to come out.

    I have the 900 case and Antec appear to have listened to the customers and corrected some of the niggles with the 900 case.

    1. Dust filters fited to the fans ( had to cut up a pair of tights to make some for my 900)

    2. The ability to change the fan speed without opening the case or fitting a seperate fan controller)

    3. Cable managment holes and water cooling holes predone.

    Love my 900 have the fans set of medium and my overclocked Opteron 185 and 8800GTS run very cool

    So this is going on my wish list for that watercooled multiterrabyte gaming monster rig .......

    does this mean the price of 900s will drop?

    You would think so but cases are one of the components that never seem to drop in price.

    Re: World Exclusive! - Antec 1200 (Twelve Hundred)

    been waiting for this for a long time
    Hopefully we can buy it this month like Scott Richards said. One problem I can see is that if it has 2 inches of clearance for a 2900XT what about a 9800GTX

    I have the same thoughts as Azza as it's not been resized horizontally as it has been vertically.

    Why thank you

    It's as deep as it needs to be in all fairness - it can fit all the latest hardware we have currently in the labs without a problem and the airflow is such that a greater depth would only cause an airflow void.

    It's a sensible upgrade from the 900, if anything this is better suited to the new hotter GPU's. Due to the shape of the 900 its better suited to less than totally high end GPU's in all honesty...

    Possible, but the margins in chassis are very small at the best of times and if the 900 is still selling in good numbers then it wouldn't make any sense at all to drop the price.

    The 9800GTX should fit - I am going to double check this for you.

    My 900 is now suffering from 'case envy'

    Damned nice case, you could easily squeeze a double rad in the front along with plenty of drives.

    Re: World Exclusive! - Antec 1200 (Twelve Hundred)

    Im looking at the information and if I am reading it right the 2900XT is 22cm in length and the 9800GTX is approx 5cm longer than that - if that is the case it should fit without issues, although you would lose at least one of the HDD out of the 3 available in the drive module

    It depends how you configure it - if you go for the full unadulterated high speed fan experience its quite irritatingly noisy...
