Box and Bundle

Again pushing the limits of my light tent, the box for the Twelve Hundred is huge. Expect an ape armed courier to deliver this one.

There’s several pictures on the front and back showing off features as well as some text detailing the same.

Along with the mammoth case itself, you also get a slew of documents. Only a couple are helpful though. There’s one setup manual, a feature leaflet, warranty sheet and a survey. Wonder which of those is going in the bin.

You also get a 3.5” front bay plate to allow the inclusion of mini fan controllers or floppy drives. There’s also a bag of screws, some cable ties and a 5.25” to 3.5” bay converter.

    is it possible to fit a redeon 6990, in some way, like removing a hdd cage?

    1. Whoopty says:

      I imagine yes, but it would be a tight fit. I’m afraid I don’t have the card to hand to be able to test right now though.

    hi, in the cons of this product you say there are not dust filters, but it’s not true.
    They are in the front panel, in front of intake fans, and there’s one in the side panel.

    1. Miguel says:

      I can confirm as well that there are dust filters, in the side panel window and in front panel case for the hard drives.

      Please be a little more careful with reviews because they can be a little misleading and people can miss out a great product as this one.

      1. Whoopty says:

        It is indeed a great product, however my version did not have dust filters. Perhaps it was a pre-release. I’ve tweaked the review to say that the case now comes with filters in certain places.

    The big minus for this case, is the problem with big CPU coolers. If you like me have a 140 mm Noctua CPU cooler, there is no room for a 120 mm fan on the side panel. And with today’s large Videocards that get hot, it’s not ideal without the side fan cooling the videocard. I have the Antec twelve hundred v.1 and before I got the big cooler I loved this case very much. Lot’s of space, good solid case made of aluminium and steel. Sad it’s to small for the modern CPU coolers. Antec should make this case wider, like 25-28 cm wide, then it ould be the best case ever made.

    I have had this case for a couple of years now. I had a smaller Antec case that I sold so I already knew the good quality. I have all my fans set at low and a massive Noctua NH-D15 Premium cpu cooler. Man that this is massive! When I installed the side fan I had to trim one of the corner tabs to make it fit. No big deal. The whole unit runs pretty quiet even though it’s right next to me. I have been contemplating changing to a Corsair liquid cooler. I have something like 5 hard drives with two being SSD’s. Even with the AMD Phenom Black overclocked it still runs cooler than my older system running at normal speeds. My case is the updated version and did come with filters for the front and side. I also installed fans on the back side of the HHD bays.
