Antec Twelve Hundred v3

Cases, Reviews


I like the Twelve Hundred, it’s a serious contender for my gaming rig replacement case. However, if you’re buying this outright, you need to shop around because at £180 it’s not worth the price.

That said, find it at around £130, and with a USB 3.0 front panel, good cable management, strong cooling with low noise output; you certainly get your money’s worth.


  • Looks professional while maintaing some cool styling
  • Fantastic cooling, quiet and powerful
  • USB 3.0
  • SSD mount
  • Great cable management


  • Bit pricey
  • No dust filters
  • No PSU air intake

NB. I’ve been informed by several Twelve Hundred Owners that the case does now include dust filters on the front and side panels. This is a good improvement.
