i have the 1200. great case...very huge/heavy. Definitely does its job aka airflow.

As for airflow and cable management. I would move the bottom fan on the bottom to the top so you have the 3 fans stacked ontop of eachother from the top down. And put ur cd/dvd drive on the bottom. Makes it easier for cable management, cause whatever cables u don't need, you can tuck under the dvd/cd drive.

Cable management ingeneral is pretty easy, theres tones of room behind the mobo tray, so you should be good.

Great case btw! definitely solid and does its job perfectly!! Enjoy!

best case i have ever owned man, love the cable management, though the HDD cages are a pain to take out every week to clean the fan filiters, but its not so bad if you want to keep your pc dust free
