I always max out my fans. Cooler hardware = longer lasting hardware. I could care less how loud it is, the music is always louder. Though I don't own a 1200. And I don't know what hardware you have placed where, So I can't exactly suggest a flow style or particular setup. Post a picture with the side off so we can see what you're working with.

Ugh right now I can't, I mean it's just too much of a hassle to move my desk and pop off the side to take a picture of this beast, I mean I could take it with the side on but that don't help at all....
My stupid cathodes are falling off from the cheap stuff they gave to stick it on, so when I have to fix them up again I'll post some pics....
Besides I'm not running any of the monstrous beasts you guys have, and I'm not really gaming much either
I promise to take pics soon though

Yeah especially when I overclock I'm sure to keep everything on max, I'm even adding a 120mm fan.

Also, this thing is air conditioning my house when its idle
