that must just eat at him...

It does!!! I hate the thing. It's so ugly, and they charge $120 it. It's small, crap for cable management, attracts dust, did I mention it's ugly?

But anyway, that's just my opinion.

I don't think the 900 looks bad. It makes for a fun modding project

Yeah its a nice case, and not as bad as people make it out to be. I found wires easily to manouver around it without having to resort to any kind of drilling.

I wish it did have a dust filter though, but those aren't exactly hard to add (looks at his dust of a computer right now...)

The case you posted is just a bigger version of the Antec 900 which is actually a pretty small case.

Thanks for the comments guys.
I personally think the looks of the 1200 are pretty goood. But I didnt buy this case for looks. I bought this case because of it layout and cooling ability. For looks I like the clean P180's....

My PC is going to be under my desk and its not going to be going to beauty pageants....

I dont know if it has dust filters.. maybe, my thermaltake has them but i never put them in...


I also got this case for $175.00 shipped

reading the reviews seems to indicate that it does have dust filters, washable ones even, and yeah, I actually like how it looks, but I'm partial to blue LEDs in black cases, this case is almost as purty as mine...

for $175 shipped...? definitely a good get, but just hope you don't get one of the "Friday, knock off time" specials, which seem to be quite abundant in the reviews...

Antec Quality Control checker (at 4:45pm): "meh, it's Friday, I don't have time to check all these side panels and I sure as hell ain't staying late, it's time to get drunk, I'll just pass all of 'em and hope none of them have scratches"...
