5 out of 5 eggsAntec 1200 V3

Pros: Great case with lots of fans that moves quite a bit of air over the motherboard/graphics card. Even though the case a Steel/Plastic combo, it seems extremely well built and don't foresee myself ever having to replace this case.

Cons: No cons, I love this case.

Other Thoughts: The only thing that should be made known is that the fan pinouts are the standard 3 pin, but don't come with any type of adapter but doesn't warrant taking an egg off.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Case

Pros: Good construction with plenty of fans and airflow. All the open space and extra drive bays are really nice.

Cons: Nothing major.

Other Thoughts: This is a really good case and if i build another computer i would buy another one. I couldn't give it a perfect score because of one minor thing. The mounting for the 2.5" drive is almost under the power supply. Antec includes a 5.25 to 3.5 adapter but they should really include a 3.5 to 2.5 adapter.

5 out of 5 eggsGood unique case

Pros: Huge case, lots of room! Not to mention, I just love Antecs cases, they are all so sick looking! Good airflow. I especially like how the back goes on! Unlike most cases, it doesn't have a bunch of sliders you have to put in THEN slide the back on. You put the front in, then can close it like a door and screw it in. Makes it SO much easier when you have a ton of cables! Also, REALLY easy for quick weekly cleaning.

Cons: Front (other thoughts)

Other Thoughts: It's not necessarily a bad thing, but the front is quite different than most cases. Instead of the whole panel coming off, the drive bays slide out through the front in squares. Takes time to get to know how it works when migrating hardware over, but nice. The only 'bad' thing is since the bays slide out from the front, you have to disconnect all the HDDs, etc. to fully pull it out and get in there.

5 out of 5 eggsBest case I've had so far

Pros: -Fans are fairly quiet.
-PLENTY of room.
-Great airflow.
-Well placed blue LEDs.

Cons: -HEAVY. Expected this when I bought it though.
-Fans and removable filters are kind of hard to get to to clean.

Other Thoughts: I've had this case for over 3 years now with 2 different builds in it. Couldn't be happier.

5 out of 5 eggsGood tower case, but rebate was refused

Pros: Case has lots of room and price would have been good if they had honored the rebate. I like the large fan on top. Note all fans are blue... Also consider purchasing a fan controller or hub if you want to use all the fans. Looks like five different connections...

Cons: Did not honor the $30 rebate because it was one day late. I purchased this case because of the price with rebate, otherwise would have gotten a different one. :-(

Other Thoughts: Advertised a $30 rebate. I did not have time to assemble the computer components right away. I then got it together and was able to ensure the case and other components were working. Finally submitted and mailed the rebate requirements, but we had terrible snow storm, and mail was not picked up. Took it directly to PO and was postmarked one day late, but antec rebate center refused it as result. There is also no way to contact them via rebate site, so I would suggest do NOT rely on any rebates unless you process and mail everything very quickly. They only give you a 30 day window from purchase (not from when you receive it of course) Depending on shipping options, you may lose a week just waiting for delivery, and not enough time in my opinion unless you act quickly. Yes, it was my fault for not strictly meeting the requirements, but would be nice if they had some tolerance. Rebates are already a huge hassle to process! I always try to make sure components are working before mailing rebates in case a RMA/return is required.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case.

Pros: This is a large case with plenty of space for all components. Purchased this case with a large video card, which had 3 fans on it, and there is still space left between card and hdd cage. This case also features a ridiculous amount of fans, and independent control for each of them.

Cons: Case is very large. keep this in mind when purchasing. will not deduct and egg for it.

Other Thoughts: This case is very large, and while there are a large amount of fans, make sure that you have the needed connectors for them. this case features 6 fans using the 3 pin fan connector. make sure your motherboard has that many connections.

3 out of 5 eggsOld 2008 case design, Better new cases out there.

Pros: +Comes with 5 120mm fans and 1 200mm fan
+Side and interior fan expansions available
+12 drive slots
+Side window
+4 filters, 3 in the front and 1 side
+Pretty good airflow due to the extreme amount of pre-installed fans
+Top storage tray was the perfect spot to hold the various thumb drives and my wired 360 controller
+LED's offer a more subtle lighting, and some LED's can be turned off
+Full steel frame that is incredibly durable and lasting
+Plenty of space behind the motherboard for cable routing to get a cleaner interior

Cons: -3 front fan filters require the removal of 16 thumb screws and side panels, which I eventually stopped screwing in half of them because it was too much of a hassle for cleaning
-Case if completely covered in mesh, which although provides better airflow, is fairly difficult to keep clean
-The top of the case has several indentions for aesthetic reasons, but these indentions get dirty extremly easily and are harder to clean due to the sharp acute angles
-Pre-installed fans all seem fairly lackluster and stocky, getting more premium replacement fans is probably best
-Of the 5 120mm fans that came with the case, 3 of them failed and required replacements.
-The individual front fan controller knobs is fairly difficult to gauge which is the higher and lower setting, requiring you to put your ear next to the fans to see which way is louder (faster)
-The top 200mm fan sticks out in an exhaust mesh, gets dirty fairly easily and hard to clean
-Due to how the front fan and drive bays work, there is no modularity in the drive bays to allow for further airflow, and is rather difficult to install new drives
-Due to the full steel frame, case is extremely heavy, about 40-45lbs with components installed
-Window side panel got slightly bent at some point, making it extremely difficult to put on and take off (not necessarily a con of the case itself, but just something I want to mention)

Other Thoughts: I have owned the original case for around 5 years now, with 2 different builds using it.

The original was a beast back in 2008, but is now showing it's age significantly in the beginning of 2015. The new V3 model's only real differences from the original seem to be USB3.0 and 2.5" SSD bottom mount support (I had the ability to buy a 3.5->2.5 adapter, but chose not to). Currently looking to upgrade from this case finally.

The case itself is very well built, but became extremely difficult to clean & maintain. The fan filters are incredibly useful to keep the dust and hairs out of the case, but due to how long it takes to remove all the screws, it became a task I did NOT want to perform very often- especially after the right window panel bent.

Of it's time in 2008, this case was an absolute beast. But nowadays with the HAFX, Corsairs, NZXT Phantoms, and the silent Fractals coming into light, it's really hard to recommend this case (or several other Antec cases, honestly) over the newer brands coming out.
