The Twelve Hundred features an exceptionally robust cooling system, designed to accommodate even the most demanding gaming PCs. This system is composed of a top 200mm TriCool fan, two rear 120mm TriCool fans and three front 120mm fans. All TriCool fans come with 3-speed control, enabling users to optimize their balance of cooling and quiet. Two additional 120mm fan mounts give builders the option to provide cooling to the graphics cards and the CPU. The Twelve Hundred also comes with a water cooling platform that can be used to position a reservoir or a pump. A perforated front panel and a washable air filter help to take in air more efficiently and reduce dust build up. The case also includes an advanced cable management system that allows cables to be tucked out of the way for unrestricted airflow.
The Twelve Hundred is spacious and versatile, with twelve drive bays and seven expansion slots. This provides builders with room for all their high-performance components including dual full-length graphics cards, while a clear side-panel allows users to show off their cutting-edge systems. All fans come with internal blue LED illumination; the light on the top fan can be turned on and off by an easily accessed switch. A convenient top accessory tray gives builders a place to store their favorite gadgets such as media players or digital cameras, while two front-mounted USB ports and eSATA as well as HD audio ports provide convenient access.
"The Nine Hundred is one of our most popular cases, and the Twelve Hundred builds on its design with even more cooling and capacity," said Scott Richards, senior vice president for Antec. "On top of that, we've also added some highly demanded features such as input air filtering, variable speed fans and more. With the Twelve Hundred, we deliver an outstanding case not only for Nine Hundred fans planning an upgrade, but for all gamers and PC builders looking for the best and biggest capacities."
