The Antec Nine Hundred "gamer case" has just gotten a new sibling: the Twelve Hundred. Both enclosures share a similar design, featuring lots of expansion capacity, ample cooling options (via large LED fans), a case window, and little gadgets to keep enthusiasts happy. The Twelve Hundred builds upon that formula with additional expansion capacity, greater cooling power, as well as new features like fan speed controls and a washable intake air filter.
Hardware mounted inside the Antec Twelve Hundred case will be kept chilly by a 200mm top fan, two 120mm rear fans, and three 120mm front fans, all with three-speed controllers and blue LEDs. As if that somehow weren't enough, Antec has included two additional fan mounts for a total of up to eight fans, and there's a liquid cooling platform that can play host to a reservoir or pump.
The Twelve Hundred also features a whopping 12 drive bays, seven expansion slots, an "advanced cable management system," and an accessory tray at the top for gadgets like portable media players and digital cameras. The top of the case also houses a pair of USB ports, one external Serial ATA port, and a pair of audio ports.
According to Antec, the Twelve Hundred is already available through major retailers (both online and off), and buyers can expect to have to cough up $209.95 for the case alone. Check out our image gallery below for some pictures.
