Should I upgrade my Antec 1200 for new PC build or keep?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm a fan of good air-flow...I've had the Antec 1200 since it first came out. It's basically loaded with fans (I think 8). However, since I plan to do a new pc build in early May...I'm wondering if it's worth looking at other good newer air-cooling cases. I have no complains about my Antec 1200...it has served me very well. It keep my pc cool and the dust filters are also very nice. Cable management isn't that great..pretty bad actually...but not horrible.

So what do you guys think? Keep my Antec 1200..save money..and keep using it since there is nothing wrong...or should I be looking at some other cases that can provide good airflow..since my case is getting "outdated"? Recommend me a top tier air flow case?

Also, correct me if I am wrong..but isn't the Antec 1200 still considered one of the best airflow cases, even today? Like top 5? or am I totally off.

FYI - I don't like crazy looking cases...I like sleeker more elegant designs (not necessary simple design), though I don't mind a little flash. IMO Cooler Master HAF..is too much flashy..and pretty ugly. However, I dont mind CM Storm Trooper, Corsair 650D/600T, and Rosewill Thor v2...

I'd tip my toe in the proverbial case pool as you can get many nice case's relatively cheaply that are high quality with good airflow. If you were to look for a case how much would you want to invest?

Depends...but I could go up to $250 for the right case..though I'd like to stay closer to $150.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811112159 has a 25% off coupon so roughly 188 + tax, always loved that case. I can also recommend http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139005, with the side panel that comes with that and the addition of http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817996019 you will have alot of fan options in a good looking case.

I meant to link to the 600T for that corsair case.
