UGG. You are all right and in that case count me and many others out. Do they not realize how hard it is to situate longer graphics cards and wires in a 900?

I built a computer about 6 months ago for a client using the 900. Its gorgeous on the outside and atrocious on the in. Two GTSs barely fit after moving the HDs all around. The 900 would be the go-to case if it were about 4 inches deeper.

/off topic

Is the 1200 any deeper or just taller?

nice, looks like a beefed up 900 with very nice cable manegment. just needs another fan on the front...

@ryanrenolds08 the 900 fits my GTX 260 with room to spare, unless you have a hard drive right behind it i don't see how its a problem

It looks like a mix of the 900 and the CM690


which could potentially be pretty awesome

I actually really like the look of this case. Nice black interior which the 900 doesn't have, very nice cable management, water cooling can easily be installed, and a nice big side fan.
