Twelve Hundred owners wisdom please

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've been eying this case for a while now and can get my hand on one for a reasonable price but there are a few unresolved questions I have:

1. This has six fans including the 200mm. I see that it has controllers in place for speed but how is each fan powered? Is there a separate molex for every single fan?

2. Anyone experience loose or rattling parts after some usage and/or transportation of their system?

3. Is there sufficient room to mount a set of cathodes on the upper and lower (roof and floor) without interfering with anything? Also, is the window large enough that the cathode itself can be seen?

4. Anyone have any chipping of the interior powdercoating?

1. Yes molex for each fan, but the plug has a female and male connector so you can connect all of your fan molex's together and power them all by one molex.

2. I have tooken my case to a friends house for a LAN party and nothing has changed in anyway, no sound rattleing or anything. My windowed side panel rattled a little when i first recieved it in the top right part, i just put some electrical tape on the inner part as anti vibration material hasn't bothered me since.

3. Yes and no, i have one mounted on the top very discretely and didn't really have to do any real modding. I had to push about 1" of the cathode at the top so it would fit. I can get a pic if you want. Yes window is big enough to see inside well.

4. Very minor chipping around edge of case but isn't really noticable as long as you don't hit it hard and be careful you shouldn't have to worry about that.

What he said, I have a 12" cathode in the bottom and the front on the HDD cages behind the lip where the 5.25 bays get fastened to. It looks great. There is plenty of room on the same lip between it and the side panel for inverters.
