Antec 1200 VS antec darkfleet 85 or other

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Hi i just wanted to see what you all think about both these cases. I'm buying one soon and i cant decide which one i want.

The darkfleet is on sale 45$ off. My girlfriend owns one and it seems like a really decent case but i cant decie if the 1200 or a different case altogether would be better for me.

What are your thoughts? i dont really want to pay more than 200$ after tax and shipped, or picked up.

The DF 85 looks pretty nice, its just way to skinny, also there are no holes in the bottom for the PSU to intake air from under the case.

i should also add that im going to start small time modding (maybe groming to hard modding) so if there are and cons involving holes and such, i may be able to fix/modify.

The 1200 also doesnt have the heatsink cutout like the DF, ill probobly change that if i got with the 1200

Get the DF, I've heard that the 1200 has really bad cable management.

Yeah the df cables were easy to manage, it doesnt have a hole right beside the PSU that i would like but that could be fixable with a deremel or somthing.

I dont like the looks of the HAF series the way it is. perhaps with some mod work that would be ok, but i dont want to mod a multihundered dollar case without some experience before hand.

I kinda want a window.

Im leaning to the DF though, only a few things that i would want to change, the biggest of which is a dust filter on the optional side fan.
