I've just recently was looking for a new case.... and my explorations end up with CoolerMaster 690 II Advance..... DarkFleet is very limited for modding, also I don't like this CD-rom bays... not handy... but it's me
1200 is much better and specially if it's black interior in side

The Antec 1200 has good cable managment IMO.

Mine came with a HUGE hold cutout for access to the CPU backplate



i cut a few holes on the back of the hard drive cage to route some wires and that is all.

That was the cover that come on the ram slots out of the box.

NewEgg was late shipping my ram so i finished the build and sat for 3 days waiting on my Ram. lol

at least ram is easy to install after everything else

edit: just saw that it has a cpu cut out, is there any way that i would be able to garuntee getting that one and not the one that has no cut out that ive seen everywhere?

i would mod it, but i would rather not have to.

I would go with the Antec 1200. Purely because I do not like the look of the DF series - looks very plasticky. Just my opinion on that front.

BUT I did own an Antec 1200 and the case was a lot of fun to mod. You can cut a custom side window, cut a hole for the cpu cooler mount and of course you can do a reverse hard drive cage mod that is just pure awesome-ness as then every single hd cable will be invisible

Case in point:

pardon that "my rig rocks" moniker in the pic - was for a comp.

And as you can clearly see - cable management is CAKE is this case when done right
