I will go ahead like I always do and express my distaste for the HDD noise I experienced with this case. I returned it because I could hear my HDD over all my fans on high. I am considering buying it again because NewEgg has a combo deal of the 1200 and Velociraptor for $70 off.

I've asked this numerous times, but has anyone had any issue with noisy HDDs in this case? When I started Vista the HDDs went completely nuts and were making all kinds of noise. In my Antec P182, however, I cannot hear them because of the rubber isolation mounting system.

As soon as NewEgg credits my account back for the Antec 1200, I think I'm going to order another one and a Velociraptor.

It's not problem with HDDs but problem of hard HDD mounting whose effect is strengthened by direct noise escape paths everywhere.
P182 is very good example about case with features which make case quiet while 1200 is example of case whose every design solution is "noisy".

You're the only person I've ever heard of having that problem. My HDD's are completely silent and I can't hear a thing, so the problem you have is almost 100% unique. I could understand your HDD's making weird noises in a tool-less case but not with a case that you screw your HDD's into. The whole purpose for doing that the last time I checked is to reduce vibration which thus reduces the noise.

I wish you the best of luck with your problem because I don't think anyone on here will be able to help you solve such a bizarre issue. But I definitely wouldn't give up on the case just yet

My case is completely quiet so I have no clue what you're talking about with this "noisy" business

I'll go first I guess lol. My recent swap from the 900 to the 1200, never been happier. Please note: Yes I know it needs wire help, will be doing that this weekend and post pics then, this was a "Get it running and tested" setup lol.

Here are the pics I took when I had mine. I took them to compare to my Antec P182.

I can't hear my HDD either, not over a 4870 at 70% fan speed at least lol. Although the whole damn thing is getting drowned on Friday

I'm thinking that I should turn this into the Antec Case Owners Thread, that way we can broaden the discussion among various other things besides just the 1200. Antec has plenty of other fine cases to be discussed so we might as well put them all in one thread. What do you guys think?
