Some differences between the DF-85 & Antec 1200
-DF has a backplate cutout
-DF has a USB 3.0 port
-DF can accommodate longershorter graphic cards
-DF has a hot swap 2.5" bay up top
-DF uses two 140mm fans for top exhaust, instead of a single 200mm.

I'm actually ordering a 980x, H70 and a crapton of new components this weekend when I get paid to build a new monster system.
I've been considering this case really hard, seen a lot of reviews. I was kind of taken in by the rival coolermaster cases but I'm not a fan of the bare metal interior tbh, I'm quite liking the black internals on Antec's recent cases.
I've got a 900 right now, and I'm gonna need a bigger case for the next build with what I have planned. I'm torn between the 1200 and this.
Are you happy with the DF-85? How's it cooling, and how easy was the H70's deep radiator to fit to the back panel, considering the two fans are really close together on the rear of the 85? Does the size of it not interfere with the other fan of the two?
A little review of the case from someone on a forum I fully trust, and know that the users know their stuff would be much appreciated

I cant really answer your H70 question as I have an H50 but I dont see a reason it would not fit and I doubt you would run into problems hitting the other fan (i dident). Overall this is a great case though the only problem I had with it is that the cutout on the motherboard tray dident line up with my V8 or H50 so I had to take out the mobo (not a huge problem just an inconvenience) and I actually like the little flip things that cover the drive bays as i dont use mine that often.
I hope that helped! Feel free to ask more questions too
