    Who decided that blue LED's were the coolest thing on the planet, i'm getting tired of everything I buy having ultrabrights in them, had to cover my brand new upscaling HDMI dvd player with bluetac as it was too distracting while watching movies - what a world!

    I agree... chill on the colored lighting. Unless you could get some lava lamp action in your case so I could pseudo-remember college.

    Blue is neither too bold nor too greyed, that's why its considered as the coolest led color, i think. And i like blue, but i'd prefer bold red mixed with white leds.
    As for the case, it's decent for gamers, great price for great quality. But, small size for VGA slot. It does not seem to have enough space for high-end SLI or X-Fire configurations.

    Nice case, too bad they burn out power supplys, because the power supply mounts at the bottom... It can't breath and gets hot..

    Not that this is a scientific illustration, but I've used a bottom power supply mount in my main box for a couple of years now without issue. Now, that would depend various factors, like the quality of the power supply and maintenance. I have kids and pets running amok and don't have the time to disassemble things every month and do a deep clean as I'd like, so that and adding in the case sits on a carpeted floor, I've done well so far.

    As for power supplies burning out, this is the first I've heard of this happening. I don't know how prevelent it is, but I haven't heard complaints on larger forums where I lurk from time to time. I think it's a reasonable concern, but then again, the cases with the bottom mount PSU also have feet so the case would allow for some airflow.

    This is VERY True BUT, MOST people just use the PSU that comes with the case and it is NOT a Well know Brand Name ...I have 2 of those cases here with generic PSU's that burned up..

    As the Antec Twelve Hundred doesn't come with a PSU I'd hope that the they'd have the sense to buy a decent PSU for it. I'd probably be wrong though :)
