Awesome review! Finally, an acceptable successor to the original Antec 800.

It has 9 slots but some things are not designed well. The position of the fan controller is not correct. Fan controllers should always be in the front. The top is poorly designed because lots of people like to mount a large rad on top. There should have been two 120mm fans or two 140mm fans and holes for both. The HD drive bays should be removable. The price could be a bit lower.

Thanks Robert, the point about mounting a top-radiator is something I didn't mention. This entire series makes it difficult to use a radiator due to the top panel configuration. The Twelve Hundred had lots of room up top, but the Eleven Hundred uses all the extra room for the motherboard. It's hard to get PSU + XL-ATX + top radiator in 20".

I'm gonna guess no by the pictures, but I assume this won't take the CP-850 PSU.

It won't fit the larger PSU. Even if you bend in the tab that supports the top of the PSU, you'll run into the PCI slots.
