Antec has a variety of different product lines but there are two main ones. For enthusiastic users the Performance One series cases that are mainly designed for quiet computing and the Gaming Case range, including the 300, 900 and 1200 models. Earlier we reviewed the P180 Mini from the P1-family and now two cases from the range of Gaming Cases have arrived to our review. The cases this time are the 300 and the 1200, both of which follow the theme set by the earlier 900 model.

Both cases follow closely Antec's dark-colored theme on the packages. Already from the boxes and the model numbers one can say that the 300 is a smaller case and the 1200 is a large mid-tower case. The boxes have all the main features printed on them and again buyers don't have to guess what they're about to get.

In size comparison the difference is very clear, the twelve hundred is over 10 centimeters higher and another 5 centimeters deeper than the three hundred. Other than that the cases remind each other with the matte black paint and side- and top fan holes.
