Will my case be compatible with this motherboard?

Here is my case (antec 12 hundred) - http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0288150

Here is my mobo (Asus P6X58D Premium) - http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0326238

Are there any other factors that determine compatability between a case and motherboard other than the form factor? Also, where would the 6 case fans connect to?

  1. Hi..The mobo sure fits in the case perfectly, both stick to the ATX standard. But I have to ask you do you intend to have SLI or crossfire setup? If yes, I may recommend something else to you.
    The 6 fans in the antec case connect directly to the PSU (power supply unit) and since they come with a knob or switch to control the rpm, you can optimize airflow/ noise to your liking and you won't need to connect them to the Mobo, .

    Yes... The motherboard will fit into the Antec 1200 (Great case & motherboard selection :D ).

    Outside of the form factor, as you mentioned, you need to look at expansion slots on the case and take into account your video card size & or SLI/Crossfire setup plans in the total picture of case/motherboard compatiblity.

    I have all my case fans plugged into my molex connectors on my power supply. Also, I would look at getting an 8pin ATX extension so you can route the cable behind your motherboard.

    edit: Note to myself... Remember to refresh page you left open for a while before posting to make sure the same answer hasn't already been given :lol:
