MODULARY

The Extreme 1200R is uses the same OEM as the SX1000R. SilverStone have updated the cables and changed to a fluid dynamic bearing fan.

This is welcome change and should alleviate the fan motor noise experienced with the dual ball bearing fan in the SX1000/1000R units. The Extreme 1200R should be quiet, if their marketing slide is accurate. Check back soon for full review.
