The bottom panel, which is also identical to the bottom panel of the L-600, features two removable air filters, one for the power supply fan and one for the air intake available below the hard disk drive cage.

In Figure 10, you can see the rear panel of the L-1200. Here there is one important difference between the L-1200 and the L-600: while the L-600 uses an 80 mm fan on its rear panel, the L-1200 comes with a 120 mm fan. A minor difference is that the L-600 comes with five slot covers that need to be broken and tossed away to allow the use of the corresponding slot, while on the L-1200 all slot covers are reusable. The rest, however, is identical.

The two blue cables are connected to the USB 3.0 ports, and must be installed on the USB 3.0 ports available on the rear panel of the motherboard. The power supply is installed at the bottom of the case, and the rear panel and the interior of the case are painted black. The L-1200 has seven expansion slots, but the slot covers aren’t vented. The case also features a tab for installing a pad lock or a warranty seal to prevent unauthorized people from opening the case.
