So very wrong. A1200's can't hope to match it with A4000's if both are maxxed out in towered systems (unless the A1200 has a Micronik Z3 board to accept a 604 board, but the Micronik boards suffer from hardware conflicts galore like Retroman said). I've towered both an A4000 and an A1200. I was very successful with the A4000, but the A1200 was just an unstable mess with the Micronik Z3 board and only a few cards attached.
