Today we're reviewing a series of mid-tower cases at a variety of affordable price points. These four cases are all marketed towards enthusiasts and ship with what were once considered upscale options, including external water cooling mounts, multiple 120mm fans, screwless installation, removable case vents, and board cutouts for easy third-party heatsink installation. That's great news if you're tired of seeing full towers get all the high-end love from case manufacturers, but it makes the prospect of picking a single enclosure a bit daunting. We've rounded up options from Antec, Corsair, Fractal,... Read more...

We’re hearing a lot of talk about mobile at CES, but we’re also seeing some great PC hardware, as well. Antec had some interesting products to show us on both fronts. The first product to catch our eye was the Antec GX700. Marketing Coordinator Justin Chou tells us Antec went out of its way to build an inexpensive, but high-quality chassis for DIYers who want to conserve budget dollars for other components like processors, motherboards, and graphics cards. The GX700 rings in at $59.99 and has good looking internal layout. For example, there’s a reasonable amount of room behind... Read more...
Remember when a 350W power supply would get the job done? In some builds, a modest amount of wattage is all you need, but today's high-end systems demand much, much more. Hence why there are so many beefy power supplies on the market, like Antec's newly minted High Current Pro 1000 Platinum PSU with 80 Plus Platinum certification. It's actually Antec's first kilowatt-class PSU to be 80 Plus Platinum certified, which means you can count on a minimum 89 percent efficiency at 20-100 percent load levels. Antec says it runs as efficiently as 94 percent. "We wanted to give users the best possible feature... Read more...

Antec announced the Antec One enclosure, a gaming case designed to offer solid features and performance for those on a budget--even a small budget, as the street price looks to be around $60.

For cooling, the One can accommodate a total of 5 fans (2 are included) and features a perforated mesh design to optimize front-to-back airflow. It also supports water coolers.

Antec is replacing its High Current Gamer PSU line with the High Current Gamer M series, with the primary difference being that the latter has hybrid modularity. Available in 400W ($89.95), 520W ($99.95), and 620W ($119.95) models, the series of PSUs will be available in “early February” (which is technically now). Antec revealed the cable configuration for the 620W version, so you can extrapolate these specs for the other two. The PSU will have: Fixed cables: 1 x 24(20+4)-pin main connector, 1 x 8(4+4)-pin ATX12V/EPS12V Modular cables: 2 x 8(6+2)-pin PCI-E, 1 x FDD + 3 x Molex, 3 x... Read more...

It’s been a while since our last case roundup--a long while, actually--so it’s high time we did another. We take a look at a slew of (mostly) mid tower cases on the following pages, including the Antec Eleven Hundred, the Corsair Carbide 400R and 500R, the NZXT Source 220, and Thermaltake Chaser MK-I, each designed for a slightly different consumer. Every case in this roundup has strengths, weaknesses, and features that the others may not have, although each also has its own value proposition. If a case is flashy and feature-laden, in general, it will come with a higher price tag as... Read more...

Antec announced that its new Eleven Hundred gaming case will be available in “late November” (which, um, is now) in the U.S. The case is designated as the new flagship in Antec’s gaming series and features a redesigned look and expandability and cooling options. The Eleven Hundred can handle even XL-ATX motherboards and four-way GPU setups, so gamers can trick out those systems without limits. Other features include a 200mm fan and two 120mm fans (on the top, rear, and behind the motherboard, respectively) as well as mounts for seven additional fans; tool-less 5.25- and 3.5-inch...

The homebuilt PC business is still booming, and if you're in the market to buy up parts and construct your own rig, there's hardly a more important piece to the puzzle than the enclosure.

Not everyone gets into the consumer electronics business to make friends, but Antec and Asetek have put their rival instincts aside for the betterment of both companies. Asetek just recently celebrated the shipment of their 500,000 sealed liquid cooler, and now they're going to be issuing yet another new product, but with the help of a company that's fairly well known in the PSU/case/peripheral space. Both Antec and Asetek have jointly announced a new partnership, with the pair working together on the new KÜHLER H2O series. This is slated to be a flagship product, and one that is designed...
