There have been a number of new PC enclosures shown off this year at Computex 2013, offering both great looks and innovative features. Antec is also looking to breath some new life into their line-up with several new cases being shown off. This includes the super tower Antec Nineteen Hundred, mid-tower P100, mid-tower NSK4100, and ISK600 mini-ITX case.
The most recent version of the Hundred series is one of the tallest cases Antec has ever made. The black tower with green accents is ready for anything you have with room for up to a 13 inch GPU, 9 expansion slots, four USB 3.0 front panel ports, 13 internal drive bays, three 5.25″ ODD bays, and plenty of room for liquid cooling. The exterior styling is also dramatically different than anything that Antec has put forth in quite some time.
The P100 is a mid-tower sized case with Antec Quiet Computing technologies built in. The case is modeled after the Performance One series with steel construction and the sound dampened side panels. The tool-less 5.25 bays and tool-less removable HDD cage with four drive slots complements the 7 expansion slots well. Antec promises to price the P100 very competitively when released to ensure its high quality style and construction is not overlooked.
The other mid-tower case in the Antec NSK4100. This case is clearly designed to be a budget case, but does not sacrifice quality with its 0.6 SECC steel construction. The NSK4100 has simple design, indirect front ventilation, 7 expansion slots, room for a 11 inch graphics card, 5.25 ODD slots, six 3.5″ drive bays, and one 2.5″ SSD bay. I expect this case to become Antec new standard in their budget cases going forward and should see a lot of deployment in office environments or as a workstation.
Finally we get a little specialized with the ISK600 mini-ITX case. While also a mainly steel construction as are the other new cases, the ISK600 uses thicker metal at 0.8 mm. Featuring brushed aluminum top and side panels, three 3.5″ drive bays, support for an 11″ graphics card, and 2 expansion slots, it may be small, but it sure packs a punch.
I am glad Antec is adding to their product lines and continuing to focus on versatility. This is definitely a far more impressive range than what was shown off at CES 2013 earlier this year. While there are currently no prices to report, you can expect to see all these cases launching sometime in Q4 2013.
