Antec Launches Skeleton PC Case
World's First Open Air Case Adds Unique Design and Unprecedented Airflow to Any System
Fremont, Calif. - October 13, 2008 - Antec, Inc., the leading global brand of high-performance computer components for the PC upgrade and Do-It-Yourself markets, has launched the Skeleton, the first open air enclosure to the consumer market. The Skeleton's open structure design and flexibility bring a high level of cooling, ease-of-use and stylish appearance to any PC.
Customizable and offering unprecedented levels of cooling, the Skeleton features an open frame and a top mounted, three-speed, 250mm TriCool multi-color LED fan, allowing users to adjust fan speed, as well as case illumination. Specially designed layered trays allow for efficient cable routing that prevents wires from impeding airflow and an additional dedicated 92mm fan cools the hard drives. With a 0.8mm cold rolled steel-reinforced plastic frame and rackmount quality side rails, this enclosure emphasizes durability. The 13''(H) x 14.8''(W) x 16.5''(D) sized enclosure fits Mini ITX, MicroATX and Standard ATX motherboards.
For enhanced flexibility in system integration, the enclosure boasts a layered tray design and four quick release drive bays, including two 5.25'' and two 3.5'' bays as well as four optional 3.5'' side panel-mounting plates. Seven expansion slots contain room for up to three 11'' video cards in SLI configuration, enabling gamers and high-performance enthusiasts to get the most from their high end machines. Convenient front mounted USB 2.0, FireWire and eSATA ports allow for easy multimedia connections. Additionally, there are Audio I/O ports in the front, compatible with AC97' and HDA.
"PC gamers and build your own enthusiasts are always looking for the latest high-performance components, including high usability and unique designs," said Scott Richards, senior vice president for Antec. "The Skeleton is the latest example of the commitment we have to offer usable, affordable products that perfectly balance functionality with a unique and bold appearance. The cooling capacities and top-notch convenience features will help PC users to build a very special system. We're excited to be the first company to launch an open air PC case."
The Skeleton is available now through major retailers, e-tailers and distributors. The case will retail for approximately $189.95 and is backed by Antec's Quality 3-Year Warranty. For additional product information and full technical specifications, please visit http://www.antec.com.
