Antec GX505 Window SC Mid-Tower Chassis
The front of the GX505 is very aggressive looking with all the angled lines, protruding bits, and the mix of textures and materials. At the top, we see a pair of LEDs angled into the plastic, just above a trio or removable bay covers. The lower section has the mesh like what we found in the covers, but this time, it is used as the air intake.
As the front rounds over to the top, we run into the power button, dead center in the top. Behind it is a tray for extra goodies, with connectivity and buttons to either side. On the left, there are USB 3.0 connections with rubber covers, as well as 3.5mm HD Audio jacks, also with rubber covers in them. To the right, we find the reset button, the fan controller switch, and a card reader hole, but the insert was not broken out, nor is one installed.
The top is split into two sections. The front deals with the wiring and connectivity, while the back deals with ventilation. There are angled louvers that blow the air toward the back of the chassis as it exits, but by removing a pair of screws, it comes off for easy access to the fans.
The left side of the chassis is flat to the frame around the edges. As you move in around the window, there is a deep bump-out in the door, keeping the side window slightly away from wiring or taller CPU air coolers.
Moving to the back of the GX505, we do see the pair of grommets in holes above the 120mm exhaust fan location, just to the right of the rear I/O area. Below these, we run into seven break-out expansion slot covers with passive ventilation next to it, leaving the bottom to be filled with a PSU.
The right side of the chassis keeps the same shape and design as the left side offered, just this time there is the lack of a window. The bump-out on this side will aide with returning the panel onto the chassis after wiring is run behind the motherboard tray.
Large chunky plastic feet are used along the edge of the chassis and have small rubber pads applied to give them some grip. At the rear of the chassis is a dust filter, and in the center there appears to be an optional HDD mounting location if the PSU is short enough to allow for it to go there.
