Case Build & Finished Product




With no bays to populate and the fact that the bezel is a solid expanse of aluminum, there is no way to change the looks of it from beginning to end. We do like cases such as this, where whatever you do in your build, the chassis aesthetics are never compromised.





Using our typical gear to proceed with the build, it does show us quite a bit about the room inside. At the front, you could easily install a thin radiator or an AIO, but push/pull fans there can only be allowed if you use a shorter video card. The same can be said for the top of the chassis as well. However, in the back of the chassis, we found plenty of room for a thick radiator as well as a push/pull fan setup. Our SSD slid right into the lower rack, and the PSU slid right in and still has plenty of room for the wiring in front of it.




The back of the chassis offered us no issues to speak of. The dust shield snapped right into place, our video card is well supported and slid in as needed, and using four screws provided, the PSU, supported by the rails, secures tightly to the back of the chassis.




Our wire management may not be the best, but it does show that there is plenty of room for thicker PSU leads, and the cut-out at the bottom allows all of our wiring to pass from the top to the bottom with ease. While there is not a lot of extra front I/O cabling to wire cleanly to the side, we were able to make all the connections with just a bit of slack left in the lines.




While we would have liked to have a view of the hardware inside with the glass side panel option, we feel that the all-aluminum version offers a better, and higher-end feel when completed. We are a sucker for brushed aluminum or aluminum cases in general, and the Antec S10 chassis covers this in mass quantity, making us happy campers with the final look of this chassis.




Once we powered the chassis, we could not hear the chassis fans from any angle, even connected to the hub, with 12V sent to them. Only at the back of the chassis could we hear anything, and that is due to the noise of the AIO we have hanging in the exhaust location there. The only thing we found that will notify you from the outside that the system is powered was the blue LED above and to the right of the power button.
