Antec Torque Mid-Tower Chassis Review (Page 2)

TweakTown Rating: 78%Manufacturer: Antec



The top of the box, and where you cut the tape to access the chassis, has quite a bit of information. On the red side, we see the Antec name and the newer logo at the top, and near the bottom are mentions of the tempered glass, the aluminum, open airflow design, that parts are CNC cut, and that it includes not just USB 3.0, but also native Type-C USB 3.1. On the gray panel, there is a caution sticker above the chassis image, where the Torque name gets placed.


The shorter side panels also offer up things worth looking over. For instance, here we have an image of the majority of the chassis on the left. To the right is the name of the chassis and the tagline, "A New Angle of Innovation." It is also where the site address is presented.


The next panel to the right of the last one delivers eight versions of the specifications. What you find here is identical to the specifications on site, sans the weight and warranty information.


The next panel to follow delivers an explanation of the innovative design concept, while an exploded image of the chassis allowed Antec to point out the five most important features. While the shipping label blocks most of the company information, we not only can see the pair of smaller chassis shots, we can see the icon for the AQ1 one-year warranty.


The last panel with anything to be seen is what we have here. Antec chose to use a red backdrop with white text and design elements to display the name of the chassis, Torque.


Once the top of the box is open, the first thing seen is this dense foam cover. In it, there is a large cut-out where the glass panels reside while in transit. Below that, we see not only the box of hardware, but there are also eight standoffs that get put on the sides of the chassis to support the tempered glass.


The chassis is resting in dense foam corners, which are attached to a thick cardboard panel covering the right side of the chassis. All told, even though the box looks like it was rolled to my house from California, the chassis inside, as well as all of its components are in perfect condition, although we did find a countersunk screw floating around inside of the box.
