Antec Torque Mid-Tower Chassis

The front of the Torque is octagonal, and with the angle of tilt used, you also get a good view of the top of the chassis at the same time. Being open-air in design, there are significant gaps between the panels where air can flow freely. Near the top are the front I/O port and the backlit logo. We can also see that one of the top panel screws has not been screwed in all the way.

The front I/O panel offers up a pair of USB 3.0 ports on the left, followed up by the backlit power button. To the right are a pair of HD Audio jacks with no designations, and the Type-C USB 3.1 port concludes things.

We did have to install standoffs and grommets to get the chassis to look like this for the image, but we can see it as it is intended to be viewed. All of the angular shapes, the blending of bright red and gunmetal gray, the slight tint of the glass panel, even the large chunky screws, all come together to make something attractive as well as unique.

At the back of the Torque, there are only two points to address. First, we have the set of seven expansion slots, with covers, and the screws are all exposed on the right side of the bracket. The second thing is the red bracket at the bottom which holds the PSU in place. Note it only orients PSUs fan down, but we are more than okay with that call.

The right side of the Torque looks very much like the left side does, although the motherboard tray is much closer this time, and there is a large section of aluminum not present near the bottom on this side.

Under the chassis, we look at the bottom of the PSU bracket, which has been cut and also folded to form the feet and supporting component for the front and side panels too. Two large openings allow the PSU to obtain air into the fan, and thin rubber pads are used to keep the chassis from moving around. We also noticed this is where the extra screw came from, and while putting it back, we found all three remaining screws to be loose as well.
