Antec Torque Mid-Tower Chassis Review

Inside the Torque




On the right side of the front, gray panel, the bottom screw needs to be removed for it to come off, by sliding off of the remaining three screws. With the cover out of the way, we find three fan locations, which can also hold a 120mm, 240mm or 360mm radiator.





The top of the chassis, under the cover removed by removing the four screws holding it in place, looks much different than the front and has more structure to the panel. We can again use up to three 120mm fan or radiators, but we do wish some 140mm fan/radiator mounting options were found.




Unscrewing four screws allowed the glass to be removed, and we can see a cover plate at the front, as well as a second cover plate, both of which need to be removed to gain full access inside.




With the pair of covers out of the way, we can now see the motherboard tray in its entirety, where eight of the nine standoffs are installed. There is a large hole to access cooler backplates, and five other cutouts to help with the wire management.




Below the motherboard tray is a vast open area to house a PSU in. With dense foam on the bottom of the chassis to isolate the PSU at the back, the front is wide open for longer power supplies, and any wires that may need bundling.




After removing the glass, there is still one more panel that needs removing. At the front, the gray panel can be removed as well, which allows full access to mounting the storage drives.




The drives are intended to be mounted to this side of the motherboard tray by sending screws through the other side. The cutouts are then used for SATA power and data cable connectivity, where the HDD is at the top and the SSD at the bottom. There are extra holes that can be used for water cooling bits or used to tie wires back as well.




The last things inside of the chassis that we did not cover, are these very long front panel leads. There is the HD Audio cable at the left and the USB 3.0 connection below it. Then, we run into the Type-C USB 3.1 connection, before we see the last of it, the pair of power LED and Power Switch connections.
