Antec P101 Silent Mid-Tower Chassis
The front bezel of the P101 is thick, and made of plastic. In the center is a door that swings open to the right, and breathes through three vents along the left side of it. On three sides of the door is angular plastic with pointy corners which covers the rest of the chassis frame.
With the door open it is easier to see the three white vents, and we also see the sound absorbing material on the inside of it. Behind the door is a removable 5.25" bay cover with a large, removable dust filter that keeps the airflow from the three white blade fans cleaner inside than without it.
The front I/O panel offers the power and reset buttons to the left, followed by a white power LED and the three position fan speed controller. We then see a pair of 3.5mm HD Audio jacks, and both the pair of USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports are ringed with white LEDs.
The top of the chassis is an expanse of steel with no ventilation, which has been painted black to match the rest of the chassis.
The left side of the P101 is another expanse of black steel. We can see the thick bezel at the front of the chassis, and the feet are chunky at the bottom. Since Silence is the name of the game with this chassis, there is no window, as it would allow more sound than steel backed with sound absorbing material.
Now at the back of the chassis, we see that the side panels are screwed on, but remember, they use balls and sockets at the back, and they do not slide to open. Between the panels, we find the rear I/O next to a 3-pin powered 140mm fan. There are eight expansions slots, and they alternate color to go along with the vents we saw on the front. Lastly, the PSU uses a mounting plate seen at the bottom, which allows the PSU to slide into the chassis rather than fitting it from the right side.
The right side of the chassis is also closed off as you see all of that black steel. It is nearly a mirror of the left side, but we can see the door on the front bezel from this side, and we also see that Antec is in the front foot.
Under the chassis, we find a large dust filter which is removed by sliding out the back of the chassis, and near the front of it, we see some of the screws to remove the HDD cages. As for the feet, they are large, but the rubber pads stuck to them are only half the size of the foot, yet still affords grip to keep the chassis solidly in place.
