Case Build & Finished Product
The front of the P120 Crystal changes a bit as you can now see all of the installed components in place. While the area may look full from the main panel, through the front, you get a view of how much open space is truly available in the main chamber.
Here through the main panel opening, the area looks full of hardware. As we saw just a few moments ago, space is quite open and has plenty of air for cooling and moving heat away from components. We used the vertical mount here to simulate how a proper midrange build would be installed. There were no issues with installation, all items went in smoothly, and no problems were observed with any components being put in place.
Here we see the rear I/O area once again, but this time filled with the components. The PSU and everything installed still allows plenty of space for more components depending upon your needs.
Here we have the cable management area of the chassis. Still, this time with all necessary cables bundled up as you can see the PSU is in the top means that far less needs to be run-up to the top for the EPS connectors and can be tucked in front of the PSU for an even easier cable management task. The amount of cable management loops are plentiful, and while Antec includes Velcro straps, we opted for zip ties as it made for a much more compact bundle and management.
The system, when powered off, is subdued and straightforward but evident thanks to the tempered glass main and front panel. The chassis likely would not be the right choice for home theater or office use as the view is very open and, when running, will probably have lighting shining out of it.
Firing up the P120 Crystal, and you get the full effect of whatever lighted components you have installed. Our system is relatively subdued, but with an array of RGB fans, you could make the P120 Crystal whatever you want it to be.
