The One Hundred case that Antec showed off at CES last week is now available in retail stores. The exterior of the case looks rather uninspiring and the interior has an all-black design, the chassis measures 558mm x 270mm x 555m (H x W x D) and weighs 6.9kg. The One Hundred case is designed for ATX, Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX motherboards and it has room for up to three 5.25" devices, six 3.5" HDDs, one 2.5" SSD and eight PCI expansion cards.
The CPU area has a cut-out to make it easier to swap your cooler and airflow is provided by a 120mm rear TwoCool fan and a 140mm TwoCool top fan. Extra cooling can be provided with two optional 120mm intake fans and one 120mm side fan for the graphics card(s). The One Hundred is equipped with washable air filters and has a top-mounted I/O panel with four USB 2.0 ports and the usual headset/microphone ports.
The MSRP is $79.95 but in Europe it can already be found for just under 50EUR.
In its 25th anniversary year, Antec, Inc., the global leader in high-performance computer components and accessories for the gaming, PC upgrade and Do-It-Yourself markets, today announced the One Hundred, its newest gaming case designed to offer PC gamers and enthusiasts an array of advanced cooling and performance options at an affordable price.
The One Hundred boasts four top-mounted USB 2.0 ports (with audio in/out,) a handy storage tray for added convenience, a sleek painted black interior and perforated front bezel that delivers maximum air intake, and a bottom-mounted power supply that isolates heat and noise. This model is also the first in Antec's gaming case series to include a standard case lock slot for integrated anti-theft protection.
The One Hundred's cooling system utilizes one top 140 mm TwoCool™ fan and one rear 120 mm TwoCool™ 2-speed switch control exhaust fan for flexible control of fan speeds to balance cooling and quiet performance, and a built-in washable air filter for quick and easy cleaning. Its eight expansion slots can accommodate multiple video cards, providing exceptional expandability, while 10 drive bays (six internal 3.5" drive bays, three external 5.25" drive bays and one internal bottom-mounted 2.5" drive bay) lend flexibility for a wide-range of builds.
"PC gamers and enthusiasts have reason to be excited with the release of the new One Hundred gaming case as it packs a host of useful features at an affordable price point," said Scott Richards, senior vice president at Antec. "With the advanced airflow, upgradeability and control options, this latest addition provides the performance capabilities that the gaming community desires."
The One Hundred supports Mini-ITX, microATX and Standard ATX motherboards and is backed by Antec's Quality 3-Year (AQ3) Limited Warranty on parts and labor. The One Hundred is available now for an estimated price of $79.95 through major retailers, e-tailers and distributors.
