Antec showcases the GX700 at CES 2013, it's an upcoming ATX mid-tower case with a military-design that focuses on a rugged look & feel. Made from steel, this case weighs 6.26kg and measures 500mm x 200mm x 450mm (H x W x D).

The front features four 5.25" drive bays and inside the case is room for seven PCI expansion cards and five 2.5/3.5" SSD/HDDs. The case supports Mini-ITX, Micro-ATX and ATX sized motherboards and has room for graphics cards of up to 293mm long and CPU coolers with a height of up to 172mm.

Cooling is provided by two 120mm top fans and a 120mm rear fan. Two 120mm front intake fans plus a 120mm side fan are optional, and there's also room for a 240mm watercooling radiator.

The case provides the usual cut-outs for cable management and easy CPU cooler swapping, and offers tool-free installation options. The front, which is made almost entirely from steel, features an I/O panel with two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports, as well as a three-speed fan controller that uses a jet fighter-like switch.

The MSRP of the Antec GX700 is $59.
