Antec Sonata Proto Mid Tower Chassis ReviewPosted on 2010-06-08 13:01:10 by Thomas De Maesschalck
It seems to me Antec has been building cases, well, forever now. Being a user of the original 900 was where I got my feet wet with Antec and until I started here, that was all I had to go on. Well, time moves on and cases got released. I have been graced with quite a few unique and stylish designs over the last year or two. Something I grew to love with most, if not all of the samples I have seen, was the way Antec thought out of the box with the Skeleton series and the air flow that seem synonymous with the Antec name.
From what I know of mid towers, cooling can become an issue fast, especially if you plan to build what I like to refer to as a sleeper. You know, the guy that shows up with the smallest case at a LAN and has the “leetist” gaming hardware inside. Here is to hoping that Antec didn’t take a leap in the wrong direction, offering “silence” in a mid tower PC at the expense of airflow. Offering the ability to house a full motherboard and room for SLI or Crossfire to be installed, I hope it can keep up with the demands asked. Come and have a look with me as I get the camera ready and run through what Antec offers in the Sonata Proto.
