Antec Skeleton open-frame PC case

Antec has launched the Skeleton, an open-frame PC case it claims is the first to be available to consumers. The open structure of the case is designed to maximise airflow and cooling while also offering a high level of flexibility.

The 0.8mm steel-reinforced plastic frame has rackmount side rails, specially designed layered trays for neat cabling and a top-mounted 250mm multi-colour LED fan. This has three speed settings as well as a separate 92mm fan to cool the hard drive.

Measuring 325 x360x440mm, the case fits mini ITX, MicroATX and standard ATX motherboards. The Skeleton case has four quick release drive bays: two for 5.25in drives and two 3.5in bays. The case's seven expansion slots provide enough room for up to three 11in video cards in SLI configuration. There are also connectors for front-mounted USB 2.0, FireWire and eSATA ports.


Priced at £110, the Skeleton is available from www.antec.com
