Antec Skeleton Case Pictures From NVISION 08

Antec has been busy designing new cases and the Skeleton is an example of that. With a 250mm fan sitting on top with LED's and an open case design this thing gets plenty of airflow.

The motherboard sits on the upper level and the power supply, two optical drives and two hard drives can be placed under the board on the lower level. Pretty interesting design.

Here is the massive retail box:

I'm all for an open case, better cooling, but not very pet/kid friendly. One "hey daddy whats..." moment and something is messed up.

I do like the look of it.

Way to think outside of the box Antec!

I like this, and it's pretty creative!

Looks like it would fly right off the desk, that, or sound like it is about to.

Can't be any more of a dust trap than my Antec 900!
And yes, it's easy enough just to blow it out every so often.

I do dig that case. Aside from the price you have to be good at wire management. Though it would be easy to cool.

Agreed, the price is a bit much. But it looks freakin unique as heck and I'd love to get my hands on one.

They overpriced this, and I don't think it is selling that well right now. They were bashing it the other day at NCIX. :lol:
