Antec Announces the DF800 FLUX Case
Peter Donnell / 2 months ago
Antec is one of the best-known case makers in the world, with a history that goes back longer than I can remember! My first case was Antec, and that was a long time ago. Now, they’re revealing their latest mid-tower case, while is part of their award-winning Gaming Series: the DF800 FLUX.
The DF800 FLUX PC Case features new visual effects, with a geometrical front panel design that mirrors light effects through its special surface design. It does look pretty funky, and I can’t help but be reminded of those funky triangle lights most YouTubers seem to splash on their walls. That’s not a bad thing though, they look cool, and so does the DF800!
With a large tempered glass panel on the left side, you’ll be able to enjoy the RGB and show off your build with ease. Thanks to huge air intakes, and plentiful fan and radiator mounts, cooling certainly won’t be an issue either, making it well suited for high-end builds.
Hardware and Cooling
The new DF800 FLUX measures 479 x 220 x 488mm (DxWxH) and is compatible with ATX, micro-ATX and Mini-ITX motherboards. In terms of fan support, the case accommodates three 120/140 mm in the front, three 120mm fans or two 140 mm fans on top as well as one 120mm fan in the rear and two fans on the PSU shroud. The DF800 FLUX features a number of pre-installed fans: three 120mm ARGB fans in the front, one 120 mm reverse fan on the PSU shroud and one 120 mm fan in the rear of the case. For water-cooling, the DF800 FLUX can accommodate a 360mm radiator in the front and on top and a 120mm radiator in the rear.
The case boasts three convertible tool-less 3.5″ HDD drive cages (convertible to 2x 2,5″ SSDs), three 2.5″ SSD mounting spaces as well as seven expansion slots. The DF800 has plenty of space for graphics cards with a length of up to 405 mm and effective ventilation, making it particularly suitable for gamers as well. The DF800 FLUX supports high-end air coolers with a maximum CPU Cooler Height of 175 mm and power supplies with a length of 205 mm.
The I / O panel features Power and reset buttons, two USB 3.0 and Mic/Audio jacks. Included dust plugs cater for damage prevention. With 34,5 mm in the front and 26,5 mm clearance in the rear, the case offers sufficient space for cable management, allowing for a clean build and optimized airflow.
Price and Availability
The case is now from most major retailers with an MSRP of around 93 Euros.
