Antec Releases DA601 Mid-Tower Gaming Chassis 1

Antec DA601 Mid-Tower Chassis

For some time now I’ve been in the market for a new chassis. It’s not necessarily that I have a problem with my existing one, but it is perhaps a bit bigger (and certainly far heavier) than I really need. When you are in the market for a new case, however, it is difficult to know where to start. There are, after all, so many designs available (some good, some bad) and aesthetics is, of course, always subjective.

I have, however, come across one which I am genuinely tempted with. Namely, the DA601 which has just been released by Antec.

Aesthetics

Based on the images released, I am already a huge fan of the aesthetics. Admittedly, I was perhaps initially taken in by the nice angular style of the frontage exposing the RGB central fan (of which you can install 3 to the front all via sync). With its mid-size design, however, this is exactly the type of chassis that I am in the market for. It still has excellent airflow options and offers strong design options for even the most enthusiastic of system builders. That full-screen view on the side as well gives you more than a little reason to get your system out on display!

Standing at just 500mm tall and supporting motherboards up to E-ATX (12″ x 11″) so far this is looking to be a very positive release from Antec.

When Is It Out?

The Antec DA601 is currently available now for a price in the region of £80. To me, this is again ticking another major box in what is surprisingly a very decent price. I should note as well, in case any of you are getting curious at this point, Antec hasn’t paid me to say this. Being in the market for a new chassis this is genuinely one of the few designs that has really caught my attention. I am (in all honestly) giving this chassis very strong consideration for my own personal system.
