Antec DF700 FLUX Case Review
Peter Donnell / 6 months ago
Antec has been making cases for longer than I can remember, from affordable boxes up to some truly bonkers concepts. It seems they’ve had a little of something for everyone over the last couple of decades. Their new DF700 really caught my interest, though, as it has a really funky looking front panel that I just had to check out in person. Of course, once I saw the rest of the specifications, I knew this case was going to be something pretty special, and with a price around £70, it sounded like it could be one of the best cases hitting the market this year!
Antec DF700 FLUX
The mid-tower case market is extremely competitive, but this one is coming in at a fairly reasonable price. However, despite that, Antec has crammed an astonishing level of features into it. You get a tempered glass side panel, three built-in 120mm ARGB fans, a built-in fan and RGB control hub, dust filters on all intakes, impressive fan/radiator support, a high-airflow design for maximum performance, a PSU shroud, stealth drive mounts, cable routing, and so much more. Basically, if there’s a box to tick, it’s ticked.

To cope with the stress of enhanced heat dissipation, Antec developed a revolutionary structure for airflow, providing an improved and powerful cooling solution for your system. The F-LUX Platform.
- F-LUX Platform – What is the F-LUX Platform? The definition of FLUX is Flow Luxury. The F-LUX Platform is a new industry-leading and highly efficient design by Antec featuring an advanced case structure for excellent airflow combined with 5 x 120 mm fans included. A core element of the design ethos was to enhance GPU cooling performance.

- Go with the Flow – The front panel is designed by adopting a three-dimensional wave-shaped mesh, presenting a smoothly minimalist looking. With massive ventilation in the front, the DF700 FLUX can easily project attractive light effects and enhance cooling.
