Antec DP31 Micro-ATX Mini Tower Case Review

Exterior

Without a doubt, this is a lovely looking PC case. It’s a nice mixture of retro and modern too, with some bold lines on the front panel, and that full-side tempered glass window giving you a great view of the case interior.

The side panel is completely tool-free. It uses a magnetic locking system, and a hinge at the rear, so you can pop it open easily enough.

The right side panel is just a standard black panel, nothing fancy, but it’s neat and tidy and gets the job done.

The front panel has plenty going on though, with what Antec describe as “claw-shaped air intakes and an irregular ARGB strip.” It does look cool though, offering plenty of airflow, while the built-in ARGB lighting will add a touch of colour when the system is powered on.

At the rear, you can see there’s a pre-installed 120mm fan, which comes with some elongated screw holes, allowing for a small amount of height adjustment.

There are four expansion slots, and a small bracket to the side, allowing more wiggle room for installing graphics cards.

There’s a full ATX PSU mount too, so you won’t need to invest in a more expensive SFX unit for this build.

On the top, there’s plenty of ventilation, but it also supports two 120mm fans if you want to expand your cooling.

The front I/O is reasonably well equipped, with two USB 2.0 ports, and one USB 3.0 port. There’s also HD Audio jacks, as well as the usual power and lighting controls.

On the underside, you’ll see some ventilation for the PSU, as well as a clip-in mesh dust filter.

As a child still in my 30's, I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
