Antec Eleven Hundred Mid Tower Chassis Review
Peter Donnell / 8 years ago
Looking at the packaging for the Antec Eleven Hundred case we see that the layout and imagery follows a similar design to that of the other cases in the Antec range. The iconic black box with a vibrant yellow strip down one side makes the packaging jump out from the crowd. On the front is a large dramatic graphic of the Eleven Hundred.
This displays the top, front of the case in eye catching contrast while giving a subtle hint of the top fan glowing blue. The yellow strip is a bold statement on what is a very simple box layout but never the less is aesthetically pleasing, complete with a line of vertical text that reads “Designed by Antec in California”.
In addition to these graphics we find the Antec logo in the top hand corner mirrored at the bottom of the box with the Eleven Hundred graphic. As a manufacturer Antec have just celebrated 25 years of quality, innovative design and production. To mark this important year in the company’s life, Antec have introduced the “25” branding on all of their products as well as online webpages. As you can see here the logo is embellished with this branding, complete with the strap line “A Quarter Century of Quality and Innovation”.
With such a sleek box design Antec have left the case to do the real talking. However to entice you in they have filled the rear of the box with a structured breakdown of the towers key features. Any keen gamer looking to build a computer has a firm idea of what is needed from a case. Antec have worked hard to identify these attributes and build them into the design of the Eleven Hundred. This graphical real estate found on the reverse of the box looks to demonstrate these key features using yellow highlighted areas with multilingual descriptions including maximum cooling, improved internal dimensions, and a user friendly connectivity system.
The case comes complete with a variety of accessories to get you started. This includes a variety of screws for motherboard and SSD installation, a user manual, cable management ties, as well as six pairs of quick installation runners which clip onto standard 3.5″ HDD’s for tool-less installation into the hard drive cage.
