Antec Makes Mini Skeleton 90 Official

Antec, Inc., the global leader in high-performance computer components and accessories for the gaming, PC upgrade and Do-It-Yourself markets, today announced the Mini Skeleton-90, the Mini-ITX model of Antec's popular Skeleton case. The Mini Skeleton-90 is the first open-air enclosure designed exclusively for Mini-ITX motherboards, and offers unique cooling, flexibility and style for small form factor systems. Providing high levels of cooling, the Mini Skeleton-90 features a top-mounted 150mm TriCool blue LED fan and a rear 70 mm fan, while the open-air frame enables greater airflow than traditional enclosures. The removable component tray provides quick, convenient access to components and allows for efficient cable routing which prevents wires from impeding airflow.

Antec Two Hundred Surfaces

Antec is ready with another "Hundred" series PC case, this time a new entry-level model that squats below the Three Hundred. The Antec Two Hundred is a standard ATX case, with the basic Hundred series design as far as placement of fans goes. The front air-intake grill sports a polygonal design. The 3.5-inch HDD/FDD external drive bay provides hot-swap capability. Including this, there are six 3.5-inch bays in all, below three 5.25-inch bays. The PSU bay is below the motherboard tray, which provides a gap for some basic cable-management. The motherboard tray further features a gap behind the CPU socket area, which allows users to manage CPU coolers with back-plates or bolt-through kits better. There is provision for five fans, that include the bundled 140 mm top fan, a 120 mm rear exhaust fan, along with two 120 mm intakes in the front, and one 120 mm side. The case will make it deeper into the value-mainstream, with an estimated price tag of US $59.

Antec Readying Mini Skeleton 90

Case, power and cooling specialist Antec just shrunk the Skeleton enthusiast-grade bench chassis, just about enough to fit the Mini-ITX motherboard form factor, which is what makes the Mini Skeleton 90 surprising. The chassis retains the "picnic-basket" bench design the Skeleton has, measuring 210 (W) × 230 (D) × 190 (H) mm, and tipping the scales at around 2.5 kg.

A two-stage drawer holds the motherboard on the top stage which is cooled by a large LED-lit 150 mm fan, and the lower stage holding the disk drives and power supply. The chassis holds one 5.25-inch drive using a quick-release drive bay. There is one quick-release and two fixed 2.5-inch (yes, 2.5-inch) drive bays. Apart from the 150 mm fan on top, there is a 70 mm fan to cool the lower stage. Standard front-panel headers such as USB and audio are also present. The case is backed by a 3-year company warranty. Its price in the US is yet to be known.
