Antec Unveils Stunning Signature S10 Chassis

Antec announced its newest flagship PC case, the Signature S10. Arguably the most important product for the Antec brand, the case looks like a typical ATX full-tower, but is 3-chambered inside. The most notable design element here is a drive cage that spans the entire height of the case, with its own side doors, letting you hot-swap 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch drives. The inner chambers include a large motherboard tray with room for XL-ATX motherboards, and two 280 / 420 mm radiators; and a bottom chamber with room for an extremely large PSU, and liquid cooling ancillaries, such as pumps and reservoirs. The case will be available in Europe from July, and will be priced at 399 GBP.

Here is a chassis that really has nothing a PC modder would want. Most modders want a glass side window to show off their mods and much more various methods to route cables. The price is also much too high. 5 years ago I liked Antec's PC parts but they haven't introduced anything lately that I find eye-catching or innovative.

Whoever designs their cases needs to talk to modders for feedback.

Dont know why, but seems like Antec is sliding down the path even more. They really need to rethink their case designs and strategy.

I can't agree with you more. It's almost like they have design engineers who haven't a clue about how people build their own PCs.

Stunning? I'm certainly stunned but not for the right reasons. Oh how the mighty have fallen, this case is a turd.

This is not for me at all, I'd much rather have the P380. In fact I just took a glance of all available cases on their site. That was really the only case that made me say "stunning".

I use to build with a lot of Antec cases but haven't in probably... OMG... 10 years?! I just looked up when the P150 was released and it was 2005! That was the last case (which I still use today).

It doesn't look bad. It just isn't new or interesting, and the interior is still behind other big cases.
I really had hoped Antec would bring something great this time.
The last Antec case that was interesting was the P1000 concept that they never made. :shadedshu:

Good concept with a few unnecessary solutions. 10 PCI slot could be 8, and would double the thickness of the upper radiator. and only 6 discs much space positioned so that the air flow is deteriorating, it"s lack window on the door or even the entire door and window in relation to the design. It looks really nice.

Not everything should be modder friendly. Personally I hate windows with a passion.

I agree with your sentiments,....

However, there is also the definition of a moder in question. IMO a moder is someone who could easily put in a window in such a case if they so chose to and make it (the window) look so good that it looked factory installed (rather then some hack job). A mod is after all a "modification",.....not an off the shelf product.

I view windows on a case like I view some little kid putting a racing stripe on the side of his little soapbox racer, thinking it makes it go faster.

Because you're dumb.
Antec is a pale shadow of other times but that's no reason to go and feed the Apple of hardware.

Buy Cooler Master cases instead.

€500.... what a joke.

Antec are taking drugs, many many drugs.

The case claims to be high end.... it has a plastic top panel, how can any case over €300 have any plastic at all!

Antec go home.....!

Don't bother anymore.
