Antec Announces the P110 Luce Chassis

Antec Inc., a leading provider of high-performance computer components and accessories for the gaming, PC upgrade and Do-It-Yourself market, presents the latest addition to their renowned Performance One Case series: The P110 Luce. The case is now commercially available from 119€ (suggested retail price including VAT).

The Antec P110 Luce lets you shed a light on your installed hardware: The frame measures 489 mm x 230 mm x 518 mm (L x W x H) and features a tempered glass panel on the side. The mid-tower is made of 1mm+0.8 mm steel & ABS and the front panel is made of 0.8 mm anodized aluminium. The P110 Luce accommodates ATX-, Micro-ATX and ITX-mainboards and offers space for up to six 3.5" HDDs (convertible for four 2.5" SSDs) and two 2.5" SDDs as well as ten expansion slots (eight horizontal and two vertical slots). Users can install VGA cards with a length of up to 390 mm. The card holder features an extra bracket which makes it easy to adjust the actual position of the VGA and to achieve better compatibility. This also supports the weight of heavy VGA cards.
In order to keep its cool, the P110 Luce offers space for 3x120 mm or 2x140mm case fans in the front, 2x120mm or 2x140mm at the top and 1x120 mm fan in the rear. The thought-out case already comes with one pre-installed 120 mm fan at the front and one in the back. For extra water-cooling, the P110 allows to install a 280 mm radiator on top, a 360 mm radiator in the front and a 120 mm radiator in the rear. The P110 Luce offers space for CPU coolers with a maximum height of 165 mm, a maximum GPU length of 390 mm. The front bezel features 2x USB 3.0, VR-ready HDMI port, Audio In/Out and a RGB LED control switch. For more information, please visit our website and follow us on facebook and twitter.

Asking again - where the hell is the airflow?! why do "advanced" cases have such horrible venting?

C'mon Antec, do something about it already!

That's a nice looking case.

I currently own a P280, which still has 5.25”, and i happen to use one for my Scythe Kaze Master Pro... I guess i would have to remove the bottom HDD cage and just lay it down there.

I see they also have a Silent Variant with closed side Panel.

You can take out the sidevents on the front panel for better airflow if you so want.

Every new picture of this Antec case that I viewed....reminded me and more of this:

Although, as correctly pointed out by the OP....air flow from the front venting area appears to be quite a bit more restricted on the Antec.



Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery?

Antec has had the P series and design before Fractal Design was founded. They made PSU compartments and removable storage cages popular before most of the newer companies even existed.

This is the first time since 2005 that I'd consider buying Antec again. Have a P150 from back then, which is still in use today.

Looks like finally antec is getting there. Now would like to see a true successor to antec 900 and 1100 series of cases with good airflow.
Edit:
Found a review on youtube of the case and it does seem like its much more well designed compared to P8.

I was going to say that very thing,....

I've seen a number of Fractal cases that looked like replicas of well established Antec designs. Too many to count in fact.

Yep, I had the P180 mini way back and I remember when Fractal dropped the first Define case I thought... wow.. did they just license an Antec case and slap their name on it?? It was nearly identical except the P180 has the big 180mm fan on top.

One thing I do like about this design is the strip that covers the wire management rubber grommets. It's a pretty subtle detail, but I think hiding the grommets and the cables coming through them just makes for a cleaner look. The GPU brace on it is also a welcome addition that adds some practicality to an otherwise cosmetic feature. I would like to see this done in more cases in the future (except for the yellow text on it... I hope that's just a clear sticker that peels off and not painted on lettering...)

This is a cut-n-paste job like every new chassis out there. Blank front panel, windowed side panel, blacked out interior, and a bottem PSU.

And the Top mount I/O... Can't these companies at least make that a module that you can configure to face front or up if that's what you really want?

I like the aesthetic (minimalist, clean lines, etc.) but the small vent slots choke the inlet flow too much. It seems like so many of these types of cases have a somewhat restricted inlet. :(

Giving credit where it's due, it looks like there's a ton of room behind the motherboard tray and the GPU bracket is a nice plus. :cool:
