Antec Launches the Dark Avenger 601 Case

Antec today released its Dark Avenger 601 ATX mid-tower chassis for gaming PC builds high on RGB LED illumination. The case is characterized by a faux-aluminium ornament on the front panel that conceals the front fan intakes, a tempered glass left side-panel, and an in-built addressable RGB LED lighting controller. The front ornament is studded with aRGB LED strips that make up an "X" shape. The lighting can either be wired to the in-built controller which cycles lighting presets at the push of a button on the front-panel, or be directly plugged in to your motherboard over a standard 3-pin aRGB header.

The DA601 features a conventional partitioned layout, with the motherboard tray serving up room for ATX motherboards with 7 expansion slots, graphics cards up to 40 cm in length, and CPU coolers up to 16 cm in height. Storage areas include two 3.5-inch/2.5-inch trays in the bottom compartment, and four 2.5-inch drive mounts behind the motherboard tray. Cooling features include three 120 mm fan mounts each along the front- and top-panels, and a rear 120 mm exhaust. Antec includes two fans with the case, an aRGB illuminated Prizm along the front intake, and a regular 120 mm spinner at the rear. The case measures 480 mm x 220 mm x 500 mm (DxWxH). Front panel connectivity includes two USB 3.1 type-A ports, HDA jacks, and the RGB controller cycle button. The company didn't reveal pricing.

Dark avenger.. with pink rgb in front on of it at one of marketing photos. Now imagine Nolan makes fourth batman movie, "dark knight eclipse": thugs preparing for taking over Gotham City once again, tense music playing, thugs disappearing one by one and then he shows up, batman in his new suit: dark as night, with a bat logo on his chest and this logo's edges gently glow with pink led light. That's how i see this pc case and its name on that exact picture.

Atleast the Xpredator Red/Gold Looked like an Avenger Theme.

This one is Interesting though.

Id like to see an Enlarged Modular SX830 Case.

Not pink. It will cycle between 16.7million colours.

Every single news feed about new case from Antec is met with one of the following permutations: boring, we've seen this before, better be 40 bucks...etc. I don't know what you are expecting from Antec, but it is either too much or they just offer some terrible stuff. Whatever legendary status they had 10 years ago, that was back then. Now it is what it is. It ain't a bad case if this is the functionality/ aesthetics you are going for IMO. Not my cup of tea, but someone else's definitely.
