Antec Announces Striker Open Air Chassis

Antec, leading provider of high-performance computer components and accessories for the gaming, PC upgrade and Do-It-Yourself market, shows off a new angle of innovation: the new open-frame Mini-Tower "Striker" is now commercially available at MSRP USD$ 249.99 in US.

Striker is designed for custom water-cooling enthusiasts. Characterized by its irregular shape, unique form and innovative structure, Striker is the first open case featuring a front-placed VGA design, ITX form factor and bold styling. Shaped into a spectacular open-air frame, Striker measures 420 mm x 230 mm x 410 mm and comes with a front GPU mount. Located on the right side, the front access includes a Type-C 3.1, 2x USB 3.0 ports, HD Audio and power button.
The Mini-Tower is composed of 4 mm tempered glass panels and lets the user show off his build. The aluminium and steel structure adds to a quality finish and durability. The open frame provides great thermal performance and gives enthusiasts a good challenge. Users can install up to 2x 120 mm fans and 1x 240 mm radiator at the side and rear for extreme cooling, with open space to build the ideal water-cooling system. The chassis accommodates a GPU of up to 330 mm, a power supply with maximum length of 160 mm and offers 45 mm space for cable management. A PCI-E riser cable is already part of this awesome package. Thanks to the 90 degrees motherboard rotation, users will find plenty of space to hide the cables in the bottom of the chassis.

I realize Antec isn't or never really has been at the top of the upper-end products, but you would think they would at least wanna present their new stuff in the best possible way, yes ?

What a shame, as it actually looks kinda cool...

I really like the look, i think its futuristic like hardware from a movile like oblivion.

Surprised its itx, i wonder how an air cooled build would fair given the cfm or lack there of.

Youd be wanting a super quiet gpu in this thing though given the flex placement, an asus Direct CU II comes to mind.

Honestly surprised and not sure what to think.

Got that futuristic edge, without going full teen-machine or trying to compete with Inwin. Looking on Antec's own site, it's a busy, weird case, and the photos and diagrams are borderline frustrating for any layout planning. By the numbers, this thing is damn near 40L in volume, but only ITX? Supposedly room for a pair of 240mm rads? I think they need to seriously consider getting a Name to endorse/build/promote this case properly, or it's just going to be a footnote.

Sick looking case! Reminds me of an NZXT Manta that went through hell and back. The only downside is that you're gonna have to keep removing the glass panel to access your rear io now that it's facing down. We need pricing!
