The magnetic tempered glass side panel allows for an easy as well as satisfying build experience, while the screw-free design and steel covers keep the case sturdy. Six motherboard fixings are pre-installed to make the installation more convenient.
For extra water-cooling, the DP31 can accommodate a 240 mm radiator in the front and a 120 mm radiator in the rear. The case offers two convertible 3.5" HDD drive cages (convertible to 1x SSD), one 2.5" SSD mounting space as well as four expansion slots.

Antec, do yourselves a favor, just release the Antec 900 in white with an updated internal layout.....recent Antec has fallen off so much, lackluster designs.

It's ok... if MSRP is $50.

Edit.
I missed the price listed in the text but I guess I wasn't that for off.

IMHO, they should do US a favor & just die, completely, as 99.99% of their products are bottom-of-the-barrel, no-design-effort-whatsoever crapola that offers absolutely nuthin new, exciting, different, or otherwise worth buying anyways.....

once again another case that tries to be small yet continues to use a ATX sized PSU. Why not SFX? You could cut a noticeable amount of height off the case and give it something unique as a selling point. Instead its more plain EGB garbage.

These cases must have an audience somewhere because Antec keeps releasing these mediocre cases with nothing unique.

60 EUR looks a lot to me, but I guess the hinged door with magnetic closure is upping the price. Front fits 2x140, which is nowhere to be shown. It has radiator support on the front mainly. Back is 120 mil, but looking at how close the door is, I kinda doubt you will be able to close if you install an AIO on the rear.

EDIT: I stand corrected for water use, on newegg, someone already posted a water setup in this case.
