Antec Releases New Dark League DF800 FLUX ATX 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 mid tower of their award-winning Gaming Series: the DF800 FLUX. The chassis features new visual effects with a geometrical front panel design which mirrors light effects through its special surface design. The full-view tempered glass side panel lets the user show off the build, while the interior of the chassis allows for thought-out ventilation thanks to huge air intakes as well as plenty of space for watercooling and case fans. The case is now commercially available from USD $119.99.

The new DF800 FLUX measures 479 x 220 x 488 mm (DxWxH) and is compatible with ATX, micro-ATX and Mini-ITX motherboards. In terms of fan support, the case accommodates three 120 mm / three 140 mm in the front, three 120 mm fans / two 140 mm fans on top as well as one 120 mm fan in the rear and two fans on the PSU shroud. The DF800 FLUX features a number of pre-installed fans: three 120 mm ARGB fans in the front, one 120 mm reverse fan on the PSU shroud and one 120 mm fan in the rear of the case.
For extra water-cooling, the DF800 FLUX can accommodate a 360 mm radiator in the front and on top and a 120 mm radiator in the rear. The case boasts three convertible tool-less 3.5" HDD drive cages (convertible to 2x 2,5" SSDs), three 2.5" SSD mounting spaces as well as seven expansion slots. The DF800 has plenty of space for graphics cards with a length of up to 405 mm and effective ventilation, making it particularly suitable for gamers as well. The DF800 FLUX supports high-end air coolers with a maximum CPU Cooler Height of 175 mm and power supplies with a length of 205 mm.

The I / O panel features Power and reset buttons, two USB 3.0 and Mic/Audio jacks. Included dust plugs cater for damage prevention. With 34,5 mm in the front and 26,5 mm clearance in the rear, the case offers sufficient space for cable management, allowing for a clean build and optimized air flow.

Antec FLUX stands for Flow Luxury. Antec's FLUX platform is a new industry-leading design featuring a highly efficient case structure for enhanced airflow as well as five pre-installed 120 mm fans. Until today, Antec has launched a number of FLUX cases, namely the DF600 FLUX, DF700 FLUX, DF800 FLUX, DP502 FLUX, DP502 FLUX White and, last but not least, the P10 FLUX. Antec's original cooling concept FLUX is a core element of the case layout for outstanding GPU Cooling Performance, leading to ultimate Gaming Experience.

The one thing that hits me immediately is that bottom fan placement, underneath would have been better looking.

True, longer PSUs tend to be 1kw+ and I would find a bigger, better, badder case if I had hardware that needed such a larger PSU.

Tho why not use a cheaper case, a high-end build doesn't need an expensive case and same goes otherwise. Tho my rig is kinda made of older high-end shit still a 80EUR Corsair case is fine.
