A Closer Look - Outside

Out of the box, the Antec DF700 Flux draws your attention to the clean window and a pretty unique-looking front panel. It is made out of plastic and a nicely shaped metal mesh front that is clearly the central focus of the enclosure's looks.

With its uniquely shaped metal-mesh front, the chassis is designed with a focus on airflow. The mesh also acts a dust filter and allows for any lighting elements embedded in the fans to shine through nicely. You may pull the whole plastic front cover off to access the three pre-installed 120 mm intake fans. In the rear, the Antec DF700 Flux looks pretty traditional, with the PSU bay on the bottom.

In the rear, the PSU bay comes with two sets of mounting holes—you can install any PSU here without issue. Above that are the seven expansion slots, each of which is protected by a removable cover. In the very top is another fan, this time with gray blades and set to push hot air out the back of the chassis. This means the Antec DF700 Flux ships with a whooping five fans out of the box, something the Dark Fleet series has been known for since its inception.

The glass side panel is framed in black and has no visible mounting holes, which makes it look very clean and is something we usually only see with slightly more expensive cases—this is a nice surprise in a lower price segment. On the opposite side is a solid steel panel with a large air vent on the bottom. This allows for cool air to enter through the side, which is then pushed up by the reverse fan Antec includes.

On top, you will find a magnetic metal mesh cover that protects your two 140 or three 120 mm fans or a radiator of up to 360 mm from dust and grime. Next to it, you will find the power and RGB LED toggle buttons, the usual activity lights, and a pair of USB 3.0 ports with audio in/out plugs. As a nice little addition, Antec has placed their silicon covers on them right out of the box.

Taking a quick look at the underside of the DF600 Flux, you will find screws that hold the internal HDD cage in place—you may hence remove it should you need the space for something else. The dust filter protecting the PSU bay from dirt may be pulled out through the back of the chassis without laying the enclosure on its side.
