Antec and ASRock have designed a new case for ITX builds. The iF Design Awards 2020 winner ‘Striker Phantom Gaming Edition' uses 4mm tempered glass, as well as an aluminium and steel structure to give modders an “open-air frame” with “great thermal performance” through its wide cooling capabilities and support.
Despite its size, the Striker Phantom Gaming Edition can house 330mm long GPU in the front (max 150mm wide and 60mm height) thanks to the front-mounted GPU rack. The open-air design allows air to flow into your system without obstruction, while the tempered glass panels let you showcase your system “from any angle”.
Supported PSUs are up to 160mm long, and there's 45mm of space behind the motherboard tray to manage the system cables. There are brackets for two 2.5-inch drives that can be easily removed by pulling them up. Fan and radiator are also supported, with up to 2x 120mm fans and a 240mm radiator on the rear and on the side.
The front I/O panel includes 1x USB-C 3.1 port, 2x USB-A 3.0 ports, an audio-in jack, and audio-out jack and the power button. There's a PCI-E riser cable included to mount the GPU on the front. The case measures 420x230x410mm (LxWxH) and features an ASRock Phantom Gaming logos on each side.
The Antec Striker Phantom Gaming Edition mini-ITX will be available later this week, priced at $249.99. You can learn more about this case HERE.
