Antec is kicking off 2021 with a new airflow-optimised chassis. The brand new DF700 FLUX is the third case in the new FLUX series, providing advanced ventilation through an F-LUX design.
Due to the rising cooling requirements of high-end CPUs, such as Intel’s 10th Gen Core series or AMD’s Ryzen 5000 series, Antec has been experimenting with new case ideas to improve heat dissipation. Ultimately, the team landed on the F-LUX design, featuring an advanced case structure focused on airflow, combined with 5 pre-installed 120mm fans.
Measuring in at 467mm x 220mm x 486mm (DxWxH), the DF700 FLUX offers an abundance of features that come with Antec’s original F-LUX platform. The F-LUX Platform adopts the design of a powerful ventilation system via the lower right-side panel which pulls cool air into the case through the lower PSU shroud and then up into the main interior. The front panel is designed by adopting a three-dimensional wave-shaped mesh.
The case comes ready-equipped with three 120mm ARGB fans in the front, one 120mm reverse fan on top of the PSU chamber to pull cool air into case through the ventilation at the right-side panel and at the bottom, offering a higher level of GPU cooling performance. Altogether the DF700 FLUX offers space for nine fans. In terms of liquid cooling support, there is space for a 360mm radiator in the front and top of the case, as well as a 120mm radiator on the rear. Maximum supported radiator thickness is 55mm if you mount the fans on the outer side of the radiator.
As a case with included ARGB fans, there is a built-in LED controller, which you can hook up all of your ARGB accessories to for easy controls. Other features include seven expansion slots, space for three 3.5″ HDDs or three 2.5″ SSDs. The front I/O panel includes two USB 3.0 ports, power button, HD Audio and the LED control button. Finally, magnetic dust filters are included at the top, front, bottom and side of the case for easy cleaning.
The Antec DF700 FLUX will be available in Europe soon priced at €86.
