Antec’s P101 Silent case has arrived, complete with a disk drive bay

Antec is beefing up its case lineup for 2019, this time with an addition to the renowned Performance One case series. The P101 Silent is launching this month for those who value a quiet system above all else.

The P101 Silent measures in at 527mm x 232mm x 506mm (L x W x H), in other words, it is a mid-tower case with plenty of room to fit in some decent components. As you would expect, the side panels come with sound dampening foam to reduce noise levels. Meanwhile, the front panel can swing open for easy access to its magnetic dust filter and three 120mm intake fans.

The case comes with four pre-installed fans, three 120mm intakes at the front and one 140mm exhaust at the back. In terms of motherboard support, you’ll be able to slot in motherboards all the way up to E-ATX in size, making this case capable of housing high-end gaming hardware, or even workstation grade components.

For storage, you’ll get room for up to eight 3.5-inch HDDs in addition to two 2.5-inch SSD slots. There is also an optical disk drive bay, a trend that has been bucked by most modern cases available today.

Graphics/expansion cards up to 450mm long are supported, as are CPU coolers up to 180mm tall. There is enough space for a 360mm radiator to be installed for liquid cooling and all of the system fans can be hooked up to an integrated controller with a fan speed switch on the front panel.

The P101 Silent goes for a sleek design externally but everything is still very minimalist. On paper, it sounds like a practical case all around. We’ll hopefully have a full review to share in the not too distant future.

The Antec P101 Silent is available from this week onwards. Here in the UK, it is available via Amazon for £102.

Briony builds ALL WHITE PC in the Limited Edition DARK BASE 700

Back in 2017 Leo took at look at the Dark Base 700 from Be Quiet! Leo liked the case with its sleek styling and impressively quiet design but thought it was a little on the pricey side. During CES a new version of the case, the 'Limited edition White Dark Base 700' was announced. With only 3000 units available there hasn't been much movement on the price with the case retailing for £166.99. I was sent one of the 3000 cases and was happy to use it to create an all white build and document the whole process on video.
