Excerpt: In a weird twist, Antec has delivered a case that’s both full on features and lacking in some of the company’s staple design elements. Take, for example, the case’s built-in fan controller—or lack thereof. We’re used to being able to flick switches to independently control all of the fans within an Antec chassis, but after connecting a Molex to the provided circuit board in the Eleven Hundred —annoyance number one—we were displeased to find that the switch only turns the...
Pros: Simple installation; good cable management; excellent temperatures.

Excerpt: 11 Flares 11 Flares × Antec’s original ‘hundred’ chassis series was a huge success. Many years of market domination were achieved by the popular Three Hundred, Nine Hundred and Twelve Hundred cases. With over a decade of service between them, that supremacy has come to an end. A series update was required. Can Antec’s new flagship replicate the success of its predecessors?
Summary: Trotz fehlender Frontlüfter konnte uns das neue Antec Gehäuse überzeugen. Die schlichte Optik, die hochwertige Verarbeitungsqualität und vor allem das üppige Platzangebot sprechen für das Gaming Case. Auch die zahlreichen Schnellmontageelemente sowie das faire Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis können sich sehen lassen. Kurz gesagt: Ein fast perfektes Gehäuse für Besitzer von High-End Hardware.
Christoph meint: Sehr gutes Big-Case!
