New under $60 champion?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I just found a sweet case for 45 bux online for my server rig. It's the Antec DF-10. I don't normally post on cases at all but since it's so hard to find a good case for cheap with a black interior and window (not that I really need it for a server), I figure I'd see what other people thought of this thing. It seems to have decent cable management and layout for its price point. Does anyone else have this case? I haven't read any reviews on it but so far I'm impressed just from looking at the pictures.

From Antec:
Bottom-mounted power supply isolates heat
CPU cutout allows for easy installation of CPU coolers
Washable fan filters allow for easy cleaning
Cable routing compartment organizes cables discreetly
11 drive bays
- 6 x internal 3.5"
- 3 x external 5.25"
- 1 x internal bottom-mounted 2.5" SSD bay

- 1 x rear 120mm TwoCool™ fan
- 1 x side 120 mm fan for graphics cards (optional)

Stylish blacked-out interior

Motherboards: Mini-ITX, microATX, Standard ATX
Includes standard case lock slot for integrated anti-theft protection
Power supply not included

The case seems nice, but I don't see as much CM holes as I would like. Ever since NZXT released the source 210 for 40 bucks with all the features it has, I have not seen another budget case with all the bells and whistles it provides.

Edit: I do like the design of this case though!

Hmm, it's $99 on their website.

The MSRP is always much higher than the "street price". You should be able to find them for around 60 dollars if you search around online. I got mine for $45 but now I'm thinking it may have been a pricing error on their part...who knows.
