Cooltek Releases Silent Antiphon Cases

German manufacturer Cooltek has announced the availability of the Antiphon lineup of enclosures. The aim of this lineup is to be affordable yet possess a high level of quality. Part of the high-quality appeal would be simplistic aesthetics together with plentiful sound-dampening material.

The enclosure would be comprised of a combination of steel, plastic and brushed aluminum. Inside the enclosure there is room for up to four 120 mm fans, four 3.5" drives, four 2.5" drives, three optical drives, up to ATX size motherboards and a standard ATX size power supply. External connectivity is taken care of by a single USB 3.0 port, a single USB 2.0 port and a pair of HD audio ports. The enclosure also has a built-in fan controller that has two settings, likely 12 V and 5 V.

The enclosure itself weighs a hefty 8 kg, but one and a half of those kilograms are all sound-dampening material. The Antiphon enclosures measure 445 x 195 x 500 mm. The longest graphics card can be up to 320 mm long.

The enclosures will be available in white, black, silver and anthracite. They will ship with either no power supply or a 550 W or 650 W power supply. Pricing ranges from €65 up to €130, which translates to roughly $85 to $170.

    Looks just like NZXT H2 to me. Let me guess: hot-swappable front fans?

    it has a nice look, but I thought front panels died in 2005? weird front panel USB wasting 3.0 AND 2.0 header?? just use 2 3.0. Off one cable. Come on its backwards compatible to 2.0 are they nuts? And 120mm fans? Really?

    For.$90 AT THE CHEAPEST its a no sale. Much better cases at that price. Going up to$170 ..... WHAT??? Even with a crappy PSU its never worth that

    Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job Ive had. Last Monday I got a new Alfa Romeo from bringing in $7778. I started this 9 months ago and practically straight away started making more than $83 per hour. I work through this link,>>>>>>>> www.Wow72.coℳ

    Start going to hell with "Elsinore Tootell"

    I understand Tomshardware gets a lot of illiterate posters, but only an idiot would believe you... real members will shut you down instantly. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE at least till we start dispatching death squads at spammers.

    Last month you got a new "Alfa Romeo".

    North Korea? Is that you? You know your a century behind with indoctrinated slaves right? You're cute. But its like a hermit crab being pissed. Kim jong crab

    There's simplistic aesthetics, and then there's no aesthetics at all.

    I personally like a case that does NOT stand out. Fractal Define R2 was great for that.

    I like the Fractal case too.

    Some of my favorite cases are always the simple one ones that looked like home theater equipment, but not looking cheap at the same time. Lian Li is a good example.
