The Luxo K10 chassis is largely identical to the Gigabyte's IF 400 chassis announced earlier this week and the only differences between the two enclosures is their respective front panels. The Luxo K10 features room for four 5.25" optical drives (the IF 400 only supports two), is completely perforated for better airflow and presents a far more restrained appearance.
The case also moves the front I/O connectors from a 2.5" drive bay to the top of the front panel and offers a single USB 3.0 port which is sadly a pass through type A rather than a motherboard header, three USB 2.0 ports and the standard HD audio connectors.
Much like the IF 400, the Luxo K10 is built from 0.6 mm SGCC steel and ABS and features support for a maximum of ATX-sized motherboards, four 5.25" tool-free drives and five 3.5" / 2.5" bays.
At the time of writing there was yet no word on pricing or availability, but we can expect the Luxo K10 to have a similiar price to the IF 400. We consider it likely that both cases will be priced to compete with the similarly equipped Antec Three Hundred which currently retails for around $60.

If Tom's sources their news from Techpowerup, what is the point in us reading the news here? C'mon guys I like it here, don't drive me away....Reply
I like making troll comments here. But it does not take a lot of effort to be put into the loop on these things. Just ask to get the press release of any new products from these companies. That's what the other sites do. Step 1 is asking, most of these companies are glad for the free advertising.Reply
at first glance I thought it was an antec caseReply
