Antec P110 Luce Case Review

Benchmark Results & Conclusion

[Note: This is a different test platform from the one used in our other ATX case reviews, so we re-tested the BitFenix Nova to keep the comparison fair. This is indicated by the "test #2." Readers who are good with numbers should be able to make comparisons between the cases tested here and those tested at our other lab.]

During testing, temperatures on our budget quad-core i5-7500 processor running at 3.8 GHz reached 45°C over the ambient temperature of 25°C. GPU temperatures definitely benefited from the placement of the 120mm intake fan, registering 56°C over the ambient temperature. In the end, we saw higher CPU temp and lower GPU temps than other chassis in this comparison set.

The benefit of having only two 120mm fans and a large tempered glass panel are that acoustics are very good overall. At idle, the P110 Luce rivaled the performance of the Bitfenix Nova TG. Additionally, at just 34.4dBA under full load, this chassis provided the lowest noise output of the three chassis used for comparison purposes.

Determining acoustic efficiency, also referred to as cooling-to-noise ratio, is a matter of averaging all five of our tests to determine a base value.

Although our performance-value chart doesn’t take features into account, we don't think the Antec P110 Luce has enough extras to justify its $120 price tag. Especially considering the fact that the market is full of cases with tempered-glass side panels that cost half what Antec is asking.

    Nice to see Antec entering the tempered glass game! Long overdue!

    The NZXT 340 elite is cheaper, and better looking, better build quality.

    Only thing this case does better is the top filter, which nzxt 340 elite does not provide for some dumb reason (you have to purchase from 3rd party supplier separately)

    For some reason the photos are broken for me in Firefox Quantum.
    I see a number where the photo should be and arrows on the left and right.
    The charts display correctly.

    G,
    Antec had the P8 but that also suffered from a higher price tag after a couple of reviewers's reviews went live. You've gotta give them props for coming out with a chassis that has it's branding illuminated on the PSU shroud and the front fascia.

    Yeah I like that part of the design, it's a very nice touch to it. It will be a good addition of my usual go to cases - the Fractals, NZXTs, and Phanteks that I typically own and recommend.

    The German beauty, Raijintek Asterion Classic Plus is a great aluminium case, tampered glass on both sides and ample case filteration, would be interested how that fares in the benchmark test.
