2003 Winter Case Review Part 2: The ATX Avalanche

Antec Solution Series: SLK3700-BQE

In addition to its aluminum chassis case, Antec also shipped us a new member of their Solution Series, the SLK3700-BQE. The SLK3700-BQE is reminiscent in both case and style of the Antec Lanboy case that we reviewed in a previous case review . Most noticeably, the SLK3700-BQE is targeted toward more mainstream applications, and the Lanboy was targeted at PC gamers and enthusiasts. With the SLK3700-BQE, Antec is attempting to cover both bases with the addition of this model.

The obvious changes between the Lanboy and the SLK3700-BQE will become more apparent once we dig into this review.
