The cool Torque model is what is created when a company that is usually characterized by restrained and calculated products decides to remove all barriers
Antec may sell mainly thanks to its solid, quiet and affordable packages that belong to the diverse P series, but that does not mean that it has no potential to surprise, go wild and innovate - and for that very purpose was created The semi-open Torque chassis, Which is more like a futuristic motorcycle than other products in the company's arsenal.
The Torque was first unveiled as a prototype a few months ago, but is now ready in its final version and even coming to stores - although the price tag is one that quickly reminds that this is a product for enthusiasts Modding And ultra-extreme design.
The Torque was created to mark the tenth anniversary of the The famous Skeleton chassis, Which was one of the first open air systems in the world and one of those that caused this category to gain momentum among hardware enthusiasts thanks to the combination of unusual appearance and performance Cooling Deserve.
The new piece is designed to do the same, with an extreme emphasis on the visual design aspect. The front part is made of aluminum and looks almost like a standard case, but on the back are two 4-mm hardened glass plates exposing the components to the world's air (or room), while the position of the power supply at the bottom provides a forward tilt of the whole structure, Come on anytime.
The look should not detract from the performance and flexibility of use, it seems, because in the Torque you will find space for up to three 120 millimeter fans or alternatively a radiator of up to 360 millimeters at the top and space for the same massive array at the front - in addition to supporting Mini-ITX, ATX and some boards The E-ATX, support for graphics cards up to 450 millimeters long, support for cooling Processors Extra large with a height of up to 215 millimeters and support all power supplies in the ATX configuration, with a height of 86 millimeters and a width of 150 millimeters as defined in the standard.
The Torque is without a doubt one of the most impressive and special cases we have encountered this year, but unfortunately it is also reflected in its price - which officially stands at $ 350, which may explain why it is currently not available in local stores, but only through personal personal import. Will make the final price higher. We will be content with dreams at this stage - and we hope that inAntec Will find a method and a way to offer a similar style to the masses in the future, at a slightly more reasonable price.
