OC3D Review: Antec Skeleton

Classed as an enclosure and not a case, the Antec Skeleton attempts to redfine where we mount our hardware. Can it replace the tower case? We find out...

Just had a quick flick through and it seems you had the same experiences as a lot of review places. The height for coolers is just appauling design tbh..

You got lots of interesting angles in there, Nice one!

is there no +,*, - at the end?

To be quite honest the case was a total PITA the photograph as the weather is so glum lately getting any natural light is difficult .

I don't go in for the +, *, - m8, a simple hyphen '-' will do for me .

Sorry dude, When I looked at it just now I had no good, bad, mediocre at the end, but it seems to be there now

Spot on, can't believe Antec didn't bother thinking about coolers, frankly an insane oversight.

Plus a plastic case for that price? Pull the other one, it has bells on

That PCI bracket is something else... I find that just as horrible as the fact you can't mount a decent HS&F in there. It's just so out of place and like you say, just looks like someone from Antec was looking at the finished product and thought "OH F*CK"!!" and quickly had to bodge something on there before his boss came in to take a look.

Massive shame. That case/enclosure/thing had so much pottential. Really can't beleive that they've made such epic blunders on it considering the popularity and attention to detail of their 'normal' cases.

Hopefully, it will stimulate the industry and we'll get some improved versions soon.

I really like the look, but they have made some massive blunders in the design and implemetation.
