Antec

Continuing with the "unique cases" theme, we've all seen the Antec Skeleton - now, we have the Antec Mini Skeleton-90. Like the Skeleton, the Mini Skeleton features a unique open-air design, but in a tiny mini-ITX frame. The Mini Skeleton has five drive bays (1 x 5.25", 2 x 2.5" and 2 x hard disk drive mount), one half-height expansion slot, two USB2.0 front ports and audio in/out, a rear 70mm fan, and a top 150mm TriCool LED fan. The Mini Skeleton is constructed with 0.8mm cold rolled steel frame. In the photo below, you can see just how small it is compared to the original Skeleton case.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Antec also had a lot of other cases on display. In the first photo below, from left to right, is the Nine Hundred Two, Six Hundred and Twelve Hundred. In the second photo below, from left to right, is the P193 and P183. Lastly, there's the ultra-small, mini-ITX case, ISK-100. Despite being a mere 70mm wide, the ISK-100 still fits two 2.5" drives and features a perforated mesh construction with a side-mounted 100mm TwoCool Fan.

 

 

Now that we've looked at the cases, next up are the power supplies. Antec introduced a new line of power supplies called the High Current Pro Series, coming in two flavors, the HCP-1000 and HCP-1200. Both PSUs are 80 Plus Gold certified with high-current output, continuous power, all Japanese capacitors, and a hybrid cable management system featuring a 10-pin connector. The HCP-1000 features a 135mm Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) fan and four rails at 30A apiece. The HCP-1200 has a whopping eight rails at 30A apiece, but because Antec had to cram so much into the HCP-1200, they could only include an 80mm PWM fan.

 

 

 

Next up was a new addition to the TruePower Quattro Series that is sure to please overclockers with beefy rigs. The TPQ-1200 OC is 80 Plus Silver certified with six rails at 38A apiece, and features an 80mm PWM fan, hybrid cable management, and PowerCache, "a high-performance capacitor that delivers an extra power reserve where and when users need it most." The star of the show, however, is located on the back of the PSU. Not only does the TPQ-1200 OC contain an adjustable PSU cooling fan speed control knob, but also a +12V output voltage knob that allows you to adjust the voltage from 11.8V to 12.6V. Thankfully, the TPQ-1200 OC also has short circuit protection (SCP), over voltage protection (OVP), under voltage protection (UVP), and over current protection (OCP).

 

 

Lastly, there's an entry in the new High Current Gamer Series, the HCG-900. The HCG-900 is 80 Plus Bronze certified, providing 900 watts of continuous power over four rails at 40A apiece. It features a 135mm double ball bearing cooling fan and Japanese capacitors.
