    "Antec's new Skeleton chassis is meant for gamers and perpetual tinkerers."
    Because gamers want an exposed motherboard! :sick:

    But seriously, it looks good for tweakers/benching, but probably not the best for a 24/7 rig.

    ill take the hspc tech station anyday.

    a gamer wont want all his gear dusty.

    thats totally useless as a tinker station as its got all the skeleton over it.

    Gamers can clean as well as game, dust gets everywhere, even into cases.

    No pun intended I hope, lol.

    i wouldn't mind that.. not at all.

    needs wheels though... handles wouldn't go astray.
    :)

    could make a good LAN case with those features, can imagine it being very light.

    I reckon with a bit of clear perspex and a 240mm rad on the left side of the base, that thing could actually be made into a pretty sweet rig.

    true, would be nicer... though it would probably restrict airflow somewhat..

    though yeah, looks like it could have a fair bit of mod-ability lol

    Whats missing is corner posts of some sort to facilitate stacking of units :)
    More sophistication would also see this design be constructed from a number of toolfree components (perhaps to allow partial frame to provide stacking as well as "fiddling".).

    For some reason it reminds me of the Sydney opera house, i still prefer the Danger Den torture rack by far though.

    Would not work well for anyone who puts the PC below the desk line.

    Knock something off the desk and its likely gonna go into the hardware, anything metallic would be fairly bad in that event.

    It needs a VESA mounting bracket on one side so that you can directly attach your screen to the case ;)

    Wow, I can't decide if the Antec guys are on crack or a bunch of geniuses.

    I do like the mini skeleton for my test rig.

    not really a case anymore is it.

    good for benchtest rig, nothing more. would hate to maintain that, not to mention how much more dust you would notice...

    Thats a interesting design. You would have a 360mm Rad on the "bottom" side, wih a res above thatt and perhaps a pump infront of the PSU or something like that.

    Would be good as a Lan rig... just to make your e-pins bigger.

    looks cool, nice enough design.

    might as well leave all your computer parts just sitting on your desk or something tho. wouldnt look as good, but just as useful haha
