    Default Antec Skeleton

    hey all! im new to D.I.Y rigs but i got all the basic stuff in mind and the other day in PCFormat i came across the antec skeleton case, now i was over the moon about this as it is perfect for me. it looks big but it fits perfectly in my cabinet (im 14 with a small-ish room) and if ever i considered overclocking it would obviously help a bit.
    Anyway, to the point, does anybody know the release date and approximate price of it?

    thanks in advance

    Nothing that a can of compressed air can't cure once a week

    Interesting case.......it's not quite a tech station because access is a bit restricted, and it's not quite a case. Some type of hybrid in a way. Funky looking but I wonder how functional it is. But I do like that big arse fan on top

    i dont mind as long as i can clean it cheaply, im patient with things like that

    how long will compressed air can last and how much will it cost?

    Also, i think it is the opposite of restricted, i watched a video of some guy filing it with components in 5 minutes, and it has a tray that slides out with your mobo and components its a perfect fit for my cabinet length depth and width wise, although i have a 1 meter width allowance

    Can of compressed air costs about $8 or so, should last a few months if all you're doing is doing little spray once a weeks.

    For sure

    Only thing about the Skeleton is that there are better tech stations out there, so it occupies a really weird market segment I think. There certainly are people that would use it (I'd give it a try!) but it's like it's stuck between being a bench test setup and a case. I dunno........

    i think its amazing, i mean ive heard of people not having a case on their overclocked rigs and ive even heard of custom modded cases a bit like this, but this is the first production case of its sort i have seen from manufacturers like antec.

    For sure, I'd love to get my hands on it when it's released and do a full review on it. I'm currently working on a review of the HSPC Top Deck Tech Station, it's more of a "true" tech station and open as well. Check back in a week or so and the review will be up, let us know what you think

    Definitely get an aftermarket heatsink for that CPU, no question. Thermalright 120 Ultra/Extreme are both good, and the Noctua NH-U12P is top notch as well, comes with a silent fan whereas the Thermalright does not.

    Ya you should. The heatsink is in direct contact with the CPU and draws heat away. That fan on top will help take the warm air away, it won't directly cool the CPU. So if you have a decent CPU heatsink then that fan will also help and you'll get some great temps

    Ya but it'll dissipate easily with that open air case, shouldn't be a problem at all.
