DP505 White: A new airflow-oriented case from Antec!

Antec DP505With this new model, Antec offers a medium tower case measuring 220 (W) x 481 (D) x 490 (H) mm. As for the weight, it will be quite heavy with its 8.1 kg on the scale, weight justified by the presence of steel, plastic and tempered glass. Inside, we will have room to install a motherboard in E-ATX format at the most. For the other components, there will be no real limitation regarding their dimensions:

  • Graphics card: 375 mm long
  • CPU fan: 170 mm high
  • Power supply: 205 mm deep with HDD cage, 410 mm without

The storage part highlights a total of four slots. In an HDD cage, we will be entitled to two 3.5″/2.5″ slots. This is complemented by two 2.5″ slots at the back of the motherboard tray.

As for the ventilation, we will be able to install up to nine fans in 120 mm. In 140 mm, the number is reduced to five fans. Finally, the compatibility with watercooling radiators is rather good with a double support in 360 mm, one in the top, the other in the front. Otherwise, we will be satisfied with models in 280 mm, 240 mm or 120 mm at the rear. For the price, nothing official for the moment, however, it should count a little more than 100 €.
