Antec DF 30



The DF-30 continues the impressive trend set by the more expensive DF-85 offering exceptional cooling performance and visual appeal with its all-black and slightly futuristic styling.

Of course there is room for improvement, but only in minor areas. For instance, the jacks have no labelling, the PCI slot covers cannot be replaced and the side panels are sometimes a little trickier than they should be to re-attach. I wouldn’t mind seeing a few motherboard holes either for extra cable management either.

Considering the case as a whole though, the positives far outweigh the negatives with neat features in the form of the hot-swappable 2.5” bay and fleet doors making the Antec DF-30 one of the better options available.
