Antec DF-85

Cases

Conclusion

While we don’t review cases from Antec that often, they do tend to come up winners; if a little expensive. The DF-85 follows in this trend with a nigh complete feature set without any real problems. The styling may not be to everyone’s taste but the cable management, strength, cooling and noise output of this case are all rather impressive. It’s roomy, and provides almost everything you’d want in a case. The only real thing I might change is adding some clip mechanisms to replace some of the dated looking screws.

Other than that, Antec have done a great job and if you don’t mind the price I’d recommend checking out the DF-85 the next time you’re in the market for a giant chassis.

ProsCons
Good mix of gamer and enthusiast stylingA bit expensive
Great cable managementNo tooless installs

    Hola A Todos, yo tengo este case y cada vez estoy mas complacido de haberme decidido por el, si es muy costoso y mas para mi que tuve que importarlo y por su peso salio aun mas caro, pero a la larga es una inversion para quienes queremos tener lo mejor y con las mejores prestaciones, es muy silencioso con los 7 ventiladores en bajo la ventilacion es espectacular ninguno de mis 5 discos pasa de los 35ºC y ni hablar de la board, aunque para complementar esta inversion a mi core i7 2600k le puse un Thermalright Silver Arrow Dual 14cm que en 800 y 900 RPM mantiene mi CPU en 34 y 38ºC y cuando lo esfuerzo demasiado llega a los 45ºC.
    La organizacion del cableado en la tapa derecha es lo mejor, es muy espacioso y da lugar a un mayor ventilacion del interior.

    Hello To All, I have this case and every time I’m more pleased with having chosen for him, if it is too expensive and more to me that I had to import it and went about their weight even more expensive, but ultimately is an investment for those we have the best and the best performance, is very quiet with 7 fans in the ventilation is spectacular none of my 5-disc beyond 35 º C and not to mention the board, but to complement this investment to my core i7 2600K will I put a Thermalright Dual 14cm Silver Arrow in 800 and 900 RPM keeps my CPU at 34 and 38 º C and when I try too reaches 45 º C.
    The organization of the wiring at the top right is the best, is very spacious and leads to increased ventilation of the interior.
