Default Antec Dark Fleet DF-85 Case Video Tech Byte

A quick look (tech byte) at the Antec Dark Fleet DF-85 Gaming Case


YouTube - Antec Dark Fleet DF-85 Gaming Case Tech Byte



Awful, Lighting & Awful Audio I know
Won't be using that room for quick videos anymore that's for sure.

Ah didn't get a chance to read through it.
Yup, it definitely screams Cooler Master design, but almost feels half finished.
And the fact they want around $180 for it when a person can get the HAF-X for $199.. no contest.


Maybe if it was price in the $125 range it might be a viable alternative but just isn't doing it for anyone.

No amount of photo lighting could make that thing look any better.

Only room for 7 pci slot mobos in a over-sized full tower? What were they thinking!?
Actually whats up with those plastic latches in the front and that god awfull IO panel hump on the front (making it even taller!)?

Really looks like they took 4 cases and melted it down into one....bad case.

My friend was looking at this for a build, good thing I told him to look at the HAF cases. HAF X sounds like a fun build.

This case... looks terrible, and they even used the same window from the 900/1200 ?

Is it me or Antec's design team is losing it.

Yeah and the case looks awful too!


Sorry FiXT, couldn't stop myself.

EDIT: Will we be seeing more of your mug in new reviews? It makes them more personable and identifiable, IMHO.
