After our leak yesterday our friends at Antec wanted to point out a few things to us about the new Signature S10 Chassis and gave us all of the details we wanted on the companies newest flagship case! So to start out with the case will primarily be made of aluminum and steel and Antec’s goal with the case was to make a “living, functional piece of art”.
The case has a very seamless design as there are not drive slots on the front at all. It has a total of four door on it, two main door and two doors to get at the storage section of the case. All of the doors are brushed aluminum, although there will be a version of the case (S10G) that will have tempered glass.
The interior of the case is separated into three chambers. Each chamber creates its own thermal zone and will have its own regulation system. The main chamber will house your motherboard and expansion cards. This section of the case supports motherboards up to Extended ATX and has 10 expansion slots. There is a modular mount up top that will fit a 280mm radiator or two 140mm fans and there is a rear 140mm fan. At the front of the interior chamber is room for three 120mm cooling fans or a 360mm radiator.
The lower chamber will house your power supply. There is also a hard drive cage down there with room for up to five solid state drives. There is room for an optional 120mm fan to keep air circulating through the chamber. There is also a pull-out fan filter at the bottom of the case.
The front of the case is meant to hold all of your hard drives. Here you can fit six 3.5-inch hard drives and three 2.5-inch hard drives. Each individual hard drive tray is tool-less, features anti-vibration rails, and is removable from the case. There is a bottom-mounted cooling fan that will blow air up to keep the drives cool.
There is also a large filter that is located between the front chamber and the rest of the case. It can easily slide out to be cleaned. There is also another filter at the top of the hard drive tower.
As we said in our last post the Signature S10 will be available exclusively at Newegg.com starting June 2nd for $499.99, then retailers worldwide starting July 1st.
