We have been reviewing Antec cases for quite some time here at ThinkComputers. While most Antec cases are revolutionary and have many features you just don’t find on other cases they really are plain cases in the sense that they are not that flashy or stylish at all. Well Antec has a case that is anything but ordinary. This case looks nothing like any other case out there and it seems weird coming from a company like Antec, but remember most of their cases really are revolutionary and this one sure is. So without further ado I present the Skeleton Case from Antec!

The Skeleton comes in Antec’s simplistic retail packaging that has a sketch of the Skeleton on the front and a slogan that says, “Think Beyond the Box”. One of the side sides there is a little bit of information, but not much.
Opening up the box we can see that everything is nicely packed inside and protected with large pieces of Styrofoam. Getting everything out of the box we have the Skeleton case, hard drive mounts, the front fan, mounting screw, cable ties, and a getting started guide.
