Rotterdam, the Netherlands, June 16th 2015 – Antec’s P50 WINDOW is the perfect combination of compactness and optimal airflow due to its sophisticated two-compartment architecture. The cube-shaped case with its dimensions of 312(H) x 260(W) x 330(D) mm features a two-compartment design that separates the power supply unit, the optical drive and the hard drives from the other components. Accordingly, the included fans (2 x 120mm and 1 x 80mm) offer more efficient cooling than within ordinary enclosures due to the fact that they are focussed on parts that heat up during operation.

Quiet Computing due to dual-layer side panels

Numerous routing holes in the central dividing wall offer various possibilities for a clean cable layout, ensuring an ideal airflow through the cube-shaped enclosure of the P50 WINDOW. The dual-layer side panels made from Polycarbonate eliminate vibrations from within the chassis and render the Antec P50 WINDOW whisper-quiet – even with up to seven rotating fans. The cube-layout of the enclosure features mounts for four more fans (2 x 80mm at the back and 2 x 120mm at the top) in addition to three included cooling fans at the front.

Small cube with ample space

The cube-shaped chassis is compatible with Micro ATX and Mini ITX mainboards. Despite its compact dimensions, the P50 WINDOW offers space for cards up to lengths of 300mm in its four PCI-E slots. This makes Antec’s enclosure a great choice for demanding gamers who can fit high-end graphics cards such as the ATI R9 290 and the Nvidia GTX 960 within the Quiet Computing chassis. The maximum support height for the CPU cooler is 130mm. The mount for the optical drive can be removed to allow the installation of a water-cooling system with two radiators up to 240mm.

Compact, convenient and functional

To offer generous hard-disk space, numerous mounts are available. Two 2.5” SSDs and three 3.5” HDDs can be installed in the Antec P50 WINDOW without using any tools. One of the two compartments can be fitted with an ATX power supply unit that is kept dust-free by an air filter at the back of the enclosure. Another filter prevents dust from getting in at the front. Both are washable and reliably keep the P50 WINDOW clean.

All four walls of the chassis can be removed to grant quick access to all components, making maintenance quick and easy. The front panel features two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports as well as connections for speakers and microphones. Another highlight of the P50 WINDOW is the fan control at the front: With two switches, the fans inside the compact enclosure can be adjusted in steps.

Antec’s cube-shaped Quiet Computing enclosure P50 WINDOW is available from today, the recommended retail price is £59.99 including VAT. Top panels (meshs) are available as optional accessories in colours blue, green, red and white at £6.99 including VAT each.
