Antec has first shown off their upcoming Crown Mini-ITX PC Chassis in Cebit last month, but now thanks to our forum member AceModder we now have pictures of this new chassis both inside and out, showing both a unique design a clean aesthetic.    

Below we can see that the outside of this case is clad in aluminium panels, which are screwed onto the side of the main chassis. It looks like these panels should be available in a variety of colours and should be easily paint-able by any potential modders.

At the left-hand side of the chassis there is the power on button, but other than that there are no external IO options, though users will have very easy access to your motherboard's rear IO. 

This case has 4 windows on the front, sides and top, each of which is designed to showcase specific components, with the left window showcasing your GPU, the right window showcasing your CPU cooler and the front window showing your motherboard and SSDs.

Right now we do not know when Antec plans on releasing this case, or what price point they are aiming for, but we do have more pictures of this chassis and its black variant on the OC3D Forums

 

Special thanks to Forum Member AceModder for showing this upcoming Antec PC case.

Cant say it looks very good or efficient with regards to the design.

Then again Im not employed to create such things anyways.Quote

IMO i don't think it looks that good and i don't like how the way you have to put the HDD trays in also IMO this case is going to be a big dust magnet.Quote

Not really digging that exterior design. The case needs a slimmer profile to pull off those front curves, ala the Bitfenix Pandoras. At that thickness, it'll probably look better going for a unified, curved corners look like the TJ-07. It's like their design language is all scrambled up.

Really liking that internal layout, though. Seems to be very efficient for the water cooling and storage capacity it provides. It's been a while since there was something fresh in this regard.Quote

One thing I can see that needs a slight change would be that the slot for the GPU power cable needs to be moved up a bit so its closer to the card meaning less cable would be on show. That said I'd imagine it'd be messy with a full GPU. What kind of GPUs can you fit in it?Quote

You can fit all GPU's that are dual slot thick, lengthwise no issue all cards on the market will fit, note that on these images the card used is a short card in terms of the length so the cable is showing more as it's having to feed upwards. With a longer card this will be less so.

Here is a crudely paint drawn image of a longer card with an 8pin power connector in orange.
The red arrow shows how the cable will come out and should be right in place.
