Antec is one of the most well known PC case makers for its incredibly popular Nine Hundred and P180 cases and similar offspring, today we are looking at a new full tower chassis called the Dark Fleet DF-85. The DF-85 Black is a very unique chassis with design cues from many different cases they have built in the past from the twelve hundred to the nine hundred to even the newly announced LanBoy Air with of course features that are unique on its own too. Read on to see if this chassis has what it takes to compete in the same pricing category as the Cooler Master HAF-X!
At first look the DF-85 just looks like a Twelve Hundred with a face lift. Looks can be deceiving as we will see. The look of the DF-85 is different than any of the previous cases I have seen from Antec. The styling is not as sleek as designs I have seen from them in the past. This has a more industrial design and I think they did a nice job with it. The case is all black and sports red LED fans, another change up from previous cases.
