Antec Skeleton Open Air PC Case ReviewFri, Dec 12, 2008 - 12:00 AM
The Antec Skeleton PC Chassis
An Antec case could be considered the gold standard for a case that can take a beating. When an enthusiast hears the Antec name they tend to think heavy and built like a tank. Well, the newest offering from Antec, the Skeleton, is not your normal Antec case. In fact it is nothing like what we are used to seeing from Antec; it more closely resembles a test bench with a little flair than a traditional case. With the open air design the Skeleton is a complete 180 degree turn from what one would consider to be a case for a “daily driver” system. We first saw the Antec Skeleton in person at NVISION 08, so if you have seen it on the site in the past you are not going crazy. Before I get too far let’s take a look at the specifications and features for the Skeleton.

The Skeleton comes packed in normal Antec style: heavy duty cardboard box with an image of the case with dramatic lighting on the sides.
Inside the box we can see the Skeleton is packed quite nicely in foam and wrapped in plastic.
