Introduction

The Antec TX640B

Over the last month we have looked at some very nice cases from Antec’s 2005 line. The TX1050B and Titan 550 both showed to be some great products in their respective fields featuring good looks and incredible durability.

Today we’ll look at the next enclosure in Antec’s 2005 line, the TX640B, a mini ATX case that simply looks like a shrunk down TX1050B. Those of you working with limited space or wanting a small enclosure will want to check out this article.

“When Antec’s original Performance Series was launched in 1998 it started the do-it-yourself high performance computing revolution. Now we proudly introduce the third generation, Performance TX, redesigned and updated for the latest technologies. All models are designed to meet Intel’s Thermally Advanced Chassis (TAC) design guide and come with ATX12V v2.0 power supplies.”- Antec’s website.
