Breathe easy with Antec's open-air PC case

Claiming to be the world's first open air PC case, the exposed casing also serves a practical purpose to keep the components cool.

I've always maintained that PC case mods are strictly a geek guy thing. Case in point, so to speak: can you see a tech chick digging that Toilet PC with (faux?) um, stuff, dribbling down the sides? Sweet. Or the Pumpkin PC complete with R.I.P. tombstone keyboard and skeleton mouse? Err, nice.

Hello Kitty mods are the exception, naturally. Unless you plan to get mauled by Sanrio feline-frenzied fangirls, which might be a fantasy for some guys.

So blow me over. Finally, here's an enclosure I might actually get to like--the Antec Skeleton. It may be hardcore in every sense of the word, but it sure looks purty as art decor. Claiming to be the world's first open-air PC case, the exposed casing also serves a practical purpose to keep the components cool. Though on the subject of practical, let's talk about dust management.

The aptly named Skeleton is made of 0.8mm cold-rolled steel, with a front 92mm fan, a top three-speed 250mm fan with multicolor LED customization, layered component trays, rackmount quality side rails, seven expansion slots, and space for four drive bays. As for the price, the Web site states only that it's "coming." Soon, we hope.
