Antec has decided to step into the charitable arena, giving lucky US residents the chance to bid on a pair of uniquely customised cases - and do good for victims of the Haiti earthquake.
Launched at the tail end of last week, the company's auctions - details of which are available on the Antec Facebook page
- last until the 15th of April, and the proceeds go towards the Haiti earthquake relief fund via the charity AmeriCares.
The first case up for auction in the name of charity is dubbed the Bullet
, and is a modified version of Antec's Six Hundred case and features a hand-finished polished exterior and custom front intake featuring three 120mm fans. A custom machined aluminium side panel featuring the Antec logo and a top vented billet panel - replacing the Six Hundred's usual smoked acrylic 'moonroof' - complete the rather snazzy case.
The second custom case is based around the Antec Nine Hundred Two and has been christened the Starfire
. Eschewing the monochrome charms of the Bullet, the Starfire is an apple-red beast with a massive 200mm fan mounted in a custom aluminium top grill to enhance the case's cooling performance. Again, a custom aluminium side panel featuring the company's logo is included.
Both cases are the work of veteran case modder Bill Owen, so lucky bidders can rest assured they're getting a one-of-a-kind case oozing quality - and doing their bit for a good cause into the bargain.
Sadly, while US residents are treated to free shipping should they be lucky enough to win either auction, Antec hasn't offered any idea on how much an international bidder would have to part with in postage in order to get their hands on their prize.
Are you itching to get bidding on a truly custom case - and benefit a charitable cause into the bargain - or are you disappointed that Antec seems to have forgotten about its international customers? Share your thoughts over in the forums
