The P8 is an entry-level mid-tower chassis set to sell for 79 Euros including taxes when it launches at the end of July or early August. It comes with a tempered glass side panel and an internal PSU cover. Two 3.5” and four 2.5” drives are supported, and three white LED fans are supplied (two front, one rear). You can install 280mm radiators in the roof and 360mm radiators in the front, and removable dust filters cover the top, front, and bottom.
The P110, meanwhile, leans towards the more premium end of the market with a price of 119 Euros. It's set to launch at the end of August in two flavours – Silent and Luce. The two cases are mostly the same, but there are differences in the side panels and roof. The Luce has a tempered glass side panel, while the Silent switches to noise-dampening, double-layered side panels to help it live up to its name. The Antec logo at the front is backlit by RGB LEDs which a button on the I/O panel controls the colour of.
November will see the launch of some new PSUs. The HCG Pro Bronze PSUs will come in 750W and 850W flavours, both with 80 Plus Bronze efficiency, and this is upgraded to 80 Plus Gold in the HCG Pro Gold family, which will have five capacities ranging from 550W to 1,000W and a semi-passive fan for cooling. All PSUs are to be fully modular and will feature 28-pin motherboard connectors to support possible future motherboard designs.
