Measuring in at 467 mm x 220 mm x 486 mm (D x W x H), the DF600 FLUX offers an abundance of features that come with Antec’s original F-LUX platform. F-LUX Platform adopts the design of a powerful ventilation system via the lower right-side panel which pulls cool air into the case through the lower PSU shroud and then up into the main interior. The transparent front panel design with ventilation at both sides presents light effects and cooling functionality. The case comes ready-equipped with three 120 mm ARGB fans in the front, one 120mm fan in the rear and one 120 mm reverse fan on top of the PSU chamber to pull cool air into case through the ventilation at the right-side panel and at the bottom, offering a higher level of GPU cooling performance. Altogether the chassis offers space for nine fans. Moreover, the DF600 FLUX features seven reusable PCI-E Slots.
The DF600 FLUX keeps the gear cool with room for up to 360 mm radiator in the front and top, as well as a 120 mm radiator in the back. If fans are installed at outside and the radiator is installed at inside, the maximum radiator thickness is up to 55 mm, if both fans and radiator are installed at inside, the maximum radiator thickness is up to 30 mm. With the built-in LED-controller, all the addressable LEDs can be controlled (supports up to 6 x ARGB fans), alternatively users can sync it with the motherboard to enjoy more custom light effects.
