Antec Sonata Elite PC case

Antec has introduced its new Sonata Elite to its lineup of quiet PC cases aimed at those who like to put together PCs themselves. The Sonata Elite sports seven drive bays and seven expansion slots in a two-layer steel design with plastic side and top panels meant to eliminate unwanted noise. The use of silicone grommets is likewise employed to quell vibration and any associated noise, while two large, 120mm fans spin at slower speeds to develop the same amount of airflow as smaller blades would deliver at higher, louder speeds. Removable and washable filters make cleaning an easier task.

The case supports Mini-ITX, MicroATX and standard ATX motherboards and includes two front-mounted USB, one eSATA and HD-compatible audio in and out ports. The drive bays are split between three 5.25-inch and four 3.5-inch slots, with one 5.25-to-3.5-inch adapter included to configure one of the external bays to accommodate a 3.5-inch drive.

The Sonata Elite is available for purchase online now, priced at nearly $120. [via Twice]
