Antec is preparing to release a new chassis variant of its SOLO II chassis. The SOLO II-G as TPU reported today:
The case dons a gunmetal front, with matte black panels. Like the original, the SOLO II-G's USP is its noise insulation, which consists of 1 mm-thick steel sheets and active noise dampening material. The rest of the SOLO II-G specifications are identical to those of the original. Measuring 470 x 205 x 440 mm, it weighs 9.1 kg. The ATX mid-tower includes two 5.25" drive bays, in addition to three ventilated 3.5"/2.5" bays that are ventilated. Most joints in the case, including the drive cages, and the fan joints, are cushioned by rubber to dampen vibrations. The case is ventilated by TrueQuiet low-noise fans. The SOLO II-G is expected to cost 13,800 JPY (US $172) in Japan, where it hits the stores on May 12.
