Today we get to work with the Ultimate Gaming PC by taking a look at the Antec Torque case in more detail, and beginning to plan the layout for our EK custom water cooling components.

While there are some things I definitely think can be improved, and I do think the case is a little overpriced for what you get (or don’t get). All in all, I don’t see any reason so far not to recommend it, but we’ll see how things go as the build progresses.

The Good:
Looks awesome
Heaps of space to work with
Solid build quality (apart from the GPU mount)
Clever modular design makes it exceptionally accessible to build in

The Average:
Too expensive for what you get
No fans included
No fan controller included
No provision for cable management
Minimal support for drives

The Bad:
Terrible GPU mounting bracket design
