As expected Antec has launched its new incarnation of the open air case Skeleton. Mini Skeleton 90 is, just like big brother, more of a framework than a complete case and targets users looking for an open and easily accessible system. The design is similar to Antec’s standard model of Skeleton with a large fan on top of the case, with the great difference that it’s a lot smaller. Antec Mini Skeleton 90 is namely a mini-ITX case. The result is a very small case costing $120 and ships with 90 watt power adapter.

Antec Unveils Latest Open-Air Case: Mini Skeleton
Mini Skeleton Brings Unique Open-Air Design and Airflow to Mini-ITX Systems
FREMONT, CA–(Marketwire – June 9, 2009) – Antec, Inc., the global leader in high-performance computer components and accessories for the gaming, PC upgrade and Do-It-Yourself markets, today announced the Mini Skeleton-90, the Mini-ITX model of Antec’s popular Skeleton case. The Mini Skeleton-90 is the first open-air enclosure designed exclusively for Mini-ITX motherboards, and offers unique cooling, flexibility and style for small form factor systems.
Providing high levels of cooling, the Mini Skeleton-90 features a top-mounted 150mm TriCool™ blue LED fan and a rear 70mm fan, while the open-air frame enables greater airflow than traditional enclosures. The removable component tray provides quick, convenient access to components and allows for efficient cable routing which prevents wires from impeding airflow. The Mini Skeleton-90 includes a 90-watt adapter for 90 watts of stable and reliable power. Convenient front-mounted USB 2.0, eSATA and audio (AC’97 and HDA compatible) in and out ports offer easy multimedia connection.
For enhanced flexibility in system integration, the Mini Skeleton-90 also features five drive bays, including one 5.25″ drive bay, two 2.5″ drive bays and two 2.5″ side HDD mounts. With a 7.5″ (H) x 8.3″(W) x 9.1″(D) sized frame and 0.8mm cold rolled steel with reinforced plastic chassis, the Mini Skeleton-90 is petite as well as durable. The Mini Skeleton-90 is designed for users seeking a smaller desktop option, secondary PC or home theater PC (HTPC) that utilizes the Mini-ITX form factor. ”With the popularity of Mini-ITX motherboards rising, we wanted to develop a case that really takes advantage of the smaller form factor,” said Scott Richards, senior vice president of Antec. ”The Mini Skeleton delivers the same impressive cooling, airflow and style as the original Skeleton, in a miniature frame perfect for Mini-ITX users.” The Mini Skeleton-90 is available now for an estimated price of $119.00 through major retailers, e-tailers and distributors. The Mini Skeleton-90 is backed by Antec’s Quality 3-Year Limited Warranty. For additional product information and full technical specifications, please visit www.antec.com.
