Antec GX505 Window SC Exterior Features
After opening the box, we see the Antec GX505 sandwiched in between two pieces of styrofoam and wrapped with a giant plastic bag for protection.
After we get rid of all the packaging, we are left with a shiny new Antec GX505 Window SC. This is the front of the case with the bold new design and hefty mesh grille. We can see the Antec logo and three 5.25″ bay slots. Just above the 5.25″ bays you can see the two LED lights.
Here is the back-side of the Antec GX505 Window SC. We have a pre-installed 120mm fan, some grommet pass through holes, 7 PCI expansion slots, and a bottom mount PSU.
This is the window side of the Antec GX505. The window allows a good view of your components inside the case. You also have a bit of a punched out panel on the side to give a bit more room for CPU heat sink clearance.
This is the cable management side of the GX505 Window SC. You also have a removable side panel with the same shape punched out to help with cable clearance when building your PC.
At the top of the Antec GX505 Window SC, you have a very stylish venting cover on the back end for the two pre-installed 120mm fans. At the front, we have your power, reset, headphone, mic, HDD activity LED, fan controller, and two USB 3.0 ports. The audio and USB ports have rubber covers inserted into them to help keep dust out. The power switch has a blue LED indicator to let you know when your PC is powered on.
We have a look at the belly of the GX505 Window SC, and you’ll notice rubber feet and a PSU fan filter. Right in the middle you’ll see four holes that are slightly indented into the interior of the chassis, and this is for mounting an optional 2.5″ SSD drive.
