Offering an industry-leading design of advanced ventilation, the second model of this series is taking the thermal performance of the Antec Dark Series to a new level. The DP502 FLUX will soon reach store shelves and online retail outlets in Europe with a competitive MSRP of 79 Euros.

Measuring in at 463 mm x 220 mm x 486 mm (D x W x H), the DP502 FLUX offers an abundance of features that come with Antec’s original F-LUX platform. The F-LUX Platform adopts the design of a powerful ventilation system via the lower right-side panel which pulls cool air into the case through the lower PSU shroud and then up into the main interior. The case comes ready-equipped with three 120 mm ARGB fans in the front, one 120mm fan in the rear and one 120 mm reverse fan on top of the PSU chamber to pull cool air into case through the ventilation at the right-side panel and at the bottom, offering a higher level of GPU cooling performance.
Altogether the chassis offers space for nine fans. Moreover, the DP502 FLUX features seven reusable PCI-E Slots. The 4mm tempered glass side panel features a tool-free thumbscrew design at the rear, which gives quick access to the interior and enhances the solidity. With 34,5 mm in the front an 26,5 mm in the rear, the case offers sufficient space for cable management.
The DP502 FLUX keeps the gear cool with room for up to 360 mm radiator in the front and top (max. radiator length of 405 mm) as well as a 120 mm radiator in the back. If fans are installed at outside and the radiator is installed at inside, the radiator thickness can be up to 55 mm, if both fans and radiator are installed in the inside, the radiator thickness can be up to 30 mm.
Radiator options on top are as follows:
without the ODD and when the bracket is removed: 240 mm / 280 mm / 360 mm

when the ODD is installed: 120 mm
With the built-in LED-controller, all the addressable LEDs can be controlled (supports up to 6 x ARGB fans), alternatively users can sync it with the motherboard to enjoy more custom light effects. Furthermore, the DP502 FLUX offers space for one 5,25” ODD – which can be removed for radiator installation or other configurations – three convertible 3.5″ HDDs or two 2.5” SSDs, three 2.5″ SDDs as well as seven expansion slots.
