The new Antec flagship supports the latest RTX 40 Series GPUs. Considering the increasing demands for CPU and GPU cooling, Antec designed the Performance 1 FT to enhance the air intake, improve the cable routing, and enable an easy installation with various options. The new temperature display function allows to keep control of the components. The display screen located on the case top allows users to check the temperature of the GPU and CPU at a glance. It addresses the need for temperature monitoring without purchasing expensive cooling kits.

For improved cooling-performance, Antec combined the gird-shaped dust filter and combined it with the magnetic louver front panel, providing massive airflow and allow for easy maintenance. The mesh front panel adopts 1.2 mm vent holes which reaches the balance between ventilation and dust prevention. Tool-free side panels and the removable top radiator bracket make the installation very pleasant.

The Performance 1 FT supports up to 10 fans, 3 x 140 mm/120 mm fans at the top, 3 x 140 mm/120 mm fans at the front, 1 x 120 mm fan in the rear, and 3 x120mm fans at the top of the PSU shroud to enhance the cooling. It comes with three pre-installed Storm 140 mm PWM fans of 30 mm thickness at front and one Storm 120 mm PWM fan of 30 mm thickness in rear, providing highly efficient airflow and cooling performance. The fan blades are thicker and longer, efficiently increasing the air intake. The fan thickness increased from the standard 25 mm to 30 mm to efficiently enhance the air volume, upgrading the performance. The PWM function automatically detects and adjusts the fan speed for CPU heat dissipation in different environments. It also helps to decrease fan noise. The included 1 -to -3 fan splitter cable supports PWM function and makes cable routing easy. Both 4 mm edge -to -edge tempered glass side panels with drop -proof design decrease the risk of dropping during installation, as the panels come with a clip-on design and captive thumbscrews. The top and side panels can be removed easily and tool-free.
