A little birdie asked me with curiosity about Antec X1 Gaming Chassis- a case that is not listed in Antec worldwide or Antec India’s website at the time of publishing this news.
Not a lot of information was given however- except the side shot which gives a rough impression and advertised specifications on the bottom. Now there is no price quote/MRP for this case yet- or when it will be available- although the mail did use the words “With pleasure we are announcing the new launch of X1 Gaming cases in India.” Maybe its only for India/APAC? Again- no information on that. You’ve read it first In Hardware BBQ!

Apparently this case is already on sale in China for ￥149.00 and over there it is bundled with Antec Eco 450 power supply.
Interestingly, there have been few system assembled rigs with this rig that is put online in China’s online retail website “360 Buy”, although Antec India plans to announce this case during diwali.
Edit (21-11-12): The case if officially announced in the Indian market and is priced for INR 2750/-
