   With most hardware components (including mainboards, memory modules, CPU coolers and fans) and gaming peripherals (such as keyboards, mice, headsets and mouse pads) in the market currently featuring RGB LED illumination it's only natural that PC case manufacturers couldn't really stay out of the game. As a matter of fact due to the high popularity of PC cases that use tempered glass panels there are currently many models in the market that feature various RGB sources for all tastes from LED fans and single LEDs up to entire LED strips. Antec has already released some PC cases featuring RGB illumination but it wasn't until only recently that they released a spacious mid-tower that also featured a tempered glass side panel. We are of course talking about the brand new Performance Series P110 Luce and today we have it with us.

  Since the brand new P110 Luce mid-tower (compatible with mini ITX, micro ATX and ATX sized mainboards) is part of the Performance Series by Antec they have equipped it with a large number of features aside RGB LED illumination (limited to 7 colors via a LED switch) and a tempered glass side panel including an front top HDMI port (very useful for VR setups), two vertical PCI expansion slots (vertical VGA mounting position is supported), removable air-filters (front, top and bottom), adjustable VGA holder, PSU chamber, removable HDD cage and two removable single drive cages. In terms of available space the P110 Luce has nothing to be jealous from previous Performance series models since it can accommodate up to six 3.5" and/or eight 2.5" drives, front 240/280/360mm and top 240/280mm radiators, up to six 120mm fans (or 4x140mm and 1x120mm), 165mm tall CPU air coolers, 390mm long graphics cards and up to 200mm long power supply units. On paper the new P110 Luce seems to check most boxes so let's move forward with today’s review and see for ourselves.
