APNX, an emerging player in the computer components market, is thrilled to announce the global launch of their new product, the APNX C1 gaming case.

This premium mid-tower ATX case combines a fresh and appealing design featuring a seamless one-piece mesh panel wrapping around the front and right-side panel, robust construction, and exceptional out-of-the-box cooling performance thanks to its four pre-installed 120 mm FP1 PWM ARGB fans. The C1 is available in black, white, and a two-toned ChromaFlair version, with prices starting at an MSRP of $139 USD.

APNX comprises teams in Taiwan and Europe with a collective experience of over two decades in product development within the gaming and PC hardware domain. As one of the nine brands under the Pro Gamersware group, APNX leverages combined resources, expertise, and investment to craft its products.

Tony Lin, CEO of APNX, expressed his excitement about this milestone: “This launch marks a significant moment for our team. APNX represents our first opportunity to collaborate and consolidate all our knowledge into a single brand. So far, we have surpassed everyone’s expectations.”

The APNX C1: A Trustworthy Performer with an Elegant Affordability

The C1 stands out with its curved edges, sleek finish, and toolless panel design, ensuring a hassle-free building experience for any preferred setup. Its distinctive front L-shaped mesh panel not only adds to its unique appearance but also enhances thermal efficiency by optimizing front and side airflow.

The C1 case is engineered to deliver strong performance right out of the box, thanks to the inclusion of four pre-installed 30mm APNX FP1 fans, providing a significant boost to thermal management without the need for separate purchases. These FP1 fans offer an impressive and efficient 86.9 CFM airflow, with speeds of up to 1600 RPM, translating to a 30-50% performance improvement compared to standard 25 mm fans.

This case offers perforated front, side, and top panels, facilitating various cooling setups. The interior supports dual 360 mm radiators, features 11 fan slots, accommodates even the largest graphics cards, and offers optional GPU card holder and riser cable kits (available separately). For those aiming for a clean build, the removable cable management sidebar on the motherboard backplate aids in cable organization. Its removal opens up space for additional fans or radiators, further enhancing cooling performance beyond the stock configuration.

Additional features include:

  • 8 mm thick panels constructed from SGCC and SECC steel.
  • I/O panel ports: 2x USB 3.0 type-A, 1x USB 3.0 type-C, and a 3.5 mm audio jack.
  • Two removable dust filters, one behind the front panel and another beneath the case.
  • Rubber grommets and Velcro straps to facilitate cable management.
  • The optional GPU Card Kit provides a cardholder and riser cable (available separately).

Price and Availability

The C1 case is priced at an MSRP of $139 for the black or white options and $159 for the ChromaFlair variant. Availability may vary by region.
