Taipei, Taiwan - Oct. 24, 2023 - Advanced Performance Nexus (APNX), a new player in the computer components market, is proud to announce the global release of the APNX C1 gaming case. The premium mid-tower ATX case brings together a beautiful new look with a one-piece mesh panel that wraps around the front and right-side panel, robust build quality, and impressive out-of-the-box cooling performance with its 4x pre-installed 120mm FP1 PWM ARGB fans. Available in black, white, and two-toned ChromaFlair, the C1 starts at MSRP $139 USD.

APNX is comprised of teams across Taiwan and Europe with over 20 years of experience in product development in the gaming and PC hardware space. APNX is one of nine brands from the group, Pro Gamersware, and benefits from the combined resources, expertise, and investment in the formation of its products.

"This launch is a historical moment for our team," said Tony Lin, CEO of APNX. " APNX is our first chance to collaborate and put everything we’ve learned into a single brand. So far, everyone’s expectations have been exceeded."

The APNX C1: Reliable Performance, Economical Elegance

The C1’s curved edges, smooth finish, and toolless paneling make for a comfortable building experience regardless of how you want to build. The front L-shaped mesh panel gives the C1 its unique look and excellent thermal efficiency as the large mesh area optimizes front and side airflow.

The C1 case is designed to perform right out of the box. 4x pre-installed 30mm APNX FP1 fans come in the case, delivering a boost to thermals without the need to buy separately. The FP1 reaches an impressive and efficient 86.9 CFM airflow with up to 1600 RPM; a performance boost of 30-50% over regular 25mm fans.

The C1 provides perforated front, side, and top panels for multiple cooling configurations. The interior allows for up to dual 360mm radiator support, 11 fan slots, clearance for even the biggest graphics cards, and an optional GPU card holder and riser cable kit (sold separately). If you want to go for a clean build, the removable cable management sidebar on the motherboard backplate will help to funnel and hide your cables. If removed, you open up a bracket for additional fan or radiator options, which offers a further boost to cooling performance over the stock configuration.

Other features include:

  • 8mm panels thickness made of SGCC and SECC steel
  • I/O panel ports: 2x USB 3.0 type-A, 1x USB 3.0 type-C, and a 3.5mm audio jack
  • Two removable dust filters - one behind the front panel, and the other under the case
  • Rubber grommets and Velcro straps for cable management
  • GPU Card Kit provides a cardholder and riser cable (sold separately)

The C1 case will be sold at an MSRP at US$139 for black or white, and MSRP at US$159 for ChromaFlair. Availability may vary by region.

What Else is In the APNX Fall Line-up?

Along with the launch of the FP1 case fan - that comes included in the C1 case - is the aftermarket FP2 case fan. Like its FP1 cousin, the FP2’s 30mm design outperforms standard 25mm fans and is the best overall performer in the FP fan series. The FP2 comes encased in a premium steel plate frame and includes a reverse flow blade to let you customize your airflow direction.

The other cooling option is APNX’s AP1-V air tower cooler. The AP1-V boasts a 5-heatpipe design cased inside a professional-grade aluminum alloy frame, and a powerful 245W TDP to handle heavy workloads compared to its size.
