ANUAL

Congratulations on your purchase of the Antec Dark Fleet DF-85.

Your DF-85 is the gaming case re-envisioned, with all the award-winning build quality that made Antec cases famous and plenty of airy, wide-open expandability with 14 total drive bays and 7 expansion slots. Fleet-

Release™ front drive bays allow swift customization of front fan and drive configurations and easy access to tool-less, washable fan filters. A top-mounted hot-swappable SATA (SSD-compatible) drive bay plus Fleet-

Swap™ SATA drive interfaces offer blazing fast throughput with superb convenience.

The DF-85 comes without a power supply. Make sure you choose a power supply that is compatible with your computer components and has a long enough power harness to reach your motherboard and peripheral devices.

We recommend our High Current, Signature Series, TruePower Quattro, TP New, or CP Series power supplies for the latest ATX specification compliance, broad compatibility, and power savings capability.

At Antec, we continually refine and improve our products to ensure the highest quality. As such, your new case may differ slightly from the description in this manual. This isn't a problem; it's simply an improvement. As of the date of publication, all features, descriptions, and illustrations in this manual are correct.

Disclaimer

This manual is intended only as a guide for Antec’s computer enclosures. For more comprehensive instructions on installing the motherboard and peripherals, please refer to the user’s manuals that come with those components.

B EFORE Y OU B EGIN

In order to ensure that your building experience with the Dark Fleet DF-85 will be a positive one, please take note of the following:

 While working inside your Dark Fleet DF-85, keep your case on a flat, stable surface. Make sure your build environment is clean, well-lit, and free of dust.

 Antec cases feature rounded edges that minimize the occurrence of hand injuries. Nonetheless, exercise caution and control when handling case interiors. We strongly recommend taking the appropriate time and care when working inside the case. Avoid hurried or careless motions. Please use reasonable precaution.

 Handle components and cards with care. Do not touch the components or contacts on a card. Hold a card by its edges. Hold a component such as a processor by its edges, never by its pins.

 To avoid electrostatic discharge, ground yourself periodically by touching an unpainted metal surface

(such as a connector or screw on the back of this computer) or by using a wrist grounding strap.

 Before you connect a cable, ensure that both connectors are correctly aligned and oriented. Bent pins can be difficult to fix and may require replacement of the entire connector.

 This manual is not designed to cover CPU, RAM, or expansion card installation. Please consult your motherboard manual for specific mounting instructions and troubleshooting. Before proceeding, check the manual for your CPU cooler to find out if there are steps you must take before installing the motherboard.

 Do not sit on your case. Although it is constructed of heavy-duty steel and internally reinforced, it is not designed to support the weight of an adult, and may buckle.

 Remember to use the right tools for each task. Do not use improvized screwdrivers like coins, nails or knife blades as they may result in damage to screw threads or even injury. Do not use your fingernails to separate edges or lift the sides of the case, as paint chipping or injury may occur.

L OCATING A ND P OSITIONING Y OUR C OMPUTER

Your DF-85 has backwards- and top-facing exhaust fans, as well as front-mounted intake fans and one sidemounted front air intake. For optimum performance, we recommend leaving the front air intakes unobstructed.

When open, the DF-85’s Fleet-Release™ doors take up an additional 15.5 cm of space in the front. Since loading and unloading the DF-85’s internal Fleet-Swap™ SATA bays through the doors will require opening and closing them, you may wish to leave space in front of the computer open for this purpose.

The DF-85 comes with a top 2.5” Hot Swap drive bay. While it’s in a handy location, we do not recommend that users put any liquid-containing items (drinks, ice cream, coffee, perfume, etc.) on the drive bay. It was not designed for storage purposes.

R EWIRING M OTHERBOARD H EADER C ONNECTIONS

There may come a time when you need to reconfigure the pin-out of a motherboard header connector.

Examples could be for your USB header, audio input header, or some other front panel connector such as the

Power Button connector.

Before performing any work, please refer to your motherboard user’s manual or your motherboard manufacturer's website to confirm the pin-out needed for your connector. We strongly recommend making a notated drawing before beginning work so that you can recover if your work gets disturbed.

Front panel headers

1. Determine which wires you need to remove in order to rewire your plug to match the USB pin-outs on your motherboard (refer to your motherboard user’s manual). Working on one connector at a time, use a very small flathead screwdriver or similar tool to lift up on the black tab located beside the gold posts (squares). This will allow you to easily slide out the pins from the USB plug.

2. Working carefully so as not to damage the wires, connectors, or pins, slowly remove the pin from the connector. Repeat these steps for each wire you need to change.

3. Working carefully so as not to damage the wires, connectors or pins, slowly insert the pin into the correct slot of the connector then snap closed the black tab that was lifted in step 1. Repeat these steps for each wire you need to change.

Note: The rear TwoCool™ fans have a two-speed switch that lets you choose between quiet or maximum cooling.

Note: The minimum voltage to start a typical TwoCool™ fan is 5V. We recommend that you set the fan speed to High if you choose to connect the fan(s) to a fan control device or to the

Fan-Only connector found on some Antec power supplies. A fan control device regulates the fan speed by varying the voltage, which may start as low as 4.5V to 5V. Connecting a

TwoCool™ fan set on Low to a fan-control device may result in the fan not being able to start because the already lowered voltage from the fan control device will be further reduced by the TwoCool™ circuitry below 5V.

4.5

O PTIONAL F ANS

There is one optional 120mm fan mount on the left side panel. A fan can be placed here to enhance graphics card cooling. We recommend using Antec 120mm TriCool™ fans and setting the speed to Low. This fan brings cool air into the case.
