Antec ISK600 Review

Antec-ISK600 (6)

So, what do you get when you get the ISK600 from Antec?

Up front you get some seriously sleek looks.  The front of the case features a slim optical drive bay up top.  Towards the bottom, you see a single USB3.0 port and USB 2.0 port.  These are kept company by Audio In/Out and some cut out buttons for Power and Reset.  LED enhanced lighting indicates power in a very cool way.  The flat black color along with the blue LED accent adds that extra bit of flair in all the right ways.  The Antec logo in the upper right hand corner is carved into the bezel.

Either side of the front bezel acts as intake for cool, fresh air and transitions smoothly to the sides of the case.  Each side of the lid sports a honeycombed intake to help keep your large video card (on the left) and your PSU (on the right) cool.  Personally, I would have preferred a larger area on the left side to provide large video cards (like those of us with R9s) with dual cooling fans to pull plenty of cool air.  Instead the area is limited to just a small section.  When cooling your rig with air, the rear fan will help to pull air through the system.

The bottom of the ISK600 sports some small rubber feet, absent of any style.  Personally, I wouldn’t mind at all if we found some stereo style feet similar to that of the SilverStone Grandia GD08 HTPC case.

Around back, the case is pretty simple.  There is a single Antec 120mm exhaust fan, the I/O cutout for your motherboard, a power plug, and dual expansion ports for those dual slot video cards we have come to love.

SilverStone FT05 Review

If you are a case designer or manufacturer, you must be asking what can you do to differentiate yourself from the rest of the herd? After all, there are a ton of cases out there, but what will make yours stand out? Some may use fancy graphics, some will do it with price, and others will go right back to the drawing board. Computer cases have fundamentally stayed the same over the years. Outside of some minor changes like the PSU being moved from the top to the bottom, there isn't much to guess about. Well, SilverStone has some ideas that may be able to change the way you look at your computer case.
