Good for APU, not good for GPU

Andrew W., Newegg
23 February 2015
  • Summary: My rig: AMD A10-6800K ASRock FM2A78M-ITX Corsair CX750M 16GB GSkill DDR3 WD Blue 2TB EVGA Nvidia GTX750ti
  • Pros: Good for the price, will fit a standard ATX PSU. I am running a 750w Corsair since it was on sale at the same time as this case. Running an APU only leaves lots of airflow, and using a small form factor PSU would free up space to stack drives and make a nice HTPC/NAS.
  • Cons: Misleading "3x3.5 inch Bays". There is one detachable tray/bay holder for a single 3.5 HDD and another detachable tray for 2x2.5 inch SSDs. The other 3.5 inch drives can be bolted to the inner frame of the case or under the actual tray. They mention Aluminum, but the case is a heavy steel frame w...

Decent mini-ITX case, not good for gaming PC

Michael J., Newegg
18 January 2015
  • Summary: I wouldn't recommend buying this case for a gaming PC. Why Antec decided to put the side vent holes towards the front of the case rather than the rear to aid in cooling your video card, I don't know.
  • Pros: Decent amount of interior space LEDs don't look like they belong at a rave Can fit a good-sized video card Easy to assemble
  • Cons: LED runs off molex power No instructions for mounting optical drive Poor airflow, vent holes at wrong side of the case No additional fan mounts

A great case that should be an excellent one.

Jarrod G., Newegg
11 November 2014
  • Summary: The ISK 600 is another great case in a long line of Antec products that always meet my expectations. Unfortunately, some of those expectations are small little flaws that can be easily corrected to make what is currently a "great" case an excellent one.
  • Pros: The case is well-designed and has Antec's signature simplistic look. Component locations are all where they should be and even a fairly loaded system still offers ample space. You can put a massive graphics card, cooling unit, and tons of storage devices comfortably inside this thing. The height ...
  • Cons: I don't understand Antec. They put a lot of thought into the design, accessibility, and functionality of these cases, then completely overlook small, yet obvious design flaws. They do this with every single case they've designed; they get most everything right, but get a few really important thin...

A premium mini-itx case

Julius G., Newegg
8 July 2014
  • Summary: It's a little larger than standard Mini-ITX cases, but this is what I consider a no compromise Mini-ITX case. Build and have fun.
  • Pros: Very high end feel Front light is not piercing blue, subtle...nice touch Can fit long video cards (Up to 12.5" according to Antec) Fits regular size PSU's
  • Cons: None that I can think off, maybe two usb 3.0 slots on the front instead of 1x usb 3.0 and 1x usb 2.0. Not worth taking an egg off.

Incorrect dimensions, smaller than listed

Karl S., Newegg
30 June 2014
  • Summary: Under Newegg specs, the case is listed to be 20.9" x 10.2" x 14.5". This is incorrect. Look to the information direct from Antec for the correct specs: 7.68 x 10.2 x 14.5". Took me a while to figure this out since I was going off the incorrect dimensions labeled in the product picture.
  • Pros: Price after rebate.
  • Cons: Slightly large for a itx case. No psu included? (these things should be expected)

Good Looking Case, Few Issues

Alex B., Newegg
3 February 2014
  • Summary: ASUS EAH6850 SeaSonic X650 Plextor M5P 256GB (Primary) SAMSUNG 470 128GB (storage) Intel i5-2500 G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB Corsair H75 ASUS P8H61-I R2.0 Win 8.1 Antec ISK600 Antec Formula 7
  • Pros: Nice looking case with a solid build. A surprising amount of space allowing for AIO liquid CPU cooling (2 fans in a push pull!) and a full size PSU. Reminiscent of the NeXT Cube.
  • Cons: 1. Very little support documentation in the box or online. 2. No instructions for optical drive mounting. 3. HOT HOT HOT! Minimal air flow and venting. I have an ASUS EAH6850 that cooks the outside of this case and raises the temps at least 8-10C... Could use a few more side venting areas on the ...

Over all a good Mini-ITX Case

Logan B., Newegg
2 February 2014
  • Summary: Overall this I am very happy with this case and the pros have far outweighed the cons. I just did a build using the Asus Maximus VI Impact (Item #: N82E16813132039), SAMSUNG 840 EVO (Item #: N82E16820147250),CORSAIR Vengeance LP 16GB ( Item #: N82E16820233280), Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO (Item #:...
  • Pros: Great build quality Case is light but feels sturdy Designed to be very space efficiently Fits full 160mm psu and full sized cpu cooler Removable tray system
  • Cons: The psu extension was a poor fit to the psu in that i could only mount my psu facing one direction because cord ran into case. Its hard to explain without seeing it but it fits poorly one direction and not at all the other. The tray for holding the slim drive does not lock so if you have an eject...

Small, yet feature packed

Tracy B., Newegg
23 January 2014
  • Summary: Overall a great little case for my first ITX build. After I figured things out and got things in place, I can see that a lot of thought was put into the design of this case and the usage of the space.
  • Pros: •120mm fan mount allows for an AIO liquid cooler •Supports long GPUs •Brushed Aluminum for the professional look. •3x 3.5 inch hard drive mount, 2x 2.5 inch mounts. •Supports slimline DVD drives for those who still use them (I do.)
  • Cons: •Only 1 fan mount. •PSU can be a pain to install. •Front panel needs to be unscrewed to remove. •Some power supplies will not work due to the cable running from the back of the case to the power supply. For example my TX750M the plug was in the wrong orientation and the cable faced downwards push...
