Antec Six Hundred V2 Review

maximum pc
13 June 2011
  • Excerpt: The Antec Six Hundred V2 retails for $80. At that price, it’s competing with Bit- Fenix’s Shinobi and CM’s Storm Enforcer—and losing. The interior is unpainted and everything feels flimsy, from the just-pull-till-it-comes-loose optical drive bezels to the just-bend-till-it-snaps-off PCI slot covers, of which there are seven. Nothing, literally nothing, is toolless, either, so get that screwdriver handy.
  • Pros: Inexpensive; decent stock cooling for the price range; 2.5" caddy
  • Cons: Nothing is toolless; curious design choices; cramped

  • Excerpt: Already figured out what you are going to get for your new gaming rig, but can’t decide on a case? Take a look at what we just got from Antec. The Antec Six Hundred v2. This mid-tower can hold up to six 3.5″ HDDs, three 5.25″ drives, and has a bottom mount for 2.5″HDD/SSD as well as front-loading 2.5″/SSD hot-swap bay for quick drive changes.

Antec Six Hundred V2 Case Review

ThinkComputers
28 March 2011
  • Summary: Final Thoughts With the Six Hundred V2 case Antec has made some improvements on the original case.  Many users will appreciate the CPU cutout that will enable you to install aftermarket CPU coolers without having to remove your motherboard.  The 2.5-inch hot-swappable bay is a nice addition but not as many users will use it.  The window on the top panel is just there for looks and you really do not even notice it when you first look at the case.
  • Pros: – Some updated features, – 2.5inch drive compatible, – Adequate cooling
  • Cons: – No real cable management features, – You will have clearance issues with larger video cards and installed hard drives, – Plain steel interior

Antec Six Hundred V2 Mid-Tower Gaming Case Review

Hi Tech Legion
21 March 2011
  • Summary: The cooling performance for the Antec Six Hundred V2 Mid-Tower Gaming Case was good. Low fan speeds produced next to no noise with only a 1 degree difference over the high speeds with my setup. I'm glad to see the CPU tray cut out getting bigger. One big problem with previous generations of cases was that the hole was cut off center and didn't offer universal access. The newer holes span nearly the entire top half of the motherboard.
  • Pros: 2.5" HDD Hot Swap Bay, Good Cooling, Moon Roof, Removable HDD Fan Face Plate, Washable Mesh Filter, Sturdy Top Design (can be used as carrying handles), 200mm Top fan and 120mm Rear, Clean Design
  • Cons: Non Tool Free, Non Replaceable Expansion Bay Covers

Antec Six Hundred v2 Gaming Case

  • Conclusion: The Antec Six Hundred v2 is a revised case tweaked to be placed back in competition with newer products. Most revisions tend to offer significant improvements in terms of usability, performance, or visual design. In this case however the only notable difference is the change from a front-loaded hot swap 3.5" SATA hard drive caddy to a 2.5" one. In a way it kind of feels like a rebrand more than anything. The Six Hundred v2's performance is slightly weak for its price.
  • Pros: Built-in lighting, External fan control, Included fans are quiet even at max speed, Front fan intake dust filters are thorough
  • Cons: Visually incomplete, 200mm fan performance below expectations, Poor cable management, Over-priced for an out-dated model
