Antec Intros Sleek ISK600 Mini-ITX Case

Antec has announced its new ISK600 enclosure, which is a Mini-ITX enclosure that's capable of housing rather large hardware.

The case features a sleek black design, with a blue LED-lit stripe going across the front. Next to this you'll find the front I/O connectivity, which is fairly standard with a pair of HD audio jacks, a single USB 3.0 port and a single USB 2.0 port.

Inside the case, users can place Mini-ITX motherboards, graphics cards up to 317.5 mm in length, and CPU coolers up to 170 mm tall. Also, the case is able to house a full-size ATX power supply. Storage-wise the case can house a single slim optical drive as well as three 3.5" drives in addition to two 2.5" drives. The rear exhaust is taken care of by a 120 mm fan.

The case should be arriving at retailers with an MSRP of €75, and if the Euro-Dollar trick applies, it'll go for the same number but in USD in the US.

    Appears to be a nice case. Not as nice as a LI PC-Q25B or the Prodigy though.

    I don't see why companies still use USB 2.0 ports too.

    Sleek? Hardly.

    Even more, why such a low amount of front USB connectivity? It has a big face, why skimp on USB ports, Antec?

    I wouldn't use it myself, since I don't have the vertical room for it and it looks... Blocky.

    Cheers!

    Certainly far from what I would call ugly(sleek is a look more than a size in this case).

    Kind of similar to the SG05 on the outside, but the inside is another story for sure.

    I think depth is one of the things overlooked in smaller cases. my SG05 is was a perfect fit for the limited space I had(anything deeper would not fit.).

    CM Elite 120 is better than this. Costs less, looks nicer, has one more USB 2.0 port. CM Elite 130, same thing but that extra USB port is a 3.0, plus the front is mesh. Antec fails. (I really want to add "yet again" because every case of theirs plain sucks compared to similarly priced Corsair and NZXT ones, and in low-end segment, Cooler Master)

    Alienware raised the bar when it comes to console sized gaming pc's. Its a good thing they havent came out with cases as small that you could build yourself. It makes it a easy decision to buy a pre-built over building yourself if you want something small that can game. Its like they keep coming out with the same box shaped pc case.

    Sleek? Or boxy? Come on Tom's! Don't place ads as news!

  • Sleek or boxy, who cares? I think it looks pretty good. Design-wise, I think it beats everything in mini-ITX market but Lian Li Q08/Q18 and Fractal Design Node 304.

    I do! Because the subject is misleading!

    Is it any more misleading than a Sleek LaCie hard drive that is sleek because it is a shiny square brick.

    Sleek does not mean size.

    This is a box and it only comes with 1 USB3 3.0 front connection. How have is it to make both front ports 3.0 and just include an adapter to convert them to 2.0 if the user wants to? Other case manufactures do it.

    To be honest their ISK110, ISK 300 and ISK 310 was much sleeker!
