Antec ISK 310-150 Mini-ITX Chassis With Built-in 150w PSU Review
Peter Donnell / 4 years ago
The top panel is held in place by three thumbscrews, so it’s pretty easy to remove it and get access to the interior. The top, left and right panels are a single U-shaped metal part.
The chassis isn’t much of a looker on the interior, it’s more practical than stylish, but it certainly has everything you would need.
The built-in PSU is located near the front, helping to keep the motherboard area free and it comes hard-wired with all the cables you’ll need to saturate the chassis drive mounts.
The upper brackets are easily removed with a few screws, but it looks like there may be enough room to install our test motherboard without having to remove them, which would certainly speed up the install process.
There’s room towards the front, just above the ODD drive bay for two 2.5″ drives, with an additional 3.5 further back; more than enough storage for a chassis of this size.
The TriCool fan may be small, but it’s perfectly located to help pull heat away from the motherboard. Small fans can get noisy at high RPM, but that’s why Antec has included a three-speed fan controller at the back, helping you tailor the noise/cooling to suit your needs and preferences.
There’s another fan behind the PSU, which is perfect for keeping those vital power components from overheating.
Need more cooling? There’s room for another 80mm fan on the side and there’s a plastic guard over the hole for now to help keep things neat and tidy, keep dust out, etc.
