Antec ISK 600

Antec have an extensive history in the PC component industry, they’ve produced some of the most popular cases around and they’re reputation for durability and affordability has always served them well. The latest addition to their range, the ISK 600 looks set to continue that tread and is targeted towards the HTPC / small form factor gaming market, both of which are currently proving very popular, especially with the recent demand for Steambox style gaming systems as people take their PC gaming to the big screen.

The demand for affordable and compact cases is growing, people want the small form factor so that their systems fit into their home entertainment system, or even just something that can be easily transported for LAN gaming events. Despite the demand for small form factors, most people still want a full size power supply, plenty of storage, large graphics cards and room for a powerful CPU cooler, especially for overclocked systems and the ISK600 looks set to deliver on every single point, with the added bonus of being affordable at just £53 (best price on Google shopping at time of writing).

With support for mini-ITX motherboards, ATX power supplies, a decent size graphics card and even room for a 120mm AIO water cooler, the ISK600 packs enough features for a great gaming system, so lets get right to the good stuff and see what else this chassis has to offer.

The ISK comes neatly packaged in a colourful box bearing the common Antec colours. There isn’t much on the box front other than a tidy image of the chassis as well as a speech bubble letting us know it supports USB 3.0.


Around the side we have a nice run down of many of the features, such as water cooler support, front light bar, ATX PSU support and the 120mm fan that is included in the chassis.


In the box you’ll find everything you need to get you started, including a quick guide leaflet, some cables ties and a collection of screws for your motherboard, PSU, hard drives, etc.

    Only problem that I forsee with this case, every kind of mITX motherboard and the H80i cooling system is, most (/every) of the time, there is :
    – Only one USB 3.0 and 2.0 internal slot on the MB,
    – On the other hand, the case have one usb 3.0 and one usb 2.0 on the front panel,
    – And the H80i need also an usb connection internaly.
    => So, you will have to choose between plug usb case or H80i on the MB.

      My understanding is that the internal USB3.0 headers on the motherboard will serve both 3.0 and 2.0 ports. Most cases include a cable that splits into 3.0/2.0 because some may not have USB3.0 support on their MB. They often warn to plug in only one or the other.

      So there should be just enough for both the H80i and case I/O. Also, you could get an AIO that doesn’t require an internal USB connection.

        I just bought this case (£30 del from Maplins) and while the looks are very good and construction is also v good I am finding that a 3.5 HDD in the middle holder is acting a bit like an echo chamber so the noise of the hard disk seeking is louder than it should be. This would be great as an SSD only case and the internal layout is good too. Not a fan of internally mounted power off switch tho. And the front LED strip is perfect for HTPC, very low level and discreet.
        Really wanted an lian li q36 but @ £30, great value.

    Which Mobo did you use?
    With the H80i installed, were you able to mount a 3.5″ HDD on the side of the case?
    Also with the H80i, were you able to fit the hanging 3.5″ HDD in the bracket above the mobo?

    Dear Sir, Madam,

    I really believe job well done Te only thing is the fan bar horizontall is not there yet. Please be advised that it should be a 1 to 3 point to the point of the start of the heating all together.

    I think a cooling bar or something should go up an the end!

    I am going to buy this later when i worked for it!

    And I am happy I have an antec case here myself!

    I am upping my old workstation!
