Antec ISK-600 mITX Chassis Review
Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
It took around 20 minutes to put the system together, which is pretty quick overall, but since there wasn’t much to do and plenty of work space inside I didn’t really run into any compatibility issues, everything bolted in to place with ease.
The Corsair H80i has quite a thick radiator for an AIO water cooler, but it fit with relative ease, and will give us more than enough cooling performance for an overclocked gaming rig, while also helping to keep acoustics as low as possible.
The water pipes are under a bit of tension, but there quite thick anyway and that shouldn’t be an issue.
Between the PSU and the motherboard there is a nice bit of clearance and a couple of cable tie loops, I didn’t need to use them, but if you have a few extra hard drives installed they’ll certainly come in handy for keeping things organised.
The PSU fits nice and snug and the pass through cable was enough enough to connect, and it’s a great solution for keeping the airflow of the PSU independent of the rest of the case, which should help keep temperatures of our other components lower.
The GTX 560 isn’t a small card, but it fit with room to spare, there are a few cables cramped behind the PSU, but if you really needed to you can move them to the space between the PSU and motherboard.
The hard drive bays drop back into place last and after that you’re able to hook up your SATA cables, pop the top panel on and enjoy your new rig.
The final result is a great looking build and if you look through the left side vents you’ll see the back of our GPU, which will benefit from the extra airflow the vents provide.
