Antec P6 Micro-ATX Tempered Glass Chassis Review
Peter Donnell / 2 years ago
A Closer Look – Exterior
Straight away, you can see that the Antec P6 makes quite a striking first impression. It looks like a premium quality product thanks to its neat and tidy black design. Of course, that huge slab of tempered glass on the left side panel really helps with that.
To keep the front panel looking neat and tidy, the front I/O is located on the left side. You’ll find the usual power buttons, two USB 3.0 ports, and a pair of audio jacks. Nothing too fancy, but certainly everything you’ll need.
The front panel design is certainly unique. There’s a lot of plastic here, but it’s nicely finished with a light texture, saving it from looking like a glossy horror show. The unique shape of the air intake is certainly interesting, and don’t worry, there’s a magnetic dust filter behind the panel too.
It’s dust filters all around it seems, with another large on top, keeping things looking tidy.
Lift it off, and you’ll find a bank of 120/140mm mounts, which should be perfect for fans, but the compact size of the chassis means radiators aren’t likely to fit here.
The right side panel is blank, but it’s nice and thick, so it’ll prevent unwanted vibrations. It’s also mounted with thumbscrews, allowing for easy access.
Around the Back
Around the back, you’ll find a height adjustable 120mm fan mount. As you can see, there’s a pre-installed white fan, which also features some white LED lighting. There are four PCIe slots, three use a snap-off design which sucks. However, there are three brand new replaceable ones included in the box, so hurray, no big worry there!
Finally, on on the base, you’ll find another dust filter, keeping PSU airflow lovely and clean. There are four thumb screws here too, which allow you to move the internal HDD bay forwards and backwards or remove it completely. If you need more room for your PSU, this is going to come in very handy.
