    Antec unveiled the ISK-110 VESA, a compact mini-ITX which features VESA display mounts, which can let you latch it onto your monitors to tuck it away, saving space. Measuring 78 x 212 x 222 mm (WxDxH), and weighing 990 g, the case packs just enough room for a standard mini-ITX motherboard, two 2.5-inch SATA drives (HDDs or SSDs), and basic front-panel connectivity that includes four USB 2.0 ports. A 90W power brick is included, leaving you with very limited choices when it comes to the motherboard. You can either opt for Intel Atom, AMD E-Series, VIA Nano/Quad-Core, or socketed motherboards paired with extremely low-TDP processors. The case is made of 0.8 mm-thick steel sheets. Backed by 3-year warranty, the case is expected to be priced around US $125.

    Now if only they had included room for a LP video card then they would have me sold, so I could make it my LAN rig.

    Erhmem, you're forgetting FM2, A10-5700. In fact this is the only situation that I'd use FM2 in. That's actually a decent psu; you can push it pretty far.

    Also this has been for sale on newegg for 3 months at $85. Are you sure they just announced it? Because that would be fucking retarded.

    Don't agree that your CPU choices are "very limited" with the included power supply. There are plenty of CPUs that will run just fine in 90w with a mobo and single SSD.

    PSU generates lot of RF interference. I should be shielded.

    Currently OOS @ Newegg in case anyone is looking at it like I am. Also shows $5.99 shipping, didn't see free Shoprunner.

    Had this case, same model number. At the time I bought it, it wasn't listed on Antec's site. It is now.

    Power supply didn't work.

    Tried RMA through Antec first. After 2 days of waiting for them to reply, I went to Newegg to get an exchange. They said they could only do a return at that point because they stopped stocking that model.

    Literally 3 full days later, after having shipped off the case, I got a reply from Antec, asking if I verified the motherboard worked.

    This case looks exactly the same as the one I had. Same model number, same power supply.
    One thing I can say is that the hard drive placement and the overall design is amazing, it's a really good and solid case, and the top grill is raised so it fits full-sized intel coolers. Only problem is that the front usb port box thing got in the way of the motherboard, took lots of frustration getting it to fit.

    EDIT: Oh, and the motherboard is happily sitting in a mini-itx case that's slightly taller than this, because it has room for a laptop dvd-drive. In it are an SSD, a 2.5" hard drive, an A4-3400 APU, and 4GB ram. The cpu is really weak, but the whole system is definitely an upgrade to the netbook that it replaced.
