Antec Launches New Micro-ATX Case ISK600M

Antec Inc., a leading provider of high-performance computer components and accessories for the gaming, PC upgrade and Do-It-Yourself market, presents a new model of the ISK series, the ISK600M. The case is now commercially available from 84€ (suggested retail price including VAT) and backed by Antec's Quality 3-Year Warranty.

The ISK600M is a compact and robust Micro-ATX case. The durable frame measures 29 cm in height, 27.5 cm in width, and 34 cm in depth. The chassis is made of 0.8 mm cold-rolled steel and features an elegant brushed aluminum front panel. The sophisticated enclosure has space for graphics cards up to 12.5" in length (a total of two expansion slots), a CPU cooler with a maximum height of 17 cm, and six drive bays (three 3.5"bays, three 2.5" bays and one bay for a slim optical drive).

The front panel offers one USB 3.0 and one USB 2.0 port as well as Audio jacks. A total of four fan mounts (three 120mm, one 140mm) ensure sufficient cooling. Perforated side vents on both sides ensure optimal cooling performance. The ISK600M supports ATX standard PSUs as well as liquid cooling solutions. "Our new Micro-ATX case ISK600M features an elegant and sturdy design which will equally appeal to corporate and performance users, but also to gamers looking for a compact build", explains Jerome Francois, Sales Director Europe at Antec. "Its internal space, the advance cooling system and the stylish aluminum panels make this case a safe choice for users who appreciate an understated but advanced design without compromising."

The ISK600M could serve as a conventional PC, gaming rig, or home theatre device and media center, but is also well-suited for professional users and system providers looking for a small-format solution.

Nice looking case and the proportions and storage options seem just about perfect for a case like this (at least to me it does).

I just hope that Antec have picked up their game for build quality because they have been severely lacking in quality in the recent past couple years. I want to seem back as a big player in the PC chassis market.

Slim slot or bust. That air vent cutout on the left panel is fugly. The 80m fan cut out at the back is fugly and unnecessary. Blue led is stupid as most of the high-end components today are black and red. Antec has lost it, just like Tt. Silly designs that nobody buys, and their QA is nonexistent. That comes from a man who used to be Antec-only.

I like it. I have the Antec NSK 1300 running my XP rig. I was never a fan of the Aria/NSK 1300/1380 psu but haven't brought myself to cut/mod the chassis to accept a normal psu. Now there is this option. Looks good to me.

Very smooth but I would love this with a side panel. I would hope to see a custom add on or a variant with on as it looks sleek.

Seeing the TT Core V21 in the previous news post pretty much makes this ISK600M feel old, useless, and obsolete.
Thermaltake really stepped up, but Antec seems to have made a step backwards...
