Antec is no stranger to the chassis market, with well respected products such as the Nine Hundred and Twelve Hundred series chassis. However,  Antec has little to offer in the Mini-ITX market, with just the ISK100 and 300 series released thus far. Last November, Antec released the newest case in their Mini-ITX lineup, the ISK600. The small form factor ISK600 is designed to provide all the features any ITX builder would need without the price tag of other cases such as the Corsair Obsidian 250D and the BitFenix Prodigy. The ISK600’s main features include the ability to mount a standard ATX power supply, long graphics cards, up to five internal hard drives, and it comes with a decorative LED strip on the front panel. With the interest in small form factor PCs continuing to rise, it is imperative that new designs offer more to builders than the competition. But does the ISK600 have the features necessary to compete? In this article, Benchmark Reviews inspects the features of the Antec ISK600 and how they compare to the other popular choices in the Mini-ITX market.

    “Antec added anti-vibration rubber around the screw heads of the rear 3.5″ HDD trays, but for some reason did not do the same with the 2.5″ / ODD bay.”

    …because an SSD doesn’t have any moving parts, thus no vibration. I suppose that it might be nice to have that for the optical drive, but given that it’s a slim optical drive and thus limited in its speed, I don’t see vibration being a problem.
