Antec Six Hundred v2 Gaming Case
Full Disclosure: The product sample used in this article has been provided by Antec, Inc.
Antec has been in the PC enclosures business for over 25 years. They have many unique and creative cases such as the LanBoy and Skeleton. However, nothing is more iconic than their "Hundred" series gaming cases, from the low-end Antec One Hundred to the Antec Twelve Hundred full tower. In order to keep up with competition, Antec has been massively updating their line of products. This time it's the Six Hundred's turn. Out of the seven "Hundred" series gaming cases, the Antec Six Hundred v2 is the most balanced. It was designed to be simple but effective. Benchmark Reviews will test the Antec Six Hundred v2 and see where it stands among the fierce competition.
Being a mid-tower case, the Antec Six Hundred v2 supports all of the expected features. It supports ATX/micro-ATX/mini-ATX motherboards, has three 5.25" HDD bays, six 3.5" HDD bays, and two 2.5" SSD/HDD mounts. It can support graphic cards up to 11.5" long. In terms of functionality the Antec Six Hundred has everything you need for a mid-ranged tower.
However simply having the raw functionality isn't enough. The Antec Six Hundred v2 comes sells for $89.95 at Newegg (before rebate) or $96.69 at Amazon, so it is expected that there is work put into the design, performance, and usability of the case. Antec realizes that updates are necessary as there are growing numbers of sub-$60 mid towers that get the job done. Benchmark Reviews will be disassembling the Six Hundred v2 to see where the Antec Six Hundred stands today.
