Antec Six Hundred
Antec has introduced the latest member of the infamous 'Hundred' series of computer cases aimed at the gaming market. The Six Hundred is the sixth case in the series, along side the Nine Hundred, Twelve Hundred, Nine Hundred Two, Three Hundred, and more recently, the Two Hundred.
The Six Hundred is a mid tower style case and supports both mATX and ATX form factor motherboards. It's reasonable sized at 491mm high, 212mm wide and 492mm deep, tipping the scales at 6.9kg. This would suggest that it is made from steel like others in the range. On the outside there are three 5.25" drive bays and a single 3.5" bay, with a further 5 inside, allowing up to 6 hard drives to be installed. For cooling, there is a rear mounted 120mm tri-cool fan and a trademark top-mounted 200mm tri-cool LED fan, with mounting available for a further three 120mm fans, two in the front and one on the windowed side panel to cool the expansion slot area.
Also worth a mention is the top-mounted IO panel which accommodates the usual power and reset switch, power and drive activity LED, a pair of USB slots, two audio jacks and a firewire port. As you can see, the Six Hundred makes use of a bottom mounted power supply design and features the standard 7 expansion slots and two holes for an external watercooling solution.
The Six Hundred is expected to slot in to the range between the Three and Nine Hundred nicely and is available for pre-order from European retailers now, priced at €60.80 (roughly £55 ) although this could change upon release.
