Mini-ITX is the next "big" thing. Designed exclusively. Mini-ITX motherboards. With three drive bays, a side 80mm TriCool fan, and a stable 150-watt power adapter, the ISK 300-150 can handle many of the tasks of a traditional PC, in half the space. And with a 0.8mm cold rolled steel frame, the ISK 300-150 is not only nimble but durable. From petite desktop option to silent home theater, Antec’s ISK 300-150 is an epic case of mini proportions.

-This did include USB3.0 ports on the front panel.
Pros: It's a small case, with pretty good air flow, thanks to the included fan.
-Looks pretty nice.
-As small as it can be (see cons).
-The packaging is some of the best I've seen for a computer case. No styrofoam!
Cons: Antec could definitely rework the CD drive slot so it isn't as tacky/dysfunctional. Click to close? Wouldn't it be cheaper to throw a cheap spring in the door, or just redesign the bezel so it shows the face of the optical drive?
-Difficult to work with in comparison to some other mITX cases, despite not being much smaller.
-Some of the cables are obnoxiously long, and difficult to tuck the slack away.
-Did NOT include a motherboard speaker.
-Proprietary power supply.
-Antec TriCool? Why do these fans still exist? It isn't 2003 anymore.
Overall, it's a decent case. I'd probably buy another, but i'm not completely convinced I would. There are many others on the market, and I think this case is past its prime by now. Time for Antec to redesign this case, especially with how popular mITX cases are becoming.
Case: Antec Mini-ITX Case ISK110-VESA
cpu: AMD A10-Series APU A10-7850K (95w)
Cpu cooler: Scythe Kozuti Low Profile CPU Cooler
memory: 8 gig low profile memory
hard drive: 240gb msata SSD
additional parts: 1) 120W Mini ITX Power Supply KIT PicoPSU (if cpu greater than 90w is needed) 2)StarTech.com LP4P4ADAP 6in LP4 to P4 Auxiliary Power Cable Adapter
Temperature at full load: 64c At idle: 35c
Full load at 64c in a pc case less then 3 inch high and 8 inches long (length is about size of mac mini) is simply an amazing feat for me and I have put together many pc's.
The case will accomodate 2 x 2.5inch laptop hard drives and 1 msata ssd on motherboard. if you choose a cpu less than 90w, then you will not need the 120w mini ITX power supply kit, the case comes with a 90w kit also neater it is made for the case, with the 120w kit, the female power plug will hang out of the case - doesn't bother me though)
If space is a constraint and you need a multi purpose, light gaming pc, and need more space for your legs beneath your desk, this is it. This pc setup run really fast, I am very happy.
Cooling can be an issue. I would not say the case has cooling problems, but if you are using a high-end processor above perhaps 50W, think carefully about how you will keep it cool. Personally, after much testing and a switch for my CPU cooler, I added a 120mm fan on outside of the left grille. The 120mm fan may have been overkill, but I had a spare.
Do yourself a favor, by the way, and consider ordering an 8-10" SATA cable, depending on port placement on the motherboard. In a case this small, excess length (especially with somewhat-rigid SATA cables) is just a hindrance.
I am happy I chose this case, and would not chose a different one were I to pick again.
That said, Antec, if you're listening!
- At least one USB3.0 on the front would be nice.
- Bundle an extension for the 4-pin CPU power wire.
With this one, I has looking for something slightly bigger and more powerful - the ISK 300-150 fit the bill.
Where the ISK100 was very inflexible and difficult to work with, the ISK 300-150 provides a bit more space, more power, and provides options to expand.
I am using a Xeon E3-1230 80W CPU and I wanted to be certain there would be sufficient cooling for it. The case ships with one TriCool 80mm fan. It provides the additional slot for a second one (which I just installed - less than $5 through Amazon/Beach Audio). There is no necessity to use a TriCool for the second fan - any 80mm chassis fan will do. What makes it a "TriCool" fan? It's just that they put a 3-position switch on the control pin and then a 2 pin to Molex adapter on the power pins. I actually pulled those off so I could plug that fan into the motherboard chassis fan pins.
The other thing which was nice - everything is modular. To get out the holder for the fans, it's on a slotted rail. To get it out, you need to move the power supply - also nicely on a slotted rail. Take out the two screws on the power supply rail and everything slides out nicely - didn't even have to disconnect anything on the motherboard when adding the second fan.
The PCIE slot in the case lines up fine with the mini-ITX motherboard. Though I am using a single slot wide PCIE graphics card with only a passive heat sink on it, it appears that there's enough room between the slot and the case that you could use a card which is a bit wider - definitely not a card that would be 2 slots wide, but there is sufficient room that it could be wider than just a single slot.
There also is a slot for a slim-profile CD/DVD. I had no interest in that, as I just plug a portable USB CD/DVD drive for when I need to install software on it that comes on media. That little extra unused space inside the case was good for routing cables. I could see it being really tight if you did put the drive in there.
Above the CD/DVD slot is the mount for up to two 2.5" drives. Very maneuverable and easy to work with since you take it out, attach your drive(s) to it, then put it back in.
The 150W should be plenty for any HTPC build. Mine is a build for a number crunching mini-supercomputer packed with:
Intel E3-1230 80W CPU
2*4GB Crucial Ballistix DDR3 RAM
2*64GB Crucial m4 SATA3 SSD
1 PNY/Nvidia GeForce 8400GS PCIE video card
1 Silverstone Low Profile 90mm CPU fan (on high setting)
2 Antec TriCool 80mm fans (both on high setting)
Again, Antec did this one right - very happy with it!
