The Little One - Antec ISK300-65 Mini-ITX Casing

Compact Exterior

Compact Exterior

Compact is perhaps the best word to describe the Antec ISK300-65. Weighing only slightly more than 3kg when bare and with dimensions not exceeding that of a large shoebox, it should fit on desks or into audio-visual cabinets with ease. Aside, it seems that Antec's approach to the ISK300-65 was to keep it simple, as evidenced by its exterior outlook, which is markedly functional.

The front I/O panel of the Antec ISK300-65 consists of two USB 2.0 ports, an eSATA port, headphone and microphone jacks, reset and power switch. This should be good enough for most casual users.

Note that the 5.25-inch optical drive is of the slim variety. This means you won't be able to fit your standard-sized optical drives.

Moving to the side, we can see the ISK300-65's solitary fan. You can add an additional fan by removing the bracket next to it.

There's nothing of significance at the top of the ISK300-65, save for the vents located in one corner.

Nothing special around the back either. Note the single half-height expansion slot to the right. That means you won't be able to fit any full size cards into this case, thus limiting the expansion slot's capabilities.

The ISK300-65 has a 3-speed fan selector, allowing you to turn the fans up should you think your system is running too warm.
