The Antec Six Hundred V2 retails for $80. At that price, it’s competing with Bit- Fenix’s Shinobi and CM’s Storm Enforcer—and losing. The interior is unpainted and everything feels flimsy, from the just-pull-till-it-comes-loose optical drive bezels to the just-bend-till-it-snaps-off PCI slot covers, of which there are seven. Nothing, literally nothing, is toolless, either, so get that screwdriver handy.
The Six Hundred V2 comes with two fans: a 20cm top fan and a 12cm exhaust fan. The case has room for two front 12cm intakes. There is a window on the left-side panel, with a 12cm fan mounting, and also, curiously, a dark window above the optical drive bays so you can… well, look at your optical drive? These confusing cosmetic choices are all over the V2.
The Six Hundred V2 has room for six HDD and three ODD trays, and can accommodate GPUs up to 11.5 inches, so no dual-Radeon cards for you.
We were able to utilize the two cable-routing cutouts to tidy things up a bit. The front-loaded, hotswap 2.5-inch caddy is also kind of a cool addition. But ultimately, the cheap build quality, abundance of garish plastic trim, and lack of stock fans make this a hard sell.
