NSK 2400

NSK 3300
Antec presents the New Solution Series line of cases

Antec, a popular choice when it comes to PC enclosures, has released its latest line of enclosures:  the New Solution Series.  All of the cases in this series have been redesigned so that each will allow systems to run cooler and quieter while not hurting your budget.  With five new cases, the NSK 6500, NSK 4400, NSK 3300, NSK 2400 and NSK 1300, there is most likely a case available to suit your needs. 

The NSK 6500 and NSK 4400 both have an advanced cooling system, while the NSK 3300 has a dual-chamber design to help things stay cool.  The NSK 2400 has a triple-chamber structure that should help isolate heat and noise.  Finally, the NSK 1300 keeps systems running quieter due to three-layer side panels.  

The cases are now available with prices ranging from as low as $89.95 all the way up to $119.95.

I'm sure Thermaltake has something that would suit you...

I like the slick look these cases offer. Simple and low key.

Slick? uhm... yeah I guess it is pretty plain that façade, so you could conceivingly stretch the imagination and use the word slick.

I think i'm gonna wrap mine in plaid vinyl w/ tiger or leopard faux leather trim, use some of the vents to hold my bongs and incense sticks...add an extra burner just to serve as my Margarita coaster...truly & completely pimp my rig....

Silverstone Lascala LC11b.

Got yer ugly woodgrain for ya, right here. Which is a shame, because it's an otherwise outstanding HTPC case... but the whole point of HTPC cases is stylistic integration with A/V gear, so "ugly" counts, big-time.

These look like adaptions of the P150, the 6500 being the "black" version of the P150 everyone was hoping for. The NSK2400 looks ideal for HTPCs. I just hope the power supplies are halfway decent, unlike those that shipped with the P150.

The NSK6500 is indeed close to the P150, but the side panel vents and the included TruePower II-430W (the P150 gets the NeoHE) makes it more of an evolution of the SLK3000B, I think. Antec will be releasing the "Solo" case which really is a black P150, sans power supply. It'll be complete with the hard drive suspension too. I'm waiting for the Solo.

Got any more info on this "Solo" case? A link perhaps?

Thanks.

Under the Lifestyle section, the Solo is there. A black P150 without a power supply.

If your PSU is working like it should then there's nothing wrong with a P150 aside from it being white. I like the cable management of the PSU and case. I don't think I'll trade it in for a white one. I'm considering a Take 3 instead.


The images.

Are linked to 2.8Mb Tif files. Abit of over kill don't you think?

You have a point. .jpg or .gif would have been better. Still, we were complaining a few days ago about "Larger View" pictures not being that big. This one though has a good resolution.


Enough of Rubber HD Mounts
By Slaimus on 5/2/2006 11:20:15 AM , Rating: 2
Hard drives are hardly the major cause of noise in a case. These rubber mounts are impossible to replace if you lose them, and they have a significant effect on HD temperature as well.

I think they do help. The hard drives themselves don't produce the noise, it's the resonation from the case that amplifies it. You should have a slow case fan blowing air over your drives anyway, but that's just me...


Cheap plastics again?
By toattett on 5/1/2006 12:33:04 AM , Rating: 2
I never really liked the P160, P180 cases because they were just so "plastics" under those Silverstone or CoolerMaster cases. I suppose these are going to use similar materials?




hmmm

I like Antec, I'm currently using a superlanboy.

But, like others have said, the use of plastics (especially in the front of the cases) kind of makes Antecs look cheap. I looked at the pics of these new models and they looked pretty good on the outside but they're steel .

I find it kind of frustrating, either the cases Antec makes look good on the outside but they are make of steel, or they are made of aluminum but have a "goofy" design. I wish Antec would just make an attractive aluminum case with no plastic on the front. It would be a hot seller.




These have been out for awhile
By stevehp on 5/1/2006 9:32:23 AM , Rating: 2
Not to rain on anyone's parade, but these have been out for oh about a month or so some are on Newegg and other retailers websites. Something newsworthy would have been about the Antec Fusion HTPC enclousure of which uses the same chassis as the 2400, but with an aluminum front(don't quote me on that) a stealthed optical drive an lcd display, and a large volume knob.
