Antec NSK6500

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have this case?

If so what's it like i.e. how's cable management, airflow etc? I'll be building my gf a new PC soon when her laptop gives out (Inspiron 1150) and was thinking about this case, mainly due to the included PSU (430W) and the large number of hard drive bays.

I had considered the nsk4400 but it didn't have many drive bays.

Any thoughts?

Don't have the case, but I would personally stay away from cases with a PSU. Those PSU's tend to be mediocre in quality at best.

For $100, you can get this:
COOLER MASTER Centurion 534 RC-534-KKN2-GP Black Aluminum & Mesh bezel / SECC Chassis ATX $49.99
XCLIO GOODPOWER 500W ATX 500W $49.99

That would be the better solution.

Not sure what you plan to build in it... why you need that many drive bays? Four optical drives?!?!

The PSU is a good one, model up from the one in my nsk2400, they're made by seasonic (so sayeth silent pc review). It doesn't need to be to powerful as I'll be putting budget stuff in it, Pentium E2140 etc.

I'm set on an antec, but don't wanna spend too much, otherwise i'd get a p180 or p150/solo - plus I live in England where prices are much higher than the US.

ok ok..
Not the best pick, but it's up to you

Although the OEM parts are by Seaonic, Antec didn't really do a good job with them. The Truepower Trio are also by Seasonic, but failed in a review at Jonnyguru.com.

Regarding case, I prefer coolermaster over Antec for budget
