External Features

Now we have the case out, let’s take a closer look at it.

On the front you can see three drive bays and the hot swappable 2.5” bay. The front of the case unclips and comes off to allow easy access to the dust guard for the two front fans.

The left side of the 600 has a large side window, stretching from the top to the bottom of the case and has a slot for a 120mm fan.

The right side is just a flat black panel with the exception of an Antec Design logo in the bottom right hand corner.

Along with the 200mm fan, the top of the case also has what Antec call a moonroof. It’s a small, darkened window on the top through which you can see your hardware. Unless, of course you mount an optical drive in the top 5.25” bay in which case all you’ll see is a blackened piece of glass or the top of an optical drive.

The rear of the case features two 34mm holes for watercooling systems and push out style expansion slot covers. I’d have thought they would have used reusable ones instead, allowing you to cover up holes in the back created from moving cards around etc.

The rear of the case is also where you’ll find the fan controller. In my opinion mounting this on the rear isn’t a very good idea, having to reach around to the back of the case and fiddle with tiny sliders would quickly get tiresome.

There don’t appear to be any markings on the front of the case to indicate which 3.5mm jack is for headphones and which is for a microphone. This may have been an aesthetic choice by the designers but it’s a bit of a pain having to guess which is which.

The power/HDD access LEDs are both white, the right one being for power and the left HDD access.
