Antec SOLO II Chassis Review

Rating: 9.0.

Antec have produced many cases over the years, and are continually bringing out new and improved versions of previous models. Continuing the focus of quiet sophistication from the original Antec SOLO case the SOLO II aims to deliver a new standard for quiet, high-performance cases. The Antec SOLO II is a member of the Sonata series which focus on good looks and a quiet PC experience. On top of this the SOLO II has been produced to allow for lots of customisation and to cater for the larger components while retaining a small footprint.

    I still have the first version, it was a solid case, but it had some flaws. this one seems better

    I bought a case with a piano finish and I honestly will never go back, it looks great at the start, but you spend a lot of time keeping it clean and free from marks and dust. If you have a young kid in the house, never even contemplate one of these.

    An innocuous looking review whith a hidden secret: It’s a clever idea to move the stock fan in front and to use the CPU cooler fan to push air directly outside the case instead of against a rear fan.
