Antec SOLO II Chassis Review

Removing one of the side panels reveals what looks to be quite a spacious case, mainly due to the limited number of 5.25″ bays and 3.5″ bays. You can also see the large CPU cut-out and the PSU support bracket.


Antec have incorporated a storage system at the bottom of the case where the PSU would normally go, to slide the 5.25″ tray sliders in place when you are not using them. All of the case cables were neatly bundled together.

Antec have included one of their 120mm TrueQuiet fans with silicone grommets with a 2 way switch.

Antec have decided to use standard screws for the expansion bays, but at least these can be replaced after removing them.

They have employed a dual-mounting system for 3.5″ drives, allowing you to fix hard drives to the 3.5″ trays or use a suspension mount, both have been designed to reduce noise significantly.

Removing the other case panel we can see the large CPU cut-out and the access to the other side of the optical and hard drive bays. This allows for sensible, simple, cable management.

Opening up the front bezel of the case we can see the two 120mm fan mounts and their respective dust guards. This also allows access to the 3.5″ hard drive mounting trays.
