The Anidees Al6 really is beautifully designed. There are no flashing LED's or monster size fans, instead they have opted for straight clean design lines.
The only indication of who made the case is Anidees branding on the bottom edge of the side panel. The brushed aluminum front and top panels are simple but very easy on the eyes. Both of the side panels are solid but there are ventilation grooves built into the trim that supports the side and the top panels.
The front panel opens to gain access to the bezel. The door of the Al6 can be removed and setup to open from either side. There is a small plastic clip at the base of the panel that will release the door once the screws are removed.
There are 3 x 5.25″ bays available and they all have simple to remove bay covers. With the front panel removed we can easily remove the metal plates that block access to these drive bays. We can also see where the front intake fans are mounted, between the steel mesh on the front bezel and the removable hard drive cages that are located inside the chassis.
The top panel is very cleanly presented. It consists of 2 x USB 3.0 ports, 4 x USB 2.0 ports, On/Off and Rest buttons as well as 2 audio input jacks. After removing the panel we can see where all the cables from the top I/O panel would be routed as well as where the optional top mounted fans or a radiator would be placed.
Both top and front panels have a brushed aluminum finish which is eye catching. Because the panels are solid, Anidees have added grooves to the outer edges of these panels to allow air to flow into and out the chassis.
The rear of the top panel is where all the I/O functionality originates. There are small PCB's mounted here to control the USB ports and other switches. The bottom area of the front bezel behind the front door is made of steel mesh. This mesh grill is removable from the inside once the panel is taken off. There is also a removable foam dust filter that sits behind the mesh grill.
The bottom panel of the Anidees Al6 is designed for optimal airflow. There are thin mesh dust filters that sit below the power supply and are positions we can use to mount an optional fan. They are easily removed for quick cleaning.
