The NSK6580 case from Antec is a stylish silver and black mid tower designed for style and convenience. The front panel is a minimalist design in silver and black with air vents along the side. A 120mm 3 speed fan pull air through those vents, across your system and out the back for efficient cooling with minimal noise. There are mounts for two 92mm fans at the front and an 80mm fan on the side for more cooling if you find it necessary.

The five hard drive bays are mounted in a removable cage with silicone grommets to reduce noise from transmitted vibrations. One of the four external drive bays has a 3.5" converter panel so you can install a floppy drive or a small accessory.

Included with the case is a 430W EarthWatts power supply with a universal power input and Active PFC. They also included a set of front panel connectors to make life easier, 2 USB, 1 FireWire, 1 headphone and 1 microphone jack.

5 out of 5 eggsAntec NSK 6580 w 420 Eartwatts

Pros: 2 years of perfect service.

Very well laid out tower, nice airflow design, good businesslike looks, without being plain.

Excellent cable management space. Lots of good airflow, if you install an additional fan in the front.

The PSU is rock steady, and unless you are a gonzo gamer, more than enough.

Love the HDD mounting system.

Cons: It would be nice to see an 8 pin CPU plug, and modular cabling, as well as a front 120mm fan, however I knew all of that when buying.

Other Thoughts: Buy it, great value.

4 out of 5 eggsFairly good; reviewed old one

Pros: First off, I'd just like to say that I did not get this new from Newegg. My uncle bought one about two years ago and never used it. I found it in a closet and am using it for an old Socket A computer. So some things may have changed. On to the pros

- Nice, clean design
- Sturdy construction
- Quality 430W PSU (OEM SeaSonic)
- Decent airflow if you add more fans
- Well-designed drive bay

Cons: - PSU cables are not sleeved (makes a mess)
- Odd stock standoff placement. Only six standoffs installed, do not match up with ATX or mATX. Had to use pliers to unscrew (may have been due to old age)
- Slightly cramped for ATX boards
- Too many front panel cables
- Front panel difficult to remove

And though it may not apply to most people, the Earthwatts 430W provided is good for modern mid-range systems, but when working with older computers (Athlon XP, Pentium III) it is lacking on the +5V rail and may undervolt with beefier systems (had to swap out a 9800 Pro for an X1300 or the computer would freeze periodically). However it is well-designed for modern computers.

Other Thoughts: Some of the cons (such as standoff placement) may have been corrected with newer revisions. As I said, the one I'm using is two years old but never used. It's a good case, but there are some things that could be improved.

Also the price is a tad high for what you get; I think an Antec Two Hundred offers a better price:benefit ratio, though this does look rather snappier.

Overall pretty good though.

2 out of 5 eggsCut my thumb pretty bad

Pros: Nice case. Fits my MSI GF615M-P33 AM3 NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE Micro ATX AMD Motherboard, as it should. Silicon grommets for hard drive to help vibration/noise. Plenty of screws. Big fan for rear output with 3 speed/noise settings. Power supply nice & quiet.

Cons: Butterflied the fat pad of my thumb open removing one of the DVD drive bays on a sharp inside edge. First time I've done that in tons of builds over the past 15 or so years. Needed stitches but I manned up and just used some steri-strips.

Manual didn't say what screw to use for what. Also was pretty unclear in how to remove drive bay covers. I knew the answers to everything, but the novice may not.

Other Thoughts: Nice case, but I'd wear gloves or take extra precaution messing around the inside. I've built tons of computers and I guess eventually the odds catch up. My time was last night.

4 out of 5 eggsNice case, quiet, solid

Pros: This is not my first Antec case and most likely will not be my last. Antec makes a great case. This case is quiet, built solidly and easy to work with. There's plenty of room for expansion. With the exception of accessing the external 3.5" bay, there is plenty of room for big hands.

It's a very handsome case, it's very sturdy and is built with great quality.

Cons: Accessing the 3.5" external bay is a bit of a hassle. I installed a 3.5" card reader and spent a lot more time than I wanted to getting the drive installed. The 3.5" bay is actually a 5.25" bay with an adapter to accommodate a smaller drive.

Other Thoughts: This is a great case for a low to mid-range build. The Power Supply is probably not powerful enough to handle most higher end builds. There was enough power to handle 2 HDs in a RAID 1, a Radeon HD 4670 w/ 1GB DDR3, DDR3 1333 RAM and an Phenom II x4 CPU.

3 out of 5 eggsSteel

Pros: Hard Steel, Reliable PSU, Great Looks, Like the roomy interior and huge fan.

Cons: The PSU is outdated, only 1 6Pin e-PCI and a 4-pin ATX (not 8 EPS). Both can be remedied with molex to x pin but that kinda defeats the purpose.

5 out of 5 eggsAntec NSK6580 Review

Pros: Feels very sturdy to the touch and well-made. Looks nice too. Removable hard drive tray makes it easy to install more hard drives in the future. Included power supply is 430W, which is good enough for most purposes. Option for 4 case fans for better airflow (only one 120mm is included).

Cons: I know people are going to call me an idiot for this, but I didn't know that this power supply didn't support X58 Motherboards by default (since the power supply is missing the 8-pin connector). However, this can be fixed by just buying an adapter like this one:

1ST PC CORP. 6" 8-pin EPS female cable adapter from P4 ATX 4-pin male Cable Model CB-4MP4-8F - Retail

Other Thoughts: This was my first attempt at building a system from scratch, and it turned out great! The only problem was that I didn't realize the PSU wasn't compatible with X58 motherboards (not anybody's fault but my own on that).

My System:

Intel Core i7 920 2.66Ghz
MSI X58 Pro-E Motherboard
Crucial 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1333
Sapphire Radeon HD 3650 512mb
WD Caviar Blue 500GB SATA HD
LITE-ON Blu-Ray Disc Reader

4 out of 5 eggsDoes not fit GTX 275

Pros: Sturdy case. Decent to good airflow with intake fans added.

Cons: This case will not fit my eVGA GTX 275 by 2-3 millimeter. Modding of the hard drive cage is required to make it fit. I've temporarily taken out the hard drive cage in order to fit the video card. My temporary solution is to just rest my 1 hard drive on the bottom of where the cage used to be.

Other Thoughts: I bought this case on November 2007. Now almost 2 years later I have upgrade my video card to the GTX 275. The case has served it's purpose but I'm moving onto an Antec Twelve Hundred soon.

4 out of 5 eggsgood box

Pros: plopped in my components and away we went. See other thoughts. One of the better engineered cases I've seen. Cartridge w/ rubber padded caddys for 5" components (e.g HDD, DVD/CDs)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: My customer puts his computer on the floor. I also bought the ANTEC 300 case for another system. The 300 is much better suited for sitting on the floor as the P/S and all the controls are on the top front face. This case has the controls 1/2 way between top and bottom. 300 has better cooling, but p/s is extra $$.
