Not everyone has the space – or need - for a massive system. Antec’s NSK1380 is a compact, cubic design that allows it to fit into nearly any workspace. Despite its small size, it’s big on features.

In addition to being spacious enough to fit a microATX motherboard, there is room for four full height PCI expansion cards as well as a single 5.25” external drive bay and a trio of 3.5” HDD drive bays. The drive cage flips up for easy installation of the drives and a universal optical drive bay cover is included for the external drive.

A 120mm fan draws out heat and included thermal interface tape efficiently transfers heat away from the HDD to the cage where it can be dispersed. The included 350 Watt custom power supply is 80 PLUS certified to save the environment as well as costs on your monthly electrical bill. The silver and black external panels are triple-layered to dampen system noise. The NSK1380 is versatile enough to house a multimedia PC, contain a mobile gaming box, or serve as your primary desktop PC.

  • newegg Energy Saving The Antec NSK1380 comes equipped with a highly efficient 350 Watt power supply with 80 Plus certification. Not only does it save power, but it saves money on your power bill!
  • newegg Small Size The Antect NSK1380’s small size makes it ideal for any size workspace and gives portability to a full powered desktop PC.
  • newegg Triple Layered Panels The Antec NSK1380’s triple layer panel design increases sound dampening to effectively quite your machine to the sound of a whisper.

5 out of 5 eggsSmall, well designed and quiet case

Pros: Small footprint, well made, well thought-out layout fits a lot of components in a small space. Drive cage easily removable.

Cons: You have to remove the power supply to get the motherboard in. Case speaker not included (but usually comes with the motherboard these days...). Probably not the best case for you if you want to overclock/tinker with your system on a daily basis.

Other Thoughts: I was looking for a small and quiet case to house a core i5 Sandy Bridge system and this one fits the bill. Slow spinning 120mm PSU fan is silent but moves enough air. Sandwich design for case sides works well in dampening HDD noise.

Since the case is fairly small, installing components and connecting wires can get a little fiddly (but contrary to other reviews, _all_ the SATA power connectors are actually usable).

I currently have a (fanless) discrete half-height graphics card, a 2.5" SSD, a 3.5" HDD and a DVD drive in the case, and more room left (3.5" drive bay and 2.5" internal drive bay still available).

4 out of 5 eggsVery nice case

Pros: -Layout is well though out.
-Cables are long enough to reach all drives.
-Fits 3 full sized HDD's as well as a full sized optical drive.

Cons: -The case was slightly warped causing difficulties installing the I/O shield, but this was easily remedied.

Other Thoughts: I would like to dispute some of the things that have been said about this case in other reviews. The first is about the total output of the power supply. This is a 350W power supply, ans while not all of this is on the 3.3 and 5V rails, this is actually common. All one needs to do is look at other power supply ratings to see that the 12V rail usually has the largest share of the power rating.

The next thing is that the cable length worked out fin for me. I have 2 HDDs installed as well as one optical drive. The cable to the optical drive was the one that was the shortest, but I still had sufficient length.

The one thing that I would like to see is that it had 4 SATA power connectors as it currently only has 3. This would allow all the drive bays to be filled with SATA drives and not have to use an IDE to SATA power cable converter. I also wish that it had a space for a front 3.5" drive bay as well as USB 3.0 plugs. All are minor complaints.

2 out of 5 eggsPoor quality control

Pros: It's nice that they include an extra fan that can occupy one of the card slots.

I'm running a 125watt cpu in the box, along with a disk and several gigabit ethernets - the power supply and cooling air flow is sufficient. I'd get nervous if I were to try to stuff a high powered (high heat output) video card in there as well.

Cons: I've bought roughly 100 of these cases. I would estimate that about 10% to 20% arrive with broken tabs on the side panels or the metal frame is warped. I've also had problems with power supply fans that rub against their fames. Antec's quality control on these is not very good. I would change to another case if I weren't locked into this one by our needs.

The cases only have one front LED which is either for power of disk activity but not both. Come on Antec, give us two LEDs - that would be far more useful than the IDE cable that comes with the case.

2 out of 5 eggsClever design, but cramped

Pros: Good build quality, clever design that fits all components in a small-volume case (but see below); efficient power supply; quiet; only two stand-offs take screws while the ones under the PSU are hooks--the arrangement holds the MB firmly in position without requiring removal of the PSU to reach all the screws.

Cons: The right-most hard drive rests on my CPU heatsink, blocking the fan from turning. The case is cramped, making it difficult to work. The SATA power adapters on the PSU are too short; they do not reach the recommended positions for the hard drives (I had to buy extension cables).

Other Thoughts: I used this case for two years with a file server. I use the Zalman 8000 heatsink & fan because it's one of the very few that fit in this case. I had to replace the MB this past month, and I discovered that the new MSI 740 MB (AMD) is slightly different in position--the heatsink sits a millimeter or so higher, and the hard drive blocks the fan from turning. I didn't discover this when testing the machine with the case open and the drive cage rotated up. I rotated the drive cage into position, closed up the case, and only discovered the problem when the thermal shut-off kicked in.
If you use 2.5" hard drives or find a heatsink/fan that sits lower than the Zalman 8000, you can consider this a 3- or even 4-egg case rather than a 2-egg case.

4 out of 5 eggsdecent case

Pros: small, compact and functional. the method of opening case is clear, concise and extremely functional.

Cons: top of case is cheap plastic. wouldn't be a problem except after several months of use, scratches began to appear. Not a huge issue, but next time I shall make sure my case is fully steel.

3 out of 5 eggsGood design, poor QA

Pros: The cabling was all nearly perfect lengths. Not true for all motherboards, but great for the Asus board I used to build into it.
The case is quiet, and for how cramped it is it has surprisingly good airflow.

Cons: I have no idea how this case got past QA at the factory.
The side of the case is warped, and this made the rear panel slot very un-square. This does not impact the usability once you bend a rear panel to fit, it was just very frustrating to work with.
In addition, one of the clips that lock the side panels onto the case was broken when I took it out of the box.

No removable motherboard tray. This is the single largest issue with this case, and makes me wish I would have gone with something different. I actually built the motherboard setup in another case, and ported it over in order to make things easier on myself. Not everyone has that luxury.

Other Thoughts: Yes, it is cramped. That was expected coming into using this case. Youtube is your friend to see exactly what this looks like with a system in it. If you don't like what you see there, it is most likely not for you. As a secondary system case, something to port to LANs or use as a kiosk for people in my living area, this works very well. It is not a case for a powerhouse machine, and if you realize that you can get some solid miles out of it.

I am going to end up doing some work on mine to resolve the issues QA failed to catch. If the other reviews here are any indication, then QA on these cases is slipping overall, with lots of similar issues.

4 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: - Very nice looking
- Well built, solid inside and out
- Very quiet, top and side panels have vibration/noise dampening material in them
- Well though-out design allows lots of components in small area (3 hard drives, 1 CD/DVD)
- 5" bay cover is on hinge - front panel stays clean-looking after installation of CD/DVD drive.

Cons: - Poor cooling, only one 120mm fan, and it's on the power supply. The airflow thru the PSU is poorly designed and very restrictive to moving air out of the case.
- Vent in top cover is poorly placed, 75% blocked by PSU which does even utilize the vent, just blocks it.
- Top cover difficult to remove
- Side covers come off too easily, hard to snap in place
- Two grills on fan exhaust - why? Only hinders already restricted air flow

Other Thoughts: - Can't think of another case that packs so much potential power into such a small space. Would make a nice compact server - add three 2G drives and serve up web pages, video, audio...
- Front panel finish is unusual, very flat black krinkle finish. I like it but it's a little unusual.
- A PCI vent fan is included to help overcome airflow issues, not sure if it's enough. There's no room for any other fans unless you hack up the top or side panels, which would be a shame since they are very nice. Antec need to redesign the power supply case to allow more airflow through it.
- Forget cable management, the hard drive tray is hinged above the motherboard. A nice design, but drive cables will need to be longer then usual and won't tuck away neatly.

3 out of 5 eggsFinally Quit

Pros: Quiet, attractive.

Cons: Proprietary power supply; limited space for CPU cooler; front LEDs died after a couple of months; back plate for securing cards needs to be removed before inserting/removing a card.

Other Thoughts: I have mixed feelings about this case. It worked great for over 3 years. The power supply finally died (after many hours of use), but it is really hard to find a replacement. 9 months ago the only supplier I could find wanted almost as much as a new case - ANTEC does not sell them. There do appear to be more suppliers available now, so I bought a replacement for $50. I have wonder how much longer this part will be available.

There is not much vertical space over the CPU for an aftermarket cooler - best to measure first.

There is no venting on the side panels (designed for noise suppression), so it takes some effort to maintain clean cable routing to get reasonable air flow.

Overall, this is a good case, but the power supply limits it useful lifetime.
