First of all i would like to say that i hope all of you had a wonderful new year’s eve, i personally think that it’s the best and only time of the year that brings joy to people although it actually means we are getting older. That aside today Intel gave the green light to review sites in order to start posting reviews of their new basic Sandy Bridge models. Now the Sandy Bridge architecture is indeed very efficient but it won't be until we see the new X68 mainboards that these CPUs will show their true colors so instead of bringing yet another P67+Sandy Bridge review to our readers we decided in doing something a little bit different. To that end we bring you a review of Antec’s smallest PC Cases, namely the ISK 300-150 and the ISK 310-150.

Both the ISK 300 and the ISK 310 are mITX cases meaning that the most probable use would be either to build an HTPC or a small download Server. Some people have also found the ISK series to be ideal for carPC systems which really come as no surprise since the ISK are 2 of the smallest mITX cases in the market, if not the smallest ones. Now the main reason as to why we decided to review both ISK cases is exactly the same as when we reviewed the Array cases by Fractal Design and that is to show people their differences, if any at all since many of you brought this question to our attention.
