Testing

 

As far as testing goes, there really isn't much to report here. Installation of the unit was fairly simple and no different to any other enclosure we've tested. However, we did notice that it was slightly cramped inside the case due to the fact that it is a mini-tower, but that was to be expected.

 

The added case fans did their job well and lowered the system temperature by a couple of degrees. However, don't expect any drastic temperature reductions.

 

Conclusion

 

Overall, we were quite pleased with the Antec Plus 660AMG case. Although it doesn't offer anything too revolutionary, its solid, quality build, sleek look and small size make it ideal for those who frequently attend LAN parties or just don't have too much space in their home/office. Furthermore, the extra tidbits such as stock case fans, a lockable side panel, removeable HDD cage and TruePower 330-watt power supply are nice bonuses and the handy front ports allow for simple installation of USB and Firewire devices.

 

The bottom line is, if you are looking to upgrade your case and size doesn't matter (no pun intended), we have no problem recommending the Antec Plus 660AMG. Furthermore, at a price of around AU$220, you can't really go wrong. If only it was made out of aluminium.....
