Antec Six Hundred V2 Case Review

Back in January Antec announced an update to their Six Hundred gaming case calling the new versions V2.  We did not actually get a chance to check out the original Six Hundred case, but from what we have seen Antec has made some changes and added a few things to the Six Hundred case to bring it up to date.  Some of those features include a front-loaded 2.5″ hot swap hard drive caddy (SSD compatible), CPU cutout for installation of after-market coolers, a cable management compartment for tidier routing and a windowed top panel for unique “moonroof” visibility.  Let’s check the Six Hundred V2 out!
