    Default Antec Solo II and Kuhler 920

    Today we're looking at the Antec Solo II, designed with quiet computing in mind; the inner layer is constructed of a polycarbonate to absorb noise while the outer layer is made from steel. As we're looking at the Solo I, we have a bonus today in the form of the Antec Kuhler 920. It's a self-contained liquid cooling unit, and we're going to give it a whirl inside the Solo II.

    Nice review. That case would be great for the family computer; it has great looks and would contain noise very well. I would like to build an AMD APU set up in it for the wife and kids to use. Don't think I'd use it for gaming though. Very impressed with the Antec 920 though. Unless my memory is off, I think it out performs the H80.

    Its a nice solid chassis beautiful to look at, and was one of my favorites. The cooler is very thick and in a push pull configuration will do the job better then most.
    Keep in mind its not like a full blown water system, so when pushed it will only take you so far.

    Nice!! This case kind of reminds me of the corsair 300R as far and size and versatility goes... Only thing I didn't like about the case is PSU being on top...

    I'm seeing some weird text in the last paragraph on page one of the review:
    Antec�¢ï¿½ï¿½s offering of enclosures includes a wide range of cases, such as its advanced Performance One Series, economical New Solution Series and VERIS family of media components designed for the home theater PC market.
