EXTERIOR & FAN

The exterior dimensions of the ISK 100 are 24.8 x 7.0 x 21.2 cm or 9.8 x 2.8 x 8.3" (H x W x D, when oriented vertically) with a volume of 3.7 liters. Its big brother, the ISK 300 is narrower and taller by about one inch, but is 4.6" deeper; the 7 liter volume makes it nearly twice as big as the 100. The case weighs just 1.2 kg or 2.6 lb out of the box.


The plastic exterior is pleasant enough, but the protruding off-center fan is a bit of an eyesore. It is positioned to be directly above the processor/heatsink of most mini-ITX motherboards.


The side panels are secured with a pair of screws each. There is additional ventilation at the sides.


The other side is not nearly as well ventilated with just a few slits running down the edges.


Once the screws are removed, the two covers simply pull apart. They are loosely attached to the rest of the chassis using round tabs, like the ones found on the front bezels of numerous tower cases.


The 100 mm fan has 13 very thin blades. With curved struts and a support ring between the hub and exterior casing, it resembles Scythe's 12 mm thick Slip Streams.


A small switch is located at one corner to control the fan's speed. There are only two settings. It is inconveniently located on the inside.
