ABKONCORE aren’t a well-known company in the west, but they’ve been operating in South Korea since 2001. Established as Absolute Korea, ABKONCORE have grown into a major supplier of all the usual parts. That means headsets, keyboards, mice, cooling, cases and power supplies. The ABKONCORE H600X is their latest in the ‘case’ category, setting itself apart with a mesh front and two preinstalled 200mm front fans as well as the standard 120mm exhaust.
There’s an elephant in the room when talking about this case – the Cooler Master H500 series. 200mm fans and a mesh front are hardly patentable, but the similarity between the H500 and H600 is obvious. We wouldn’t call this a copy though. ABKONCORE have gona much smaller in all directions, with the H600X cutting nearly 10cm off the length, 5cm or so off the height, and 2cm off the width. This means reduced clearances, and on paper would hurt performance as airflow is forced to make tighter turns. On the other hand the H600X certainly comes out cheaper, with ABKONCORE quoting an MSRP of €82.95 in Europe and $92.95 in the US.
