Have you ever had the pleasure of attending a Piano recital? As a young child I was introduced to classical music when my mother took me for the very first time to Radio City Music Hall, to see an accomplished pianist play her very first concert and piano Sonata Solo.

There’s something to be said about appreciating the beauty and simplicity of such a performance, and there’s also some similarities when we look at other things from walks of life that try to pursue such values. The tech world may not be quite as sublime, but Antec is a company that has a popular Sonata lineup, and it’s likely no coincidence their products also seek to achieve an elegant simplicity.

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.

Let’s find out of the Solo II and Kuhler 920 strike the mark or miss a beat.
