Gallery: Cubitek's latest case is a unique take on modular case design. It's three cases in one very interesting design...
It may be considered a truism that if you've seen one PC case, you've pretty seen them all. With few exceptions - ThermalTake's original Level10 comes to mind - case design is largely set in place.
Well, with Cubitek's new Magic Cube chassis, you can add another exception to this very short list.
The Magic Cube takes a leaf out of the Level10's playbook by thermally isolating HDDS, ODDS and motherboard & attendant parts. But rather than keep those thermal pockets attached to the one chassis, Cubitek's effectively built three small cases for each component. And we love it!
We've yet to do a full review, but on paper we love the idea. All the cases - a small one with room for two optical drives or one ODD and a floppy, a middle-sized one with room for eight hard drives, and two fans to cool them all, and a larger case for the mobo, with three fans - are not only well designed and made from sturdy aluminium, but also modular themselves. Most of the chassis construction is secured by screws, so it'll be easy to take each case apart for further modding.
We'll be doing a full review in an upcoming issue of the mag, but for now, check out our gallery of shots to learn about this unique new case.
