Antec Cube-Designed by Razer Mini-ITX Chassis Preview

Case Build & Finished Product




The Cube looks a lot like it did when we started, but through the fully open front panel, we can see wiring, the exhaust fan, and even the bright red SATA cable peeking through the mesh. Clean, aggressive, and stylish, the Cube is hard to deny its looks from this angle.





The motherboard went right into place, and wiring it up to power and the front panel can be kept clean. We had plenty of room for the thick radiator and push/pull fans at the front, but we can see that the video card could use some additional support to keep it level inside of the case.




We found that the dust shield will fit without issue, but we did run into slight issues at the back. The side of the chassis further out than the back of the case, and it makes getting the screws into the expansion slots very awkward. Also, the PSU installation was able to happen but not flat against the steel as we would have liked.




Moving in a bit closer, you can plainly see our issue with the PSU. The area needs to be cut out wider at the sides so that it can accommodate the PSU plug socket correctly. This is not an issue we tend to run into, but something that Antec and Razer seem to have overlooked.




We ran the exhaust fan and the AIO wires to the fan hub for power and bundled what wiring we could to keep it out of the way of the storage drives. The PSU has plenty of room, and we don't need to worry about panel fitment, as it snaps over the wiring, rather than trying to slide past it.




The tint on the side panel is a little too dark in our opinion. The whole point of having a window is to see the goodies you have inside of the chassis, and without anything being powered, it is just a mix of shadows and light shining through various points of the case. Altogether, though, we do like the style of this Cube and appreciate the angles and shape.




Once powered, and the switch at the back of the chassis turned on, the Cube comes to life with green light. The logo on the front is now glowing, the rear exhaust fan is green LED illuminated, and the white strips along the bottom are now brightly glowing green as well.
