Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The HTPX ICE we are about to see is an all aluminum built tower chassis that of course offers room for any motherboard up to and including the HPTX form factor.
On the outside the top and bottom make gentle curved transitions from the front to back, but the sides are flat to the frame and have ninety degree corners where the panels meet the other parts of the exterior. Down the front you get five brushed covers in the 5.25" bays to match the rest of the black anodized, brushed aluminum exterior finish. The lower half of the front and a large pair of areas on the top of the chassis are ventilated and covered with mesh, but as for the rest of the chassis, it's just large expanses of brushed aluminum.
On the inside of the chassis you will find the five 5.25" bays of course and room for eight storage drives in two different sections of the cages, but both use little wheels to sit in the frames much like what Lian Li does. Cooling is handled with a 200mm blue LED fan in the front, a pair of blue LED 140mm fans in the top and a plain 120mm fan in the back. Under the rear exhaust fan you will find that this version of the chassis has ten expansion slots to take on any Quad SLI or Crossfire setup with video cards up to 430mm in length.
The one thing that sort of took me back a step when I first looked at this chassis was the price; I mean isn't part of their mission to make affordable solutions? Even though the cases were just released at the beginning of this month and as far as US sales, I can't seem to locate any, but via e-mails between Cubitek and I, I was made aware of the MSRP.
For the HPTX ICE as you are about to see it, it is going to set you back $359.90 to get the chassis we are going to be going over with a fine tooth comb. To be really blunt, for this sort of price, Cubitek best be on their toes with this chassis or they are really going to have a tough battle going against already well established high-end, aluminum chassis manufacturers.
