Case Build & Finished Product
The front being a solid panel has nothing to show post-build. It looks the same when new versus when built.
Looking through the main chamber and we see that everything fills in quite well. The test build goes in without an issue, and here we also show that a 120mm AIO can mount in the top possibly even a 240mm AIO. However, the previously mentioned structural integrity, means it may be a bit shaky. Overall the cable management in the Macube 310 does an excellent job of making a great looking main chamber overall. One thing to note is that the GPU support was too short to reach our GPU or even slightly too short to reach its elongated shroud. The grommets were a hassle with the 24-pin cable and had to be reseated once the cable was installed.
The rear filled in as expected, and the outer cover does an excellent job of hiding the expansion slots mounting.
The cable management area once again is where I feel the Macube 310P makes up for some of the previously mentioned shortcomings. As you can see, the multitude of tie-downs and generous width to the area allows for tucking away of excess cabling while also enabling side by side runs of cables fastened to the chassis for an overall neat appearance. This cable management capability makes me much more pleased with the Macube overall as the discovered abilities enriched the build experience.
With the chassis built entirely, you can see that the tinted glass helps mask any internal cable management blemishes you may have with the system powered off. However, when it is lit, all bets are off if you have any form of internal lighting.
Turn the key on your rig, and the RGB glows, here we now had to shorten our exposure time a bit to give a more relevant look at what the system looked like to my eyes. The tinted glass works well to make the lit components jump out at you while the rest fades into a semi shrouded background to the party, almost like a digital mullet. The RGB party up front, while the darker non-lit components fade to the background where they do the work. Welp, not quite the business in the front party in the back of a traditional mullet, but I still feel a reverse digital mullet is applicable.
