In the lab: Antec’s Cube case, designed by Razer

A little while back, we were intrigued by Antec's Cube Mini-ITX case, designed in partnership with Razer. Antec's engineers fused the usual Razer black-and-green palette with a stylish enclosure whose looks are both classy and unlike anything else on the market. We've got one of these cases in the TR labs now, and we're interested in seeing whether its performance matches its style.

For now, here's a brief refresher on the Cube. It's got room for up to four 2.5" storage devices, one 3.5" hard drive, and graphics cards up to 13.8" (350 mm) long. Light strips and a 120-mm LED fan in Razer green cast a glow in and around the case, and an LED-illuminated Razer logo on the front of the case leaves no doubt about owners' favorite brand. Windows on the top and sides of the Cube show off the components and lighting inside. Keep an eye out for our full review.

    Nothing about this is mini, Not even the pricetag!

    [list<][*<]It's absurdly long front to back, less than an inch shorter than my gargantuan H440 that has room for two 360mm radiators. [/*<][*<]It's fatter than almost any vertical tower on the market, you could almost fit two optical drives side by side in that much width. [/*<][*<]It's as tall as a typical mATX case, perhaps because it has 3 expansion slots rather than the 4 an mATX case needs.[/*<][/list<] If they made it just [i<]half[/i<] and inch taller, it could fit an mATX motherboard and maybe then I could cut it some slack. As it is, it's a ridiculous waste of space considering it can only handle a diddly little mITX board.

    I actually really like the looks of this case. Too bad I just upgraded and chose mATX. Its going to be another 8-10 years before I upgrade again (if I live that long).

    Maybe it’s the camera angle but it doesn’t look very cubish. I thought the idea behind cube chassies were dual chambers. Thoughts?

      The cube label dates back long before the current fashion for dual chambers. The first use I encountered of it was to describe shuttle-style small form factor cases with a square front face.

        But the front/rear faces are not square n this case. I’m just curious what makes it a cube case versus a mini-tower form factor.
