Cubitek Unveils XL Tank PC Case

Cubitek unveiled its third PC case for high-end/gaming PCs, the XL Tank. Although "XL" in name, it's an ATX mid-tower measuring 230 (W) x 490 (H) x 525 (D) mm. It makes use of thicker sheets of steel to fabricate the frame, while the panels are made of aluminum. The case features a standard interior with a motherboard tray that has holes at the right spots to manage certain kinds of CPU coolers and cables. An expansion card retention beam ensures long graphics cards don't suffer PCB bending over time. Drive bays include four 5.25", one of which can turn into an exposed 3.5". There are six internal 3.5" bays.

Ventilation is care of a large 230 mm front intake fan, a 140 mm rear exhaust, and provision for two 140 mm fans at the top. The front-panel is positioned on the top, and includes two USB 3.0, apart from eSATA and audio. Two holes at the rear let you pass water cooling tubing through. Cubitek did not give out pricing or availability information.

Doesn't look so special to me. And I think it will be pretty cramped once filled with hardware.
Would only make sense to buy if its cheaper than an equivalent Lian Li case.

But their location sucks. That whole cut out area & ports are huge dust magnets on top mounted cases.

Looks like an imitation Lian-Li, a cheaply made one at that. Could have at least painted the inside black or something, or included more value for money features like the CM 690 II Advanced with the stylings of a Lian-Li or a Corsair Obsidian 800D, but at a cheaper price.

Most likely would make a good case for moding...the outside is "plain jane" in looks and I agree it looks cramped inside.

Naah, I think the edges look pretty smooth.

I kinda like it. Looks pretty good to me, but it all comes down to price.
