    Japanese PC case maker Abee unveiled the Acubic D80 series ATX mid-tower cases. It is characterized by thick steel panels, which can be 1 mm-thick in some parts (such as detachable panels), and 0.8 mm-thick on others (such as the framework). The thicker steel makes it heavy, but also vibrates lesser, resulting in lower noise output by vibration. The outer walls of the panels are given a fine matte finish that doesn't invite prints.

    Internally, the Acubic D80 uses two drive cages, one which stacks drives on top of each other, and the other besides each other, like dominoes. The arrangement creates over 32 cm of legroom for expansion cards. A total of five 3.5-inch drives, a slot of one of which converts to two 2.5-inch bays, can be installed.

    Ventilation includes two 120 mm front intakes, and a 120 mm rear exhaust. The case sees a return of the top-mounted PSU bay. Front-panel connectivity includes USB 3.0 (standard header) and HD audio. Measuring 204 x 426 x 415 mm (WxDxH), it weighs about 8 kg. It is available in two color options: white (ACE-D80-SBK) and black (ACE-D80-SW). The two are priced at 20,980 JPY (US $256).

    I would like this more if it had no 5.25" bays so the front will be solid. It looks nice and sleek. but way over priced.

    LOL at the price... I'd expect something aluminum with noise dampening material and some other special feature/s for that price... How would air get into that case? I don't see holes on the front or side... From a small opening at the bottom or the front panel maybe???

    the bottom of the front panel is probably open.

    Looks like a sound killer.

    I'd prefer a PSU bottom mounted, and with only 1 5.25" bay instead of two. No air intakes within reason, and at that price it would have to come with a miracle vending machine. What were the valuation people thinking?

    Me too, although I always wondered why PSU-on-top arrangements would not leave more space between the PSU and motherboard ... not much, maybe an inch, to support some of the heftier heatsinks.
