    Aerocool Advanced Technologies, one of worlds leading manufacturers of excellent gaming PC gear, expands its award-winning Dead Silence series by adding three new DS Cube models. Due to the big success of the DS Cube chassis in the gaming and enthusiast community, additional fresh colors green, blue and pink are available as of today.

    The new models have received some minor modifications, which differ from the already released color models, such as black, white, red, orange, gold, red and black/white. Aerocool highlighted the mainboard tray and all the drive bays by painting them in the individual model's color.

    The option between a Standard and Window version remains for all the nine models. Furthermore, each of the models is equipped with a removable and exchangeable top-cover, allowing users to switch between the standards version for silence operation and a mesh-design version for improved airflow. Solid SGCC steel with a thickness of 0,8 mm provides the necessary sturdiness and reduces the noise-level. All the nine DS Cube models are offering enough space for High-End components, yet are compact enough to be easily taken to a LAN-Party!

    Latest Mini-ITX and Micro-ATX motherboards as well as VGA cards with the maximum length of 320 mm can be easily mounted. The inside offers enough space for big CPU coolers (up to 190 mm) and even water-coolers. Aerocool DS Cube is using the available space more efficient by mounting the motherboard in horizontal direction, which makes it even easier to mount the main components inside the chassis. The top-panel can be removed to ease the mounting process further, offering unchallenged usability. In addition, up to three 3,5 inch and two 2,5 inch Hard Drives and Solid State Disks can be mounted in the tool-free bays, which are based on trays with anti-vibration capabilities.

    All DS Cube models are supplied with two pre-installed case fans. One 200 mm fan (600 rpm) is mounted in the front and one 120 mm fan (800 rpm) is located in the rear. This constellation offers constant airflow at a very low noise level. The well-thought-out interior layout of the DS Cube benefits the cooling of hardware. Users are able to make individual adjustments by mounting two 120 mm or 140 mm case fans in the top panel or replacing the existing fans by other models according to their requirements.

    The new Dead Silence Cube models are available from retailers and online shops starting this week.

    I was quite keen on getting one of these cases until I saw one in the real world...for a Mini-Micro ATX case they're BIG, too big, and just defeats the purpose of having a small motherboard in the first place.

    Photos on the web really don't convey the true size and bulk of these cases and I would urge anyone thinking of buying one to do their best and actually see one for real before finally deciding.

    They're the same size as the Bitfenix Prodigy, which can fit both mITX and mATX in depending on the orientation. They're pretty popular these days, but I vastly prefer the Aerocool to the Prodigy.

    This isn't exactly designed to me miniscule, if people want small and compact, they go for ITX, but I can see where you're coming from. They take up far less height than an ATX case. I came from a TJ07 and Phantom EATX case, so this thing is tiny in comparison.

    Damn I am so tempted to get one of these. I saw one at one of my local computer shops and wow such an improvement in finish and build quality compared to old stuff of Aerocool. I still have an Aerocool M40 being used for an HTPC and even though I have sliced my hand open on a sharp edge when the top half of the case folded back on top of the bottom half when a friend of mine bumped it - with my hand caught in between - I still really admire the innovative designs from Aerocool.

    I have one of these (these days im only likin/ prefering horizontal oriented board layouts), got the pure black edition and yes, size is similar to the bitfenix prodigy itx.
    Why add colors for the interior if its gonna be covered by components and sidepanel anyway? (sidepanel has windowed but covers the lower part) and most folks will detach that ODD bay anyway (well i still have mine attached tho >_> ).

    This is not exactly a small case, or rather, its wide as to accept a horizontal matx board. Could have been not so tall but maybe its ok if you want to add some large radiators on top.

    as for reference from bitfenix prodigy:

    but it looks pretty compact and simple, not bulky

    Nice comparison, the DS cube certainly looks like it utilises space a little better than the prodigy but I think most of that is down to the feet/handles of the prodigy. I think a comparison to the handleless/feetless Phenom might be better. That being said the DS cube's innards look better laid out than the Prodigy M/Phenom M (mATX variations of the prodigy/phenom), especially as I personally would prefer to have a horizontal mobo compared to a vertical one that you would get with Bitfenix's mATX offerings.

    well its certainly smaller (height and length) than my previous mid tower case, it just went a bit fatter heh (like i mentioned on my post, its wider)

    remove the feet extension and handle and yeah prodigy is smaller, but could also be said for the DS, the top part really has lots of space when eliminated, it could also shrinked down, i just added some 2 120mm fan to it.

    Width is about the same even when the prodigy is supposed to only accommodate an itx board, maybe because the prodigy has extra space on each side for cable management which takes up extra width.
