    Cubitek, a manufacturer of PC chassis, is pleased to announce the world's smallest case supporting an EATX motherboard - Magic Cube AIO. Cubitek's Magic Cube AIO is ideal for gamers wanting the power of an EATX in a size that is easy to carry to LAN parties, as well as users who want to build a high-performance PC but have a limited computing area.

    Optimized Hardware Support in a Ultra Compact Size

    With the dimensions of 9.61" x 19.36" x 18.78" (W x H x D), the aluminum constructed Magic Cube AIO is designed to make the most out of every available space – allowing users to install the hardware they want in a chassis with a exceptionally small footprint.

    The Magic Cube AIO doesn't waste space in its placement options for its 3.5" HDDs and 2.5" SSDs. One 3.5" HDD and one 2.5" SSD are designed to be placed on top of the 5.25" optical drive cage, while another 3.5" HDD fits below the same 5.25" optical drive cage which is located at the bottom of the chassis. Three more 3.5" HDDs and one more 2.5" SSD can be easily installed behind the motherboard tray.

    Despite of the Magic Cube AIO's small chassis size, there is room for VGA cards up to 14.17" (360 mm) in length, enough for the latest graphics cards on the market, thanks to its great internal layout. The future expandability.

    Efficient Cooling and Cable Management

    The front two 140 (mm) fans, rear 120 (mm) fan, and top 140 (mm) fan with blue LED illumination keep your hardware within the Magic Cube AIO at stable system temperatures. The cool air can travel unobstructed throughout the case thanks to the 0.7" (19 mm) space behind the motherboard tray for neat and easy cable management. For even more cooling, the latest CPU coolers with a maximum height of 7.1" (180 mm) can be easily installed inside the Magic Cube AIO.

    Easy Access Connectivity

    The two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and gold-plated audio input/output with anti-jamming capabilities are all easy-to-reach and use as they are located on the front panel.

    Pricing and Availability

    Magic Cube AIO will be available through selected partners in various countries in the beginning of May at the suggested retail price of USD $ 279.90 excluding VAT.The two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and gold-plated audio input/output with anti-jamming capabilities are all easy-to-reach and use as they are located on the front panel.

    If it's aluminum seems right (think Lian Li).
    Nevertheless, that looks like an awesome case for those like me that have switched to NAS or other kind of external storage and only use one or two 2.5" SSDs in their systems.
    I can even see some nice watercooling possibilities inside :)

    Like the layout, not the price. Aluminum doesn't make it 2x the price.

    No they are screws where you can mount two case fans or a water cooling radiator.

    Here you can see the screws almost taken out and you can see the two case fans:

    I like the idea of having it clean inside like this though. Currently in my gaming rig I have one Intel 320 120GB SSD (OS+Programs), five Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB HDDs 4.5TB RAID 0 (Steam+Origin+MS LIVE Games about 1TB so far), and two Western Digital Raptor 36.7GB HDDs 72GB RAID 0 (Download file storage+Pagefile+Temp Files like Internet cache, system files, install files) so it looks like I could fit all those drives in that case still. Price is way too high though.
