    Inter-Tech rolled out a pair of cube-shaped cases, the E-D3 Black, and the E-D5 Black, pictured below in that order. The two are built with 1.5 mm-thick brushed aluminium panels, which double up as its framework. The E-D3 Black is the more compact of the two, measuring 260 mm x 222 mm x 224 mm. It can hold mini-ITX motherboards, and offers two expansion slot bays. It offers a single 3.5-inch drive bay, which can hold a two 9 mm-thick 2.5-inch drives instead of a standard 3.5-inch one. Ventilation includes a 120 mm top exhaust, a 60 mm rear exhaust, and 120 mm side intake vents over the PSU bay.

    The E-D5 Black, on the other hand, is roomier, measuring 285 mm x 222 mm x 270 mm. It can hold micro-ATX and mini-ITX motherboards, with four expansion slot bays on offer. There are two 3.5-inch drive bays, which can each hold up to two 9 mm-thick 2.5-inch drives instead of 3.5-inch ones. Ventilation includes a 120 mm top, a 60 mm rear exhaust, and vents over the PSU bay, much like on its sibling. Connectivity on both cases include USB 3.0 and USB 2.0/1.1 ports, HDA jacks, and holes for Wi-Fi antennae. Inter-Tech didn't reveal pricing.

    The micro-ATX one seems tasty, especially if you could somehow fit 2X 120mm fans up top. It will come down to the price though.

    looks nice but i think they should move the psu to the left and the board tray to the right so you can use bigger hsf and leave more room for cooling

    Inter tech is well know in Europe as company who haves wrost PSUs in the market and paper cases. Except nothing from these cases.

    Starting to get a little bored with all the ITX stuff of late. I guess having a m-ATX version is a little better but these cubes are so blasé.

    250D I think is about as good as it gets from Corsair as far as a cube design goes.
