Abee Unveils Acubic D80 Series ATX Mid-Tower Cases

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.
