Cubitek Launches ''Magic Cube'' Modular Case Series

Cubitek presents another unique case series after the successful launch of the “Tank” Series. The “Magic Cube” enclosures are made of 100% Aluminum and offer a revolutionary, modular design. Two models - the Magic Cube B210 and Magic Cube B211 with freely configurable modules are available immediately.

After the success of the “Tattoo” series and the launch of the highly anticipated, all Aluminum “Tank” family of enclosures, Cubitek presents an absolutely unique new case concept. Also constructed purely of Aluminum, all traditional parts of a normal chassis have been modularized with the Magic Cube cases. These sets consist of three separate enclosures: the main module for the motherboard, CPU and graphic cards, the storage module for 3.5 inch hard drives and the drive module for optical drives and card readers.
Both Cubitek Magic Cube cases have an anodized black layer on the outside and inside, while the use of Aluminum makes them extremely light weight. The heart of the system consists of the main module, which may house a Micro-ATX, ATX or even E-ATX mainboard. Cubitek has also added two USB 3.0, one eSATA and a pair of Audio connectivity to the chassis. Since the Magic Cube can easily fit long graphic cards with up to 310 mm length and can be used for high-performance processors, a potent cooling system is also possible. CPU coolers with a height of up to 180 mm along with four included fans within the mainboard module guarantee a cool and stable system. Two 2.5 inch hard drives may also be installed on the floor of this module.

The separate drive module offers enough space for two 5.25 inch units, while a single slot may also be used for 3.5 inch drives or card readers thanks to the included adapter. The Cubitek Magic Cube cases differentiate themselves through the different sized HDD modules, as the Magic Cube B210 offers enough space for three 3.5 inch hard drives and a pair of 2.5 inch ones, while the Magic Cube B211 can hold up to eight 3.5 inch units and two 2.5 inch drives. Both the drive and storage modules have multiple openings through which one can route all cables back to the main module.

If a separation of all three modules is not wanted, the user may configure the three parts freely by connecting them to each other. One can connect the drive and storage modules, while placing the main unit next to them for examples. Such possibilities make the seamless integration into an existing work space or home theater a breeze.

The Cubitek ”Magic Cube“ series is available immediately at www.caseking.de. The Magic Cube B210 carries a price tag of 179.90 Euro, while the Magic Cube B211 sells for 199.90 Euro. A special overview of the new series can be found at www.caseking.de/magic-cube.

Picts of internals plz k thx!

Like the concept, but for the money I'd likely swing an Antec or other brand if I wanted all metal. Has better cooling too. I do like looks on my cases but I'm leaning more and more towards ones with better cooling setups that include dust filters. Course where I live we get a lot of dirt.

They need an optional fourth "cube" to enclose an AT-style PSU
with a separate ON/OFF switch. This will solve a few problems
e.g. no need for extension cables when the cubes are separated,
as in the photo with a monitor in between; and, some of us
would like to house ramdisks like the ACARD ANS-9010
in an external enclosure, and power the volatile RAM
with a second PSU that does not switch OFF when
the OS is shutdown.

One more idea: we connect a Highpoint RocketRAID 2322
with multi-lane "Infiniband" cables which like to mate via
either an empty PCI slot, or empty SCSI slot: I don't know
how long those multi-lane cables are, at present.
