Japanese premium PC case maker Abee introduced the Acubic C10R line of cubical mini-ITX cases. Available in five metallic color options - black (piano), white (glossy), silver, blue, and red; the cases measure 239 x 229 x 229 mm (LxWxH). Its interiors pack enough room for add-on cards as long as 190 mm (a compact GeForce GTX 660 Ti should make it), and CPU coolers as tall as 55 mm (most C-type coolers should make it). It features one each of 5.25-inch, 3.5-inch, and 2.5-inch drive bays. Ventilation includes a 120 mm front intake fan, and provision for two 60 mm rear exhaust fans. Made with aluminum panels and an opaque acrylic front, the cases weigh about 3.2 kg. They're priced at 27,980¥ (US $320).

Regardless of the card length, not even a "compact 660 Ti" will fit.


A single blanking plate makes it impossible and the distance from said plate to the side of the case that doesn't even have ventilation holes make it impossible to fit 90% of cards.

About the only thing that'd physically fit would be a passive, single-slot low-end card... and I still question if that'd work due to a lack of space or cooling potential.


I think the idea behind this is you run onboard video and be content. ;)



But, it does remind me of a Lian Li and I guess it isn't price so strangely. Not many of these type of cases out there and if the build quality is high then I see this being only marginally ($50 - $80) over-priced compared to its rivals.

Very-very expensive and it even doesn't support dual-slot videocard:mad: Who'd be mad enough to get one of those- definately not an enthusiast- a single-slot 7750 http://www.powercolor.com/Global/products_features.asp?id=442#Specification isn't what you'd call enthusiast-grade. The 5,25" is a space-wasting relict- if you'd need an ODD, you'd get a different case or an external drive. The two 60mm fans will probably generate a "generous" amount of noise.

So, yeah, not impressed....

It looks fantastic, but price and interior is far from fantastic.

Pretty sure I would just get the Bitfenix prodigy for 1/4 the price.
Way over priced and seems it would die of quick because of that.
