There are a few cube chassis manufacturers out there, but CaseLabs guns for the ultimate chassis with their MAGNUM M8 and M10, right out of the gates. Will it come out guns blazing and mowing down everything in its path or end up shooting nothing but blanks? We aim to find out!

Very nice. It's rugged, functional, and with good options. Both side panels have the option of being solid, vented or windowed (a big plus IMO) and drive/device quantities/positions are flexible.

Darksaber said:
Both side panels of the chassis have two large air vents, placed in different locations for best results of each compartment. I would have liked to see the possibility to install fans here along with the option for dust filters as well.

It looks like there's an accessory for that - Quad 120mm Fan Mount - for $20.

Four 120mm fans for massive cooling. Attaches to the side of the case. Fans line up wit the perforation pattern on the MB ventilated door for optimum performance. Thumbscrews included.


Will certainly keep my eye on this company. Would like to see an ITX motherboard mount plate for a secondary internal system in the future :D

Thanks for the review. This case has been on my dream list since the first prototypes were shown over at OCN. It doesn't receive all of the publicity and fanfare that it deserves, and your article goes a long way towards fixing that.

"Even so, for those rare, extreme uses, there is no other case out there that offers this much space for radiators, drives and fans."

Mountain Mods.


Is there a USB 3.0 option?

Have you actually looked closely at a Mountain Mods case? Comparing MM to Case Labs is like comparing a nice shoe box to a cigar humidor.
