Cubitek, a manufacturer of PC chassis, is pleased to announce their new line of chassis - ICE Series. Including 5 new models, these ICE Series chassis using a 2.5 (mm) extrusion aluminum construction are stronger than standard aluminum cases, yet thinner than other extrusion aluminum chassis on the market. This unique build gives ICE Series a strong frame while still keeping a more lightweight design.



5 Models from Mini-ITX to HPTX
Cubitek's ICE Series features five new models designed for different sized motherboards:
Anti-Vibration Design

The sturdy extrusion aluminum frame translates to reduced vibration. The hard drives inside the cage body are mounted with thick rubber rings that simply slide into the drive bay and prevent vibration noise. Along with vibration reducing side panels with rubber strips, the ICE Series minimizes vibration-induced noise with its solid form.



Efficient Thermal Cooling

The extrusion aluminum build dissipates heat faster than steel built chassis keeping your system cool. From mATX on up, all models feature a large 200 (mm) fan in the front as well as a 140 (mm) on the top and a 120 (mm) fan in the back. The well-placed fans and interior layout keep your hardware at optimum system temperatures.



Motherboard Tray Designed for Cable Management

The motherboard tray is well-designed with large cut-outs for CPU cooler mounting and plenty of rubber protected holes to guide cables to the 0.7" (19 mm) space behind the motherboard tray. The u-shaped clips behind the motherboard allow you to easily fasten you wires ,making cable management easy and keeping your system neat and organized.



Easy Access Connectivity

All five models of the ICE Series feature an easy-to-reach I/O panel on the top of the chassis including: 2x USB 3.0 ports, 2x USB 2.0 ports, and gold-plated audio input/output with anti-jamming capabilities.

I can't help but think it's saying it is capable of removing jam from the audio ports.

I guess i should go find out what an audio port with anti-jamming capability means.

It certainly could use a better name. An "anti-jam audio port" isn't going to attract those who listen to music on their computer.

Hehehe, I agree!:D Where the hell is Geneva dude?

If I planned on spending this kind of money on a chassis, it would be from Caselabs! So far they only make very large water-cooling dual psu cases, but that is all going to change in a couple of months when they usher in a new line of mid-towers in more conventional designs. They already have my $299.95.

Oh yeah! So far they're the only ones who have been able to draw me away from Lian-Li.
