Introduction

I would like to thank Antec for supplying the review sample.


These days many brands have gone the route of buying OEM frames and adjusting the tooling slightly to accommodate their needs. This is actually not bad since OEMs have really stepped up their game in recent years, and many of the enclosures offered by well-known brands are actually quite solid as a result. Thus, seeing a unique chassis is getting rarer. The Antec Dark Cube is a unique chassis from the brand that tries to walk a line most other brands avoid for fear of doing wrong: an upside, custom-tooled ITX chassis, which is a challenging prospect in any case regardless of size because the potent air-cooling of GPUs usually isn't purpose-built for it as their fans push air into the heatsink. On top of that, Antec made the Dark Cube spacious enough to even handle an M-ATX motherboard as well.
