Antec Inc., a leading provider of high-performance computer components and accessories for the gaming, PC upgrade and Do-It-Yourself market, has cooperated with EK Water Blocks (EKWB) to create a new Mini ITX case which offers PC enthusiasts the best watercooling options in a small format case. The Cube’s case design has been certified by EKWB and is now available.
“This is the first time in the history of PC peripherals that a case manufacturer cooperated with a cooling company to offer enthusiasts the best of both worlds: an elegant, compact design paired with internal structures to install efficient cooling options”, explains Jack Wu, General Manager Europe at Antec. “Our double-branded PC chassis will demonstrate a whole new scenario on the market for computer peripherals. We are very proud of this collaboration with EK Water Blocks.”
“Here at EKWB we are always pushing the boundaries of what is possible. We are grateful for the collaboration with Antec, which enables us to offer the computer enthusiast a great experience in liquid cooling, using Antec cases”, says Mark Tanko, CEO at EKWB.
Cube is a compact mini ITX case with uncompromised hardware compatibility. The frame measures 362 mm x 250 mm x 460 mm (L x W x H) and features a unique leaned forward design with a hybrid structure made of 3 mm Aluminium and 0.8 mm cold-rolled steel. The enclosure offers one 3.5″ HDD drive bay, two 2.5″ SDD bays and three expansion slots. It offers space for graphics cards with a length of up to 350 mm. A total of four fan mounts ensure sufficient cooling. The Antec Cube is water-cooling ready with space for a 240mm radiator.
As another optical highlight, Cube offers an attractive panel & bottom lighting system in seven colours which can easily be adjusted on the top of the case. Last but not least, the case offers an innovative click system which enables to open and close the case in a quick and easy way. This thought-out case could serve as a conventional PC, gaming rig, or home theatre device and media center, but is also well-suited for professional users.
