Antec Cube Designed By Razer Mini-ITX Case Review

   Lately we see more and more manufacturers come together to jointly release products and although this may indeed seem as somewhat strange to many of you out there it has in fact been happening in other areas of the industry for as long as i can remember (and quite successfully at that). Personally I’ve always welcomed joint projects now only because they tend to be more "complete" in some ways but also because when you have more people involved you have a better chance of creating something unique (or at least something close to unique). Antec came together with EK Water Blocks (EKWB) and Razer not too long ago in order to release not one but two different versions of their newest Mini-ITX PC case called the Cube. We had the EKWB version a few months back and today after quite a bit of wait with us we have the Designed by Razer (Special Edition in the EU) model.

   For 30 years, Antec, Inc. has been the global leader in high-performance computer components and accessories for the gaming, PC upgrade and Do-It-Yourself markets, being the pioneer and market leader for quiet, efficient and innovative products such as the P280 and SOLO II enclosures as well as for their award-winning PSUs having the lowest returns in the industry. Antec continues to further the industry with performance-rich enclosures, efficient power supplies, reliable cooling components, the cutting-edge Antec Advance accessories line, and the Antec Mobile Products (A.M.P). Founded in 1986, Antec is headquartered in Fremont, California, with additional offices in The Netherlands, Germany, China and Taiwan.

   As also mentioned in our Cube by EKWB review the main differences these two versions have are primarily aesthetic ones so for starters although the Designed By Razer model features just Green LEDs and of course the Razer logo (illuminated) the EKWB version features RGB LED illumination (7 different colors) and the EKWB logo. Secondary differences include a Green LED 120mm fan, signature design elements and a 6-fan hub for the Razer version and a LED light switch, 6-fan hub and a 120mm white LED fan for the EKWB model. Both models are based on a hexagonal design, are identical in size, feature 3 transparent darkened acrylic windows (sides and top) and have enough interior space to support a 240mm radiator (up to 60mm thick) at the front, four 2.5" drives (or two 2.5" and one 3.5"), three single slot cards, graphics cards up to 350mm in length, CPU coolers up to 190mm in height and power supply units up to 200m long.
