In the introduction we mentioned that Cubitek have adopted the 'Less is More' approach to the design of a few of their cases, the Mini Cube is no exception. The front and side panels are brushed black aluminium which adds to its elegance and subtleness of the case and it could be easily mistaken for another electrical item, such as a sub woofer. The company logo located at the bottom of the front panel is the only giveaway that this is a PC case.
Situated on the front panel itself are the usual power and reset buttons in addition to power & hard drive activity lights.
Located at the top of the case are; 2x USB 2.0 ports, 2x USB 3.0 ports and the input jacks for stereo output and mic input.
Towards the side of the case, we get to see how nice the brushed aluminium looks. Not only does this help towards the weight of the case, as it weighs next to nothing. The stylish effect is always stunning to look at.
The rear of the case has a slightly different styling to the rest of the case as Cubitek have chosen to keep the rear panel plain Aluminium. This doesn't take anything away from the aesthetics of the case as most of the time the rear panel is never in view. Cooling is provided by a stamped out area where an 80mm or 90mm fan can be fitted and additional venting is added by 2 vented blanking plates which can be removed (via thumb screw) to fit a dual width graphics card or a single width card with an additional PCI component (should your motherboard support it).
