Sunbeamtech UFO Acrylic Cube case
 
The Sunbeamtech UFO Cube case is an interesting step away from the conventional case, in that you have to build it first before you can use it. One thing that confounds me though is why it's called the UFO, when it very clearly isn't.
 
Having owned one of the first generation of Sunbeamtech Acrylic cases. I am very eager to see what has changed. Anyway, let's not delay the review any further...why don't we look at the UFO Acrylic Cube case' specifications.

When is a UFO not a UFO? When it's a Sunbeamtech case-in-a-box.

Awesome little review there PV. I was suprised at the cost of that thing, looks sexy

I'm guessing a disadvantage would be the fact that watercooling would be almost impossible?

Thanks jiffz. Actually water-cooling it would be a cinch, and it is on my 'to do' list next year.

I like this format. Kinda reminds me of Orac from Blake`s 7. Just need a key thing to slot in the top.

Talking of wc`ing, there`s a project log I can`t find that did something like this from scratch, looked amazing.

haha you saw that. I thought everyone had missed it Yeah I would imagine that Sunbeamtech would be ok with the UFO moniker as it is a pretty well used generic name. I may be wrong though

Im after a case like this - but it main use will be for lans so needs to be sturdy.

But i do like the idea of the mobo on top - makes more sense for airflow + the lack of it that you get in a small case like this.

I want, I want and I want. It fulfils my clear case/purple look perfectly (uv blue is purple to me). Only problem is I need a bigger desk first...

Heh- that's where I'm having problems- can't find one in the UK anywhere. I have my local shop to ask (he will get me anything available in the UK, and I get a trade discount as my friend is self employed) but if that doesn't work I'll have to import one.

You see what i really like about this is that the mobo is on top more SFF PC's should be like this!!!
