A brand new case from Cooler Master that innovates with a brand new idea. With its Qube 500 Flatpack, you get a disassembled case through which you assemble your configuration as you unpack and assemble the case.
Qube 500 Flatpack: self-assembly and extremely customizable!
When you obtain this mannequin, it is available in a small, flat cardboard field. So, as you unpack the parts, you can begin assembling your configuration. And the very first thing you’re taking out of the field is the motherboard tray. Now you can begin screwing it onto the tray. Next comes the facility provide slot, then the rear of the case, the place the graphics card can be mounted, and so forth (see demonstration right here).
The different benefit of getting a mannequin that may be assembled on this approach lies within the scope for personalisation. As every panel will be accessed individually, it’s simple to make cut-outs or paint jobs as required. There’s no must pop rivets and reattach them after eradicating the motherboard tray, for instance. That’s for the modding side, in any other case, we think about that numerous equipment can be out there, and the model has indicated that it’ll make plans out there for 3D printing!
Once the PC is assembled, we’re confronted with a case measuring 231 (W) x 406 (D) x 415 (H) mm. Inside, there’s ample area for an E-ATX motherboard (296 mm extensive). For the cooler, graphics card and energy provide, we’ve got 172 mm, 360 mm and 173 mm respectively. Nevertheless, within the case of a watercooling radiator, this can be a little disappointing, for the reason that case is simply appropriate with 240 mm blocks. However, this may be defined by the compact dimensions of this mannequin.
Prices are relatively reasonably priced, at €94.99 for the traditional model and €104.99 for the Macaron Edition. The Macaron Edition is available in yellow and inexperienced for the entrance and prime of the case.
