Antec Reveals EKWB Edition Cube Chassis

Antec has just released more details on their new EKWB edition of their Mini-ITX Cube chassis. If it looks familiar to anyone here, it’s because we technically reviewed it very recently, albeit in the Razer Edition format, which was pretty similar with the exception of green LED lighting, a Razer front panel and the green USB ports. Of course, the EKWB edition comes with some unique twists of its own too.
“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 greatful 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.
The mini-ITX chassis comes with 3mm aluminium panels on an 0.8mm steel frame, with support for a single 3.5″ drive, as well as two 2.5″ drives. One of our favourite features is that it supports a triple slot expansion card, a rare thing for a mini-ITX build, and with room for a card as long at 350mm, you can easily fit an enthusiast grade GPU in here. Of course, it comes with some water cooling support too, with room for a 240mm radiator up front, and a 120/140mm in the rear.
LED lighting is on point too, with seven colours that can be changed using controls on the top of the case.
