MSI Cubi 5 10M Comet Lake Mini-PC

A Closer Look

As for the system itself, it’s about what you would expect from a mini PC. We’ve seen this form factor quite a few times over the years now, big enough to fit a decent processor and some good storage options, but still compact enough that you could fit it on the back of a monitor comfortably.

What I do like is the front panel, where you’ll find a large power button, USB 3.0 and Type C, as well as the audio jacks. It’s nice, clean, simple and practical.

Around the side of the system, you’ll find plenty of ventilation. This system is actively cooled with an internal fan rather than passively, but that should come as little surprise given the more powerful processor it contains. That’s in i5-10210U @ 2.12 GHz, 4-core and 8-threads.

Up on the top there is more ventilation again, ensuring that heat can easily leave the system, however, the other half is a brushed aluminium effect on the plastic with a clean MSI logo in the corner.

On the underside, you’ll find even more ventilation, I think it’s safe to say that is ventilation all this thing which is a good sign. There are a few screw holes in the base which I assume can be used for mounting an SSD internally. Then there are two keyhole slots which can be used to lock the system onto the VESA mounting plate.

Finally, we have the rear I/O. Here you will find dual display outputs with HDMI at the top and DisplayPort at the bottom. Of course, outputs at the same time on high resolution. As for networking, you get both the super-fast Intel Wi-Fi 6, as well as gigabit LAN. Connectivity looks great as well, as with the two USB ports on the front, you get four more back here; more than enough to hook up a keyboard, mouse and any other peripherals you may have.
