OC3D Review: Sunbeamtech UFO Acrylic Cube Case

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



Cue the X-Files music

that actually looks really nice

EDIT: must be odd looking at it and being able to see everything

plus, nowhere to hide cables!

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...
