Spire, a Netherlands-based manufacturer of PC cases and cooling equipment, has announced a new chassis, the Powercube 702.
The Mini-ITX is a chassis with room for only single-slot expansion cards. It is made of 0.5 mm SGCC metal and has a pre-installed 300 W power supply included. The chassis has room for either 80 or 60 mm front and rear fans, respectively, as well as space for a single 5.25" optical drive and a single 3.5" drive. Connectivity is taken care of by front USB 2.0 connections as well as a pair of AC97 audio connections, which can be found behind the front I/O flap.
The Spire Powercube 702 comes with a two year warranty, and it features an MSRP of $57.95.
If you have to replace the power supply and do not mind a slightly larger case, May as well get the SG05 because by it self it can be had for cheap(or picked up with a 300 or 450 watt power supply).
The case design still seems interesting.
Looks cheap the way the front cover attaches to the rest of the case and the way the silver trim just stops.
I like cases with clean and simple lines, but this one just doesn't appeal to me.
Seasonic gets 270 watts out of its 300 watt SFX units. FSP gets 264 from its 300 watt SFX(One I have used for 3 years 24/7 without issues.).
