The Gamer’s Mini
Cubitek has brought us several lines of tough, sleek cases. Their Tank series is designed specifically with gamers in mind, focusing on function over flashy design. The Mini Tank is their first mini-ATX case designed specifically for gamers, providing great airflow and room for large expansion cards and CPU coolers. It’s a rugged aluminum case that will be easy to transport to private LANs or other gaming events, without sacrificing cooling or components. I got to try out the Mini Tank for myself, and I found it had a few surprises in store for me.
