Their new “Mini Center” case is made totally from brushed aluminum and comes in two color options i.e. black and silver. Its minimalistic styling, solid compact size can make it a good addition for any corner or gap in the living room as an HTPC or as an elegant office PC.
The Cubitek Mini Center encloses a modern passive cooling design and intelligently placed ventilation which is further assisted by the heat dispersing aluminum construction. This in result gives silent performance when connected to the TV or sitting on the desk in the office.

It can easily accommodate CPU coolers up to 85mm and standard form factor PSUs.
