Cases & PSU/Cases by jmke @ 2010-05-18

Maxcube is new company startup from Taiwan with expanding product line-up, covering PC cases, PSUs, CPU coolers, 80/120mm fans, External HDD enclosures and more. Today we take a look at their flagship enclosure, the Amoris 6010. Branded as a game PC case, it looks are quite unique and could even fit in the office, albeit the flashy blue LED light might be a bit distracting.

Size Comparison & Outside Look

Size comparison

Here's a size comparison of the Amoris 6010 compared to a 1m80 human;

The other boxes are the cases we tested previously here at the site with the same hardware; You can mouse over the rectangles to see which case it represents, click on them will take you to the full review; the case next to the Amoris is the CM690, which is the exact same size when seen from the front.

An important factor if you have a high end VGA card(s) is the depth of the case, as you can assume that a case with more depth will have a higher chance of fitting the current generation of single and dual GPU powerhouses.

The Amoris is sufficiently long, do note that without the front bezel the total length is reduced from 510mm to 450mm. But as you’ll see, the front bezel is worth to keep on!

Look Outside

Maxcube gracefully combines a modern design with classic look and gets away with it. The front doors are made from brushed aluminium give it a touch of class. In the middle there’s a small transparent plastic piece which lights up blue when the PC is turned on. Minimalistic approach and sufficient to give it that special touch.

The top panel reveals the I/O ports, power/reset buttons and HDD activity LED. Maxcube gives you 4xUSB ports, mic/headphone jacks and under the white sticker an eSATA port. Everything a modern day system should have.

The left side panel features a cut-out, but with a black grill it’s definitely less see-through than your average window mod. The black color of the case does mean it’s a fingerprint magnet, be prepared to wipe that front panel if you want to keep it looking spanky clean.

Below a few consecutive shots of the front door opening and revealing the external 3.5” and 5.25” bays which are covered by a black grill:

Moving to the back of the case there’s are two things worthy of note. The first being the two pre-cut holes for water cooling tubes:

The second is that yellow attention stickered switch, which allows you to reset the motherboard BIOS with the flick of your finger. This definitely qualifies as an enthusiast option, Maxcube engineers did a market study for this one!

Last picture of the outside is least exciting, the bottom reveals nothing special, would have been neat to have seen a 120mm fan cutout & dust filter here; but as it stands, there’s just a metal base:
