Morex Cubid 2677R Review
Posted on August 17, 2002
Morex Information Ent., Co., Ltd, based in
Taipei, Taiwan have been manufacturing and marketing PC cases
since 1986. The Cubid 2677R "Super Mini Case"
is one of 3 in the Cubid range, the 2677, 2677R (includes
a PCI riser and PCI slot) and the 2688R (additional USB ports
at the front).

The Cubid 2677 measures (WxHxD):
11.50"(295mm) x 2.50"(63.5mm) x 10.75"(273mm).
It weighs approximately 3.3Kg,
including the packaging.
The case is of a solid cold rolled steel construction,
and comes in 2 colours - black and white. You can probably
see that we had the black model.
The top half of the case is removed by unscrewing
3 screws at the back and sliding the top off. This is a great
help during construction, to sort out those minor niggles.
Or perhaps you just like watching the twin fans go round whilst
the PC is on. The fans themselves are curiously mounted a
couple of inches away from the back of the case. We're not
sure why this is - perhaps it is the optimal airflow position.
The sturdy plastic front panel is held to
the front of the case by 2 screws, and contains the Power
and Reset switches, 2 LEDs and a cutout for a Slim type (Laptop
style) CD or DVD drive. This is initially covered, should
you not have such an animal to hand.
Now's probably a good time for you to have
a quick peek at Morex's product page before we install a Mini-ITX
