Morex Cubid 2677R Review

The Hard Drive and PSU

The hard drive cage slides out once the retaining screw is removed.

The Hard Drive is easily screwed into place in the cage.

The CD drive cage comes out just as easily. Underneath is the 160mm x 45mm DC-DC converter which is the secret of the small size of this case. Instead of a standard PSU, the 2677 takes a 12V DC input from a seperate external AC adapter. The DC-DC converter provides 54.95W of power. The Mini-ITX specification only requires 47W (max) or 60W (peak) and in practice this is more than adequate to run a Hard Drive, Motherboard and DVD/CDR all at once.

The adapter (provided) can accept 100/240V AC. It is made by ILAN electronics and not Morex themselves, unless Morex own ILAN. Another advantage of having a fanless seperate power adapter is the reduced volume - this sound from this case is much like that from a video recorder whilst it is in standby mode. We like that.
