Let's face it, graphics cards these days are getting longer and longer. With current AMD and NVIDIA offerings, some users will need to consider a new case or get creative in order to install their new card. It's always prudent in a new build to consider a case that supports both current and future graphics cards, as well as any other hardware you may need. That's where Cubitek comes in with the XL-Tank case. Not only does the it support larger graphics cards, but longer PSU's up to 220mm in length and CPU heatsinks up to 190mm in height as well. Of course the XL-Tank has much more to offer than just these few features, but you'll have to read on if your keen on finding out.
As one might expect, the front of the XL-Tank box features a picture of a tank. However, unlike a tank this case is all aluminum. Here on the left side of the box details we have multi-language specifications on the case. The back uncovers many other handy features, such as the removable hard drive bay. The right side of the box details some specific features of the case, like the previously mentioned larger graphics card, PSU, and CPU heatsink support.
Once open, we are greeted by the top panel of the XL-Tank. The whole case is packaged in with the usual plastic wrapping and Styrofoam.
So far the XL-Tank is shaping up to be a great case, however this is only just the tip of the ice berg. Let's continue on with a closer look at the case.
