Spire PowerCube 715 micro ATX Chassis Review

Interior and Exterior

As you see on the above photo, cables are long enough to hide them and optimize airflow what is important in so small space.

Inside the PowerCube 715 we can install two drives. I assume that most users won’t need more than one and some will probably decide on single M.2 SSD installed directly on the motherboard.

Above is a photo of how much space there is after installing standard components and ITX format motherboard. As you see PSU cables take a lot of space so I recommend to match PSU for your needs and better if you pick modular model so you don’t have to connect all cables and at the same time save space.

There are no optical drive bays but who is using them nowadays ?

Paint looks darker in real and front panel, top and sides are in similar color. I just wanted to point that out as on photos black looks like dark gray.

Front and sides are made of dark plexi. We can’t see much through them but we can clearly see any lighting. It gives quite nice effect. I haven’t seen many other cases with similar design. Most are fully transparent but in this case most of the hardware is covered by PSU. For photos I used large 750W unit so you see that even so large PSU can be installed inside. There are smaller units on the market which will look better in the PowerCube 715.

Final effect is interesting. I think that PowerCube 715 is a good chassis for an inexpensive but still good looking small PC. Small but still big enough to install high performance components so it can be good option also for gamers.
