Anidees AI7 Black Cube Chassis Review

Admin Chassis 1957

Externally the Anidees AI7 is clean and compact with every component centered around the middle of the chassis. It will be easier to move about as it will not be top heavy, if at all.

There is an extra exhaust fan at the rear, just behind the drive caddie. If installed this will give an airflow similar to the CPU heatsink and fan arrangement. 

Conclusion

A general build and what could be described as a mid to high end build, at least from a couple of months ago now we all have the GTX 1080. We are using this build briefly for a review of the HTC Vive and we haven’t had any issues with the components or heat issues. We have the fan controller at its lowest setting, and it manages to push all the air through without issue. The blue fans are certainly a focal point when in use, they dominate the entire front mesh section of the chassis.

Overall the Anidees AI7 is compact without being a small chassis, and is easy to move around and see the rear I/O panel. We found the top panel clip slightly fiddly to use due to its tight fit, but once you know how, it’s easy. There are enough USB connectors in the front for most and the fans installed do not vibrate or make any distracting sounds despite not being high end Noctua or Cooler Master specialist fans. If you want to use an optical drive, you will need to sacrifice one of the top fans or drive bays. These chassis are a different concept from normal towers or the Anidees AI8 for example.

When you build a cube or box chassis like this, you wonder why all chassis are not like this? The main reason is space, or the lack of. The Anidees AI7 manages to be a full ATX component size chassis well and there aren’t many compromises for the average system build. The Anidees AI7 is definitely worth a look if you want something a little different without too much of a compromise on your hardware. We managed to find the Anidees AI7 on Amazon in the UK, but not in the US. Just as the Anidees AI8, you’ll need to go to the NewEgg website for this chassis.
