Actually, they're a very new company with unhappy designers from Lian Li.

Kind of like what happened with Thermalright-Prolimatech.

I never liked that reviewer and I think that if he can do a decent job with cable management, the case itself shouldn't be half bad at all.

Price/availability would be nice to know! But if the build quality is these could be srs competition to the big brand names!

You have many information here, including prices.
Cubitek

For those who don't want to read:
"The Mini-Tank, retail for AUD$149.00
The XL-Tank, retail for AUD$329.00
The HPTX-Tank, retail for AUD$399.00
The Magic Cube 8 HDD, retail for AUD$299.00"

AUD$ almost equals CAN$

Personally, they seems very promising, but I'm going to wait before I thing to buy one of these.

And some video-review of theses case, for the first and the second, use the subtitles.

I don't like how restrictive the front fan grills are, but otherwise I think they look fantastic.
