The MountainMods U2-UFO Aluminum Cube Computer Case is a fantastic product which combines great aesthetics and complete functionality not found on rival cases. The 2mm brushed aluminum accented with chrome components is both stylish and pleasing to the eye. The triple window design is very unique and will certainly please consumers and novice modders who don't have the necessary tools or skill to modify their own cases. The front and rear portions of the case have been well designed to accommodate any type of computer configuration with the emphasis of tool-free design. Stock cooling options are excellent if not excessive with the right amount of fans mixed together in strategic positions for proper air circulation. Add in great functionality in terms of tool-less design, spacious interior, removable drive cages and motherboard tray and you have one of the best custom fabricated consumer based cases that I have seen to date. I should note that this case is very expensive with all the bells and whistles added but at the same time this is a unique custom case that is designed to your specifications and not the other way round.
After examining the U2-UFO Aluminum Cube Computer Case for the past week, I really couldn't find any striking issues with the product. The only points that I could make were personal preferences which I would like to see added to future designs and revisions of this case. Although the "U" shaped top panel provides easy access to the case interior removing 14 thumbscrews is a bit tedious and I would prefer to see panels used as an alternative. The fan configuration is extreme but unless you are heavily overclocking every aspect of your system components, you might not necessarily need so fan mounts to keep your system cool. It'd be nice if three of the 120mm fan mounts from the front were removed and an additional external 5.25" drive bay was added instead. Finally, front port extensions are common stock items that have been added to most professionally manufactured cases. It would be nice to see USB, Firewire and Audio ports added to the front bezel as a stock option to bring this accessibility closer for the consumer instead of reaching behind the case. Overall, I was very impressed with the U2-UFO Aluminum Cube Computer Case and award MTB's Seal of Approval with a final rating of 9 out of 10.
