A square is semi-magic if all of the rows and columns add up to the same total.  So, for example, the square

 

 

 

 

is semi-magic, since every row and column adds up to 25.  The following semi-magic square is interesting because eight of the nine entries are perfect cubes:

 

 

 

 

The problem is to find a 3 by 3 semi-magic square all of whose entries are distinct positive integer cubes, or prove that such a square cannot exist.
