Xilence Interceptor Pro Review - XSReviews
     Wed, Mar 28 2012 | 3:52P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Xilence is a company that focuses on high-end, silent computer components. Their product portfolio ranges from RAM and HDD-coolers up to high-end cases. You`ll be seeing a bunch of reviews on Xilence products coming your way in the coming weeks, but I thought it would be nice to start you off with a case that can hold tremendous amounts of watercooling, or even a separate mITX-system! This is the Xilence Interceptor Pro. The biggest and `bestest` of the Xilence cases. Big brother of the Interceptor and Black Hornet. Are you ready? A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Posted by: STAFF
"Two years later the set-top box Apple TV is back, and it's new and improved. An overhauled iOS-like interface gives the Apple TV a fresh menu system, but that's available to last-gen Apple TV owners through a software update. Still, the new model supports 1080p video and keeps its under-$100 price."
