Be Quiet! Silent Base 800 Midi Tower Review
     Sat, Jul 04 2015 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Finding an affordable and strange/unique looking PC tower with plenty of features is not really hard nowadays mainly because there are many manufacturers out there that focus mostly on these three aspects whenever they get to release a new model. The hard part is finding a high quality PC tower with great looks plenty of features and almost noiseless operation whether that's when playing your favorite games or watching your favorite movies. Some manufacturers have introduced such PC towers in the past (most noticeably Antec and Nanoxia) but the small number of such models has left much room in the market for similar solutions by other manufacturers. Be Quiet! has been behind some of the top performing power supply units and CPU coolers to date so it wasn't really a surprise to see them enter the PC case market by releasing their very own Silent Base 800 midi tower.

Inside this burly case high-end components can easily be hosted due to the large expanse which paves the way for extensive water-cooling support, big CPU coolers and great cable management.

Fractal Design Node 804 Micro-ATX Chassis Review
     Sun, Jun 21 2015 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cube chassis’ have been booming in popularity in recent years. Not only because they make stylish HTPC style cases for your living room, given that they look similar to your common subwoofer, but they also make great cases for the LAN gaming market. I’m sure many of you love using full tower chassis’ for the space they provide. However, there has been a shift to creating compact cases that can still pack some serious hardware and the new Fractal Design Node 804 promises to do just that. The Node 804 isn’t exactly tiny, but it looks like Fractal Design is trying to balance a relatively compact design, without making any compromises on the kind of hardware you can install. It features a dual compartment design that allows for your motherboard, graphics cards, water cooling and more to be up front. While extra storage, your power supply, cable management and more are tucked out of sight in the back compartment.

Core 1100 from Fractal Design
     Sun, Jun 21 2015 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Fractal Design Core 1100 Micro-ATX case is a basic, no-frills enclosure. While it might not excite comment it is a good value when it can be found for $40 or so considering the overall quality of the case and the included silent 120mm fan. It offers no real cable routing, but then again the case is not offered with a side window so proper airflow can be achieved by simply bundling cables out of the way."

BitFenix Prodigy M Blue Review
     Sat, Jun 20 2015 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Prodigy BitFenix have created a really neat looking case, where there initially only was a mini ITX version.

Therefore the interior had to be rearranged and we're curious to find out how well a job BitFenix have done.

IN WIN D-Frame Mini ITX Computer Enclosure Review
     Fri, Jun 19 2015 | 4:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"IN WIN Development has been far more than just a name the last couple years. We’ve seen some impressive computer enclosure designs catering to the eclectic gamers including the GT1 or Mana, conservative professionals who appreciate the 900 Series and extreme enthusiasts showing off their systems in the amazingly creative Open Frame series which includes the S-Frame, D-Frame and now the D-Frame Mini, which we had a special sneak peek at back in May of 2014, during COMPUTEX. We have in the lab, and so far, there doesn’t seem to be a more portable, impressive low maintenance enthusiast’ computer enclosure."

Case Mod Friday: Project CLUNK
     Wed, Jun 17 2015 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have E.E.L. Ambiense's “Project CLUNK” build. Here is what he had to say about it, "My initial idea was to build something kind of post-apocalyptic or something and it quickly moved to putting it loosely in the Mad Max arena, hence the name. It's just a name borrowed from a character from Mad Max, but nothing to do with the character. It just clicked in place and fit the idea perfectly.""

Thermaltake Core V1 mITX Case Review
     Wed, Jun 17 2015 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The versatility of the mITX platform continues its popularity with gamers and builders of all kinds. This is partly due to the availability of a functional chassis to create these stellar systems. Thermaltake has offered a few mITX cases in the past but with some new design directions, they are at it again with the Core V1. The Core and Urban series chassis are a large shift from the style and overall designs found in TT’s past series. With smooth, sleek , functional and simplistic designs, the Urban and Core series has captured many awards and praise. That simplistic but functional idea is carrying over to the mITX platform and may be what makes the Core v1 special.”
