Phanteks Evolv X – Best ATX case of 2018 (so far!)
     Sun, Sep 16 2018 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Phanteks has cruelly kept us waiting three months since we first saw the Evolv X at Computex 2018 and now the time has arrived for a review. It is fair to say the Evolv X was one of the stars of Computex and was certainly one of the most anticipated products that mainstream gamers might actually buy (32-core Threadripper and 28-core Intel got more attention but that’s a different story).

Cooler Master MasterAir MA410M Review
     Wed, Aug 29 2018 | 4:21P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
RGB lighting has been popular with custom PC builds for quite some time now, but with newer innovations in technology comes newly updated products. Following the boom in RGB lighting comes Addressable RGB lighting. Not only do addressable RGB LEDs require a specific three-pinheader on your motherboard to make use of finer software control, but as a controller is applied to each individual LED there is a far greater variance of colours, modes and effects available to the ARGB devices. Cooler Master has decided to embrace this with the new MasterAir MA410M, a dual fan air cooler, that supports addressable RGB LEDs on both the fans and cooler shroud itself. With a host of features including a built-in CPU temperature sensor and Air Guide Armour for £59.99, how does it stack up against both AIO liquid coolers and air coolers at this relatively saturated price point?

Cooler Master Introduces the MasterBox MB530P
     Sun, Aug 26 2018 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

Cooler Master, a global leader in manufacturing computer hardware and peripherals, today launched the MasterBox MB530P, a case which offers an affordable price point without compromising appearance.

The MB530P comes equipped with three tempered glass panels on the front and both sides of the case for a clear view of components and cable management. A honeycomb pattern decorates the bottom of the rear side panel offering users a stylish solution to cover the open side of the power supply and hide any unsightly cables.

The MasterBox MB530P features three addressable RGB (ARGB) 120mm fans on the front and an ARGB power button, which can be synced by connecting the ARGB cable on the front I/O to the included 2 to 3 splitter. Users can control lighting functionality via motherboard software or by cycling through the pre-set lighting modes attached to the reset button. The MasterBox MB530P is certified compatible with ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI and ASRock motherboards.

Ventilation cutouts line the side of the front panel to allow for air intake while a magnetic dust filter blankets the top of the case to keep components clean and maintain thermal efficency. Two friction SSD mounts can be found behind the motherboard for a seamless installation without the use of tools. Users can simply attach the SSD to the case by inserting the included rubber pegs into the SSD and sliding it into place. For additional storage space, two HDD/SSD trays can be found beneath the PSU shroud.

The MB530P joins the previously launched MasterBox MB510L (carbon), MB511 (mesh) and MB520 (DarkMirror). The MasterBox series satisfies consumer’s needs for a variety of style choices. Defined by the aggressive intakes that unite the line, the MB530P will provide users with the addition of a more premium build at an affordable price. The MasterBox MB530P will be available August 9, 2018 for pre-sale on Newegg.com for a starting MSRP of $109.99.


Cooler Master MasterBox TD500 Review
     Thu, Aug 23 2018 | 5:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was at Computex 2018 that we saw the first images of the distinctive MasterBox TD500 and gaining some attention it certainly did. In a market which is shy of unique models, the three-dimensional diamond cut-design found on the TD500 is definitely turns heads. This mid-tower not only offers good hardware support, an edge to edge side panel and radiator support, but it also arrives with four cooling fans – three of which are RGB LED ready!
