Fractal Design Node 202 Enclosure Review
     Mon, Aug 31 2015 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of Fractal Design's highlights at Computex 2015 was for sure the enclosure we are taking a closer look at in this review: the Node 202, a small footprint chassis, combining sleek and the typical Fractal looks. Nevertheless the dimensions, this Node 202 provides the option to install a high end gaming graphics card, thus making it ideal to serve as a HTPC media PC and/or gaming rig, this while blending in perfectly with other multimedia peripherals in your living room. The Node 202 is available in two versions, one with and one without the Fractal Design Integra 450W power supply. Fractal Design was so kind to send us the high end model with the PSU. Time to open the box and explore what this Node 202 can mean for you.

Thermaltake Core X9 Case Review
     Mon, Aug 31 2015 | 12:14P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Core X9 is a behemoth, boasting a bar-fridge-like 122L capacity -- large enough that Thermaltake says dual systems are on the menu, not to mention the possibilities for liquid cooling and file servers. "Super Towers" or "Ultra Towers" such as the Lian Li D8000, Cooler Master Cosmos II and Corsair Obsidian 900D typically cost upwards of $300, so we're eager to see what Thermaltake's Core X9 delivers for almost 40% less.

NZXT Noctis 450 Mid-Tower Case Review
     Sat, Aug 29 2015 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With their Noctis 450, NZXT offers a small refresh of the H440. Despite the completely different shape and design, the interior is very similar to the previous model. Compared to H440 only minor changes have been made. This make perfect sense, since the H440 was already a good case. Nevertheless we're curious to find out more about the different improvements.

Cube Raptor Gaming PC Review
     Sat, Aug 29 2015 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is no secret that there are a lot of people who are interested in gaming PCs but do not have the time or the experience to build their own. It is also no secret that PCs made by gimmicky system builders like Alienware are over-priced and are not good value for money, you are mainly paying for the brand name and reputation and get very little hardware for your money. So what other options do you have? Buying from a system integrator is rapidly becoming a popular alternative, with the constant year-on-year growth in the PC gaming industry it is no wonder that there are more system integrators to choose from than ever before. Today we are taking a look at a gaming system made by the system integrator called Cube. We are checking out their Cube Raptor Gaming PC which offers up a sweet-spot balance of components at a fairly attractive sub-£700 price point. The Raptor boasts the latest Core i5 Haswell Refresh CPU from Intel with the flagship Z97 chipset as well as a 2GB AMD R7 265 overclocked graphics card and 8GB of DDR3. Interestingly, there’s no either/or rubbish going on with the storage – Cube have equipped a hybrid drive so it can bring the benefits of an SSD and large capacity HDD to an attractive price point. All in all this system has an interesting mix of components and is finished off nicely with In Win’s GT1 gaming mid tower case. Check out the full specifications of this system below:

In Win S-Frame Open Air Limited Edition Chassis Review
     Sat, Aug 29 2015 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was only a few weeks ago that I was in Taipei to attend one of the technology industries largest trade shows Computex. While eTeknix were attending the show we were lucky enough to be invited to the In Win factory, where we got to see the many stages of product development and manufacturing, as well as being part of a small group who were the first to see their new D-Frame Mini and S-Frame chassis. While attending the tour we were also awarded the awesome gift of a one of a kind S-Frame of our own, of which only fifteen will ever be produced. The retail edition of the chassis comes in a stunning black and red colour scheme and only 500 of these will be made, each one branded with a special serial number, as too are the 15 models sent to the technology industries review media, such as our selves. The model we were given comes in a blue-tinted colour scheme and I’m sorry to inform you that this colour isn’t available to the public, but the core design and feature set of our model is identical to the retail release, so it shouldn’t have any effect on our review. In Win have come from being just any other manufacturer, to somewhat legendary status in the last few years. Their passion for creating some truly unique and awe-inspiring products has given them a reputation for creating chassis that are borderline works of art. With products such as the H-Frame, D-Frame, Tao and the 904 being prime examples of how In Win are literally thinking outside of the box these days and it looks like the S-Frame is one of their boldest designs yet.

BitFenix Colossus Mini-ITX and Micro-ATX Chassis Review
     Thu, Aug 27 2015 | 12:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
BitFenix is one of the coolest names in the chassis industry. Sure they’ve been making great chassis’ for many years, but a couple of years ago they shot to legendary status with the launch of their ever-popular BitFenix Prodigy Mini-ITX chassis. The Prodigy really sparked new life into the mini-ITX chassis market and since then we’ve seen a wave of impressive new cube style chassis from a wide range of manufacturers. BitFenix have launched several mini-ITX and Micro-ATX chassis based around the original Prodigy design over the last couple of years, as a quick recap, here are our reviews for each of them;

SilverStone Precision PS11B-Q Review
     Thu, Aug 27 2015 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SilverStone supplies its Precision PS11B case in two forms. This Q-suffix version is Quiet while the W has a Window. There are other differences as the Q has a solid front panel with vents at the sides and a fair amount of foam material to deaden sound inside while the W has an open mesh front panel, an LED fan and a housing in the top of the case that can accommodate a fan.

BitFenix Prodigy M Micro-ATX Case
     Wed, Aug 26 2015 | 12:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"BitFenix started a cult-like following with its first original Prodigy Mini ITX computer case when it was first introduced in 2012. The original Prodigy back in 2012 was M-ITX form factor only, but that did not stop custom builders and Modders alike from changing the inside of the spacious case to accept even larger motherboards and custom water loops, the list goes on. After all the case had plenty of room to build in and people took that room and filled it with innovative ideas and parts creating a high demand for the little Cube Cabinet and custom parts to modify it more. BitFenix has now retooled the old case to accept some of the customer’s ideas and expanded to the bigger Micro-ATX form factor and has added 3 more PCI slots for a total of 5 PCI extension slots for SLI and Crossfire. The “Prodigy M” as it is named is a reaction to the amazing success and a few failures of this ground breaking small-cube like computer case."

BitFenix Aegis Case Review
     Wed, Aug 26 2015 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In the simplest terms, an Aegis is a shield of protection to the heart of the warrior that wears this protective armor. This is a very fitting picture of the theme of this case from BitFenix. The BitFenix brand made mini computing a cool and universal way of life for many builder’s taking advantage of the newer smaller and magnificent new M-ITX and Micro ATX computers that have the same relative power of its bigger ATX counterparts with the BitFenix Prodigy Line of machines. In a way they invented the way to put together full custom looped water cooled Monster and stuffed it nicely into a small chassis that not only worked great but looked even better. So many flavors and mods have been commercially developed for that little chassis that could and now the people at BitFenix are at it again with the BitFenix Aegis Micro-ATX computer case."

In Win 707 Full Tower Case Review
     Tue, Aug 25 2015 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Now with the In Win 707 Gaming Black case we now see has a more conventional style and high build quality that is reminiscent of the older days both in construction and constraints that were there before and here now. The $139.00 price tag of the current In Win 707 Black Gaming case would have been $179.00 or more back in 2009 but times have changed and the case makers are doing their level best to keep cost down but sacrificing build quality is not in this one except for the plastic ODD door in the front. The rest is heavy duty steel, great paint, features and flexibility to make a huge server case or a minimalist gamer case. There is room for an extremely fat double CPU Server motherboard or an E-ATX or ATX regular sized motherboard."

Corsair STRAFE Review
     Sun, Aug 23 2015 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The STRAFE series is an interesting move by Corsair as it doesn't look set to replace the previous series, rather compliment it with a slightly cheaper alternative. Some may prefer the sleek look of the brushed aluminium faceplate you can find on the K-- series, but with a stronger emphasis towards 'GAMERS' (such a subjective term), we find per-key back lighting and dynamic effects, completely programmable keys and 100% anti-ghosting.

Cooler Master MasterCase 5 PC Case Review
     Sat, Aug 22 2015 | 12:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master comes with a new case series with a ‘Make it yours’ theme. What it means is that after purchasing its case, you can buy some add-ons for expansion according to your requirements or to get an aesthetic appeal. Cooler Master calls this as a ‘Free Form’ modular system. Cooler Master MasterCase 5 is a base model and like all base models, it should be a good foundation for people to consider as a purchase decision. Only if a case is good enough to be shortlisted for a purchase, it will eventually at some point encourage people to buy after add-on. Cooler Master knows that and, as a result, the company has a good history of making some good cases out of which some of them turned out to be all time favourites. But for the MasterCase concept to work, not only the case should be good as a case, but it should also be good enough for purchasing add-ons should the user require.
