Arozzi Arena Gaming Desk @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Jan 21 2017 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It’s funny how we spend sometimes thousands of dollars on our PCs and peripherals but at the end of the day don’t give much thought to our actual desk setups. I bet a lot of you are using the same desk that you used years ago, I know I did. But a few years ago I started thinking about options for new desks and frankly there really aren’t that many out there. Sure you can pick up the cheap desks at your local discount store, but is there anything out there that’s better. Are there any options focused on gamers? Well if you search around you will find a few options that are “gamer” focused, but none were very good. So when I saw the Arozzi Arena Gaming Desk online it caught my eye. They didn’t just add colors and call it a gaming product, it actually has a cloth mouse surface over the entire top of the desk. With all of the people buying large desk pads and putting them under their keyboard and mouse, the Arena seemed like an extension of that so I reached out to Arozzi to take a closer look.

Caselabs Bullet BH7 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Jan 21 2017 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past four years, I have been running my main rig in the Magnum TH10 monster of a case. In that time I have abused the case almost every day and it has held up to that abuse without a ding, dent, or chip in the finish. So when I saw that Caselabs had introduced a new case and it was available in a bright orange I couldn’t get in touch with Caselabs fast enough. The new Bullet line of cases are much smaller and incorporate a lot of new features from what Caselabs have learned in the last few years including a dual chamber design. Given that I’ve never actually built an orange themed build and I’ve always wanted to, I set out to build a monster PC in the Bullet BH7. You can expect a project build in the future, but for now, I did want to sit down and dive into the Caselabs Bullet BH7 and tell everyone what it's all about and if they should pick one up for their next build.

be quiet! Pure Base 600 Chassis review
     Fri, Jan 20 2017 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Germans have gone budget. be quiet! has launched its new Pure Base 600 case as an entry-level model that sits below the Silent Base and Dark Base cases we saw in 2016 and 2017. As you will see in our video, our initial impressions were a bit … glum. There are no windows and certainly no tempered glass, so basically you get a black box that looks a bit plasticky. Pull off the two side panels and the interior is an open design without a power supply cover where it appears that everything is on show and there are few features of interest. You can see the optical drive bay housing and the three separate hard drive bays but perhaps the most exciting thing is the inclusion of two Pure Wings 2 fans, 140mm at front and 120mm at the rear. At this stage in the game KitGuru was ready to throw in the towel and award the Pure Base 600 a ‘Dull but Nice’ award and move on to the next review.

Cooler Master MasterBox 5t Case Review
     Tue, Jan 10 2017 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On the face of it, the new MasterBox 5t case from Cooler Master looks interesting because it is superficially similar to the much more expensive MasterCase Maker 5t with its nifty black and red colour scheme. The idea, clearly, is that enthusiasts who are in the market for a proper PC case can get a certain amount of style and sophistication without breaking the bank.

OCC's Top 3 Cases of 2016
     Fri, Jan 06 2017 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”Number one. The top dog. The big enchilada. That is what the Silent Base 600 from be quiet! is. So what pushed this case to the top? Well, first let me say that be quiet! is fairly new to the case category, so I was a little skeptical at first. Coolers, fans, and power supplies - be quiet! has those all figured out. Some of the best you can buy. But cases? How well can the expertise in coolers, fans, and power supplies transfer over to cases? Turns out the answer is amazingly well. From a quality perspective, I was most impressed by the fit and finish of the case. Top notch all the way. And the focus of the design is to be quiet - and that is what this case is all about. The dual-layer side window is something I have never seen before. It really keeps the sound down, along with the extra sound-deadening material in the front and side panels. And they go a step further and decouple the hard drives, fans, power supply, and motherboard tray to reduce the chance of vibrations and sounds from making it out of the case. Throw in the side vent that allows the addition of a fan to move air behind the motherboard, and you have a winner. The accent trim is also available in several different colors.”

A shorter mobile cable (1.2m) with a 4pole jack and an in-line microphone, and a longer cable (2.35m) featuring separate headphone/microphone jacks and a boom microphone. Despite its lightweight stature and its sleek all black finish, ROCCAT have equipped the Cross with 'studio grade' 50mm neodymium drivers that promise to deliver superior audio quality in all media.

PowerColor Devil Box Redux
     Sat, Dec 31 2016 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”My initial reactions to how the Devil Box improved gaming performance have not changed much after the change in baseline hardware. I found that even with a device such as Intel's high performance NUC as the backbone of your system, you still can really game at almost full speed just by using a device like PowerColor's Devil Box to fill your gaming needs. My results shown above are at 2560 x 1440 as a proof of concept that if you have the monitor real estate, you can indeed game at up to 1440p resolutions with the two cards tested. That being said, the sweet spot for resolutions will ultimately be limited by your choice of the video card that will populate the confines of the Devil Box. The only challenge I saw while testing was that the green card had a hiccup in a couple games and did not perform as expected. Driver changes usually fix small things like this in specific games. Smaller form factor PCs are becoming more common place each and every day. As integrated graphics solutions still struggle to deliver gaming performance, there is a solution: PowerColor's Devil Box!”
