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."

Fractal Design Define S Window Review
     Wed, Aug 26 2015 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, Fractal Design released the Define S – a stylish mid-tower designed for water cooling enthusiasts. Define S adopts an internal design which breaks away from the norm to supply system builders with a wealth of flexibility.

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."

Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX SE Case Review
     Tue, Aug 25 2015 | 1:14P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Phanteks has decided to add some color to one of their popular series of cases and has branded it as a Special Edition. The Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX SE Case that we will be looking at has all the familiar traits of the a the original Enthoo Evolv ITX, but what makes these special is that you can get them …

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."

Cooler Master MasterCase 5 & Pro 5 Review
     Mon, Aug 24 2015 | 1:12P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At KitGuru we have covered MasterCase 5 from the time it appeared at Computex and again during our recent visit to the Cooler Master European HQ. It has been a long few months and now it is time to get away from words about concepts and instead dish up a review of the finished PC case shortly before it hits the shelves of your local retailer.

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.

Tt eSports Cronos (Bass Boosted) Review
     Sat, Aug 22 2015 | 12:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Rather than actually being a replacement or refresh of the original Cronos, the Bass Boosted edition seems offer better value with its lower price tag than its predecessor. In our earlier review, we found that the Cronos was a fairly well balanced headset. So here we will judge how different the Bass Boosted edition is and whether its worth your hard earned cash.

Zalman Z11 NEO Case Review: Value vs Features
     Sat, Aug 22 2015 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Finding a right case can take a while. This is why we turn to reviews and facts about a product before actually buying anything. Here at Modders Inc we try to help consumers to make a right call when before buying something they might regret. We do a great deal of review on cases as most of our modding is …

Cooler Master MasterCase 5
     Thu, Aug 20 2015 | 3:38P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master spent considerable time and effort on presenting the Mastercase series to journalists and the media at Computex 2015. As the product is at the core of their brand refresh and new alignment, it aims to be the driving factor to regaining some lost ground in this competitive market by offering a fresh new approach to differentiate it from the competition.

Element Gaming Hyperian Micro-ATX Chassis Review
     Thu, Aug 20 2015 | 3:38P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Atomic Gaming is a very new player on the component market, offering a range of peripherals and most importantly, today at least, a range of chassis targeted at the gaming market. Their latest model is the Hyperian Micro-ATX and it comes in that increasingly popular cube-style form factor that acts as a nice step up from the mini-ITX craze that hit the market a couple of years ago. We recently reviewed one of the Element Gaming chassis range a few weeks ago, the Atomic ITX and it was a fantastic little product, so I’m hoping this new product will at least live up to that standard; you can check out the full review of the Atomic ITX here.

Case Mod Friday: Simply Green
     Thu, Aug 20 2015 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have Slider46's “Simply Green” build. Here is what he had to say about it, "I'll be watercooling the GPUs and CPUs and I'm going with a green / black theme for color. Probably looking at some spray can painting for the PSU and maybe some other accents. I think the Gigabyte G1 Sniper should be a perfect foundation for this build - again green and black.""
