Razer Black Widow Ultimate 2016 Edition Review
     Fri, Feb 05 2016 | 2:24P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Razer Black Widow has become very popular over the years, often being touted as one of the finest gaming keyboards around. Today, we are looking at the brand new 2016 edition, using Razer’s own high specification mechanical switches – could this be the best option for gamers in 2016? Let’s find out.

Lian Li PC-Q10 Case Review
     Fri, Feb 05 2016 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Amidst the endless booths of drones and hover boards at CES, there is a name familiar to most people that have ever thought about building a custom PC; that name was Lian Li. Lian Li had several models of their PC desk and a small gallery of cases lining the rest of their booth. Although with all the cases including …

MSI Nightblade MI2 Review
     Wed, Feb 03 2016 | 2:41P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI has given its ten litre small form factor Nightblade MI a serious upgrade, although you are unlikely to spot the changes as the chassis remains very similar on the outside. If you know what you are looking for you will see that one of the ports below the power button has changed from USB 3.0 to USB 3.1 Type C. Dive in a bit deeper and you will find the 4th Gen Intel CPU in the original Nightblade has been updated to Skylake along with DDR4 memory for Nightblade MI2. The other major change is that you now have a choice of graphics card and can either settle for GTX 960 or push out the boat and upgrade to GTX 970.

Fractal Design Define Nano S review
     Wed, Feb 03 2016 | 2:39P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the new Mini-ITX chassis from Fractal Design, the Define Nano S. It's to be found in the word already, Nano as in small. This chassis is intended to be used for Mini-ITX usage. Yet it can still house many components including a fully fetched graphics card. Not bad for something you place on a 15x15 motherboard, eh?

Cooltek Skall Review
     Mon, Feb 01 2016 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Skall, Cooltek has yet another case in its portfolio. This midi tower is available for well below 100 Euro. Nevertheless it offers good build quality and there are many interesting features and even a lot of flexibility for custom watercooling.

NZXT Manta ITX case
     Wed, Jan 27 2016 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NZXT's Manta case represents a new generation of "super sized" ITX enclosures. It may be a bit large but it incorporates countless features not normally found in the ITX market.

AZZA Nova 8000
     Sun, Jan 24 2016 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”The fit and finish of this case is top notch. All the panels lined up and fit together nicely. The top I/O panel gives you two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports, which is fairly standard on a case this size, and the colorful LEDs break up the monotony you find with many cases that use single-color LEDs. And while I am talking about LEDs, the gentle orange glow from the front fan adds a nice touch. The only thing I didn't like about the I/O panel is how close the reset button is to the power button. I usually prefer to see the reset and power buttons a little further apart to avoid accidental restarts. And finally, one fan filter is all you get and it is for the PSU, which is fine, but it would be nice to see a front filter panel and one for the case floor to help keep dust intrusion to a minimum. But really, these are minor concerns. If you like a case with a little flair, unconventional style, and quick hard drive access, then you should take a look at the Nova 8000.”

Lian Li PC-O8 Review
     Sat, Jan 23 2016 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the PC-O8, Lian Li has a high-end cube case in its portfolio. As with all of their cases this one has also been made from aluminum and to top things off, there are side panels, which have been made from tempered glass. Apart from the aluminum and tempered glass there is also RGB lighting, which is very easy to control and allows for beautiful illumination.

Lian Li PC-Q21 Mini Tower Chassis Review
     Fri, Jan 22 2016 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Now for something a little different, and the pun was intended. We have had the pleasure of a Lian Li chassis before, the PC-V1000 and it was amazing. This was in the day when you still had beige boxes and desktop chassis, where are they now? There has been a significant increase in mITX chassis and Lian Li have designed and released several examples in their usual style, and very much like the Lian Li PC-V1000.

Corsair Carbide 400Q Silent Mid-Tower Case Review
     Wed, Jan 20 2016 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just scant weeks ago we took a look at Corsairs new Carbide 600C full tower case and as a follow-up, Corsair sent us what at first blush appeared to be a mid-tower version of this with arrival of the Carbide 400C/Q. This was promising to be a good case as the 600C turned out to be excellent. Upon closer inspection, it quickly became obvious that this was no scaled down version, but rather a close sibling featuring a number of differences that sets the two model lines apart. Read on to learn more about the Corsair Carbide 400Q!

The Case Mods of CES 2016
     Wed, Jan 20 2016 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"CES is a place where many companies show off their latest products. What better way to show off these products than inside of a badass case mod! This year we saw some pretty awesome builds, case mods, and a few scratch builds at the show. Some of the builds we have actually featured in our Case Mod Friday section so it was cool to see them in person! Enjoy our gallery of the Case Mods of CES 2016!"

Corsair Carbide 400Q Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Tue, Jan 19 2016 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Corsair Carbide series is one of the most established and popular ranges in the entire PC chassis market. There have been many entries in this range, such as the Air 540, Air 240, Spec-01, 100R, 330R, and the recently released 600Q, which was and is the bigger brother of the 400Q we’ll be reviewing today.

Silent Base 600
     Tue, Jan 19 2016 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Bottom line, our personal favorite is the Silent Base 600 Mid-Tower enclosure reviewed earlier this year (especially if you add the second optional 140mm intake fan). The Silent Base 600 offers a near perfect combination of form and function while remaining very quiet to virtually silent. On the other hand if you need the extra HDD/SSD storage capacity and three bundled fans the Silent Base 800 offers, it may be the preferred choice. Both cases are well designed, user friendly and very quiet." Thanks for posting our

Bit Fenix Nova Chassis Review - Your Straight-Forward Chassis
     Mon, Jan 18 2016 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With all the fancy expensive cases out there, we always have to look at the full spectrum of chassis’. Today we will dip into looking at the budget chassis brought to us by Bit Fenix, Nova. Coming in under $100 is quite a feat for a case. In doing so you’re always going to be left wishing there was a little more effort or features put in.

Cooler Master Sentinel III Review
     Wed, Jan 13 2016 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We first had a look at the CM Storm Sentinel way back in 2009, which impressed is with its forward thinking, performance and feature set. The Sentinel III is the latest incarnation where we see the ergonomic palm grip shape return with its adjustable weight system, LED headlights and customisable OLED display with various improvements.

Posted by: STAFF
Phanteks is going to launch their new Eclipse P400 budget case and we have an exclusive in-depth preview. At just $69, this may be the S340 killer we've been waiting for.
