SilverStone TJ08-E Micro-ATX Tower Enclosure Review
     Fri, Feb 24 2012 | 4:25P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are in the market for a Micro-ATX tower enclosure, the SilverStone TJ08-E case deserves to be up at the top of your list. The TJ08-E provides excellent cooling and it packs a lot of storage capacity into a small tower chassis. The overall build quality is very good and the beautiful black anodized front panel is just what we would expect from SilverStone. Easily removable side panels, top, motherboard tray, and HDD cage are icing on the cake. The TJ08-E proved to be a pleasure to work with and earned this editor`s choice award!"

     Fri, Feb 24 2012 | 4:25P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Rosewill has had a renaissance of sorts in the case market. Trying to provide the right mix of features at the right price is always going to be a challenge - it`s a moving target. Lately though, Rosewill has been getting it right and some of their recent offerings have been very well received by enthusiasts. The Ranger-M Chassis seeks to earn its place among its peers and, at least on paper, it seems to have a shot.

Azza Fusion 3000 Full Tower Chassis Review @ OCIA.net
     Thu, Feb 23 2012 | 1:21P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The PC case market is one that is hard to stand out in but of course that doesn`t stop manufacturers from trying. We have only reviewed one other Azza case before, the Solano 1000 way back in 2009, but we generally came away impressed with it. In reading up on their history, I discovered that at one time Azza offered mainboards in addition to their PSU line. They aren?t in the mainboard market anymore but have a variety of chassis and PSU offerings such as the Fusion 3000 that we will be taking a look at here today.?"

The XFrame offers extreme amount of freedom and space between cable routing areas and innovates device installation procedures. The XFrame is a very interesting piece of kit...

Cooler Master Cosmos II Ultra Tower Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Feb 23 2012 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Cooler Master released the Cosmos case a few years ago it was truly something new and revolutionary. They followed it up with the Cosmos S, which gave it a more streamlined look and took away the front door. Our own staff member Colin Dean still uses that case to this day. Back in 2011 at CES we saw a prototype of the new Cosmos that Cooler Master was going to release later in the year. We were excited, but we had no clue when it was going to be released. Right before CES this year Cooler Master announced the Cosmos II. A massive case with support for up to 13 hard drives, 5 included fans with support for up to 10 fans, 2 hot swap hard drive bays, and it can fit motherboards up to XL-ATX. Read on as we check this beast out!"

Cooler Master Elite 431 Plus Computer Case Review @ APH
     Mon, Feb 20 2012 | 5:34P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As a reviewer of PC components, I would like to first start this introduction off with a bit of insight. PC components tend to fall into three different categories: Budget components, performance components, and I-have-too-much-money-to-spend components. You follow? Let me rephrase. Budget components are produced by manufacturers with the goal of providing the best performance-per-dollar. Performance components are released into the market comparably around the same price, but geared towards providing pure performance, innovation, and refinement. Last, but definitely not the least, is the I-have-too-much-money-to-spend kind of products. These products are those targeted at consumers that really have no budget in mind, but are just looking for the best of the best with simply have too much money to spend; hence the name I gave it. Today, however, I seem to be in a bit of a dilemma. Cooler Master has given us a fresh chassis, the Elite 431 Plus, and it seems to be a hybrid of a budget and a performance case. Looking at the price of around $50 at the time of review, it is definitely priced as a budget case. But on paper, this baby screams performance. LED intake fan? Hot swap HDD X-dock eSATA bay? Internal USB 3.0? Black painted interior? The perfect acrylic windowed side panel (No joke!)? The feature list on this case continues to amaze me. But there must be a catch, right? Well, I guess you`ll have to read on to find out."

Xigmatek Midgard II Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Sat, Feb 18 2012 | 4:13P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I remember looking at the original Midgard from Xigmatek and I even refreshed my memory by looking at the old review from 2010. As I remember, the original offered something like five ODD bays, five HDD bays with metal trays, seven expansion slots and a pair of orange bladed fans to go along with the tool-less mechanisms used in that chassis. One other thing I remember was that the original did have most of the front and the entire top covered with mesh for easy breathe-ability for both air in through the front. Via convection it allowed hot air to escape right through the top passively or you could add fans to help things along. All in all, for the time of its release, the Midgard had an oddly placed front I/O panel, but other than that it was a nice chassis for its day. As time progresses, older designs are left in the dust in favor of cases with USB 3.0, room to manage wires behind the motherboard tray and even handy hot-swap SATA hard drive docks built into cases are a huge hit. Well, Xigmatek saw the writing on the wall and took what was a good selling product for them and figured it was time to update the chassis to today`s customers` expectations. With a fresh set of eyes, the new release got both an exterior and an interior redo. There are some subtle hints to the original case, but honestly it looks a lot like the mid towers we seen from BitFenix. Either way, the new chassis is a definite improvement over the original concept."

Thermaltake Overseer RX-I Chassis Review
     Sat, Feb 18 2012 | 1:54P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The only thing that bothered me that I`m struggling to get past is the annoyance of the screws on the HDD mounts. I just don`t understand why Thermaltake would take a step back and require screws on HDDs again. I would rather deal with hard-to-bend plastic mounts than to have a screw-in configuration. This annoyance doesn`t completely cancel out the great features it does have though. The blue is something I like, but I know not everyone wants this color so I respect my readers by saying blue doesn`t win it all. Overall, it`s a pretty solid case, and I can see myself using it for my secondary build for some time to come. It`s smaller than the HAF 932, which is nice even after all my love for that 932."

Thermaltake Overseer RX-I Full Tower PC Case @ TestFreaks
     Sat, Feb 18 2012 | 1:54P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I like cases with lots of room in them, I used to like small cases but I?ve since changed my mind on them as I like the room to move and route wires to keep them out of the way. Today for review I?ve got the Thermaltake Overseer RX-I PC case which is a full tower style that offers plenty of room for everything. Once you open up the Overseer case you?ll find more than enough room for everything in your system including large video cards and large coolers. The case offers excellent cooling abilities with two 200mm fans pre-installed for you, and a 120mm fan as well. The Overseer even comes with an integrated SATA hard drive dock so you can easily swap drives for transferring files of even booting from another drive. All in all I like the Overseer case a lot, it has features that I think many will appreciate in a case. "

Raidmax Viper Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Fri, Feb 17 2012 | 11:45A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hop in my way-back machine with me as it has been almost two years since I reviewed the Skyline from Raidmax and this is likely why Raidmax didn`t auto-associate for me at first. Judging from what I just went back and seen with the Skyline, there are lots of things that Raidmax could have updated, upgraded and brought up to speed with today`s case offerings. Just from what I can see on the packaging, most of the issues with the older chassis have been reworked and the latest submission has been updated and this chassis comes with a very unique front bezel design and an interior color combination that threw me off my game for a few minutes. I don`t want to give that surprise away just yet, but I will say that the latest mid-tower submission from Raidmax offers a fair amount of features, including native USB 3.0! Looking nothing like the last chassis I reviewed, this submission gets its name from either a car or a snake and since I don`t see headlights, I`m putting my money on a snake. The front sort of reminds me of the expanded neck area of a snake ready to strike. The only issue with this theory is I don`t see any eyes either, so your guess is as good as mine, I guess. The rest of the chassis has a somewhat dated layout, but it seems to work for this chassis."
