NZXT Switch 810 Full-Tower Computer Case @ Benchmark Reviews
     Fri, Feb 17 2012 | 9:29A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What is it that you should look for in a computer case, exactly? The market is full of many different styles with plenty of different features and the prices range from next-to-nothing to arm-and-a-leg. When deciding on a computer case, those are the three areas you want to focus on; price, functionality, and style. Computer case manufacturers are constantly trying to find a balance between those three items by giving customers everything they want at a price they can afford and in a style that they`ll like. NZXT is a company that tries hard to please gamers and enthusiasts and their products reflect that. At CES 2012, NZXT announced a completely new case design that offers a lot of functionality for its price. In this article, Benchmark Reviews is exploring the NZXT Switch 810 Full Tower Computer Chassis to help you find out where it fits for you within those three categories."

Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 PC Case @ Pro-Clockers
     Thu, Feb 16 2012 | 4:13P | Cases | PermaLink

It`s tall, full featured and quite different than any other case found on the shelf at your local retailer."

AZZA Fusion 3000 Review
     Thu, Feb 16 2012 | 4:11P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The problem for AZZA and the Fusion 3000 is two fold from my perspective. First, it is trying to be everything to everybody and second, it places itself right in the middle of the most fiercely competitive price range for enthusiast cases. As a result, there is a lot of innovation and value being offered just on either side of the $180 mark. For example, the Fusion 3000 faces competition with the Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced, which is $20.00 less, includes three 200mm+ fans, and has nearly all the same amenities. Also at the same price point or even slightly less, it competes with entire Silverstone Raven series. Both of these include fans beyond the standard front intake or rear exhaust and are constructed with better fit and finish than the Fusion 3000. Because of this, the lack of included fans is a bit puzzling."

NZXT Phantom 410 Mid-Tower Case Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Wed, Feb 15 2012 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Phantom 410 is a Mid-tower version of the popular full-tower NZXT Phantom case. The NZXT Phantom 410 mid-tower case brings new features and improves upon the original full-tower design. An acrylic viewing window adorns the Phantom 410`s left side panel, giving enthusiasts a chance to show off their hardware. The NZXT Phantom 410`s top 140mm exhaust fan is outfitted with LED lights to accentuate the interior components further. Despite having a smaller size, the NZXT Phantom 410 mid-tower case makes intelligent use of component mounting options, providing plenty of room for large graphics cards, multiple HDDs and even a 240 or 280mm water-cooling radiator on top. Like the original NZXT Phantom full-tower case, the NZXT Phantom 410 is available in multiple color options, including an upcoming black version with an orange or white trim.///"

BitFenix Raider Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Wed, Feb 15 2012 | 3:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Along with a long list of features in the middle of their mission statement, they end with something along the lines of delivering a chassis with top notch performance and quality with unstoppable value. So, it seems we are in for a very feature rich mid-tower with a smoking hot price; at least that is my guess right now. Today we are going to be looking at sleek and simple styling with a SofTouch front and top in the new Raider mid-tower chassis. Well, to be honest, not exactly new to those over the pond, but it is new to the US market. The sub-$100 solution, in both my eyes as well as those of BitFenix, does offer plenty of up to date must haves. On top of that, they have made one of the most ingenious fixes. If I were to give you two native USB 3.0 ports, most users would be in trouble at this point. Instead of adapters, they wired a USB 2.0 connector right into the back of the 3.0 connector just to make life that much simpler! There is plenty more to see in the BitFenix Raider, so tag along as I rattle off the specifications and lay down the price, so we can get to the sleek looking chassis images."

A Futurelooks News Flash - NZXT Crafted Series Phantom 410 Mid-Tower Computer Case Review
     Wed, Feb 15 2012 | 9:24A | Cases | PermaLink

a post to your own news section would totally be appreciated. If we`re sending our news to the wrong place, we apologize. Just send us a message with the correct address to the address below. Don`t forget that,Futurelooks checks out the little brother of NZXT`s original Phantom chassis ... * * *NZXT Crafted Series Phantom 410 Mid-Tower Computer Case Review* * * One question I often hear is what brand and model motherboard would I recommend for someone looking to spend the least amount of money to upgrade. The answer always comes down to the user?s particular purpose and peripherals needed to fill that purpose. A basic assumption users make is that they have to buy a model motherboard somewhere in the middle just short of the flagship to get the most out of the processor or peripherals. But that?s not always the case. For example, this entry level micro-ATX motherboard from GIGABYTE called the H61M-UD2-B3 offers the same advanced Sandy Bridge performance features as premium boards, but costs well under $100. Let?s see what it can do! *"

REVIEW: NZXT Tempest 210 @ PureOverclock
     Fri, Feb 10 2012 | 4:13P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In keeping with their budget-oriented heritage, NZXT has the Tempest 210 mid-tower chassis, a more lightweight version of what we saw in the Tempest 410 Elite. Looking to maintain some similar aesthetics and functionality, the Tempest 210 is a more affordable alternative. In truth, the Tempest 210 is looking to grab the budget-minded gaming audience. It looks full of potential on paper with plenty of useful features, but how does it work on the bench? Let`s find out."

A Futurelooks News Flash - Silverstone Raven 3 (RV03) Full Tower Computer Chassis & Strider Gold 850 Watt Power Supply Combo Review
     Fri, Feb 10 2012 | 3:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
a post to your own news section would totally be appreciated. If we`re sending our news to the wrong place, we apologize. Just send us a message with the correct address to the address below. Don`t forget that,Futurelooks has a 2 for 1 review deal featuring products from Silverstone ... * * *Silverstone Raven 3 (RV03) Full Tower Computer Chassis & Strider Gold 850 Watt Power Supply Combo Review* * * What separates a true Silverstone premium case from any other? It?s mainly the creative orientation and placement of system components to yield the best thermal performance. Instead of the common mounting methods, Silverstone engineers use something called a 90-degree method for their high end cases. This means the PCI slots (or back) of the system face out the top. The science behind it is valid since heat naturally rises. This allows them to use quieter low-rpm fans. In our review we found the Fortress 2 (FT02) to be a very quiet case. Today, we?re having a look at another premium case from Silverstone called the Raven 3 (RV03) and we?ve got one of their Strider 850W 80Plus Gold power supplies riding shotgun. *"

NZXT Switch 810 Full Tower Chassis - BCCHardware
     Thu, Feb 09 2012 | 6:30P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall, the NZXT Switch 810 is a very nice case to own. It is a very user friendly case with lots of options that allow you to customize and tweak your layout to your hearts content. It can be built as a great air cooled system, and can be quickly swapped out to support a large liquid cooling system and large graphics cards. It`s your choice. . ."

REVIEW: Enermax Fulmo @ PureOverclock
     Thu, Feb 09 2012 | 3:20P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Enermax is probably not best known for their case designs; rather, they`re very renowned for their power supplies, but they have produced several cases, and we`ve seen them to be typically rather garish creations. We`re not fans of the outlandish, but the Fulmo mid-tower case is a distinct trend to the opposite; it`s quite tasteful, and we`re rather fond of the new restrained styling shown by Enermax."

Sapphire VID-2X Review
     Thu, Feb 09 2012 | 3:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With many in the industry projecting a sharp decline of desktop PC sales over the next few years, an external portable solution for laptop and netbook users on the go may find it a product that will handily fit into their carrying case and very useful for sales presentations, or to just make their tasks easier with increased screen estate. The idea of reduced toggling between multiple open programs and applications is also very appealing as well. As an avid user of a multiscreen desktop setup, I can attest to how much more easy and enjoyable the access is in day to day computing, project management, and content creation software settings.This product would also seem to hit its stride in board rooms and businesses."

NZXT Switch 810 White Case Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Feb 09 2012 | 1:21P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We were very impressed with several of the innovative features that NZXT put on the Switch 810, especially the consideration for pretty extreme water cooling setup with that 85mm of top clearance. The ability to drop a 420mm rad in the top and another 280mm rad in the bottom should be enough cooling for even a quad GPU setup. Placing easy to access filters on the intake fans is a real plus and should keep the dust bunnies to a minimum..."

NZXT Switch 810 Full Tower PC Case Review
     Thu, Feb 09 2012 | 10:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Switch 810 pretty much exceeded every one of my expections when it comes to full-tower PC cases. Each feature and improvement to the Switch 810 addressed key issues that many PC builders face when they are putting together new systems. This case`s hybrid features were also put to the test as I installed a Corsair H100 with dual radiators, but the Switch 810 didn`t have any problems supporting this self-contained liquid cooling unit. I even had plenty of room to add two more fans above the radiator. If I have any criticism at all of this case, I would have liked to have another removable filter between the top vent and radiator because the vent holes are very large and big dust particles will easily access the case here."

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
