CM Storm Scout 2 Case Review
     Thu, Oct 25 2012 | 9:42A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall, I was pretty happy with the CM Storm Scout 2. The temperatures were a bit warm from the lack of more than a single fan, but I don`t want to nitpick the case for this. The price is a steal for its build quality. While most cases at $100 or less just feel cheap, the Storm Scout 2 simply feels like it costs more than its MSRP. The rubberized handle makes it easy to carry the case from room to room or LAN party to LAN party, with more than enough strength to do so. It may feel a bit more rubbery, but there is enough steel there to get the job done. The insides have a nice powder-coated finish and cable routing options, while the back of the motherboard tray leaves plenty of room to cram even the most obnoxious number of cables from view, though it will take some skill to get it just right."

Nanoxia Deep Silence DS1 Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Thu, Oct 25 2012 | 8:17A | Cases | PermaLink

A manufacturer new to the chassis game enters the market today with sophisticated silence. Have a look at the new Deep Silence DS1 mid-tower chassis from Nanoxia."

ROCCAT Kone XTD Review @ Vortez
     Thu, Oct 25 2012 | 4:06A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Kone XTD, on review today, is a mouse grounded firmly in the successful Kone products of yesteryear. It superficially resembles the Kone and (more closely) Kone[+], classic ROCCAT designs in shape and layout, but adds an improved laser sensor and ROCCAT Talk/Talk FX technology to the mix as additional premium features."

Aerocool XPredator X1 Evil Black Edition Case Review
     Wed, Oct 24 2012 | 9:10P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The styling of the case isn`t too bad and it does grow on you as you work with it, but unfortunately cases don`t sell themselves on appearances alone. The top vents being moveable are quite useless as I can`t imagine anyone ever closing them and as designed they`re both flimsy and fairly cheap feeling. The lack of space to hide wiring isn`t unforgiveable but it does make the included grommets somewhat superfluous. The dangerous flub with the fan controller plugs is also unforgivable from a company that has been building custom PC parts for a decade. I was tempted to actually wire it improperly but, even though I do enjoy fire, I didn`t want to risk any of my hardware on a test like that. I would suggest you avoid the possibility of wiring it improperly at all by not buying this case unless you really really like the way it looks. If the price drops dramatically when launched in the US it might be worth considering for a budget build but as it sits I won`t be opening my wallet for one."

Cougar Challenger ATX PC Case Review - A Bold New Arrival
     Wed, Oct 24 2012 | 11:23A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ever since the popularity of PC building boomed, computer cases have enjoyed a certain uniformity. An overpowering number of consumers look for sleek, professional looking cases. This notion has remained in balance in the DIY culture, and remains so today. While it is tough to change that, Cougar hopes to add some extra variety by installing their new and inexpensive Challenger chassis into the market."

Streacom FC5 EVO Case Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Wed, Oct 24 2012 | 11:06A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Streacom is a German company specializing in fanless HTPC (Home Theater PC) cases. Cases from this company are all manufactured with thick aluminum sheets and come with a passive cooling solution for the CPU, using the case as a heatsink for the processor. The FC5 EVO is only 2.4 (60 mm) tall, making it the slimmest case we`ve ever seen. Let`s check it out."

CM Storm Joint Giveaway
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 2:32P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s been slightly over 7 months since the launch of this project and although we`ve already performed 10 giveaways we always want to give back more to all of you who support us. So once again today we teamed up with our friends over at Cooler Master USA to make three awesome prizes from the CM Storm line available for grabs. So just like it says (and shows) on the above image we are giving away a top of the line Sirus 5.1 Surround Gaming Headset and 2 of the latest Gun Metal Scout 2 PC Cases. Impressive right?"

NZXT Phantom 820 @ techPowerUp
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 11:29A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NZXT has evolved the Phantom into the next generation chassis. Bigger, more elaborate, plenty of new features and a higher price tag are some of what sets the Phantom 820 apart from its older brethren. Is this big case a true evolution into something great or a mere mutation with no place to be?"

NZXT Phantom 820 Full Tower Case Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 9:25A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NZXT Phantom 820 full tower case is the next flagship case design to come from their crafted series. The Phantom 820 is larger than the original in width and height but smaller in depth, with a size of 235mm x 650mm x 612mm. NZXT kept the general aesthetics the same but many of the features have been upgraded and improved. NZXT integrated their Hue lighting control system directly into the case allowing you to customize the lighting colors within your case. The Phantom 820 is easily adjusted to fit many different cooling configurations. Customizable cooling coupled with a built in fan speed controller that features four 15W channels and a total of twelve internal leads, means that the new Phantom will support some serious cooling.///"

CM Storm Scout 2 Review @ Vortez
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 8:04A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Scout 2 is a mid-tower gaming case with a new and improved facelift. Gone are the dated looks, sharp edges and uninspiring design - instead we have a sleek visual appearance more in keeping with characteristics and styling found on the latest gaming chassis. There have been quite a few changes made between Scout 1 and Scout 2 so let`s begin our review."

CM Storm Stryker @ Techreaction.net
     Sun, Oct 21 2012 | 11:23A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new release from Cooler Master, the CM Storm Stryker, showed up on our doorstep today. Built to be amongst the most agile full-towers, Stryker includes a strong travel-ready carrying handle. CM Storm Stryker has a stylish glossy black and white paint job on the case. Cooler Master included a big windowed side panel, full dust filter coverage, a fan controller, an external SSD drive hot-swap dock and two uniquely designed modular hard drive cages. These features give CM Storm Stryker the ability to adapt to workstation or water-cooled gaming configurations easily. Now, lets see just how well this case does in our testing and throw it on the review bench "

SilverStone Precision Series PS07 Case Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Sat, Oct 20 2012 | 11:17P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Precision series currently has a size range from mATX to mid tower like the PS06 we review last week. Today, we will be taking a look at the smallest member of the family and that would be the PS07. The mATX form factor is fast becoming a high profile trend. The explosion of high overclocking motherboards and solid state drives which requires much less space has helped to drive the sales of the small cases. And couple this with the ability to use today`s larger high powered graphic cards; you really can`t go wrong with one of the little enclosures and that includes the PS07."

Xigmatek Pure Black Asgard Pro Case Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Fri, Oct 19 2012 | 11:13A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the reasons I am a fan of Xigmatek is because they think outside the box when it comes to their products. One of the first things that come to mind was the integration of the heat-pipe direct transfer technology or H.D.T. And then there was the black coating that was spread over their heat sinks like the Dark Knight. To top it off even with being one of the first to implement anything new they really don`t over-charge for their products. I guess you can say there is a good price-to-performance ratio when it comes to using anything from Xigmatek. Our next product on the table isn`t displaying any new break-thru technology but a lot of class at a great value. The all-blacked out Asgard Pro is a very simplistic case which I think demonstrates style and class that will not empty the old bank account."
