Fractal Design Node 304 Mini-ITX Case
     Tue, Dec 31 2013 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Design Node 304 is an evolution of Fractal's earlier Mini ITX NAS Case geared primarily for server duty. How well does it manage the noise and vibration of six 3.5" drives? Can this modest 20 litre case keep the system cool enough?

In Win 904 Tower
     Tue, Dec 31 2013 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“In Win has just released their brand new 904 case. This full aluminum tower features tempered glass sides and a solid frame. This allows for stability by design while giving your PC that high-tech, industrial look that’s popular. It also comes with a hidden ODD bay and four USB 3.0 ports. It only supports two internal fans and limited radiator sizes, but perhaps that’s to be expected to create this work of art. The split design in the back assists in managing your cables at the rear going to your I/O board, completing the package.”

BitFenix Phenom Mini-ITX Case
     Tue, Dec 31 2013 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The BitFenix Phenom is a big, elegant cube style mini-ITX case, offering a little bit of everything. Does it fulfill its promise for just $80?

Fractal Design ARC Mini R2 Case Review
     Tue, Dec 31 2013 | 8:59A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Next, there is included support for larger video cards and CPU coolers, making it a very welcome addition to this small chassis. Lastly is the water cooling support, which to me it is a dud because you lose either one or both bays when installing anything other than a 240mm radiator on top. The reason why I kept it in the Pros was because it`s very uncommon to support a custom liquid cooling setup in the realm of small chassis, but Fractal Design added it anyways, even if it might be less than practical. It does not hurt the chassis in any way by including it, so it is a warm welcome in my eyes."

Fractal Design Arc Mini R2 Review
     Mon, Dec 30 2013 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The second revision of the Arc Mini micro ATX chassis brings a few revisions while keeping the essential styling that differentiates Fractal Design from other PC case manufacturers. The original Arc Mini PC case was well received by PC enthusiasts and system builders alike, and now Benchmark Reviews has the Arc Mini R2 for testing and we will detail what sets it apart from the crowd."

iStarUSA S35 Mini-ITX NAS Tower
     Mon, Dec 30 2013 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Stop confusing yourself with all the NAS box options out there, and build your own NAS with the S-35 from iStarUSA, or maybe don't - your choice."

Corsair Obsidian 750D @ techPowerUp
     Sat, Dec 28 2013 | 1:32P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Obsidian 750D aims to fill the compact full-tower chassis spot in the updated Obsidian family. With the 900D taking the top and the 350D firmly situated in the mid-tower segment, the 750D has a price tag to match its size, but will it be able to deliver everything to warrant the Obsidian name?"

Cougar MX500 Mid Tower
     Fri, Dec 27 2013 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Various price points exist for different ranges of computer case products, though lately several manufacturers have taken to the notion that the ratio of paying less for getting less is too heavily skewed in favor of paying less for getting nowhere near enough for your money. Cougar figures it’s their turn to toss another chip into the stack of affordably-priced gamer cases with the introduction of the MX500 mid tower case. Said to be a sleek, modern designed gaming tower, does this offer gamers the features they crave without breaking the bank? Let’s dig in and find out.”

Cooler Master HAF Stacker 935 Chassis Review @ OCIA.net
     Thu, Dec 26 2013 | 4:37P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?Not since Shawn reviewed the Mountain Mods U2-UFO Duality have I seen a case specifically designed to house two individual computer systems. There are several reasons a hardcore computer enthusiast may have for needing room above and beyond what even your typical full tower case provides, but not many options are available without building your own... until now. Earlier this fall, Cooler Master revealed plans for a customizable, modular case system combining the cooling capabilities of the High Air-Flow series with the discontinued Stacker name, the HAF Stacker.?"

Cougar MX500 Mid-Tower Case Review @HiTech Legion
     Thu, Dec 26 2013 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cougar`s MX500 is a Mid-Tower case with a sleek and modern style that`s aimed at gamers. The MX500 measures in at 8.3 inches wide, by 18.7 inches tall and 18.9 inches deep. It will hold seven HDDs and a 300mm video card, or you can adjust the top HDD cage to fit three SSDs and a 330mm long video card, or ditch it all together for a massive 410mm of GPU clearance. The motherboard tray has a cutout for after-market CPU coolers and rounded cutouts to pass through cables behind the tray."

In Win 904 Mid-Tower Case Review @HiTech Legion
     Thu, Dec 26 2013 | 8:59A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 904 from In Win is a case that looks amazing and is designed to perform also. The 904 is pretty unique with a solid aluminum (T4.0/2.0mm) main shell and two thick panes of tempered safety glass for either side. It comes with hot swappable drive bays that already have some cable management built into the case. There is 3 x 3.5 drive bays (the swappable ones) and two other places for 2.5 drives. The positioning is unique in that the 3.5 bays are in the top right corner and turned vertically. The 2.5 drives are mounted on the inside front of the case. The single optical drive is in an odd position, tucked away underneath the PSU, kind of in the middle bottom of the case. The 904 is built for AiO water cooling, which is designed to mount externally on the back of the case. /"

Fractal Design Define XL R2 Computer Case
     Wed, Dec 25 2013 | 10:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Time and again we have pointed out the difficulty consumers may have when trying to choose the ideal Midi tower to house their new system especially if they happen to enter a store with countless models around. However the same issue doesnt` really apply with Full towers since nowadays most hardware manufacturers focus their efforts in reducing the size of components and so it goes without saying that PC case manufacturers also follow the same path. Now as you all know we are not much into small PC cases since the entire process of adding and removing hardware requires as much space as possible (others for example choose open rigs/test benches) thus we are always on the lookout to get our hands on every Full tower model we can. Fractal Design has been around for quite some time with sole aim to cater the needs of even the most demanding consumers out there in search for high quality PC cases offering noise insulation right from the box."

Posted by: STAFF
Today we are taking a look at a miditower case from Antec which is a sample from their performance series. The P100 seems to be a very nice case with a clean look and most of the needed features these days. Having said this, lets get on with the review!"

Corsair GS800 Review @ ocaholic
     Wed, Dec 25 2013 | 9:39A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we have a chance to look at a member of Corsair`s PSU Gaming series, the Corsair GS800. Designed as the ideal price-performance solution for building or upgrading a gaming PC, according to Corsair, the GS800 is based on a single +12V rail design, providing up to 65A of reliable, continuous power for multi-core, multi-GPU gaming PCs and packs quite a few nice features including tri-color 140mm LED fan. Bear with us as we check out if the GS800 really has what it takes to carry the Gaming Series tag."
