Corsair Carbide 300R Case Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 11:22A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
*Regardless of their dominance within the case market, one area where Corsair hadn?t ventured into has been the entry level sub-$90 category. But that?s all about to change with the introduction of the new Carbide 300R. It boasts a good list of features and a relatively neutral design but will this be enough to overcome some fierce competition? * *"

SilverStone GD06 Home Theater PC Case
     Sun, Apr 08 2012 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Computing on Demand has posted a new article, 'Review: SilverStone GD06 Home Theater PC Case' There is no doubt that the HTPC enthusiast has some options when looking for a chassis to fill the void in their entertainment center. It seems like so many of the options are either too small, too big, to ugly, or too expensive. With that in mind, SilverStone has stepped up their game. SilverStone is no slouch when it comes to manufacturing high quality computer components and with the introduction of the GD06, the company is trying to shake up the HTPC chassis market a bit.

Aerocool Strike X GT Black Gaming Tower
     Sat, Apr 07 2012 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The first item we will be taking a long hard look at today will be the Strike X GT Black gaming case. The GT stand for gaming tower as you can imagine but how does it stand up to the other gaming towers on the market? Well, we have reviewed several other companies’ towers and we will find out. Looking at Strike X GT, you can see just where the “X” is within the theme and that is everywhere. We are going to break out the box and take a quick of this new case from Aerocool.

NEXUS Prominent R Midi Tower Review
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 9:28P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's been far too long since i last reviewed a PC Case and since there has been quite a large number of new ones released in the market lately (many of which are already here) i think it's time i got back on track. Now as some of you know I’ve always liked full sized towers more than midi ones since installing lots of hardware in tight spaces is not really my thing, not to mention about other things such as airflow levels. However lately i have actually seen quite a few feature rich midi towers which i would actually consider using for my own test rigs (and i have if you are following our FB page) instead of full sized ones and the Prominent R by NEXUS which we have here today is such a midi tower PC Case.

Thermaltake Overseer RX-I Midi Tower Review
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 9:27P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yesterday i uploaded a review surrounding the latest PC Case manufactured by NEXUS, one of the latest players in the market, called the Prominent R which may not have the most radical design in the market but it does carry a large number of features making it a very good overall solution in the midi tower segment of the market. However since the design of the case may not appeal to everyone out there today i decided to take things a bit further (more like at the opposite side) and bring you a review about one of the latest midi tower offerings by Thermaltake called the Overseer RX-I (VN700M1W2N) which also happens to have a large number of features but this time over the design part of the unit has nothing simple about it (you can tell for yourself just by looking at the intro image).

NZXT's Phantom 410 white system enclosure
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 9:23P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The original Phantom was a very eye-catching case with truly unique looks and also some funky color options and the Phantom 410 is supposed to be a very close relative to the original case. Now lets find what the fuzz is all about! "

Corsair Vengeance M60
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the last few years Corsair has been rapidly expanding their reach into the enthusiast PC market from their roots as a simple memory manufacturer, getting into everything from cases and cooling to power supplies and speakers. Now, Corsair is flexing its retail muscles once again to go after the bread and butter of industry heavyweights Logitech and Razer, attacking them head-on with a new line of Vengeance gaming peripherals. I've already taken a look at Corsair's Vengeance 1500 headset and particularly enjoyed it, but how will their mice and keyboards stack up as first-generation products with fledgling drivers? To find out, I took an in-depth look at the Vengeance M60 and M90 mouse, two wildly different mice that cater to the FPS and MMO crowds with various differences and yet many similarities. Grab a soda and get comfortable; this review is rather long.

In Win BUC 101 Mid Tower Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 8:08A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we?ll be looking at one of In Win?s latest cases, the BUC 101. An upgrade from the original BUC, the BUC 101 comes equipped with two USB 3.0 ports, three 120mm fans, and an external SATA port.

Posted by: STAFF

SilverStone Precision PS07 Micro-ATX Case Review @ OCIA.net
     Tue, Apr 03 2012 | 8:39P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The Silverstone Precision PS07 micro-ATX chassis offers a more traditional layout than the Fortress series, although access to the interior is via the right side of the case, a-la BTX style format. The chassis features dual hidden 120mm silent fan intakes, along with an independent airflow channel for the power supply, all with easily removable filters. With a wide stance to accommodate extra room for cabling, the PS07 maintains a small footprint while allowing use of a full-size power supply and video card, not to mention up to six hard drives. It`s available in two color choices, black or white.?"

Cougar Evolution Chassis Review
     Mon, Apr 02 2012 | 3:58P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall performance was about average. Idle temps were consistently a smidge higher than the other comparison cases and the chipset was noticeably warmer at idle as well. I`m not really sure what contributed to these higher temperatures, as the case body isn`t much different than the others. Either way, it didn`t perform significantly well or poor; it was on par with other cases in its category, which is a positive. At this point now, it`s a matter of a degree or two and the comparison of appearance with competing cases."

BitFenix Shinobi XL Review @ Vortez
     Mon, Apr 02 2012 | 3:38P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Shinobi XL is a larger version of the original; with room for XL-ATX even more device storage and water-cooling capabilities. BitFenix have also upped the connectivity ports on the front to include 4x USB 3.0 ports and a new SuperCharge port providing up to 2.5A for getting power to mobiles devices and such. Shinobi XL has certainly built lots of anticipation so let`s waste no further time and begin our analysis."

Antec P280 ATX Mid Tower Computer Case @ Benchmark Reviews
     Mon, Apr 02 2012 | 11:09A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For many enthusiasts want a quiet system, with room to spare, and a beautiful exterior the Antec P280 is exactly what they are looking for. The Antec P280 is a Super Mid Tower designed as an addition to venerable Performance One series. This refresh comes with a redesigned interior, exterior, and an updated port selection. These updates came without Antec disrupting the Performance One series goal of Quiet Computing, using materials with different acoustic qualities to help minimize the amount of sound leakage. Benchmark Reviews will evaluate if the noise characteristics and build quality of the Antec P280 are worthy of the Performance One moniker that it has been given."

BitFenix Raider Case
     Sun, Apr 01 2012 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In conclusion, the Raider was heck of a case. It looks nice and works well enough. It actually comes with three of BitFenix’s Spectre fans, which are more fans than most cases ever ship with. The price of the case seems unaffected by the addition, which makes it an even bigger bonus. The overall appearance is rather simple and has a modern classy look to it. I know some of you, especially fans of the Colossus, would much rather have some flashiness to it, but this is a nice change from your typical “gaming” case."
