Antec P280 Performance Case @ Pro-Clockers
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
And with that being said today we will be talking a long hard look at the newest member to the family, the P280. The new P280 retains some of the sleek designs we come to love in the older models but once you really get inside the case you can see the many differences in them. Read on as we get to tour the P280 in its entirety.

Cougar Solution High Performance Midi Tower @ Pro-Clockers
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 11:32A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we will be taking a look at another case from Cougar. The new Solution is not in the same class as the Evolution as it retails for several dollar less than the Evolution. The Solution is a offering that one would look at if they were looking for a more budged-minded case but still has features that would make PC building worthwhile. At the $60 asking price, you will see the Solution has quite a bit to offer."

     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 9:29A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Antec Eleven Hundred is the next PC-Case in the Technic3D Editorship. The Eleven Hundred supports XL-ATX, ATX, Mini-ITX and Micro-ATX motherboards and have place for nine 120mm and one 200mm Cooling-Fans. We will check this and many more in the following Review."

Lian Li “The Hammer” PC-100 PC Tower
     Wed, Mar 21 2012 | 5:43P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
That case would be The Hammer or PC-100. The Hammer has made its rounds around the forums do to one of its unique features. The feature is a win to some and little bit on the strange side for others. That one unique feature is the 180 degree turn of the motherboard. Yes, you hear it right. The rear of the motherboard is now in the front of the case. Today, we will see how this places out for Lian Li.

Corsair Carbide 300R Case Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Wed, Mar 21 2012 | 4:25P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair Carbide 300R Case Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Corsair realise that not everyone needs, or can afford, a high end chassis and for that reason they have been releasing various models over the past couple of years which target price points below the Obsidian 800D. Each has been impressive and the most recent is the Carbide 300R, Corsairs first sub $90/£60 case, which we have on our test bench today."

Corsair Carbide 300R Case Review
     Wed, Mar 21 2012 | 12:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The 300R is the latest mid-tower case within Corsair's Carbide series, which is the entry-level case series from this manufacturer. Despite being the most inexpensive case offered by Corsair, it provides good construction quality, supports up to seven fans, and is clearly targeted to the user on a budget who is looking for a good computer case. Let's see what the Carbide 300R has to offer."

Corsair 300R Review @ Vortez
     Tue, Mar 20 2012 | 4:25P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last year Corsair boldly introduced the Carbide Series - a lineup of computer chassis that delivered finesse to gamer and enthusiast alike. Already in the lineup are 400R and 500R and kicking off 2012 is the new 300R - a compact mid-tower with all the features, style and quality that Corsair fans have come to expect but at a lower cost."

Cooler Master Storm Trooper Computer Case Review @ Bigbruin.com
     Mon, Mar 19 2012 | 4:25P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When I first saw the Cooler Master Storm Trooper computer case I was very impressed by the aesthetics and had high hopes for it. With the system install completed I am very pleased with how things look and fit, and how neat the inside of the case looks, but the process of getting there was just more difficult than I would have expected."

[Worlds First] Raidmax Agusta - Hands on Preview
     Mon, Mar 19 2012 | 9:08A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The black/white final color scheme looks really nice and classy. Although, the black/blue color scheme would also look good, maybe this will appear on version 2.0! The USB3.0 and the fan controller that controls up to 5 fans is also good to see on this case. The cool addition, which we did not expect, was the LED light controller. This is a great addition because some people leave their computers on at night, and the LED?s create a nice, bright, annoying night light. The Agusta can handle our GTX480 with ease, so fitting any graphics card on the market will be simple. The thumbscrews on the PCI slots were a convenient touch as well. With the Agusta being compartmentalized, it brought back memories of the TJ11 we reviewed a little while back, and the Thermaltake Level 10, although not to the full extent of the TT level 10. Compartments are always a good idea in order to help with heat issues and keep everything cooler by controlling important areas better with air flow. The ability to install two 2.5? drives to the inside of the 5.25? drive bay area is a nice touch indeed. This will give you the capacity to have eight 2.5? drives installed or six 3.5? drives and two 2.5? drives at full capacity. Although, you could do whatever type of configuration you would like. The two things we were weary about were the side panel handles and the Gundam front door. The handles seemed a bit too weak for our liking, and we were scared we might snap one off before we finished the review. The Gundam front door seemed like it would be somewhat easy to snap off as well, if it were open and you hit it with your knee or foot and bent it back past the normal range of movement. Hopefully, this will be addressed before mass production. If Raidmax fixes a few minor issues and keeps up the hard work, this case, with an MSRP of $119.99, could really be a contender when it is finally released."

Lian Li PC-100 The Hammer Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Sat, Mar 17 2012 | 11:43A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lian Li has been known for building sleek and sexy cases with simple aesthetics that make them a fit in almost any situation for many years now. Don`t get me wrong, Lian Li has also had some designs for BTX and even designed cases to look like either a Hotel or a seashell, but in the realm of squared off cases, most of what Lian Li sells now is pretty straight forward designs, built from aluminum and deliver a very sleek and sexy finished product to grace your computing space. It just so happens that there is a new face on the design team, so new and intriguing designs are now rolling off the line at Lian Li. Like just about any mid-tower chassis on the market, the design in simple - blow air through the front past the hard drives and into the main compartment of the PC. Once there it mixes with heated air from the coolers and usually is evacuated out of the back. At Lian Li, they thought, well what happens if we reverse the airflow of the case? While they were at it, not only did the airflow get reversed, but so does the interior layout. In this new chassis the installation is setup so that the rear I/O of the motherboard is now in the front of this chassis. I know it really must sound confusing, but as the review progresses, the design and layout is much easier to wrap your mind around."

Cooler Master Elite 431 Plus Mid Tower Case Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Fri, Mar 16 2012 | 4:25P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new Cooler Master Elite 431 PLUS Mid-Tower chassis brings with it the Cooler Master expertise with some of the high-end features that you don`t usually see in the budget field of cases. The Elite 431 PLUS is a steel and plastic design, that comes with a tough yet clean look, and includes a side door window, 7 expansion slots, USB 2.0, USB 3.0, X Dock Station, and some toolless retention. The Cooler Master Elite 431 PLUS has 1 pre-installed front 120mm blue LED front intake fan, and a total of 5 available fan positions for good air flow. The Elite 431 PLUS is very light weight for a steel chassis, coming in at just eleven pounds, and, with its small foot print of just 7.6 W X 16.8 H X 19.6 D, it takes up very little space, yet able to house the larger air coolers, such as the Cooler Master Hyper 212 PLUS at 6.4 inches. The Elite 431 PLUS will also accommodate the longer video cards with 12.4 inches of room. There are a total of three models to choose from in this performance series, starting with the Cooler Master Elite 431 Basic, the Cooler Master Elite 431, and the Cooler Master Elite 431 PLUS.///"

Antec Three Hundred Two Midtower Case Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Mar 16 2012 | 1:30P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Three Hundred Two has received several new updates. The interior has been updated to be similar to what Antec did with the Eleven Hundred. Some of the updates include making the hard drive and 5.25 bays to tool-less, upping the expansion slots from 7 to 8, adding wire routing holes to help improve cable management, front USB3 with internal header connection, and adding mounting points for 2.5 drives. Antec also added some changes to the cooling aspect of the Three Hundred Two..."

BitFenix Raider PC Tower @ Pro-Clockers
     Fri, Mar 16 2012 | 1:30P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we will be taking a look at the Raider. We have once again impressed with all that was offered. The look and shape of the Raider doesn`t really fall in the same category of simple square case like some of the units we have looked at lately. A mixture of subtle line with nice curves adds a sense of flair to the case. But looks are not the only thing we look for in case, so read on and see what else there is about the Raider."
