Senty Optimus Mid-Tower Case Review
     Fri, Jul 22 2011 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So, you're an Incredibly Cheap Bastard and decided that you need a brand-spanking new PC case instead of screwing Ebay sellers for brand-name quality merchandise for a fraction of the cost. Since you're an Incredibly Cheap Bastard, then not just any old inexpensive case will do: you have to have a really cool-looking case without spending any major coin. Well, do I have great news for you! There are now several great PC chassis for around $60 that even Darth Vader would be happy to have in his office. Sentey's Optimus Mid-Tower PC Case may be just what the Cheap Bastard ordered, as it has a very modern futuristic look, has a sleek black finish, and has a bunch of cable-management and tool-less drive mounting features that are found in more expensive cases."

Cubitek XL Tank Computer Case Review
     Fri, Jul 22 2011 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Australia -- what a glorious country. I may be biased in my observations, but no one can deny its epicness: Riding kangaroos to work, having a conservative political party called "Liberals", celebrating Christmas in the summer, and having everything in general upside down are just a few things to mention. As truly nice as Australia is to live in, we are often hard done by hardware and software vendors who delay release of their products compared to the release dates in the United States. Take Apple's range of mobile devices, for example. They have only recently begun to release the iPhone and iPad worldwide on the same date. How about Microsoft? Same deal with Windows retail boxes appearing in stores months after their stateside release. Same again with most Android phones getting released in East Asia or Europe before Australia. But not all is futile. Take Cubitek, for example. Their XL Tank chassis was released in most major worldwide markets at the same time, Australia included. So we were really excited to have the chance of reviewing one of these cases in our Sydney office, for the first APH Review, Australian Edition! However, before moving on to the review itself, I would like to point out an unfortunate incident. You know, as Australia is well known for being the upside-down land and all (Both geographically and culturally), it's only natural that I have encountered some "technical difficulties" with some of my photography. But never fear; said issues were pretty much ironed out after the first photo. Let's move on and see what we found!

Silverstone Raven 3 Performance Case
     Thu, Jul 21 2011 | 12:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When you think of performance computer cases, some things that usually come to mind are high price tags, large physical sizes, and lots of other great features you can only drool over but can rarely afford. Silverstone came out with their performance line, the Raven series, a couple years back and showed that they too can make a great performance case. The original two Raven cases sold for between $180CDN and $230CDN - certainly out of reach of most aspiring PC enthusiasts. Recently, Silverstone has taken some of the most popular features from the more expensive Raven 1 and Raven 2 cases and they've introduced the Raven 3. The Raven 3 sells for only $135CDN, which puts it in line with typical high end mid-towers - certainly not high performance cases like we've seen from the past two Raven cases."

Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS Black Element Review
     Thu, Jul 21 2011 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Remember back in the days as a child when you had best friends? One friend would always say, "You are my best friend... in the world." As time passed on, the relationship between these two individuals may grow closer or further apart; I don't know what your reasons are for such developments, but I can tell you that my passion for computer hardware and miscellaneous electronics has increased dramatically. This is also due to the fact having APH conference calls into the wee hours of the morning has given me a lot more insight into modern technology (Yes, we work very hard at APH Networks to write quality reviews for our readers). As the years go by, some things are not meant to be forgotten, especially items that hold valuable memory. In the world of computer hardware, there are many pieces of hardware where I can truthfully say, in a Jeremy Clarkson voice from Top Gear, "This is the best toy... in the world." What we have here today is a mouse. No, I am not talking about mice that run around and hide in holes in the wall. I am specifically referring to the Tt eSPORTS Black Element. Taking a brief glance at it, I already feel that this mouse is a very classy-looking piece of gaming hardware. However, remembering the old saying, "Don't judge a book by its cover", I was second guessing whether or not the Black Element is truly better than its younger brother, the Tt eSPORTS Black. After weeks of extensive testing, the results are in. Read on to see what I have found!

Cooler Master Storm
     Wed, Jul 20 2011 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Continuing with its tradition of revolutionary designs, Cooler Master Storm has released its new Enforcer chassis. The new chassis contains internal USB 3.0 connections, SSD drive support, and a removable/rotatable HDD cage to support easy installation of the largest video cards. Cooler Master Storm has tried to come up with a design that not only meets the expectations of its customer base and enthusiasts, but also tries to do so within a price range that all will appreciate. We will be thoroughly testing out the new Enforcer and see just how well it lives up to the name and figure out if Cooler Master has another winner on their hands or not.

The HAF 932 Advanced
     Wed, Jul 20 2011 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HAF Series of cases brought about the aesthetics of battle-hardened military vehicles. Each offers the user access to customizing their airflow and rearranging their internal system layout. Together, these features were realized for the first time within the HAF 932, and they will be back again in the new HAF 932 Advanced. The HAF 932 Advanced also comes with an internal USB 3.0 connector as well as tool-free installation. We will be tossing the Cooler Master HAF Advanced on the review table today and see just how well it ranks with the more elite cases on the market today.

The Lian Li Lancool First Knight Series
     Wed, Jul 20 2011 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Lian Li Lancool First Knight Series chassis is designed with the LAN parties in mind. The PC-K63 has an all-steel frame (except for the large plexiglass window) which provides a much tougher (albeit heavier) housing than aluminum, and allows for a more durable chassis while it is being moved around a lot. It is equipped with a powerful cooling system, sporting a pair of 140mm front intake fans, along with a single rear-mounted 120mm and two 140mm fans up top help exhaust unwanted heat. The I/O ports on the top of the case include USB 3.0 (though only one of the two USB jacks here does – make sure to check which port you’re using to get the best performance if you’ve got USB 3.0 peripherals), allowing you make use of the fastest bus speeds from both the top and rear of the case, assuming your motherboard has USB 3.0 capabilities. There are also e-SATA and audio jacks to be had up top as well. The large side window, along with the LED fans and all-black interior, will help make your hardware really stand out so you can show it all off during LAN parties. The front and rear fans are highlighted with blue LEDs, while the fans at the top of the case are unlighted. The Lian Li name is synonymous with quality and greatness when it comes to their products, which are normally made from high quality aluminum. However, to branch out and give people more options at a cheaper price point, they bring in the Lancool name. The cases from Lancool are made from steel and plastic, but are supposedly still considered high quality products, so let’s see if it still holds true with the PC-K63.

Corsair Graphite Series 600T White
     Mon, Jul 18 2011 | 4:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was time for an upgrade, so the designing minions in the dark caves of Corsair's R&D facility started thinking, brainstorming and came up with a fresh idea .. yep the Graphite Series could use an update. So the team came up with a special edition series chassis, the White Graphite Series 600T Mid-Tower Case as reviewed today. This little white colored beast has five exposed 5.25-inch drive bays, immediately hinting this chassis to be a mid-tower chassis.

SilverStone Grandia GD06 Case Review
     Mon, Jul 18 2011 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"HTPCs (Home Theater PCs) are targeted to users that want a computer connected to their home theater system to watch movies and videos, listen to songs, and play games. Since this kind of computer will usually be physically installed together with your home theater equipment, HTPC cases usually have the same size and color of home theater receivers, so your computer will look like standard home theater equipment."

Corsair Graphite Series 600T White Case Review
     Sat, Jul 16 2011 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Last year, Corsair released the Graphite Series 600T, a high-end mid-tower case with several features usually found only on expensive full-tower models, and that got our recommendation. Now, Corsair is releasing the white version of the 600T, which brings a new configuration for the side panel."

BitFenix Survivor Case Review
     Sat, Jul 16 2011 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The BitFenix Survivor is a nice-looking mid-tower case, with a rubber coating on its plastic parts which help avoid fingerprints, dubbed "SofTouch" by the manufacturer. The presence of a retractable handle makes it an interesting choice for gamers who go to LAN parties, but it will definitely please users who want a case with a sleek, professional look. Let's check it out."

NZXT H2 Silent Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Sat, Jul 16 2011 | 12:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Being that silence is golden, it's no wonder that so many people go out of their way to make sure their PC runs as quiet as possible. Pulling that off can be made a lot easier with the right chassis, however, and of them all, NZXT's H2 is one of the best. It features classy aesthetics, a ton of features, and more foam than a busy Starbucks.

Corsair Special Edition White Graphite 600T Chassis
     Fri, Jul 15 2011 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After being left so impressed with Corsair's Obsidian 650D chassis last month, we couldn't wait to take the company's Special Edition White Graphite 600T for a spin to see if it could match or surpass our expectations. Though similar in design to the original, the SE White has a couple of upgrades, and a whole new aesthetic appeal.

SilverStone Raven RV03 Full-Tower Chassis
     Fri, Jul 15 2011 | 12:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the major success SilverStone's Raven series has experienced in the past, the RV03 has a lot to live up to. A full-tower on its side, the Raven 03 orients your motherboard to exhaust heat out the top, and as a result, makes installation an interesting process. Let's take a look and see if this gold-trimmed $130 offering hits its mark.

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.
