BitFenix Prodigy ITX Gaming Case @ Pro-Clockers
     Sun, Sep 23 2012 | 10:30A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ever since I moment I heard about the BitFenix Prodigy I have been hearing about great it is. From reviews to build logs praise BitFenix`s newest case to market. It is possibly getting more talk than any other case on the market right now. And the weird thing about it is that it is not a standard tower case but a ITX tower case. But one that can support the ideal gaming rig. Something that many other cases of this size can boast about. Well, now I have one up close and personal I will generate my own take on the much talked about case."

     Sun, Sep 23 2012 | 10:30A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As more and more features are subsumed onto the motherboard, and graphics cards grow ever more powerful, many enthusiasts are realizing that they can do without the size and space requirements of an ATX form factor system. Micro-ATX and mini-ITX systems are becoming more popular, with new motherboards and cases breaking out of the HTPC market that they`ve defined for so long and nudging into the enthusiast market. Benchmark Reviews looks at Cooler Master`s Elite 120 Advanced case and builds a gaming system in it to see how it fares."

Cooler Master CM Storm Stryker review
     Wed, Sep 19 2012 | 3:57P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the new Cooler Master CM Storm Stryker full tower chassis. and if you think it looks familiar, well it`s because it is. The product we`ll review today is the CM Storm Stryker chassis aimed at you guys, the gamers. The product however has for 98% the DNA of the CM Storm Trooper, hence why you probably recognize it. Aside from the subtle hints towards Star Wars (Stryker/Trooper), there are distinct differences though. The new Stryker has a predominantly white look with black inserts, we see a side window, and the side panels have been shaped differently as well. Inside again everything is white with black touches.

Bitfenix Prodigy: a unique mini-ITX chassis
     Sat, Sep 15 2012 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Prodigy is the first mini-ITX chassis Bitfenix has released, and right-away it's an attempt to offer something different than what's already out there. Bitfenix tried a different approach to the mini-ITX form factor, something we can only applaud in an otherwise conservative market. We also like the many different possibilities you get with the Prodigy, we can think of many different applications. The Bitfenix Prodigy has excellent build quality, lots of upgrade possibilities, many configuration options and a very reasonable price.

     Sat, Sep 15 2012 | 12:11P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have seen the low-end and we`ve seen the best that GameTiger has to offer. It`s time now to look at the Mars VA-2, their mid-range solution in mid-towers."

REVIEW: CoolerMaster Storm Ceres 400 @ PureOverclock
     Sat, Sep 15 2012 | 11:44A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a quick overview of the Cooler Master CM Storm Ceres-400, we see it is meant to deliver high-quality sound, in a rugged yet comfortable and light weight frame. Built for gamers on the go, the Ceres-400 is also meant to deliver this great ultra mobile sound at an affordable price. The High Quality 40mm drivers should bring out every detail in the game so you can react quickly and hear where the action is. It includes specially designed sound-absorbing cushions that sit comfortably on your ears and help block out distractions. The Ceres-400 is designed to let you enjoy the comfort, quality and competitive edge of a top-notch stereo gaming headset wherever you go. Let`s see if it can live up to these expectations."

CM Storm Stryker Case Review
     Sat, Sep 15 2012 | 10:28A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the end, this case is essentially the same as the CM Storm Trooper - the only difference is really the fact that is white. The eSATA port has also been removed from the front I/O panel of the case, but this isn`t a deal breaker, as I can`t say that I`ve used one in a long time, if ever. The price is up there with some of the higher models, but at $159.99 it isn`t too much for what you really get. It is a slight premium to the cost of the Trooper at the moment, but in my opinion it looks more like the true Imperial side that I expected in the first release."

     Sat, Sep 15 2012 | 9:23A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Prodigy, BitFenix has a compact, mini ITX compatible case in their portfolio, which is perfectly suitable to build a small but yet powerful system. Furhtermore this nice looking little case should also offer plenty of space in the interior."

     Fri, Sep 14 2012 | 8:06P | Cases | PermaLink

Fractal Design Define R4 Mid Tower Review
     Fri, Sep 14 2012 | 12:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With fractal Claiming that the Define R4 can support two separate radiators the case certainly has a lot to live up to considering the amount of media Fractal have distributed about the R4. A window option has also entered the arena being released slightly before going to press with this review."

REVIEW: Cooler Master Storm Stryker @ PureOverclock
     Fri, Sep 14 2012 | 9:28A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have the opportunity today to take a look at the new Cooler Master CM Storm Stryker Chassis to see how close it comes to that Holy Grail of balancing looks and usefulness. We must say, the unique touches, in both form and functionality, that Cooler Master has added into the Stryker really caught our attention. Cooler Master really put a great deal of thought into this case. From the sturdy carry handle at the top, to the external SSD hot-swap dock, the case attempts to offer a multitude of features. It even has the ability to be used as a workstation that is air cooled, or you can configure it to be a hardcore gaming rig that is completely water cooled."
