[DreamWare Computers] Silverstone TJ08-E mATX Case
     Tue, Dec 20 2011 | 10:04P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to check out the PS07 mATX case from Silverstone. The PS07 was a rather unique case - it was from Silverstone`s entry level `Precision` series, but it was built around a chassis from their high end Temjin series. With a few minor changes, like a cheaper bezel and less powerful cooling system, the PS07 was able to undercut it`s big brother the TJ08-E while still offering a terrific case for the money (thanks to the great chassis design). Now, I have it`s big brother the TJ08-E here to see just what the extra investment will get you!"

Fractal Designs Arc Midi Mid Tower Case Review @MissingRemote
     Tue, Dec 20 2011 | 11:13A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are continuing our reviews of Fractal Design cases today with their Arc Midi mid tower desktop case. We have previously reviewed the Core 3000, Define Mini, Array R2, and Define XL. Like the other Fractal Design cases, the Arc Midi features a sleek, minimalist design, but it stands out as a versatile case that would work equally well for gaming, HTPC, as a media server, or a combination of all three. It can work as an HTPC but with more built in storage than the R2 and Define Mini. It has 2 fewer HDD bays than the XL, but won?t cost near as much (~$50 less) if you are looking for a great server option, and although the Core 3000 is the closest in design and price, the Arc Midi is slightly larger (8 HDD bays as opposed to 6, more fans, etc.) and has a USB 3.0 port that the Core 3000 lacks. *"

This mid-tower chassis offers premium features, inverted internal layout, and advanced styling come with a very attractive price tag of $50.

Cooler Master Elite 371 Computer Case Review @ APH Networks
     Mon, Dec 19 2011 | 6:45P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Taking a close look at a globe, where would you end up on the other side of the world if you dug a tunnel straight down into the earth? Well, if you are situated in North America, you would end up pretty close to Australia. If you followed the traditional North American stereotype, you would end up in China; but this is only true if you started out in South America. So if you were to ever think of digging straight through the earth`s core from our APH Networks office located in Calgary, ending up in Australia would not be a big surprise. As mentioned in the G.SKILL Sniper F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR2 2x4GB reviewed by my colleague Jonathan just recently, everything done in North America is done the right way, whether it be driving on the right side of the road, getting names of our political parties correctly, and the constant of gravity being 9.81 meters per second squared. Why would I be bringing up this topic again? Well, recently, Cooler Master has sent us a very special case for us here at APH Networks to take a closer look at, and it is no other than the Elite 371 with an upside-down logo. Before you frantically scroll down, I must say that in Australia, where everything is done upside-down and backwards, the Elite 371 gives me a slight hunch that it came from Australia indeed. But having reviewed so many products from Cooler Master, we know that their products come from their main office down from the good ol` US of A. So this question now stands: Is Cooler Master trying to fool us with one of their cases from Australia California? Or have they come up with a perfect budget case for their money-wise consumers? Read on to find out!"

Fractal Design Define R3 Mid-Tower Chassis Review @ Techgage
     Sun, Dec 18 2011 | 11:12P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the chassis market dominated by a small group of major companies, it`s easy to get excited when we receive a model from a company that`s not that well known - at least on these shores. In this particular case (no pun, of course), that company is Fractal Design, and its the silence-focused Define R3 mid-tower on deck today."

It?s been a while since we?ve heard anything from Xclio but they?ve just introduced a few new cases and they?ve sent me over two of them for review. Today we?ll start off with the Touch 320 Mid Tower Chassis that features six fans pre-installed; those fans are controlled by a touch panel fan controller located on the front of the case, that?s where the name ?Touch? comes from of course. Let?s just get into it? "

BitFenix Shinobi Window Computer Case Review @ APH Networks
     Sun, Dec 18 2011 | 6:45P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What comes to mind when I mention the word Phoenix? Is it the Phoenix Coyotes from Phoenix, Arizona? Would it be the legendary firebird found in certain mythologies? I don`t know about you, but the first thing that comes to my mind are items such as Phoenix Downs found in the Final Fantasy series. In mythological stories, it has been said that at the end of a Phoenix`s life cycle, it encompasses itself in a blazing fire, and is regenerated from its own ashes in the form of an egg. The Down depicted in the FF series refer to the Phoenix`s tail feathers, in which it is used to revive fallen characters in battle. When it comes down to a company called BitFenix, to my own interpretation, I can see where some of the inspiration is coming from. Being a relatively young company in the world of technology, to my understanding, BitFenix`s main focus is to design hardware that can seamlessly be integrated to the expectations and daily usage of computer products to the end users. So when I first heard of the company, it occurs to me that this company is giving the end user a good sense of revival in terms of using technology with ease, even under extreme conditions. My idea of BitFenix in correlation to the Phoenix firebird is simply the fact that hardware created by this company should be relatively quite simple to use while providing great looks without overwhelming features. To see how it all works out, what we have in store today is the BitFenix Shinobi Window. Combining the reviving power of the Phoenix and the stealth of a Shinobi ninja warrior, I have a strong feeling that BitFenix has created quite a value case that would be quite competitive in the computer market. Keep reading to see what we have found!"

BitFenix Merc Alpha Computer Case Review @ APH Networks
     Sat, Dec 17 2011 | 6:45P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you have ever gone looking for a used car, typically, you don`t go around looking for the cheapest car possible. However, if you are strapped for cash and need something quick and dirty, any car is usually better than no car. Of course, when I mention all these things, I mean absolutely no disrespect to the BitFenix Merc Alpha we have here at APH Networks for our review today. Sure, it isn`t your high-end enthusiast chassis, nor is it your mainstream case. In fact, it is what many would classify as a hardcore value case. When I first read the name Merc Alpha, I really just want to call it the cheapest Mercedes-Benz in existence (You know, with the name Merc and everything). It is hard not to think of it that way, as the Merc Alpha is going for only $39 at press time. Of course, an assumption would be that you are being offered nothing more than the absolute minimal number of features. On the other hand, assumptions could be wrong, and many would try to debate that fact -- this case could be completely different than what you have been expecting. BitFenix does create a wide array of different types of chassis, so I hope they do know what features are the most important even on a lower priced model. The real question here is whether this chassis is truly a Mercedes-Benz under the covers, or is really just a Hyundai cheap car in disguise? Read on to find out more about this super saver deal!"

Rosewill Blackhawk-Ultra HPTX Computer Case @ Benchmark Reviews
     Fri, Dec 16 2011 | 1:09P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Desktop comptuters are seen by some pundits as a dying breed, and perhaps they are. Laptop and even tablet computers are now capable of fulfilling most people`s needs, and even those who want or need a desktop machine could probably be satisfied with a micro-ATX motherboard in a small form factor case. Then there are those for whom even a full tower case is not enough: they need to accomodate a dozen hard drives, or an elaborate water cooling system, or perhaps an HPTX motherboard. For those select few, Rosewill offers the Blackhawk Ultra computer case, the largest case Benchmark Reviews has ever tested."
