     Mon, Aug 13 2012 | 2:05P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With its bold white on black color scheme the Snow Edition is packed with features leading Thermaltake to proclaim "The Legend is Back". I can definitely agree the styling choices are bold but case designs are a truly personal choice.

NZXT Hue RGB LED Controller Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sat, Aug 11 2012 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Computer case lighting started with people taking lights made for cars and putting them in cases. From there we got our own cold cathode lights made for computers and it just went on from there. Back in 2010 we took a look at NZXTs sleeved LED kit, which was a great way to light the inside of your case. NZXT is back with another lighting solution called the Hue. It combines a LED strip with a 5.25-inch bay device that you can use to control the LEDs. The Hue is set to be one of the most customizable and easy to use lighting systems for your PC! Read on as we check it out!"

Rosewill R5 Mid Tower Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Aug 10 2012 | 11:50A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When building a new system I think one of the hardest things to decide on is your case. It is something you are going to have to look at every day and something you may want to show off at a LAN party. With that said many people do not have the money for a flashy over-the-top computer case. Many people would rather have a functional case than one that looks cool. The Rosewill R5 Mid Tower Case comes in at about $70 and features 3 included fans, fan controller, USB 3.0 support and removable air filters. Is the case for your next build? Read on and find out!"

AZZA Genesis 9000W Review
     Fri, Aug 10 2012 | 12:15A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This case, to put it simply, rocks at cooling. There is a downside though - the stock fans are pretty loud. So while the AZZA Genesis 9000 does put up a good fight to the other cases (the exception being chipset temperatures) it`s being compared to it is also easily the loudest of the bunch. That`s not to say it`s going to make your ears bleed like the Vantec Tornados of yesteryear but it`s definitely not a silent case. Switching the fan mode to low speed (which also turns off the LED lighting) transforms the case into a quiet beast but temperatures are affected by this enough to take away most of its commanding lead on GPU and CPU temperatures. All in all a good showing by the Genesis 9000!"

Silverstone EC03B-P FP37 EC04 - USB 3.0 Accessories @ Techreaction.net
     Thu, Aug 09 2012 | 3:39P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The power and capabilities of a desktop computer system have expanded rapidly over the time. Following Moores law a CPU doubles in performance every two years. GPUs or graphics cards have also followed suite in this expansion of power. Memory speed has been almost as linear; modern DDR3 (2400 MHz effective) is up to 24 times faster than SDRAM first accepted nearly 20 years ago (PC100). Storage has been one of the most underdeveloped technologies for desktop users, as increased speed often led to increased heat and noise, anathema to a modern desktop system. Solid State Drives have broken new speed barriers and forced storage manufacturers to increase the speed of the SATA interface twice in the last 6 years. Starting in 2006 when SATA 3Gbps interface hit the desktop market, and again in 2010 when the first 3rd party 6 Gbps controllers started appearing. Already that barrier is being pushed to the limits. Further more external storage solutions are becoming faster and faster as Solid State technology continues to increase and design faster NAND in smaller packages. The Universal Serial BUS, is one such method for connecting external devices. The latest version is USB 3.0 which was first released in 2008, 12 years after the original USB port started appearing in desktop systems. By utilizing the same physical port and basic power and data lines any USB device will theoretically work in any USB port although speed will operate at the format of the lowest speed. (USB 3.0 drive in USB 2.0 port operates at USB 2.0 speed, USB 2.0 drive in USB 3.0 port operates at USB 2.0 speed). There is a VERY small performance advantage to using a USB 2.0 device in a USB 3.0 port. A top speed USB 2.0 flash drive scored better in USB 3.0 ports when testing the ADATA USB 3.0 flash drives almost 2 years ago.)"

MSI Barricade Mid Tower PC Case Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Aug 09 2012 | 10:38A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Typically when we think about the computer manufacturer Micro Star International (MSI) we think of their top quality video cards, motherboards, and their laptops. We rarely think that MSI also provides us computer users with chassis`. Even I have to admit that when I hear the name MSI the first thing that comes to mind are their motherboards, and the last thing that I honestly think about the name MSI are chassis`. Well over here at Legit Reviews, we just so happen to be looking at a chassis for MSI, the Barricade."

Corsair Obsidian 550D Case Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Tue, Aug 07 2012 | 9:43A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With excellent build quality, enthusiast-focused features and plenty of expansion options, Corsair`s new 550D chassis personifies everything the Obsidian series is known for.  But beneath its plain exterior lies one major departure from other products in the Obsidian lineup:  this case is designed to provide the quietest possible computing experience. "

Xigmatek Gigas mATX SFF Cube Case @ Pro-Clockers
     Mon, Aug 06 2012 | 9:15A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nope, it`s the Gigas the smallest case that Xigmatek currently makes. Am I disappointed? Heck No. if you take a look at the Gigas at their website you will see that it is one of the best looking small form factor cases out there. And the feature list is as long as any of the cases boasting the same compact size. So, how could be disappointed with taking the Gigas as the first case sample from Xigmatek.

Corsair Vengeance C70 Case Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Mon, Aug 06 2012 | 9:05A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new Vengeance C70 case moves away from Corsair`s typical understated chassis design and supplants it with a militaristic look that may only appeal to a select few. However, with a great looking feature list, plenty of interior space and a relatively inexpensive price, some may be willing to overlook the rudimentary exterior."

AZZA Genesis 9000 Full Size ATX Case
     Fri, Aug 03 2012 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We take a look today at a no-holds-barred full size ATX case from AZZA - the Genesis 9000. With a $169 pricetag, it ain't cheap. And it's not small - not by a long shot. We put it to the test to see how well it cools our components and how it stacks up to the competition."

CM Storm Stryker Full Tower Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, Aug 02 2012 | 3:57P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The CM Storm Stryker is a full tower computer case targeted at the gaming audience. The finish on the CM Storm Stryker is white and black, it is stunning and of high quality. Cooler Master designed the Stryker with quality in mind as well as portability. The case has a convenient rubber coated carrying handle on the top and is made of steel. It includes a large side window for viewing the internal components and plenty of cooling. The stock cooling features a 200mm fan on top, 140mm in the rear, and (2) 120mm fans attached to the hard drive bays. The hard drive bays are removable and rotatable so the drives can be set up to face either side of the case, as well as the rear. The case has been designed to house the largest graphics cards as well as large CPU heatsinks. Along with these features is the ability to organize the cables neatly using the cable routing holes and tie downs on the motherboard tray.///"
