BitFenix Merc Alpha Mid Tower Chassis Review
     Mon, Nov 28 2011 | 9:48A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As far as being no frills and full of experiences, that holds true to the chassis as well. Don`t let the no frills label I use scare you. Even in human form, you need to check waistbands and boots to be sure that you don`t run into any surprises. The chassis we are about to look at also appears to be simple to give you that feeling of comfort as it sits on the table and stalks the competition, but behind its back, or under the door panels, there is plenty in store to aid you in an epic kill/death ratio, collecting dog tags, or in the quest for a golden gun! BitFenix has in fact developed their own Mercenary to do our bidding. In fact, they even made two versions. What we are about to see today is the BitFenix Merc Alpha. Along with its partner chassis, the Merc Beta, there is only the top chassis ventilation that separates the two, so it will take a discerning eye to tell them apart, much like telling Bender apart from Flexo."

Fractal Design Arc Midi Case Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Mon, Nov 28 2011 | 9:19A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fractal Design is a Swedish manufacturer, and their products are easy to find in the US. The Arc Midi is a mid-tower case that comes with eight 3.5/2.5 bays, three 140 mm fans, and an analog fan controller. Let`s see if it is a good product."

Thermaltake Armor A30 MicroATX Computer Case Review @ Bigbruin.com
     Mon, Nov 28 2011 | 9:08A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are looking for a small form factor case to take to LAN parties or just to save space, the Thermaltake Armor A30 is a great option. It has the features that are needed in an enthusiast level case, including a USB 3.0 port, SSD support, room for multiple hard drives, a removable motherboard tray, and even support for long video cards."

Antec Performance One Series P280 Super Mid Tower Chassis Review
     Sat, Nov 26 2011 | 11:19A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As I sit here contemplating to start this based off of a revision of a previous design angle, or if I take the approach of allowing this chassis to stand on its own merits, I find that both angles are very applicable to what we are going to be having a look at. As the title mentions, essentially we are at what the evolution of what the P180 has become some years later. The external design has definitely been revisited in this new release, but there have been a multitude of changes made internally. Looking at cases that came later in the Performance One series from Antec, the P183 and P193 and their revisions, they were all based off a compartmentalized interior design. So while Antec tried to make it have aesthetic cues that hark back to the classic design that many of you reading this have used, there has been much thought and effort into maximizing what you can get into this chassis, making it easy to do, and deliver limited noise in operation."

Cubitek Tattoo Pro Review at Overclockers Online
     Sat, Nov 26 2011 | 10:18A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A good case that stands out from the rest is not easy to find. The Tattoo Pro promises to be a case that you want to buy at the price you?d be willing to pay. In my mind, that spells value without compromising the fundamentals of a good case design. Let?s see how the Tattoo Pro holds up."

Sentey GS-6500B Burton Full Tower Case Review @ Bigbruin.com
     Sat, Nov 26 2011 | 9:08A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is a lot to love about the Sentey GS-6500B Burton Extreme Division full tower case. First off, the build quality is fabulous. The fit and finish are of the same quality, if not slightly better than some of the high-end cases we`ve seen. The chassis is roomy and plenty of the user friendly features are just what we`d expect to see from a premier brand."

SilverStone Raven RV03 @ PureOverclock
     Sat, Nov 26 2011 | 4:50A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?One of SilverStone`s newer chassis is the Raven 3 which is derived from the original Raven case. The Raven 3 is smaller in stature compared to the original but still packs an aesthetically pleasing punch. The Raven 3 has been engineered for innovative heat dissipation, the fact that heat rises SilverStone has turned the motherboard 90°, and stacked all of the gear vertically rather than horizontally like what we typically see in other cases.?"

Sentey SS1-2421 Slim Series Case Review @Hi Tech Legion
     Fri, Nov 25 2011 | 9:18P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sentey SS1-2421 case is part of Sentey`s Slim Series lineup and comes with a 450W SFX12V power supply. The Sentey SS1-2421 can house a micro-ATX or ITX motherboard and up to four low profile PCI devices as an HTPC or an office computer. The front panel LCD on the Sentey SS1-2421 slim tower case features an automatic fan controller, temperature monitor and HDD activity display. The Sentey SS1-2421 has a dark high-quality glossy finish and maintains aesthetic uniformity at the front through the use of a built-in flip-down optical drive bezel. Designed to be slim and compact, the Sentey SS1-2421 is ideal for as an office computer or an HTPC."

Lancool PC-K57 Review at Overclockers Online
     Fri, Nov 25 2011 | 10:18A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Lancool PC-K57 has a lot of good features going for it. Right from the beginning the bold bezel representing some old school knight armour is very hard to miss. If you want to stand out, that?s definitely one way to do it. However, inside the case is just as impressive as the outside. You don?t need any tools to install your components, forget just tool-less hard drive or expansion slot. The PC-K57 gives you tool-less motherboard and power supply installation!"

Antec Eleven Hundred Mid-Tower Gaming Case Review @Hi Tech Legion
     Fri, Nov 25 2011 | 9:05A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Antec Eleven Hundred Gaming Case is next in line in the Gaming series. The Eleven Hundred contains some nice features that are needed in higher end gaming cases. There is room to fit up to an XL-ATX motherboard inside with full compatibility for multiple GPU configurations. The Eleven Hundred can support GPU`s up to 13 inches and high end 3-way SLI / 4-way CrossFireX setups. There are2 fans included; a 200mm Blue LED top fan, and a 120mm rear exhaust fan.

Lian Li PC-TU200 Mini-ITX Chassis Review
     Fri, Nov 25 2011 | 9:04A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are looking at a new chassis from Lian Li that has been nicknamed the Adventurer on the packaging. The actual naming of this all aluminum chassis is the PC-TU200 Mini Tower chassis. As with the cases that used to house our remote nuclear launch capability, or even thinking back to my musically inclined days, a lot of the electronics shipped from gig to gig in cases much like this. The rugged look of reinforced corners with aluminum plates riveted to the frame over the sides of the case for added protection against any accidental abuse this case may encounter in its travels. Taking this one step further, the PC-TU200 has a large comfortable metal handle on the top as to not only fully support the weight of its contents, but also to make lugging it from place to place a breeze. With the idea of an industrial aluminum briefcase in mind, let`s look and see just what Lian Li has inside and out of their Adventurer."

NZXT Source 220 @ techPowerUp
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 11:33P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NZXT Source 220 aims to deliver cool looks, capable interior, USB 3.0 - all at a really affordable price point. The Source series of cases aims to take on the budget market, but still offers the distinct NZXT looks we have come to expect. How does it turn out?"

Silverstone Strider Essential Series (ST70F-ES)
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 5:57P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Until recently, the Strider Essential Series came in sizes up to 600 watts. This made it a great upgrade for your typical home system and mid end gaming system, but put it out of reach of higher end systems running multiple high end graphics cards, RAID arrays, etc. Looking to put the Strider Essential Series into the hands of those building high end systems, a 700W model is now available, and here on my test bench today."

Antec P180 Mini @ Rbmods
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 5:15P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Some of us prefer small computers over the traditional sized ones and Micro-ATX is the answer to those preferences. Unfortunately good looking, high quality, micro-atx cases are hard to come by. Antec provided us with the little brother of the many times awarded P182 case, called P180 Mini. Let?s take a closer look at it and see how good it actually is!"

Thermaltake V9 BlacX Edition PC Case Review
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 3:16P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a set of exciting and innovative features such as an dual top HDD docking station, USB 3.0 connectivity, complete tool-less design, spacious interior able to fit even the longest graphics cards and a top 230mm exhaust fan the latest V9 BlacX Midi Tower PC Case by Thermaltake really has the potential to be your dream case."

Jul 27 | Motherboards
The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
