Corsair Obsidian Series 650D Mid Tower Case Review
     Mon, Jun 20 2011 | 12:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Corsair's Obsidian Series of computer cases took the world by storm not too long ago. As a new case manufacturer they decided to leave all the glitz and glamour at the door to instead opt for a refined and unified look. With almost unparalleled cable routing, superb design for water coolers, and its utilitarian design, the Corsair Obsidian 800D won Legit Review's Innovation award. Now Corsair has been hard at work developing a new chassis for the Obsidian line of computer cases and the 650D is the brand new Mid-Tower for that lineup. The first images of the much anticipated Corsair Obsidian Series 650D chassis showed up at CES 2011 and the case hit store shelves in April 2011 with a current price of $179.99 with a two year warranty. Images are out and it is obvious that Corsair took large notes from their success with the Graphite Series 600T Mid-Tower when they made the 650D. Today we're going to take a look at the Corsair 650D and see if it has the ability to grab our coveted Editor's Choice award like its brothers, the 600T and 700D..."

In Win Dragon Slayer Computer Case Review
     Sun, Jun 19 2011 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you have a mATX motherboard kicking around and want to put it to use, why not put it to use with style in the In Win Dragon Slayer? Don't have a mATX motherboard, you aren't alone; and I can assure you this chassis is not for you. This computer case reminds me of the feeling you get when getting into a compact car, and you are expecting it to be tiny. Suddenly, you get in it, and it feels roomier than a big truck -- go figure. The Dragon Slayer is a fairly small sized case, yet provides lots of playing room. In fact, it is large enough to handle two full sized VGA cards. On the other hand, the style of the case is up to debate; it neither impresses me nor disappoints me. Oddly, the case reminds more of a supply crate from a video game, and not as much as the acclaimed medieval chain armor. The side panel looks like someone had a fun time with a drill, but otherwise the front of the case has a very nice glow to the In Win logo -- if your computer isn't already bright enough. Oh wait, is this the introduction? Too bad. I am not going to give too much of my review away right now. As I have mentioned earlier, this is a mATX chassis, so if you are using an ATX board, the Dragon Slayer will not work for you. But if you are looking for a mATX case, then read on to find if this is the one to get!

600T mid-tower
     Sun, Jun 19 2011 | 12:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When the Corsair 600T was first released it was only available in gun-metal gray and as we all know black has been in style for years, but is starting to get boring. Corsair recognized this and has 'refreshed' the 600T in order to bring out a Special Edition White case that looks pretty stunning with a mixture of white and black bezels. The Special Edition white also comes with a hole in the side panel that you can insert either an acrylic window or mesh panel into depending on how you want to configure the case. Both panels are included, which is a nice touch as you can change it when your needs change down the road..."

Antec Six Hundred 600 Gaming Mid-Tower Computer Case Review
     Sun, Jun 19 2011 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Antec's Six Hundred gaming chassis has proven to be a bit of a mixed bag. I like the look and the few features that it has are quite good, but Antec touts it as, "The Ultimate Gaming Case." I'll take exception with them on this point."

BitFenix Shinobi Window Mid Tower Chassis Review
     Sun, Jun 19 2011 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Bringing affordable chassis designs to the masses is what BitFenix has been about since its inception. Not only have they been great at delivering wallet friendly designs, BitFenix has also delivered shapes, lighting, textures and all around good looking chassis' so far. Up to now it seems they are well known for the Colossus in its many flavors. While that design is a very large full tower chassis, sometimes that isn't what's needed for a build, or the larger frame just won't fit in your limited spacing. BitFenix already released one mid tower chassis design with the Survivor and Survivor Core cases. While I thought the chassis was stunning to look at, it was complicated to get inside once fully assembled. So, BitFenix went back to the design team and said, let's deliver another mid tower chassis, but make it look nothing like the Survivor or Colossus cases already out there. This time around they delivered me a more subdued chassis with straight lines and a small stature as to accommodate everything from a full ATX build down to mini-ITX systems. Not only that, but they offer it in a case that fits not only in the spacing that is sometimes limited, but with the more subtle styling that allows this new chassis to fit with almost any décor."

Sentey Black Box Series BX1-4284 Mid Tower Case
     Sat, Jun 18 2011 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sentey wants to be considered among the premium do-it-yourself brands, and with the Black Box Series BX1-4284 mid tower case they are well on their way. Version 2.1 of their black series case certainly didn't disappoint. We were immediately impressed with the fit-and-finish of the overall build and the implementation of the tool-less functionality.

In-Win Buc Mid Tower Case
     Fri, Jun 17 2011 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our impression with In-Win is that the company often offers products with a slight artistic flavor. Take their Na, for example. Despite being a simple enclosure, it has elegant looks and an artistic flair that draws attention. While not as well-known as big players like Antec, Thermaltake, or Silverstone when comes to computer chassis, In-Win has a long history of making computer cases. Their latest enthusiast's case, the Buc, combines their artistic talent and functionalities. And the end result is a feature-rich chassis with a unique look.

Coolermaster Storm Enforcer

"Another day another review and today it’s a gaming chassis. Coolermaster have sent down their Enforcer case that’s part of the Storm range of enclosures and peripherals. It’s got a side window, a large cooling fan and internal USB 3.0 support; let’s see if its other features are as solid."

all-aluminum TJ11
     Fri, Jun 17 2011 | 12:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SilverStone engineers aim to create another first-class, no-holds-barred chassis with the Temjin TJ11. The TJ11 incorporates some great features from past SilverStone products along with new designs, such as the “Air Penetrator” fans, to help achieve this goal. In addition, there are plenty of ergonomic touches, such as quick access filters, hot-swappable hard drive bays, removable motherboard tray, CPU back plate cutout, and optimized cable routing paths to keep your system running as efficiently as possible. For hardcore enthusiasts, the all-aluminum TJ11 was specifically designed to be easy to work with, as the entire chassis is free of rivets, so everything can be taken apart. It also has a larger “downstairs” compartment than the TJ07, built to house the largest 4×140mm radiators available on the market. The potential and the flexibility of TJ11 should be unrivaled in today’s marketplace. However, we will be tossing the TJ11 on our test bench to find out just how good Silverstone did in the creation of the TJ11. Let’s see how it stands up to these lofty expectations, shall we?

AZZA Toledo 301
     Thu, Jun 16 2011 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Azza Toledo 301 brings a lot of neat features to the table. It supports a 240mm radiator, so if water cooling is in your area of interest, than this is definitely an option to consider. It also features great tool-less solutions for the hard drives and optical drives. Sure, the wire management could have been better, due to the poor placement of the hard drive connectors, but in the long run it didn't impact performance - just aesthetics. The case is very upgrade-able, also being able to take on up to six additional fans."

Cooler Master Centurion 5 II
     Thu, Jun 16 2011 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"While looking at the back, one notices the red interior color, which is also present on the rear around the Motherboard I/O and expansion slots. Like many case manufacturers are doing now, CoolerMaster also chose to mount the PSU at the bottom of the case. The top panel of the case features the ability to accept either a 120mm or 140mm fan. The bottom of the case includes a fan hole if you choose to mount your PSU so the fan is facing downward and the case does include a fan filter for this application. The bottom also features round rubber feet to resist slipping.

AZZA Toledo 301 Mid-Tower Case - BCCHardware
     Wed, Jun 15 2011 | 11:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I found the AZZA Toledo 301 to be constructed well. Its chassis is made of 1mm SECC steel. Although it has a lot of plastic on the front and top, it does not feel flimsy. The tool-less mounting system for HDD and optical drive was easy to use. It felt very secure. It has a Transformer?ish appearance that is very aggressive. The pre-installed fans are nice, but it could use at least 1x120mm fan in top to help with exhausting all the heat from the case. . ."

Thermaltake eSports Armor A30 mATX LAN Case Review
     Tue, Jun 14 2011 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Thermaltake has brought this case to market with a design for gamers and I think they did well in regard to the aesthetic design. This is the kind of case I know a lot of gamers like. Construction on this case is also great; it's very rigid and the plastic bits have almost no flex in them. Thermaltake also has this case for sale at an attractive price of $109 with a 3 Year Warranty. Thermaltake also offers spot on results for their fan specifications, making this case incredibly quiet. Which would be great if the case were for HTPC use..."

Cooler Master Storm Enforcer Mid-Tower Gaming Case Review
     Mon, Jun 13 2011 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The latest enclosure in the Cooler Master Storm line is the Enforcer Mid-Tower Gaming Case. With a unique beveled nose, well placed side window, reinforced front door and red LED lighting, the Storm Enforcer looks every inch a gaming case. But gaming requirements go beyond looks, and the Storm Enforcer doesn’t stop there. The Enforcer has a rotatable and removable HDD cage capable of holding six 3.5” drives, as well as a removable cage for two 2.5” drives for SSD users. The removable cage allows for 390mm VGA card clearance with the top cage removed, easily enough for any of today’s cards. The front I/O features 2 USB 3.0 with MB connection, 2 USB 2.0 as well as audio jacks. Cooling comes in the form of a 200mm front intake and a 140mm rear exhaust, with a 200mm or two 120mm top exhaust fans optional. The Enforcer also features Cooler Master’s unique “Storm Guard” to help keep your peripherals a little safer at LAN parties."

Lian Li PV-V600FR @ PureOverclock
     Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 3:25A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lian Li has recently gone with products that fill a wider range of selection, rather than just the full towers they are historically best known for. The Lian Li PC-V600FR Micro ATX chassis comes in a few different flavours, sporting different sizes and windowed or non-windowed packages, but each have the same basic aesthetic styling, design features, and a few classic Lian Li cues thrown in for good measure. This premium all-aluminum Mini Tower chassis from Lian Li is designed specifically for the enthusiast, who is looking for first and for most, quality, beauty, and functionality, and all this in a small platform that won`t break the bank."
