BitFenix Shinobi Window Computer Case Review
     Tue, Aug 16 2011 | 5:19P | 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!

Corsair Carbide Series 400R Mid Tower Case
     Tue, Aug 16 2011 | 12:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a full stable of cases, Corsair has been well placed in the enthusiast enclosure market but they didn’t have anything to compete with the more budget friendly Cooler Master 690II and Thermaltake Elements of this world. Now things are about to change since the $99 400R is about to be introduced. This promises to continue Corsair’s tradition of well designed, high quality cases but at an ultra low price point.

Chaser MK-1 Computer Case Review
     Tue, Aug 16 2011 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away... the Thermaltake Empire ruled the cooling market. As many of you may know, such a phrase became known throughout the world in May 1977 as the phenomenon Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope hit the theaters. The series -- filled with adventures -- gave an entirely new perspective of the wonders and the infinite possibilities of space. Recently, Thermaltake too has been showing us entirely new possibilities in the PC market. Starting with the magnificent super-gaming tower, the Level 10 in late 2009, and the more down-to-earth Level 10 GT in early 2011, it's no doubt that Thermaltake has no limits to their innovations. Of course, you can very well say that both of these chassis are still too "exclusive" when looking at the average gaming chassis in the market. However, these two PC "phenomenons" aren't the only thing up Thermaltake's sleeve. Enter the Chaser MK-1, the new super gaming chassis from Thermaltake. What is different about this case? Well, for starters, it won't blow a massive hole into your wallet -- and I think that in itself is a huge accomplishment. But will this innovative "Galactic Episoda" survive the deep travels of space in the pursuit of honor and glory? Hmm, maybe I am being a little too melodramatic; nonetheless, it is still a question unanswered, so read on to find out!

Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced Full-Tower Chassis Review
     Tue, Aug 16 2011 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master's HAF series of cases have long been favored by many enthusiasts thanks to their sturdy construction and feature-rich likeness. This was especially true with the HAF 932 released three years ago. For that reason it has been updated to an 'Advanced' edition, bringing a refreshed look and some worthwhile new features.

Source 210 Elite Computer Case Review
     Mon, Aug 15 2011 | 3:23P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NZXT Source 210 Elite reminds me of November 15, 2001. Why? Well, that was the day that the word "elite" would have more than one meaning. The fact Halo was released almost ten years ago is starting to make me feel old, and I'm not even that old yet. With the anniversary version of the game coming out on November 15 this year, I have a feeling Microsoft just wants to rub it in I'm not a kid anymore. Halo was a video game I have poured endless hours into with my friends. Halo was the first game I have played in LAN parties with that has meaningful experiences. Halo means more than just shooting aliens and battling up against friends -- oh good old nostalgia. Halo was a social activity for me during my youth, and has been a huge inspiration for my adulthood. For those who don't know what a Covenant Elite is, allow me to explain. Elites are the high ranking military officers in a collective alien armada known as the Covenant. They stand at over eight feet tall, have mandibles instead of lower jaws, and look reptilian. Essentially, they were the common, yet challenging, enemy that you would fight during the campaign. The NZXT Source 210 Elite just happens to feature the same color scheme as the white elites in the game. For those that don't know, white elites were one kind of elite you feared the most, because when you came across one, it meant serious business. The real question here is, does the Source 210 Elite mean serious business, or is it just another face-roller? Read on to find out!

Air Penetrator fan (AP181)
     Sat, Aug 13 2011 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SilverStone wanted to push the thermal performance envelop of their popular Precision case series to next level, so they took their award-winning 180mm Air Penetrator fan (AP181) and put it into the PS06 tower chassis. With the AP181 and an included silent 120mm fan, the PS06 is capable of reaching the cooling levels usually reserved for chassis with twice the cost. Legit Reviews takes a closer look at this case today to see if it is worth the asking price! Quote: "The list of things to like about the SST-PS06B-W is long. I simply love the new styling that SilverStone uses in this case. No other case in SilverStone’s entire lineup offers such an edgy and unique exterior; it practically reinvents what can be done with tasteful art design and a little creativity. The hot swap bay is a terrific inclusion as is the USB 3.0 ports; the SST-AP181 intake fan is just icing on the cake..."

Thermaltake Armor A30 Case Review
     Fri, Aug 12 2011 | 1:15P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Many Lanparty cases have this low box like structure to them, but most look very plane and boring. The Armor A30 instantly looks like a strong system from first glance; it just has the gamer look to it which always makes other people think that you "MUST" be packing something heavy equipment in there. With its LED blue lights and sharp edgy looks. Many of the big developers are now using a specific name and theme to their products lately, which are names like Amor, and Enforcer and so on, I wouldn't be surprised if next week one came out called Grenade. It refers to what the big games are all about these days, modern warfare. This technique does seem to be working on us all though, we all take interest in some names as hardcore as Amor.

Razer Deathadder Transformers Edition @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Aug 12 2011 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Any long time reader has no doubt seen the Razer Deathadder before. We have used them in countless reviews including our writ-up on the new at the time 3500DPI version HERE. There is a reason for that though, over the years there hasn?t been a time that I didn?t have a Deathadder being used on my main PC or one of our test benches. The Deathadder is one of, if not the best mouse that Razer ever introduced. Because of that when we saw they introduced a Transformers edition I had to get my hands on one. Now that we have one, let?s take a closer look."

Xion Predator AXP 970 Case Review
     Wed, Aug 10 2011 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I’m always a bit skeptical of gaming cases, or the enthusiast cases. There’s no way I could convince myself to walk into my nearest Fry’s and pick one off the shelf that looked good. It simply goes against the common sense that many of us have developed to do our research before we buy. That said, when a Xion Predator AXP 970 landed in my lap for review, it felt a bit like the Russian roulette of performance cases. Knowing nothing about the case, I set out to personally acquaint myself with it. At first glance the Predator AXP 970 looks much like many other performance cases. It’s got the standard color, the obvious frontal intake fan, some distinguishing lines and the side window, or mesh in this case. However, lets not judge this boo-, err, case by its cover! A little time spent poking around inside can tell us far more about a case than the exterior alone, so let’s take a look under the hood and see what’s in store for us…"

support XL-ATX and HPTX motherboards
     Wed, Aug 10 2011 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Xigmatek is a European manufacturer of computer related products, mostly focused on cases, power supplies and cooling solutions. Most of their cases are designed for the mainstream market, offering good features and usability at a low price. Xigmatek also offers one single computer case at the time of this review which is nothing like that. Today we are going to examine and review the Elysium, a massive tower case of gigantic proportions and one of the very few cases ever able to support XL-ATX and HPTX motherboards.
