Lancool PC-K65 Case Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Tue, May 15 2012 | 8:11A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lancool is a brand that belongs to Lian Li, and is used for cases from this company that are not made entirely of aluminum. Typically, Lancool cases have an aluminum front panel and steel body. Having two separate brands is a two-edged sword. While it helps users to easily identify the material the case is made of, oftentimes resellers list products under the wrong brand. (Case in point: This particular case is listed at Newegg.com as Lian Li, not Lancool.) In addition, the manufacturer is not clear on its marketing message to the end-user about the difference between the two brands."

REVIEW: Cooler Master HAF XM @ PureOverclock
     Mon, May 14 2012 | 1:21P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A company like Cooler Master really needs no introduction; they are still in business today because they push the envelope of what a computer case should be, every time making a better case. The Cooler Master HAF series has proven to be very popular and successful with enthusiasts, particularly those with water cooling dreams. The new HAF XM is a mid-tower that looks to continue that trend, with a slightly smaller size and a great price of only $130. What improvements and features has Cooler Master has added into the updated design? Is this an improvement in the shape of a mid-tower to improve on the successful HAF lineup? Let`s take a close look at the new HAF XM and find out."

Cubitek HPTX-ICE Case Review
     Mon, May 14 2012 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Founded in spring 2010, Cubitek is a relative newcomer to the chassis industry, but that's not stopping it from challenging the biggest names in the business -- including veteran Lian Li. Last month, the company unveiled its latest ICE series with five premium models spanning everything from Mini-ITX to HPTX. All of the ICE series chassis feature a 2.5mm aluminum construction and Cubitek says this makes them stronger than standard aluminum cases while maintaining a thin and light figure. At $360, the HPTX-ICE is among the priciest cases around, so we're expecting good things -- though the competition is certainly stiff. Lian Li's PC-V2120 is $350, and it left a strong impression when we reviewed in 2010. Let's move on and see what the HPTX-ICE is made of, literally and figuratively.

REVIEW: BitFenix Raider @ PureOverclock
     Sun, May 13 2012 | 4:19P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
From budget brawlers like the Merc that pack an undeniable bang for your buck, to full bodied and full strength towers like the Colossus full tower, and a fan favorite the Shinobi, BitFenix has had quite a successful run of late. But the mid-tower market is a very tough one to crack, and the Raider is the latest from BitFenix that looks to continue their successful trend in this mid-range market. Can the Raider live up to its siblings standard of excellence? Will it survive the Pure OC hardware grinder? We will find out soon enough."

11 computer cases tested, from £70 - £110
     Sun, May 13 2012 | 12:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Computer cases still get plenty of attention from both industry and consumers. Other PC product areas are steadily shrinking, but new brands of computer cases still regularly appear. The result is that you still see innovation in this area. Especially brands that cost a bit more truly give you your money’s worth. We tested 11 cases on build quality, noise production, and their ability to get rid of hot air.

Cooler Master CM690 II Advanced Case Review
     Sun, May 13 2012 | 12:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today I’ll be taking a look at the Cooler Master CM690 Advanced 3.0 Case. This is not one of their latest cases but seeing its price tag (ranges from 80-90 euro) makes it a interesting buy. Looking at the specs, it offers everything you would expect from a decent case. Cooler Master has been around for a while now and they hit their 20th anniversary this year, the company has remained faithful to its mission, emerging as a world leader in products and services for companies dealing with devices where heat issues must be resolved. Their product line ranges beyond just cooling products, cases and power supplies and even gaming peripherals like keyboards and mouses is included in their line up.

REVIEW: NZXT Switch 810 @ PureOverclock
     Sat, May 12 2012 | 3:51P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the last year and a half, NZXT has been releasing cases that feature more subtle designs, better features, improved quality, and all this while still maintaining competitive prices. We have to admit, we love the new NZXT. And now comes the NZXT Switch 810, a premium tower that comes with a very unique and styling aesthetic, plenty of handy features, excellent build quality, and tons of interior space. Let`s take a closer look at the NZXT Switch 810, there`s a boatload to see with this case, and find out if it`s NZXT`s best case to date."

NZXT Switch 810 Review
     Sat, May 12 2012 | 8:59A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Well folks, many of us may remember the Cooler Master HAF 932 when it came out and many of those who do will remember the awe that some of us felt about its cooling capabilities and performance. It seems that the NZXT 810 is equal or better than the HAF 932 in every test other than one, in which it was only a single degree worse off. The hard drive temperatures are excellent thanks to the push/pull configuration through the hard drive cage, and the GPU temperatures are made superior by the extra fan(s) specifically to cool the GPU(s). As far as these numbers go, this should put the NZXT Switch 810 at the top of many competitors` lists."

NZXT Tempest 410 Elite Mid-Tower Case Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Wed, May 09 2012 | 1:31A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NZXT Tempest 410 Elite Mid Tower adds a bit of intrigue into the gaming realm. The Tempest 410 Elite has some unique features that set it apart from many of the other cases. It is an identical twin to it`s brother, the Tempest 410, except the Elite comes with a full sized window to show off all of the goodies inside. Comparatively, the Elite still retains the two touch powered 120mm intake fans. These fans remove easily to expose a 8 front loading 3.5 HDD bays. The top of the Elite houses a hidden tray that has enough room to fit extra thumb drives or cables. The backend of the top is removable and exposes an area that can house up to two 140mm fans or a dual radiator liquid cooling setup. Also included is a rear 120mm fan. The Elite features a completely tool free rail design for both the 3.5 and 5.25 bays. GPU support is up to 315mm when the top HDD bays aren`t in use.///"

Antec Three Hundred Two review: high-end entry-level chassis?
     Tue, May 08 2012 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Three Hundred Two is a chassis that seems to have been created with two goals in mind: to make the case as affordable as possible while also maintaining the features for a high-end system. This requires compromises to be made, which in this case has translated to a somewhat higher price combined with more internal space and superior cooling compared to the predecessor. There is plenty of space for components, even if some choices are unusual (SSD behind the motherboard plate) or mounting techniques that are a bit roundabout (external securing of cards). On the other hand, the Three Hundred Two cools very well, especially for a chassis with just two fans.

NZXT Switch 810 @ techPowerUp
     Tue, May 08 2012 | 1:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the NZXT Switch 810, the company inches toward the higher end spectrum of the market, offering an XL-ATX chassis in white or black. With a unique interior and some really cool features, the Switch 810 makes a great impression."

Zalman Z11 Plus Mid Tower Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sun, May 06 2012 | 5:21P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Zalman?s Z11 Plus MId Tower is their upgrade to the Z9 Plus, which we took a look at about a year ago. Zalman takes some of the features of the Z9 Plus and adds to it and gives it a little bit of a make over. The new Z11 plus features a futuristic look, 5 included fans with room for up to 7, USB 3.0 support, and support for 2.5-inch hard drives. The case is selling for only $84.99, so is it a steal? Will this case put Zalman back on the map when it comes to PC cases? Read on to find out!"

Silverstone TJ04-E Evolution Case Review
     Sun, May 06 2012 | 12:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the first Silverstone cases we ever reviewed was the Temjin TJ04 and felt it was one of the cleanest looking cases you could buy. In that review we also discovered that while it did look amazing the case was plagued with a few cooling issues that were easily solved with a few modifications. In this review we will be looking at the TJ04-E Evolution chassis. The case is based on the original TJ04 design but with a few significant upgrades.
