NZXT S340 Review
     Fri, Sep 25 2015 | 12:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The manufacturer NZXT is well known for their futuristic computer cases and hardware accessories. Today, however, the manufacturer sends a case into the race, which looks conservative only at first glance. In this review, we want to determine if the NZXT S340 case is a boring average, or a stylish understatement case.

The Cooltek RM1 Case arrived Technic3D. The RM1 supports ATX, Mini-ITX and Micro-ATX motherboards and have place for one 120mm Cooling-Fan. We will check this and many more in the following Review."

SilverStone CS01B-HS Mini-ITX Case Review
     Thu, Sep 24 2015 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Two versions of the anodized black CS01B computer case exist, one with a mesh top and the option to install two 2.5? and two 3.5? drives. The second is the CS01B-HS, which removes the pair of 3.5? drives in favor of six hot-swappable 2.5? bays. Also included in both models is a single 120mm air penetrator fan, one expansion slot, and a sturdy aluminum construction throughout. SilverStone is not intending this to be used for gaming, but rather for an office environment. In this article for Benchmark Reviews, we will specifically look at the CS01B-HS version, deciding whether or not SilverStone has succeeded in creating such a product, and then deliver an overall rating.

Bit Fenix Alchemy 2.0 Magnetic LED Strips @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Sep 24 2015 | 12:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When case modding was getting started everyone who wanted to light up their PC turned to cold cathodes for lighting. Things progressed and we later saw LEDs starting in plastic pucks and then later on strips becoming popular. While I don’t use lighting in every build, I have used them in a few. A few years ago we even took a look at lighting options from Bit Fenix. At the time they were still a relatively new company and they were starting to expand their product lines. Well a few years later Bit Fenix reached out, excited to show off the latest version of their LED lighting, the Alchemy 2.0. This time around they dropped the adhesive and went with magnets to keep the lighting in place. Considering how much we liked their first kits, I couldn’t turn down taking a look at the new design. So today I’m going to take a quick look and find out what they are all about.

BitFenix Shadow Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Wed, Sep 23 2015 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
BitFenix are one of the coolest chassis manufacturers around, they’ve made many great products; especially in the last couple of years with the release of products such as the Prodigy, Phenom and Colossus. Today we’re taking a look at their latest chassis, the Shadow, and while I doubt it’ll be as legendary as the Prodigy, it looks like a promising entry to the budget friendly mid-tower market. The BitFenix Shadow is priced for the mid budget part of the market, typically where your average consumer will be spending their money when planning their new gaming build. To meet the demands of your average consumer and gaming rig, the Shadow has been equipped with plenty of features. There’s room for mini-ITX, Micro-ATX or ATX motherboards, three 5.25? drives, seven 3.5? drives and a single dedicated 2.5? mount; which is way more storage space than most people will likely ever need. Since the market is so competitive, a chassis in this price range usually needs a few extras to stand out from the crowd; the Shadow ticks a few more boxes as it comes with two pre-installed BitFenix 120mm fans, SofTouch Surface Treatment, selectable red/blue LEDs and dust filters.

Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV ATX Computer Case Review

Sleek design and a tinted side window: Is the Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV ATX a formula for success?

BitFenix AEGIS Core mATX Case Review
     Tue, Sep 22 2015 | 12:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The BitFenix AEGIS is quite an interesting microATX case. Its shield-inspired front is stylistic and they claim that it also helps to keep down noise. It is offered in bold colors and just like many cases as of late, its designed has been heavy influenced by watercooling capability and modularity. This case can support up to eight 120mm fans or five 140mm fans, or if you are going the watercooling route, it can support dual 280mm radiators or even a 360mm and 280mm radiator combo!

Case Mod Friday: THAURUS
     Tue, Sep 22 2015 | 12:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have sangyzan's “THAURUS” build. Here is what he had to say about it, "The project called WILL BE Thaurus, the particularity of this mod lies on the front, which can hold the part of the watercooling and Ie cans and a radiator 240mm When so allowing more space and thus more ventilation at the hardware of the PC. It will have a look attractive lines yet elegant. The Project will have as base the beautiful In Win 503 which will go modified according to my parameters.""

In Win 805 Case Review
     Tue, Sep 22 2015 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In Win is a company we’ve known for some really crazy PC case designs. They show off a special edition case every year at Computex and this year was no different. Many of their cases have features glass panels like the S-Frame or D-Frame, but these cases are not always what users are looking for and hold pretty high retail prices. There is where In Win comes in with the 805, a mid tower chassis that conforms to the typical “tower” case design, but is mostly made of glass. The front panel and both side panels are made of 3mm-thick tempered glass and the rest of the case is made of high-quality aluminum. All of this together makes for a very traditional, yet different looking case. This is also one of the first cases that we have seen that features a front-mounted USB 3.1 Type-C port. Let’s jump in and see what this case is all about!"

In Win 703 Review
     Mon, Sep 21 2015 | 12:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 703 is one of the latest mid-tower cases from In Win, which offers plenty of interior space in order to build gaming systems. Apart from that there are quite a few neat little features, like for example washable dust filters and a reasonable price.

Case Mod Friday: Prodigy Sensation
     Sat, Sep 19 2015 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have euf0ria's “Prodigy Sensation” build. Here is what he had to say about it, "This build have been going on from late 2012 until start of 2014 where it´s slowly reaching a final state. Many parts have been designed from scratch and produced using CAD software and generators for voronoi-diagram which is the math behind the biologic and natural flow of the coverplates and fanguards. Lasercutting, watercutting, powdercoating and sticker printer/cutting are techniques that have been used, just to name the coolest ones, all thanks to my dear friends. All cables have been sleeved and cut to right length and many have even been made from scratch. Custom handpicked waterloop with biggest single radiator that fitted the footprint. Colorscheme is a cameleont one and sets for a white/blue theme in daylight and a UV/white-blue in the cosy nightmode.""

HBT+ Turbine 700 Case Review
     Sat, Sep 19 2015 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A unique feature of the HBT+ Turbine 700 is that the interior is divided into two physical sections. The front holds the electronics including motherboard, video card and cooling while the back allows access to power supply, cable management and storage. Not only does this help in case cooling but also gives the aspiring modder a much larger canvas to work from.

SilverStone FTZ01B Review
     Fri, Sep 18 2015 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You can think of the SilverStone FTZ01 as a member of the Fortress Series Z with a B suffix for Black or S for Silver. FTZ01 is described as a ‘premium slim form factor case with superior thermodynamics and construction’ and while these claims are correct they tell only part of the story.

In Win 707 Full Tower Case Review
     Thu, Sep 17 2015 | 3:29P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Simply put, there are a lot of case manufactures that are vying for your business. Some use "gimmicky" tactics to entice you to buy their case; only to find out later that the item does not work as intended for very long or you just do not use that specific function of the case. In my opinion, a case should …

Rapoo VPRO V900 Review
     Thu, Sep 17 2015 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently we have tested the mechanical gaming keyboard from Rapoo V800. But from a beautiful plate alone you will not get well-fed. Of course you still need the right utensils. And that provides Rapoo with their new gaming mouse V900 from the VPRO series. In the following review we will see how well the mouse performs in everyday life and whether it is really suitable for gaming.
