Corsair Graphite 380T Review
     Fri, Apr 10 2015 | 12:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
No doubt you are beginning to lose track of all the cases that Corsair has in its range but honestly, the Graphite 380T is easy to remember. You see it is Mini-ITX and it has a handle on the top, and the sample we have here is yellow and black in colour, rather like a wasp or hornet only with fewer wings. As it happens I was expecting either a black case with red lighting or a black and white model with white lighting, so you have avoided a weak joke about zebras by the narrowest of margins.

Raidmax Viper GX II Review
     Thu, Apr 09 2015 | 11:55A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Viper GX II is on of the latest mid-tower cases from Raidmax, 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 a hot-swap bay and a reasonable price.

Antec P70 Case Review
     Thu, Apr 09 2015 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Antec 900 made true case history with the little Mid Tower monster and his big brother the Antec 1200 gaming case. These cases were the first case with a huge 200mm exhaust fan and it revolutionized air cooling computers for a decade to come and with its dual 120mm lighted intake fans in the front and that giant top 200mm exhaust and even a 120mm fan attached to this case, it was a piece of computer aerodynamics history that was proven over and over by temperature tests by owners and reviewers all over the world to be the best they had ever witnessed. There were revisions over the years and a second generation to the 900 case, and it went over okay I guess; but the price and the look of the original real thing was so incredible it was hard to get people to buy the next gen cover model. Even, now I am almost sure that there are a few Antec 900 user’s out there reading this review on the internet right now. It has been Newegg.com’s Most Sold computer case ever in history and has been on the number one spot of the Electronics’ Billboard Charts of production cases since its inception almost a full decade ago. Now 9 years have passed and sure there have been lot of Antec cases since then but nothing to rate or to make history like the Antec 900, but Antec has a new Economy case called the Antec P70. I really don’t think that this case is going to make history like its grandfather but he is quite a case of it’s own."

Silverstone Raven RV05-BW Chassis Review
     Wed, Apr 08 2015 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Silverstone are back again with the latest entry in their now legendary Raven series. We’ve always loved the Raven chassis here at eTeknix and while we’ve not reviewed the entire range, I have spent some time tinkering with each of them personally. Just check out our Reviews of the RV04 and theRVZ01 here to see what else they have to offer. Of course if you’re eager to check out their latest and greatest, then you’ll do better to stick around for the rest of this review first. The Raven series is something of a flagship range for Silverstone, often pushing innovation and very unique designs for the gaming PC market. They’ve often been big, relatively expensive and uniquely styled compared to rival offerings, but the RV05 looks set to do thing a little differently. The 5.25? drive bays are gone, allowing much more room for the motherboard and other components, while also allowing Silverstone to cut the overall size of the chassis down considerably, this is backed up by a much more affordable price tag when compared to the older Raven models, which often cost a little over £100 at release, where as the RV05 is a much more wallet friendly £80.00.

Case Mod Friday: LUMO
     Wed, Apr 08 2015 | 12:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have B NEGATIVE's “LUMO” build. This mod takes the In Win D-Frame Mini to a whole new level and there is so much detail and customization on this case its crazy! Here is that builder B NEGATIVE said about it, "After the S3, which is far too large for a LAN box like originally planned, I wanted a smaller footprint and something a bit more aesthetically pleasing,so, after seeing this gorgeous case at Computex, I made some inquiries at In Win and here is the result!""

Corsair Graphite 380T Mini-ITX Chassis Review
     Tue, Apr 07 2015 | 4:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new model, the 380T is the baby brother of the pack, the first in the Graphite series to be built for a mini-ITX form factor and it has been designed with portability in mind, making it (in theory) a great choice for a LAN gaming rig, but of course I’ll be trying to find that out for myself. Small size is one thing, but Corsair are not about to sell themselves short and the 380T is packed full of features that make it ideal for a high-end gaming PC. On top of that, this chassis features a very unique design that certainly stands out from the crowd. So let’s stop beating around the bush and get stuck in, because I’m eager to show you what this chassis has to offer.

Lian Li PC-Q33
     Tue, Apr 07 2015 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When a builder is contemplating a mini-ITX system the primary driver is going to be the size. It’s incredible that we've reached the point where we can have a powerful single-GPU system with minimal (if any) tradeoffs from the tiny mITX form-factor, but the components need to be housed in an appropriately small enclosure or the entire purpose is defeated. However working within small enclosures is often more difficult, unless the enclosure has been specifically designed to account for this. Certainly no slouch in the design department, Lian Li is no stranger to small, lightweight mini-ITX designs like this. The NCASE M1 (a personal favorite) was manufactured by the company after all, and in some ways the PC-Q33 is reminiscent of that design - in build quality and materials if nothing else. The Q33 features aluminum construction and is very light, and while compact the design of the enclosure allows for effortless component installation. The secret? A hinged design that allows the front of the enclosure to swing down providing full access to the interior.

BitFenix AEGIS Review
     Mon, Apr 06 2015 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink

AEGIS is a M-ATX computer case which arrives in a selection of exciting colours. This case promises to offer flexibility by accommodating large CPU coolers, big graphics cards and numerous fans/radiators for those wanting to enhance the cooling potential.

Cooler Master Silencio 652S Mid Tower Chassis Review
     Mon, Apr 06 2015 | 2:19P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Computer chassis are one of the few very subjective pieces of a computer system. What one person likes another may not. With that being said, today I have the pleasure of taking a look at the Cooler Master Silencio 652S. As they say, silence is golden so Cooler Master has put some effort into insulating the Silencio 652S. Each of the panels have a sound dampening material pair with it to kill the sound. Read on to see how this case handles our system build!

Cooler Master Octane M35 and MB7C review
     Mon, Apr 06 2015 | 2:16P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Being a gamer is not necessarily cheap. If you want to do it on a console, it is going to cost you a few hundred on the latest system and then at least another triple digit figure to get all the controllers, games and accessories. While gaming PCs are a lot more bang for buck these days, their peripherals can cost even more, with some gaming mice and keyboards setting you back over £100 each. Not so in the case of the Octane set from Cooler Master which hopes to make gaming peripherals affordable for everyone. But as always, the question is, does a price drop mean the quality suffers?

Orange Horizon
     Mon, Apr 06 2015 | 2:15P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have easynator's “Orange Horizon” build. Here is what he had to say about it, "This will be my first build, even if I've been working in IT for more than 20 years. I don't have a lot of time nor the tools but I'm really looking forward to successfully complete this build. I already see a few challenges, but guess what, I'm up to it. I'm going to call this build the Project Orange Horizon, a mix of white and orange.

BE QUIET! Silent Base 800 Case Review
     Mon, Apr 06 2015 | 12:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“BE QUIET! decided it was time to try and break into the computer chassis market while staying true to their values of silent computing. While the Silent Base 800 already appears to have the proper design to help reduce noise, the real question is whether this case will be able to offer room for high end computer parts combined with advanced cooling. “

Phanteks Enthoo Evolv Computer Case
     Mon, Apr 06 2015 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As more enthusiasts realize that they don’t need the expansion capabilities of standard ATX motherboards, mATX and mini-ITX systems are exploding in popularity, and we’re seeing some real innovation in small systems case design. Today we have Phanteks’ latest, the Enthoo Evolv ITX case. This case has excellent air flow, a very versatile design, and is perfect for those who want to water-cool their systems: it can accommodate a 240mm radiator and even comes with a bracket for a separate water pump if you want to roll your own. Long graphics cards are no problem, either, and integrated cable management features make a clean build easy. Of course the real proof is building a system in this case, and that’s exactly what Benchmark Reviews will do.

"The ECS LIVA X surprised me with its small size and completely silent operation. I was able to surf the internet and do work on it very quickly. I enjoyed using it and experienced no problems with browsing the internet, using Office applications, or watching streaming videos on Netflix. Amazon Prime would occasionally lag a little – usually when the HUD would pop up. Boot up and shut down times were very fast – at most 17 seconds to boot. Having the USB ports on the front was very convenient, as was the wireless connectivity options. The LIVA X did run fairly cool, being barely warm to the touch after running all day in a room balanced at 19 °C.”
