Source S340 from NZXT has
     Sat, Nov 26 2016 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Source S340 from NZXT has been one of my favorite enclosures since I reviewed it early in 2015, offering a fantastic price/performance proposition with a street price between $69 and $79. Fortunately, this outstanding compact ATX design isn't going anywhere, and since my original review NZXT has introduced a premium Designed by Razer version, and this new S340 Elite was released just last month.

Thermaltake Core G3 Slim ATX Chassis Review
     Sat, Nov 26 2016 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink

Thermaltake's Core G3 Slim ATX cases represents tremendous value for money in terms of what you get and what you can do with this unique product."

Aerocool DS230 Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Thu, Nov 24 2016 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the most successful product ranges from Aerocool is without a doubt their Dead Silence series. The DS Cube chassis, the DS200 mid-tower chassis, and the DS fans, have all won awards from many sites around the world, including from myself here at eTeknix over the last few years. They delivered silent performance and stunning aesthetics, and that’s something Aerocool are keen to continue with the release of the Aerocool DS230 Mid-Tower Chassis.

Thermaltake View 27 tower
     Tue, Nov 22 2016 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HardwareOverclock.com has just posted another review. Last week we have tested the Thermaltake View 27 tower. This tower is the worldwide first with Gull-Wing Window. Unlike any other cases that come with a transparent panel on the market, the gull-wing window design allows users to fully display their system whilst keeping the interior dust free.

Fractal Design Define C Case Review
     Tue, Nov 22 2016 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Fractal Design has really made a name for themselves since coming into the market not that long ago. Their Define Series has become a staple for people looking to build a quiet system. There are a handful of different cases in the Define Series, but Fractal Design is introducing a new one today. It is the Define C and Fractal Design keeps many of the great features of the Define Series, but is going with a more open interior which offers room for the most popular component setups. This is the first case in the Define Series that has a power supply cover, and one that is implemented quite good. Other features include sound dampening properties like sound dampening material on the front, side panel, and top, ModuVent technology, two 120 mm cooling fans, and much more! Let’s jump in and take a look!"

Lian Li PC-O9WX Tempered Glass Case Review
     Mon, Nov 21 2016 | 12:06P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are going to look at the Aerocool Strike-X Air which is a very innovative chassis, designed to appeal to those enthusiasts who spend a lot of time inside their PC and change hardware frequently. It uses an open design, similar to a test bench, which features a large mesh cover to hide the components.


Corsair Crystal 570X RGB Tempered Glass Chassis Review
     Mon, Nov 21 2016 | 12:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The third and final case to be released by Corsair today is the Crystal Series 570X RGB tempered glass premium ATX mid-tower chassis."

Corsair Crystal 570X Tempered Glass Case Review
     Mon, Nov 21 2016 | 11:59A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For years, computer cases have been made mostly of metal. A few years ago, several companies began to innovate and use alternative materials such as Tempered Glass. Those cases were typically limited editions and fairly expensive. Tempered Glass gives cases an unobstructed view of the internal components, while providing a sleek and high end feel to the case. Like most companies, Corsair has developed a new line of cases utilizing Tempered Glass panels, the first case from the new line is the Crystal 460X, it has two Tempered Glass panels, one on the side and one on the front. The next case in the new Corsair Crystal line is the Crystal 570X, it is a higher end version of the Crystal 460X.

Crystal Series 570X
     Mon, Nov 21 2016 | 11:59A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Crystal Series 570X is a beautiful case with excellent cooling performance thanks to the triple 120 mm intake fans. Noise levels are higher than average, and this was due to the stock fans running at full speed. The case offers full control of RGB lighting effects from the top panel, but there is no fan speed control. This was really my only complaint, and forgiven due to the MSRP being lower than I expected for a tempered-glass design like this (more on this in a moment)."

X2 Rindja 8020 PC Gamer Chassis Review
     Sun, Nov 20 2016 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For a mid-tower the X2 Rindja scores very highly on available interior space and that combined with its price tag are two reasons as to why you should be checking it out next time you're in the market for one.

Fractal Design's latest Define case
     Sun, Nov 20 2016 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fractal Design's latest Define case, the Define C, promises ATX expandability in a mid-tower that's no larger than some microATX cases. We put the Define C to the test to see whether Fractal's fat-trimming added any compromises on the way.

Fractal Design Define Mini C Windowed Edition Review
     Sat, Nov 19 2016 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Honey, I think we shrunk the Define R series. Swedish case manufacturer Fractal Design has been noted as the tiny company that goes toe to toe with the big case manufacturers and comes out ahead. With an impressive functionality to cost ratio, Fractal's cases are always a constant presence among PC enthusiasts, modders and even large YouTubers. Since their introduction …

DinoPC Mayhem P2 GTX 1080 Gaming PC Review
     Fri, Nov 18 2016 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Despite the huge array of components available today, it is rare to encounter a pre-configured system which looks truly unique. Of course, this isn’t always a negative concept because the interchangeability of PC components makes maintaining and upgrading systems a straightforward task. On the other hand, it’s usually up to talented modders to take a solid foundation and add a more distinctive touch. The system integrator DinoPC hasn’t conformed to traditional designs and taken a bold, innovative step to reinvigorate commonly used cases through custom vinyl finishes. This undoubtedly makes DinoPC’s creations different from the competition and provides an additional incentive to buy a pre-configured model instead of making your own self-build.

Azio MK Retro @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Nov 18 2016 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are so many different reasons why people upgrade to mechanical keyboards. For some people, it is about durability. But for a lot of people, there is a bit of nostalgia involved. Some of us grew up with clicky buckling spring keyboards and just want a little of that back. With that in mind, Azio has introduced a new keyboard that is all about going old school, even beyond those buckling spring keyboards, back to typewriters. They aren’t the first company to do it, Datamancer a company we have worked with in the past had a few typewriter style keyboards and even sold keycaps. But Azio has actually taken the next step and gone into mass production and dropped the costs considerably. So today I’m going to take a look at their MK Retro and see if it is actually a usable keyboard, or if it is just going to be a novelty.

NZXT S340 Elite ATX Case Review
     Fri, Nov 18 2016 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NZXT S340 Elite computer case expands from the original S340 with its improved cable management system, VR capabilities, and a large tempered glass side panel. Because the Elite is geared towards VR, extra USB ports with an HDMI port are located on the front. Included with the S340 Elite is a magnetic cable management puck to store VR or audio headsets for easy access. A side mounted bracket for a 2.5? SSD is located on the side of the power supply housing and the tempered glass side panel can show off the internal components. Benchmark Reviews will be taking a look at the NZXT S340 Elite in Matte Black.

Fractal Design Define C
     Thu, Nov 17 2016 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Fractal Design Define C is an optimized version of the open-air design we have seen in the Define S. Lacking the usual internal and external drive bays and with a more compact size and somewhat simplified but modernized interior, it will be interesting to see whether it can hold its own.
