Antec Six Hundred V2 Mid-Tower Gaming Case Review
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 9:26P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"One entry in the budget gaming category is the Antec Six Hundred V2 Mid-Tower Gaming Case. The Six Hundred V2 comes with all of the same features as the original Six Hundred, but with one minor change, there is a 2.5" HDD hot swap bay instead of a 3.5" hot swap bay. The Six Hundred has 3 external 5.25" drive bays and 6 internal 3.5" drive bays. The rear has 7 expansion slots. The Six Hundred has excellent cooling with a large 200mm TriCool blue LED fan on the top and one 120mm TriCool blue LED fan on the rear. HDDs can be front loaded with a removable panel that can also house 2 more 120mm fans, if needed."

Antec ISK-100
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 9:24P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ISK-100 is the most compact Mini-ITX chassis from Antec, but still allows for two 2.5" drives to be installed along with your choice of Mini-ITX board. We fill the case with hardware to check if things are too close for comfort or if the small dimensions of the ISK-100 leave a good impression.

Thermaltake Level 10
     Thu, Apr 28 2011 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Like the Thermaltake Level 10 but couldn't justify its astronomical pricing for a case? Thermaltake hopes to address that with the Level 10 GT, which is actually within reach of enthusiast rig builders. Hit our review to see if Thermaltake still managed to keep a good thing going with the Level 10 GT despite its relatively lower $269 pricing.

Thermaltake Max 5G USB Drive Enclosure
     Tue, Apr 26 2011 | 10:30A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I'm finding it difficult to find anything I would offer up as a suggestion for the Thermaltake Max 5G USB drive enclosure. It supports the latest version of USB while being backwards compatible to previous generations, it provides active cooling with dual 80mm LED fans, it has an integrated support stand, and it has an easy way to turn off the fan's LEDs.

Antec One Hundred Mid Tower Case Review
     Tue, Apr 26 2011 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Antec One Hundred is a mid-tower gaming case aimed at value minded users. The Antec One Hundred is part of Antec’s gaming series, inheriting some attributes from its siblings while improving some features that were previously lacking in other Antec cases. Fully painted black inside and out, the Antec One Hundred has a sleek straightforward look, designed for high air flow performance. A 140mm exhaust fan at the top and a 120mm exhaust fan at the rear come pre-installed in the Antec One Hundred, with the option of adding two intake fans at the front and one more at the left side panel."

Thermaltake Level 10 GT Full Tower Gaming Chassis Review
     Mon, Apr 25 2011 | 5:10P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"For those of you who lived under a rock last year and completely missed out on the BMW Group Designworks USA inspired Level 10, Let me bring you up to speed real quick. To understand this design, you have to first envision a thick, vertically mounted motherboard tray attached to a wide flat base. Unlike a typical chassis', there wasn't the "boxed" look with this chassis at all. In this design everything was mounted to the motherboard tray for support. In the front you had and optical bay rack that was in a separate compartment than the hard drive, and which each received their own slim covers. The top half of the motherboard used a small cover to go over the CPU cooler and PWM area of the motherboard, while yet another hinged compartment covered the expansion cards. This design is very unique, and was very impressive upon release. The biggest problem with the Level 10 I saw was the devastating price tag! So what does Thermaltake do? They took all of the response from the Level 10, and went back to the drawing board to workshop some new ideas to bring costs down, but still leave the basic appeal of the original Level 10. What is surprising to me is that on top of trying to keep features that set the bar so high on the Level 10, there are actually some very user friendly improvements to be found in the new release from Thermaltake. So in reality, to some, this chassis will have what the Level 10 lacked, and ends up being, in my opinion, a better layout and thermal design than the original concept could offer."

Posted by: STAFF
Xigmatek is growing up and so are their cases. The company has made a name for themselves with their extensive entry- and mid-range enclosures, but the Elysium is not only their first full tower chassis, but it is their first HPTX capable case as well. Let's see if the Elysium is victorious in offering an appropriate resting place of the biggest and fastest hardware out there.

Sentey Arvina GS-6400B Computer Case Review
     Mon, Apr 25 2011 | 3:37P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you think of something hard and blue, what comes to mind? I wouldn't believe it if you said a computer chassis, but for the sake of this review, that is definitely what came to my mind. The part that always gets to me with computer cases is you never really know when you should replace one. Generally, it never wears out; the fans might, but those are cheap repairs. Due to the nature of it being made from steel (In many situations), it is also fairly durable. I guess one could argue that they need to upgrade to a larger case to put more components in, or they want a new look and feel for their computer. Nevertheless, computer chassis are a tricky one, because you can never really measure the case itself objectively, other than its physical dimensions, of course. It heavily depends on your personal preference. Are you looking for more room, better cooling, new look, or is it just some box to put your computer components into? I find that it is one of the most important aesthetic components to any computer, because the case can be individualized to a person; whereas, many of the internal components are not very aesthetically customizable. The Sentey Arvina GS-6400B is an interesting case -- this blue variant of the GS-6400 chassis has a nice sleek dark blue look, and comes with many notable features. Now, I'm not going to spoil the fun of telling you which exact features yet, as you will have to read on to find out all those juicy details!

Cooler Master Storm Enforcer Computer Case
     Sat, Apr 23 2011 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Let me start off by asking you this question: What did you want to be when you were growing up as a child? I have heard many answers from various different people. Some wanted to be teachers, others wanted to be policemen, and still others wanted to be programmers working for Microsoft. Being slightly stereotypical here, but by far the most common includes musician, doctor, lawyer, engineer, and other "Asian" responses along these lines (No offense to anyone, being Chinese myself, haha). For myself, I have always wanted the best of all of these, but of course, it was near impossible to be all of them at the same time. As I grew older, having the dream of being the best in the world faded out as reality came into view. As an engineer would put it, these two factors are inversely related. One of my very first choices, and it still holds today, is dreaming to be a policeman. Yes, being in an Asian family, this is certainly not high up on the list, or at least, in my family anyways. But of course, you always had to choose one out of the many, and at that time, I still wasn't sure what I wanted to be, so I chose computer science and anything related to IT. Let's be realistic here, who doesn't need an IT guy in this day and age? With the growing interest in both the police force and the field of technology, I recently came across something that seems to combine the best of both worlds. With the NDA lifting today, Cooler Master unveils the Storm Enforcer to the world. Implementing a very police-like theme in the case -- or at least in its packaging -- it offers an aggressive gaming design that is restrained to a clean model all the same time. Is this one product that would at last turn my dreams to reality? Well, you will have to read on to find out!

Thermaltake V9 BlacX Edition Mid Tower Chassis
     Sat, Apr 23 2011 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Lately the market has finally opened up, and in mid tower designs these days we can find cases that aren't going to break the bank and come very well equipped. It used to be that $100 might get you an Antec 900 case, and with that you got some cool hard drive cages and a bunch of airflow. The internal layout was very simplistic, wasn't painted, and your ears took a hammering from the noise level that come from inside the case. I really like the fact that manufacturers are realizing that buyers don't have a ton of expendable cash, and are actually trying to offer us some lower dollar products that still offer variations on things found in the much more expensive cases on the market. Whether you are in the need for a LAN case that isn't going to take up a bunch of room, or if you just don't need all the room a full tower offers in your office, we already know Thermaltake made big waves with the earlier releases in the Element series of cases. This is sort of a cross between an Antec 900 and all the finer points found in the various Element cases. Thermaltake just didn't stop there with this chassis, though. Not only does this new design carry USB 3.0 connectivity and a lot of tool -less features, it is fully painted inside and out, designed well, and offers a huge bonus."

Thermaltake Level 10 GT Case Review
     Sat, Apr 23 2011 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Level 10 for the masses? I'm sure that's what Thermaltake had in mind when designing the Level 10 GT chassis. Available now for a bit less than $300 US, the Level 10 GT has a much more attractive price, but only when compared to the original Level 10 chassis."
