Moneual MonCaso Sonamu G100 Case Review
     Fri, May 27 2011 | 5:50P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The MonCaso Sonamu G100 is a small form factor (SFF) case from Moneual, which comes with a 350 W power supply and promises zero consumption when in standby mode, thanks to a relay that completely removes the power supply from the power grid when the computer is turned off. Therefore, this case is sold as having an "environmental-friendly design." The problem, however, is that the manufacturer decided to use one of the worst power supplies available on the market, the Logisys PS350MA, which presents efficiency below 80%, thus creating a big contradiction. Read on."

In-Win BUC PC Gaming Case Review
     Fri, May 27 2011 | 4:27P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The In Win BUC gaming chassis is a very well built steel computer case that has a simple layout and feel, yet the case still offers a variety of useful features normally found on more expensive cases. Having features like the "EZ-swap" or Hot-Swap storage drive bays with a lockable door, SuperSpeed USB 3.0, the convenient utility tray on top that gives you a place to easily connect headsets, cameras, smartphones and external storage drive or even the fantastic build quality is something you usually can't find in a case that is $89.99 after rebate. If you like the "shield" appearance of the BUC then..."

Thermaltake Level 10 GT Chassis
     Fri, May 27 2011 | 4:25P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Thermaltake Level 10 GT is yet another case that I had the opportunity to preview at CES 2011. The Level 10 GT is a follow-up to the original Level 10 that garnered a ton of press from CES 2010. The goal with this new version is to bring the style of the original Level 10 case to a much more reasonable price point. The original had an asking price around $800 - more than some users spend on an entire system!"

Coolermaster Silencio 550: The Virtues of Silence
     Thu, May 26 2011 | 2:58P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

With the introduction of the Silencio 550, Cooler Master ushers in a new era of silent towers by creatively combining smooth styling, strength, and stealth. A true marvel enveloped in a sleek black steel case, it holds the capacity to support the most elaborate computing configurations. The front panel adorns a mirrored high-gloss finish which speaks to the class and elegance only embraced by Cooler Master products.



Quiet Operation

Paramount to the Silencio 550, as the name suggests, are the barely audible tones at which it runs. Sound silencing foam padding deadens the slight reverberations of the fans and the whirrs and clicks of hard drives. Combine this with a solid-steel frame, rubber feet, two Cooler Master quiet-spinning fans and this chassis nearly sheds all forms of noise. It makes it the perfect tower for those who value a quiet computing environment.


Intelligent Interior

Within the Silencio 550s simply elegant exterior lays a clean, intuitive, and spacious interior. Three 5.25", seven 3.5", one 2.5" hard drive bays are set inside a solid steel frame. An easily-removable hard drive cage allows computer aficionados to mix and match various hard drives for maximum flexibility and drive space. Lying behind the front panel is an external hot-swappable drive dock for those quick changes on-the-fly. This slot, along with lightning-quick, backwards-compatible USB 3.0 ports and a versatile SD card reader provides the users with a veritable holy trinity of data connectivity options. A surprisingly efficient intake-exhaust cooling system throughout the interior provides for maximum airflow. Should users want to utilize liquid cooling alternatives, the Silencio 550 includes rear retaining holes for an optional water cooling radiator installation. Abundant cooling options, ingenuity, aesthetics, and a reasonable price make this chassis the perfect silent partner for any enthusiast.

Cooler Master CM Storm Enforcer Case Review
     Mon, May 23 2011 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Cooler Master’s CM Storm line is geared towards gamers and rightfully so. The line is made up of cases, gaming peripherals, gaming surfaces, and notebook coolers. For some reason we here at ThinkComputers have not had a chance to take a look at any of the CM Storm cases. Today however we will get that chance with the recently released CM Storm Enforcer case. This case has a mean look to it hence the name Enforcer. It also features USB 3.0 connectivity, room for 2.5-inch drives and great cable management. Let’s check it out!"

In Win BUC Gaming Computer Chassis
     Sun, May 22 2011 | 4:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In Win shows no signs of stopping either, as they have recently released another gaming case. The new BUC has very little similarity in terms of the looks of the two Dragon models mentioned, but nevertheless a look we feel a lot of gamers and enthusiasts will be drawn to. Being bigger than the Slayer but smaller than the Rider, the BUC offers several tool-less features and plenty room to build a nice gaming rig within.

Lian Li WB-01 Metal Wheel Kit Review
     Sun, May 22 2011 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Everytime I go to a LAN party, I get asked the same question: "Where did you get wheels for your case?". You see, my favorite case is one I've had for several years, the Lian Li V-1000 (click to see a shot of this wheeled case), which comes with great-looking aluminum metal casters. My response is that these wheels came with the case. Now I've found that you can buy these Lian Li WB-01 Metal Case wheels seperately, and install them onto any PC case. The WB-01 wheel kit comes with a front and back set of wheels, rubber wheel covers (aka "tires"), and a bag of screws and nuts. The two wheel sets are secured to a mounting base with a full-length axle, and the base has four pre-drilled screw holes. The back set of wheels has a pull-out brake lever which prevents a square peg at the center of the axle from moving, thus preventing movement. The lever is designed to move the square peg if not already in proper alignment, which prevents any possible jamming.

     Sat, May 21 2011 | 12:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Fractal Design Define XL Full Tower Computer Case is the flagship offering into the U.S. market from the Swedish based manufacturer.

     Fri, May 20 2011 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The L-900 V.REX F8 ("F8" means that the case supports eight fans) is the latest addition to 3R System's V.REX series of mid-tower cases. It is a basic entry-level case, with a very basic look and being the first model from this brand that we've reviewed that doesn't come with a plastic piece on its top panel featuring fans, fan controllers, and USB ports."

BitFenix Colossus Window Full Tower Chassis Review
     Fri, May 20 2011 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"August of last year I was awe struck by my first submission from BitFenix. The original Colossus may have been referred to as the lava lamp of cases, but I for one was sold on the concept. That version of the chassis had lighting on the front door as well as both sides. This lighting scheme was very unique mixed in along with the Softouch exterior coating and black steel panels. The version of the Colossus I received was the all black version with optional blue or red LED lighting, with the controls hidden in a lockable front storage tray. On top of that, I haven't even gotten to the wire management on the front of the chassis or the tool-free interior. One thing I really like about BitFenix is they aren't too proud to ask for help or take great ideas and try to implement these into their chassis'. I remember when this idea was sparked, and I was even privy to seeing some of the window design ideas long before now, and they were interested in my input. This along with comments on forums and their dedication to Facebook advertising and input from those who follow, help BitFenix give the customer exactly what they are looking for."

Thermaltake Armor A30 Case Review
     Wed, May 18 2011 | 2:24P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Thermaltake A30 is clearly targeted at gamers if not LAN party enthusiasts directly. The all black SFF design does little to hide the modular chassis' ability to hold a full size build with only the micro/mini ATX motherboard limiting the options.
