Corsair Carbide SPEC-ALPHA Review
     Mon, Apr 25 2016 | 5:35P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The SPEC-ALPHA first made its appearance at CES 2016 earlier in the year and it attracted lots of attention with its funky and bold styling. SPEC-ALPHA is a mid-tower chassis and is really designed for gamers who want to make an impact – the case has a large Perspex window, a trio of cooling fans (which also include LED lighting) and plenty of space for high-end systems.

Fractal Design Core 500 Case Review
     Mon, Apr 25 2016 | 5:34P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Fractal Design’s Core Series has been very solid. We’ve reviewed quite a few cases from the Core Series and they have proven to be very reliable, loaded with features, and have a very simplistic design. Fractal Design recently released their first mini-ITX case in the Core Series, the Core 500. This case is quite small, but still offers many features you would find in full-size cases. Inside you have room for long graphics cards and normal ATX power supplies up to 310 mm, CPU coolers up to 170 mm tall, six hard drives, and even water cooling support for radiators up to 280 mm! Yet the case remains small and compact. Let’s jump in and see what the Core 500 is all about!"

     Mon, Apr 25 2016 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Castor, Mionix has yet another gaming mouse in its portfolio. This particular model is very compact and therefore most suitable for small hands. Apart from that it features a PixArt ADNS-3310 sensor and a great software.

Aerocool Aero-800 Black Edition Chassis Review
     Mon, Apr 25 2016 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We’ve previously reviewed the Aerocool Aero-1000 White Chassis and liked it. The Aero-1000 chassis got a solid 4.3/5.0 and was also recommended as a great all-rounder. The Aero-1000 is the high end PGS A Series chassis form Aerocool, with the Aero-800 in the middle and the Aero-500 starting the range off.

     Fri, Apr 22 2016 | 1:11P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have SevenSix Mods "Project SEVEN" build. Here is what he had to say about it: I have finished my project "SEVEN". For the time being, I would like to again thank Alphacool International GmbH and Thermaltake Germany for the sponsored hardware. Also another big thank you to Modworkx, Gosumodz and PayFrog Custom for the support of the project. Over 200 hours of planning and work on this project."

The Cougar Archon is an inexpensive mid-tower case with a side window, three 3.5” and three 2.5” bays. Let's take a good look at it.

Fractal Design Define Nano S Review
     Thu, Apr 21 2016 | 11:58A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Almost one year ago the Swedish company Fractal Design presented with the Define S their latest midi tower case. Now they launched the Define Nano S which should be the next step in evolution of their Define series cases. Like the previous model, the new Nano S model is a case capable of housing custom watercooling builds and mini-ITX motherboard. There is a lot of space available for radiators and there are mounts for reservoir and pump.

Datamancer Oaken 60% Keyboard Case @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Apr 21 2016 | 11:56A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the last year to year and a half I’ve been running a tiny 60% keyboard with my LAN rigs to help cut down on how much I carry to and from events and also to open up more space on the small table space you get at events. Its worked so well that I wanted to swap my wife’s keyboard to a 60% as well. To prevent damage to the keyboard in transport I tossed around the idea of getting a sleeve to put it in but then I came across the Oaken 60% keyboard case from Datamancer. The case replaces the case on my wife’s Poker 2 with a custom machined wooden case and it has a matching second half that encloses the entire keyboard for transport. After taking it to a few events over the past few months I wanted to talk a little about the case and its pros and cons. So check it out.

Native Union CLIC 360° iPhone Case Review
     Sun, Apr 17 2016 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"There are so many companies out there who make iPhone cases. Because if this it is really hard to know if I company is actually creating a quality product that is unique. Native Union is a company I’ve really liked so far, I use their JUMP cable on a daily basis. Today we will be taking a look at their CLIC 360° iPhone case which is available for both iPhone 6/6s and iPhone 6 Plus / 6s Plus iPhone models. The CLIC 360° is designed to give your iPhone maximum protection with minimum bulk. It features military grade drop-proof protection, a very unique British Millerain waxed canvas on the back, and screen protection. I have been using the CLIC 360° for about a month now, read on to see what I think about it."

Raidmax Monster II PC Case Review
     Fri, Apr 15 2016 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Raidmax has been producing PC cases for quite some time. I can remember years ago when I first got my hands on a Raidmax case. They were one of the first that had really unique cases and ones that used fans with LEDs in them. Since then many companies have followed suit and there is quite a lot of competition in the case market. Today we have their latest PC Case, the Monster II. This mid tower case supports ATX motherboards, long graphics cards, long power supplies, up to 5 fans, and four hard drives. Like most Raidmax cases the Monster II has a really unique design that makes it stand out. Let’s jump in and see what the Monster II is all about."

NZXT Manta Chassis Review
     Thu, Apr 14 2016 | 5:52P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NZXT has launched a Mini-ITX case called Manta that breaks the rules, defies expectations and looks pretty darned cute into the bargain. Take a look at our video and photos and you will see that all the panels on the Manta are curved. This is a novel styling trick that looks good, gives extra space inside the case for cable management and also helps NZXT to conceal the intake and exhaust vents on the top and front of the case.

Zalman Z9 Neo Case Review
     Thu, Apr 14 2016 | 5:52P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Unlike it’s predecessors in the Z-series line, the Z9 Neo comes with a full length front panel door. Now if your old school, as I am, you probably shutter at the mere mention of a computer case having a door. But over the years, especially with the rise in digital mediums and digital distribution, I find myself using 5.25? drives less and less. So cases with doors have become attractive again, as they are pleasing to the eye and still offer the option of having a couple of 5.25? bay devices at your disposal. In this article, Benchmark Reviews dives in deep to determine if this case is a worthy contender for your money.

Thermaltake Lumi Color 256C Magnetic LED Strip Control Pack
     Thu, Apr 14 2016 | 5:51P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thermaltake is adding to the RGB craze with its own multicolor case LED lighting kit the Lumi Color 256C. Though we’re seen RGB lighting being increasingly used within the past year and a half – now even motherboards and video cards have them, amusingly RGB LED strips for computer cases have been around for much longer. The first NZXT HUE launched nearly four years ago well ahead of the trend, but today we’re looking at Thermaltake’s new head-on challenger.

Corsair Carbide Series 400C Case Review
     Wed, Apr 13 2016 | 4:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in December we took a look at Corsair’s Carbide 600Q case. This larger case was one of the first Corsair had launched in a very long time. Corsair offered it in the “Q” (quiet) version, which we reviewed, and a “C” (clear) version that had an awesome clear side panel. At CES in January Corsair showed us another new case that was part of the Carbide Series, which was the 400. It also is available in Q/C versions. The biggest change with this case is that it is more compact, there are no optical drive bays and less room inside. But you still have room for long graphics cards, watercooling, 5 hard drives, and it even has a power supply cover. Being a smaller case Corsair has priced this case at only $99, so it sits with many entry-level cases in that price range. Today we are going to be checking out the 400C which features that awesome clear side panel so you can show off your hardware inside. Let’s see if Corsair has another winner in this case!"
