Thermaltake Core V21 Stackable Micro-ATX Chassis Review
     Tue, Feb 10 2015 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Why have one chassis, when you can have two for twice the price! That’s the motto I’m sticking to for today’s review, because the new chassis from Thermaltake, the Core V21, has a funky trick I would like to show you. Thermaltake are one of the biggest names in the business and they have a rock solid reputation with the enthusiast PC market, thanks in no small part to their efforts in creating some of the most capable chassis products on the market. The Thermaltake chassis range is packed full of feature heavy chassis’, capable of extreme air and water cooling, holding epic amounts of hardware and there’s no shortage of innovative features along the way; hopefully the new Core V21 is no exception.

BitFenix Pandora (Black, Windowed, Icon)
     Mon, Feb 09 2015 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
BitFenix lists a number of variants of its Micro-ATX Pandora case. The basic Core model starts at £80 and rises to £84 if you add a windowed side panel. The regular Pandora has an ICON LCD display on the front and costs £90 with plain side panels or £95 if you go for the windowed version. The model we have here is the Pandora in black with windows and ICON display so it is the most expensive version at £95.

Xigmatek Aquila Micro-ATX Chassis Review
     Mon, Feb 09 2015 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It’s rare we see a Xigmatek chassis roll through the eTeknix office, but it’s certainly always a pleasure when one does. Xigmatek has a good reputation for creating uniquely designed chassis, with good build quality and competitive prices and it looks like they’re above to tick all those boxes once agin. The Aquila is a Micro-ATX cube type chassis, perfect for those who want a big system in a small box; perfect for LAN gaming, a HTPC setup or for those who are just short on space. Cube style chassis are a big hit right now and virtually every major manufacturer has launched a new product in this category over the last couple of years. The biggest, or should that be the smallest, innovation in this part of the market is that the smaller chassis have been crammed full of high-end features that make them very competitive when compared to their mid-tower and even full-tower counterparts; a smaller chassis no longer means smaller performance.

Thermaltake Core V21 Micro-ATX Case Review
     Mon, Feb 09 2015 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Core series by Thermaltake launched with the E-ATX full tower Core V71 last year. Since then, Thermaltake has expanded into the mid-tower (V31, V41, V51) and mini-ITX (V1) form factors. The Core V21 that Benchmark Reviews will take a look at today rounds out Thermaltake’s lineup with their first micro-ATX Core offering. At first glance, the Core V21 shares many design similarities with the other Core chassis. As is true with many things in life, looks can be deceiving as the V21 is the first Core chassis to officially offer a multitude of motherboard orientations. While it arrives in stock format with a horizontal motherboard layout, it can be transformed in a matter of seconds to a traditional or inverted layout. We’ll see how this works as we build a system inside the Core V21 over the next few pages.

Raijintek Metis Mini-ITX Aluminum Chassis Review
     Sun, Feb 08 2015 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Raijintek are one of the hottest components brands right now, they’ve only been on the market a couple of years and they’ve already proven time and time again that they can do great things. Of all the CPU coolers and chassis products I’ve tested from the Raijintek range, every single one of them has been an award winner. They’ve shown that they can make exceptionally well-designed products, with great build quality, premium quality features and still maintain a budget friendly price tag; which obviously makes them very appealing to consumers. The chassis I’m reviewing today is the Metis, a mini-ITX cube style chassis with aluminium construction. There’s a lot of mini-ITX chassis hitting the market over the last couple of years and their demand is still growing thanks to the booming LAN gaming market, as well as the need for sleek HTPC style systems and Steambox style system. The Metis comes in a wide range of colours, giving it a lot of appeal as it’s easy to find one that best suits your taste and to colour match to the rest of your setup, with the added bonus of a luxurious brushed aluminium finish that should look great in any setting.

Fractal Design Kelvin S36 Review
     Sat, Feb 07 2015 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Kelvin S36, Fractal Design has a first all-in-one watercooler in its portfolio. In this case you can get an AiO with 360 millimeter copper radiator and three PWM fans for just 135 Euro. This makes us hope for lots and lots of cooling performance and overall we're more than just curious too see whether Fractal Design is capable of convincing us already with their first product in this market segment.

NZXT S340 Review
     Fri, Feb 06 2015 | 7:07P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At a first glance the S340 from NZXT is one good looking case. The design is very elegant and apart from that this particular case is available in different color combinations. It's quite clear that while developing this case, NZXT have had a strong focus on the design aspect and they wanted to come up with something beautiful. For us this is certainly already reason enough to have a thorough look at this case.

BitFenix Pandora Micro-ATX Chassis With ICON Display Review
     Fri, Feb 06 2015 | 7:06P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
BitFenix has quite the reputation for creating innovative chassis designs, just look at their BitFenix Prodigy, Colossus and Ronin for examples; each has a unique aspect that sets them apart from their competition. BitFenix look set to continue their innovation trend with the release of their new Pandora chassis, a slim mid-tower that really is rather unique in terms of design, but one that comes with an extra the likes we’ve never seen on a consumer chassis before. The Pandora is available in several models, the stock budget model with no side panel window, the stock model with the side panel window, then there’s a very funky edition with an LCD display hidden in the front panel; which is also available in windowed and windowless format. The small display is a simple colour display with a 240 x 320 resolution, which you can apply your own colour images to, giving a unique level of customisation to your system.

be quiet! Silent Base 800 Case
     Fri, Feb 06 2015 | 1:28P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I start this review by simply noting the unique model number of BG001, because for be quiet!, the Silent Base 800 Computer Case is the very first case from be quiet! and the Orange flavor is the very first in the series of three cases from this German computer parts supplier. This new case has hit the ground running and we at Think Computers have been given a distinct privilege to review it, so it's a little historic for us to write on a case that is the very first in a total line of 3 cases as of this review. The BG001 is the Orange version, the BG002 is the Black version, and the BG003 is the Silver version. The accent colors of the case is really the only difference you find which gives you three different color combinations to choose from. The internal rubber colors are black, silver or orange as in the one that we are testing in this review."

Sentey Optimus Plus Mid-Tower Case
     Fri, Feb 06 2015 | 1:09P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This case, the Sentey Optimus Plus, features a large side panel window instead of fan mounts. Additional features include a fan controller, filtered intakes, a dedicated cooling fan for hard drives, and a SD card reader. These features come at an additional premium though when compared to other cases in the same price range. In this Benchmark Reviews article, I will discuss the Optimus Plus in depth and whether or not this is a good mid budget case for your next build.

Noreve iPad Air 2 Protective Cases Review
     Fri, Feb 06 2015 | 1:06P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Depending on our preference, we have plenty of ranges to choose from for the models they have available (iPad Air 2); Noreve can also ship the products wrapped as gifts or give us the possibility to choose a different colour for the interior lining, but an extra fee will be applied.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
