Zoostorm StormForce Inferno 805 Review
     Thu, Jun 09 2016 | 10:37A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the spotlight today is the Stormforce Inferno 805; a VR-ready computer system designed by Zoostorm. Inferno 805 makes use of the Intel Z170 chipset and therefore takes advantage of the Intel Core i7-6700K. As well as a quad-core processor, Zoostorm has also included 32GB DDR4, NVIDIA’s GTX 980Ti and some M.2 storage to deliver excellent performance for the most demanding of 3D processing tasks.

NZXT Manta mITX Computer Case Review
     Thu, Jun 09 2016 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I have said this before: Beauty and innovation never come cheap, but the NZXT Manta is worth taking the dive for a roomy and non-restricting chassis.

Case Mod Friday: Tt Desk
     Thu, Jun 09 2016 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

"Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have Peter Brands' "Tt Desk" build. Here is what he had to say about it, "Some might know me from my desk-pc builds ‘L3p D3sk’ and 'Cross Desk' or scratch build ‘L3pipe’. I have to admit I'm not really a competitive casemodder, more a passionate liquidcooling enthusiast. But with the Tt P5 and the idea I have as you can see in the banner I just couldn't resist""


Fractal Design Define R5 Review
     Wed, Jun 08 2016 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
About a year ago we tested the Fractal Design Define S case. This ATX case with noise reducing elements provides plenty of space for water-cooling. We were so convinced by this inconspicuous case that it was awarded the OCinside price-tip award. This time we are going to test the Define R5 which was the basis for the Define S but shows some significant differences. Its predecessor Define R4 was already a blockbuster and was often recommended in forums if you were looking for a simple but high-quality case with noise reduction. In our test we are going to show you the differences to the Define S and if the Define R5 can live up to its predecessor.

Razer BlackWidow X Chroma Review
     Mon, Jun 06 2016 | 11:48A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Though released a few months ago, we now manage to have a hands on with the BlackWidow X Chroma, something we are rather excited to see. The key differences over the BlackWidow Chroma, is that the BlackWidow X Chroma(BWXC) has a footprint that is approximately 10% smaller, freeing up some precious desk space, as well as having an attractive exposed metal top plate design. The added bonus is, that the BWXC is £15 cheaper than the standard BlackWidow Chroma.

Posted by: STAFF
The Enermax Thormax Giant arrived Technic3D. The Giant supports E-ATX, ATX, Mini-ITX and Micro-ATX motherboards and have place for 2x 180mm and 2x 140mm Cooling-Fans. We will check this and many more in the following Review."

Thermaltake Core X31 Case Review
     Sun, May 29 2016 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thermaltake introduced their Core X Series back in January at CES. The case that really eclipsed the others out of the series was the Core X71 full tower, but let's face it, most people do not have the need to such a large case. For most of us we want a mid tower that has ample space inside, great cooling support, and looks pretty good. Well look no further as today we have Thermaltake’s Core X31. This mid tower has room inside for long graphics cards and power supplies, two 360 mm radiators, tall CPU coolers and much more. The motto of the Core X Series is “Your Build. Our Core” and Thermaltake really stands behind this as the internal components of the case can be removed if you don’t plan on using them. Let's jump in and see if the Core X31 is the perfect mid tower for you!"

Case Mod Friday: Digital Invasion
     Sat, May 28 2016 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! The mod we have today comes from Simple Modz and is a tribute to the classic game Space Invaders. There are Space Invader hints on both the outside and inside of the case. The system is built inside of the In Win 805 case and Simple Modz added some really cool digital camouflage that really sets the case off!"

Zalman Z9 NEO
     Fri, May 27 2016 | 2:39P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Zalman Z9 NEO aims to offer a diverse and useful feature set and good looks and liquid-cooling compatibility, all at an affordable price. Add the fact that it comes equipped with a whooping 5 (!!) fans and it just got even more interesting, while the choice between a black or white version does not help curb the expectations we have diving into this review.

InWin 303 Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Fri, May 27 2016 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
InWin has quickly become the masters of chassis design, after a string of successes with their high-end and award-winning chassis products over the last couple of years. However, despite their impressive design, the major issue has been price, as InWin’s flagship cases often cost well into the triple digits, but when you’re crafting a huge chassis out of premium grade aluminium and tempered glass, they’re never going to be affordable. InWin is well aware of this fact and now they’re taking a shot at the sub £100 market by ditching the aluminium in favour of steel, but keeping the tempered glass so not to spoil their premium aspirations.

Thermaltake Core P5 Mid-Tower Review
     Thu, May 26 2016 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Great looks, excellent build quality and a killer price tag are just some of the things that make us wonder whether or not the latest Core P5 Open-Air Wall-Mountable Mid-Tower by Thermaltake is what we've all been waiting for.

Thermaltake Lumi Color 256c Review
     Wed, May 25 2016 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Every case mod starts with a design. Most of the designs we use today are somewhat based on lighting of the inner/outer of the case. Whether you are replacing stock fans in the case or building out a liquid cooling loop, you are going to need some kind of illumination to have it all stand out. There are numerous manufacturers …

Case Labs Mercury S8S Review
     Fri, May 20 2016 | 4:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Mercury S8S from Case Labs is basically a short version of the S8. As with all enclosures from Case Labs also this one is individually configurable in their shop and therefore the possibilities of what kind of build you'd like to realize are sheer endless. Water cooled rigs, workstations, file server, you name it, anything can be done with this case.

Anidees AI-06 V2 Silent Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Thu, May 19 2016 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today in the eTeknix office we have the brand new Anidees AI-06 V2 mid-tower chassis, which offers up a big revision of their popular AI-06 model. Taking an already robust chassis, adding in more flexible storage solutions, a card reader, improved cooling support, a larger side panel window (on the relevant model) and more. Today, we have the Silent equipped model, which comes fitted with sound dampening materials on the interior, although windowed and standard solid side panel without noise dampening materials edition are also available.

RIOTORO Prism CR1280
     Wed, May 18 2016 | 4:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”I'll start with what I like about the CR1280. The style - while it doesn't break the standard mold for tower cases, it does have a fresh, clean look, and the large side window does it for me. The layout of the top I/O panel is nice too, with adequate spacing of the USB ports (a typical peeve of mine), the separation of the start and reset buttons (another peeve), and the top-facing angle (no USB drives sticking out to get bent over when you walk by). And then there is the size - the CR1280 can handle an extended ATX (eATX) motherboard, supports liquid cooling and long GPUs, and it has decent hard drive capacity. Speaking of liquid cooling, you have mounting space for a top 360mm radiator, a front 240mm radiator, and a rear 120mm radiator. From a functionality perspective, the absence of optical drive bays really opens the case up. The CR1280 has great airflow and the ability to control the fan speed is a plus. Fan speed control is at the tip of your finger. Need some more cooling, or maybe you want a little more peace and quiet? Just push the button. The grommet size and locations are well planned and contribute greatly to the clean cable management.”
