Lian Li PC-Q33
     Tue, Apr 07 2015 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When a builder is contemplating a mini-ITX system the primary driver is going to be the size. It’s incredible that we've reached the point where we can have a powerful single-GPU system with minimal (if any) tradeoffs from the tiny mITX form-factor, but the components need to be housed in an appropriately small enclosure or the entire purpose is defeated. However working within small enclosures is often more difficult, unless the enclosure has been specifically designed to account for this. Certainly no slouch in the design department, Lian Li is no stranger to small, lightweight mini-ITX designs like this. The NCASE M1 (a personal favorite) was manufactured by the company after all, and in some ways the PC-Q33 is reminiscent of that design - in build quality and materials if nothing else. The Q33 features aluminum construction and is very light, and while compact the design of the enclosure allows for effortless component installation. The secret? A hinged design that allows the front of the enclosure to swing down providing full access to the interior.

Cooler Master Silencio 652S Mid Tower Chassis Review
     Mon, Apr 06 2015 | 2:19P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Computer chassis are one of the few very subjective pieces of a computer system. What one person likes another may not. With that being said, today I have the pleasure of taking a look at the Cooler Master Silencio 652S. As they say, silence is golden so Cooler Master has put some effort into insulating the Silencio 652S. Each of the panels have a sound dampening material pair with it to kill the sound. Read on to see how this case handles our system build!

Cooler Master Octane M35 and MB7C review
     Mon, Apr 06 2015 | 2:16P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Being a gamer is not necessarily cheap. If you want to do it on a console, it is going to cost you a few hundred on the latest system and then at least another triple digit figure to get all the controllers, games and accessories. While gaming PCs are a lot more bang for buck these days, their peripherals can cost even more, with some gaming mice and keyboards setting you back over £100 each. Not so in the case of the Octane set from Cooler Master which hopes to make gaming peripherals affordable for everyone. But as always, the question is, does a price drop mean the quality suffers?

Orange Horizon
     Mon, Apr 06 2015 | 2:15P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have easynator's “Orange Horizon” build. Here is what he had to say about it, "This will be my first build, even if I've been working in IT for more than 20 years. I don't have a lot of time nor the tools but I'm really looking forward to successfully complete this build. I already see a few challenges, but guess what, I'm up to it. I'm going to call this build the Project Orange Horizon, a mix of white and orange.

BE QUIET! Silent Base 800 Case Review
     Mon, Apr 06 2015 | 12:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“BE QUIET! decided it was time to try and break into the computer chassis market while staying true to their values of silent computing. While the Silent Base 800 already appears to have the proper design to help reduce noise, the real question is whether this case will be able to offer room for high end computer parts combined with advanced cooling. “

Phanteks Enthoo Evolv Computer Case
     Mon, Apr 06 2015 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As more enthusiasts realize that they don’t need the expansion capabilities of standard ATX motherboards, mATX and mini-ITX systems are exploding in popularity, and we’re seeing some real innovation in small systems case design. Today we have Phanteks’ latest, the Enthoo Evolv ITX case. This case has excellent air flow, a very versatile design, and is perfect for those who want to water-cool their systems: it can accommodate a 240mm radiator and even comes with a bracket for a separate water pump if you want to roll your own. Long graphics cards are no problem, either, and integrated cable management features make a clean build easy. Of course the real proof is building a system in this case, and that’s exactly what Benchmark Reviews will do.

ECS LIVA X Mini PC
     Sun, Apr 05 2015 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The ECS LIVA X surprised me with its small size and completely silent operation. I was able to surf the internet and do work on it very quickly. I enjoyed using it and experienced no problems with browsing the internet, using Office applications, or watching streaming videos on Netflix. Amazon Prime would occasionally lag a little – usually when the HUD would pop up. Boot up and shut down times were very fast – at most 17 seconds to boot. Having the USB ports on the front was very convenient, as was the wireless connectivity options. The LIVA X did run fairly cool, being barely warm to the touch after running all day in a room balanced at 19 °C.”

In Win 703
     Sat, Apr 04 2015 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While making a splash with unique enclosures such as the D-Frame, H-Frame or S-Frame, In Win hasn't contributed anything to the mainstream chassis market in a while. The 70X series is here to change all that, and the 703, a chassis for an affordable 70 US dollars, nails more than just looks - price and performance are spot on as well.

SilverStone Kublai KL05B-Q Case Review
     Thu, Apr 02 2015 | 2:05P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SilverStone is at it again, but this time they are looking to mix things up by venturing into unprecedented areas. Lately, it seems that the competition has shaken the sub-$100 case market, and SilverStone is not willing to stand down. Mostly known for their premium cases and their innovative ideas, SilverStone has taken a different approach this time from their top notch designs and instead released the SilverStone Kublai KL05B-Q Mid-Tower case, which Benchmark Reviews will be taking a look at today.

Fractal Design Core 2300
     Thu, Apr 02 2015 | 12:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Fractal Design Core 2300 sits right in-between the Core 1300 and Core 3300 in the family of enclosures. It essentially offers the same layout and feature set as the Core 3300 for 10 Euro less. But will that result in a better price / performance ratio? We take a close look to find out.

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.
