eSports COMMANDER Gaming Gear Combo Review
     Mon, Dec 28 2015 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In recent months TT eSports have been making strides to woo the gamer on a budget. Last time around KitGuru looked at their Challenger Prime keyboard, and it did well considering its low price. Can the COMMANDER mouse/keyboard combo live up to expectations?

AZZA Zen 8100
     Sun, Dec 27 2015 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”Onwards! Alright, it's not often I don't have much on the negative side to say. AZZA has a few minor flaws for an overall decent chassis, one of which is the fans. Having fans with a fixed speed is great for some quiet operations, but it doesn't help with a loaded case, as only so much unwanted hot air can be pushed out. An easy fix for AZZA would be to have them as 3-pin fans instead of being powered by 4-pin Molex cable. Any modern computer has a bunch of fan connectors on the motherboard, so it seems counter productive to force the consumer to use a bulky power connector.”

ElementPC Millennium Gladiator Review
     Sat, Dec 26 2015 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the spotlight today is the Millennium Gladiator which is touted as a mid-range computer system based around Intel’s Haswell Refresh – Core i5-4690K and Intel Z97. Bolstering the 3D performance, this machine uses NVIDIA’s GTX 970 which, as we’ve seen in the past will undoubtedly offer great performance in any of today’s triple-a titles.

NZXT H440 New Edition Review
     Sat, Dec 26 2015 | 12:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NZXT has updated its enthusiast H440 case. This new version goes by the unimaginative name ‘H440 New Edition’ however the list of changes from the original H440 is very encouraging: All black matte colour, Scratch resistant paintwork, Tinted black window (with optional no window version), Increased height & depth with ventilation increase in size for better airflow, 8-way PWM Fan hub (all fans controlled by master pin header) to maximise airflow efficiency with low noise.

Corsair Carbide Quiet 600Q Chassis Review
     Fri, Dec 25 2015 | 4:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair may have been a little quiet in terms of chassis releases recently, but it’s because they’ve been busy cooking up something big! Their new chassis, the Corsair Carbide 600Q is designed for high-end systems and comes packed full of features that are sure to put a smile on any system builders face. With a focus on compatibility for high-end components, which are often quite large, without making a compromise on style or acoustic performance; we’re eager to take a closer look at what the latest from Corsair has to offer.

NZXT HUE+ Advanced PC Illumination Kit Review
     Tue, Dec 22 2015 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Tired of not having enough customisation when it comes to your chassis’ lighting sceme? Sure you can buy a few LED strips, but they’re often fixed with a single colour and changing them can be as complex as buying a whole new kit and re-installing it all, just to go from blue to red. The same goes for LED fans, they’re often single colour, many can’t be turned on or off and their colours are fixed. NZXT have the solution with their HUE+ RGB lighting kit, as it gives you control over each lighting strip/zone within your system right from your desktop, allowing you to endlessly customise it as often as you like and with minimal effort!

Akasa Max S Passive Cooled Max S NUC Chassis Review
     Tue, Dec 22 2015 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We’re back once again with another entry in the NUC chassis series from Akasa, but this one, like the others we’ve previously seen has a neat trick at its disposal that makes it stand out from the crowd. The Akasa MAX MT and the Plato X both won awards from us recently and for good reason too, they’re both exceptional products full of innovative and practical features, so we’re hoping to see a similar performance from the Max S.

Case Mod Friday: TriStellar Whetstone

Posted by: STAFF
"Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have alain-s's “TriStellar Whetstone” build. Which has to be one of the best DeepCool TriStellar mods that we've seen so far! Here is what they had to say about it, "Hello guys, Time start a new project. I hope you all will have as much fun as I will have.""

Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX Case Review
     Mon, Dec 21 2015 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"You probably wouldn’t believe it, but the case we’re about to take a look at comes from a company that has only been in the PC case game since 2013. Formed in 2007 with PC cooling as their target market, Phanteks has only been dropping bombs on the hardware market since 2011 with their superbly performing CPU coolers. They soon followed their CPU coolers and fans with some of the best cases we have seen. Based on the mantra that “no job is impossible” and listening closely to what builders and modders want, Phanteks has been stunning us with cases that truly deliver exactly what we need time after time. Considering how long they have been designing and producing cases it’s astonishing just how many models they have. With such meteoric success I have to wonder if there is going to be a point when they miss? Can Phanteks truly keep making cases that are unique and nearly perfectly suited to our needs? Read along as we find out if today is the day Phanteks slips or shines with one of the newest models in one of their most popular lines, the Evolv ATX mid tower case."

BitFenix Nova Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Sat, Dec 19 2015 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
BitFenix is back again, this time with their lovely Nova chassis. The Nova is BitFenix’s latest effort from the budget-friendly end of the market, promising great features at a price that is sure to leave your wallet or your bank balance happy. If you’re not trying to cram huge amounts of hard drives, multiple radiators and more into your system, then it is unlikely that you need much more than what the Nova offers and we’re eager to see just how much you get for your money here.

Phanteks Enthoo Evolv Galaxy Silver Case Review
     Sat, Dec 19 2015 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX is a beautiful aluminum case with lots of water cooling flexibility. It includes great features like the innovated radiator bracket, support for Phanteks modular 3.5? HDD brackets, and swivel side panels to complement the elegant 3mm thick aluminum exterior. The interior frame looks almost identical to the Enthoo Pro M due to the 2.5? drop-N-lock mounts behind the motherboard tray and on the power supply chamber and the lack of interior HDD cages. Built specifically to target water cooling enthusiasts, the top and front of the case can support up to a 360mm or a 280mm radiator with plenty of space for a large reservoir. At Benchmark Reviews, we will be taking a look at the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX case in Galaxy Silver. Let’s go ahead and go through a quick overview of the case.

Corsair Carbide 600C
     Wed, Dec 16 2015 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”The Corsair Carbide 600C takes things down a different path with the inverse-ATX design. Initially, it took a moment to sink in, but this is something that has grown on me now that I have spent some time with it. The Carbide 600C is the latest addition to the Carbide Series. Corsair concentrated on a case design that delivered ultimate silence with the 600Q and ultimate style with the 600C - both without sacrificing ultimate performace. And I believe the company has hit its mark. From the outside, the 600C is not flashy or loud; it is much more conservative and unassuming. The aesthetics are clean and refined. While many cases have tops that are fully vented with an array of mounting provisions for fans and radiators, the 600C has a solid top (for sound control), yet still retains the ability to support several fans and radiators within the case.”

Corsair Carbide 600C Inverse ATX PC Case Review
     Tue, Dec 15 2015 | 4:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are actually many variations of the Carbide cases outside of this newest model. Some are more budget friendly while others are smaller form factors or high air flow models. The new 600C/600Q cases are the top tier models in the Carbide lineup and are mid-tower sized and are geared towards those who typically have components that demand the extra space such as high-end graphics cards and water cooling. There are two variations of this with the 600C having the clear acrylic window in the side panel and the 600Q which skips the window in favor of sound dampening panel. Obviously, the clear 600C version caters to the bling crowd who like to show off their rigs and the quiet 600Q will woo those with a desire for low noise while providing ample cooling. We received the 600C version to check out.

Corsair Carbide Series 600Q Case Review
     Tue, Dec 15 2015 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It has been quite a while since we’ve seen a major case release from Corsair. They have been focusing heavily on their all-in-one liquid CPU coolers, gaming products and power supplies, but they haven’t forgot about cases. Today we will be taking a look at a brand new case from Corsair that has elegant minimalist design on the outside, but inside it is anything but that. This is the first case from Corsair that I know of that will feature an inverted-ATX layout. On top of that inside you have plenty of room for storage, watercooling and even a power supply shroud that keeps everything inside looking nice. Corsair will be releasing two versions of this case, a 600C which features a clear side panel to show off your gear inside and a 600Q (which we are reviewing) that has sound-dampening properties and normal side panels. Let’s see what Corsair’s new case is all about!"

Corsair Carbide 600C Review
     Mon, Dec 14 2015 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair Carbide 600C (Clear) or Q (Quiet) adopts a novel design that effectively turns your PC 'upside down'. The easiest way to understand what Corsair has done is to look at our photos and watch the video where you will see the motherboard mounts on the 'wrong' side of the case and upside down to boot.
