Raijintek Metis Mini-ITX Aluminum Chassis Review
     Thu, Jan 29 2015 | 9:00A | 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.

Phanteks Enthoo Mini XL Chassis Review
     Wed, Jan 28 2015 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Phanteks has taken a bold step with its new Enthoo Mini XL case as we are seeing the introduction of a new form factor called Super Micro ATX. The idea is that you can install two motherboards inside the case along with their power supplies, processors and all the other hardware you need to run two PCs simultaneously inside a common chassis.

Nanoxia Deep Silence 4 mATX/mITX PC Case Review
     Tue, Jan 27 2015 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
How would you reply to a very good friend if he asked your opinion about which is the best mATX compatible PC case in the market currently? Obviously i can't speak on your behalf but when a good friend asked this of me roughly a week ago i honestly didn't know what to tell him since i doubt there's a perfect one out there. So instead of answering his question i asked him what he thought was the most important feature/aspect for his dream mATX case. Of course we all know how hard it is to choose a PC case based on a single thing but everything has to start from someplace. So after discussing this for a while over a cup of coffee he decided that he wanted a high quality and virtually noiseless mATX tower which he could also use in his bedroom during the night without worrying about waking up by it. With that in mind my answer was very clear and actually had to do with today’s review of the Deep Silence 4 mITX/mATX PC Case by Nanoxia.

Thermaltake Core X1 Mini-ITX Case Review
     Mon, Jan 26 2015 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thermaltake’s Core V Series has been extremely popular, especially with their latest Core V21 and Core V1 cases. It is time for a new Core series, which has launched today with three cases. Each case has a cube-like design and they are made to be builders cases, which means they are very easy to work in, have interchangeable parts, have lots of air are water cooling options, and fit some of the largest components possible. The Core X series starts with the Mini-ITX Core X1, then moves up to the Micro-ATX Core X2, and finally finishes off with the big-boy Core X9 that supports E-ATX motherboards. Today we will be taking a look at the Core X1, it has room inside for 4 hard drives, a mini-ITX motherboard, 3-slot full-size graphics card, CPU coolers up to 200 mm and a full-size ATX power supply. Let’s get started!"

Lian Li PC-T80 Modular Test Bench Chassis Review
     Mon, Jan 26 2015 | 2:49P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Test benches are a vital part of the work we do here at eTeknix. They’re used for our motherboard, processor, CPU cooler, graphics card, hard drive reviews and no doubt many other components we’ve reviewed have been hooked up to a system on one of our test benches. Of course, we’re not the only people in the world with need of a good quality test bench, as there are many professional industries and enthusiast users that need easy access to their components for everything from product testing and design, through to overclocking and modding. With all that in mind, having a modular test bench that is capable of many different tasks can be a huge boost to your productivity and with Lian Li having already created some of the best test benches in the business, we’re eager to see what their latest one is capable of.

In Win D-Frame Mini Case Review – The Coolest Lanbox on The Block
     Mon, Jan 26 2015 | 2:49P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past few years In Win has established a reputation for making some of the most well built cases available. With entries such as the 904, the S-Frame and the original D-Frame, which like most In Win cases, was very well built! It had sharp lines and had craftsmanship that is unheard of from most other chassis manufacturers. Today we have newest addition to In Win’s lineup the D-Frame Mini which is a smaller mini-ITX version of the original and lighter on your wallet. The D-Frame Mini is retailing at $290 at time of writing.

Corsair Graphite Series 380T
     Mon, Jan 26 2015 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The market for Mini-ITX based LAN rigs has grown a lot over the past few years. This is both because people are realizing that you can get the same performance out of a small rig as a big one and also because companies are finally starting to produce the products we always needed to really go all out with our SFF builds. Corsair is one of those companies, they have introduced a few different Mini-ITX cases but the introduction of their 380T from their Graphite Series really caught my eye. For one they have been toying with the idea of bringing out a whole bunch of eye catching colored versions of the 380T. But additionally they put together a design that is easy to carry with a handle but it also has a large window inside. That means you can get it to LANs and also show off what is inside. That is having your cake and getting to eat it too.

Aerocool Strike X-Cube Review
     Sun, Jan 25 2015 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Strike X-Cube is the latest case from Aerocool, which in this case features a compact form factor as well as space for mATX as well as miniITX motherboards. Despite its compact dimensions, there is actually enough space for small high-end gaming systems and therefore it might be a case that offers some rather interesting options. Apart from the fact, that there is space for high-end graphics cards you'll also be able to install an all-in-on watercooler.

nteks Enthoo Luxe Full Tower Computer Case Review
     Sun, Jan 25 2015 | 12:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
: Phanteks is a company that has been around since 2007, but how many have heard of them. As of lately I would said a lot more. When some engineers and a design team paired up they set out to create the best cooling systems. With four cases under their belt, including the Enthoo Luxe, Phanteks have come into battle hard for their share of the computer case sales.

Case Mod Friday: Red Dragon @ ThinkComputers.org

Fractal Design Core 3300
     Sat, Jan 24 2015 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"To conclude, Fractal Design has made another chassis that holds its own in many ways. Even with a few set backs, I would recommend this chassis to anyone who is looking to get a few features that may be only available in a high tier / price range. For the rest, who aren't completely sold on the Core series, Fractal Design does offer the XL I reviewed last year along with the other chassis at similar prices.”

Thermaltake Urban T81
     Sat, Jan 24 2015 | 12:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Urban T81 has a ton of great features and reasons that this chassis is worth every penny. I don't have time to write out each in detail or this would go on forever, so I'm just going to cover the things that make it stand out. First up, having support for nearly every aftermarket CPU cooler is a major advantage. I have time and time again given advice for purchasing a cooler, only to find out that a height limit is an issue. At 185mm and a good amount of surrounding space, there isn't much that will not fit. Going along with the CPU cooler; having space up to 360mm without removing a hard drive cage is insane! I also expect Quad X-Fire or SLI to not be a problem at all, considering the huge amount of airflow generously provided by two 200mm fans in front.”

"The NZXT S340 is the best budget case to come along in years. It's a true bang-for-the-buck product that has features you'd expect from much more expensive cases. It looks outstanding, has plenty of room to work, excellent cable management, space for 120-280mm radiators, awesome cooling potential and so much more. " ~3dGameMan.com

Fractal Design Define R5 Review
     Sat, Jan 24 2015 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Almost exactly four years ago the Swedish company Fractal Design presented with the Define R3 their first midi tower. Now they launched the Define R5 which should be the next step in evolution of their Define series cases. Like the previous model, the new R5 uses sound-absorbing material and a well thought tool-less system. The Define R5 is a case suitable for ATX motherboards and there are quite a interesting features to this case.
