Streacom FC5 Alpha Fanless Chassis Review
     Thu, Oct 29 2015 | 4:14P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The FC5A case from Streacom has a super thin and slick design, offering a completely silent system for daily work but much better to get integrated in your home cinema systems. Has a highly professional look so it can be placed in any living room.

Cougar QBX Review
     Thu, Oct 29 2015 | 4:13P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The QBX from Cougar appears to be a rather interesting mini-ITX case. Despite the small size it offers plenty of space and flexibility on the inside, which means you can install high-end graphics cards as well as an ATX supplies - according to the specs. Therefore this small cube could be perfectly suitable for HTPC builds and apart from that you could even create a very small LAN party rig. Last but not least also the price is very interesting as well.

Silverstone Raven X (RVX01) Case Review
     Thu, Oct 29 2015 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Silverstone first caught our attention with beautiful HTPC cases such as the LC13B-E, but it really landed on our radar with the $180, 90-degree stacked design Raven 2 Evolution (RV02-E). Delivering a new iteration, the Raven X RVX01 is only $80 but the company promises it will offer flagship level cooling performance, ample drive space and full size component compatibility.

SilverStone Fortress FTZ01 Mini-ITX Case Review
     Fri, Oct 23 2015 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Generally, a few months after the Raven version is released, a premium Fortress version – sporting clean lines and a few tweaks here and there – will follow. This was the case with the RV01/FT01, RV02/FT02…well, you get the idea. When SilverStone released their first ITX Raven case – the RVZ01 – it was only a matter of time before the Fortress variant emerged. The RVZ01 was a unique chassis even by Raven standards; how would the FTZ01 manage to maintain that premium Fortress look and feel? Well, wrap it in a unibody aluminum exterior for starters. Follow along with Benchmark Reviews as we see what else has changed in the SilverStone Fortress FTZ01.

Best Computer Cases of 2015
     Fri, Oct 23 2015 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There was a time when computer cases were seen as nothing more than the housing for your PC. Then things started to get interesting; cases got better, flashier and more functional. Here are the highest regarded cases in each category: best overall, Mini-ITX, micro ATX, HTPC, budget and top concept case.

Streacom F12C HTPC-Case Review
     Thu, Oct 22 2015 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Streacom F12C arrived Technic3D. The F12C supports ATX, Mini-ITX and Micro-ATX motherboards and have place for 5x 140mm Cooling-Fans. We will check this and many more in the following Review."

Rosewill B2 Spirit Full Tower Case Review
     Tue, Oct 20 2015 | 12:57P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we will be taking a look at the Rosewill B2 Spirit, a full tower case that can be purchased at their main etailer, Newegg for $139.99 after a $30 rebate and free shipping. This new full tower case boasts many features that those wanting a full tower demand.

Raijintek Styx Review
     Tue, Oct 20 2015 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Styx, Raijintek has a new mATX case in its portfolio, which is made from aluminium as well as steel. Apart from that, this case is very compact but it still offers enough space to install high-end gaming graphics cards as well as coolers whic measure up to 180 millimeter in height. In addition the chassis can be equipped with a number of HDDs and SSDs.

HBT+ Shield 700 Case Review
     Tue, Oct 20 2015 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this review I’ll be looking at the HBT Shield 700 which is another case based on the same chassis used on the Turbine 700 with a more conservative styling and a few subtitle differences.

Bitfenix Aegis Mid-tower Case Review
     Mon, Oct 19 2015 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Bitfenix Aegis is a really nice mid-tower case that has just a little bit of flashiness with multiple color options. The case is designed with a custom water loop in mind, but with the flexibility to install just about anything you want."

Rosewill Viper Z Mid-Tower ATX Case Review
     Mon, Oct 19 2015 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ATX case market is extremely competitive right now, so Rosewill will have to truly make an impression with their Viper Z for it to be considered a viable contender. With Rosewill tagging the Viper Z as a “ferocious warfare machine” and then including a windowed side panel and blue LED fans, this is obviously a case targeted towards PC gaming enthusiasts...

Case Mod Friday: MAXXPlanck V2
     Sun, Oct 18 2015 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have Show4Pro's “MAXXPlanck V2” build. Here is what he had to say about it, "Its been a while (1.5 yrs) since I updated my computer. I thought about upgrading to the next gen i7 (I'm still rocking the bloomfield), but didn't really see the need for a faster processor. Thought about getting the new Corsair 900D to replace my 8 year old Super Armor, but wanted to do something different.. something unique. While browsing Battlestations on Reddit for ideas, I came across a very simple yet elegant looking wall mounted computer, and that is where this whole project began.""

Chieftec DX-02B Full-Tower Chassis Review
     Sat, Oct 17 2015 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Chieftec used to be one of the biggest names in the UK chassis market, but a snag in their distribution efforts meant the company had to pull out of the market for a few years. This isn’t to say they failed, as the company has being going strong ever since in global markets, but this year marks their return to the UK and to celebrate we’ve decided to grab hold of one of their current popular chassis to see what all the fuss is about. Now some of you may know already that the DX-02B full-tower that we have here today isn’t a new product, it has been on the market for a year or two now, albeit not in the UK until now. So while this may not be their latest and greatest, it should get the ball rolling and you can expect even more great Chieftec reviews from us in the coming weeks and months.

SilverStone PT13 Ultra Compact Mini-ITX Thin Chassis Review
     Fri, Oct 16 2015 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to small form factor PC chassis Silverstone is a dominating force in the market, they have a huge range of small form factor PC cases and even when you’re looking at mATX and mini-ITX chassis products, they’ve proven time and time again that they can cram an impressive level of hardware into insanely small spaces. The chassis we’re looking at today is specifically designed for slim components such as mini-ITX Slim motherboard, which feature a low clearance components such as SODIMM memory to help the board squeeze into compact chassis solutions. The PT13 is an ultra compact case designed specifically for Thin Mini-ITX boards, these are often targeted at those who need a compact system for office solutions, digital signage, HTPC’s or just anyone who needs to save space. The compact size of this case means it can easily fit into a home entertainment setup laid flat, via its included vertical mount, or it can even be mounted on the back of a VESA compatible monitor. The compact size of just 1.4 liters also means it’s easy to transport, so unhooking the cables and putting it in a bag or the boot of your car is easy to achieve.

BitFenix Neos Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Fri, Oct 16 2015 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
BitFenix are one of the coolest names around when it comes to PC cases, their Prodigy, Phenom and Colossus have already proven a smash hit with the gaming community, but they’ve all got one slight problem in common – they’re all a little on the expensive side for your average consumer. BitFenix clearly don’t want to alienate the largest part of the market and their new Neos mid-tower represents what BitFenix can do for those on a tighter budget, without sacrificing the style and feature sets we’ve come to expect from such an established brand. Priced at just £30 (plus shipping if you’re ordering online) the Neos is certainly wallet friendly, but just how much you’re going to get back for your money remains to be seen. There are already a few very competitive chassis on the market at this price range from Cooler Master, Cougar, Antec, even a few older NZXT ones that aren’t too bad either, so I’m eager to see how a budget model from BitFenix compares to the rest of the market, and more importantly what they’ve done to make their product stand out from the crowd, as there are often very few differences in terms of specifications at this price range.

NZXT S340 Razer Special Edition Review
     Thu, Oct 15 2015 | 5:11P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Listen up American readers as we tell you about the NZXT S340 Razer Special Edition. Brits and Europeans will instead have to accept the somewhat obscure ‘NZXT S340 Special Edition’ naming, which is apparently something to do with licensing rights to the Razer name. Yes, we didn’t leave ‘Razer’ out of the review page title by accident, we were politely asked if we could omit it, as we are predominately a UK publication. Stranger things have happened, but not by much.
