Phanteks Enthoo Pro M Review
     Fri, Jul 31 2015 | 3:06P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Enthoo Pro M, Phanteks has a case for ATX and E-ATX motherboards in its portfolio, which comes with a lot of features and at a very competitive price. Apart from that especially frieds of custom watercooling loops will love this case, since it offers a lot of flexibility in that direction. For now, we're really curious to find out how this case is going to do in our review.

Fractal Design Node 202
     Fri, Jul 31 2015 | 12:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fractal Design offers its new Mini-ITX Node 202 either as a bare case or paired with its Integra SFX 450W PSU. When you consider how few SFX PSUs there are on the market it probably makes sense to go for the combo package, if only to save yourself hassle.

Phanteks Enthoo Pro M Case Review
     Fri, Jul 31 2015 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Phanteks Enthoo Pro M has a few similarities from both the Enthoo Pro and the Evolv ATX case but in a mid-tower form factor. The front of the case includes just one 5.25? ODD bay and a large air intake similar to the Enthoo Pro. The interior frame looks almost identical to the Evolv ATX due to the 2.5? drop-N-lock mounts and the lack of interior HDD bays. 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.

Antec S10 Full-Tower Chassis Review
     Thu, Jul 30 2015 | 4:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Antec, one of the most historic names in the chassis business, are set to take back the enthusiast market this year with the release of their new flagship chassis, the S10. The new chassis comes with a hefty price tag, an eyewatering $499/£399.99, which is a lot of money, no matter which way you look at it. Of course, the likes of InWin, Lian Li, Silverstone and Coolermaster, to name but a few, have proven that you can command these extreme price tags, so long as you deliver the quality and features to justify it.

Bitfenix Alchemy Stripe LED Magnetic Review
     Thu, Jul 30 2015 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Bitfenix is not only a case manufacturer, the company also sells fans and power supplies as well as a selection of modding products. Today we're going to have a close look at the Alchemy 2.0 LED strips, which feature practical magnets for simple installation.

Keycool Hero 84 @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Jul 29 2015 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While I have been a huge fan of TenKeyLess keyboards, for those who don’t have a lot of desktop space and especially for LANs. I recently jumped into smaller form factors, I took a look at the 60% Infinity and even bought a Poker 2 as well for my personal collection. I love the 60% boards but if you are used to a TKL you might miss a few things. For me it is the direction pad. Well because of that I had my eye on an interesting keyboard from Keycool called the Hero 84 that pack most of the keys that you get on a TKL into a smaller format, similar to the 60% keyboards. Well Massdrop was nice enough to help get a sample from Keycool and I have been using it off and on for nearly a month in between our other keyboard reviews. Today I can finally sit down and recap how it has performed and go into detail on what the Hero 84 is all about.

Phanteks EVOLV ATX Aluminum Case Review
     Tue, Jul 28 2015 | 6:08P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"There is no question that the EVOLV ATX is a worthy addition to what is arguably the best mainstream case lineup on the market. With minimalist styling, aluminum panels and a huge side window, the EVOLV ATX is incredibly sleek looking, while allowing for all types of dressing and modification. Internally, the EVOLVE ATX offers a plethora of layout options and flexibility thanks to outstanding design and engineering."

Raidmax Narwhal Review
     Tue, Jul 28 2015 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Narwhal is one of the latest mid-tower cases from Raidmax, which offers plenty of interior space in order to build gaming systems. Apart from that there are quite a few neat little features, like for example a dust filter bay and a reasonable price.

BitFenix Prodigy M Colour Series Micro-ATX Chassis Review
     Tue, Jul 28 2015 | 1:26A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It’s been two years since I first reviewed the BitFenix Prodigy M, but today, I’ll be revisiting this now classic Prodigy chassis design to take a look at the latest Colour series from BitFenix. Colour choices are always a welcome addition to any range and from a consumer perspective, having more choice is no bad thing. Colour coordinating your build becomes a lot easier when you can pick something that suits your needs and preferences. Today I’ve got the Prodigy M Red, as well as a few other bonus goodies from BitFenix to help with the build, such as the BitFenix Fury PSU, a 120mm Spectra Pro red LED fan, a BitFenix Alchemy white LED strip, as well as a red side panel window.

Thermaltake Core V21 Mini-ITX/Mini-ATX PC Case Review
     Tue, Jul 28 2015 | 1:22A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Many people i know who either enjoy modding or just like to own something unique looking all agree that never before has the market been so vast and with so many available PC Cases for them to choose from. Of course as always in the years to come things should get even more interesting but i do agree with them since today you can find PC cases of all shapes and sizes with unique looking designs, plenty of features and pretty much in every price segment. Now it's no secret that not all PC case manufacturers out there have the ability to cover every single consumer in the market but Thermaltake is amongst the very few that thanks to their size and years of experience can and today with us we have one of their latest and most interesting mATX/mITX models the Core V21.

Epicgear Dezimator X @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Jul 26 2015 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are so many companies that make mechanical keyboards these days that I would completely forgive you for not knowing who Epicgear is. Unlike a lot of those companies though Epicgear is actually an offshoot from G-Skill, just about anyone who has shopped for parts for a budget gaming PC will know them. You see, G-Skill it known for making gaming focused RAM that is typically found at a good price as well. So when I was talking to a friend over at Massdrop about upcoming deals and they mentioned sending over the Epicgear Dezimator X I was interested. So today I’m going to find out what the Dezimator X is all about and find out if it follows in the footsteps of its parent company in being a gaming focused product for people on a budget.

Case Mod Friday: Mid-Lif Cry-Sys
     Sun, Jul 26 2015 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have Buehlar's “Mid-Lif Cry-Sys” build. Here is what he had to say about it, "Alright guys, here's the deal. I'm 40 years young, over the hill and bored to death...so the title "Mid-Life Cry-Sys" kinda fits the um...build. Well, I had way too much hardware crammed into the Corsair C70 and as a result it was just impossible to maintain. The C70 was great but I'm the guy who likes to tinker and swap out hardware with my builds and I couldn't get a finger inside the chassis after it was complete. So here I go again after many months of contemplating on a new case for the build. I just want to do something that has a different attitude...classic style and in the end, easy to maintain.""

SuperMicro Gaming S5 Special Edition Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Sat, Jul 25 2015 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SuperMicro is better known for their enterprise solutions. They create high-end workstation motherboards, server rack mounts and other professional solutions, but now they’re taking a shot at the consumer level market with the release of their Gaming S5 Mid-Tower chassis, a gaming focused tower and that is something that really caught our attention. It wouldn’t be the first time a company like this has gone from industrial to consumer markets, but SuperMicro has a rock solid reputation and a lot of industry experience, so we were very excited to be able to check out their first consumer chassis product.

NZXT Noctis 450 Mid Tower Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Jul 23 2015 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The NZXT NOCTIS 450 is a mixture of engineering and modern art; sharing an internal frame that we have come a custom to find with the more familiar S340 and H440 in addition adding to that mix a completely different outer shell design theme. The NOCTIS 450 is like imagining a Phantom and a H440 metamorphosing together into a completely different mixture of look and style, but still keeping that similar inner engineering that we have come to enjoy with NZXT sharing of innovations of Custom Computer Case Modders around the Globe. The fit is solid and the case has a great price point at $139.99. I would highly recommend this case to a new builder or someone looking to replace an older case if they are really into its Art Deco Modern Artistic styling offered by this new NOCTIS 450 NZXT CASE design because for the price there are very few cases out there at this price point that have what this case has."

Phanteks Enthoo Pro M Chassis Review
     Thu, Jul 23 2015 | 12:45P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Phanteks has released a budget PC case with a model code that suggests it is a junior version of the Enthoo Pro. In fact the Pro M (M for mid-tower) is a hybrid of the Pro and the recent Enthoo ATX, with a number of changes to keep the price as low as possible.

be quiet! Silent Base 800 Windowed Edition Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Thu, Jul 23 2015 | 12:38P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
be quiet! have one of the best-kept reputations in the PC component market, having created some of the most reliable and best performing products we’ve ever seen. Their range of CPU coolers often dominate leaderboards for their ultra-quiet performance, but then again, with a name like “be quiet!” they wouldn’t be worth much if they were noisy. Their PSUs are rock solid, with a range of great features and you guessed it, super-quiet performance. So what about their chassis? We already reviewed the Base 800 a little while ago and absolutely loved the quality and design, as well as its focus on noise suppression, but it was lacking one little detail; a side panel window.
