NZXT S340 Mid Tower PC Case Review
     Fri, Mar 06 2015 | 4:42P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As with most computer components, PC cases come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes and of course prices. The key is finding the right case at a price that’s right for you. Today I have the pleasure of looking at a new chassis from NZXT that is available from Amazon for $69.99 shipped, the S340. The NZXT S340 is a sleek looking chassis that isn’t going to break the bank.

Corsair Graphite Series 780T Review
     Fri, Mar 06 2015 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the new Corsair Graphite Series 780T full tower PC case. The aesthetics are fairly impressive with a big design, large see through window, latched doors, magnetic top and front mesh panels and even a fan controller. The 780T is one of x-factor products really, and will get embraced by the PC enthusiast community.

Raijintek Metis Classic Computer Case Review
     Thu, Mar 05 2015 | 4:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mini PC’s are a crucial part for a media center PC and even small compact gaming PC’s. With the Raijintek Metis Classic computer case, system builders can now build even smaller and more compact media center or gaming PC’s. This lightweight aluminum case supports mini-ITX motherboards and even a full size ATX power supply. The Metis comes in a variety of colors to choose from. These colors include red, black, silver, blue, green and gold. Benchmark Reviews has been given this gold sample for this review. With the right hardware components, the Metis can be turned into the perfect computer for the living room and even a high-performance gaming machine in a small form factor.

Enermax iVektor Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Thu, Mar 05 2015 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Enermax is one of the best names in the business, having designed many successful chassis, power supplies and cooling products over years. They’ve proven to us here at eTeknix time and time again that they can make some great products, with some very competitive price tags and that’s a trend I hope to see repeated here today with the iVektor. There’s no skipping over the fact that the iVektor isn’t the most recent product from Enermax, but we missed out on it the first time and I was eager to see what it could do, as I particularly liked the unique aesthetics of the chassis when I saw it at various trade shows. The iVektor is targeted at the mid-budget gaming market, with a price tag that will get you a little change from £70 from most major retailers. It sports enough features to be versatile for almost any kind of system build, so let’s jump in and take a closer look.

Corsair Carbide Series 100R Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Wed, Mar 04 2015 | 11:24A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just think. A large clear windowed panel with an all black sprayed interior, drive mounting that is very well thought out, semi tool-less designs and a special place for that AIO or all in one 240 X 120mm hydro cooler. They even offer the gamer an indirect intake air cooling from the side gills to keep the front nice clean and less noisy and you get that Monster Corsair Obsidian look on the front end with the faux brushed aluminum anodized look of a plastic front end. No one will know but you and it beats the other cases that are in this price range by a country mile. Would you believe it? Well truthfully I am slightly skeptical too, but I really am rooting for Corsair`s newest 100R Carbide Series Case to make a true believer out of me, but we will see as the Review continues on. So let`s see if this nice looking Econ-o-Box can stand up to a gaming setup and how will it fit the needs? Will it be a viable alternative and a budget saver to use the Corsair Carbide Series 100R or do we need to look further into the higher priced Cases?"

Xigmatek Spirit M Mini-Tower Chassis Review
     Wed, Mar 04 2015 | 10:36A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today Chad checks out a new mini-tower computer case from Xigmatek, the Spirit M. We were quite surprised by what you get for the solid price."

Thermaltake Core V51 Chassis Review
     Tue, Mar 03 2015 | 4:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The key feature of the Thermaltake Core V51 is its substantial size. It stands 540mm high and 560mm deep, which means it can support an EATX motherboard with eight expansion slots. You’ll get a better idea about the size of Core V51 when you hear it accommodates a graphics card up to 310mm in length without any trouble and if you remove the drive towers you can go all the way to 480mm.

Corsair Carbide 100R Silent Review @ Vortez
     Tue, Mar 03 2015 | 11:24A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Carbide Series 100R is a low-cost, entry level computer case which comes in two different versions - standard and silent. The standard version comes with a side window, fan mounts at the top and just one cooling fan whilst the silent version uses closed panels, comes with an additional fan, fan controller and noise reduction material. This case hopes to deliver on styling, features and cost but will it win our seal of approval today? Let`s find out!"

Xigmatek Mach Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Mon, Mar 02 2015 | 12:41P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I must admit that I love a high-end chassis’ that are packed full of features with a high-end rig installed, as I’m sure many of you do too. However, not everyone has a need for an extreme gaming system, nor the budget for one. For many people, a nice simple chassis that is easy to work with and wallet friendly is what they need and that’s exactly what we have here today.

Corsair Carbide 100R Silent Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Mon, Mar 02 2015 | 12:30P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair is one of the most recognizable names in the chassis industry, having many of the most popular chassis’ designs across many different price ranges. They’ve dazzled us with their flagship products such at gargantuan Obsidian 900D and the very funky Carbide 780T, but today I’ll be looking at something a lot further down the range; the budget-friendly 100R Silent. The new chassis isn’t designed to blow you away with extreme performance, but it has been designed to offer you a neat and tidy product, with an affordable price tag to match, so it’ll be interesting to see just how much you get for your money.

InWin 703 Chassis Review
     Mon, Mar 02 2015 | 12:28P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In essence the InWin 703 is a small ATX design that has been dressed up with a smart front panel and funky windowed side panel to make it look more exotic than the underlying steel chassis might suggest.

SilverStone TS431S 4-Bay miniSAS DAS Storage Tower Review
     Mon, Mar 02 2015 | 12:27P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Connecting multiple storage drives externally doesn’t work equally well on every connection type. If you were to use a USB 3 connection you would get the speed necessary, but your access times would suffer. If you were to connect it via eSATA you would have the access times, but shared bandwidth between the connected drives.

SteelSeries Siberia Elite Prism Review @ Vortez
     Mon, Mar 02 2015 | 10:36A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Much of the aesthetic remains similar to the previous Elite headset, available in white/black and black, the overall design is definitive of the Siberia Series yet allows you to think sleek and imposing or beautifully monstrous. If SteelSeries delivers on their claims of improvement, the Siberia Elite Prism could simply be the finest example of a gaming headset."

Cougar 600K Review at HardwareHeaven
     Fri, Feb 27 2015 | 9:29A | Cases | PermaLink

Today we get to see another higher end keyboard, though this time with no frills, in our Cougar 600K (Mechanical) Review."

Thermaltake Core V51 Case Review
     Thu, Feb 26 2015 | 2:18P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this review we looked at the Thermaltake Core V51 Mid-Tower case. The case features traditional design cues on the outside and a real attempt to build a modular box on the inside.

Raidmax Hyperion Form Factor MATX/ITX Gaming
     Thu, Feb 26 2015 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Hyperion form factor case from Raidmax comes in a very simple but stylish cube design, built to house both Mini-ITX and Micro-ATX systems. The Raidmax Hyperion for its small size comes divided into two thermally isolated areas, and is also equipped for watercooling in as many as three different zones within it. With a price of only $70, there is some excellent value here for the budget-conscious consumer who wants something a bit different.”

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.

Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 Intel X79 LGA2011 Motherboard In-Depth Review
Jul 27 | Motherboards
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.
