Azza Z Mini ITX Gaming Case Review
     Thu, Jan 01 2015 | 9:18A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quote: We may be looking at the future of enthusiast gaming PCs with the Azza Z case. A SFF case that can run most full sized components and look good doing it, yes and yes. The Z does a great job embracing the form factor while minimizing the compromise.

MSI Dragon Castle
     Thu, Jan 01 2015 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have Derek Smith's “MSI Dragon Castle” build. Here is what he had to say about it: The Idea was inspired by the Steam Castle project that I was commissioned to do but I started with a red case. I decided to black it out with the Red MSI Dragon to give the Steam Castle a theme more suiting to the old days of Castles and Dragons. They go together so nicely."

The Best Chassis for Steambox/HTPC Style Gaming Systems
     Wed, Dec 31 2014 | 11:18A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Steambox is certainly grabbing a lot of headlines throughout 2014, with system integrators (such as CyberPower) creating their own custom Steambox style systems, and chassis manufacturers creating new cases that are suitable for the job. Of course, there is a lot of smoke and mirrors surrounding Steambox, but we’re going to blow away any doubt and get you up to speed on what a Steambox is and how you can do it. First thing is first, Steambox is a PC, nothing less and nothing more. What we’re really looking at here is a clever rebranding by Valve to make HTPC gaming sound cool. Of course, it really is cool and credit goes to Valve for creating something that is appealing to both mainstream console gamers, as much as it is PC gamers. The major difference for Steambox is the introduction of SteamOS, which is still in beta, but once again all that really is a Linux distro designed to launch Steam as the native desktop. This may sound a little complicated for some, but don’t worry as I’ll be revisiting this subject over the next couple of weeks to bring you up to speed on how it all works, how you can build your own, set everything up and more. While much of the fun stuff is certainly contained within the games you’ll be playing, let’s start things off nice and easy and find out about the chassis you’ll be using. There are lots of great PC chassis’ on the market, but I’ve picked up a bunch that I thought would be ideal for the job and today I’m going to put them to the test. I’ll be looking for several key factors from each chassis, their price, form factor, hardware/component compatibility, built quality, acoustic performance and thermal performance.

Lian-Li PC-05S Wall Mountable Mini-ITX Chassis Review
     Wed, Dec 31 2014 | 10:18A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lian-Li is a master of aluminium chassis design. Time and time again they’ve created incredible chassis that are works of art as much as they are practical, high-performance juggernauts. Today is a pretty special day for Lian-Li as it marks the launch of their latest fanciful chassis, the PC-05S, which is rather unique in the sense that it can be used as a horizontal HTPC style chassis, mounted vertically on a special stand for desktop use, or even more special than that, you can mount it on a wall! The chassis modding scene has seen wall mounted chassis already, as there are a lot of people out there who love to show off their rigs and what better way than putting it right up on display where everyone can see it. Of course, this is a pretty specialist product, which isn’t going to appeal to everyone out there, but for those that want to take a break from the standard chassis form factors that sit under your desk, the PC-05S is certainly a breath of fresh air.

Phanteks Enthoo Evolv Review: Kitguru TV
     Tue, Dec 30 2014 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Phanteks Enthoo Evolv is a Micro-ATX design that looks like no other case we have seen before. The most obvious feature is the way the design uses flat aluminium panels that pop on and off without the use of fasteners. When you look a little deeper you see the front panel connectors have been moved to one side panel and the optical drive bay is at the rear of the case.

Lian Li PC-O5S Review
     Mon, Dec 29 2014 | 4:18P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I would say the 'O' stands for "oversized window," as one of the key aspects of the series are the oversized tempered glass windows that combined with Lian Li's renowned aluminum construction and PCI riser cards make them perfect for showing off your machine's guts.

BitFenix Shadow Tower Case Review
     Sun, Dec 28 2014 | 3:18A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Some system builders will want to create a new PC with up to 7 hard drives, have it booting from an SSD with tool-free accessibility and yet won’t want to spend more than £55 for the experience. If that sounds like you, then BitFenix has been working on a case that might just fit the bill.

NZXT H440 Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Sat, Dec 27 2014 | 11:18P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Typically, cases designed with the goal of being silent have been bland looking. But NZXT jazzes things up with the H440 using bright accents -- without looking too flashy -- along a redesigned interior and next-gen FN V2 fans. It also drops the old 5.25" drive bays to use the space for other hardware, a move we're interested in seeing other manufacturers make.

In Win D-Frame Mini - Mini-ITX Case Review
     Fri, Dec 26 2014 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Design and utility are two totally different things. IN WIN delivers to us today a mini-ITX computer "case" that will draw the interests of many enthusiasts simply based on its design alone. But many enthusiasts are all about utility first! Does the D-Frame Mini bridge the gap from eye catching design into the realm of a great performer?

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.

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.
