Phanteks Evolv ATX Tempered Glass Edition Review
     Sat, May 07 2016 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You need to build a tidy PC inside the Phanteks Evolv ATX Tempered Glass Edition as both side panels are full frame tempered glass with a tiny painted black bezel so absolutely everything inside the case is on show. In addition to that Phanteks encourages you to light inside both panels with an RGB LED kit, which means there is simply no place to hide a sloppy build or dubious cabling.

Posted by: STAFF

Corsair Carbide Spec-Alpha ATX Mid-Tower Review
     Wed, May 04 2016 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ATX Mid-Tower has always been a favorite of PC builders. It can be transported with relative ease, while still managing to hold a respectable amount of very high-end hardware. The Spec-Alpha is Corsair's latest entry to the market and has gamers squarely in its sights. Priced at $80, this is a case that we very much expect to be a dominant force for a few reasons.

Case Mod Friday: The Command Center
     Fri, Apr 29 2016 | 3:39P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This week for Case Mod Friday we have a full setup rather than just a case mod. Typically we don't feature setups, but this one was too awesome to not share. It is "The Command Center" by Pilot_H and it has to be one of the most insane setups we've seen! He has an X99 system decked out with a Core i7-5960X, four GTX 980 Ti's, 32GB of DDR4, and 2 GB of SSD storage. This is all inside an In Win S-Frame case and everything is water cooled! On top of that he has a 4-display setup which is made up of three Acer Predator X43's and a single ASUS PG27Q. He has a second PC that is inside an aquarium and has some pretty high-end audio equipment! This is anyone's dream setup!"

InWin 909 E-ATX Aluminium & Tempered Glass Chassis Review
     Thu, Apr 28 2016 | 12:11P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Building an extreme gaming rig, enthusiast grade workstation of simply a system that offers some akin to installing a work of art in your office space can be quite an expensive endeavour. The InWin 909, the latest addition to their already quite extensive selection of premium chassis, looks like the perfect chassis for the job, and while it comes with a bit of a hefty price tag, the sheer volume of aluminium and tempered glass, as well as the extensive component support on offer looks set prove that you really do get what you pay for.

Thermaltake Versa N21 Case Review
     Thu, Apr 28 2016 | 12:07P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In this Review, we will be looking at the Thermaltake Versa N21 Mid-Tower case. As a side note, I actually asked to do a review of this case as it fit perfectly a theme for an upcoming build I have been wanting to complete. I looked through almost a hundred cases before deciding on this case and I didn't decide this case for the price. It had the look and feel of the Theme that I needed and I love doing case mods so I am really excited about this review and building in this case and it seems to be everything I needed for this particular build. The Thermaltake N21 has very classy lines and while the case is made for many different applications I found the case to be great for modding. It is overbuilt on the Frame so this allows me as an Enthusiast to cut instead of adding portions to the case that I need. This makes it easier to build in as I don't need to engineer parts to make my theme a reality. The paint is well done in the Arctic White and the inner chassis is painted black with no overspray or under-spray. This makes it easier for the builder also since we don't have to redo a paint job that should have been done correctly at the factory."

new MU-MIMO technology
     Wed, Apr 27 2016 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The second wave of 802.11ac routers are now shipping, and they offer a tantalizing performance benefit over the previous routers we’ve reviewed (at least with their older firmware) — the ability to broadcast multiple data streams to several clients at once. This technology, named MU-MIMO, which stands for Multiple User: Multiple Input, Multiple Output, is just now starting to roll out, and is different in one obvious way to the previous technology, named simply MIMO. The previous solution was only able to broadcast multiple streams of data, but could only transmit to one client at a time, whereas this new MU-MIMO technology can send multiple data streams to multiple users at the same time, so it could represent quite a leap forward in performance when multiple MU-MIMO enabled systems are connected through the router. The industry, and users like ourselves, have been looking forward to this advancement for quite some time...

Corsair Carbide SPEC-ALPHA Review
     Mon, Apr 25 2016 | 5:35P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The SPEC-ALPHA first made its appearance at CES 2016 earlier in the year and it attracted lots of attention with its funky and bold styling. SPEC-ALPHA is a mid-tower chassis and is really designed for gamers who want to make an impact – the case has a large Perspex window, a trio of cooling fans (which also include LED lighting) and plenty of space for high-end systems.

Fractal Design Core 500 Case Review
     Mon, Apr 25 2016 | 5:34P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Fractal Design’s Core Series has been very solid. We’ve reviewed quite a few cases from the Core Series and they have proven to be very reliable, loaded with features, and have a very simplistic design. Fractal Design recently released their first mini-ITX case in the Core Series, the Core 500. This case is quite small, but still offers many features you would find in full-size cases. Inside you have room for long graphics cards and normal ATX power supplies up to 310 mm, CPU coolers up to 170 mm tall, six hard drives, and even water cooling support for radiators up to 280 mm! Yet the case remains small and compact. Let’s jump in and see what the Core 500 is all about!"

Aerocool Aero-800 Black Edition Chassis Review
     Mon, Apr 25 2016 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We’ve previously reviewed the Aerocool Aero-1000 White Chassis and liked it. The Aero-1000 chassis got a solid 4.3/5.0 and was also recommended as a great all-rounder. The Aero-1000 is the high end PGS A Series chassis form Aerocool, with the Aero-800 in the middle and the Aero-500 starting the range off.
