Cooler Master CM 690 II Advanced chassis
     Sun, Mar 23 2014 | 12:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Almost 4 years ago, we tested the Cooler Master CM 690 II Advanced chassis and after some variations of the award winning Mid-Tower, the new CM 690 III is now published by Cooler Master, which we tested in this review. However it quickly became clear that this CM 690 III offers in comparison to the CM 690 II predecessor not only improvements. That is why we have decided to integrate a CM 690 III casemod guide in this review to optimize the case in a few simple steps. Here is the brand-new Cooler Master CM 690 III PC case review with the combined casemod guide.

"The Corsair Graphite Series 230T is a mid-tower case with three 5.25" bays, four 3.5" bays, four 2.5" bays, support for 280 mm radiators, and a transparent window at the left panel, coming with a very affordable USD 80 price tag. Let's take a look at it."

AzzA XT 1B Full Tower Case
     Fri, Mar 21 2014 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The case I have for review today is a new design called the XT-1. Similar to the Solano 1000, this is described as a full tower case with dimensions that place it more in an extended mid-tower category. It is available in either a black/red or white/blue color scheme, denoted by either a B or W in the model number. AzzA touts the XT-1's cooling ability with four included fans and support for dual 120mm radiator, graphics cards up to 340mm in length, a tool-less design with included hot-swap drive bay and removable/exchangeable front and top grills.”

CM Storm Ceres 500 Gaming Headset
     Thu, Mar 20 2014 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"2014 seems to be a good year for both PC gaming and console gaming. With so many different games being launched, one of the universal things every gamer needs is a great gaming headset. We need something we can wear for hours comfortably without any issues. Some of us also run into issues of having multiple systems and would love to use the same headset for both. Well it looks like Cooler Master made that headset and called the CM Storm Ceres 500. The CM Storm Ceres 500 is supposed to work on PC/PS3/PS4 and Xbox. You are also supposed to be able to have it hooked up to 2 different systems at the same time and with a flip of the switch go from one system to the other. Now lets see if you will make the switch to the CM Storm Ceres 500."

Silverstone RV04-B Raven Full Tower Chassis Review
     Wed, Mar 19 2014 | 12:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Silverstone are pioneers when it comes to high performance chassis products, and their legendary Raven series is right at the front of the pack. This isn’t the first Raven product we’ve reviewed and if it’s anything near as good as the (now a few years old) Raven RV01 that I reviewed last year, then we’re in for a real treat today. Of course we’ve also reviewed an even newer Raven series product more recently; the Mini-ITX compatible RVz01, which you canread here. As with most high-end enthusiast grade products, you can expect a wave of premium features, sublime engineering and class leading design. Of course these kind of features don’t come cheap and the Raven RV04 will set you back around $159.99/£120, putting it online with many other premium products from the likes of Cooler Master, Fractal Design, NZXT, Corsair and more. At this price range I’ll be looking for nothing short of exceptional quality, but given that previous models blew us away, there is little doubt that this will be anything but great. Full tower chassis are becoming more and more popular as PC users demand more and more powerful components, including multiple graphics cards, larger cooling components, RAID storage and the like. The Raven RV04 looks set to tick all of the boxes and as you can see from the specifications below, it’s very well equipped, so let’s get right to it and take a closer look at what Silverstone’s latest chassis has to offer.

There are 7 expansion slots, 3 x 5.25 inch ODD drive bays, 1 front accessible 3.5” bay, and hidden within are 5 x 3.5” bays and a single 2.5” bay for an SSD. "

Thermaltake Core V71 Full Tower
     Tue, Mar 18 2014 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When i first started my journey in computers around 25 years ago things were very simple when building your own system so you pretty much had to choose between just a handful of mainboards and CPUs, even less memory modules and sound cards and if that wasn't already bad enough things were even worse when it came to HDDs, graphics cards, monitors, peripherals and of course PC Cases. Back then variety was non-existent (you could probably count every consumer available brand with just your fingers) so the only thing we could do was to look forward for new technologies announced and compared to now it took many years for most of those to reach us. Just imagine that it took roughly a decade before i could even find a PC Case that wasn't just 6 flat metal plates joint together and painted white. Well the exact opposite happens today but things aren't that much different since because of the countless models in the market some people have it equally hard to find the PC Case best suited for their needs. Thermaltake has been in the "special" PC Case industry right from the start and they just rolled out one of the most impressive cases of the year the Core V71 Full Tower which we have here with us today.

Typo Keyboard Case Review
     Mon, Mar 17 2014 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While asking many mobile device users why they do not use an iPhone, most return with a typical response: they need a QWERTY keyboard. While some QWERTY keyboard options are already available, none of which seem to be visually appealing or satisfy the need for a particular keyboard. Bring in the Typo Keyboard Case. This keyboard case is one of the first of its kind to provide a minimalistic case for your iPhone 5 or 5s, which is accompanied by a great typing experience. Most of the keyboard cases we have seen already are very similar to your sliding QWERTY mobile devices, which strike the risk of damage to the internal components via repetitive movements. Let’s take a closer look at the Typo Keyboard Case.

"After collecting enough temperature data, I think it is safe to say that both the video card and CPU are not the best for capturing the chassis temps. While generally a degree or two off is considered within the margin of error, I keep my house a near constant 22 °C when I run the tests. On a warm day, the XT1 will not disappoint with the most airflow in a chassis I have tested so far. Yet, it still does not hold any records. The unfortunate effect of not overclocking high enough or having multiple video cards, it is hard to tell what the temperatures will look like in different scenarios. The XT1 is really meant as an airflow monster and if you have a hot video card or even multiple ones, this chassis has you covered.”

AZZA XT 1 Full Tower Case Review
     Fri, Mar 14 2014 | 3:13P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"AZZA's XT 1 Full Tower case makes quite a bold statement with its styling. The superfluous angles make the XT 1 aggressive and mean looking. It packs quite a few features too: tool-less drive trays, tons of ventilation, four 5.25" drive bays, six internal SSD/HDD bays plus an external swappable hard drive bay, cable management, dual USB 3.0 ports, dust filters, water cooling support."

We look forward to examining the extent to which this is true and if it truly represents good value for money.
