Lian Li PC-Q17 Mini-ITX Case Review
     Mon, Nov 07 2016 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mini-ITX as a form-factor is definitely a fast-growing trend. Technology has advanced to the point where you can build a system as a powerful as a regular mid-tower desktop, but in a case with a tiny footprint. The Lian Li PC-Q17 caters to that market – those looking for a premium-grade experience without the clutter and hassle of an ATX case.

     Sat, Nov 05 2016 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink

In this review I’ll be looking at the Silverstone Primera Series PM01. This is a new series for Silverstone that is designed for exceptional style and functionality. Primera is a Spanish word for first and is an interesting choice considering that the overall design and style

Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Tempered Glass
     Fri, Nov 04 2016 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just over 2 years ago we took a look at the Phanteks Enthoo Luxe case. At the time we thought it was one of the best cases out there and gave it a 10 out of 10 score. Now Phanteks has given the case its tempered glass treatment, added a full tempered glass side panel. Other new features include SSD mounts in the main compartment to display your drives, the front 200 mm has been replaced by dual 140 mm fans, and there is a new color variation of grey, which we are taking a look at today. Besides that the case is the same as the one we reviewed two years ago so it is a full tower with support for large motherboards like E-ATX and SSI EEB, a good amount of room for watercooling, RGB lighting and much more. Let’s take a look!"

In Win 303 ATX Mid-Tower Case Review
     Fri, Nov 04 2016 | 11:05A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"For those that are not familiar with any of the In Win products, let us describe the Taiwan-based In Win company as a luxurious enclosure manufacturer, using high quality components, especially in their exclusive designs. If you want a case that stands out from the crowd their gamma will for sure have a model that will perfectly suit your needs. The In Win 805 we reviewed was a premium case with tempered glass all around; In Win even has more classy looking models in their lineup than the 909 full-tower model we also tested. Each year at Computex they have an absolute stunning case or prototype on display and they are accumulating the awards year after year. Normally an exclusive design goes hand in hand with a beefy price tag, however with the 303 In Win launches a high grade mid-tower enclosure that is sort of affordable. Time to open the box and see what this In Win 303 has got in store for us."

     Fri, Nov 04 2016 | 11:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This week’s build comes from Hanoicomputer out of Vietnam. It is done inside the Jonsbo Mod1 Green chassis, which is not that well known here in the states. The case is beautiful and the build Hanoicomputer has done inside is great. Taking a look at the build you can see where it gets it name from! Enjoy!"

NZXT S340 Elite Case Review
     Tue, Nov 01 2016 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
XT S340 Elite is a modern twist on the S340 that launched in 2014. If you stand a short distance away from the Elite, the most obvious change is the tempered glass side panel which looks lovely and shows off the inside of your PC to full effect.

CR1080's dual compartment case interior
     Mon, Oct 31 2016 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a dual compartment design, the area normally used to mount the motherboard is instead occupied by drive bays - two 3.5” and one 2.5” (or three 2.5” drives) - and the power supply area, all mounted vertically with room to run cables and even space for a lower front mounted 80mm fan. Moving to the normal cable management side of the case, we find the motherboard mounting area with the I/O panel at the bottom and the PCI card slots at the top. What makes this setup intriguing are the two 120mm fan mounts at the front and an 80mm fan mount at the rear that should make for a direct air flow path across the motherboard."

Case Mod Friday: Big Red
     Fri, Oct 28 2016 | 11:58A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have TechMaxTV's "Big Red" build! This is what he had to say about it, "This time I'll upgrade my personal rig. The colorscheme I'm planning to go with is black/white/red. I will go for a 480mm radiator in the top and in the bottom and a full watercooling loop with red coolant. I will remove all the drivebays in the front and probably go for a dual reservoir. Possibly I would do a custom acrylic glass window side panel.""

Rosewill Cullinan Gaming Case @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Oct 27 2016 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past 5 years or so I have seen the case market slowly move its focus from the flashy designs that most people associate with gaming to a cleaner theme. With that we have also seen a few companies, namely, In Win, introduce custom designs that have incorporated glass into their designs. In fact, I personally have three different builds that utilize glass. So when Rosewill contacted me about their new Cullinan case that utilizes glass and has a simple/elegant design I jumped right on board, completely ignoring the fact that it was launching right in the middle of our LAN, Alex’s and I’s vacation, and basically the craziest time for me. Because of that, I’m a little late to the party taking a look at the case, but I’m still excited to see what direction Rosewill is moving in their cases.

The Raijintek Styx is a single-chamber compact tower micro-ATX case with an aluminum shell and internal steel frame.
