SilverStone Kublai KL05 Computer Case Review
     Mon, Apr 20 2015 | 12:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A budget case with a window. How will the SilverStone KL05 fare?

Thermaltake Core X9
     Sun, Apr 19 2015 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Thermaltake Core X9 is a builder's dream. There is just a ton of space. You can put a license plate on the X9 and take the family camping. Stack two cases together and you have a condo on the beach. Ok, I exaggerate, but the large internal volume and modular design allow for almost unlimited options for fan and radiator mounting. HDD space? Not a problem. There are dedicated hard drive cages as well as a few places under the motherboard tray to sneak in a few more HDDs. Do you have a custom water cooling system that leaves you grumbling and compromising with other cases? Not a problem with the Core X9. It can handle everything from extra tall CPU coolers to long GPUs.”

Case Mod Friday Out of Mana v2.0 @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Apr 17 2015 | 10:16A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have greggus`s Out of Mana v2.0 build. Here is what he had to say about it, A fully watercooled black & blue themed build housed in a slightly modified 900D. What I want to achieve with this build? A big massive looking build. Something heavy, with a lot of fittings. Industrial heavy machine style!"

Supermicro Gaming S5 Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Fri, Apr 17 2015 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We typically expect to see server motherboards from Supermicro, but today we have a surprise, a mid-tower case designed for gamers."

AeroCool GT-A Chassis Review
     Thu, Apr 16 2015 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
First appearances matter, and the styling of the Aerocool GT-A will easily distract you from the fact that this is a budget ATX case. The appearance of this white version with a blue LED fan at the front is eye-catching with its flared wheel arch thing at the front and the louvred top cover that sits above two empty 120mm fan housings. In front of that top cover there is a discreet sliding cover that conceals a SATA dock and when you look at the front panel you’ll find a pair of rotary fan controllers.

Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV ITX Review
     Wed, Apr 15 2015 | 11:30A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
EVOLV ITX is a small but expertly formed computer case which is primarily designed for Mini-ITX computer systems. Although the chassis is small in size, it can house a plethora of high-end hardware such as big CPU coolers, full-sized graphics cards and different sized radiators. EVOLV ITX promises to offer some exciting and innovative features for those wanting to downsize, so let’s check it out!

Lian-Li DK-01 Aluminium Desk Chassis Review
     Wed, Apr 15 2015 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not all chassis’ are created equal, that much we know already, but there are some that are so far ahead of the rest, its almost rude to call them a chassis at all. Lian-Li is no stranger to the extreme end of the PC market, having already created some incredible products that cost large sums of money, capable of housing everything from rendering workstations, to ultra-high-end gaming systems. Today, however, they’ve gone even further, creating a chassis that breaks from the usual bonds of a box that houses components, by creating a chassis that is also a fully fledged desk!

DEEPCOOL Steam Castle "Steam-Punk" Case Review
     Mon, Apr 13 2015 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is one of those moments that you go, "Uh, what?" Deepcool Industries comes to us today with its Steam Castle micro-ATX and mini-ITX computer case for smaller system configurations. While your definition of "steam-punk" may differ from Deepcool's, one thing for sure is this case is unique in its look. How does it perform however?

Pandora Micro-Tower case series
     Sun, Apr 12 2015 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The BitFenix Pandora is one micro-tower case you won't want to hide from view in your digital living room or home theatre setup, thanks to its brushed aluminum exterior featuring curved side panels to meet up front with a front panel that can display a custom graphic of your choice for extra visual flair. It lacks external drive bays, but promises to offer enough space within its slim frame to accommodate for 240mm water cooling radiators and graphics cards up to 360mm in length as well as the airflow design needed to help keep the interior cool.

P380 full tower is Antec's Best
     Sun, Apr 12 2015 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The P380 full tower is Antec's newest flagship case. We put the P380 through the gauntlet to see whether it can hang with some of the best cases on the market.

Corsair Graphite 380T Review
     Fri, Apr 10 2015 | 12:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
No doubt you are beginning to lose track of all the cases that Corsair has in its range but honestly, the Graphite 380T is easy to remember. You see it is Mini-ITX and it has a handle on the top, and the sample we have here is yellow and black in colour, rather like a wasp or hornet only with fewer wings. As it happens I was expecting either a black case with red lighting or a black and white model with white lighting, so you have avoided a weak joke about zebras by the narrowest of margins.

Cooltek C3 Case Review
     Thu, Apr 09 2015 | 12:17P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Cooltek C3 arrived Technic3D. The C3 supports Mini-ITX and Micro-ATX motherboards and have place for 2x 120mm and1x 140mm Cooling-Fans. We will check this and many more in the following Review."

Raidmax Viper GX II Review
     Thu, Apr 09 2015 | 11:55A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Viper GX II is on of the latest mid-tower cases from Raidmax, which offers plenty of interior space in order to build gaming systems. Apart from that there are quite a few neat little features, like for example a hot-swap bay and a reasonable price.

Antec P70 Case Review
     Thu, Apr 09 2015 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Antec 900 made true case history with the little Mid Tower monster and his big brother the Antec 1200 gaming case. These cases were the first case with a huge 200mm exhaust fan and it revolutionized air cooling computers for a decade to come and with its dual 120mm lighted intake fans in the front and that giant top 200mm exhaust and even a 120mm fan attached to this case, it was a piece of computer aerodynamics history that was proven over and over by temperature tests by owners and reviewers all over the world to be the best they had ever witnessed. There were revisions over the years and a second generation to the 900 case, and it went over okay I guess; but the price and the look of the original real thing was so incredible it was hard to get people to buy the next gen cover model. Even, now I am almost sure that there are a few Antec 900 user’s out there reading this review on the internet right now. It has been Newegg.com’s Most Sold computer case ever in history and has been on the number one spot of the Electronics’ Billboard Charts of production cases since its inception almost a full decade ago. Now 9 years have passed and sure there have been lot of Antec cases since then but nothing to rate or to make history like the Antec 900, but Antec has a new Economy case called the Antec P70. I really don’t think that this case is going to make history like its grandfather but he is quite a case of it’s own."

Silverstone Raven RV05-BW Chassis Review
     Wed, Apr 08 2015 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Silverstone are back again with the latest entry in their now legendary Raven series. We’ve always loved the Raven chassis here at eTeknix and while we’ve not reviewed the entire range, I have spent some time tinkering with each of them personally. Just check out our Reviews of the RV04 and theRVZ01 here to see what else they have to offer. Of course if you’re eager to check out their latest and greatest, then you’ll do better to stick around for the rest of this review first. The Raven series is something of a flagship range for Silverstone, often pushing innovation and very unique designs for the gaming PC market. They’ve often been big, relatively expensive and uniquely styled compared to rival offerings, but the RV05 looks set to do thing a little differently. The 5.25? drive bays are gone, allowing much more room for the motherboard and other components, while also allowing Silverstone to cut the overall size of the chassis down considerably, this is backed up by a much more affordable price tag when compared to the older Raven models, which often cost a little over £100 at release, where as the RV05 is a much more wallet friendly £80.00.

Case Mod Friday: LUMO
     Wed, Apr 08 2015 | 12:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have B NEGATIVE's “LUMO” build. This mod takes the In Win D-Frame Mini to a whole new level and there is so much detail and customization on this case its crazy! Here is that builder B NEGATIVE said about it, "After the S3, which is far too large for a LAN box like originally planned, I wanted a smaller footprint and something a bit more aesthetically pleasing,so, after seeing this gorgeous case at Computex, I made some inquiries at In Win and here is the result!""

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.
