Case Labs Mercury S8S Review
     Fri, May 20 2016 | 4:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Mercury S8S from Case Labs is basically a short version of the S8. As with all enclosures from Case Labs also this one is individually configurable in their shop and therefore the possibilities of what kind of build you'd like to realize are sheer endless. Water cooled rigs, workstations, file server, you name it, anything can be done with this case.

Anidees AI-06 V2 Silent Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Thu, May 19 2016 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today in the eTeknix office we have the brand new Anidees AI-06 V2 mid-tower chassis, which offers up a big revision of their popular AI-06 model. Taking an already robust chassis, adding in more flexible storage solutions, a card reader, improved cooling support, a larger side panel window (on the relevant model) and more. Today, we have the Silent equipped model, which comes fitted with sound dampening materials on the interior, although windowed and standard solid side panel without noise dampening materials edition are also available.

RIOTORO Prism CR1280
     Wed, May 18 2016 | 4:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”I'll start with what I like about the CR1280. The style - while it doesn't break the standard mold for tower cases, it does have a fresh, clean look, and the large side window does it for me. The layout of the top I/O panel is nice too, with adequate spacing of the USB ports (a typical peeve of mine), the separation of the start and reset buttons (another peeve), and the top-facing angle (no USB drives sticking out to get bent over when you walk by). And then there is the size - the CR1280 can handle an extended ATX (eATX) motherboard, supports liquid cooling and long GPUs, and it has decent hard drive capacity. Speaking of liquid cooling, you have mounting space for a top 360mm radiator, a front 240mm radiator, and a rear 120mm radiator. From a functionality perspective, the absence of optical drive bays really opens the case up. The CR1280 has great airflow and the ability to control the fan speed is a plus. Fan speed control is at the tip of your finger. Need some more cooling, or maybe you want a little more peace and quiet? Just push the button. The grommet size and locations are well planned and contribute greatly to the clean cable management.”

Cooler Master Maker 5 Chassis Review
     Tue, May 17 2016 | 3:13P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today is a very special day here at eTeknix, not only for us but also for Cooler Master, who just revealed their new flagship chassis, the Cooler Master Maker 5, the latest and hopefully greatest incarnation of their reimagined “maker” series of products. Following on from the massively successful Master Case 5 and Master Case Pro 5, the latter of which we use for our own eTeknix office rig! The Maker series looks set to dial-up every aspect we loved about this chassis to 11; bigger, better, more features, and beyond!

Phanteks Eclipse P400S Case Review
     Mon, May 16 2016 | 5:38P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Phanteks jumped into the case market not that long ago and since then has really made a name for themselves. Their Evolv series happens to be one of my favorite case series to date. Many Phanteks’ cases sit in the mid-range in terms of price. They typically sit in the $100-$200 range, which is fine for most enthusiasts, but no everyone is going to spend that on a case. Phanteks knows this and has launched the Eclipse series. Right now it is comprised of two cases, the P400 ($69.99) and P400S ($79.99). Today we will be taking a look at the P400S, which is the silent version of the case so it has many sound-dampening features. The case also has room for long graphics cards, water cooling support, easy installation, and lots of room inside. Let’s jump in and see what the Eclipse P400S is all about!"

Corsair SF600 @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, May 16 2016 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
By now if you have been around LanOC on the review side of things as well as our LAN events you will have noticed that I love small form factor builds. I’ve gone on and on about them many times when covering all of the unique components that have been coming out for them. When it comes to feeding your new tiny build with power you used to have just two options. You could build a tiny build and use an adapter to run a laptop power adapter or you could shoe horn in the smallest ATX power supply you could fit. The laptop PSU option was limited in wattage basically eliminating the possibility of a powerful build and going ATX gave you the power but they take up a lot of space. Those of you who have dug into prebuilt PCs have most likely seen some of the FlexATX PSU’s, well SFX is a small standard form factor version of that. Over the past few years Silverstone has been the only option in SFX power supplies with enough power and modular options, but that has changed. Today I’m going to take a peek at the Corsair SF600 and see how it compares.

Zalman Z9 Neo White Case Review
     Sat, May 14 2016 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Zalman has been a little quiet lately. There have been no real major releases from them in a while, but today we have one of their new products in the Z9 Neo PC Case. This case fits in the budget category as it is only $68.50 at our favorite online retailer. Unlike many other budget cases the Z9 Neo has a lot to offer. For starters it ships with 5 included fans, has room for long graphics cards, liquid cooling options, a full power supply cover, room for up to six hard drives, and a nice side panel window to show off all of your hardware inside. Zalman sent us over the white version to check out today. Check out the last page of this review to see how you can win one of these cases for yourself! Let’s jump in and see what the Z9 Neo is all about."

Case Mod Friday: Exsectus
     Thu, May 12 2016 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have Maki role's "Exsectus" build. Here is what he had to say about it, "I'd like to present "Exsectus". This was my entry into the Thermaltake UK Modding Trophy. Exsectus in this case meaning cut from, which I thought appropriate given how much of the structure and watercooling is cut from a thick acrylic plate and from the original case.""

Razer BlackWidow Ultimate 2016 Review
     Tue, May 10 2016 | 5:16P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The BlackWidow is a gaming keyboard that gamers everywhere, at some point, would have had a look at over the past 6 years. The Ultimate 2016 edition has had a complete overhaul in a ground up redesign that represents a more 'raw' edition to the BlackWidow series. What is meant by this, is that the backlighting is limited to 'Razer Green', though it now features the advanced lighting effects of the Chroma range. This version features Razer's custom 'green' switches that were originally a modified Kailh Blue switch, however, in our previous outing with the BlackWidow Chroma these switches were rated at 60million key strokes, here that number has been moved up to 80million. This could be down to a more refined production/process or control by Razer (see video below) thus giving a higher reliability rating.

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.

Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV ATX Tempered Glass Edition Review
     Sat, May 07 2016 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV Tempered Glass Edition takes the design one step further by replacing the standard side panels with shaded tempered glass and improving the LED lighting system to support 10 colors and Phanteks LED lighting strips.

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.

Raijintek Styx Case Review
     Sun, May 01 2016 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Raijintek Styx is the next PC-Case in the Technic3D office. The Styx supports Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX motherboards and have place for 2x 120mm Cooling-Fans or 2x 140mm. We will check this and many more in the following Review."

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!"

     Thu, Apr 28 2016 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we take a look at the CR1280 Prism full tower ATX case from Riotoro, a relatively new name in the US enthusiast PC market founded by former Corsair and NVIDIA employees. The CR1280 boasts itself as the world's first fully RGB case with customizable LED illumination options controlled straight from the front panel. In addition to the eye candy, it also offers enough room for up to an E-ATX motherboards and four dual slot graphics cards measuring up to 400 mm long.
