Antec GX500 Mid Tower Case Review
     Fri, Mar 13 2015 | 12:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are going to take a look at one of Antec’s value cases, the GX500. This is targeted at those users who are looking for a capable chassis on a tight budget. Antec has designed this case from the ground up for gamers, so we are interested to see the new design.

SilverStone Raven RV05 Enclosure Review: The Raven Returns to Form
     Fri, Mar 13 2015 | 11:24A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 90 motherboard orientation with the Raven RV05 provides what would seem to be an ideal situation for air cooling. Anchoring the thermal solution are the large 180mm fans at the bottom of the case, which are directed upward to pull air up through the bottom vents and out the top of the enclosure. These fans are controlled with 3-position switch, allowing the user to select between increased cooling performance or lower noise output. So how did the RV05 perform? While I would typically compare an enclosure against other samples with the same hardware, I used a new test platform for the RV05 review and haven`t generated any comparison data yet. As I set out to do this I had a thought: what if the Raven`s cooling performance was good enough to rival the temps I`m used to on an open test bench?"

BitFenix Aegis Core MicroATX Case
     Thu, Mar 12 2015 | 7:23P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although we weren't impressed with BitFenix's Shinobi and Colossus cases back in 2011, the company earned our respect last summer when we used its Phenom mATX. It was a seriously slick mATX case that looked great while accommodating high-end hardware. After seeing the quality BitFenix is capable of, we jumped at the opportunity to test the Aegis, a new arrival with some unique features like a customizable 2.8" 240x320 icon display, first seen on the Pandora PC case.

NZXT Source 340
     Thu, Mar 12 2015 | 7:22P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NZXT Source 340 aims to draw the masses away from picking elaborate-looking counterparts for 70 USD by showing them how sleek and beautiful a case can look without breaking the bank. Available in black or white, the Source 340 utilizes metal panels all around - a first for a case in this price bracket.

In-Win D Frame Mini PC Chassis Review
     Thu, Mar 12 2015 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In-Win manufactures a curious mix of PC cases. In the past we have seen basic (but worthy) Mini-ITX cases such as the BL641 and more recently the GR One gaming tower and GT1 (as seen in our Falcon PC review). Then we come to the In-Win Signature Products which include the £320 D-Frame and this £249.95 D-Frame Mini. It’s an open system that is constructed from welded aluminium tubes with smoked tempered glass panels on both side. The result is a visual delight. The chassis we saw is black with red silicon bumpers. Alternatively you can have red with black bumpers or orange with blue bumpers which may sound foul but actually looks amazing.

Silent Base 800 mid tower case
     Wed, Mar 11 2015 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have the be quiet! Silent Base 800 mid tower case on our review bench today. As you will expect from the manufacturer and product name, the Silent Base 800 touts sound insulation during operation as a key feature but it also promises unique airflow control for components inside. We put the case to the test to see how it fares in both noise level and cooling performance.

Thermaltake Core V1 mini-ITX Chassis Review
     Wed, Mar 11 2015 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thermaltake are easily one of the best chassis manufacturers around. This is especially true for those who want to utilize the latest and greatest technology in their system builds, even more so with those who love to modify their rigs. Thermaltake has proven time and time again that they’re able to provide innovative and practical features that can help you build a better high-end gaming rig, with extensive support for advanced features such as water cooling.

3-Way Budget Mid-Tower Shootout
     Tue, Mar 10 2015 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mid-towers are by far the most popular case form factor, supporting most full-sized hardware including the ever abundant ATX motherboards and power supplies, while typically costing only $50 to $75. In most situations, anything in that range will be adequate for a standard build, but Silverstone, Corsair and In Win have launched new contenders that are said to deliver the build quality, design, features and performance of pricier models without breaking the bank.

Corsair Carbide 100R Silent review
     Tue, Mar 10 2015 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Carbide series of PC cases from Corsair have been updated with the budget 100R and 100R silent, Corsair markets the product being entry-level, and with a 50 to 60 USD pricetag, we can not argue on that. These chassis remain to be good looking but really are feature rich products. Keywords here would be a dark design chassis, tool free, decent space and nice airflow with the help of a small fan controller.

Silverstone Sugo SG13Q Review
     Mon, Mar 09 2015 | 4:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sugo SG13Q from Silverstone appears to be a rather interesting mini-ITX case. Despite the small size it offers plenty of space, which means you can install mid-range graphics cards as well as standard ATX power supplies. Therefore this small cube is perfectly suitable for HTPC builds and apart from that you could even create a very small LAN party rig.

Inateck TPB-IM iPad mini Sleeve Case Review @ Tech-Reviews.co.uk
     Sun, Mar 08 2015 | 9:29A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Whether you?re a case person or not when it comes to covering or protecting your tablet having something suitable to carry your tablet around in is a must. With so many different types of cases and sleeves available it?s difficult to know which to pick. The Inateck TPB-IM iPad mini sleeve could be the answer for you.?"

Aerocool Strike-X Cube Micro-ATX Chassis Review
     Sun, Mar 08 2015 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Aerocool is well-known for their funky chassis designs and it looks like today will be no exception. Their latest creation is the Strike-X Cube, a micro-ATX form factor edition of their popular Strike-X chassis series. Aerocool have proven time and time again that they can cram an incredible amount of features into their products at a very competitive price and we’re expecting a similar performance from them today. The Strike-X Cube chassis may be relatively small, but its capabilities are anything but. You’ll find the chassis is capable of housing a Micro-ATX motherboard, two graphics cards of up to 345mm, tall CPU coolers up to 187mm, up to a 280mm water cooling radiator, a built-in fan controller, removable storage bays and more!

Antec Nineteen Hundred
     Sat, Mar 07 2015 | 12:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Antec Nineteen Hundred takes the frame of the Eleven Hundred and pimps it with a bottom compartment, more I/O, extra fans, a splash of color, and an updated exterior. But is this hard-drive swallowing behemoth worth the extra cash you have to throw at it to call it your own?

Lian-Li PC-05S Wall Mountable Mini-ITX Chassis Review
     Sat, Mar 07 2015 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lian-Li is a master of aluminium chassis design. Time and time again they’ve created incredible chassis that are works of art as much as they are practical, high-performance juggernauts. Today is a pretty special day for Lian-Li as it marks the launch of their latest fanciful chassis, the PC-05S, which is rather unique in the sense that it can be used as a horizontal HTPC style chassis, mounted vertically on a special stand for desktop use, or even more special than that, you can mount it on a wall! The chassis modding scene has seen wall mounted chassis already, as there are a lot of people out there who love to show off their rigs and what better way than putting it right up on display where everyone can see it. Of course, this is a pretty specialist product, which isn’t going to appeal to everyone out there, but for those that want to take a break from the standard chassis form factors that sit under your desk, the PC-05S is certainly a breath of fresh air. The PC-O5S is one of four chassis in the wall-mountable range from Lian-Li, of which there will support for different hardware, including water cooling support with the 05S, 06S and 07S models. The chassis I have at my disposal today is the mini-ITX model, which comes with support for a slim optical drive, removable hard drive bays, room for many of the largest graphics cards on the market, an SFX power supply and more.

NZXT S340 Mid Tower PC Case Review
     Fri, Mar 06 2015 | 4:42P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As with most computer components, PC cases come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes and of course prices. The key is finding the right case at a price that’s right for you. Today I have the pleasure of looking at a new chassis from NZXT that is available from Amazon for $69.99 shipped, the S340. The NZXT S340 is a sleek looking chassis that isn’t going to break the bank.

Corsair Graphite Series 780T Review
     Fri, Mar 06 2015 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the new Corsair Graphite Series 780T full tower PC case. The aesthetics are fairly impressive with a big design, large see through window, latched doors, magnetic top and front mesh panels and even a fan controller. The 780T is one of x-factor products really, and will get embraced by the PC enthusiast community.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.

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.
