Win D-Frame Mini Review
     Mon, Dec 01 2014 | 6:40P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Of all the weird and wonderful cases we saw in 2013, In Win's D-Frame remains most memorable. The D-Frame Mini takes the original design and shrinks it down to accommodate the now popular Mini-ITX form factor. Despite the reduction in size the case can now support cooling radiators and models as large as 240mm, the graphics card length has been extended from 330mm to 340mm, and the chassis can rest on one of six sides rather than just two.

Cooltek W2 case
     Mon, Dec 01 2014 | 6:30P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Cooltek W2 is a bigger version of the W1, able to hold an XL-ATX motherboard and fully sized components. It comes equipped with three 140 mm fans, the same high-quality aluminum shell, and an excellent mix of drive bays - including an external 5.25" drive in the rear. Clocking in at a good 20% less than the Carbide Air 540, the Cooltek W2 is an excellent alternative for those looking for a clean full-sized cube chassis.

NZXT Source 340 Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Mon, Dec 01 2014 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this year we brought you news of the new NZXT Source 340 (S340), the new budget friendly mid-tower from one of the industries leading chassis manufacturers. Now we’re very happy to bring you the full review of the latest chassis from NZXT. The S340 is the latest edition to the Source range, and there have been some pretty big changes to the general design. Gone are the sweeping curves and large sections of mesh ventilation. Now we have bold flat panels and a very minimalist look that has more in common with the H440 than it does with previous entries to the Source series. Priced at just under 70 EUR, the S340 does have a focus on being more affordable. However, NZXT has really pulled out all the stops to pack this chassis full of unique features, high quality components and more to make it incredible value for money. The chassis comes fitted with dust filters, a large side panel window, high-quality fans, a PSU shroud and more.

Silverstone RVZ01 Review
     Mon, Dec 01 2014 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Raven RVZ01 is the latest miniITX case from SilverStone. The product features a unique design and since it's a SilverStone case, it should also come with impeccable build quality. This case is compatible with ITX motherboard and SFX PSUs but despite the fact, that it is very compact you can install high-end graphics cards. Overall this sounds like a very interesting product

Thermaltake Core V1 mITX Chassis Review
     Mon, Dec 01 2014 | 12:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Small form factor chassis are fast becoming the modders norm with a full range of well-designed and almost niche market chassis being released. Gone are the days of being exclusive to HTPCs and welcome the days of high powered mITX rigs and Steam Boxes. With the surge in high quality and gaming focused small form factor motherboards, there has never been a better time to go small. Thermaltake was founded in Taiwan in 1999. Thermaltake manufactured the world’s first turbine cooler ‘Golden Orb’ for Intel Pentium processors. Thermaltake was keen to develop new products, and after years of research, it launched the world’s first liquid-cooler for CPUs in 2004."

NZXT (Source) S340 Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Sun, Nov 30 2014 | 10:35A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not too many cases are that well known from the Source chassis series, but that is about to change as we review the stunning NZXT S340 right here."

NZXT S340 Case Review
     Sat, Nov 29 2014 | 12:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The NZXT S340 is a really clean mid-tower case, with no external drive bays and where the power supply and hard disk drives are placed hidden from the user's view. It has a big transparent windows at the left panel, where only the motherboard area is visible. Let's take a look at this very unique case."

Fractal Design Node 804 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Nov 29 2014 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the small form factor market growing we are finally starting to see a nice variety of case designs available for people who are looking to build Mini-ITX and Micro-ATX PCs. Fractal has been producing a variety of cases for that market basically from their inception. When they introduced their Node 804 I was extremely excited about it. Not only did they keep things fairly small, but they also went with a split design that I am a huge fan of working with on cases. What I mean by a split design is that the power supply and some of the components fit behind the motherboard tray leaving the motherboard side of the case clean. Add to that Fractals typical clean styling and we have the makings of a great case. Well today we have the chance to dig in and check the Node 804 out and find out if it is as great as it looks.

Fractal Design Define R5 Mid-Tower Case Review
     Fri, Nov 28 2014 | 6:45P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fractal Design is probably best know for it?s Define series chassis lineup, cases designed for high performance while keeping a low noise level and budget price tag. The current version, the Define R4, was much praised for its customization options, cooling performance, and noise control. However, at the beginning of last year NZXT released their H440 chassis, a case that was called the ?Define R4 Killer,? because of it?s enhanced cooling options, quiet operation, and stunning looks. But now Fractal Design have given their answer to the H440, and it?s a big one ? the Define R5."

Thermaltake Core V71 Review @ ocaholic
     Fri, Nov 28 2014 | 1:12P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The V71 is the latest full-tower case from Thermaltake, which belongs to their Core series. First shown at first at Computex 2014, Core V71 is a case able to accommodate big water cooling systems and high-end components. This model is compatible with 360mm and 420mm radiators. The strength of this model is definitely the airflow but V71 features is also tool-less system, features a modular design and much more. "

Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV Review
     Thu, Nov 27 2014 | 2:43P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This brings me to my next complaint, which is the rear 5.25 bay. Having this bay is still very necessary and the fact that the optical drive still has plenty of life left in it. In fact, trends come and go, but the certain design choices are still relevant in future use. Until all software comes on USB sticks, the optical drive will not become obsolete. I`m glad Phanteks has left the option for a 5.25 bay, even if it`s not in the correct place. This issue I have is very similar to the I/O ports where placement of the chassis comes increasing hard to think of places for it to sit. I feel the design team could have also found a way to place the bay in the front, even if it was just an optional setup. Of course the front panel design would have to be changed, but it would solve two problems that should be considered when buying any chassis."

Thermaltake Core V51 Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Thu, Nov 27 2014 | 1:12P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The more compact sibling to the Core V71 has arrived. With a similar aesthetic, Thermaltake`s Core V51 mid-tower case is loaded in features for its size."

Corsair Obsidian 250D @ techPowerUp
     Wed, Nov 26 2014 | 6:45P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have reviewed most Obsidian cases in the past - with a few exceptions. One being the the tiny but capable 250D, the smallest chassis in this family of enclosures. This review of the Corsair Obsidian 250D will show whether Corsair managed to shrink its size to the smallest possible denominator without compromising on any of the aspects that make Obsidian enclosures so very appealing."

Fractal Design Core 3300 @ techPowerUp
     Mon, Nov 24 2014 | 10:07A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Core X3 series, Fractal Design`s entry level line of cases, now includes the Core 3300 looking to deliver what the enthusiast on a budget is gunning for. Throwing itself into the hardest-fought-over case segment, it`ll be interesting to see whether it manages to deliver on the core elements it needs to capture the hearts of its buyers."
