Cougar MX500 @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Jan 10 2014 | 8:31A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just in time for Christmas we have a mid-tower for you, this time from Cougar. The MX500 promises to be a case with a gaming centric design and the capability to handle just about any ATX/mATX setup you could want to throw at it with an array of possible drive setups. With the promise or flexibility and expandability the MX500 looks to target gamers and ever since we got our hands on their Vortex PWM fans we knew Cougar was capable of making quality products. Lets see if they can continue to impress us."

BitFenix Phenom mITX Case Review
     Thu, Jan 09 2014 | 8:59A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When the BitFenix Prodigy was released last year, it expanded on the idea of how much performance could fit in a small case. There were some users (me included) that felt the original Prodigy was just a little too big for an ITX box ? responding to customer feedback, BitFenix wanted to provide a more streamlined option for those users that wanted all that the Prodigy had to offer in a more compact package. With essentially the same internal layout as the original Prodigy, the new BitFenix Phenom (model BFC-PHE-300-WWXKK-RP) caters to those that want something a little more minimalistic with airflow taking a backseat to looks and finesse. Benchmark Reviews is ready to look inside and see how much of the Prodigy legacy stays intact with the BitFenix Phenom ITX case."

Silverstone Raven Z RVZ01 Mini-ITX Case - The Steam Machine Chassis
     Wed, Jan 08 2014 | 4:58P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are on the hunt for a Mini-ITX chassis that supports powerful components and would prefer a case design that looks at home in your A/V rack, then Silverstone`s Raven Z RVZ01 is definitely a great option to consider. I am looking forward to upgrading our build with a higher wattage power supply and higher performance graphics card to concrete its place on my shelf with the Xbox One and PS4. It`s not a perfect design, but we have yet to find a SFF case that is."

Corsair Mini-ITX Obsidian Series 250D Case - CES 2014
     Tue, Jan 07 2014 | 1:14P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com
Corsair's Obsidian Series 250D performance Mini-ITX PC case brings the sophisticated and minimalist design of the Obsidian series to a new smaller size. The 250D is Corsair’s first chassis built exclusively for the increasingly popular Mini-ITX form factor. Brushed aluminum and solid steel construction combine with a compact frame that refuses to settle between size, looks or flexibility.

www.pcstats.com

Corsair’s smallest case to date, the Obsidian 250D means your PC no longer needs to dominate your desk, instead easily fitting on a book case, sitting beside your HDTV or carried away to a LAN party or dorm. Despite its diminutive size 250D supports not only many of the more popular performance Mini ITX motherboards, but also a wide range of full-size high-performance components, including many of Corsair’s Hydro Series liquid CPU coolers, allowing users to push their PC to the limit. The 250D also continues the elegant aesthetic legacy of the Obsidian series, combining a brushed aluminum fascia and sleek panels with a roof-mounted window to reveal the hardware inside.

www.pcstats.com

“Thanks to the increasingly high performance of Mini-ITX boards, it is now possible to build an extremely powerful yet compact system," said Xavier Lauwaert, Director of Product Marketing at Corsair. “The Obsidian 250D is made for users who want a smaller PC but don’t want to limit their hardware choices. With support for large liquid coolers, full-length graphics cards and full-size modular power supplies, 250D is Mini-ITX without compromise."

Cooler Master N200, N300, N500 & N600 review
     Sun, Jan 05 2014 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master has a series of affordable chassis called the N series. They're supposed to cool well and are made for liquid cooling including 240 mm radiators, perhaps making them a good and affordable option for a powerful rig. We tested four N series models and compared them to 28 other chassis in the same price segment.

Fractal Node 304 White Computer Case Review
     Wed, Jan 01 2014 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While visiting Computex Taipei 2013, the MadShrimps crew encountered a lot of mITX-ready cases at the different enclosure manufacturer's booths. Fractal Design, Sweden's leading case manufacturer seemed to have picked up the trend too and sent us the little Node 304 Cube. Two 304 Node versions are available based on the color scheme; either opt for the classic black one or go for the more sparkling and stylish white version. Also big thanks to Gigabyte for sending us a mITX Z87 board to allow us to finalize our build. Without any further ado, let's open the box.

Fractal Design Node 304 Mini-ITX Case

The Design Node 304 is an evolution of Fractal's earlier Mini ITX NAS Case geared primarily for server duty. How well does it manage the noise and vibration of six 3.5" drives? Can this modest 20 litre case keep the system cool enough?

In Win 904 Tower
     Tue, Dec 31 2013 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“In Win has just released their brand new 904 case. This full aluminum tower features tempered glass sides and a solid frame. This allows for stability by design while giving your PC that high-tech, industrial look that’s popular. It also comes with a hidden ODD bay and four USB 3.0 ports. It only supports two internal fans and limited radiator sizes, but perhaps that’s to be expected to create this work of art. The split design in the back assists in managing your cables at the rear going to your I/O board, completing the package.”

Fractal Design ARC Mini R2 Case Review
     Tue, Dec 31 2013 | 8:59A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Next, there is included support for larger video cards and CPU coolers, making it a very welcome addition to this small chassis. Lastly is the water cooling support, which to me it is a dud because you lose either one or both bays when installing anything other than a 240mm radiator on top. The reason why I kept it in the Pros was because it`s very uncommon to support a custom liquid cooling setup in the realm of small chassis, but Fractal Design added it anyways, even if it might be less than practical. It does not hurt the chassis in any way by including it, so it is a warm welcome in my eyes."
