Cougar Spike Micro-ATX PC Case Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Mar 10 2013 | 8:43A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At the end of the day the Cougar Spike micro-ATX gaming case is a great value for $24.99 shipped after a $5 mail-in rebate at Newegg. If Cougar can produce and sell the Spike for so little it makes you wonder what kind of markup is on the other gaming cases out there. The Cougar Spike has is all blacked out, has a USB 3.0 front panel port and room for four case fans. There really isn`t much not to like about this case and unless you have a ton of hard drives or solid-state drives, the Spike should do the trick..."

Fractal Design Define XL R2 Review @ Vortez
     Sat, Mar 09 2013 | 9:53A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new XL R2 is not that dissimilar to XL but in true Fractal Design fashion, little tweaks have been made here and there to build on the success of a firm favourite. Minimalism continues to feature highly with this new addition but there are some new features which include a fresh new layout which boasts oodles of space and silence as a forte."

NZXT Phantom 630 Ultra Tower - BCCHardware
     Thu, Mar 07 2013 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
All in all, I think this case is pretty decent. There has been a lot of thought put into the modular design that can be utilized by anyone. Whether you`re looking for an air cooled case, or you`re planning on running a wild, water cooling setup - this case can fit your needs. Novices and hardcore enthusiasts alike will find that the NZXT Phantom 630 case makes their build process smooth and easy. . ."

BitFenix Ghost Midi Tower Review
     Wed, Mar 06 2013 | 10:28A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few days ago while i was out with a some colleagues one of them pointed out to me that we haven`t really focused in PC case reviews, at least not as much as we should have based on the how many get released per year. Well i have to admit that i was left quite puzzled since in just 11 months of online presence we`ve reviewed a grand total of 16 PC cases which at least for me is not a very small number especially since it`s not our only focus group. Still just in case some of our readers feel the same we have put in several requests for some of the latest PC Cases to hit the market and hopefully we will deliver most of those reviews by the end of March (and just in time for our 1 year birthday). So today on the table we have the latest Ghost Midi Tower PC Case by BitFenix."

Case Mod Friday: Project Steampunkd TJ11 @ ThinkComputers.org
     Wed, Mar 06 2013 | 10:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For this mod I used a Silverstone TJ11. To many, this is the most coveted full tower water cooling case to own and mod. I decided to do a Steampunk mod because there are not very many out there. Not saying I could out do any of them, I just thought it would be a really fun thing to try. Most of my ideas came from looking at photos online of clothing, jewelry and just old Steampunk style photos. I also did not play very much of this mod. I just played it by ear as I went. Overall I am very pleased with how it came out and I fully plan on doing another one in the future."

Asrock debut's a nice chassis at CeBIT 2013
     Tue, Mar 05 2013 | 1:17P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

What do you get if you cross a creative consultancy with expertise in automotive and industrial design with the leaders of motherboard designing? Hint hint, it’s covered elegantly in crimson and black, bearing muscular yet smooth angles. BMW Group DesignworksUSA and ASRock is here with a definitive answer – an icon like gaming PC. “You just wait. This collaboration between BMW Group DesignworksUSA and ASRock is totally going to knock your socks off and show up on your Dear Santa letters!” exclaimed James Lee, vice president of ASRock.

Sonja Schiefer, Director of Design, Munich Studio, BMW DesignworksUSA , stated, “Our goal was to create desirability and iconic differentiation in a mini PC. We reached this goal thanks to a design language focused on superlative and a solution that was very much an exaggerated mode of expression.”


Nanoxia Deep Silence 2 Midi Tower PC Case Review
     Mon, Mar 04 2013 | 1:17P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The introduction of high quality PC cases with lots of features, spacious interiors and designs to match the above from the top manufacturers such as Lian-Li, Corsair, Cooler Master, Thermaltake and Silverstone is something that all of us more or less expect from companies that have been around the block for many years and pretty much know what consumers want. However what is least expected by everyone is when a brand new manufacturer emerges and manages almost with no delay to design and manufacture a PC Case that can rival those manufactured by the leaders in the field. Nanoxia is not really new since they`ve been around for quite a few years manufacturing top notch fans and fan controllers but it wasn`t until a few months back that they started the design and manufacture of PC cases such as the Deep Silence 1 we reviewed a while back. Well it seems that they are here to stay so after the very successful test run of their Deep Silence 1 Midi Tower PC Case they released the Deep Silence 2."

Gateway SX2380-UR318 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Mar 04 2013 | 9:25A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gateway SX2380-UR318 is a great choice for the price-conscious PC buyer. It has a lot of the features that were optional only a few years ago, like DX11-compatible graphics, 1TB hard drive, dual core AMD A6-5400K processor, 6GB of memory, and dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi."

Nanoxia Deep Silence 2 Chassis Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Sun, Mar 03 2013 | 1:17P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
But a company can`t survive on just one case; you have to give the people options. And that is just what Nanoxia has done. Enter the Deep Silence 2 aka DS2. The DS1 has much of the styling the DS1 has but Nanoxia has simplified some things to make the case meeker and a little more cost friendly. We will point out many of the differences as we walk through the DS2."

Fractal Design Node 304 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Mar 03 2013 | 9:25A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Being in the LAN scene, mobility is something that is important to most of us. The solution for some is a laptop, for others it is a sling for their tower and dealing with the grunt work that goes into lugging around an entire system. More and more however folks are turning to smaller form factor motherboards that will fit into LAN boxes. Fractal has sent over one of their Mini ITX cases that can perform as a LAN boxe, the Node 304. Lets take a look and see how it stacks up against the competition."

Fractal Design Define R4 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Mar 02 2013 | 9:25A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to cases there are two different types. The first is the flashy cases that are meant to grab everyones attention and show off all the cool hardware inside. The second is the sleek professional looking case that is all about style and function. When it comes to Fractal Design I always seem to place them in this second category. They dont make anything flashy or over the top, but their cases are always functional, cool, spacious, and what I like to call business sexy. Their Define cases have always been a perfect example of this, today we are going to take a look at the Define R4, their lastest version."

Fractal Design Node 304 Mini-ITX Case @ Benchmark Reviews
     Thu, Feb 28 2013 | 10:35A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Everything is getting smaller. With today`s emphasis on efficiency and mobility, and processors that do even more with much less power consumption, it is a trend that will probably continue. With the success of enclosures such as the BitFenix Prodigy and Coolermaster`s Elite 120 Advanced, it is great to see other manufacturers embrace this trend and put their own innovations and ideas into the small form factor market. Choices are always a good thing for a customer, and Fractal Design brings their own blend of ITX with the Node 304. In the following pages, Benchmark Reviews will take a closer look at the ideas featured in the Fractal Design Node 304 FD-CA-NODE-304-BL Mini-ITX tower computer case..."

Fractal Design Node 605 HTPC Chassis Review
     Thu, Feb 28 2013 | 9:23A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If a SFF gaming cube isn`t your style, the Node series has another card to play with the Node 605 for the home theatre crowd."
