Cougar Archon Mid-Tower Gaming Case Review
     Fri, Aug 30 2013 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The mid-tower PC case market is a very crowded segment, so differentiating yourself from the competition is what is going to be required in order to become a successful product. Even the sub-category of "gaming" mid-tower PC case is becoming populated with dozens of choices. When we drill even further down to the sub-sub-category of "budget" "gaming" mid-tower PC case, the choices begin to thin considerably. The Cougar Archon mid-tower PC case is being marketed as "the cutting edge gaming case" -- a very strong statement for a budget case with an MSRP of $49.99 (priced on Newegg.com 8/19, $3.99 for shipping). We would like to thank Cougar for providing the review sample. Let's give the Cougar Archon a closer look, and see how it is to build a system into.

Thermaltake Chaser A71 Full Tower PC Case Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Aug 29 2013 | 6:46P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thermaltake is constantly revamping their case line to provide users options. The original Chaser MK-I full tower was popular among enthusiasts; Thermaltake?s response was evident at CES 2013 when they expanded the Chaser line. Continuing with the style of the MK-I, they have released the A31, A41 and now the A71 Chaser cases."

Cooler Master N600 PC Case Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Aug 29 2013 | 5:46P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While Cooler Master has been manufacturing various computer peripherals for many years, they are constantly looking at the market and designing new cases to fit various needs. Recently, they have introduced a new line of cases, the ?N? series. So far there are three cases in this series, the N200, N400 and N600. Legit Review recently took a look at the N400, now we will be taking a look at the N600."

Enermax Coenus (ECA3290A) Mid-Tower Case Review @ HiTech Legion
     Thu, Aug 29 2013 | 5:43P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Enermax Coenus is an ideal platform for building a contemporary gaming machine on a budget. The Coenus can accommodate tall enthusiast-class air coolers and even has an adaptable HDD cage, allowing for some room when installing long graphics cards such as the GeForce GTX 690 or AMD Radeon HD 7990. //There are also plenty of cooling options inside with room for two 120mm fans for the front intake, two 120mm fans or one 180mm fan at the top, one 120mm fan in the rear and one 120mm fan at the bottom floor. The Enermax Coenus Advanced comes with two pre-installed fans (one intake and one exhaust) and has better drive mounting support compared to the Basic Coenus which only comes with a single 120mm exhaust fan. Dust filters are included at the bottom and for the front intake of the Coenus to make maintenance easier/."

Cougar Evolution Galaxy Chassis Review
     Thu, Aug 29 2013 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Evolution chassis from Cougar carries a commendable design concept. Installing all the components into the chassis left us with plenty of room to move around internally, and the removable and tool less drive trays make installing any type of drive rather simple.

Thermaltake Chaser A41 Review
     Thu, Aug 29 2013 | 9:50A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The A41 really surprised me. As you can see, these cases are virtually the same during the tests. When I first looked at this case, I admit that I thought for sure that there would be a much larger difference. I really expected a lot of heat build up in the A41. And the Ostrog GT has two 140mm front fans, so certainly it would have to be much cooler, right? Now I`m certainly not disappointed; just surprised. Neither the A41 or the Ostrog has side fans, and as much as I like side fans, having them probably wouldn`t make much difference here. And while I have always had a weakness for cases loaded up with fans, perhaps I need to rethink my More fans! philosophy. Regardless, the airflow of the A41 is just fine."

Cooltek Coolcube Maxi Micro-ATX/Mini-ITX Case
     Thu, Aug 29 2013 | 8:08A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Roughly 5 years ago if someone had asked about my opinion regarding the future of PCs Id never have imagined that 5 years later everything would start to miniaturize for the sake of progress. It`s true that up until this day that i type these lines high-end, enthusiast and enterprise-grade systems are not limited in size in any way but from the somewhat recent announcement by Intel stating that they too will focus all their resources in shrinking everything i don`t think that time will take long to come and whether or not that evolution will turn out to be a good thing only time can tell. However people who wish to have a small PC that can fit even under their TV set need not wait for that time since mini-ITX and micro-ATX mainboards are already half the size of normal ATX ones (and even smaller compared to XL-ATX/EATX) without really lacking much in terms of performance. The only real issue so far has been the limited number of micro-ATX/mini-ITX cases available that can actually take full advantage of what high-end mainboard models have to offer but Cooltek with their latest Coolcube MAXI aims to change that."

Thermaltake Chaser A71 VP400M1W2N Computer Case Review
     Tue, Aug 27 2013 | 4:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As I am sure you are all well aware, the Thermaltake Chaser A71 is not the first chassis in the Chaser Series. Its direct predecessor, the A41, was a mid-tower addition to the Chaser Series that boasted some of the same features that are prevalent in the A71, such as great cooling, tool-less drive bays, and great cable management. And, it is not the first full-tower design in the Chaser Series. That distinction goes to the Chaser MK-1, which shares the same dimensions and has very similar features to the A71, including a top-mounted HDD hot-swap bay. Now, let’s move forward and take a closer look at the Thermaltake Chaser A71.

     Mon, Aug 26 2013 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thermaltake has a serious attitude about supporting the Gamer or E-Sports with it’s TteSports gaming devices and peripherals. To blend in the Thermaltake “COOL all YOUR LIFE” cases with the TteSports line of gaming products Thermaltake has taken up arms in the your gaming world with the Thermaltake Chaser A31 line of mid tower cases.

Aerocool XPredator X3 review: complete mid-range chassis
     Sun, Aug 25 2013 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We liked the Aerocool XPredator X3 chassis. It has a design that stands out from the crowd, without overdoing it. The shell-like vents on the top help the cooling, and look neat. It doesn't lack in features, the build quality and finish are good and the plastic is of decent quality. For this price point, the XPredator X3 provides everything you expect. The fan controllers are a nice extra, along with the external 2.5-inch dock.

InWin G7 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Aug 25 2013 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While most enthusiasts prefer Full Tower cases because of the ample amount of space for things like water-cooling solutions and multiple video card setups, sometimes the sheer size of the cases can be prohibitive as far as portability. Luckily there has always been a healthy market for enthusiast minded Mid Towers. Today we look at the G7 Mid Tower from InWin that promises to offer a great blend of features, performance and quality aimed at DIY enthusiasts. Will it stand tall among quality competition? Lets find out."

Corsair Raptor M30 Review
     Sat, Aug 24 2013 | 4:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Raptor M30 is the new entry level gaming mouse from Corsair. It uses an optical sensor Avago ADNS-3090 with up to 4000 DPI, the same you usually find on higher end models like the M40 from the same manufacturer. The Raptor M30 also features a competitive price tag, which is reason enough for us to find out wether the rest is also convincing or not.

Corsair Obsidian 350D Case Review
     Sat, Aug 24 2013 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Branded the Obsidian 350D, the newcomer crams its more expensive sibling's features into an affordable microATX package and sports the same clean, black brushed-aluminum finish, handy tool-free design and innovative cable management. While the base 350D is available for around $90, a second edition goes for $110 that adds a side window. So how does Corsair budget Obsidian fair?

SilverStone Petit PT13 Case
     Sat, Aug 24 2013 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The SilverStone Petit PT13 Case is one of the smallest Mini-ITX cases on the market. It comes is a black color, swing-up aluminum top, lots of ventilation & two USB2 ports. It can be orientated horizontally, vertically, or attached to the back on a monitor using the included VESA brackets. It's the perfect case for a tiny Home Theater PC build." ~3dGameMan.com

NZXT H630 Silent Ultra Tower Computer Case Review
     Sat, Aug 24 2013 | 9:06A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NZXT has dabbled in quiet cases before (Hush, H2). While I don?t personally have experience with those particular chassis, I?ve gathered the attempts in the past have left consumers wanting. It appears a revived Phantom line has also provided another opportunity for NZXT Technologies to tackle the ?silent? segment once again ? can NZXT bring the H series of chassis to new levels with the H630 Silent Ultra Tower Computer Case? Benchmark Reviews has a chance to answer this question."

News: Corsairs Obsidian Series 350D case reviewed
     Sat, Aug 24 2013 | 7:11A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The latest enclosure from Corsair is a microATX specimen with all of the same trappings and conveniences as Corsair`s full-sized ATX cases. Is it as good as it sounds?"
