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?"

Corsair Obsidian Series 350D Micro ATX Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Aug 23 2013 | 7:31A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I have always been a fan of Corsair cases. Corsair just gets it, their cases are elegant and dont have any of the extras that users will simply not use. The Obsidian Series is the top of the line case series from Corsair and today we are taking a look at the Obsidian Series 350D case. The idea of this case is simple, take all of the best parts of the very popular 800D and 900D cases and put that into a micro ATX case. Micro ATX builds are great as many micro ATX motherboards offer the same features as full sized ATX motherboards, yet take up less space. This means a smaller case to lug around to LAN parties. Is the Corsair Obsidian Series 350D case perfect for your next micro ATX build? Read on as we find out!"

SilverStone Raven RV04 Case Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Fri, Aug 23 2013 | 1:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For a number of years now SilverStone have been making a selection of cases which are built to a high standard but have some rather unique twists to them. Take the Fortress FT02 that we reviewed in 2010 as an example. It was a case which offered a rotated motherboard install with the add-in cards hanging vertically rather than running horizontally. Now they have returned to the market with the fourth revision of the Raven case. It completely rotates the motherboard so that our CPU is close to the base of the case and has more than a few high end features. So let`s take a look at it along with one of SilverStones new liquid coolers."

Rosewill FBM-01 Mini-Tower Case Review @ HiTech Legion
     Thu, Aug 22 2013 | 9:07P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Rosewill FBM-01 is a basic case that can house a micro-ATX motherboard. The FBM-01`s body is crafted from SECC steel and measures 6.89 x 13.86 x 13.78. A pair of 5.25 external drives as well as a 3.5 external drive can be installed while an additional pair of 3.5 drives can be installed internally. Since it can house a micro-ATX form factor, the FBM-01 has four expansion slots for discrete graphics cards or other devices. Users have an option between a black or white color with glossy front face finish. For cooling purposes, a 120mm intake fan is pre-installed in the front while an 80mm exhaust fan is attached at the rear./"

NZXT H230 Case
     Thu, Aug 22 2013 | 5:05P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The NZXT H230 Case is a mid tower case that comes in black and white, includes 2 120mm fans, there are two USB3 ports, has noise dampening material on both side panels, tool-less drive design and much more. If you're in the market for a quiet build, it's an excellent case for the money." ~3dGameMan.com

Lian Li PC-9N Review
     Thu, Aug 22 2013 | 7:11A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The CPU and GPU idle temps for the PC-9N were as expected. Under a load is where things surprised me. I might have to rethink my view point on multiple fans. I really expected this case with just one front intake and rear exhaust to run hot. More fans are better, right? Well, not so fast. Both the CPU and GPU were kept at the low end, in fact, for the CPU it was the lowest of the cases I have tested. No top fans. No side fans. And the front 140mm fan is pulling air through what seems to me to be a rather small front vent panel. Clearly the case has adequate air flow. And with fewer fans, it is on the quiet end."

Fractal Design Define XL R2 Computer Case
     Wed, Aug 21 2013 | 12:01P | Cases | PermaLink

This case is all about silence, performance, and modular design. That being said, I am inclined to give this the “Modders-Inc. Must Have” award.

Cooler Master HAF XB PC Case Review @ TestFreaks
     Wed, Aug 21 2013 | 9:24A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today for review I have a case or chassis from Cooler Master called the HAF XB. This is a smaller style case, what might be called a lanbox but its not just for gaming of course as you can use it for anything. What makes the HAF XB really special is the fact that it also doubles as a test bench. Me, being a reviewer, can very much appreciate a tech bench as it makes life easier for testing products. Just because its a test bench doesnt mean that the average user cant use it, in fact being a test bench allows you to fully open it up and get inside making installation of you system just that much easier. The HAF XB is small in size but its got a lot of room inside thanks to the excellent design of it. The HAF XB allows you to use even the largest video cards and you can easily fit three of them inside for a nice gaming system. The case comes with two fans pre-installed but there is room for more if you need more cooling, and the case can be used with liquid cooling as well or any combination thereof. Its from Cooler Master so you know its a quality made case, and that HAF XB is that and more. The case is very well designed to maximize all of the available space and still make it easy to install even the highest end systems in it. So read on for a rather lengthy review of the HAF XB"

Enermax Coenus Mid-Tower
     Wed, Aug 21 2013 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Enermax has added a new case to their already impressive line-up. The Coenus is a mid-tower case that comes in either black or gunmetal grey. This mid-tower case supports high end GPUs with seven expansion slots for two or three way SLI/CF depending on the size of your cards. The Coenus can fit up to seven 3.5? devices depending on the configuration you choose. And with a large side window and LED fans, how much does this case cost? Only $55. Sounds very promising. Let’s have a closer look.”

NZXT Phantom 530 Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Tue, Aug 20 2013 | 10:24P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Phantom 530 is NZXT`s modern day follow-up to the original Phantom, one of the most distinctive cases ever released. This new version packs in even more features and may single handedly redefine full tower prices.\"

Attitude One Vintorez Review @ Vortez
     Tue, Aug 20 2013 | 12:42P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Vintorez is Attitude One`s first gaming mouse, joining other gaming peripherals such as the Makarov keyboard and Tunguska headsets. Set at around 30-35 Euros or 25-30, it occupies a low to mid-range price position against some of the most well-regarded brands in the business. The design takes cues from the best by including a 3200 DPI optical sensor, flaring main buttons two thumb buttons and rubberised non-slip coating. In a relative rarity at the price point it also incorporates customisable LED illumination and DPI settings; mainstream features for gaming mice at a relatively budget price point."

NZXT H630 Silent Ultra-Tower Case Review @ HiTech Legion
     Tue, Aug 20 2013 | 9:50A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The H630 is NZXT`s first full-tower case designed for silent-computing. The NZXT H630 shares the same internal base design as the Phantom 630 with two less 5.25 drive bays and increased 3.5 modular cage mounting support. Externally, the H630 adopts a more conservative, less-rounded look compared to the Phantom series while maintaining an unmistakably NZXT signature aesthetic. Noise dampening materials line the top, front and side panels of the H630 to minimize sound output from the enthusiast-class components installed inside. Radiator support up to 360mm is available at the top and front, while a 240mm or 280mm can be installed at the bottom. The H630 HDD cages can even be reconfigured or removed entirely to accommodate thicker radiators for the front. In terms of component support, the NZXT H630 provides 190mm of CPU heatsink height clearance as well as 354mm clearance for video cards with ample cable management routing space of 27mm behind the right side panel. An SD-card reader connected via USB 2.0 header is built into the front panel I/O as well as an LED on/off switch for the rear I/O. The NZXT H630 measures 245 x 547 x 567mm (W x H x D) made of SECC steel as well as ABS Plastic and supports ITX through XL-ATX/EATX motherboard sizes. Right out of the box, the NZXT H630 comes with a 20mm front intake fan as well as a 140mm rear exhaust fan, pre-installed into the built-in 10-channel 3-pin fan hub./"

Cougar Spike case review
     Sat, Aug 17 2013 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cougar made its debut in 2007 and quickly became a recognized name among computer enthusiasts. The German firm primarily focuses on cases, power supplies and fans, and this is the first time we'll be taking a look at one of Cougar's products at DV Hardware. The focus of this review is the Cougar Spike, a mini tower case designed for gaming-oriented Micro-ATX builds. Priced at $39.99, this is a low budget case that promises relatively great expandability in a space-saving design.
