Fractal Design Define XL R2 Full Tower Case Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sat, Feb 02 2013 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Fractal Design Define XL R2 is built to be one tough case. The design behind the Define XL R2 is performance, silence, and with the option for more airflow and water cooling. Fractal is one of the only manufacturers to include high density matting in their system builds to reduce the vibration and noise, all unused fan mounting locations are also filled with their ModuVent system so the user can decide between more airflow or silence. The motherboard tray features support for ATX, Micro ATX, Mini ITX, E-ATX, and XL-ATX form factors. Plenty of cable management options are available on the Fractal Define XL R2, with rubber grommets all over the motherboard tray and tie downs on the back of the tray. The stock cooling system consists of three 140mm fans and four additional 120mm/140mm fans can be installed, along with plenty of mounting locations for water cooling using 240mm and 120mm radiators."

Case Conundrum: Affordable Midtowers Compared
     Fri, Feb 01 2013 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we're reviewing a series of mid-tower cases at a variety of affordable price points. These four cases are all marketed towards enthusiasts and ship with what were once considered upscale options, including external water cooling mounts, multiple 120mm fans, screwless installation, removable case vents, and board cutouts for easy third-party heatsink installation. That's great news if you're tired of seeing full towers get all the high-end love from case manufacturers, but it makes the prospect of picking a single enclosure a bit daunting. We've rounded up options from Antec, Corsair, Fractal, and Rosewill, the Antec P280, Corsair C70, Fractal Design R4, and Rosewill R5 and have the full scoop for you here:

Antec One Budget Gaming Case Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Fri, Feb 01 2013 | 3:29P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Antec?s One may only cost $60 but it boasts a great feature set, plenty of fan options and the exterior design isn`t particularly offensive like some competing cases. However, with Corsair`s 200R and several other cases breathing down their necks, Antec has a lot to prove with this one."

[DreamWare Computers] SilverStone PS08 mATX Case
     Thu, Jan 31 2013 | 3:31P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the last few years I`ve noticed a big shift in the quality of budget priced computer cases (think cases that sit around the $40 price point). We used to associate these cases with cheap looking and feeling designs, void of many features and built with flimsy side panels around a fairly flimsy chassis. However, a lot of well known computer case manufacturers have been starting to release some impressive entry level cases in this price segment that go against what we`ve come to expect from a cheap case. Over the last year I`ve had a fair number of these cases pass through my hands and the latest, the SilverStone PS08, is here with me today."

Review: NZXT H2 Classic Black @ Ocaholic
     Thu, Jan 31 2013 | 1:17A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although NZXT`s H2 has been available for quite some time now, this doesn`t change anything, when it comes to the fact, that it`s still an interesting case to have a closer look at. NZXT wants to offer an enclosure that is suitable for building a silent PC and furthermore it should come a reasonable price. This is reason enough for us to review this case."

Fractal Design Define R4 Mid-Tower Chassis Review @ Techgage
     Wed, Jan 30 2013 | 12:24P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* Where desktops are concerned, some may consider bigger to be better, but sometimes, theres nothing quite as satisfying as a simple, classy-looking PC that you can barely hear. Helping to make that scenario a reality is Fractal Design, with its sound-dampened mid-tower Define R4. Lets check it out."

Cygnett Apollo iPhone 4/4S Case Review @ Madshrimps
     Sun, Jan 27 2013 | 12:24P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Apollo case from Cygnett is a hybrid which means that it combines two different materials: silicone and hard plastic. The case sports a clean design and can be ordered in different colors and The manufacturer has also included a screen protector."

Ozone Rage ST Review @ Vortez
     Wed, Jan 23 2013 | 3:31P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dedicated to evolution and delivering products at a reasonable price, Ozone release the Rage ST into the war zone. Interestingly, in the name of variety and choice, the Rage ST is their first headset that allows the buyer to shy away from the angsty red on black chic (that isn`t a limited edition), that is adorned so brazen by Ozone`s product line up and gives customers the choice of five colours. Black, White, Red, Yellow and Blue."

Silverstone Sugo Series SG09 Small Form Factor Tower Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Wed, Jan 23 2013 | 5:12A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The tenth case is the unit that we will be reviewing here today, which is the SG09. The SG09 takes a different approach than the very popular SG05, SG07 and SG08 as it is longer than square like the others. And when it comes to their SG03 and SG04, which are taller towers and have aluminum front panels the SG09 is made of plastic. But we are not going to let any of this get in the way of reviewing this sweet looking case."

Cooler Master HAF XB @ techPowerUp
     Tue, Jan 22 2013 | 12:24P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the HAF XB, Cooler Master has taken a HAF case and some tech bench genes to create a unique chassis that turns out to be quite the useful enclosure - for both (LAN Party) Gamers and avid tinkerers."

Antec GX700 Military Themed Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Tue, Jan 22 2013 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Antec brings forth a rugged, military inspired, mid-tower chassis perfect for those military themed case mods everyone is doing these days. Say hello to the GX700 case."

SilverStone Precision PS08 Case Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Tue, Jan 22 2013 | 5:12A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Silverstone Precision PS08 is a case targeted to microATX motherboards, also supporting the Micro-ITX and Micro-DTX formats. It is bigger than traditional small form factor (SFF) cases, such as the Sugo series models from the same manufacturer."

Corsair Carbide Series 200R Compact ATX Case Review
     Sun, Jan 20 2013 | 12:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy and Corsair looks to remedy that with its Carbide Series 200R; or something like that. Outside of the motherboard installation, no tools required is the message Corsair is looking to get across about this compact size "mid-tower" case.

Antec Performance One P280 Super Mid Tower PC Case Review
     Sat, Jan 19 2013 | 11:57A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On a day just like today 10 months ago we launched this entirely new project and since in such a short time we`ve managed to make gigantic steps i just wanted to thank all of you our readers for your continuous support. Getting back to todays review some of you may recall that one of the many manufacturers that made their debut in this years CES the Xi3 Corporation predicted the end of desktop computing when they unveiled their HTPC sized Z3RO Pro Computer system. Now i do hope that in the future technology will make it possible for us to own tiny systems with tremendous potential able to play the most demanding of games and thus remove the need for large tower based systems but until that day comes i will always choose a full tower over a midi/mini PC Case because quite honestly i like having the extra space not only to fit the largest possible hardware components but mainly to do that with extreme ease. So today we will be taking a look at such a tower and more specifically the latest addition to Antec`s performance one line the Super Mid Tower P280."

Three EnGenius routers reviewed: ESR-300H, ESR-600H and ESR-750H
     Fri, Jan 18 2013 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Out of the three EnGenius routers, the compact ESR-300H made the best impression on us. If you have no use for a router that supports 5 GHz, like if you don't own any devices that are compatible with that frequency, then it's a worthy option. However, its average price of £60 is eerily close to that of a number of quite good dual-band routers from other brands, for example the Edimax BR-6675nD. The VPN server on the ESR-300H could have put that model on top, were it not for the slow 100 Mbit ports.

Antec GX700 Mid-Tower Case Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, Jan 17 2013 | 11:38P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Antec GX700 is an all metal build, with the styling of a military vehicle. The GX700 is a full featured case with 9 drive bays, including four tool-less 5.25 bays, and five 3.5/2.5 tool-less HDD bays. Antec has provided support for ATX, microATX, and Mini-ITX boards in a package that weighs in at 13.8 lbs.
