This case is available for a price of $760 online, making it not for the faint of heart. The target market is for the SOHO designer trying to have a functional design as part of their overall home office, or the enthusiast gamer wanting excellent cooling, or even the film editor. For these target markets the Level 10 does the job and does it well. The case is secure from theft as once its locked you would have to break the case to get to the parts inside. Aesthetically, the Level 10 case is simply beautiful with a red LED that works when it is in operation. Considering these facts, the Level 10 case is likely to be one that has a limited niche market but one that does exist. This case is only for the person looking to dazzle others with their case as its very expensive and well made. It qualifies for an Editor s Choice as it is the most top of the line case you can currently buy.
We all know who the big case manufacturers out there are and we turn to them when it’s time to get a new case or purchase a case for a build. Not often a new company comes along and blows things out of the water. Well the case we are talking a look at today isn’t from a new company, but they are new to cases. Corsair introduces their first case the Obsidian Series 800D. This case is one of the best cases I’ve seen in a while featuring 4 hot-swappable bays, 3 isolated cooling zones, tool-free optical drive installation, and unique cable routing holes. Let’s take a look at the 800D and see if Corsair has a winner in its first case.
For 2010, Intel has introduced a new line of processors code named “Clarkdale”, and will be known as the Core i5 600 series. At this point there are four processors in this series, the 650, the 660, the 670, and the 661. Today I will be looking at the Intel Core i5 661, a dual core LGA 1156 processor built in the 32nm process, with on-die video processing. This should make it a natural for HTPC and non-gaming rigs. How will the i5 661 fare with this geek who has had the honor of reviewing some of the most powerful video cards in the world? Read on to see!

Sharkoon introduces four new Midi-ATX housings, which provide plenty of room for hardware configuration and system cooling as well as multiple designs for different requirements and styling ideas. The Sharkoon Rebel9 Pro model inherits its optimized housing construction from the previous Sharkoon Rebel9. However, this housing top-seller from Sharkoon has undergone a dramatic revision. This successor comes with numerous improvements and still carries a nearly consistent market sales price. All housings are constructed from sturdy SECC-steel with black exterior and interior lacquer. Behind the synthetic front panel, consisting of screens and an air intake in the mesh design as well as a high-gloss, stainless steel frame edging, the Pro option offers nine possible optical drive bays. With help from enclosed, decoupled mounting angles or suitable installation frames, for example the Sharkoon HDD Vibe-Fixer, 3.5″ drives can also be utilized. The upper six drives are provided with removable faceplates, however, before using the remaining three drives the bracket for the 120mm fan must be simply removed, if necessary. Removable 5.25″ faceplates will be made available by Sharkoon shortly as an optional accessory set.
