After experimenting with different options for fan blade design, Zalman has taken cue from the scientifically proven “shark fin” blade design that many manufacturers have adopted. This design is proven to reduce turbulance coming of the back side of the blades. With reduced turbulance, the blades are more stable, wear less on the bearings, and noise is significantly reduced.
After the great success of their monstrous FX100 fanless CPU cooler Zalman has decided to try and make fan less coolers more accessible to those with smaller cases with the introduction of the FX70.
Taking a cue from their friends at Enermax Lepa is releaing a new line of CPU coolers the LPALV12 series. These single tower coolers are going to be available in multiple colors and pack a laundry list of features that ensure high performance.
While Enermax is widely known for having a good selection of quality fans, especially if you like your fans to come with LEDS, until now they have not had a good high static pressure fan. The all new Twister Pressure PWM fan should be immediately popular amongst water coolers and air coolers alike.
If there is one thing that the gaming community could use more of it’s classy well finished peripherals for those with a more refined taste. Hoping to accomplish just that, Feenix introduces the 2014 Autore mechanical keyboard.
After an enthusiastic reception of the Enthoo Primo, Phanteks has decided to expand their selection of cases to include a new mid tower case. This case is name the Luxe, and is packed with enough features to possibly live up to the name.
When it comes to enthusiast hardware products Zalman has been at it for a while. With the current trend of CPU cooling continuing to lean towards all in one liquid cooling solutions Zalman has brought to the table a new cooler which was shown to us at CES, the Reserator3 Max-Dual.
If there is one area of the PC world that is difficult to release something unique in, it would be cases. While it might seem that the possibilities are limitless, the truth is there are a very tight set of requirements to which builders must conform. These guidelines result in manufacturers churning out case after case that are essentially the same thing. Sure they may add this plastic bit here, or convert something else to be more tool less there, but at the core they are the same. This has had both positive and negative effects. The case mod scene comes from the desire for individuality in this sea of indistinguishable parts and has resulted in some impressive builds. However, many are left building their machines within the strict confines allowed by their cases. Fortunately for those of us looking for something unique and appropriate there are still some companies thinking outside the box. Today we will take a close look at the Phanteks Enthoo Primo full tower case and see if Phanteks is one of these companies.
