For the past few years Thermaltake’s cases have sort of been mainstream, appealing to pretty much anyone who wants a case. While this may or may not be the best thing other case companies have been really becoming popular with enthusiast builders out there. At CES this past January Thermaltake told us that they were going to be returning to their roots with some of their new cases, making these cases specifically for builders, modders and enthusiasts. Today we are taking a looking at the Urban T81 Full Tower which features a dual-swing door design, full modular drive concept, three 200 mm and a 140 mm fans included and the sleek design that you expect from Thermaltake’s Urban Series. Will this case impress? Read on as we find out!
A lot of times when starting a review you want to introduce the reader to the company whose product they are reading about. In the case of this case builder I don’t think that will be necessary. Phanteks is now in it’s 7th year as a company and no doubt you know of them and their wildly popular Enthoo Primo full tower case. But what we are looking at today is not a new flagship product. Rather what we have is Phantek’s first entry into the low-mid price range case market, the Enthoo Pro. Read along as we find out if the Lamborghini of case makers can actually make a coupe that both the average person can afford and more importantly will actually want to drive.
Cougar is a relatively new company to us here at ThinkComputers. We have reviewed a couple of their power supplies and were actually quite impressed. Now it is time for cases, and up on the review block today is the MX300 which is part of Cougar’s MX Gaming Series. This is a rather inexpensive case with a street price of around $40, but still offers some great features like space for long graphics cards, tool-less drive options, USB 3.0 support and much more. Will this inexpensive case be a good value? We will have to find out!
As time has passed, Corsair has stood by a code of “Quality” above all else. This code has made them a leader in Computer Cases and with AIO (All in One) water cooling systems like the Hydro-series that are commonly used worldwide. The company is great with their customers after the sale as well with a winning customer service that is extremely pleasing to the end user and builds more sales by giving confidence that when someone buys a Corsair Product they are buying Quality and Reliability and that is what makes Corsair the Great Company that it is. Look for a 3 week turnaround on returns or replacement. The 730t Graphite Series case is a brand new edition to the Graphite family of Corsair cases. The 730t Full Tower case is new to the market and has not quite caught on yet but we have a feeling that this along with his big brother the 760t cases will be a hit with modders and builders alike.
We have always known Enermax for some pretty attractive and interesting cases. Today we are taking a look at one of their latest cases the iVektor. One interesting thing about this case is that it has a soft touch coating that is said to absorb vibrations, noise and prevent fingerprints. Besides this coating the iVektor features a large side panel window for showing off hardware, USB 3.0 support, room for large graphics cards and liquid cooling solutions and multiple tool-less installation features. The iVektor comes in black, white and red, but today we will be taking a look at the black version. Will this be the case for your next build? Read on as we find out!
NZXT is one of those chassis manufacturers which always seems to surprise with each entry by having some sort of special feature or tweak that makes it just that little bit more easy to use or maybe even adds to overall awesomeness in appearance. So needless to say we were intrigued when we got the H230 in house as it is designed to be a very budget friendly model with a MSRP of around $70 dollars and a present street price of $59.99 at our favorite etailer. Now we wanted to tear into it and show you what we find inside, so read on to see what the new H230 has in store for your budget friendly Mid tower building pleasure.
Most case manufacturers out there make conventional PC cases, meaning they fit the traditional form factors and are not all that different inside. Well Corsair has changed things up a little bit with their Carbide Series Air 540, which is a cube-style case, but it actually fits a full-sized ATX motherboard and components. This case features a dual-chamber design that not only helps with better cooling, but makes installation much easier. This case has actually been out for some time, but Corsair recently announced the white version of the case so that is what we are looking at today. Will this be the case for your next build? Read on as we find out.
Over the past year In Win has been releasing some very unique case designs. This all started with their Tou case that was revealed at Computex. Today we are looking at another case from In Win that does not conform to the norms, it is their 904 mid tower case. This case is made entirely of glass and aluminum! Thats right, both side panels are made of thick tinted tempered glass and the frame of the case is constructed of 4mm thick aluminum alloy. This makes for a very unique case and something that will catch the eyes of onlookers at a LAN party for sure! Is this case all looks or is it actually functional as well? Read on as we take a look…
Sleek and stylish cases are not something that we normally see from Thermaltake. We know Thermaltake for cases that tend to be more on the flashy side. Their Urban Series is the exact opposite of this as the series is designed to have a simple and elegant aesthetic and is for users who look for everything but a flamboyant appearance. Today we are taking a look at the largest case in the Urban Series, the S71. This case has room for quite a lot of hardware including ATX and E-ATX motherboards, long graphics cards, six hard drives, and three optical drives. On top of that you have tool-less installation, USB 3.0 support, a large side panel window and even a hard drive dock! Will this be your next case? Read on as we find out!
While most of the case makers out there have gone for the more sleek and subtle design for their cases, Raidmax is always a company we can count on for some pretty extreme case designs. Today we are talking a look a look at their Agusta case. This case has a sort of transformer-like design to it, which looks awesome. On top of that it has a dual chamber design with the 3.5-inch / 2.5-inch drive trays on the bottom of the case. This not only makes room for watercooling inside the main compartment of the case but keeps the heat generated by your hard drives in a separate compartment. Other features include USB 3.0 support, six included fans and tool-less installation systems. Read on as we take a look…
