Phanteks has found itself in the enviable position of having some of the most highly regarded cases currently on the market. Their line-up of course begins with the Primo on top followed by the Luxe and bringing up the rear is the Pro. With these cases Phanteks has used a sort of modular design for certain parts. For example the SSD brackets; they all mount in the same way in all three cases. The difference being the type and quantity of brackets included, with the Pro you are limited to just one single drive bracket. This might be disappointing to you, but don’t worry, Phanteks has your back. Now available on most major computer component retailer sites is Phanteks full line of case accessories. Let’s take a brief look at what Phanteks has to offer.

So what do you do when you’ve made an awesome product that people love? Well if you’re a car company you would start tweaking and changing until you’ve created a monster GT performance version, or maybe go the other way and make a pure luxury model. Well it just so happens that Phanteks has created just such a product with their Enthoo Pro. As such, it makes sense that they would have developed a better more luxurious version of the Pro at the same time. Today we will be taking a look at the Enthoo Luxe, Phantek’s fancy version of the Pro and the true heir to the throne of the Enthoo Primo.
Over the past couple of year NZXT has really set the bar when it has come to computer case design, not only on the outside, but on the inside as well. One of their newest cases the H440 also hopes to do the same. Its extremely sleek design is made possibly by completely removing optical drive bay cases from the case, which make way for an all-new storage system.

NZXT really thought out every aspect of this case. Will it impress? Read on and find out!

I hate wires. No, really, I hate wires. I was one of the first people I knew to get WiFi in my house, I’ve never had a landline, and I used to joke that I cut the cable cord out of principle alone. All of this said, it’s no surprise that I’m big on wireless charging. I’ve got a Tylt VÜ at work, an official Nexus wireless charger (with magnets!) on my nightstand, and a DiGiYes dual-spot wireless charger in my living room. Now, with the iOttie Easy Flex Wireless Qi Standard Charging Car Mount, I’ve got wireless charging in my car, too. We first saw the Easy Flex Qi, as I’ve come to call it, and do remember that Qi is pronounced “chee”, at CES 2014, where it won a coveted CEA Innovations Award for its fantastic design and functionality. We’re glad to finally get our hands on one to see how it fairs under review.
