Over the past years Cooler master cases are being considered top of the line cases when it comes to performance, sizes, artistic and being moddable. Cooler Master has started showing off their latest line which is expected to come throughout the year. Most people who are into cases know that Cooler Master Cosmos II is the best cases ever built. There are rumors that these cases will be released before this year finishes.
Cooler Master has just announced two new cases. They are the N300 and N500, which are both mid-tower cases. These cases are designed with cooling in mind. They feature full mesh front panels and vents all over the case for great airflow. Both cases have a sleek sophisticated look to them and are currently only available in black. Even though they have pretty compact designs they have room for long graphics cards and several different storage options.
When it comes to computer cases, power supplies and cooling products we do not see that many new companies popping up. Probably because it is such a competitive market to get in to. We have been hearing about a new company entering the market called Raijintek. They are said to be developing a new range of high end power supplies, cases and cooling products.

One of my most common questions I get when one of my friends is building a new computer is, “What case should I get?”. Your case is a very important part of your system. It is what you are going to see each time you sit down at your desk, the first thing someone is going to see at a LAN party and the case you are going to have to deal with when you decide to upgrade your system. This past year we have reviewed a lot of great cases, but a few really stick out from the rest. Our list of the best cases of 2012 are drawn from only the cases we have reviewed this year. So if you think an awesome case is off the list that may be why. Read on to check out what we consider the best cases of 2012!

At CES 2012, In Win is showing off some things you might have already seen, and others you’ve never seen. Ray with In Win showed us their power supplies, a revised Dragon Rider chassis, along with a couple concept designs and the super limited edition XFRAME. Each chassis is sleek while being super accessible. For example, on the XFRAME, In Win has included a lockable panel that holds all of the screws, and motherboard standoffs. Also, the XFRAME is truly a limited edition. Each XFRAME will be individually numbered, and it’s rumored that the numbers may not go past triple digits.
