Just think. A large clear windowed panel with an all black sprayed interior, drive mounting that is very well thought out, semi tool-less designs and a special place for that AIO or all in one 240 X 120mm hydro cooler. They even offer the gamer an indirect intake air cooling from the side gills to keep the front nice clean and less noisy and you get that “Monster Corsair Obsidian” look on the front end with the faux brushed aluminum anodized look of a plastic front end. No one will know but you and it beats the other cases that are in this price range by a country mile. Would you believe it? Well truthfully I am slightly skeptical too, but I really am rooting for Corsair’s newest 100R Carbide Series Case to make a true believer out of me, but we will see as the Review continues on. So let’s see if this nice looking “Econ-o-Box” can stand up to a gaming setup and how will it fit the needs? Will it be a viable alternative and a budget saver to use the Corsair Carbide Series 100R or do we need to look further into the higher priced Cases?
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!
Steiger Dynamics has released a pretty impressive case for do it yourself PC builders. The LEET chassis is made of hand-brushed aluminum. For those looking to get their hands on this case it is pretty steep at $798 USD. Each LEET chassis comes with complimentary accessories and peripherals such as the STEIGER DYNAMICS Windows Media Center Remote Control, a STEIGER DYNAMICS Black Cloth Binder, and spare parts/screws/cables.
NZXT has a new silent case on their hands in the H630. NZXT says this case was engineered for one purpose, to provide enthusiasts the ability to build the highest performing systems while remaining audibly invisible. The H630 will feature a high-density sound dampening design that will not impede cooling capabilities.
Enermax has been relatively quiet when it comes to cases. They have not had a case that has really stood out to us as of late. We hope that is going to change with the Ostrog GT Mid Tower. It features a unique design, room for 10 fans (three included), USB 3.0 support, a large side panel window, and room for a total of 10 hard drives! Enermax is looking to make a mark in the sub $100 segment with this case as it is currently selling for $74.99. Will this case impress? Read on as we find out!
Enermax has just announced a new flagship case in their Fulmo ST mid tower. Enermax has already released their original Fulmo and Fulmo GT and now it is time for the ST series. The front of the case features a black iron mesh design, which looks pretty good. The side panel of the case has a full acrylic windows so you are going to be able to see all of your hardware installed inside. At the top of the case you will find four USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports and a fan speed controller.
When it comes to mid range cases there are quite a few to choose from. The $60-80 dollar segment is filled with some great cases as well as some that I wouldn’t recommend to anyone. Today we are taking a look at Sentey’s Halcon GS-6050 II mid tower case. The big thing that stood out to me about this case is that it comes stock with 7 cooling fans! That is a lot of fans for any case, but especially for a mid tower. The Halcon also has support for 2.5-inch hard drives, long video cards and has USB 3.0 support. Will this case be one of the cases in the mid range that we recommend or that we tell you to stay away from? Read on as we find out!
Raidmax has been around for quite a while, since 1988 in fact. I fell in love with their early designs and they were some of the first cases we reviewed when ThinkComputers started. Since then they have been going strong creating some very unique PC cases. Today we have one of their more budget-minded cases, the Cobra. Coming it at just over $70 this mid tower case offers a pretty cool design, support for 2.5-inch hard drives, two included 120mm cooling fans, USB 3.0 support and a nifty side panel window. Is this the next case for your build? Read on as we take a look…
In Win has really had a name for themselves over the past year creating some really unique cases in their X-Frame and H-Frame. While these cases look great and are very unique they are not for everyone. Today we are taking a look at one of In Win’s latest cases the GRone, which is setup to compete with many cases from the more known brands. To be honest this is the most feature-packed case that I’ve seen from In Win. Some of those features include support for motherboards up to E-ATX, room for eight 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch hard drives, five included cooling fans, USB 3.0 support a hard drive dock and much more. Read on as we take a look at the GRone.
