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.
With mini-ITX systems becoming more and more powerful and mini-ATX motherboards offering the same features as full ATX boards it is hard to decide what type of system to build. At the same time if you are going to build one of these smaller systems there really are not that many cases that offer all the features you expect from a normal PC case. Well Lian Li noticed this and came out with the PC-V352. A small cube style case that packs in a lot of features and has all of the quality you expect from Lian Li. Let’s check it out and see if it is perfect for your next small system build.
I’ve always been a fan of cube cases, especially being a gamer. I don’t want to have to carry my large tower case filled with components to local LAN parties. Cube cases make it much easier, and even if you are not a gamer they take up less space on your desk and usually look better than other cases. Today we will be looking at Aerocool’s first cube case, the Qx-2000. It features a very unique internal design, room for 2 optical drives, 3 hard drives, and a built in fan controller. Let’s take a look at the Qx-2000 and see if it’s the perfect case for your next LAN box build.
