The SilverStone Kublai KL05B-W edition is the sport model of the two similar cases. This one has a very nice thin tall window to show just the right amount of glamour of your motherboard and cooling without showing too much. I find it a welcomed change to some of the other full paneled windowed versions that show every bad wiring mistake or give the appearance of TMI. “Too much Information”. The SilverStone Kublai has a taller stance than most with a plastic top cover made to house the Radiator or fans depending on your building needs. This mostly gives room on the top side of the motherboard for any size radiator you might have including a nice fat radiator. The tall thin look of the Kublai is just an illusion because it still gives plenty of room for that large air cooling solution that you may have been thinking of.
Antec was showing off their next flagship case at CES 2015. This case is the P380 and it does look quite promising. The case can fit E-ATX, SSI-CEB, HPTX, XL-ATX, ATX and Micro-ATX motherboards, so you are pretty much covered with everything there.
If only I would have been able to buy this Enermax Thormax Giant case back in 2007 it would have been my first choice hands down. With all the great list of features like high performance ventilation, super cool Enermax Vegas lighted fans and an abundant amount of space for installing pretty much anything you want to in it there is not much to say that is negative about this case. I have already seen how a dual Processor/quad line of memory sticks fit into this case and Quad SLI video stacked to the gills and the case still looks like it needs more, and while in the features it says that it fits a 360 mm radiator at the top it may do that but it’s actually built perfectly for a 240 or 280 fat radiator with push/pull fans.
Thermaltake, being an industry leader in computer chassis, thermal solutions, and power supply units, introduces Core V51 window mid-tower chassis, a new member of the Core Series, which now comes after the launch of Core V71 and Core V1, retaining the curved metal mesh look and delivering an outstanding cooling performance with the compatibility for extensive DIY/AIO LCS and the air cooling units that the series is known for.

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.
Lian-Li today announces the release of a new brushed aluminum full tower chassis – PC-V2130. The update of the popular PC-V2120, the PC-V2130 improves on the design by adding extensive water cooling support, a more versatile HDD system, enhanced cable management.
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!
Phanteks announces the release of the Enthoo Luxe. The Enthoo Luxe’s luxurious chassis combines flexibility and functionality without the added cost. A case worthy for all computer enthusiasts that want a great aircooling or watercooling case. Unleash unlimited possibilities with, our latest addition to our Enthoo Series, the Enthoo Luxe.
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.
