Not that long ago we took a look at NZXT’s Phantom 820 case. This case took the best parts of NZXT’s original Phantom and combined them with the best parts of their own Switch 810 case. We loved the case and even gave it our Recommended Award. With a pricetag of $249.99 the Phantom 820 may be a little too expensive for some people. At CES we were shown the Phantom 630, which seemed to be like the little brother to the Phantom 820. While NZXT explained that this is a less expensive Phantom it has a lot of new features that are not in the 820. Some of these features include dual SSD mounts behind the motherboard tray, three included 200mm fans, three removable hard drive cages, and a new motherboard tray design. Can NZXT release a new Phantom this soon and still impress? Read on as we find out…
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.

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.

If you’re an enthusiast, chances are you’ve heard of Case Labs. Some of their cases have garnered worldwide acclaim and the utmost care and attention goes into their designs, builds, and company ethos. Case Labs’ cases are 100% made in the USA, and are hand assembled in the Case Labs warehouse (if you opt for assembly!).
Case Labs recently launched the SM8, the first is their new “Merlin” line, boasting support for E-ATX boards. Crafted from 100% aluminum, with absolutely no plastic to be found, the Merlin SM8 is built incredibly well. Promising support for even the most demanding cooling setups, Case Labs’ newest case is staggeringly detailed. Case Labs were nice enough to send us over a Merlin SM8 for review, and we’ve put together a brief overview with an explanation of some of the features of this very well thought out case.
This is actually our first review from AZZA, but I’m sure you have heard their name before. AZZA was actually founded in 1996, but only in 2009 did they start creating products under the AZZA name. Their main focus is cases and power supplies and we have a great case for you today. The AZZA Genesis 9000 is a full tower case that features a removable and reversible motherboard tray, support for XL-ATX and E-ATX motherboards, room for quite a lot of watercooling, USB 3.0 support and much more. This case really is not your normal case and it really shows you that AZZA wants to give you the customer every option and feature possible in a case.
We are busy working away at our review of the AZZA Genesis 9000 Full Tower Case. Let me tell you, this case is very unique and unlike your “normal” full tower case. You can switch it from a normal ATX case to a reverse ATX case and the power supply mounts in the front for starters. We wanted to give you a little tease before we post the full review so read on to check out our almost 10 minute overview video!
