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!
You may have noticed that we already did a review on the NZXT Switch 810. Well…here we are again, and this time, we have the new Switch 810 Special Edition! NZXT sent us the gunmetal chassis, and it is most definitely a looker.

So did NZXT manage to pull off a feat of design greatness in their Switch 810 SE? We’re going to find out for you, strap in.
We have seen so many full tower cases. This is to accommodate the larger XL-ATX motherboards that we have been seeing lately and just to have the extra room for large liquid cooling setups. One of the most impressive cases we saw this year at CES was the Switch 810 from NZXT. NZXT really took their time designing this case to give you so many different cooling options as well as adding features that are just not on other cases. The case comes equipped with four 140mm cooling fans, room for up to 7 hard drives, support for XL-ATX motherboards, USB 3.0 support and much more. So let’s just jump right in and take a look.

When Cooler Master released the Cosmos case a few years ago it was truly something new and revolutionary. They followed it up with the Cosmos S, which gave it a more streamlined look and took away the front door. Our own staff member Colin Dean still uses that case to this day. Back in 2011 at CES we saw a prototype of the new Cosmos that Cooler Master was going to release later in the year. We were excited, but we had no clue when it was going to be released. Right before CES this year Cooler Master announced the Cosmos II. A massive case with support for up to 13 hard drives, 5 included fans with support for up to 10 fans, 2 hot swap hard drive bays, and it can fit motherboards up to XL-ATX.
