Small form factor systems are getting increasingly popular. With the amount of power in and features in new micro ATX and smaller motherboards means many people are opting for them over the traditional ATX motherboards. They not only cost less but allow you to build a system that is not a pain in the you know what to take to LAN parties. With the popularity of these motherboards there is a large demand for cases made specifically them. Today we are taking a look at one such case, the Precision Series PS07 from SilverStone. This case features a sleek tower design, removable motherboard tray, dual 120mm silent fans, USB 3.0 support and of course the quality you expect from SilverStone. Looking for a case for that Micro ATX motherboard? This may be the case for you!
I myself travel a good bit for LAN parties, with them ether being at a friend’s house or a larger LAN event like Pittco events right here in Pittsburgh. Traveling and carrying around a big case can sometimes be a pain. Then again there are not very many mATX cases that will suit the needs of gamers and fit their larger graphics cards and heatsinks. But Thermaltake was nice enough to send us over their Armor A30 case for us to take a look at. Let’s see if this case will suit my needs and the need of other gamers out there.
Cube cases are a very popular choice for someone who is building a HTPC or wants to save space on their desk. They also make a great LAN box because of their compact size. The b-Envi case from Bgears is quite an attractive case with windows on both sides, 3 front USB ports, 58-in-1 card reader, and a removable motherboard tray. I have decided to turn my main system into a mATX system, so read on to see how easy the b-Envi makes the transition for me.
