Thermaltake, an industry leader in computer chassis, thermal solutions, and power supply units, unveils the new Core V51 Riing Edition Window Green Mid-Tower Chassis, a marriage of Thermaltake’s two star products: the Red Dot Award Product Design 2015 winner Core V51 Mid-Tower Chassis and the Riing 14 Patented LED High Static Pressure Radiator Fan.
The NZXT NOCTIS 450 is a mixture of engineering and modern art; sharing an internal frame that we have come a custom to find with the more familiar S340 and H440 in addition adding to that mix a completely different outer shell design theme. The NOCTIS 450 is like imagining a Phantom and a H440 metamorphosing together into a completely different mixture of look and style, but still keeping that similar inner engineering that we have come to enjoy with NZXT sharing of innovations of Custom Computer Case Modders around the Globe.
The illusive PC Test Bench, something that if you are reviewing or testing PC hardware is a must have. Test benches make it extremely easy to swap out hardware compared to a traditional PC case. This not only makes things easier, but saves you quite a lot of time and frustration as well. Surprisingly there are not that many companies that offer PC test benches, but Lian Li is one of them. They first released the PC-T60, which supported ATX motherboards, but lacked room for AiO watercooling. The Lian Li PC-T80 is now here and supports motherboards up to XL-ATX and has room for radiators up to 360mm. We will be using this test bench for our new graphics card test rig, will it fit the bill? Read on as we find out!
Most of the cases that I have seen and reviewed this year have usually been what I personally refer to as cookie cutter cases. Meaning that most are generally all alike in build placement and engineering except for one or two exceptions that make that particular case unique, but the Silverstone FT04 is a case that defies this rule of case making. The Silverstone FT04 still has to follow the usual JEDEC Rules for conformity to the E-ATX form factor but past that is where it all changes to pure uniqueness. This Silverstone case defies most of the usual configuration standards and sets itself apart as being a “Case all its own”.
DeepCool has added another model to its TriStellar line, the TriStellar SW. The TriStellar is the case that launched with the CyberPower Trinity and was the talk of CES. The new TriStellar SW features tempered glass panels on its top compartment. This will allow you to show off your hard drives and graphics card.
Now with the In Win 707 Gaming Black case we now see has a more conventional style and high build quality that is reminiscent of the older days both in construction and constraints that were there before and here now. The $139.00 price tag of the current In Win 707 Black Gaming case would have been $179.00 or more back in 2009 but times have changed and the case makers are doing their level best to keep cost down but sacrificing build quality is not in this one except for the plastic ODD door in the front. The rest is heavy duty steel, great paint, features and flexibility to make a huge server case or a minimalist gamer case. There is room for an extremely fat double CPU Server motherboard or an E-ATX or ATX regular sized motherboard.
While In Win is blowing minds with their H-Tower and 909 cases they also had a more “entry-level” 805 Gaming Case that features a slick tempered glass design. This ATX case has an aluminum internal structure with tempered glass panels on on the side and front.
DeepCool was showing a few new cases at Computex, one of the more interesting ones was the GamerStorm Nephrite. This slim console-type case has a top compartment for your graphics card that is transparent so you can really show off your graphics card!
Building on the success of its 904 ATX and 901 mini-ITX cases In Win has decided to go even bigger with its 9-series design showcasing the 909 full tower at Computex 2015. The case itself follows the same design of the 904 and 901 with its tempered glass panels and 4mm thick aluminum alloy frame.
If you think you know what a BIG PC case is Thermaltake wants you to think again with their brand new “Team TT Modding” WP200 Chassis. The case was designed with modders and enthusiasts in mind, and did I mention it is MASSIVE?! It is one of the larger cases being shown off at Computex.
