Out of all the Fractal Design cases the one I’ve really wanted to get my hands on has been the Define XL, what can I say I am a fan of big cases. Well Fractal Design has recently revised the Define XL, coming out with the Define XL R2 case. The R2 takes the best parts of the original Define XL case and adds upon it. The Define XL R2 supports large motherboards like E-ATX and XL-ATX, has room for up to 8 hard drives, 4 optical drives, 9 expansions slots, has three included fans with a fan controller and much much more! Did I mention Fractal Design intends this case to be pretty quiet as well. Let’s jump in!
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 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.
The NZXT Switch 810 Full Tower case was the talk of CES. Everyone we knew was talking about it and NZXT gave us an awesome overview of the case in their suite. Fast forward a few months and we have our own Switch 810 in the office and today we are going to be unboxing it! This case comes equipped with four 140mm fans, room for 7 hard drives, support for XL-ATX motherboards and a whole slew of other features. Read on to check out our unboxing and overview video!

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. Read on as we check this beast out!
Antec has just released a brand new gaming case, the Eleven Hundred! This case has all of the features you would want in a case, great cooling, room for 2.5-inch SSD’s and up to six normal SATA drives, USB 3.0 connectivity, and a lot of room inside to work with! This case is also an XL-ATX case so it is going to support larger motherboards like the Gigabyte G1 Assassin. Read on as we unbox and give you an overview of this awesome case!
I know many of you probably have heard of ATX, mATX and even E-ATX motherboards, but what about XL-ATX? XL-ATX is a newer motherboard form factor that is mainly used on gaming motherboards. The G1 Assassin from Gigabyte is actually an XL-ATX motherboard. XL-ATX boards are just a tad bit larger than normal motherboards and there are not that many cases that can house them. Well the Cubitek Tank XL-ATX case is one such case. This all aluminum case not only will house your XL-ATX motherboard, but large video cards up to 310mm and longer power supplies 220+mm. The Tank also features 4 included cooling fans, tool-free hard drive installation, USB 3.0 connectivity, a VGA card holder and is water-cooling ready. Let’s drive right in and take a look.
Today we are doing our first case Unboxing! The case in question is the Cubitek Tank XL-ATX case. This case is one of a few available XL-ATX cases.
