Over the past few years, Corsair has steadily ramped up the number and types of computer chassis it manufacturers. The high-end 700D and 800D have been followed by a number of midrange products and one uber-expensive deluxe model, the massive 900D. The case we're reviewing today, the 750D, is meant to drop into the $200 price bracket, where it faces competition from Corsair's own 650D mid-tower as well as a number of other chassis from manufacturers that offer products at similar or somewhat cheaper price points. Despite the name, the 750D is actually somewhat smaller than the original 700D/800D... Read more...

The case we're reviewing today, the 750D, is meant to drop into the sub-$200 price bracket, where it faces competition from Corsair's own 650D mid-tower as well as a number of other chassis from manufacturers. Despite the name, the 750D is actually somewhat smaller than the original 700D/800D family. Those chassis were 24 inches long, 24 inches tall,... Read more...
Well, In Win’s gone and done it: They’ve created the most beautiful computer case ever. The “tou” concept case is on display at Computex, and to say that the glass-and-aluminum chassis is eye-catching would be an understatement. “tou” apparently means “transparent” in Mandarin, which is fitting, because the case’s 3mm tempered glass panels,which are mounted on an aluminum structure, are translucent--even moreso if the LEDs inside are lit up to partially reveal the components. Without the lights, the glass panels offer a mirror-like reflection.... Read more...
Lian Li has chosen to move away from the traditional motherboard tray with its latest chassis, the PC-9N. While many chassis today use a solid motherboard tray that blocks airflow, the PC-9N uses a railing mount design that provides increased thermal performance and better cable management. The PC-9N is a brushed aluminum mid tower chassis that supports ATX and micro-ATX motherboards. The chassis is capable of holding up to three 3.5-inch hard drives and one 2.5-inch SSD in an all aluminum, tool-less, modular drive cage that is located in the lower front of the chassis. To reduce noise and vibrations,... Read more...
They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and one look is all it takes to decide if the new Raptor PC chassis from Raidmax is ugly as sin or one of the coolest designs you've ever seen. There isn't much middle ground here -- it's wild, it's funky, it's attention getting, and according to Raidmax, it was inspired by luxurious themes. We're not sure we see the same resemblance Raidmax does, but it's definitely an eye-catching chassis, if that's what you're after. There's a dark-tinted airfoil design that sits above the LED illuminated case fans. It's translucent and flanked by fender-like blades... Read more...
Designed by the folks at BMW for Thermaltake, the one gripe that stuck with the original Level 10 case, was that it was gorgeous and drool-worthy perhaps but be prepared to sell that kidney, with its MSRP weighing in at $850 (they're selling for only $699 now).   So Thermaltake set out to design a more affordable follow-on product and the Level 10 GT was born.  The Level 10 GT has similar design cues to Thermaltake's uber-expensive first generation chassis, but is built with a more traditional internal component housing and lower-cost materials.  The GT doesn't catch your eye like...

Computer cases tend to reveal certain things about their owners. With one glance, your friends can estimate just how serious (or casual) your computer hardware addiction may be. Whether the chassis is a generic, cream-colored throwback from the 90's, a standard mid-tower with a couple of LED fans, or an extravagant full-tower gaming behemoth with see-through side panels and custom graphics, first impressions unavoidably start with the enclosure.Although the market is loaded with a myriad of attractive cases, one product from Thermaltake caught our attention from the moment we laid eyes on it and...

The folks at the Inquirer have posted some interesting news from CeBIT in the way of a Micro-ATX SLI-capable motherboard to be offered by EVGA. Apparently, EVGA has received several requests by interested OEM's so you can likely expect to see this board appearing in potent SFF systems in the coming months. Despite the fact that Shuttle already had compact SLI motherboards, we can all agree having a few more options is never a bad thing. The board uses Nforce 4 SLI chipset and it has three PCIe graphic slots. In a reality if you use the single... Read more...

The crew from Hardware-Review.net sent word that they've reviewed a new case from NZXT, dubbed 'Lexa'.  I'm not sold on the aesthetic (the curved front if kind of funky), but the author seemed to really like it. "NZXT initially made a name for themselves with the Guardian and Nemesis computer cases. Now, NZXT introduces the Lexa for those who want a more contemporary, yet great looking case. NZXT has been kind enough to provide us with a Lexa to review, so let's see if this thing can live up to the expectations of today's gamers."... Read more...
Akiba has posted some preliminary information and pictures of a new Gigabyte Yonah MicroATX motherboard that is now available overseas. This new motherboard yses Intel's 845GT chipset to support the new Yonah Core-Duo processor and features some innovative additions that will likely capture the interest of any HTPC enthusiast. From the standardized Socket 478 heatsink mounts to the full PCI-Express x16 slot and 8-channel HD audio, this new motherboard looks to be the ideal platform for building an extremely fast and quiet system for the living room. Unfortunately, there's no word on cost thus far.... Read more...
Antec knows a thing or two about cases, so it's always nice to see what their currently up to. Tonight Hardware-Review.net takes a look at Antec's P150 Silent ATX Case, equipped with three 120-mm fans, and sound dampening side panels."Finding a computer case that's silent and chocked full of features is very challenging. Most modern case manufacturers focus on flashy acrylic UV windows, bright blue and red LEDs, and car-finish paint jobs. One company who broke from this mold is Antec when they developed their P150 case. This case isn't flashy by any means from looking at its exterior, but the hidden... Read more...
