Lian Li is a luxury case maker with a serious fetish for brushed aluminum, and you can see that with the company's newly announced PC-Q09FN, a mini-ITX enclosure intended for home theater PC (HTPC) chores. If you're familiar with Lian Li's HTPC line, you can think of the PC-Q09FN as a more roomier version of the PC-Q09 and PC-Q09F. The newest version has upgraded dimensions that measure 11.65 inches (W) by 5.51 inches (H) by 7.48 inches (D). It supports a slim-style optical disc drive and can accommodate a 3.5-inch hard disk drive that can be removed using thumbscrews. It also boasts a removable... Read more...
Ever find yourself wondering how many variations of the Level 10 chassis Thermaltake can launch? The answer appears to always be 'at least one more.' The newest version of the funktastic case that was first launched in January 2011 is the Level 10 GT Battle Edition, essentially a Level 10 GT with a camouflaged theme to "evoke the 'battle' spirit of being a gamer," or something like that. The Level 10 GT Battle Edition sports a military green paint job that seems to mesh well with the overall unique design of the chassis. New color scheme notwithstanding, this is the same Level 10 GT as non-Battle... 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...
If you're a fan of NZXT's Phantom 410 mid-tower chassis but not the available colors, which up to this point included black, white, red, and pink, you'll be happy to know NZXT listened to "feedback from the PC enthusiast community" and is now offering the case in four additional colors, including a sleek Gunmetal black with a gunmetal interior and exterior matte finish. Other color options include black with orange trim, black with white trim, and white with blue trim. They're a bit more subtle in their presentation, and from what we can tell from the pictures, the colored trim does a good job... Read more...
There's no two ways about it, you're either going to love Raidmax's new Gundam themed Augusta computer case and proclaim it's freaking awesome, or hate what you perceive is a fugly design. From a stylistic standpoint, the Augusta is one of more uniquely crafted enclosures we've ever seen, somewhat reminiscent of NZXT's older cases, like the Nemesis Elite, only with a touch more funk. On the inside, the Augusta brings plenty of traditional features to the table. It's separated into two compartments. Up top sits the motherboard, power supply, two 2.5-inch drive bays, and support for up to five 5.25-inch... Read more...
Your PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 game consoles can stand upright or lay on their sides, so shouldn't your home theater PC (HTPC) be able to do the same thing? That depends entirely on which computer case you choose. Cooler Master's new Elite 361 mini tower is one of just a handful of cases that have been designed to work their mojo in either orientation. Cooler Master's rotatable chassis features a minimalistic design that allows it to sit horizontally or vertically without taking up a ton of space (it measures 5.9 inches wide x 14.4 inches high x 18.2 inches deep). Inside the chassis you'll find... Read more...
Corsair today announced on the second day of CES a couple of additions to its PC case lineup, including the builder-friendly Obsidian Series 550D ultra-quiet premium case, and the compact Carbide Series 300R gaming chassis, both of which sport an all-black interior and exterior theme. So other than size, what sets these enclosures apart? The Obsidian Series 550D is for librarian types looking for a combination of noise reduction and a wide array of customizable cooling solutions. It's made of rugged steel and brushed aluminum, and features two 120mm intake fans and a single 120mm exhaust fan. There... Read more...
This isn't just a new year for Cooler Master, 2012 just happens to represent the company's 20th year of service. What better way to celebrate the occasion than to release a new chassis? Honestly, we can think of several, but none of them productive (and some aren't even legal), so kudos to Cooler Master for staying out of trouble and kicking off 2012 with the introduction of the Cosmos II, a so-called "Ultra Tower." What's an Ultra Tower? In Cooler Master's words, it's "a benchmark for all enclosures that exist and all that follow." Funny marketing aside, the Cosmos II is a neat looking case with... Read more...
You know a computer case means business when it warrants naming an entire PC line after it, and that's what you have with Maingear's SHIFT chassis. Designed in conjunction with Silverstone, the SHIFT computer case is the centerpiece of not one, but two full blown system configurations featured at Maingear, including the "The SHIFT" (for consumers/enthusiasts) and "The Quantum SHIFT" (workstation). But what if you're not in the market for a brand new system and just want the case? Too bad, so sad, up until now. Maingear tells us there's been so much interest in the standalone chassis that they've... Read more...
The holiday shopping season is upon us, and that means setting aside some hard earned funds to buy your family and friends gifts because, well, that's the kind of thing we do this time of year. But lest you forget about yourself, Cooler Master today announced the Elite 431 Plus, a mid-tower computer case with some high end features at a mainstream price. The Elite 431 Plus is an all-black chassis with a somewhat aggressive styling, side window, and painted interior. A 120mm blue LED fan up front gives the case a bit of bling, in case you're into that sort of thing, and there's room for up to four... Read more...
We had a chance to get up close and personal with NZXT's ginormous Phantom chassis during our 'Back-to-School PC Roundup' in September, and let us tell you, it's a great looking case. It's also quite large. We thought it resembled a Storm Trooper, both in size and shape, and while that's fine if you have room for a full tower chassis, not everyone is interested in a case that big. Meet the new Phantom 410. NZXT's newly introduced Phantom 410 is the same chassis aesthetically and it shares many of the same awesome features, but in a smaller package. The Phantom 410 measures 215 (W) x 516 (H) x 532... Read more...
Fractal Design cases have been popping up a lot more frequently these days, but not all of them have been easy to locate. If you're a custom PC builder in need of a new case, the company is now offering them on Newegg. Easy enough? This launch marks the US debut of their Define R3 and Define XL Silent PC Cases. The Define series offers high-quality design with budget pricing, offering a patent pending ModuVent system and a unique noise-dampening material. The new gear is available in a number of colors, with prices ranging from $109.99 and up. Fractal Design and Newegg Announce US Availability... Read more...
Always the opportunistic bunch, boutique system builder CyberPower used the launch of Thermaltake's wild and crazy Level 10 GT case as a springboard to jump into a new series of desktop gaming rigs, the Gamer FTW series. Whether you swing AMD or Intel, there's a Gamer FTW rig for you, and both versions sport the funky Level 10 GT case. Customization options abound, or you can stick with the default configuration and call it a day. For AMD fans, that means shelling out $1,100 for the Gamer Ultra FTW. This one consists of an AMD Phenom II X6 1055T processor clocked at 2.8GHz, AMD 870 motherboard,... Read more...
If you've been searching high and low for a PC enclosure lately, you've probably been overwhelmed by the options. There are simply hundreds upon hundreds of them, and it's often tough to discern which is actually ideal for your needs. Then there's style and price, which always have to be taken into consideration. Fractal Design has impressed us recently with their latest case designs, and the new Core series is growing by one with the launch of the Core 3000. This mid-tower offers plenty of space and plenty of cooling options. You can easily fit seven fans in here, and the upper HDD cage is removable... Read more...
