We always see a lot of great new gaming gear at CES, and the fun is already starting for next week’s show. Rosewill is teasing some new gamer-friendly devices in its lineup today.   Rosewill is building on its line of mechanical keyboards with a new board that features a dual LED backlight. The Helios RK-9200 uses red and green backlights to help you tell keyboard sections (or individual keys – each key is individually lit) apart at a glance. For key switches, your options will be Cherry MX Blue (loud, tactile), Brown (light tactile, somewhat loud, a favorite of many gamers), Red... Read more...
When we reviewed the Corsair Carbide Series 300R in April, we were impressed with the compact gaming case's sturdiness and accommodating interior. (Though, we were a little less excited about its noise.) One thing the case didn't have was a way to show off just how much hardware you can fit into it. After all, this is a gaming case, which means you're going to have components with some sizzle - you might as well show off your stuff when you truck the Carbide 300R to the next LAN party. With this update, Corsair remedies that problem. The case now sports a window that covers most of the side panel.... Read more...
Early last year, Antec launched their gaming line of cases with the Antec Nine Hundred - instantly garnering praise throughout the PC enthusiast crowd.  It's main claim to fame was the complete openess of the front bezel, using perforated bays and 120mm fans to keep airflow rushing inside.  Also notable was the expansive interior, bottom-mounted power-supply unit, and oversized "Big Boy" 200mm fan placed at the top that allowed some massive cooling over the CPU socket area.  We were able to take a look at the Nine Hundred ourselves and were pretty impressed overall, although we noted...

As enthusiasts, we're always looking for the next great design in computer cases. We're eager to see companies innovate in various areas of design, including cooling, tool-less installation, and style. When we see a new case hit the market, we often hope that it is made of aluminum, includes quiet 120mm or larger fans, and is easy to work in. We like aluminum because it usually looks good and is typically lightweight. We prefer the convenience of tool-less installation features because we are frequently swapping out parts. We happen to have a new case in the labs that meets some of these... Read more...
Heat as you all know is one of the main enemies of the PC and its many components.  Just visit any PC Hardware-related site out there today and you will find whole sections devoted to heatsinks, coolers, etc., the sole goal of which is to cool down the ever growing number of heat producing components in a typical PC.  Motherboard manufacturers have also jumped into the fray, providing their own customized cooling solutions, ranging from passive heatsinks linking the CPU, NorthBridge, and SouthBridge to the oversized Turbo coolers than we found on the Gigabyte G1-Turbo a few months back....

Air cooling at it's best? That's a pretty bold statement to make, but as ExtremeMHz reports, the AeroCool ExtremEngine 3T might just pull it off. Equipped with 140mm fans, this could be the best choice for you if you don't want to take a chance with water. "When I first heard about this case, I just had to get my hands one as I've been patiently waiting to see which company would jump the gun and release a case with fans larger than 120mm. When it comes to PC cases, all manufacturers have really hit a standstill in terms of providing better air... Read more...

Hey folks, there's little news in at the moment, but we do have some decent articles for the SuperPower XP02 Case, the NextStar 2 External 5.25" Enclosure, and a review for some apparently good overclocking ram(PDP Systems PC3200 XBLK). SuperPower XP02 Gaming Case Review @ 3DXtreme "Today 3DXtreme presents their latest review of a modded mid tower case by SuperPower.
