We’ve been impressed with what we’ve seen recently from Corsair, and we were glad that the company saw fit to send us a couple more mid-tower cases to pore over and test: the Corsair Carbide 300R compact gaming chassis and the Obsidian 550D quiet case. The two are dissimilar from one another in terms of design and purpose, but we’ve rolled them into a single review here for efficiency and your reading pleasure. The 300R is a compact case; squeezing in everything a gamer would want was no doubt quite a design challenge (e.g. our big CPU cooler that barely fit). And although this... Read more...

Corsair is launching a brace of mid-tower cases to round out the Obsidian and Carbide series respectively. The new cases are priced at $89.99 for the lower-end 300R and $159 for the more expensive Obsidian lineup.

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.

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...
