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...
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...

Hey folks! The weekend news is rolling steady, and now it's time for a post. Enjoy! RAIDMAX Samurai XE 901 Case @ MHW "As noted earlier in the intro the Samurai's unique design comes courtesy of a molded plastic hard shelled exterior attached to a steel frame. This manufacturing method greatly reduces costs over a comparable one piece steel only design. Unfortunately, the steel skeleton means the case is heavy, weighing in at nearly 25 pounds."

Shuttle XPC SD31P SFF system review @ Xtreme Resources: "After the release of new CPUs and technologies, every company had to evolve their products and refresh their line-up. Shuttle was no exception too, although perhaps they had the hardest of time making the move, since they had to fit every new technology (ranging from Dual Core CPU support to SATA-II support) into a tiny box. So the masterful engineers of Shuttle designed the SD31P; an XPC claiming to be a pocket-size supercomputer, versatile and powerful enough to fit any house and office. Since Shuttle was nice enough to provide us... Read more...
RaidMax X1 ATX Gaming Case @ Bigbruin.com: "Raidmax continues to impress by offering unique, high quality items at a reasonable price. The Raidmax X1 case is no different... The X1 isn't as flashy as some of the recent "gaming" cases, but does retain enough of the "gaming" case feel with the front LCD, hidden drive bays, and a beautiful side panel." MSI NX7800GTX SLI @ Viperlair: "While we have a lot of praise to bestow upon the MSI NX7800GTX-VT2D256E, there isn't much we can say that we haven't already done so for the 7800 GTX in general. It's fast, occupies... Read more...

The Dual-Core War: Is Intel in Trouble? @ CoolTechZone: "After years of anticipation, dual-core microprocessors are finally a reality. Both Intel and AMD were touting dual-core microprocessors as the inevitable future, and something that would certainly take computing to the next level. At numerous tradeshows and computing conventions, analysts and media predicted the launch date of multi-core CPUs; some said Intel would be the first to bring its chips to the market while others stated the opposite. Whatever the speculations, Intel was indeed the first one to introduce its dual-core chips.... Read more...
Anyone up for some late night news? For the insomniac in you, we have reviews for products from Thermaltake, MSI, RaidMax, and Altec Lansing. I'd like to chat more, but as my vision becomes a little blurrier, I realize I probably should get some sleep, so good night :) Thermaltake Fanless 103 @ Phoronix "Large heatsinks are quite a hit these days, and the Fanless 103 from Thermaltake is no exception. In fact, it's so big that we just had to nickname it "Big Blue." The largest question we have for Big Blue is: can it in fact take the pressure that other heatsinks with fans can handle,...

  The Raidmax Aluminum Series PSU 400 Watts of Goodness... By, Robert Maloney June 30, 2002 The Power Supply Unit (PSU) is a critical system component, however, it is often overlooked when building a system. An inferior power supply, or an underpowered one, can cause interference with other components, automatic system rebooting, drive errors and other problems than can be very hard to diagnose. An inferior PSU can also cause trouble if you expand your hardware, such as an upgrade to a new high-en Athlon XP or a Pentium 4, which may require more current than the cheap supply can provide, or...
