Today we're reviewing a series of mid-tower cases at a variety of affordable price points. These four cases are all marketed towards enthusiasts and ship with what were once considered upscale options, including external water cooling mounts, multiple 120mm fans, screwless installation, removable case vents, and board cutouts for easy third-party heatsink installation. That's great news if you're tired of seeing full towers get all the high-end love from case manufacturers, but it makes the prospect of picking a single enclosure a bit daunting. We've rounded up options from Antec, Corsair, Fractal,... Read more...

With a new like Predator, you should probably expect to be scared. And even for PC enthusiasts, the new Predator G5910 is mighty scary to look at. Acer's gaming beast has just been updated, and the component list is no joke. It's a towering tower, put together to offer superior gaming and multi-media performance for those with a) the space and b) the money. The tower itself is daunting, and a serious looked. It's also enormous, so it'll probably be reserved for those with 2-bedroom apartments (as opposed to those tight studios). But of course, if power's all that matters, we're sure even those...

Need a new tower for your desktop or workspace? Lenovo has a new one to consider. The ThinkCentre M75e Small Form Factor and ThinkCentre M75e Tower have just been announced, both of which are generally aimed at enterprise customers but could definitely work in just about any place of business, including your home office. The M75e is the first of Lenovo's M Series platforms to use AMD processors (Athlon II and Phenom II), and both are designed to handle two displays right out of the box without a discrete GPU requirement. But, if you add the ATI Radeon HD 5450 (512 MB), the M75e can drive four displays.... Read more...
What's half desktop, half beast, and more than you could ever afford? You're looking at it. NextComputing is a company with a history of creating super expensive, arguably portable desktops that are rugged to the core. The new Vigor Evo fits the bill, and it's definitely one of the strangest machines we have seen in recent memory. It was created for military and homeland security operations, which means that it's perfectly suitable for any wild forest mission you may have up your own sleeve. This is a "stand-alone" portable workstation, with three built-in HD monitors, multiple PCI Express Slots,... Read more...
Need a new machine? Not content with the stock options out there? As any real modder and hacker would advise, you should probably consider an overclocking rampage. But not without some help, of course. Maingear is a long-standing player in the custom PC business, and in order to gain a leg-up over the mass-market competition, they're announcing new Super Stock options that will boost the performance of everyday parts while still providing a warranty to end-users. The Super Stock options on the SHIFT "personal supercomputer" includes an overclocked processor, liquid cooling and custom paint options.... Read more...
The custom gaming PC business is still booming, and people are still looking for ways to get creative and make their own builds unique. Antec has been a long-time case and power supply maker, and the company's newest chassis is definitely one of the more interesting ones that have been introduced in recent years. It's called the LanBoy Air, and it's an open-air chassis that is designed quite differently from most. The case uses top-to-bottom mesh construction, which provides for tons of airflow. There are also five 120mm fans and space for ten more, and since it's huge, you can fit up to 11 total... Read more...
The Femtocell. It's a strange name for a device, almost sci-fi like, but these units are becoming more and more popular around the globe as demand for mobile connectivity grows at a far faster rate than the one at which new towers are being erected. The femtocell is a fantastic solution to a problem that isn't going away any time soon, and if you aren't sure about what they are, here's a brief description: Sprint's Airave and AT&T's 3G Microcell are both femtocell devices. You plug these into your home broadband connection, and they create a miniature cell tower or sorts within your home. Now... Read more...
When we sat down to review Corsair's acclaimed 700D and 800D chassis, we couldn't help reflecting on how much the PC case market has evolved over the last decade. Ten years ago, when we were cutting our teeth on CPUs with code names like Coppermine and Thunderbird, enthusiast enclosures were few and far between. In a market that's now literally teeming with options from a variety of established manufacturers, however, how do Corsair's brushed-metal beauties measure up? Let's find out...

When we sat down to review Corsair's acclaimed 700D and 800D chassis, we couldn't help reflecting on how much the PC case market has evolved over the last decade. Ten years ago, when we were cutting our teeth on CPUs with code names like Coppermine and Thunderbird, enthusiast enclosures were few and far between. With the exception of Lian-Li, which was building $200+ all-aluminum nerd artwork even back then, the majority of the companies providing cases to the DIY market were busy churning out beige boxes with features that included: Complimentary Band-Aids 1x 80mm 6000 RPM rear fan with an...

The most memorable case of the past year? That honor definitely goes to the Level 10 chassis from Thermaltake. But considering the super high price point, it's not exactly a case that most average consumers can touch. It's also huge, so that's yet another reason to take it in from afar. But we have to admit: the latest enclosure from NZXT is pretty high up on the "weird, but in a good way" list. If you've been looking for a new case to fit in your outdoor bungalow or mountain cabin, this might just be the one. The new Tempest EVO Camo is probably the most otherworldly case that we can recall seeing... Read more...
