Well, this is crazy. The case shown here just might be the most strangely designed PC chassis that we have ever seen, and we have definitely seen some strange ones in our day. It's designed by Lian Li, which is a company that's well known for putting together some pretty intense designs. The company calls this "a piece of art," and we guess we can see that. The PC-U6 Cowry case is an aluminum shell that really looks like a seashell. Maybe it's the perfect case to get for your beach-house PC? Inside of this crazy thing, there's room for three 3.5" HDDs and two 2.5" HDDs, and all of the HDD mounts are tool-less. There's a single 5.25" drive at the top of the front-panel, and you'll find four ventilated... Read more...
One of the more serious issues with most full-size gaming towers is noise. Not really heat -- there's plenty of room for fans -- but those fans end up making a ton of noise. NZXT has just released their H2 Classic Silent chassis, which is one of the sleeker cases that we have seen. It provides a layer of noise dampening foam that keeps internal noise from escaping the chassis, and a magnetic fan cover on the top 140mm fan adds another element of silence, but can be removed if the user prefers to maximize cooling.  Efficient airflow is further achieved with a unique 3 phase fan controller that allows enthusiasts to adjust speeds at 40%, 70%, and 100%.  The removable touch powered fan...

It's baaaack! Thermaltake Level 10 gaming chassis was easily the most amazing, wild and unique looking cases on the market during its heyday, but we suppose that heyday ends now. The reason? The second version! Thermaltake knew that they had to keep a good thing going, so version two has arrived.

When it comes to PC cases, the choices are endless. You could hunt for days and days and not run out of options, but only a few really rise to the top in terms of flexibility and design. BitFenix is hoping to join that elite group with the new Colossus Venom and Windows cases. These are two new variants of the Colossus full-tower PC chassis, and they've definitely got style. The Colossus Venom Edition was actually just a prototype a few months ago, but after lots of demand from those at Gamescom 2010, the company decided to commercialize it. Colossus Venom Edition uses the same design as the original Colossus, but allows users to select between green or red lighting at the push of a button. This... Read more...
If there's one company that loves customizations in the gaming PC business, it's iBuyPower. These guys are usually first out of the gate with offering new gear from CPU and GPU suppliers, and now they're staying at the front of the field with newly painted LAN Warrior II models. The LAN Warrior II is one of the more popular gaming enclosures on the market right now, and we suspect they'll become even more so after this. As gamers look for new ways to customize their rig and show off at LAN parties, iBuyPower is helping out with a new line of painted models. The new models are available in 4 new colors: Blue, Red, Green and Orange. The newest editions feature a colored border front with a black... Read more...

Thermaltake is really known for two things: cases, and the Level 10. The Level 10 really put the company on the map this year, as it's easily the most incredible, towering PC chassis to be sold at large to the adoring public. But not every person is interested in a giant, $500+ case. So Thermaltake is continuing to innovate, bringing out new options for those who haven't seen a reason to upgrade their enclosure in a decade. The company's newest mid-tower is a real winner: the V9 BlacX Edition. It's the world's first mid-tower chassis to have an integrated dual-bay docking station right in the front, which allows for easy swapping of 2.5" and 3.5" SATA hard drives. If you've ever had a spare HDD... 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 acoustic profile carefully modeled after a Boeing 727 The option to install a front-mounted case fan...

If it's flashy, big, colorful and can hold everything you need in a great PC, it's probably made by Lian Li. The company that consistently delivers eye-popping PC enclosures has struck once again, this time with a mid-tower that you won't need a forklift and a 10-foot door in order to get into your gaming lair. The new PC-8FI is still a dazzler, and as usual, Lian Li's charging you enough that you never forget that "love at first sight" moment. Specifications include twin intake 120mm fans (and 1 exhaust), a single 140mm fan hole for another fan, 7+1 PCI slots, up to 7 3.5" hard drives mounts, USB 3.0 support and colors including "spider-edition red," black or silver. The dimensions of the PC-8FI... Read more...
Leave it to Lian Li to create a PC enclosure that you want so badly, but your wallet simply can't stand the sight of. The company's latest beast is the new TYR PC-X2000F, which is described as being an HTPC/Gaming chassis. We're not quite sure what kind of HTPC is this huge, but maybe if your entire downstairs is a cinema, this would fly. The new, all-black case is stunning, with room for Extended ATX, ATX, and Micro-ATX motherboards. There are four tool-less ODD bays, seven tool-less HDD mounting arcs, a fan control switch, four USB 3.0 ports, one eSATA port, three 140mm fans on the front and two 140mm fans at the rear. Needless to say, there's plenty of room for Blu-ray drives (or an even an... Read more...
NZXT is well known for delivering pretty wild looking PC enclosures, and while Lian-Li is as well, at least NZXT keeps pricing somewhat reasonable. The company's latest is the Vulcan, an m-ATX chassis that will be available to purchase by the end of the month. It's a member of the company's Crafted Series, and it integrated an array of advanced features into a compact solution with a built-in rubber coated handle for easy transport to LAN parties. The Vulcan ships with a pair of 120mm fans, a 200mm fan, and an 80mm front fan, so keeping things cool should be easy. There's an all-black inside, wire routing holes, a LED control swtich and a CPU heatsink backplate cutout. The greatest news of all... Read more...
