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, and Rosewill, the Antec P280, Corsair C70, Fractal Design R4, and Rosewill R5 and have the full... Read more...

Fractal Design cases have been popping up a lot more frequently these days, but not all of them have been easy to locate.

If you've been searching high and low for a PC enclosure lately, you've probably been overwhelmed by the options. There are simply hundreds upon hundreds of them, and it's often tough to discern which is actually ideal for your needs.

Come to think of it, it has been quite some time since we have seen a PC enclosure that truly blew us away. Thermaltake's Level 10 will always hold a special place in our hearts, but outside of that, the custom enclosure market has been a little more quiet than usual. Thankfully, Fractal Designs is kicking the new year off with a bang. The new Define Mini is a smaller version of the Define R2/R3 case. This is a Micro-ATX version, meant to satisfy the needs of PC builders with minimal space to give up. It's also focused on keeping noise to a minimum, so it may be better suited as an HTPC than a gaming rig. There's a patent pending feature that stands out: ModuVent. This allows you to choose whether... Read more...
