When sleek, minimalism, mid-tower framework, and expand-ability are on your must have list, the Antec P70 does a great job. It is accommodating for power users while maintaining a simplistic approach. The name of the game here is silence, with the P70 casing boasting modest sound interruption from your PC just to still know its turned on but not enough to feel like you're taking off a Boeing 757.
The PC industry doesn't suffer from a lack of case manufacturers, however, there are case manufactures and then there are companies blessed to have engineering excellence. Every now and then I am blown away by the depth of insight and excellence of a product. Sometimes it happens often enough with a particular company that I know someone behind the scenes really knows their stuff. To get it right often enough shows real talent, and its important that you as the consumers realize what a big part that should be in your buying decision. Thermaltake is a name I have known for years as I watched the company grow from small heatsinks and peripherals to the PC powerhouse they are today. I am the Editor in Chief at TechwareLabs.com and on my desk today Im pleased to have the new Core X1 ITX case. Take note, your going to hear a lot about this awesome enclosure and the talent it takes to make a case this good.
The Cooler Master Storm Trooper case has been out for a while. Today we check out a system install into this case and bring you our real life testing and experience. Is this an easy install, or is your money better spent elsewhere? Watch what happens as our Josh Martin takes the Trooper out for a spin, you may be surprised by what he found.
Today we are taking a look at one of Thermaltake's top of the line cases, the Core V71. This full-tower beast has a subtle curved mesh exterior, a fully modular internal design, a massive amount of built-in air cooling, and support for a monster water cooling setup. Read on to see how it performs.
Today we are looking at the Urban T81, a case aimed to appeal more to the high end enthusiast market. The flagship T81 is Thermaltake’s newest addition to the Urban line of cases that are geared towards a more streamlined professional look that can be used at home or at the office. Thermaltake’s motto for the Urban T81 is “Simple, Yet Elegant”. I believe those words hold true, but the real test that determines whether this case is worth the price tag is the features, modularity, and build quality.
There are two main schools of thought when it comes to enthusiast case design. One can be thought of as attention-seeking: make it as flashy, splashy, and eye catching as possible. The other is most often described as minimalist: strip the design down to bare essentials, keep the design accents subtle. Fractal Design has an established reputation in the second school, and today we’re going to be taking a look at one of their latest efforts: the Define R4.
