Video Review #732: Zalman HD135 HTPC Case

This product has Home Theatre PC case written all over it. It not only looks great and is quality built, but it comes with a Vacuum Florescent Display (VFD) and a fantastic remote control. One important feature about this case is that it fits all standard ATX hardware but remains slim, and this is a testament to its excellent design. A much more powerful system can be built using standard ATX hardware over micro ATX. This is especially important if you are building a gaming HTPC. Watch the Video to find out more...

Video Review #1017: NorthQ 3590 Siberian Tiger II CPU Water Cooler

The NorthQ 3590 Siberian Tiger II CPU Water Cooler is completely closed and sealed, so there is no maintenance required. This means no refills are required and no risk of leaks. Since it's completely configured there's no need for any extra installation like many other liquid cooling kits. By combining the waterblock, pump, reservoir, and radiator together, it reduces the traditional four-component loop into just one-component. This substantially decreases the space required for installation and it really simplifies the installation process over traditional water cooling kits.

This case has lots of drive bays, great air circulation, SIM. System Intelligent Management and the control unit is located here. The software that's included give total control over the fans and it also shows fan and temperature information.
