Video Review #878: Gigabyte 3D Mercury Water Cooling Case

The Gigabyte 3D Mercury Water Cooling Case has everything you would want in a case and a water cooling kit. The case is aluminum, lots of drive bays, excellent air circulation, plenty on drive bays and great looks. The water cooling system in this case is one of the best integrated kits that I've seen to date. It's installed in such a way that it doesn't interfere with computer components and it super easy to maintain. There are also extra fittings to allow additional optional waterblocks to be added in a snap. If you're in the market for a water cooling case, this one is rules supreme!

Video Review #881: SilverStone TJ10 Case

Like the TJ09 case the SilverStone TJ10 Case is exceptional right from the outside to the inside. It has looks fantastic, very well designed and constructed, it's also all aluminum. Being made from thick aluminum gives the case rigidly but it also adds weight. The sophisticated structure is second in stiffness only to the unibody designed TJ07 case. There are plenty of drive bays, excellent air circulation and the motherboard tray is removable. It fits all types of ATX motherboards, long power supplies and full length video cards. For a mid-tower case, this product rocks!

Video Review #1038: SilverStone Raven RV01 Case

The SilverStone Raven RV01 Case is available in a black color with or without a window. It has a reinforced plastic outer shell & an .8mm steel body. It has a number of very unique features, one of them being that the motherboard tray is rotated 90 degrees clockwise. So instead of having the motherboard's I/O shield plate and expansion slots at the back of the case they are at the top. This frees up the back of the case for things such as a large radiator. This case also has lots of drive bays, great air circulation, radical styling and so much more. Watch the video to find out more...

Video Review #1039: NZXT ZERO 2 Case

NZXT ZERO 2 Case is an affordable case which falls into the budget category. It's only available in black and it's steel except for a few plastic parts. Since it's mostly steel it's really sturdy but this means it's really heavy. It does come with 3 120mm fans so air circulation is great and more fans can be added. There are also lots of drive bays and a tool-less drive bay design. Watch the video to find out more...
