SilverStone SG03 SFF Case Video Review

Review #852 reviewed Thursday, August 13th, 2009 - 0 Comments

The SilverStone SG03 Case is one of the very best Small Form Factor cases on the market. The reason being is you can fit just about everything you need inside with very few restrictions. That's includes the NVIDIA 8800 GTX/Ultra Video Cards or the ATI 2900XT Video Card. The layout might be different than standard Small Form Factor cases, but this is a good thing because it means improved air circulation. It comes with a 120mm fan at the front which can be repositioned for custom cooling. Another optional 120mm fan can also be added at the front for optimal cooling.

Lian Li PC-A71 Case Video Review

Review #849 reviewed Thursday, August 13th, 2009 - 0 Comments

If you are in the market for a full tower case and you need it to have excellent air circulation, dust filters, plenty of room to work, a removable motherboard tray, lots of drive bays, a sleek look, excellent construction and it has to be all aluminum, than I would strongly recommend checking out the Lian Li PC-A71 Case. There are six 120mm fans and two dust filters at the front, five external 5.25" drive bays and ten 3.5" drive bays. There's no other full tower server case that has these features and weights in at only 9.5kg (21lbs).

Thermaltake LANBOX Lite SFF Case Video Review

Review #848 reviewed Thursday, August 13th, 2009 - 3 Comments

The Thermaltake LANBOX Lite SFF Case really stands alone in many respects. One feature that really sets it apart from the many other small form factor cases (SFF) that are on the market is it's capable of an NVIDIA SLI Video Card setup. This will attract hardware gamers because it means you don't have to sacrifice performance when building a small form factor rig. Another big draw is the modular chassis. The power supply mount, external drive bay cage, internal drive bay cage and motherboard tray can be removed.

Antec P190 Case Video Review

Review #839 reviewed Thursday, August 13th, 2009 - 1 Comments

The Antec P190 Case is based on the original P180 case, but with many improvements. For one, it's a little larger so 12x13" Extended ATX form factor motherboards now fit. Also, there is no space issue fitting the newest very long video cards. The cases fans have also been upgraded. There are now a total of five TriCool fans; two 140mm at the top, one 120mm at the back and bottom, and a 200mm Big Boy fan on the left side panel. It has a cable management system, plenty of drive bays, a snake light, and much more.

Thermaltake BachVx Case Video Review

Review #837 reviewed Thursday, August 13th, 2009 - 0 Comments

When I first saw the Thermaltake BachVx Case I thought Home Theatre PC, because of its piano-black paint finish and brushed aluminum silver front. This case would look excellent next to audio/video gear. There are plenty of drive bays for a mid-tower case, tool-free design and excellent ventilation. I really like the fact they have a large 140mm intake fan at the front of the case. There are even two USB ports, a mic and headphone jack, as well as a eSATA port at the top of the case.

Antec Sonata III Case Video Review

Review #832 reviewed Thursday, August 13th, 2009 - 0 Comments

Generally, cases with a power supply are intended for the budget market. I believe Antec had this in mind with the Antec Sonata III Case. This product is mostly steel with a stylish plastic front bezel. There are 3x5.25", 2x3.5" (ext), and 4x3.5" (int) drive bays. Conveniently located at the front are 2 USB2 ports, eSATA port, a microphone jack and headphone jack. There is one included Antec Tricoool 120mm fan at the back and an optional 120mm fan can be installed at the front. Overall, this is a great case and they include an excellent high efficiency 500W power supply.

NZXT Hush Case Video Review

Review #831 reviewed Thursday, August 13th, 2009 - 2 Comments

The NZXT Hush Case is a great overall product and it's affordable. When NZXT built this case from the ground up they had a couple of things in mind. The first was to build a quiet case and also a case that provides excellent air circulation. With sound dampening material inside the case on the side panels, bottom, top and front, it's quiet. They include two 120mm fans which provide great air circulation. There are lots of drives bays and it has a stylish appearance.

Lian Li PC-A12 Case Video Review

Review #827 reviewed Thursday, August 13th, 2009 - 1 Comments

If you are in the market for a quality mid-tower case and you are on a budget , I would strongly recommend you check out the Lian Li PC-A12 Case. It comes with a stylish look, it's all aluminum, has two 120mm fans, and there's an adequate number of drive bays (4x5.25", 2x3.5" external, and 3x3.5" internal). My only real grip with this product is, it doesn't have a removable motherboard tray. Watch the video to find out more and check out the bloopers at the end.

Thermaltake Kandalf LCS Case Video Review

Review #807 reviewed Thursday, August 13th, 2009 - 0 Comments

The Thermaltake Kandalf LCS Case combines a fantastic case with lots of excellent features and a brilliant water cooling kit that performance very well. More and more companies are putting together these case and water cooling combinations. This really makes sense because with today's computer hardware getting faster, a water cooling system will keep things cool. Also, if you prefer a quiet computer system, a water cooling setup is really the way to go. Watch the video to find out more and check out the bloopers at the end.
